Six months have passed since the Guardian saved Darden Valley. The city’s path to recovery is well underway as the citizens gratefully accept their new protector as one of their own, but for every crime the Guardian stops, two more take its place as the city’s criminals try to make a name for themselves against Darden Valley’s champion.
With new abilities and a computer system that acts and sounds like his departed sister, Jason Night is struggling to adapt to this new world without letting his emotions destroy the momentum he’s built for himself.
As he finally begins to put the pieces of his life back together, Samson arrives. Stronger than any other man and with unbreakable skin, Samson is a warped and twisted vision from biblical legend. Samson’s arrival heralds a new threat to Darden Valley. A supernatural threat that one man with a few clever gadgets is no match for.
Magic is real and the Guardian is powerless to stop it.
He’s still reading his science fiction novels, working the jobs only an ex-boxer can get, and working on a correspondence course in investigations that has me super excited for future installments.
In this book, he’s investigating a weird type of meteorite that might have abstract properties, making it dangerous for the owner.
My favorite parts of this book were the parts that define any Harry Stubbs adventure. Specifically, the investigation into the museum, the library research, and the very interesting characters, specifically, his employer in this book and the sultry American visitor.
Harry Stubbs is one of my favorite characters and always a great adventure. David fails to disappoint, bringing an intelligent and intrigue-driven story to a character that could so easily be written as a dumb stereotype. Instead, he’s a smart man, who I would describe as more wise than intelligent, in that he’s always seeking to learn and better himself.
Even if those efforts and his current line of work might drive him mad.
5 out of 5!

This is where I review “IT.”
IT was great. I loved IT. IT was also very scary. Nothing was scarier than IT. I couldn’t get enough of IT.
That being said, IT had strengths and weaknesses, as anything would. IT did more to explain what IT was than the original one, and that was great. I also loved how IT was scary without the overused convention of jump scares that we see a lot of.
As for weaknesses, I felt that some of the characters IT had weren’t as well developed as I would have liked. Specifically, we never meet the parents of Ben Hanscom, which might not seem that important, but everyone else gets a parental growth story of some kind. Either a freedom or a coming to terms in some way. Ben’s parents are completely absent, which is odd for someone who is one of the main characters of focus.
But I digress, as:
IT was magnificent, and I look forward to more of IT if IT becomes something that people want to make more of. Try not to hold my one negative against IT, as IT was 99% solid and only 1% of “Huh, why didn’t they cover that a little more?”
I can’t wait to rewatch IT, share IT, and tell people about IT.
What did you think of IT?
IT could be the new IT thing everyone wants to talk about…
That joke might have overdone IT…
