When thirteen-year-old Ronan Truelove’s seemingly ordinary mom snatches him from school, then sets off on a high speed car chase, Ronan is shocked. His quiet, nerdy dad has been kidnapped? And the kidnappers are after him, too? His mom, he quickly learns, is anything but ordinary. In fact, she’s a member of an ancient order of knights, the Blood Guard, a sword-wielding secret society sworn to protect the Pure—thirty-six noble souls whose safety is crucial if the world as we know it is to survive. Now all those after-school activities—gymnastics, judo, survival training—she made him take, make sense. For suddenly Ronan is swept up in a sometimes funny, sometimes scary, but always thrilling adventure—dashing from one danger to the next, using his wits to escape the Bend Sinister, a posse of evil doers with strange powers. Falling in with two unlikely companions, Greta, a scrappy, strong-willed girl he’s never much liked and Jack, a devil-may-care teenage pickpocket, Ronan is left with only his wits and his mom’s last words of advice: Trust no one. That’s a lot for an ordinary kid to deal with. But then again, maybe Ronan’s not ordinary at all.

2.5 The Blood Guard
While this was a pretty fun MG, it also was very hard for me to suspend my disbelief in the plot. So apparently there are 36 "Pure" souls who keep God from raining down fiery annihilation on the world. These Pure are not saints, or "goody-goodies", but just inherently good people whose very presen...

3.5 The Blood Guard by Carter Roy
This was a really cute Middle Grade urban fantasy with lots of action. Ronan is an unusual kid - mostly his mother's fault for enrolling him in all sorts of crazy extra-curricular activities. But when he ends up on the run from guys that really don't seem all that nice, he begins to realize that she...

4.0 The Blood Guard
This sated my desire for further Percy Jackson books with a slightly less interesting backdrop (you can't really beat Greek mythology) in exchange for a cleverer and more introspective hero. Ronan is easy to root for. He's a bit of an outsider, and a lot of that is because of his exceedingly stran...

5.0 Middle Grade review - Blood Guard by Carter Roy - Special Guest Reviewer
As soon as I opened this package and saw this fantastic cover, I knew that Blood Guard was a book for my 12 year old son, Damian. And I was right, he LOVED it! So much so that he’s already loaned it to his friend to read and he's recommended it to his middle school librarian as something he’d like t...
