BLOG TOUR: The Guardians, Inc.: The Cypher by Julian Rosado-Machain


ABOUT THE BOOK
 

GUARDIANS INC.: THE CYPHER is two stories in one. A glimpse into a multinational company that is in reality the oldest of secret societies, one that spans close to seven thousand years of existence, weaving in and out of history, guiding and protecting humanity from creatures and forces that most of us believe are only mythology and fairy tales.

The other is the story of Thomas Byrne, a young man thrust into secrets he shouldn’t be aware of and dangers he shouldn’t face but, that he ultimately will, for he is a Cypher. The only one who can steer humanity’s future.

The ultimate conspiracy theory is that Magic is real. Kept in check by technology but, every five hundred years the balance can shift and, if it does, technology will fail and those creatures we’ve driven into myth will come back with a vengeance.

To protect the present, Guardians Incorporated needs to know the future.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Guardians Inc.
The Guardians Inc. storyline is not a trilogy, but a series of books. Five to be precise, but they might turn into six depending on how long Book Five turns out to be.
Before writing Book 1: The Cypher, I had already developed all story and character arcs for the whole series, and what I wanted to explore on each book. This process took about two years.
The Ending of the Series is already written and it is quite final.
Each book seeds the next books, so things, enemies and storylines will appear and reappear all over in the complete series.
There are allusions and "Tips o' the hat" to many books, writers and movies I admire seeded throughout the Books. From The Jungle Book to The Last Starfighte and  Mythbusters. Most of them are done quite openly, even referenced by name, but some are very cryptic. Me having fun with the story.
Guardians Inc. relies heavily on historic figures and events. I research thoroughly before referencing a place or an event.
The same applies to technology, I do try to do as much research as I can before writing about technology. (although, like Thomas, theoretical physics are beyond my full understanding!)
One of the evil characters in Cypher: THE MAN IN THE TRENCH COAT, got its own interactive book app for the i-pad as an illustrated children's book and it’s doing quite well!      
ALL story lines will get closure. I promise. As time progresses in the story and Thomas gets older, dangers, moral dilemmas, and romantic situations will get rougher, tougher and more... romantic!
NOTE: I will have a review of this book later, but as of this date I have not yet received the book, so no review today.   

Check out the rest of the tour here.
