Guardian Unraveled, by Georgia Lyn Hunter

Guardian Unraveled (Fallen Guardians #3)


From the scorching pits of Tartarus, a warrior emerges with a deadly need for more than vengeance…

A loner, Dagan, lives with an inexorable thirst he’s kept hidden for eons, even from his fellow Guardians. Until he meets a beautiful, maddening human who awakens in him a hunger that shakes him to his very core, and threatens to shatter his tightly erected shields, exposing his dangerous secret. And wanting her is a path leading to destruction.

Driven to find her missing mother in a shadowy world, Shae Ion refuses to be sidetracked. When she becomes the target for a sinister force, a sinfully sexy and utterly impossible immortal abducts her, and he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe.
Stuck in an isolated place with the reclusive Guardian who allows no one close, Shae struggles to control her new burgeoning powers, and is unprepared for the tangled emotions he stirs in her. But passion has a way of obliterating barriers.

However, the road to happiness is strewn with treachery. Nothing is sacred or safe. When a ruthless old enemy resurfaces, and comes after Shae, they are drawn into a terrifying, supernatural battle. And not even Dagan, a lethal immortal warrior who’d lay down his life for her, can save her now…  


My review:

** I volunteered to read an advance reviewer copy of this book. **

I love this series.  I do not believe I can begin to quantify exactly how much I love it.  Absolutely more than chocolate.  And caramel.  (All that buttery, creamy goodness.)  Perhaps even more than Swedish Fish.  (Okay, let’s not go completely crazy.)  Which is certainly high praise.  I geek out on most things mythology related and this twist on Gods and immortality with the addition of archangels and demons kept me enthralled with every page I read.  The larger than life and panty-evaporating Guardians certainly increase blood flow and elevate the body temperature.  I would give most anything to step into this realm full-time.  And the only reason this story did not rate a full “Knappogue Castle” on my scale was due to the fact that a few surprises and reveals were figured out by me.  A fabulous read nevertheless.

My rating:  Midleton

Breaking Fate, by Georgia Lyn Hunter

Breaking Fate (Fallen Guardians, #2)


An immortal without a soul is bad enough. But when his only tether to remaining honorable is his addiction to bone-crushing pain, it makes Blaéz a dangerously loose cannon.

A Guardian sworn to protect mortals from supernatural evil, Blaéz straddles the edge of darkness as his needs grow. When a good deed brings him to the doorstep of a female unlike any other, one whose touch ignites emotions long lost in the hellish pits of Tartarus, he’s determined not to lose her. She belongs to him. But she’s human. Forbidden. And bringing her into his life may just destroy them both.

Darci Callahan has given up on love.
When a lethally handsome stranger suddenly appears late one night, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the captivating man with the pale, empty eyes—a man who awakens in her a desire she never believed possible. Except Blaéz brings more than unexpected passion to her life, he brings danger.

In this treacherous new world of gods and demons, Darci soon discovers a heart-shattering truth and the twisted games the gods play. Caught in the crosshairs, she’s forced to accept that, sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you have to love them enough to let them go…


My review:

** I volunteered to read an advance reviewer copy of this book. **

Blaéz had my heart in “Absolute Surrender” Book 1 of this Fallen Guardians series and his hold on me tightened as I read his tale.  (Apparently as I age I find I am becoming more enraptured with tortured souls.  Who knew?  LOL)  His angst and issues are fully highlighted and detailed and I loved every moment of the backstory.  The mythology aspect of gods that is woven throughout the read and the inclusion of arch-angels is just heavenly.  What a fascinating follow-up!

A Taste of Revolution, by Tiffany Michelle Brown

Ravenous (Triskaidekaphilia, #2)


“A Taste of Revolution” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

This was an exciting and liberating look at the world from the eyes of the vampires whose cravings for human blood are treasonous in nature and are forced to find alternate forms with which to feed themselves.  Witty and scandalous, this certainly appeased my “bloodlust”.

A hauntingly endearing romance between an artistic vampire and his muse.  The creativity involved in composing that spectacular piece of art is colorfully portrayed in this read.  Beauty emanates from the inside, indeed.

Sweeter Than Blood, by Dale Cameron Lowry

Ravenous (Triskaidekaphilia, #2)


“Sweeter Than Blood” is included in the Ravenous, Triskaidekaphila – Book Two compilation.


My review:

“Sweet” is exactly the word I would use to describe my overall feelings regarding this tale.  The main character was changed without consent in a moment of sexual weakness and is dealing with the aftermath the best he can.  The flashbacks as to how that action took place are brilliantly placed throughout the story and highlight the inner turmoil as the character tries to come to terms with that realization.  The vulnerability and self-acceptance is beautifully written and I would enjoy reading more about this vampire and his sire.
