Book details:
by Kristin Ping
(Guardian of Monsters #1)
Publication date: May 15th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Paranormal

Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.


Kristin resides in South Africa with her husband, two beautiful girls and two bulldogs that tries to eat her house.
She has been writing for the past eight years and her first debut novel, Hinder: A Bender’s novel will be published 2018 by Fire Quill Publishing.

When she isn’t writing, she is spending her time with her family, or trying to teach her two bulldogs to not eat her house. You can find more about Kristin at

REVIEW: I was super excited when I learnt that I had been selected to be a part of the Hinder tour. This 2018 release is one that you definitely need to keep an eye out for! Ethan is a bender which his Mum died trying to protect him. He uses the Earth element and has the skill to bend it and be in control of witches. The other main character Alex is trapped in her Aunt’s locket and she needs to find her bender before everything crashes around her. When Ethan and Alex’s worlds both collide, they have to stay alive before evil creeps up behind them and swallows them away in a puff of black smoke. I don’t read a lot of New-Adult but when I do, I thoroughly enjoy it. Hinder was visual, action-packed and also portrayed the joys and strains of relationships very well. As this is the first book in a series, I did like how the ending wasn’t a cliffhanger but at the same time, did leave some mystery behind which hopefully is solved in book 2? I would say what but that’s spoilers 😉
GIVEAWAY!: As part of the blog tour, there is a giveaway going on to win a $75 Amazon gift card and… it’s INTERNATIONAL entries! To be in with a chance to win, click on this link:  Entries close on January 7th 2018!
