Gamain was one of the kingdom's greatest treasures. He foresaw wars, attacks, betrayals. He hadn't, however, predicted his own abduction, or being left to rot inside a cold, dank cell with only a spider for company. The king viewed him as a trusted ally. Determined to get him back, the king sends his second son, Prince Amador, to the rescue, but instead the young prince finds an unlikely ally, the leader of the Rogue Warriors, Michael. He had been sentenced to death, but Amador had seen in him the qualities of loyalty and bravery his own men lacked. Instead of death, he proposed that Michael rescue Gamain. And so begins the story of dreams, visions, and nightmares, where the line between prophecy and imagination is forever blurred, and fate watches with bated breath as destroyer and protector arise.
The Guardians of Rain is an epic fantasy brilliantly crafted by A.Y. Miles. It follows a selection of main characters from a nymph to a prince and those in between, and each character is bursting with their own personality, morals, and depth. There is so much to love about this book; it is an epic fantasy in every sense of the word. The tension is high and the stakes are constantly increasing. A.Y. Miles pays equal attention to character development and world building, giving the plot a fleshed out and realistic feel. Intrigue, danger, morals, honor, and threats fill every page, driving the reader forward in anticipation to discover what will happen next as those in power seek to abuse it and corrupt those whose ear they hold. A brilliant, page-turning read.
