Welcome to the world of the Guardians, a place very much like the historical world we know: In various stories, a great armada sails from Spain to conquer England, a young Stuart Pretender leads a Scottish rebellion against the Hanoverian kings, and the Industrial Revolution threatens to change society forever.
But—there’s magic behind the scenes. The Guardians are human with magical powers that tend to run in families. Most of them are based in the Celtic fringes of Great Britain, where the ancient magic is the strongest, but they might also spend the Season in London and travel to foreign lands when they meet others who are magically gifted.
Sworn to use their powers for the betterment of mankind, they influence the history we know—and being human, they make their share of mistakes. They also understand passion and the terrible conflicts that can arise between love and duty.
And with magic at their command, Guardian women can be the equals of their men!
