Guardians of the Sky Realms by Gerry Huntman | Book Review + Meerkat Press Blog Tour

Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog! How are you all? I hope well.

Today is my stop in the Guardian of the Sky Realms blog tour and I have a review planned for you.

And now without further ado, lets start with the post.


Maree Webster—an “almost-emo” from the western suburbs of Sydney—hates school, has few friends, and is obsessed with angels and fallen angel stories. Life is boring until she decides to steal a famous painting from a small art gallery that has been haunting her dreams: swirling reds, grays and oranges of barely discernible winged figures. There, she meets a stranger who claims to know her and stumbles into a world where cities float in the sky, and daemons roam the barren, magma-spewing crags of the land far below. And all is not well—Maree is turning into something she loves but at the same time, fears. Most fearful of all is the prospect of losing her identity—what makes her Maree, and more importantly, what makes her human. Guardian of the Sky Realms takes the reader on a journey through exotic fantasy lands, as well as across the globe, from Sydney to Paris, from the Himalayas to Manhattan. At its heart, it is a novel about transformation. Book two of the series will be released in 2021.

Maree discovers that she isn’t who she thinks she is. She is in fact immortal and not a normal teenage girl. However, her journey of discovering who she really is, is becoming a dangerous one.

I found the length of the book amazing. It wasn’t too long and it wasn’t too short. As I currently don’t have much time to read lengthy novels I was quite happy with the number of pages of this one. If you want something quick to read in one sitting, then this is going to be your book.

I had some problems with the writing style but that is due to me not being used to read this style. Other than that I appreciated that the romance didn’t take up much space in the storyline and also that it didn’t slow down the pacing.

The pacing was a fast one, and we went back and forth in the story. I liked that we got to know a bit more about Maree and her journey of discovering who she really is.

Overall, Guardian of the Sky Realms is a great novel about a young teenage girl discovering her past. If you love short paranormal stories that are fast-paced then you might like this book as well.
