About the Author
Courtney Allison Moulton is the author of Angelfire, Wings of the Wicked, Shadows in the Silence, and the novella A Dance with Darkness. When not writing, she enjoys photography and riding and showing horses. She currently resides in Michigan.
Forthright in its commentary on colonization and racism, the deeper themes woven throughout help Moulton's (the Angelfire trilogy) latest stand out from other historical fantasy adventures.--Booklist
A terrifically entertaining and compulsive page-turner of a fantasy action/adventure read from cover to cover, 'Wardens of Eternity' deftly showcases novelist Courtney Moulton's impressive flair for originality and her total mastery of the genre.--Midwest Book Review
In this action-packed fantasy set in 1939, an orphaned teenager discovers her heritage as part of a mysterious Egyptian tribe. Sworn to protect the world against evil, the Medjai are trying to resurrect their long-dead queen in order to prevent the outbreak of 'a second Great War.' For Ziva, who lost her family early on and grew up poor in New York City, being taken in by the Medjai is an opportunity to explore her cultural identity. As she wholeheartedly embraces the Medjai's mission to bring back the legendary Queen Nefertari, she trains in combat and hones her innate spell-casting abilities. The Medjai are opposed by certain gods, however, and even with the blessing of Anubis, lord of the dead, their task seems insurmountable. The worldbuilding occasionally feels unconvincing, and Ziva's transformation from penniless factory worker to globetrotting, magic-slinging Chosen One borders on implausible in its swiftness. But Moulton (Wings of the Wicked) offers a fierce, powerful heroine, an engaging premise, and plenty of magic-tinged cinematic moments. Readers may particularly enjoy Ziva's unbridled delight at finding people just like herself. Ages 13--up. Agent: Allison Remcheck, Stimola Literary Studio. (Jan.)--Publishers Weekly
'A simply riveting action/adventure fantasy novel by an author with a genuine flair for originality and an impressively effective narrative storytelling style, 'Wardens of Eternity' by Courtney Moulton will prove to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to community library Science Fiction and amp; Fantasy collections.' -- Midwest Book Review--Midwest Book Review
