During all of this explaining, Ronan and his mom are being chased by the Bend Sinister. The Bend Sinister is the Blood Guards worst enemy. They will stop at nothing to kill any of the pures. Ronan's mom has to leave him at a train station to meet up with another guard member as she goes off to find and return Ronan's dad. Ronan will make new friends, create enemies, learn more about his mom and these secret societies, all while being chased down by the Bend Sinister.
I would love to see this book made into a movie. The ending caught me quite by surprise. The character development and imagery were both superb. I also thought that the plot development was at just the right pace to keep your attention. This book was a very quick read. The Blood Guard is just right for various ages, and fits under several different genre's. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book via Net Galley courtesy of Two Lions in exchange for an honest review.
