Guardian - by Gillian Joy

In the 1600’s being 12 years of age wasn’t so young, in fact it was practically grown. People didn’t live as long as they do today and even minor illness could cause death. Superstitions also ran rampant and many things we take for entertainment like vampires, werewolves, and witches were the cause of real fears. But instead of being like every other girl her age Hannah knows that not only all of the superstitions positively real but she and her mother are from a long line of Guardians those who are here to keep all the crudelitas (supernatural) beings in line. But even with the power to destroy a crudelita with a single thought couldn’t help her from the jealousy and greed of normal humans.

Who knew just having a best friend would cause such problems but when your best friend’s father is truly cruel and vicious person it can lead to trouble. From one little kiss between Gabriel and Hannah, life would change drastically. Hannah would lose not only her mother but Gabriel as well…and the real question would always remain who was really behind it all because Gabriel’s father hadn’t been the only responsible.

Now 300 years and one whole lifetime later Hannah is finally on track to get the person who set up her mother and who had taken Gabriel from her for so long. Now with 3 Vamps, a witch, and a warlock on her side, Hannah is going to try to get revenge and try to keep everyone she loves safe.
This story is one of those that you pick up and you can’t put down, it’s just that great! I mean page 136 practically killed me and was one of the last things I expected. Not many people can catch me that off guard and it was one heck of a surprise. It’s like you don’t want to see the page numbers getting higher because it coming close to the end of the book and you don’t want the story to stop. I am dying for the sequel, I just have to know what happens next. This is one of those must reads…so go read it!
