LoveReading View on The Blood Guard

March 2014 Debut of the Month  The Da Vinci Code meets Alex Rider in a wildly imaginative and non-stop present day adventure series. Thirteen-year-old Ronan Truelove has just discovered he's a member of The Blood Guard - an ancient order sworn to protect the Pure. Suddenly his mother's insistence on martial arts lessons makes sense. Ronan must use all his skills - including ones he never knew he had - to save his parents, the girl of his dreams and the world, in that order.  Perfect for fans of Rick Riordan, Robert Muchamore, Anthony Horowitz and Michael Grant.


The Blood Guard Synopsis

The Blood Guard is set in the present day, but it shows us a world we never knew existed. There are thirty-six truly good souls on earth, who have identities so secret that even they don’t know they are special – or that one day they will be called upon to save the world from a terrible fate. They are guarded by an ancient order of protectors, known only as the Blood Guard.

Thirteen-year-old Ronan Truelove leaves school one day and discovers he's a member of The Blood Guard. He will acquire invaluable skills (in swordfighting, subterfuge and more); learn that he has magical talents he never dreamed of; rescue his parents from certain death and finally fall for the wrong girl and overlook the right one. Only then will he find out his true purpose: guarding a geeky girl computer genius, and by saving her, save the world.

The Blood Guard Press Reviews

“Wildly intense and deviously funny, The Blood Guard has real heart as well as characters you’ll fall in love with. Very cool stuff.”  Michael Grant, author of BZRK and the New York Times bestselling GONE series
