Guardian of the Dead, by Karen Healey: 4/5

Guardian of the Dead. Karen Healey. 4 stars. Ellie Spencer is a girl in boarding school in New Zealand. When a string of creepy serial killings occurs in her area, Ellie is drawn not only into a murder mystery, but into a new world of magic, myths and legends. Best Thing: Fascinating Mythology. I knew nothing about Maori myths and legends before, and I was completely drawn in. Plus, interesting, developed characters! Worst Thing: Sure, a protagonist with low self-esteem is relatable, but frequent whining about body issues sure gets old fast.

Good for: Fantasy fans, mystery fans, horror fans, and young adult romance fans with too much depth to enjoy the Twilight books.
