Good working in of Egyptian culture and mythology and the story of how Ziva came to be abandoned on the streets of New York and what happens when her power appears is a good hook. Overall, I liked the story, but there were two things that jumped out at my editor eye, One was the mention of jets when they landed in Cairo. That was in 1939, a year or so before that might have happened. The other was the implication that their motorcycles ran on diesel, something that didn't happen for many years. Nit picky, maybe, but distracting to me. I also felt the emotionality at the end was a bit labile and made the end feel rushed. Despite these criticisms, I like the story. ( )

Egyptian mythology meets World War II in an intriguing adventure between gods and weapons.

Ziva was left alone on a street in New York when she was about four years old, grew up in an orphanage, and tries her best to survive while working a hard job. She's usually hungry, and plays with the idea to use her magical powers to make her life better. When she's attacked by Egyptian creatures right out of the mythology and saved by two warriors, her life takes a massive turn. Soon, she's training to fight off evil and fulfill her destiny before war destroys them all.

I love the cover on this one and the surmise sounded great. So, I was excited to get my hands on an ARC copy. The idea of mixing Egyptian mythology and fantasy into that time of history is a refreshing twist. Throw in the insecurities of a young girl as she tries to figure out who she is and what she should do, and it's a fun read. There's a lot to enjoy, plenty of action, and a world especially mythology fans will enjoy.

I did enjoy the first pages quite a bit, since they do grab up and present Ziva as a wonderful person, who has a ton of bad luck. It's easy to sympathize with her and feel for her. Her powers come a little unexplained, but then the meshing of the two worlds takes a bit to settle in. There are so many aspects to enjoy as magic comes into play along with the monsters, but there are also a few logic burps. Even Ziva's reactions confused me at times. The romance is more instantaneous than I prefer, but it works fine. I did keep wondering what was going to happen next. Some sections flowed rather slow, which might have to do with the very detailed descriptions, at times.

All in all, it's an intriguing twist into history and fantasy, and is a fun read to pick up and dive into. I'm giving this one 3.5 stars and rounding up. I received an ARC copy and enjoyed it enough to want to leave my honest thoughts ( )

Ziva Ellison has been on her own for most of her life and never truly understood where she fits in New York society. When powers attract monsters—and people with the answers she needs—she embarks on an adventure she could not have anticipated, one full of Egyptian mythology and World War II drama, secrets and betrayal and even a bit of romance.

"I’d always been so afraid that receiving someone’s pity and sympathy would make me feel weak and sorry for myself. I’d been so wrong. This was compassion, and it made me feel like I wasn’t alone anymore."

Courtney Allison Moulton’s Wardens of Eternity has an incredible premise, a few great twists, and an ending that left me wanting more. While I felt a touch confused at times, I still enjoyed my time with this YA historical fantasy, and if you are a reader of the genre, I bet you could, too.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )
