The Guardian of the Ivalice by Laura Catherine




Title: The Guardians of Ivalice
Author: Laura Catherine 
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy Release Date: 
June 24, 2017
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.



On Ivalice, Prince Morgan has been living in the shadow of his twin brother and older sister. She will be queen one day and inherit the power of Spirit to protect their world and guard the other elements from harm. Morgan wants this power for himself and nothing will stop him from getting it, not even his family. With her dying breath, Queen Tamsin sends the elements to another world where Morgan cannot have them.

On Earth, Nix, Grace, Kendra and Phoebe are four ordinary teenage girls living normal lives where homework and boys are their biggest problems. That is until they absorb some strange glowing balls of light into their bodies and start controlling the elements.

Everything is about to change for these girls when the weight of an entire world is put on their shoulders.



The bus was old and probably in need of replacing with ripped seats and graffiti on everything including the roof. It also smelled like those tree air fresheners.

She made her way down the aisle to her favourite spot. It was about halfway down the bus, not so close to the front that you had to sit near a teacher but not so far back that you stayed away from the school bullies in the back row.

Nix slid into her favourite seat, the one graffittied in lyrics from her favourite band Chaos Destiny.

“Hello.”

Nix looked up to see the new girl staring down at her.

“Hi,” Nix replied. “You’re the new girl.”

“Phoebe Jenkins,” she said with an awkward smile.

Poor girl, Nix thought, doesn’t know anyone.

“Ah, I’m saving the seat next to me for my friend, but you should sit in front of us.”

Phoebe looked surprised at the offer and Nix wondered if other people had been less nice to her. 

Hopefully she hadn’t been subject to the antics of the school bully, Jasper.

“Go on, sit,” Nix encouraged with a smile.

“Thank you,” Phoebe replied and perched herself on the seat ahead of Nix.

“I shotgunned the window side,” Grace said as she pushed her way through the aisle of students still taking their seats.

Nix moved out of the way so Grace could claim her prize. Grace was always last to be called for things because her last name was West.

“What did I miss?” Grace said leaning on the back of Phoebe’s seat.

“Grace this is Phoebe,” Nix introduced.

“Ah, new girl,” Grace said with a cheesy grin. “Excellent. How are you liking Verndale?”

Phoebe sat up straight, pushing a loose strand of hair behind her ear. “It is a very beautiful town,” she replied. Her voice was soft like a gentle touch of fingers on guitar strings.

“Great. Just stick with us and you can’t go wrong.” Grace winked and leaned back in her seat.

Mr. Haynes appeared at the front of the bus, ushering people to take their seats so he could do a head count.

“Now today’s excursion—”

Mr. Haynes was cut short as a dark skinned girl with a shining curtain of black hair raced up the bus steps.

“Kendra,” Mr. Haynes said a little startled. “Where have you been? I called your name a while ago.”

“I’ve been objecting,” she said giving him a dazzling white smile.

“Objecting.” Mr Haynes nodded then did a double take. “Objecting to what?”

“I’m objecting to this excursion. I shouldn’t have to be forced into a swamp against my will.”

“I am sorry, Miss Tate, but there are other places out there besides the mall,” said Mr. Cole, the sports teacher who was accompanying Mr. Haynes on the trip.

The students giggled. Kendra pouted and looked like she was going to argue the point, but Mr. Haynes asked her to take a seat.



Laura Catherine was born in Melbourne, Australia and spent most of her childhood creating fantasy worlds and talking to her invisible pet cheetah who ran along powerlines.

Her imagination has carried her through childhood where her mother read stories about fantasy worlds at bedtime. Never one to face reality, Laura spent a lot of time turning boxes into ships and castles.

Laura self-published her first novel, Djinn (2013), a Paranormal Romance, and the second in the series, Blooders (2015). Laura is currently working on the next instalment in the Djinn series, Bloodjinn, as well as a few other novels including the first in a new YA series, The Guardians of Ivalice.
