Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Meeka has trained her entire life for the ranks of the Sacred Grove. When her plans go awry, she flees her home and joins the Bow Maidens, a band of lethal women warriors. As she struggles to find herself, Meeka discovers her hidden gift: an ancient magic of her ancestors.
Meanwhile, the assassination of the king leaves Adrik, a young monk, next in line for the throne. To save the kingdom from the ruthless duke, Adrik must join forces with an orphaned cutpurse, an oversized monk, and a bumbling aristocrat. Adrik's survival, and that of the kingdom, depend on the alliances and friendships he forges.

An enthralling and masterfully told tale

Would you consider the audio edition of Guardians of the Grove to be better than the print version?

Yes! Hearing the emotion of the characters helped me to feel as though I was a true part of the story

What other book might you compare Guardians of the Grove to and why?

On first glace I assumed Guardians of the Grove would be filled with heart warming lessons much like "Xena the Warrior Princess" however once I began getting into the story I found it to be a twisting and turning epic adventure unlike any other I have encountered.

What about D. Gaunt’s performance did you like?

I felt that D. Gaunt brought just enough emotion to every character to make a true connection to what they were feeling throughout the length and breadth of the tale. She has a masterful way of adding dramatic pauses that truly impact the listening experience.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are so many moments throughout the book that are truly moving. Without giving away the storyline I would have to say that meeting Nuella was the culmination of so many arcs that it has to be my favorite.

Any additional comments?

This story was certainly worth the price. I plan to listen to it over and over again.

This story MUST continue! I am anxiously awaiting the release of The Bow Maiden Chronicles Book 2
