(Guardians of Summerfeld #1)

The Cathedral of Cliffdale (Guardians of Summerfeld, #1)Do you have a favorite magical creature? Discover where all of those fairytale creatures went to survive and fall into a magical tale filled with tension, sense of duty, and a threat to those who live in the enchanted city of Summerfeld. Melissa Delport opens the veil to Summerfeld and invites us in with The Cathedral of Cliffdale where trolls, werewolves, unicorns and dragons live in relative harmony and safety all because twelve guardians protect their secrets and their lives on the Earth plane.

And then there were eleven, an unheard of event, because when one guardian dies, another takes up the cause, the magical artifact and protection of the portal, so why has no one stepped forward? Meanwhile there are those in search of Summerfeld, including the citizens’ most dreaded enemies, the vampires, who seek to destroy everything and everyone. Searching for their “promised land,” gypsies, too, search for Summerfeld to end their nomadic existence.

Quinn is a guardian, but her loyalties and sense of duty now revolve around two small children, no motherless since their guardian mother was killed. As danger grows nearer, Quinn will be faced with monumental decision,s more heartbreak and may find an unlikely ally in, all of creatures, a vampire. Unrest, turmoil and death have come to Summerfeld from within, danger lurks from the outside world, and the guardians are stretched thin, who is behind it all and what do they want? Will the world lose the last survivors of childhood fantasies?

Talk about a unique concept, a fascinating world and characters facing real-life issues all in one fabulously entertaining read! Melissa Delport has opened a portal into a world that bedtime stories are made of and gave it an adult feel while still allowing for the magic of make-believe to feel real. Saddle up your favorite unicorn, tiptoe around the dragon egg, and no need to click your heels three times, Summerfeld awaits!

I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
