Book Blurb:

After his mom disappears, Jason Lex and his family move to a small town where he has no friends, no fun, no life. Things get worse when he’s chased by weird flying creatures that only he can see---Jason thinks he’s losing it.

But when Jason discovers new information about his family, he’s stunned to learn that creatures like Skyfish, Kappa, and the Mongolian Death Worm aren’t just stories on the Internet---they’re real and they live unseen alongside the human race. Many of these creatures naturally emit energy capable of incinerating humans. An invisible shield keeps these creatures hidden and protects the human race from their threatening force, but someone, or some thing, is trying to destroy it.

Unsure who he can trust, Jason is drawn into the fight to save the people closest to him, and he finds help in surprising places. Confronted with loss, uncertainty, and a devastating betrayal, Jason must make a gut-wrenching decision:

Who lives, and who dies.

My Review:

With strong character development and intriguing imaginative world ‘The Rampart Guard’ by Wendy Terrien is definitely distinctive. The cover of this book doesn’t make it look appealing. So, simple tip, don’t judge a book by its cover.

The author has great command over the words; she has created an intrigue world which seems more realistic. The character of Jason, a fourteen year old kid is well portrayed. He dealt with many obstacles and finally embraced the truth, which destiny had decided for him. The writing style is crisp and none of the scenes are exaggerated. The plot of the story is simple and the story line moves with smooth pace.  

The only thing I want to highlight that if I were a high school student, then I would’ve enjoyed the story a little more. I will give it 3.75 out of 5 stars for the well story line and author’s writing style. This novel is appealing to those, who’re high school students or paranormal, fantasy and adventure fans.  

About The Author:

Wendy Terrien has been writing stories since she was in grade school. Her debut novel The Rampart Guards (February 26, 2016) is the first in her urban fantasy series. 

Inspired by an episode of Bones that suspected a killer to be a fabled chupacabra, Wendy was fascinated and dove into research about cryptozoology - the study of animals that may or may not exist, or cryptids. Pouring over stories, videos and photographs of creatures others had seen all over the world, Wendy developed her own story to share with middle grade, young adult and grown-up readers.
