Guardian of Time by Linda Hawley is the second book in The Prophecies series. The story continues to follow Ann as she tries to discover the potential of her paranormal powers and seeks to improve the world. In the first book of the series you are introduced to the characters in a wonderfully in-depth way that makes them seem like old friends when you open up book 2. There are also several minor characters that become much larger parts of Ann's life as this story progresses. If I try to go into the plot I am almost guaranteed to include spoilers for this book and the first so I will refrain from doing so. I will say that getting to know Chow as a larger part of the story was very interesting and he is undeniably my favorite character of this book.
Linda continues to tell the story at a perfect pace. Keeping the information flowing as a part of the story so there are no hiccups in the middle of the chapters. Chapter headings continue to give a location and year to make the flashbacks easy to follow as well as being extremely informative. The biggest appeal of all is that the book takes place in the very near future with current day references making the story easy to visualize and seem frighteningly realistic. The end once again will leave you hanging, and personally I cannot wait for the thrilling conclusion to the series. Well done once again Linda.
