Guardian Angels Review


Guardian Angels by Andrew Weston is an excellent book. It introduces us to our own world as seen through a different lens. It is wide in scope, covering the entire globe and many characters both friendly and less so with a variety of different backgrounds. The book starts and ends with Joshua Drake, a young boy of four, whose full role and importance in the events that follow is still yet to be revealed. Also in the book, we meet Becky, a powerful girl with physic abilities, who is only five years of age and has a lot of unrealized potential.

But in between we follow a number of characters, both Guardian, and not, both with special or physic abilities and those without, provide a global feel and insight into the unique circumstances. If readers are not careful, they might get lost in the colourful personalities that are only seen for a few moments at a time. It is written in a style that pulls you in, but does not go too fast as you miss the important details.

Some intriguing things brought up in the books, are the responsibility of power, and the influence of the media, for both the benefit and harm of the Guardians. A lot of interesting things are brought up about the reception of these Guardians by society. It is almost forgivable that the Guardians seem too perfect, as society starts questioning their saintly motives without a lot of proof to the contrary.

The Guardians make up an interesting organization of people with special abilities, who have operated throughout history for the benefit of the world while developing advanced technology and medicine. Even more interesting is the fact that this organization chooses to make itself known to the world in order to teach and point them in the direction of this advanced technology, and in order to better facilitate finding those with special abilities. The paranoia that this causes in the world’s governments, as well as the hope, and eventual questioning by the people of the world is realistically done. There are hints throughout the book at an otherworldly component to these human beings, although they assure us that they are human.

And of course, the well-meaning Guardians are not the only ones with these abilities. The Council, and other criminal organizations are ideal places for those with special abilities to rise unhindered. These people are the biggest threat to the Guardians, although they are less concerned about them than public opinion giving us a greater appreciation of their power.

The reader only gets the tip of the iceberg as far as the advanced technology and medicine in this book, but what is there is impressive and easy enough to follow. There are hints that much of the Guardians society is not on Earth anymore at all.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in mystery, the ramifications of technology, super-human abilities, and intricate plotting. I look forward to reading other instalments in this series and following the story further.
