About the Author
Ann Henrietta Barlow was born in Dumfries, Scotland and moved to England at the age of 14 and currently lives in Malta and Dubai with her husband, Guy. After working for several years as an accountant and then as an independent consultant for computer accounting packages, Ann changed course and worked as a Marketing and Communications Executive based in the Finance Sector. Her love of reading and movies encouraged Ann to start writing at an early age but after starting a family and juggling that with a busy career, writing was put on the back burner. Ann conceived the character Sahara Driver while living full time in Dubai and the concept for The Guardian’s Chronicles took root a short time later. Ann has traveled extensively and become familiar with many different cultures. This epic story explores that diversity.

Sahara is the heroine in this story. Since she was a child, Sahara has seen much death to those close to her. She feels jinxed, but all this changes when she begins to feel something change within herself. She is linked to Romero, a Guardian, who is a protector and not human, but he is good. It is Romero, who has been captured by the evil Barak, who links mentally with Sahara to teach her how to use her new powers.
The dark and evil Barak is the one who must be stopped, as he currently is taking over the world, residing within the body of the President of the United States. There is a lot of violence in this book, but not over the top. The last 1/4 of the book was exciting, as the plan to free Romero goes full force, with the threat of losing to the dark and destroying humanity.
I thought the concept of the story was interesting. I liked Sahara as the heroine, and Romero was good too. But I felt that the one thing that kept me from making this a 4 star, was that the beginning was somewhat of a slow start, and that Barlow used too many secondary characters, many with their own chapters, thereby causing some confusion, especially early on. But Ann Barlow did a good job with her overall writing leading to the climatic ending.
The story is so real that you could feel each of the characters in your heart, I for myself felt Sahara, the main character. She was just an ordinary girl who eventually became extraordinary. I could feel her doubts, her pain, her joy, and her hope. And believe it or not, I even wanted to join the good forces with her to defeat the evil Barak!
I was really carried away by the story and it did taught me a lesson. I was so glad that I had the opportunity to read the book.
Read for yourself and I am sure, in any way, it would change your life as it did mine. It made me realize that I can do extraordinary things like Sahara.
Kudos to the author!
