Scotland's Guardians by Katharina Gerlach is set against a Scottish background. Bryanna, who lives in Scotland, starts seeing strange creatures and monsters from Scottish folklore. She thinks she is hallucinating. Before she can find out about these creatures from her father, a woman kidnaps him. Bryanna starts following the woman and discovers she is in the middle of a dangerous journey. And if Bryanna escapes and gets out, then she is fated to kill her own father.

The story is laced with ingredients that will grab the reader's attention. Adventure, mystery, intrigue, suspense, fantasy; you name it, this book has it all. Adventure stories never lose their charm. This book introduces readers to Scottish folklore creatures and monsters, which is educational to a large extent. That way, the reader understands a little bit more about Scotland and its folklore.

Adventure stories like Scotland's Guardians reflect a writer's imaginative powers and creativity. I personally like reading them because you come across such weird and lovable fictitious characters with some surreal names which tickle your imagination. The goblins, elves, and other Scottish characters are very delightful.

Fantasy stories always motivate children to create their own characters. with gives them freedom to break free from barriers and come up with something unique and innovative. I find these stories very motivating to the reader.
