Headstrong and determined, Hannah always knew that she would become the Guardian. She was the keeper and the protector of all supernatural. What she didn’t expect was that it would mean she would have to endure the agonising death of her mother first hand as their supernatural connection brings her to her knees, or that it would mean that she could never be with the man she loved.
Blond haired, blue eyed Gabriel was her handsome childhood friend, but would circumstances prevent her from ever being able to explore her true feelings for him?
Jesse, the dark alluring but incorrigible vampire would give anything to be with her, but as the guardian Hannah is forbidden to fall in love with the supernatural.
With her life in turmoil over her conflicting emotions about Gabriel and Jesse and her frustration at being unable to exact revenge for her mother’s horrific death, Hannah flees her life in an attempt to start over. But can we ever really escape from ourselves?
There is no escaping destiny no matter how hard she might try and Hannah must learn to reconcile her commitment to her family with her responsibility as the Guardian and her duty to her heart.
Lisa’s Thoughts - I couldn’t put it down which made it hard for me as a single mom of a six year old. I enjoyed immensely the story of Hannah who was a Venatorcustos which is a guardian of other species such as werewolves, vampires, witches, and nephilim.
She is the decision maker for these species if any were to get out of line or hurt innocent people it was up to her to take care of them. She became the guardian because her mother and her grandmother were also guardians. After a tragedy that occurs Hannah is forced to step up as the Guardian and for awhile she takes vengeance to a new light.
Until she meets up with friends from her past she decides to change her way of dealing with her pain and focus on the future. Through her journeys she is reunited with people from her past in unexpected ways and together they help her to look forward to a change in the way the species live amongst themselves.
I definitely am looking forward to book 2 Forever in the series then the 3rd book Revenge. I recommend this book to everyone there is no extreme violence or adult themes in this book
I would let my 11 year old niece read without any reservation. Thank you Gillian for sharing Hannah’s story with me.
