Book Description

This is the story of Peter, once heir to the vast territories of the Commonwealth and now last survivor of House Troezon and the holder of the Dragon Seal. Raised in isolation for most of his childhood, Peter ventures out into the galaxy and finds the ruins of the old order while suffering great pains in the terrors of the new.

As Peter struggles to survive in a harsh, new world, he finds comfort in the friends he encounters along the way and ultimately discovers that a bargain made at his birth, might mean the difference between growing up into a man or becoming a god.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for sci-fi readers July 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoy space operas and not many people write them these days. This is a good one. I'd recommend The Guardian if you are a science fiction lover. I would classify the book as young adult, so it's good for that age group but honestly, as an adult, I enjoyed it cover to cover and I'm glad it's a series. There are certainly themes in the book that would appeal to adults. The book is full of action, love, revenge and hope. Overall it was a great story written in a unique way. I'd recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling young adult science fiction July 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Guardian: Volume One represents a compelling piece in young adult science fiction. Peter's struggles are both those that come with growing up and ones we in our world could never truly understand.

With a well developed character cast, natural dialogue, and gripping well paced action, Thackeray has crafted an enthrall in story here for any sci-fi fan, young adult or otherwise. I'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of this series has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Galactic Rebirth July 30, 2014
By Jarrak
Format:Kindle Edition
The Guardian: Vol 1: The Troezon Heir was a recommendation by the author and so I took advantage of the novel being offered for the kindle via the Prime "rental" option and I was overall pleased I did. The blurb hinted at an epic tale backed by the size of the novel, granted length/page count are not reliable pointers towards quality but in this case the story being told needed scope which means page count. I found the novel fairly easy to pick up as we learn of Peter and Marc in their youth, raised in very different environments and circumstances it wasn't a difficult task to see how their lives would merge and push the plot forward which isn't a bad thing because while there may have been a predictable element it doesn't prevent the narrative fleshing out all the details and that is certainly what Linda accomplished. The highest praise I can give the story is that even with all the character building I was never bored or distracted and while 600+ pages can be daunting at first the pacing was kept up weaving a little action, drama and an emotional smack in the face when required. The core of the story mixing high technology science fiction with social, political and military aspects worked very well with the added spiritual side if you can call it that adding something valuable to the whole without taking away the concept that we were dealing with all the human flaws we are familiar with.
While the novel was certain to get a well deserved five stars I was totally derailed upon it's closing paragraphs and I admit I wondered if I had a corrupt download because there was still so much I expected to read within this first volume that was referenced earlier on and after reading the epilogue and putting my kindle down I was quite dumbfounded as to why the story ended where it did.

5.0 out of 5 stars great read September 1, 2014
By Graeme
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book combining a solid base of Sci-Fi with a taste of Fantasy. It is a good length book which holds one captive for its entirety. For me, the best part is that it is different from the normal space operas. It is not reliant on military battles, spaceships etc. merely having a story line and characters set far in the future. It starts with a prologue which tells the reader where story will ultimately end up - not a bad thing as it really is about the journey, isn't it? The author introduces four distinct characters ( two primary) which we meet in early adolescence and follow them through their development as they grow and become friends. I was able to relate with each very easily enjoying their successes, humour, passion and pain. Of course one of the group develops special powers (hence the Fantasy connection) but it is done well and almost believable. The author brings the story to a neat conclusion, without a silly cliff-hanger but laying the ground for subsequent stories in the series. This book is in serious need of editing/proof reading. Fortunately, for me, the story was so captivating, it didn't really matter. One of the best reads this year.

More About the Author

I was born and raised in Singapore but moved to Australia in my teens. I've spent some years in country Australia and then moved to the big city, being Sydney, for work. In recent years, I've decided that the city is too much for me and have moved to a coastal town called Woy Woy (yes, that really its name - it means big water) and have been there since.

Why do I love to write?

In Stephen King's IT, Bill Denbrough asks 'Why can't a story be just as story?'

I think I became a fan of Stephen King just because of that, because that one simple question is how I look at all my stories. I rarely think about the thematic aspects of a story, only that when I have an idea, it just sits in my head until its demand to be heard are met.

My favourite King quote?

"Go then, there are other worlds than these."
