Robert Dalton, a successful lawyer, is heartbroken by the loss of his wife. His grief causes a wide rift between him and his daughter Jessica. Without warning, Robert decides to move back to Colorado the same day his daughter’s boyfriend, Tony, proposes to her. The move is a double-edged sword; Jessica will discover shocking truths about two of the people she trusted most back in Texas, and a new journey of bliss and pain is beginning in the new state.

Authored by Jaguar, Dream: The Guardian's Trilogy is a captivating fantasy book that narrates a great conflict that began ages ago and now haunts the present generation, which had no part in it. The antagonism ought not to have been great, but one relentless character makes it so. The determination portrayed would have been admirable if it did not entail harm to the innocent. I anticipated a unique, major fight, but the characters made the tale absorbing, adding complexity to the apparent simplicity of the story.

Dream: The Guardian's Trilogy chronicles a struggle between fate and liberty. How far can one run from their destiny? Ian is a Skinwalker, and he can connect with Jessica in mysterious ways. Sacrificial love makes the story progress movingly. It is about the little, valuable gifts that remind people that they are treasured. I liked how two contradictory powers were at play in the story. The first one was an inherited supernatural capability possessed by a few while love, the second extraordinary power, could be demonstrated by many and could heal the soul and restore self-esteem.

The characters were distinct and exceptional. Jessica makes an observation that every reader would readily accept. It is an acceptance that a happy home is more than a big house filled with every necessity; it is about the people bonded by love and who are there for each other through every season in life. Apart from this, another phenomenon that I liked was the inability to explain the level of hatred some characters had. In as much as I tried, I could not find it.

I rate the book three out of four stars, for the narration was somewhat monotonous. Additionally, there were instances where sentences entailed mixed tenses. Although they did not detract from my overall enjoyment of the book, I felt it could have been more exciting and appealing to stick to a single tense where applicable. The book is most suitable for young adult readers of fantasy. The flourishing relationship between Jessica and Ian will appeal to fans of romance. The book comprises explicit scenes and a few cuss words, making it unsuitable for anyone below eighteen years and those who dislike them.

I don’t know how I would deal with losing my husband. I would hope that I wouldn’t let it affect my son. I’m glad that Jessica and Robert can find out what they need to know.

Sad that a mother's death which should have united these two drove them apart. Seems like a great book. Thanks for the review.

The paranormal has always fascinated me and I would like to know more about how being a skin walker helped Ian and Jessica connect. A great review. Kudos.

Robert had lost his wife and his grief caused a separation between him and his daughter, Jessica. The book involves love and family. I would love to read the book so as to know if Robert was able to get back with his daughter. Thanks for your review.

Robert's loss made him grief and drift from his daughter and this is quite sad. I'd love to know what's the shocking truth Jessica discovers about the two important people in her life
