    One thought on “The Guardian”

    1. Im so impressed with the way the author wrote this story I don't know where to start. This story was written as a series of interviews that a journalist was investigating. Each Interview the journalist conducted was with a key character that made up the story. This writing approach of telling a story was totally new and refreshing for me. The idea of the guardian and his backround and why he is needed was explained with just enough details to keep my wanting more but saving the juicy details for [...]

    2. I'm not sure that I'd read the next book in the seriesd not because this first could have benefited from another round of proofreading and editing, but rather due to the incorporation of magic and fantasy and supernaturality into it, which I can only see going downhill, from my perspective, from here. I like my zombie apocalypses as scientific and rational as possible. I follow the inverse disbelief suspension principle: for whatever amount and to whatever degree I must suspend disbelief in orde [...]

    3. Highly entertaining!I was looking forward to new series, serious and gripping from beginning to end. Serious in some scenes yes, gripping; somewhat. But definitely entertaining. It is written in a series of interviews by a reporter that is doing research on a somewhat mythical figure; the hero of El Paso, Texas who rescued and saved hundreds of people, brought them together then led them out of a Zombie infested city. He is known as The General. After a Zombie outbreak, Jaxon finds himself trapp [...]

    4. Book oneOmg the way you ended it was amazing. I can't stop laughing. I'm not big on reporters I despise political drones. You did a good making miss reporter professional and yet in love with the General. Very good job

    5. couldnt get past 1st page. maybe it's a good story, maybe it's trashdunno. I just put the bullet into the stoned MC's brain to spare misery.

    6. The Guardian Interviews is an interesting premise for a series. Framed like World War Z, they are a series of interviews with the members of the Regulators. The Regulators are a group of monster hunters who were formed in the aftermath of the El Paso zombie outbreak. Their leader, Jaxon, is a Guardian. Guardians are a form of anti-monster created by forces unknown as a means of combating supernatural threats. Guardians can heal rapidly when surrounded by rain or plant-life and are immune to the [...]

    7. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. First off, it's a zombie book, but unlike one I've ever read. In some sense, that is alright with me, but I went into this just wanting a really predictable zombie book. There were lots of qualities about this book that I loved, however. The way this book was written was not something I liked. The interviews of each character did give some insight to what they thought and felt during the outbreak in El Paso, but some of it got repetitive. Especiall [...]

    8. Zombie books are abundant these days and it's becoming difficult to put a new spin on the genre. I give Michael Clary major kudos for making his story unique in its presentation. Instead of being just a narrative or a first-person account of a character's experiences surviving the zombie apocalypse, it is presented in an interview format. Each character "interviewed" presents his or her own perspective of-- and role in-- the zombie infestation. What also makes this story unique is that the zombi [...]

    9. The ending of this book had me laughing so hard i had tears in my eyes. What can i sayZombie books are something of a acquired tasteEther you like them or you don't. Whats always gotten me is how stupid people seem in them, I meanIt walks like a Duck talks like a duckMust be a duck right? Unless someone's been living under a rock for the last 20 years i am sure no one (at least in the US) would mistake a zombie for anything other then a zombie. Its also been my displeasure to notice the total la [...]

    10. As any other zombie fan, I had read countless zombie books and watched numerous zombie movies. Considering how mainstream zombies have become in recent years, it's hard to find anything (book or movie) that puts a new and interesting spin on the zombie apocalypse. Michael Clary's 'The Guardian' delivers that spin so many, myself included, have been looking for. The book is told through interviews of key characters, each adding on to the story where another left all. I have never read a book writ [...]

    11. I like zombie stories. I've seen countless zombie films, read more zombie stories than I care to admit here, and have had my fair share of time in zombie makeup. That being said, I'll be the first to admit that the genre tends to grow a little stale. There's only so many survivor scenarios you can use without getting repetitive. So when I picked this book up, I did so knowing that other reviewers have said it took a different approach to the genre.The approach Clary took to this book DELIVERED. [...]

    12. I'm a little torn here. I like the basic story here, but I really don't like the way it's written. I'm not a fan of the interview format. I like the main characters; Jax, Dudley, Kingsley, and Merrick (and later Javie). I would get really into the story that we were reading from each character's point of view (which I liked, seeing it through different eyes), and then there would be a random sentence or question from the "interviewer". It just interrupted what to me was a great story. It was poi [...]

    13. Very fun book to read. Mike does a great job in creating a realistic zombie invasion. Great use of characters and weapons. I loved the fact that the hero wasn't perfect, nor were any of the other characters. All had flaws which made the story believable.Also, the narrative style works beautifully for this book. The use of a reporter gives the novel an even handed feel. Thanks for a cool book and again, thanks for reminding me how unpreepared I am for a zombie invasion. I am looking forward to a [...]

    14. this book is retelling by a group of people, one in particular that they call "the General" of their escape from El Paso during Zombie attacks. El Paso is cordoned off and Live People are trying not only to escape EP but also escape unharmed. I really didn't think I would like this type of book but it kept me interested, is quick paced and unbelievebly entertaining.

    15. An amazing story, full five stars because if the great mix of intense moments and humor. One that even when you had to put down, you couldn't, you wanted to know what was going to happen next.

    16. I cant describe how much i enjoyed this book im now scared to read the next in case it isn't as good. A must read.
