About the Author
Ann Henrietta Barlow was born in Dumfries, Scotland and moved to England at the age of 14 and currently lives in Malta and Dubai with her husband, Guy. After working for several years as an accountant and then as an independent consultant for computer accounting packages, Ann changed course and worked as a Marketing and Communications Executive based in the Finance Sector. Her love of reading and movies encouraged Ann to start writing at an early age but after starting a family and juggling that with a busy career, writing was put on the back burner. Ann conceived the character Sahara Driver while living full time in Dubai and the concept for The Guardian’s Chronicles took root a short time later. Ann has traveled extensively and become familiar with many different cultures. This epic story explores that diversity.

Having read the synopsis, A New Dawn was not what I had expected. I had imagined to encounter a paranormal romance directed at a teen/ YA audience. In actual fact A New Dawn covered very important topics more pertinent to an older YA and adult public. Touching on issues of loneliness, denial and abuse I was surprised; but liked how it brought me somewhat back to our current reality whilst maintaing an otherworldly edge to the story.
A New Dawn gave me a glimpse of what Ann H. Barlow felt our world would be like if evil successfully abducted good and locked it in a cocoon. A New Dawn had an almost dystopian feel to it at times, as our literature alter ego world slowly began to unravel itself as the balance tipped in favour of the enemy. This kept me going to see just how much chaos would be wreaked and at what cost would good have to bide its time, waiting for the opportune moment to strike back.
Ann H. Barlow has a very narrative style of writing, conveying her story through narration and telling, as opposed to via her characters. Having been recently reading several books where dialog dominates the storyline, I initially struggled a little but soon became used to it.
I enjoyed how Ann H. Barlow narrated from the point of view of several characters on either side of good and evil.
Despite being initially thrown by the storyline that was not what I expected, A New Dawn has a plot that has potential. A slow but steady build up and leaving all the action until right at the end, A New Dawn leaves the door wide open for an interesting sequel; that sounds like it may outshine the debut novel of this trilogy!
The narration switched between several characters. The main character Sahara really stood out for me. She went through so much in the first book. Reading about the domestic abuse she suffered really angered me! I'm glad he got what was coming!
Barak totally gave me the chills. I felt the evil pouring off him. Brrrr. Definitely one of the most evil villians I've read about.
I can't not mention the ending...WHAT?! I didn't see it coming & I have no idea what it means or what will happen next! Shock, shock, shock.
I'll be adding A World Without Faith (The Guardian's Chronicles #2) to my TBR list.
For this reason, along with the unpredictable path that the protagonist bravely walks, A New Dawn was one of those books that refused to be put down. Just one more chapter.
