Publisher Comments:

Ethan lives a secret life as a Guardian of the Named. Under the guidance of Arkarian, his mentor, and with the help of Isabel, his unlikely but highly capable apprentice, Ethan has become a valued member of this other-worldly corps. As the only defense against the evil Order of Chaos, the Named travel through time to prevent the Order from altering history and thereby gaining power in the present and the future.

As the threat from the Order intensifies, secrets of the past are revealed and villains and heroes are exposed. This gripping fantasy is set in modern times, but is infused with intrigue from the past, super-natural characters and surprising plot twists. Curley has written a winner through to the end.

About the Author

Marianne Curley is a native of Australia. After marrying and having three children, Marianne and her young family moved to Coffs Harbour, a small coastal city. It was there, surrounded by beaches, rainforests and fresh clean air that Marianne began to write. Today she has three teenage children, whose conversations and experiences inspire her writing. They are also her fervent critics.

The quality of the writing isn't that good, but I got past that I discovered that this book has a fascinating plot. This book is about traveling through history to save the present, but also about the relationships between the people who do the saving. A quick, fun read, with two equally intriguing companion books (The Dark, The Key).

I loved this book. It was so good and i couldn't make myself stop reading until I finished all 3 books( The Named, The Dark, and The Key) This book is one of my favorites, a must read.
