The follow-up to the New York Times bestselling novel, THIEF OF LIES!

Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens.

Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where people are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.

And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend, Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex,” since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.

Maybe. If she survives.


5 stars: I found this series to be more for the young adult to early twenties, but this old lady ( 50 yr old) really enjoyed it.” –Annemarie, Goodreads Reviewer

4.5 stars: Guardian of Secrets is the 2nd book in Brenda Drake's imaginative Library Jumpers series, and retains all the originality, magic, thrills, action, romance, and of course library jumping, of its predecessor, Thief of Lies. [...] Overall, this is sure to appeal to fans of YA urban fantasy and paranormal romance, particularly ones who enjoy stories featuring books and libraries. It's left me eagerly anticipating the next book!–Kim, By Hook Or By Book

5 stars: It is an amazing read, with just enough sass, romance, angst, sadness and adventure. I highly recommend people pick up the first book in the series, Thief of Lies. So I'm going to do what the title says... I'm going to guard the secrets of how brilliant this book really is!” –Laura Jayne, The Bookish Emporium

5 stars: “Brenda Drake knows how to write a book jumpers story. This book will keep you intrigued from the beginning to the end and make you anxious for what is to come in the series! Although this story is targeted for the YA, I believe that anyone can read this series and appreciate and enjoy it.” –Melanie, Goodreads Reviewer

4 stars: This is a story that is filled with action, heartbreak, library jumping, a return of a major villain, and enough secrets to keep even the most stubborn reader entertained right to the very end.–Shelley, Gizmo’s Reviews

5 stars: “The intensity of book two is very well done and the character development is spot on. I also like how the author gave us a great description of each library as the Chiavi are tracked down. The series is intense and very well done and would love to see more in this series.–Jen Farnworth, J.R.’s Book Reviews

5 stars: This book was a great read!! I could not put it down.–Nicole, Goodreads Reviewer

4 stars: “Speaking of support, the girl power element was so wonderful to see in this book! Too often, we get girls that are catty and constantly fighting against each other or trying to bring other girls down. In this book, Gia is surrounded by strong, supportive females who work hard to build each other up instead of tear them down. Faith, Deidre, and Lei were always there for Gia no matter what she was going through.” –Megan, Under the Book Cover

5 stars: I adore this series. It has plenty of tension to keep the pages turning, while being light enough to be an escape from the stress and frustration of politics. I really love Gia, and especially the way this one turns the old romance love triangle into something more complex. Fabulous, fun, and flirty, it's only a matter of time before these books work their way into classic status! (At least in my library, they already are!)” –Jami Leigh, Goodreads Reviewer

Last year I read Thief of Lies and I enjoyed it enough to want to read the sequel. I really like the idea behind the story and Guardian of Secrets kept my interest alive. A fair warning though- there's a major case of love triangle.

Before starting this second book, I highly suggest revisiting the fi ...more

Guardian of Secrets by Brenda Drake.

YA fantasy. 2nd of the Library Jumpers series. Continuing saga cliff hanger. Should be read after the first to best understand the complex world building, the powers and relationships.

After the craziness that was the first book, I didn't think I'd enjoy this as much as I did. Surprisingly, I really liked this book and I'm surprised at what all happened. So many love interests changing among the craziness that is the Mystik world. I have no idea what will happen next, but I can't ...more

'Guardian of Secrets' is the exhilarating second installment in an absolutely wonderful young adult fantasy series that will leave readers begging for more.

This is the second book in the "Library Jumpers" series. The way this book ended I really do need to read book #3. There is more, "black" magic in this book.

I don't want to write my kind of a review, as this isn't released until 2017, and I have a tendancy to ramble on. Though I will say that it is an amazing read, with just enough sass, romance, angst, sadness and adventure. I highly recommend people pick up the first book in the se ...more

About the author

NY Times Best Selling Author

Brenda Drake

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
