It’s not everyday Reece gets to head back to Earth and enjoy some technology! So here she is, stopping in to say, “Hi!” And meet everyone who is enjoying her story and are excited for the next books to come
Hey, there! For those of you who may not have read, Ancient Guardians: Legacy of the Key, allow me to introduce myself: My name is Reece Bryant. I never considered myself to be of any importance; actually, for lack of a better term, I’m “the girl next door.” I’m just like you. I wake up every morning and try my best to deal with whatever challenge I’m faced with.Then, one day, everything as I knew it changed.The events that are chronicled in this novel changed my outlook on life, on humanity, and changed my entire belief structure. There was no course in school that covered any of this, and to say I wasn’t prepared for it would be the understatement of the millennium. Here is a glimpse into my story.
Before I was transported and brought into the dimension of Pemdas (yes, you read that right, another dimension),I was faced with the biggest loss of my life; the death of my father. He was my only family, and the reality of being all alone in the world is something I wish upon nobody. I was so young, but I knew then that I was in a “make you or break you” situation. I decided to let it make me, and so I pursued my dream of becoming a pediatrician. Accomplishing that goal was the most important thing to me, in fact, nothing mattered except for that. Then from out of nowhere, I lost the only control I had, the control over my future.
Unbeknownst to me, I had been under the protection of two Guardians from Pemdas. I suppose I would have never known they existed, nor would I have been brought into Pemdas, had my life not been in imminent danger.It was imperative that they take me into their dimension for my own protection, and I had to make a split-second decision to trust two complete strangers. I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I know better than to accept candy from strangers. Not exactly the most desirable situation, when your only options are to get in a car with two men, or be attacked by two other men…I’ll take the car, thank you.
When I was introduced to the Emperor of Pemdas it was made clear to me that my being in Pemdas was not only for my safety, but the safety of Earth and all other dimensions in existence. From the moment I came into Pemdas, Levi – one of my guardians, and also the Emperor’s son – helped to me to become acclimated with my new surroundings, and he explained the details of what my new reality was. With his help, I opened my mind to all that Pemdas is…the magical land, their people, and their sole directive; to protect earth. I must say that my first evening in this enchanted land was nothing short of hypnotic. This dimension is mesmerizing. I would love to describe it to you, but I don’t have enough time to do it justice. Besides, I think the author does a pretty thorough job of it in the book.
As you can imagine, life in Pemdas is quite different from life on Earth. They are not distracted by the technology that we on Earth are so dependent upon.At first it was very difficult for me to adjust, but it didn’t take me long to realize that this way of life was superior in a “quality of life” kind of way. I knew that when I returned to Earth, I would get caught up in the hustle and bustle again, and I wouldn’t have time to enjoy my life. I realized that it’s the simple things that bring the most to our lives.
Being in Pemdas was life changing in every way possible. Not only was my entire world flipped upside down, but my emotions were all over the place. I knew this new world was not my home, but to be honest, I didn’t feel like I had much of a home on Earth, either. I grew to love Pemdas, to love the people there; and what scared me the most was the possibility that I was beginning to fall in love, also. Going back to Earth broken-hearted wasn’t something I was willing to do, and trying to come to grips with all of these things was with no small amount of effort.
In closing, I can say that the journey of my life has changed my heart and soul forever. I see things differently now.Never again will I take for granted what matters most in life, and I know that whatever path I am on, I will go forth with confidence; and I will always know that Pemdas is forever in my heart, whether or not I’m there. After you read this book, I hope you’ll feel the same.
