    One thought on “Guardians”

    1. First things first: I received a copy of Guardians from Future House Publishing in exchange for an unbiased review.Ok, did anyone else kiiiind of get an Avatar vibe from this book? Like, people travelling to a new planet to set up a new life, only to be blindsided by the absolute greed of the company they work for? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?I liked this book, and like the first book in the series, Caretaker, I think it's a 3.5- to 4-star read. Seriously though, who is designing these covers?! I L [...]

    2. *I received a copy of Guardians from Future House Publishing in exchange for an unbiased reviewWhen it comes to a second book, everyone hopes it going to be good or they don’t even want to read it because the first was fantastic. I mean, I always get super-duper nervous starting the second part because if it isn’t really good, it ruins the first. You come to an end and BAM, here is the second part—but this time it wasn’t like that.I had a chance to read Guardians and it was really good ( [...]

    3. As a reader of the first book - Caretaker, I got an advanced copy from the publisher to review the sequel - Guardians.The new book starts with a faster pace and more action then the first book, but now we're not alone on a starship but on a colony on a whole new planet.It's few years after Caretaker's colonist ship has landed and Minea doesn't look as pretty as advertised. Planet is run by corporations interested in profit, not research and discovery of the new world. Due to long travel distance [...]

    4. ***I was given this ebook in exchange for an unbiased review***This was a great second book in this series! I loved getting to see how Ethan and Aria and Kaia began their lives on Minea. The story had great continuations and very interesting plot lines to keep interest piqued. There were many crazy twists and different levels of complexity to the story. There were however a few too many abbreviations in the beginning of the story that were hard to follow and made it hard to read like SL and UEG [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book! The author did a great job of introducing many new characters and story lines to this sequel. If you have read Caretaker you'll appreciate how much this book is, in many ways, completely different, and yet very similar. Caretaker takes place on a secluded ship with only two characters interacting throughout the majority of the book. As such, this book has a very different feel due the the pressing number of characters that make up this new civilization. The new charac [...]

    6. Sublime yet againI received this book free for a unbiased opinion and here is what I think. The CARETAKER captured our attention in a complex world and conflicting emotions, now GUARDIANS takes us to a whole new level and spearheaded us straight beyond into a world of new imaginary.Jodi Russell manages to capture our hearts yet again with her in-depth. focus on characters and complex world. She spins intricate details into the history and the making of the world. Every turn had you guessing what [...]

    7. I really enjoyed the first book, and was excited to hear the author had written a second book.; and I jumped at the opportunity when offered a chance to read and provide an unbiased review. However, as the first book pretty much came to a final resolution, I was concerned that I his book would try too hard - I mean, no one wants to read about our hero doing his chores and worrying over the bills. I will admit, there were a couple of moments when I thought, "Oh, c'mon!" Some of it is predictable, [...]

    8. Having been a huge fan of the first book, Caretaker, I dove into Guardians and found that like with the first book, had trouble putting it down.This story had a different feel than the first book because of course, much time had passed and the main character was no longer in the Caretaker role on a ship. In comparison, where the first book had only a few main characters, this book had many unique characters. I found the story line rich in detail and the descriptions of each setting vivid, but no [...]

    9. ★ ★ ★ 1/2 (rounded up)This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.---I did one of those wild and crazy things with this book -- throwing caution to the wind in a daredevil-like fashion -- I read the second book in a series without reading the first book. Gasp!Recklessness, no? It's the kind of nutty thing I used to do all the time in my youth, but haven't really done lately, so I figured I'd give it a try. Yes, there's some history (between the characters, and actual history) that [...]

    10. I received an ARC of Guardians, by Josi Russell from Future House Publishing in exchange for an unbiased review, so let’s get to it shall we? Guardians is the second book in the Caretaker Chronicles, which takes place after the main character, Ethan, has completed the 50-year trip from Earth to the planet Minea for colonization. The upside is that he is given a governing position, reunited with his pregnant wife Aria, and has some new abilities, but the downside is things don’t look quite as [...]

    11. After the hero saves the day, he is supposed to go home and live happily ever after. But life is never that simple.Ethan had just settled in to what was supposed to be his happily ever after with his wife and their new family. He was adjusting well to the side effects his adventure where he saved 4000 people in stasis, when the planet, home to his sunny meadow with the little blue cottage starts to show her ugly side. Natural dangers abound and Ethan once again finds himself in a position where [...]

    12. Good book, well written, but has too many pov, at the start you have to balance how the world, that was not explained in detail before, works. i dont like how Ethan get stagnant, i dont know if this is because the story was never planned to have more than one book, but at times it feels like the chapter was made to fill in the pages, of course at the end you get to know why you had to read so much stuff at the times irrelevant, it was hard to reach chapter 10, but once there it was easy and exit [...]

    13. Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsDo you know what I think is great about this book?? It can be read as a standalone. That being said, I'm really happy I already read Caretaker, which provides history for some of our favorite characters!This novel was certainly more fast-paced than its predecessor, and I think there was more character development here as well. I love the alien planet aspect of this novel, because it allows for some really interesting settings!Another huge difference between Guardians and [...]

    14. * I received this ebook in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.*Guardians is the second book in a series, the first being The Caretaker. This book is well written and keeps you wanting to read more. It takes place on the planet of Minea and Ethan and his wife Aria are lead characters in this adventure. There are surprises and twists and turns throughout with adventure building towards the end of the book. Although I usually don't read fantasy books often, this one grabbed my a [...]

