I really enjoyed this book. It was hard to put it down. It had all the necessary elements for an enjoyable read. I liked the idea of a whole family involvement. In times when there are so many fractured families, it is exciting to read a book where there is a family working together showing love and concern for each other. I liked the idea of learning about ancestors and the influence they have in making us who we are.

Gerald Lund has done it again. He is masterful no matter what he is writing. I have read many of his other books and get involved with the characters almost immediately because he can bring them to life through his words.
In this case a young girl (Danni) is given an heirloom by her grandfather on her thirteenth birthday. She knows it is special to him and to her ancestors, but does not know why. Her grandfather doesn't fully explain, but says to keep it with her and to protect it. On her sixteenth birthday she soon will find out why this gift is called "the guardian". Her family and her boyfriend's family are in danger and it is up to her with the aid of her boyfriend (Rick) and brother (Cody) to save her parents, grandfather and protect Rick's family. Through the course of events she discovers the power of the guardian. The story takes place mostly in southern central Utah. An area Lund knows well from other books he has written.
I found that there were many parallels and lessons to be learned by this story. It emphasized the importance of families, friends and the help of others. To know of your heritage and how ancestors are a part of you, and knowing them can help you to discover yourself. The guardian was like a metaphor for spiritual gifts.
This is a great coming of age book that I would recommend for teens, but would be enjoyed by all ages. I intend to give a copy to my granddaughter for Christmas.

This is a great book, easy to read yet very engrossing! I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book to any one young and old. The main character, Danni, is a typical teenager yet seems to come into her own when her family is facing grave danger. It is fascinating to see how she can work through different difficulties and learn more about herself and her heritage.

This is a great family book with all of the wonderful elements of action, adventure, mystery, and a little romance. Since the main character is in her teens, I would think that teens and young adults would enjoy this but it will also make a great read allowed for families. Great job Brother Lund.

I loved this book. Be prepared for an exciting read! Once you're introduced to Danni, you won't be able to put this book down. She is an "enchanting" young teenager and her adventure is loads of fun and surprisingly inspiring. Maybe Danni will have further adventures. I hope so, I started to miss her as soon as I turned the last page. Enjoy!

Format: Hardcover
Gerald Lund is a talented writer and has crafted a new suspenseful story with The Guardian. The book was well edited with interwoven story lines that can appeal to young and experienced readers. There were also underlying themes in this book - the importance of strong family love and bonds, how history & ancestors influenced the present and future, the main character Danni had to learn and grow in difficult situations, and family members made mistakes and sacrifices. This was not my favorite of his books but it was well written and edited, suspenseful, and a family-friendly story.
