Blog Tour & Review: Wardens of Eternity by Courtney Moulton
This was a fun historical fiction novel based in the period prior to WW2 but in a slightly alternate reality. If Shadow Hunters and Rick Riordan’s style of blending together historical fiction and mythology if your thing – this is the book for you.
Thank you to Harper Collins books and TLC book tours for for sending me this copy to read and review as well as including me in the blog tour. I really enjoyed Wardens of Eternity!

Ziva Ellison has one memory of her parents, made the day they abandoned her on the streets of New York City when she was three years old. They left her with only a memory and a promise that she had a great and terrible destiny.
Fifteen years later, Ziva discovers that destiny includes powers that she doesn’t understand and can barely control. Her magic attracts vicious, otherworldly monsters, and eventually compatriots to help her fight them. Sayer and Nasira know the secrets Ziva doesn’t; that Ziva is descended from Egyptian royalty and in possession of ancient magic passed down from the time of the gods. They promise to teach Ziva to control her magic and to give her the family she’s always yearned for.
But trouble is brewing in the world around them; darkness is descending on Hitler’s Germany, threatening World War II. As the last heir of a revered Egyptian queen, Ziva is the only one with the power to prevent another costly global conflict. As Ziva navigates her newfound abilities and makes a connection with Anubis and other Egyptian gods, the Nazis are hunting for the ultimate weapon, and Ziva has caught their interest.
From Courtney Allison Moulton, author of the acclaimed Angelfire series, comes Wardens of Eternity, an action-packed page-turner that blends history, mythology, and magic, perfect for fans of Rick Riordan and Kiersten White.
When I read that this book had a female protagonist and the mythology was Egyptian (rather the commonly seen Greek or Roman), I knew I had to read it!
I got swept up in the style of writing and I enjoyed the group Ziva collects along the way as she learns about who she is and her heritage. I definitely shipped Sayer and Ziva so much! I loved that she had this inherent magic she needed to learn to use, a very chosen one-lost princess vibe to me. The book kept making me think the story was going to go one way and then gave me something totally different, which was nice as it made the book not predictable. If Courtney Moulton writes more in the world, whether more of Ziva’s journeys or someone else’s journey, I’ll definitely be reading it.
