officialsynop1312, A knight destined to rule…

Jareth Tremaine, the first Duke of Dover, has seen how he’s remembered in history books—either a saint who rules his lands with justice or a religious extremist whose harsh treatment of the church nearly has him executed. But what history doesn’t disclose is that he’s essential to the world’s survival.
After being wounded by ancient Huns using 21st century weapons, a girl is brought to aid his recovery—a girl who would become his duchess and the key to the future of Dover’s Amalgam.

A 21st century girl whose future has not been written…

Elizabet Blackwell isn’t surprised by wormholes. What shocks her is the multi-faceted personality of the titled knight. Sir Jareth is a nobleman, translator, surgeon—and he’s intent on locating and protecting a host. The host, she discovers, is a boy who practically lives in her backyard 700 years into Jareth’s future.

The re-scripting of history for the survival of nature’s attack on mankind…

Together they embark on their life’s journey and discover that they must protect each other even as they prepare the host for his destiny. Their quest must be to ensure the boy is secure and hidden from the evil forces who seek to exploit the power he contains.


Elizabet Blackwell, a modern-day women, found herself tending to a knight’s wounds who also happened to be the Duke of Dover. Jareth, hurt by a 21st century weapon while battling ancient warriors of 1312, was a nobleman destined for greater title.

When the past met the present, things were bound to happen, history may repeat itself, but for everyone’s sake, history must be rewritten. As they time traveled between worlds, Elizabet and Jareth must join forces to protect what the future holds.


Elizabet was quite a character. Snarky, feisty, brave and open-minded. She had the guts to question the future Duke of Dover, a feat most people were afraid to do. Jareth was also something else. He was smart, funny, and could be really annoying too. Their social interactions were quite hilarious sometimes, which made them more adorable.

This was quite an interesting read. I’ve always liked time travel stories and so far, The Guardian proved to be entertaining and action-filled and unique.  I loved how the story progressed but also had me guessing until the end. Only to get dumbfounded with the cliffhanger. Ugh. I need to read what happens next! Seriously!
