I took a break from this series after the fourth book, mostly because I didn’t want this story to end. I finally could stand it no longer and placed it on hold at my library. The first four books were so memorable that I didn’t even need to reread them (though I will soon!), and I dove right in with great anticipation. The book did not let me down.

Over a hundred years have passed since the last battle with Pitch, and things have changed. The last Nightlight has become a dashing lad called Jack Frost. Katherine, too, now known as Mother Goose, is changed from the Good Night Kiss that saved her life. Pitch is imprisoned, and things have been relatively good for years. But their old enemy has been planning, and he’s finally ready.

As we delve into the memories of Nightlight/Jack Frost, we discover what happened in the infamous Battle of Bright Night and the results of the strange changes that began in both of the children after that magic kiss. All of the stories culminate into one final battle with Pitch, and this fight will determine the future of not only Jack Frost, but also the rest of the Guardians and the whole Earth.

If you enjoy fairytales, this series is for you. This final book wraps everything up beautifully. The illustrations are wonderful, and the characters come to life in a way that imprints their stories on your mind. The Guardians is a fantastic, magical, exciting adventure that will stir the hearts and minds of the young and the young-at-heart alike. Recommended for everybody!

Wonderful end to a fantastic book series! I love the way Joyce incorporated the movie version of Jack into Nightlight, and the illustrations were gorgeous.