    15. A perfect sci-fi tale to keep you entertained.This sequel exceeded my expectations 100%.This story has no waste, there is so much going on that it is difficult to put down. It revolves around the feeling of family and the lengths we would go to save them. We find gripping and very tense situations that may become claustrophobic, in my case, the feeling of doom and loss, hope and survival. Is full of action sequence and intergalactic battles. A lot of plot twists that would keep you wondering who [...]

    16. First I have to say that I received a copy of this book from Future House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.This book is GREAT! It started off a little slow for me but once it got going I loved it. It has amazing characters and a great story. I will admit that I haven't read the first one yet but I am definitely going to as soon as possible! I would definitely recommend this book to all my friends!

    17. Wow, wow, wow, wow, WOW! Even with the slow start, this was INCREDIBLE. So rich in detail and history. You can tell Russell poured her heart and soul into this story. It was absolutely fantastic!

    18. Robert's ReviewVery GoodRead. I enjoyed meeting the new races and the interesting capabilities they have. Also interesting reading the changes discovered living in the new world from the opening of the book to the ending. I am interested to see how Ethan and his family move on with the Vala in the next book.

    19. Wow! Great adventure!What an exciting story. Definitely read book #1, The Caretaker, first. Book #2 builds on it and just continues to build the characters plus introducing some new players. Never a dull moment in the storyline either.

    20. I really like it. It was about humans on a plant. It is in the future. The main carter name is Ethan. He and some other people get stuck in a cave and they have to find a way out. When they find a way out but they can't get out they find some aliens that help them. At the same time in the town Ethan's wife finds out about a sickness. Latter she finds the cure. There is a big battle between the aliens that want the other aliens and the humans that are defending the aliens that helped them.

    21. As with the first book Caretaker, I had a hard time putting this one down. The book picks up 4 years after the ship reaches Minea, and the passengers have found out that things aren't exactly as they'd been led to believe before they left Earth. The city has been carefully planned, and their ship was never supposed to arrive. Because of this, most of the passengers are finding it hard to fit in and find a place for themselves on their new planet. Because of his part in saving the passengers from [...]

    22. Please note that I was provided a pre-publication copy of the Guardians to review.In the first book in the Caretaker Chronicles, Ethan Bryant survived 5 years as Caretaker on spaceship 12-22, defended his fellow shipmates from a more advanced civilization on the planet Beta Alora and, in stasis, completed the 30-year trip from Earth to the planet Minea. On Minea, Ethan is reunited with his pregnant wife Aria and is elected to a governor position. For most of his shipmates, life in the company-ow [...]

    23. Science fiction or science fantasy?Right away, I want to say that I have no intention of demeaning the author for her story or her work. Whilst the second part of the caretaker chronicles is not as gripping as the first book, it is still a excellent read and the storyline is very solid.For the majority of this novel, I was kept well entertained and the descriptions conveyed to me through the travels in the underground warrens and caves are so vividly scripted that sometimes I actually felt that [...]

    24. I didn't read the first book and would recommend that if you haven't read Caretaker first. I was able to follow along with the backdrop provided but it took me a little longer to piece it together and kept getting the feeling I missed some important action. The author has created a world filled with amazing life forms, abilities and locations. It definitely did not disappoint me with action, drama, betrayal, social issues and of course aliens. The characters are diverse and feel authentic. Aria' [...]

    25. Book One was a bit of a disappointment. The Caretaker failed to impress me even though he had immense powers. But Book Two is a improved version.The Guardians have a challenging task. Here also, the plot revolves around Ethan, the former Caretaker, now a Guardian. However, the story addresses a few socially relevant issues such as unemployment and income equality. The best part is that these are depicted in an alien world. Josi definitely is a writer to watch out for. She has expressed herself m [...]

    26. Please note, I received a copy of Guardians from Future House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.Fans of light literature will enjoy this new entry in The Caretaker Series. The new volume, “Guardians,” by Josi Russell is a description of the lives and struggles of human colonists on this alien planet.The story is a bit hard to follow, introducing a lot of characters very quickly, giving the reader just a short span of time to know them before jumping to the next character. While a t [...]

    27. I received a copy of Guardians from Future House Publishing in exchange for an unbiased review.I was really surprised when I found out that there was going to be a sequel to Caretaker because you can read it as a standalone novel. However I found that Guardians is a very different book from Caretaker because unlike Caretaker there is a lot more going on with a lot of new characters and intertwining stories. In Caretaker, the first half of the story was mostly background information that you n [...]

    28. This book took me a while to get through which was surpising as I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Caretaker. Caretaker was very easy to read and was a thrill and delight to read. Guardians was still a good story but I struggled to get myself invested in the book. This book took me a little under a month to finish, which is a rather long time for me as I usually can finish a book within a couple of days. In the end I purchased the audio book and found myself enjoying the story mor [...]

    29. Please note, I received a copy of Guardians from Future House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.Fans of purple prose will enjoy this elaborately written new entry in The Caretaker Chronicles. Book 2, “Guardians,” by Josi Russell is a rip-roaring romp through the lives of colonists on an alien planet. The story is a bit chaotic, jumping from character to character, giving the reader just a small taste of a character’s arc before jumping to the next character. While a fun an intere [...]

    30. Guardians, is the sequel to Caretaker. You really need to read the first one to understand the second. There is a lot going on and you need all the information to figure it out. It is pretty fast pace, but you can follow along easily and really put yourself in Ethan's shoes and see what he is going through.Basically, Ethan is the governor of hostile planet Minea. You can't go anywhere without seeing some sort of pain or going through something horrific. Below ground, they work in darkness mannin [...]
