Guardians, Inc: The Cypher ~ Review

Guardians Inc: 
                    The Cypher
By Julian Rosado-Machain

Guardians Inc. is a new series of which The Cypher is the first book.
Thomas Byrne has recently moved in with his grandfather Morgan Byrne after his parents unexplained disappearance.  When Thomas and Morgan answer a classified ad they have no idea what they are getting themselves into. Guardians Inc. is a secret organization that had its beginnings 7,000 years ago.

Thomas has a unique ability to read any written language and Guardians Inc. needs Thomas and his skills. Thomas is the Cypher that they have been waiting for.  They need to find a hidden book that will reveal the next 500 years of history.  If they don't find it beings that we think of as magical and mythological will take control of the world we live in and know.

But Morgan has these same abilities.  This skill puts both Morgan and Thomas in danger making them targets of these mythological/magical forces.  Because whoever controls the Book of Concord will control the next 500 years.

It is race against time and magic as clues are discovered - clues that only a cypher can solve.

Though this book is being marketed to the YA audience, I think it would have appeal to tweens who have read the Percy Jackson books.  Magic, mythology, and human technology are in an endless struggle and if the balance should shift the world as we know it will end.  Join the adventure today...

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher/author in conjunction with this PUYB blog tour in exchange for my participation and my honest review.

About the Book:

GUARDIANS INC.: THE CYPHER is two stories in one. A glimpse into a
multinational company that is in reality the oldest of secret societies, one that
spans close to seven thousand years of existence, weaving in and out of history,
guiding and protecting humanity from creatures and forces that most of us
believe are only mythology and fairy tales.

The other is the story of Thomas Byrne, a young man thrust into secrets he
shouldn’t be aware of and dangers he shouldn’t face but, that he ultimately
will, for he is a Cypher. The only one who can steer humanity’s future.

The ultimate conspiracy theory is that Magic is real. Kept in check by
technology but, every five hundred years the balance can shift and, if it does,
technology will fail and those creatures we’ve driven into myth will come back

To protect the present, Guardians Incorporated needs to know the future, and
to unlock the future they need a Cypher.

This is the first book of the Guardians Inc Series.
