My review for The Black Fire Chronicles: Guardians 2 – Patrick the War Man by Kim Rigby, 5/5 stars. It also earns a Pink Quill Book Pick badge (click here for more information.)
I love the Black Fire Chronicles series, and these books about Andrew’s guardians are the perfect addition! Here we find out how Patrick met the Seer and became a guardian, and the events that led to him becoming a soldier in the First World War.
Patrick is a complex character who believes war is the answer to his problems, only to come to realise that life can be so much more. Some of my favourite characters make an appearance too, as the present day is interwoven with Patrick’s memories. Sad, funny, poignant, the story will make you think about events of the past.
Well written and researched, and with great characters and storyline, this book will appeal to older children and adults alike. I highly recommend the whole series!
At the time of posting, the series is discounted to only .99 for each book in the series!
