The best Ebook Guardians 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 LOVE THEM. Ahem. This book again follows Ethan, his wife Aria and the engineer Kaia on the planet Minea. Ethan's had a bit of promotion from ship caretaker to govenor, and while I don't necessarily think you must read Caretaker before starting Guardians, I do think it's useful in setting up the story. I finished both books within days of each other so I remembered the history, various characters and overall plot relatively easy. I don't think this is necessarily explained all that well, so might result in someone starting with Guardians feeling a little lost. That said, the plots of both books were quite different, I found. As opposed to the static environment of the first ship, as in Caretaker, there was a lot more scenery to explore on the planet of Minea and opportunities to jump between character perspectives. As with the first book, Guardians started off a bit slow for me, but I feel like that might just be the writing style of the author, because by the time I reached the end of the book I was engrossed. The author really likes to save her action pieces until the last minute, and I have to say I really enjoyed how Guardians ended.That said, the thing I have really liked about this series is its focus on relationships people have with each other, and communication... which is why I was so surprised at how SO MUCH of the drama in this novel was a result of bad communication. Seriously, guys. Anyone who's ever read a book ever knows that you need to be honest about important shit straight up, and not leave it until the last minute! Le sigh. At least you have an excuse when trying to communicate with the new species of aliens introduced.I would definitely recommend this book if you are into a bit of light space colonisation mixed in with a lot of human interaction and a bit of Avatar-esque Big Bad Corporations. I found this to be a fun read that starts off slow but saves all its best punches until the end, and I would absolutely be interested in reading more about Ethan and his family.
