Synopsis: I was born to slay Crossworld demons.
Big black flappy ones, little green squirmy ones. Unfortunately, the only thing getting slain these days is my social life. With my high school under attack, combat classes intensifying, and Academy instructors dropping right and left, I can barely get my homework done, let alone score a bondmate before prom.
Then he shows up.
Jackson Smith-Hailey. Unspeakably hot, hopelessly unattainable, and dangerous in all the right ways. Sure, he’s my trainer. And okay, maybe he hates me. Doesn’t mean I’ll ignore the wicked Guardian chemistry between us. It’s crazy! Every time I’m with him, my powers explode. Awesome, right?
Now my teachers think I’m the murderous Graymason destined to bring down our whole race of angelbloods. Everyone in New Orleans is hunting me. The people I trusted want me dead. Jack and I have five days to solve the murders, prevent a vampire uprising, and thwart the pesky prophecy foretelling his death by my hand. Shouldn’t be too difficult.
Getting it done without falling in love. . . that might take a miracle.
Cecily Cornelius-White, Psy.D. makes a habit of avoiding boredom whenever possible. She has enjoyed
careers as a hand model, GAP salesgirl, movie projectionist, psychotherapist, yoga instructor, university professor, artist, dance choreographer, eating disorders specialist, psych diagnostician, book reviewer and copy editor. None of which are as much fun as writing novels.
She currently lives in Springfield, MO with two FABULOUS kids, and a schizophrenic yet well-mannered cat. She can swear in Klingon, take down an alien aggressor using only her mind (or a pair of chopsticks), and kill giant spiders without getting schmutz on her shirt.
When not singing to herself, she spends time creating new worlds and thinking up ways to make this one better…
I just loved our main character, Ami. Her name is gorgeous and I think it fits her perfectly. She’s so defiant and hilarious. At the same time she’s strong and unafraid of doing what’s right. Watching her go for things, fighting for what she believes in totally sold me on her. Then there’s Jackson Smith-Hailey. Oh, you sexy thing, you. Jack is everything you want in a lead male. He’s got blonde hair, adorable banter, he’s protective, strong… there’s nothing to hate about him. At least, I couldn’t find anything. Jack has always known his duty and he’s content to stick with it, but when Ami gets thrown into the mix I just love how he slowly changes. Yet, at the same time he’d sacrifice everything for her. Gosh, I loved him. A+ on the love interest times ten!
This book definitely sucked me in from the beginning. I loved the idea is guardians and demons, plus throwing in vampires and werewolves, made it a fun and unique story line. There’s awesome side characters as well, which is always a plus for me. One in particular was Luc. Even though he’s the cocky, rich vampire, he definitely has a heart and a playful manner and I cannot wait to see more of him in the future! Overall, absolutely loved this book and will be impatiently waiting for the next one in the series!!
