"Wow, wow, WOW! That's literally all I can think right now. I thought Caretaker was complex and intriguing, but Guardians takes it to a whole new level. . . . For someone like me, who likes reading about the history of a world and everything there is to know about it's government, military, people, economy, and basically everything that makes up a country or a planet . . . this was crazy delicious." —5 Star Reviewer
“Great book!! The story picks up with the same characters as they've settled onto their new planet. In a world much different than ours where alien encounters are now common, we get to know the people and their struggles. The class warfare and societal issues are a strong theme. The story is a fast-paced read that keeps you engaged. This book has more sci-fi elements than book one, but it's done well and is easy to follow. Wonderful read!" —5 Star Reviewer
Trapped on a hostile planet.
Life on Minea isn’t all that the shiny brochures back on Earth promised the passengers of Ship 12-22. In order to survive, most of the population must slave away in the dark, unforgiving caverns of the Yyinum mines.
Ethan’s position as governor proves to be less effective than he hoped as he clashes with the power-hungry companies controlling the planet. While on a surveying ship, Ethan and the crew crash-land into the cavernous depths beneath the Karst Mountains, where a maze of tunnels and slew of fatal dangers block their journey home.
Above ground, a deadly epidemic sweeps the planet, and Ethan’s wife, Aria, is torn between searching the mountains for him and finding a cure. When a mysterious craft appears in the sky, Kaia and her father, Admiral Phillip Reagan, must prepare for a battle with a species they know nothing about.
As their world descends into chaos, can these self-appointed guardians bring hope of survival to Minea?
