Cynna is a spectator of an interesting fight. Nick is fighting for his survival without losing who he is. Almost right away this author shows how ugly the beast of sexual and mental abuse is. I found that even though this is part of a series, you could read this book by itself. But if you want to know more about the Guardians, you’ll want to stay true to the series.
If you’re someone that likes Mythology (one of my favorites in English class) you’ll see that it’s combined with a group trying to protect us humans and half-breeds. You might even recognize some of your favorite gods and those you loved to hate. If you like some action in your read then this book will be perfect for you. On top of that, Elisabeth adds a mystery into the mix that will heighten your reading experience – who doesn’t love a good mystery.
An interesting character to watch out for is Ari – you’ll understand when you meet him. But he also makes me curious – what’s his story. Nick gives the readers hints but I still found myself wanting to know more. Both of the main characters are strong willed but for different reasons but that doesn’t stop them from realizing how much they need each other. Once you get involved in the story, you will find it hard to put down – there’s just no good stopping point because something else will come up that will grab your attention.
