This novel was phenomenal! Hands down! I was having trouble finding a good novel to read, and then a friend recommended the series to me. I haven't been able to put it down since then! The adventure, and original plot structure was a refreshing breath in literature. Lately all you hear is about magic this, magic that yet, this novel puts the thought, 'Hey...maybe it is real!' in your head. Characters are easy to relate to, and quickly gain your trust and full attention. So, if you want a good book to pick up for a weekend, this is perfect for fantasy lovers!

I got the first one on Tuesday and by Thursday i read the complete trilogy. The Named: 4.5/5 Very good. It really pulls you in. The Prologue is semi-creepy but it doesn't get like that again. The Dark 4/5 Not my favorite. Its a little musy but it's still really good. Its 2/3 action 1/3 romance. The ending is very good. The Key 4.75/5 My favorite. I loved the point of view from 2 people who feel a little left out. The ending wasn't what I thought would happen. I was so surprised. The Trilogy: 4.25/5 Its a little dramatic but it brings you in.

The book is mainly about two people: Ethan and Isabel. However, the book starts out when Ethan witnesses the death of his little sister. She was killed by Marduke, an evil follower of Lathenia. Lathenia is the Goddess of evil and leader of the Order. She found a way to tamper with the past; it gave her a sense of power above her compatriots. This is why the Named was created, to protect the past so that things didn't go wrong in the future. Ethan must lead a secret life as a Guardian of the Named, along with his mentor, Arkarian. Everything is going fine for him until he receives an apprentice, Isabel. When Ethan was younger, he was best friends with Matt, Isabel's older brother. They ended this friendship on bad terms. He has to find a way to get to Isabel without making Matt suspicious. The job of members of the Guard is to protect the past by traveling through time, while they're sleeping, and fixing things that Lathenia has managed to change. I read the book and i liked it a lot. It was a fun book to read and it had a lot of interesting points and conflicts. I would recommend this book to anybody around 13 years old. It's an easy read for people who read a lot and people who don't. It became one of the boook that I didn't want to put down. It's a good thing there's more books because I can't wait to keep reading on. I'm sure you'd like it too. (TYLER)

Absolutely my favorite book of all time. If you love action, some fantasy, and a little romance, this is a book for you! Very well written and realistic character personalities. I would give it 6 stars

I first came across these books 6 years ago in my highschool library. I was immediately intrigued by the author's writing style and the storyline was definitely something that I hadn't read before. If you are a Harry Potter, Percy Jackson or even fantastical history fan, this series is for you. The elements of fantasy and magic combined with historic events makes this book and absolute page turner. By far my favorite author. I wish that she wrote more novels than these three and Old Magic.

This book was irrisistable, absolutely amazing as in "OMGosh-I-can-not-put-this-dang-book-down kinda way. At first I was confused about the whole gaurd thing with Ethan, but as Isabel learned, I too learned about what being a gaurd means. Ethan is a good boy, and a fantastic charecter. He teaches his apprentice, Isabel, the life of a gaurd. The life of a guard is highly mysterious and very interating. Marrianne Curley pulls you in with a stupendous plot full of childhood crushes, death, monsters,the paranormal, and of course true love.

Best book I've read in a long time. I gobbled it up in day and can't wait to read the 2nd book.

I read the three books in 3 days....did not want to stop reading and didn't want it to end. Must read! The author has an uncanny way to make you picture what is going on. I'd love to see them as movies but know there is no way they could picture it as good as it was in my mind!

Me and my boyfriend are reading this book and it is captivating. The vivid descriptions takes you inside the story and turning the page.

Well, all i can say is that once i opened the book, i could not possibly put my phone down! I read the books after i got off and the then when i got up. And when i got to work, at lunch, i read the book. That was all i could think of is reading this book. I am about to read the next book.

I absolutely loved this book! Not only did the author create a whole different world, she managed to tie it in with every day life. To future readers of this series: the first book isn't as good as the second and third! However, I give all the books an A+!

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It has drama, action, adventure, love, fantasy, and more. If these are some of the things you like this book will keep you hooked and guessing all the way from start to finish. I would definatly recommend this book to any age.

i thought it was pretty good book. it is a kind of book where you get hooked, then you kind of loose the hook, but then it will hook you again. but i thought that the whole idea of the story was good.

I thought that this book was enjoyable, but it was not one of those books that you can't put down. I recommend it but I would get it from a library instead of spening my money on it. I did like how the auther used the switching points of view.

Its a little predictable but since it is so well written the author keeps you excited on how the details unfold. This book had me at the prologue. And although it doesnt end with a cliff hanger I am still excited to go on and read the second book.
