Book Review: The Missing Shield

Title: The Missing Shield Part One (The Veil Keepers Quest)

Author: L.L. Thomsen




6 books in 1! If you are looking for your next fix of high epic fantasy then read on…

When the Guardians of the Nine Realms awaken, erased are the days when they could call themselves invincible immortals. The very artefact the Guardians need to protect the future against the return of the mad Gods lies shattered, and the twins destined to wield it are missing.

However, amidst the chaos, vengeful Mage-Guardian Malandar Denarlin does not intend to lose another war and takes it upon himself to venture into the human realm to locate and protect the twins. But time is short. Enemies old and new stalk the lands.

Meanwhile, when Princess Iambre’s childhood friend and ‘life-shield’, Solancei, vanishes during a visit to an allied stronghold, Iambre is forced to acknowledge that Solancei’s disappearance could cost them both everything.

Entangled in a conspiracy, unsure whom to trust, Iambre will risk it all to save her friend. But will she be able? Alone and injured, Solancei must pit her wit against a dangerous foe in a deadly game of truth or dare. It’s a fight for survival, yet Iambre and Solancei’s trials are just beginning. Guardian Malandar is now riding to draw them into his perilous quest to save the Nine Realms and he will not take ‘no’ for an answer.

Yet two questions remain…

Will Malandar reach the two friends in time? Or will the Gods’ unearthly monsters snare them first?



My Review

5/5 Stars

The Gods are battling, and Princess Iambre is on a quest to save her friend. Everyone is desperate to do just one thing: survive. The question is, who will make it out of the war alive and who will be just another causality?

Such an epic quest. With six novels and over 1,000 pages in this beauty, there’s plenty of something for everyone. Romance, Adventure, Mystery, Intrigue, Suspense, Paranormal. It’s all in this collection. Not to mention fantasy.

With multiple storylines and beautiful landscapes, it’s easy to become immersed in this wonderful tale. Out of the two storylines, my favorite revolved around Princess Iambre and her quest to save her friend. There were so many raw emotions between the two of them that made reading about them extra special.

If you’re looking for a good read that will entertain you for some time, look no further. This collection should be on every epic fantasy reader’s “must read” list.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
