Magic and magical creatures. Immortal gods and goddesses. History and mythology. Strap in for this action-packed YA novel that that takes place over the days leading up to World War II, when Ziva must rely on her wit and magic to outmaneuver Nazis and ancient Egyptian gods to prevent global destruction.
Ziva has one memory of her parents, made the day they abandoned her on the streets of New York City when she was three years old. They left her with only a memory and a promise that she had a great and terrible destiny.
Fifteen years later, Ziva discovers that destiny includes powers that she doesn’t understand and can barely control. Her magic attracts vicious, otherworldly monsters, and eventually compatriots to help her fight them. Sayer and Nasira know the secrets Ziva doesn’t; that Ziva is descended from Egyptian royalty and in possession of ancient magic passed down from the time of the gods. They promise to teach Ziva to control her magic and to give her the family she’s always yearned for.
But trouble is brewing in the world around them; darkness is descending on Hitler’s Germany, threatening World War II. As the last heir of a revered Egyptian queen, Ziva is the only one with the power to prevent another costly global conflict. As Ziva navigates her newfound abilities and makes a connection with Anubis and other Egyptian gods, the Nazis are hunting for the ultimate weapon, and Ziva has caught their interest.
Wardens of Eternity is a wonderful YA read!
From mythology to the action, this makes for an exciting read. Ziva is living alone in New York. Day after day, she struggles to survive. Then one night her whole life changes.
I was captivated right from the start. The setting of the story mixed with the magical aspect, let me escape into another world. Nice job Miss Moulton. The story is rich with mythology and I was delighted about Egyptian culture being intertwined into the story. The characters were good. I liked them all! Yes, even the bad ones. I also loved that I didn’t see that ending coming.
This is a charming and enjoyable read. I hope there is more to come. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I look forward to reading more by her. This is one page turner you should check out! I give this 4 stars.
