The Rampart Guards is an adventure and coming-of-age story about a young man, Jason Lex, coping with the loss of his mom and the discovery that the world is not exactly as it seems. Creatures of legend live among us. Grown-ups don't always make the best decisions. And sometimes choosing to trust is a tough, even dangerous decision.
After his mom disappears, Jason Lex and his family move to a small town where he has no friends, no fun, no life. Things get worse when he's chased by weird flying creatures that only he can see. Jason thinks he's losing it.
But when he discovers new information about his family, he's stunned to learn that creatures like Skyfish, Kappa, and the Mongolian Death Worm aren't just stories on the Internet - they're real, and they live unseen alongside the human race. Many of these creatures naturally emit energy capable of incinerating humans. An invisible shield keeps these creatures hidden and protects the human race from their threatening force. But someone - or something - is trying to destroy it.
Unsure who he can trust, Jason is drawn into the fight to save the people closest to him, and he finds help in surprising places. Confronted with loss, uncertainty, and a devastating betrayal, he must make a gut-wrenching decision: who lives and who dies.

I listen to 6.5-8 hours week days so if you would like me to read and review/rate send me a copy :)
This book has some twists you see and some you don't it will keep your imagination running.
I got a free copy to read and review and I would give it 5 stars any day.
This fantasy is filled with unexpected twists and turns and the excellent narration brings the characters to life. I purchased a hard copy and read it before the audio book was released and I gave that version five stars also. Listening versus reading brings a different and very interesting tone and flavor to the story....a fantastic experience!
I liked that the author came up with a way to explain why only certain people can see the legendary creatures that mankind has come up with.
When Jason finally looked at things with an unbiased eye, as soon as that happens, things start to get done.
Jason's Uncle. He had a very good voice for somebody who was very obsessed with their work, almost to the point of insanity.
The truth will "shock" you!
I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or publisher via audiobookboom for an unbiased review.
I loved this book. I have had it in my read pile for quite some time and my only regret is that I didn't get to it sooner. I guarantee I won't wait so long to read the next one!
