Review for 'Guardian' by Gillian Joy...

GuardianGuardian by Gillian Joy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First thing’s first, I have to say that the cover of ‘Guardian’ is just stunning! It is just beautiful, inside and out. The cover was one of the first things capturing my attention to Gillian’s Facebook page, Guardian, and that then brought me to become caught and hooked to the plot! I’ve always thought that it is one of the most beautiful book covers I’ve laid eyes upon!

Hannah is a head-strong, determined and beautiful girl. But she is not just these things. She has a destiny, one that could eradicate all that she holds close to her. She is the Venatorcustos, the Guardian of all supernatural. She was born with these powers, the ability to recall all memories of Guardians preceding her. She also has the ability to heat the mind of any being around her, reducing them to a pile of ash!

Guardian was a fast-paced book, capturing the reader with ever turn of the page (Or flick of the screen!)! The characters all developed as the book progressed, all except Gabriel I believe. But this didn’t come as a surprise, because in my eyes, Gabriel is already perfect, he is one flawless being! I love all the characters deeply, and felt I could connect to them easily whenever a new face made an appearance. I do particularly love how Hannah has ‘guy troubles,’ and this is expertly done as many books nowadays have the element of boy-meets-girl, they fall in love, and this book was different, it was a quality that I did enjoy.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers by accident, so I think I’m going to stop there. But if there is one thing I can stress…If you have not read Guardian, by the amazingly talented Gillian, it is well worth a read! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent reading this book, taking in all of the magnificent details that Gillian had woven into this magical world! It is definitely without a doubt a Five out of Five star rating from me! Thank you so much, Gillian, for letting me review Guardian for you! I absolutely, thoroughly loved it! I cannot wait to see what Forever, book two, has in store for us!
