The Lighwatch Chronicles: Book 1 The Guardians



“Those who have awakened the Light within are Stars—the silent warriors who turn their mind into a weapon against darkness. They take the hardest Path, so others can know peace.” – From the Prologue In a fantastically creative fusion of space opera, the Golden Age Elysium, and Earth-bound cyberpunk settings, four young warriors called the Quarta begin their journey in a Special Forces military academy. Yet after the terrifying surprise attack of the Shadow demons that destroyed their homeworld, the scattered Quarta are forced to flee to Earth and the seeming safety of Tokyo, Japan. Here, the remaining three comrades blend into society as an undercover boy band, while mounting a desperate search for their missing battle-brother. Meanwhile, a galactic war rages throughout the Universe, as the Shadow’s forces seek to rewrite history and take over the world by closing the Gate of Time Past. Only the Great Star Antares, the current Guardian of the Gate and her formidable soulmate Vega have the power to thwart the Shadow’s imminent storm. The problem is… Vega’s memory has been erased by the enemy. Will Antares find Vega before it’s too late, and what role will the Quarta play in the imminent battle that will weigh the fate of the Universe? You will be surprised to discover the answer. The Guardians is the epic first volume of the action-packed and spiritually rewarding Lightwatch Chronicles YA Space Saga series. Immerse yourself into the mesmerising fast-paced plot and step into the unforgettable world living the story and the adventures side by side with the characters. Author J.H. Tepley draws on her personal experience as a meditation, personal development and mental fitness mentor to create vibrant, fascinating and nuanced personalities, allowing the reader to look deeper into their own mind as they discover the unique and complex motivations of the heroes. This visionary book may shatter your view of reality – and offer a greater one! “The Lightwatch Chronicles book is reminiscent of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, in its linking fantasy and ethereal mystery with the human psyche, finding our path, and our constant struggle to grasp and understand our own emotions... but with its own unique flair. I loved every bit of it.” – Reader's Review
