Brin is a sixteen-year-old, fair-haired gypsy born to a dying mother. Over the years he becomes a slick pickpocket, but when danger rumbles about too close this time, he finds himself in trouble. There is a hooded stranger who warns of four masked men. And men desperately want the strange carved ring his dead father left him. When a pretty girl shows up, Brin thinks she’s part of the scheme to snatch the ring away. The guardian angel assigned to him from birth cannot help him now, because Brin has not yet trusted God. When Brin gives his life to God, He will intervene.
Sigmund Brovwer is a bestselling author whose works include The Weeping Chamber, The Last Disciple, and Out of the Shadows. This Christian fantasy book is totally enjoyable. There are plenty of twists and turns readers won’t see coming. I couldn’t put this story down even to go to bed. The message of God’s grace and mercy is throughout the book. Since the book does not explain how to become a Christian, it is geared more towards believers. I give this book two thumbs up! -- Jessica Loughner, Christian Book Previews.com
In this first book of The Guardian Angel series the story’s narrator, Pelagius the angel, introduces us to life in 1364 A.D. and to Brin, a teenage gypsy who is despised by his people because his mother died of the plague and his father was a follower of God.

This story will captivate readers ages 9–12 as they join Brin on his path to discovering what extreme faith is all about.
