Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Unique and Captivating Story"

    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!

    "Great Beginning!"

    The Rampart Guards: Chronicle One in the Adventures of Jason Lex was a fun enjoyable listen. I loved to hear about the all of the interesting strange characters that Jason and his strange Uncle encountered. Brian Callanan did a great job as narrator. This is Chronicle One so it will be interesting to see where the series heads after this.

    Story
    "Option - save the correct or the one you love"

    A very innovative story, that unravels just as all good stories should, answering the readers unasked questions, and giving a look at the scenario from various characters perspective. I appreciated the audio rendition of each character, making it more like an old time radio play.
    I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting suspense, drama and supernatural themes.

    Story
    "Admittedly Good, But Not For Me"

    Although I am far from the target audience of a young adult novel, I do occasionally read them. The great ones hold my attention and are as entertaining for me as something that was intended for my demographic. Unfortunately, “The Rampart Guards” is a YA novel that didn’t work for me. I admit it is actually a good book, it just didn’t grab me. There is a decent amount of interesting stuff in the book starting with cryptozoology and beings who help mediate a balance between cryptid species and humanity.

    I really don’t know why “The Rampart Guards” didn’t click with me, it just didn’t. I will admit, however, that the last two-thirds of the book really picked up. Overall, I think for its target audience, “The Rampart Guards” will be well received. Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

    Story
    "A unique coming of age story"
    What did you love best about The Rampart Guards?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rampart Guards?

    When Jason finally looked at things with an unbiased eye, as soon as that happens, things start to get done.


    Which character – as performed by Brian Callanan – was your favorite?

    Jason's Uncle. He had a very good voice for somebody who was very obsessed with their work, almost to the point of insanity.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The truth will "shock" you!


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or publisher via audiobookboom for an unbiased review.

    "Fantastic Story"

    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!
