The MOST Inspirational Fiction I’ve Ever Read!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

(Note: Potential readers should be made aware that this is the third book in The Guardian Trilogy, and that it is necessary to read book 1 and 2 prior to reading this one.)

What will Elizabeth do? The man she loves is an angel! He is herguardian angel! She has been deceived. Her trust is broken. What will she do?

What will Darcy do? Nothing went as planned! The woman he loves may never forgive him. His heart is breaking! What will he do?

What will Gregory Wickham do? His plans to seduce and ruin Elizabeth backfired. His mission is incomplete and he must now develop a new strategy. What will he do?

As you can see, the third installment in Robin Helm’s uplifting and inspirational series opens with an abundance of unanswered questions and possibilities! In this novel, readers witness another chapter in the continuous battle between Good and evil as Darcy and Elizabeth try to parry Satan’s attacks and bring as many souls as they can to salvation. And with signs of the Antichrist and the End of days soon approaching, their time might be running out!

This series truly is magnificent! Witnessing Elizabeth’s and Darcy’s adoration of, reliance on, and willing service for our Lord is utterly inspiring. Their prayers, their praises, and their songs instill strong feelings of gratitude, faith, and peace in me. This series inspires me to have better faith, work on my relationship with God, and be a better Christian. Talk about powerful literature!

While I adore Robin Helm’s skillful writing and uplifting prose, there is one aspect to this series that I dohave a small quibble about, and that’s when Darcy and Elizabeth sometimes seem like paragons (mostly in Legacy). With their advanced abilities, outpouring of talents and blessings, and nearly blemish-free personalities, Darcy, Elizabeth, and their world sometimes feels a little removed from the reader. They aren’t “pictures of perfection,” but they perhaps are not as accessible as I would have liked.

Does this series parallel Pride and Prejudice?

I asked and answered this question in my review of Guardian with a “not so much.” Now having read all three installments in this series, my answer remains the same. Characters like Darcy, Elizabeth, Caroline, Wickham, and Charlotte share some similarities with their Regency counterparts, but other than that, there aren’t many parallels or connections to Pride and Prejudice. This is one of those times where the author could have used other character names, cut ties with Jane Austen, and still have a fantastic, stand alone story. But as for me, I’m so very glad she did use Jane Austen’s characters! This book would have been completely under my radar without the Jane Austen connection!

This glorious and heavenly trilogy is definitely a MUST for readers who enjoy tender romances, exhilarating action, inspiring testaments of faith, and angels! I most assuredly recommend!

With the ending left open a little, this reader is clinging to the hope that this isn’t the last we see of Xander/Darcy, Elizabeth, and the SoulFire team…perhaps there will be a spin-off trilogy about Michael???  *crosses fingers* 😉

    I agree that this trilogy is inspiring and certainly shows the relationship with God that each
    Christian should aspire to. Darcy is a created being, and it’s to say that he’s an angel so that explains why he’s perfectly attuned to God. And yet, worshiping God was a choice for him, too. After all, 1/3 of the angels left heaven with Satan. I think that his faithfulness and perfect faith in Legacy allowed Elizabeth to follow his example and reach higher, dig deeper for that same personal relationship with God.

    It’s not that I expect perfection of my Christian friends, but more that I can sense God’s presence in them in a stronger way when they’re spending time with Him. It just shows. I think that’s what we’re seeing in the people who are close to Darcy and Elizabeth. They love God, are committed to His ministry, and feasting on His Word continually. It shows.

    I’m pushing for a Volume IV at some point in the future. At least a novella.

    I did leave room for a sequel, and it goes without saying that Michael would have a major role in such a work.

    Thanks for the wonderful review!

    Thanks, Margaret. I love fantasy fiction and science fiction. In The Guardian Series, I was able to combine my loves into Christian fantasy fiction with an Austen tie-in.

    I will be interested in hearing the comments of all of you if you ever have a chance to read the series.

    Thanks for entering the giveaway, everyone!

    I have not ventured to read a Christian theme in Austenesque fiction but I’m willing to give it a try. It sounds fantastic too.
