This book - which I'd describe as the relentless energy of Percy Jackson meets the world of Pokemon, all mixed together in a big bowl of starlight - is honestly superb. She might be the hero that everyone's looking for, but to make matters worse, there is one person among the enemies who Mia doesn't expect. Mia ist eine sehr anstrengende Protagonistin, die ständig Angst hat, mit permanenten Selbstzweifeln kämpft und dann auch noch trotzig ist.

Das Buch hat mehr Liebe verdient, ich hatte noch nie davon gehört bevor ich es bei Netgalley gefunden habe. The dialogues and relationships between different characters, species and factions definitely are the strong suit of this book, while the plot sometimes felt a bit hammered into shape. It’s utterly refreshing to find a sci fi fantasy book where all the heroes are children of colour too, still unfortunately rare and very much needed. Mir hat "Wächterin des Lichts" wirklich supergut gefallen, endlich mal wieder ein Fantasybuch, bei dem ich mitgefiebert habe und einfach Spaß hatte! Es war nicht einfach sie zu mögen, denn so richtig gewachsen ist sie mit ihren Fähigkeiten und ihrer Aufgabe nicht.

Probably not) - if this was a book for an older audience, this might be read as criticism of the societal expectations of women just handling everything (work, household, unpaid care-work, etc. They find themselves in a race against time to reach Stella where her Grandparents live, and seek help before the rise of the Blood Moon when all hope may well be lost …Oh my goodness!

The lives of her parents and the fate of the city is in the hands of Mia and her friends, TJ and Jada.

Wie fast alle Städte im Königreich Lunis wurde auch ihre Heimat vom sagenumwobenen König der Finsternis in ewige Nacht gestürzt.

I also liked how the main character did not nesscary want to have the flashy job and delt with fear thougout this read.This book, (Mia and the Lightcasters) was a Christmas present for my youngest grand-daughter, and as her name is also Mia I thought it would be appropriate. Wächterin des Lichts" ist eine tolle Fantasygeschichte (nicht nur) für Kinder (ca ab 11) mit einer starken Heldin und einer interessanten Welt, in die ich total gerne eingetaucht bin. After graduating from Royal Holloway University with a Criminology and Sociology degree, Janelle moved back home to London and began writing middle grade fantasy.
