This novel is simply a short, sweet, uplifting and gratifying read. It is one to be shared with others just as the globe was meant to be. The author did a wonderful job with all the elements of this book and had me turning the pages swiftly to find out what would happen next. It was a wonderful read.

The quirky humor and character antics had me laughing from page one.
This is a Guardians of Eternity novel from Alexandra Ivy, who proved a long time ago that she truly knows dark and dangerous characters.

This delightful collection of six short stories and two novellas is set in the mythical realm of Gundarland on a planet named Gundar, which, according to Quense, was named after “the omniscient god who accidentally created the universe with an explosive sneeze caused by snorting a larger-than-average dose of His favorite recreational powder.” As you can gather, this work is only for older kids and their insightful parents…

In the end, it is the elegant use of language, the fully realized characterizations, and the effective play of tension and conflict that all come together to make this fantasy novel a wonderful read that continuously moves forward with an irresistible force. It is, in all, a rich and dazzling piece of work!
I'd like to think, after reading this wonderful story, that I have a pair of my own dragons watching out for me. This story proves, yet again, that fantasy and fantastical worlds are far easier to swallow than the one we live in right now. Enjoy!

This book is a great read for anyone. It opens up the mind of the reader while keeping the plot consistent. Those readers interested in Greek mythology, intermingling religious systems and in speculations about the afterlife, Heaven and spiritual beings will be very entertained by the book.

I was truly amazed when I read this book. At first, I thought it would be only vaguely interesting, almost with a gothic-other worldly feeling, but with an ever increasing development of characters and scenes, I found it hard to put the book down
Author: Lev Grossman
A must read for its gripping premise, the fierce energy of the first half, and its frank examination of these flawed yet memorable characters.

There are characters with potential in a compelling fantasy world, and I do hope that they find the adventures they deserve in the sequels to come.
