A thrilling paranormal urban fantasy set in New Orleans, with a sensual romance and pages of heart-pounding action.

 

In the war between Heaven and Hell, a special race of humans with supernatural abilities will represent the balance between darkness and light. They are known as The Guardians.

 

Jack Bennett comes from a long line of Guardians, a fact that has been drummed into him since he was a kid. When he and a select group of elite Guardians are called upon by Michael the Archangel to complete a special assignment, Jack gladly accepts. Seven years later, a failing mission and personal losses have left him jaded, bitter and without room for love or relationships in his life.

 

The past that Addison Monroe is so desperately trying to escape is one she can’t outrun. The darkness inside that causes her to act unpredictably has gone unexplained until now. A woman claiming to be an angel appears with a revelation that will shake Addison to her core. Her dark nature is explained as Addison discovers that she is one of the Nephilim—a child born of a human mother and demon father.

 

Despite the dark nature she was born with, Addison has been chosen by Heaven for a special purpose. Ten scrolls spelled to open up portals between Hell and Earth … ten demons who are using them to come and go from Earth at will, a violation of the terms set by heaven in the battle for souls … one demon known as the Great Duke of Hell who will stop at nothing to defeat her. Fighting alongside two Guardians, Addison must uncover the legendary Seal of Solomon—a ring that is said to possess the power to destroy demons, and wield it against the enemies of Heaven.

 

As his task to protect her develops into something more, Jack will find separating his job from his personal life nearly impossible. Ignoring the dangers of becoming too attached, Jack will find that a woman whose very nature should repulse him, might just be his saving grace.

 

Jack and Micha are Sam and Dean Winchester on steroids!

This is my first read of a Elise Marion novel and I gotta say I am loving her. Paranormal is one of my favorite genres and now paranormal romance is too. I love a good storyline with the romance kinda happening in the background. It contributes to the story but is not the entire story.

Aside from the supernatural and the hot love story, at the heart of this story is Addison. Despite growing up in a rundown trailer with a drug induces mother who has been flowing in and out like is a Seven Eleven, Addison is pretty well adjust and striving to make a better life for herself. She is trying to overcome her past and the darkness that consumes her. In the end Addison must make sacrifices and choices that will rock her world. Meeting and following Jack and Micha is one of those choices. Jack and Micha remind me of Sam and Dean Winchester (Supernatural TV Show) if they were on steroids. Total badass Guardians and very yummy.

The Guardians is fast paced read. The action begins on page one and does not let up. And it leaves you with the mother of all cliffhangers

Amazing start to a new series by Elise

Having just finished reading 'The Guardians'... I'm at a lose to what I should write....
What do you write when a book keeps you glued to the pages??
When you can't put said book down??
When you read it all in 1 sitting??

I loved what I just read, set in the world, now... but where there is a never ending war between good & evil... angels & demons, happening on Earth, in front of the un-seeing humans. Loads of action, fighting, tension... you learn the history of the war.

'The Guardians' is book 1 in Elise's new series, aptly named "The Guardians", I look forward to reading book 2. Please write book 2 soon Elise, you have a MASSIVE fan here.
