REVIEW: Guardian by Gillian Joy
Headstrong and determined, Hannah always knew that she would become the Guardian. She was the keeper and the protector of all supernatural beings. What she didn't expect was that it would mean she would have to endure the agonising death of her mother first hand as their supernatural connection brings her to her knees, or that it would mean that she could never be with the man she loved.
Blond haired, blue eyed Gabriel was her handsome childhood friend, but would circumstances prevent her from ever being able to explore her true feelings for him?
Jesse, the dark alluring but incorrigible vampire would give anything to be with her, but as the guardian Hannah is forbidden to fall in love with the supernatural.
With her life in turmoil over her conflicting emotions about Gabriel and Jesse and her frustration at being unable to exact revenge for her mother’s horrific death, Hannah flees her life in an attempt to start over. But can we ever really escape from ourselves?
There is no escaping destiny no matter how hard she might try and Hannah must learn to reconcile her commitment to her family with her responsibility as the Guardian and her duty to her heart.
When I first set eyes on the cover of Guardian I was blown away by how stunningly gorgeous it is. And let me tell you that the story does not disappoint either!!
Guardian contains all the supernatural you could possibly want and more. There are vampires, witches, werewolves and more!! Guardian has them all.... And at the heart of it all is Hannah who is incredibly strong willed and independent. She is sassy and not someone that you want to mess with!! ......And Gabriel who has loved her since he was just a boy. His is a love that even time and distance could not waiver.....
Guardian was an incredibly easy read because of the depth of the characters and Gillian Joy's ability to draw you into her story. Guardian is a must read and I cannot wait to see where book 2 will take us!
