To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles Book 2) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles, #2)To be a Fae Guardian by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To Be a Fae Guardian is the second book in the Realm Chronicles. It’s an exciting, beautiful fantasy story focusing on a young woman struggling to prove herself as a leader in a world of complicated politics and supernatural threats. If you haven’t already, I would definitely recommend reading the first book, To Be a Fae Queen, to begin with!
I loved the first book in this series, so was eager to read this when it came out and find out what happened next to Titania and her friends and family! In this sequel, Titania has to deal with the backlash of the decisions she made in the previous book. This is really effective – too often it seems like heroes face no consequences for the rules they’ve broken to achieve their goals. And, of course, there are new threats in addition to Titania’s social responsibilities as queen.
I particularly liked Titania’s cousins. They bring light and joy to the darker moments in the book, as well as helping Titania learn more about herself. They also highlight how much Titania has had to grow up, quickly, as they are not much younger than her but free from the authority and responsibility she has to shoulder.
This book gets a solid five stars from me! (Or six, if I’m allowed to give six? Worth a try!). I would recommend it to teen and young adult fantasy fans, as well as adult readers who enjoy fantasy that’s not too grim or heavy. It’s aimed at readers in KS4, but strong readers in KS3 will enjoy it as well.
