An ancient evil threatens the realm of Sterrenvar. A race of people called the seers has appointed themselves Guardians of the Realm, guarding the safety of their world and all the people in it.
Maelona Sima is one of four seer champions tasked with protecting the four keystones from being breached by evil forces, thus leaving an immeasurable magical force free to be used against the realm’s inhabitants. Yet Maelona is more than a seer. She is unique in her world, and she is the best hope of survival for the people of Sterrenvar…the very people who once hunted down and killed many of the seers out of fear and mistrust.
Protecting the keystones is the first line of defense against the evil sorcerer who wishes to enslave the realm. Can Maelona, the guardian of the keystone at Eastgate, and her friends Blaez, a wolf shifter, and Gareth, a human prince, bring together their peoples to save Eastgate from destruction in this first book of the Seers series?

If you're a fan of fantasy fiction, I highly recommend The Guardians of Eastgate by Sherry Leclerc. It has a host of weird and wonderful creatures, beautiful mythical landscapes, and a twisting and exciting plot that is engrossing right up to the last page. Maelona is a champion of the Seer race of Sterrenvar, who watch over the keystones that protect their world. Maelona is the first line of defence when a dark sorcerer rises up to enslaves her home. She can't do this alone, but with prejudice existing between the races of Sterrenvar, can she enlist anyone to help, or will darkness enslave them all? I really enjoyed this great piece of fantasy fiction, it was beautifully constructed, with great dialogue and growth of relationships between characters. Apparently, this is the first in a 5 novel saga, called The Seer Series, and I can't wait for the next one, to see what is in store for the mythical world of Sterrenvar.
As a fantasy novel 'The Guardians of Eastgate by Sherry Leclerc has it all – mythical creatures, conflict, an impending sense of danger, romance, stunning landscapes, and so much suspense. We enter the world of Sterrenvar, which faces danger from a dark force that approaches Eastgate, which is protected by Maelona. As a member of the Seer race, she faces distrust from most other races, but she is still determined to protect them all. With a Prince and a shape-shifter by her side, can she save Sterrnvar? I loved Maelona as a protagonist, she is strong, compassionate and wilful...she definitely has TV series potential. Finally, call me a nerd, but I love it when a fantasy novel includes a beautifully drawn map at the beginning of the book. It really helps me immerse myself in a world that takes so much imagination to create. A marvellous read.
I am a huge fan of fantasy fiction, as there are no real rules – it can be as otherworldly and fantastical as the imagination can stretch. Sherry Leclerc has certainly stretched her imagination with 'The Guardians of Eastgate', an epic piece of fantasy writing that really drew me into a tumultuous world, where an impending darkness threatens to engulf all that live there. If the races that live within Sterrenvar cannot come together as one, then the chance of defeating the dark force in slim to none. Maelona is a champion of the Seer race, and she is determined to fight for the people of her world, despite the fact that many of them sought the destruction of her race. Her arduous journey begins, but how will it end? This book was beautifully written, with well-developed characters and a great flow. Furthermore, it is so refreshing to see a fantasy novel, take on some important contemporary issues in its narrative. 'The Guardians of Eastgate' has the underlying message of acceptance, and understanding of other cultures that are different to your own. No matter where we come from, or what we believe, we are all part of the same world.
The Guardians of Eastgate: Book One of the Seer Series by Sherry Leclerc is a great fantasy book with a wealth of mystical creatures. With a map in the beginning of the book that details the lands that these creatures live in, the author sets the tone well, and gives the reader this added bit of information in order to fully enjoy the story. The names of the characters are particularly beautiful, from Maelona to Kelwyn and add the the beautiful sense of the story. Of course there is an ancient evil that must be fought and conquered , that being a rather classic way of putting together a fantasy tale. Beyond that, there are undercurrents that suggest that one learn self acceptance, and perhaps this is the biggest overall moral lesson to the story. A bit of romance and mystery add balance to the tale, while the dialogue and character development is spot on. Highly recommend for an engaging book that allows the reader to escape for a while.
