Review


Raves for The Prophecies trilogy:

"Dreams Unleashed begins brilliantly with a chase scene that rivals Tom Clancy's best work."

"This modern day 1984 is just as riveting as Orwell's novel, but if I had to choose, really choose, I'd take Hawley's series over Orwell any day. Why? Not only has Hawley created a unique futuristic novel, but she's also done much research into current events of our time, weaving them into her story and making it even scarier than 1984 ever was."

"Linda Hawley's skill is right up there with the best adventure writers, and her books are important."

"It's like a present that you are slowly unwrapping layer by layer."

About the Author

The Prophecies series you're reading, or deciding whether you should read, was born just after the author survived a near crash in a passenger jet. Thankfully, she lived to write this trilogy.

Before Linda Hawley became a full-time author, she supported herself as a freelance writer. Her experiences working on diverse projects requiring significant research stretched and refined her composition skills. It also inspired her to become a novelist.

You may be surprised to learn that most of the technologies, conditions, and places in her trilogy exist. It's the characters and their actions that are pure fiction. Writing The Prophecies as accurate faction (a literary work that is a mix of fact and fiction) requires significant in-depth research, but the author was aided by her many years in the U.S. intelligence community. Her government service certainly aided the believability of this dystopian trilogy.

Linda Hawley is hard at work on another dystopian trilogy, called The ReSociety. You can follow her progress at LindaHawley.com.

GUARDIAN OF TIME is the perfect sequel to DREAMS UNLEASHED. In DREAMS UNLEASHED the author set the foundation for the series to come. She vividly drew the background, slowly pulling me in, taking me captive to her story. There was action, there was intrigue, but I felt like I was just beginning to pull it all together when the cliff-hanger of an ending left me open mouthed. It left me hoping the sequel was soon to be released.

GUARDIAN OF TIME takes off where DREAMS UNLEASHED left me with jaws dropped. It's a fast-paced, action-packed adventure from the get go. Linda Hawley does an exquisite job of bringing together the mysteries presented in DREAMS UNLEASHED, expounding on them in GUARDIAN OF TIME, while continuing to introduce new elements of intrigue and mystery. The scenes are described in a manner that takes the most visually challenged right there in their mind's eye. The story line begins to take a more defined direction. Ann faces betrayal---and unexpected revelations from her past. There is no turning back. Her life is now intricately intertwined with the GOG, an anti-government subversive group. Her mission? Well, I think you ought to read to the book to find out! You won't regret it!

Where Dreams Unleashed set the tone for an action packed adventure, Guardian of Time does not disappoint. From the very first page I was caught up in the story. Not only does it pick up right where Dreams Unleashed left off, but it picks up the action from page one. I was hooked from the very beginning, unable to set it down. Literally, I carried my Kindle into the kitchen and read while I prepared my lunch and ate it. It was THAT GOOD. I read this book in one sitting.

The pacing is very fast, the dialogue crisp. Ms. Hawley also elaborates a little more on Ann's special abilities as she is sucked deeper into the web of rebellion against our controlling government. Convinced she will fight the good fight, Ann is soon swept away from America and into foreign countries in a whirlwind of travel and danger. Most important, Ann is ready. As her purpose comes to life, so do those of the immediate people around her. Shocked by betrayal on one hand and acts of intense loyalty on the other, Ann finds who she can trust in this story. But will they all give their lives to protect her and her amazing gifts? Will she be able to save the world? I guess that's what we'll learn in Book Three...

I went straight from reading Book One in this Trilogy to devouring this book, and I am chomping at the bit, wishing I could move as quickly into the third book. The Author left us at a major cliff-hanger, and the only light in the darkness is the assuring line that she ends her author note with, "this story is, as I believe all stories should be, about hope." That is a paraphrase as I don't have my kindle with me at the moment, but the gist of what she said stuck with me.

I love stories about psychic phenomenon, and that is originally what attracted me to these stories of a Woman whose dreams matter, on a current, world wide, political stage. Then there was the element which both frightens and gives me hope, the real, current events and the knowledge that we have rights and the responsibilities to fight to keep the rights our ancestor's died to give us.

I care about the character and I hate leaving her alone and not knowing where she will end up next. And she will make you care about having the right to care about yourself and humanity.

I love the two books Dreams Unleashed and Guardians of Time. Gripping action and suspense. Incredible characters and a unique story. Unsettling as so much of the story is "could be" modern day on privacy issues and what could be.....

Not wanting Guardians of Time to end as Book 3 is not out yet... Want more.... Linda Hawley is an exceptional writer. If you want a riveting tale of suspense, action and adventure read the series....

Kudos for excellent writing and keeping my attention....

Book Synopsis

It's the near future, and society is government controlled. Technology tracks everyone, personal privacy does not exist, and even food supplies are being monitored. The hope for freedom lies in the operations of an underground organization, GOG, which fights against worldwide oppression. Their most powerful weapon is Ann Torgeson, a paranormally-gifted operative, who unseals The Prophecies with her powers. With the government doggedly pursuing her, she goes underground, fleeing the Pacific Northwest, but not before leaving three murders, one suicide, and an explosion behind her. Will she and her companions survive to change the world after everything twists and turns upside down?

My Thoughts

Not only did Guardian of Time surpass book 1 Dreams Unleashed in terms of action and suspense but it also proved once again that good research, a very thrilling story and excellent characters are well worth waiting for. Ann has quite a few shocks to face in book 2, a betrayal that shocks her to her core and some revelations about past happenings that help explain what is going on in her present day life. Not only did I read as fast as possible but screamed in agony when the cliff hanger ending snuck up on me when I turned that last page. Linda Hawley has created a series that is going to turn certain peoples perspectives upside down when they read the first two books, a story that resonates with our current world and scares me to think just how much of it is really going on without us fully realizing it every day and most of all a series that allows readers to enjoy stepping out of their comfortable box of normal reading preferences for something that will challenge the imagination and at the same time entertain with every page you turn.
