Guardians by Heather Frost
A vision of Kate's death causes Patrick to intensify his duties as
Guardian. The Demon Lord is especially relentless now that Kate is the only Seer
to ever escape his grasp. When Patrick discovers that Kate is the key to
defeating their greatest enemy, he must choose between sacrificing the girl he
loves or letting the Demon Lord win. You won't be able to put this final
installment in the Seers trilogy down.
is a more than
satisfying ending to Heather Frost's Seers
trilogy. Packed with suspense, action, emotion, romance, and plenty of heart
rending moments, fans of the previous books will be thrilled by this exciting
ending to Kate and Patrick's story.
As in the
previous books, Seers and Demons, Heather takes the time to flesh
out all of the characters, both primary and secondary, making sure they aren’t
cardboard cut-out characters. Patrick is as hot and sexy as ever, Kate is even
more courageous and selfless, and their romance kept me turning the pages as
much as the suspense of knowing what was going to happen next. The alternating
POV’s is a great tool for giving the reader insight into both of their minds to
see why they make the decisions they
As in the
previous two books, Heather does a great job of setting up a conflict, and then
giving an ending that’s completely unexpected. She throws in twists and turns
that I didn’t see coming, including characters making choices and sacrifices in
ways that are interesting, intriguing, and sometimes heartbreaking.
Guardians is everything I hoped it would be,
brilliantly satisfying this fan. The only fault I can find with it is that the
book inevitably ended. I
can’t say enough good about this entire series. I highly recommend it to
everyone who loves a good read.
Heather was kind enough to do a little Q&A with me.
joining us today, Heather. We’re happy to have you here for the blog tour for
the final installment in your Seers

having me, Cindy! I’m a 23 year old book
fanatic and movie addict, living in Logan, Utah. I work some odd jobs that
actually pay the bills, and then I write because it’s my passion. I’ve got a
terrible weakness for an enchanting story, and I firmly believe that the key to
any successful story is the emotional connection between the reader and the
characters. I also spend a lot of time visiting my family. I’ve got six
brothers and three sisters, and we’re all really close even though the oldest is
25 and the youngest is 7. I also have the most adorable nephew, and two
sisters-in-law. Brownies beat cake, Vanilla beats chocolate—unless its Cailler
milk chocolate, from Switzerland, in which case I’ll gladly take both.
returned from a trip to Europe. Tell us a little about what that was like, and
did you get ideas for new stories?
It was an
incredible three weeks! I spent time exploring my dream destinations: Ireland,
England, Scotland; and I discovered new places I’d never really been passionate
about before: Wales, France, Switzerland (Cailler chocolate!), and Italy. The
tour I went on (with my cousin) was pretty fast paced, but allowed me to feel
unrushed at most places. (I could have spent longer at almost every castle we
visited, ruined or otherwise!) I also made many new friends from all over the
world: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, and the States, most
Definitely! It makes me a bit sad that I promised myself beforehand to finish
some of my other projects first, but since I love them too I got over the
feeling pretty quickly. But Europe is a great place to go if you want to ignite
all three books in the series in a single summer. That’s amazing. Tell us about
your inspiration for the stories.
It was a
crazy summer—I didn’t see much sun. But it was an exhilarating experience,
becoming so completely invested in my characters for weeks straight. The
inspiration story is a funny one, because I guess it shows how my brain works.
I was making a ham sandwich at the time, watching a movie, contemplating to
myself how I was actually going to be productive this summer, and that I wasn’t
off to a stellar start—and then all of these little tangents I’d logged away
for the past year suddenly collided, and the subsequent explosion in my mind
became the Seers Trilogy. The concept of Guardians, Demons, and Seers (in that
order) came to be, then the characters were born, and the plot followed very
soon after. I ate my sandwich, walked over to my computer, and rarely strayed
for the rest of the summer.
Did you have
an outline, or did you just start writing and let the stories go where they
I sat down
and started typing with a few plot twists in mind, some foggy idea that this
story would span three books, and a deep love for my characters. I never make a
detailed outline—they just end up ignored, so why bother? I will occasionally
make a list of the next 5-10 major plot developments, but that’s as structured
as I get.

steps in that direction right now. Fingers crossed! But even if writing doesn’t

often downright unrealistic. But anything you believe in becomes possible,

forward, no matter the obstacles.

Heather Frost: About the Author
I was born in Sandy, Utah, a few days before Halloween in 1989. I lived in Salt Lake City until I was about six, and then I moved North and settled into the place I still call home. I'm the oldest daughter and second oldest child in my family. I have six brothers, and three sisters. My parents chose to home-school all of us, and I'm surprised that they held onto their sanity after having us home so much. Still, I'm very grateful to them for all of the many sacrifices they made which enabled me to get the education that I did. My family members are my best friends, and I love them all so much. The three most important things in my life are as follows: God, my family, and writing. These things make me who I am, and I will always be grateful to my Heavenly Father for blessing me with so much.
I can't remember a time when I didn't enjoy reading, and I did a lot of it. I also dabbled in writing when I was young, though nothing serious until I entered the teenage years. I picked up one of my favorite hobbies when I started playing the flute at age eleven. I played my flute through High School, participating in both marching and concert bands, which led me to make some very good friends. I continue to play the flute, and was even a member of the Snow College Flute Choir.
I attended Snow College, and there got the best job ever as a writing tutor. I graduated in May 2011 with my Associate of Science, and am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science as an English Major. (Yes, a BS in English. Almost ironic, huh?) I love movies, music, and books—although I do think that the dumbest question on the planet is the whole “What's your favorite book/music/movie?” The best answer I've come up with is, “Whatever I'm reading, listening to, or watching at the time.” Generally, it's an accurate answer.
