Debut novelist Karen Healey taps Maori mythology for this fresh spin on the fantasy genre. Seventeen-year old Ellie Spencer has a crush on the cute and mysterious Mark. That's the normal part of her life. But something terrifying also haunts Ellie and her community. People are being killed and their eyes are being removed. Ellie soon learns two shocking truths. First, Mark is part patupaiarehe, the Maori equivalent of a fairy. Second, a war is brewing.

    " This just isn't my type of novel. Fans of paranormal and mythological fiction would probably like it better. "

    " This urban fantasy book almost read like a high fantasy for me since everything I know about New Zealand was learned from multiple viewings of Lord of the Rings. Despite the fact that I had to run to Wikipedia every five minutes while reading GUARDIAN OF THE DEAD, I really enjoyed it. The author did a great job of weaving together several different mythologies and creating multi-layered characters. "

    " This started out slow and actually kind of annoying, but then it turned into everything I have ever loved. "

    " I loved this, I really did but the fact that its a white girl who ends up saving the day, leaves a bitter aftertaste. "
