Seth’s time is running out. If he can’t hand over the entrance to Olympus
More lists with this book...
Well, color me surprised-I actually liked this book. I only picked it up out of nostalgia- I used to be a real SK fan. Yeah, not so much anymore. This series has been going downhill for a while, IMHO. Too many things/disasters/pantheons. The books have the feeling of not being connected at all, loose ends everywhere, etc. Don't even get me started on Chronicles of Nick. Paradoxes, BS that seriously bugs me and I wish to hell that series never started. This book was marginally better and...more
Lydia, Were-Hunter and Dream-Hunter, has gone to Azmodea to retrieve Solin from Noir's evil cluthes. Wh...more
I kinda miss Kenyon's previous book covers. You know, the one with the pictures of the heroes and heroines in front? I think it's more sinister looking than the current covers.
Okay, now back with the story.
I like it. No... I don't just like it, I LOVE IT! I mean... finally, we're back to the realm I know. Though it's not entirely Greek, at least it has been discussed during the first books. The Melachai, Jaden, and Solin. Oh, Solin! That one. When I first read him on Arik...more
Sherrilyn Kenyon nos lleva un poco mas allá en el mundo de los Dream-Hunters y demonios, pero también nos adentra en el Panteón Griego. Esta es la historia de Seth y Lidia, a pesar de que hay apariciones de personajes de libros anteriores.
Siempre he disfrutado de la serie Dream-Hunter. Pero este en particular no me gusto mucho.
The Guardian sobre Seth, un semidiós egipcio. Quien fue esclavizado por Noir en Azmodea. Noir le envía en una búsqueda para encontrar la llave de Olimpo y como consecuenci...more
The guardian is about this Egyptian-human demigod who was enslaved by Noir in Azmodea. Noir sends him on a quest to find the key to Olympus and as a consequence Solin (Arik's brother from the dream hunter book) gets kidnapped by the guardian in order to get information about the key.
Well we learned that sexy Solin has a daughter Lydia and the beginning of the book is about her quest to find her father but some how ends up kidnapped by the guardian too.
Well a few days was enough f...more
Ella tiene este talento increíble de crear historias que mezclan mitología -no solo griega- acción y romance en medidas perfectas para entretener al lector.
Y sé perfectamente que el final es predecible, pero las situaciones qu...more
The hero, Seth, is a demigod from his Egyptian father Set and human mother who has been sold into slavery in Azmodea after being abandoned by his mother and then sold by his foster family. He is sold to Noir who essentially uses him as a power leach by torturing him. Basically 4,500 years of torture....more

So even though I didn't know who Seth and Lydia were before I read The Guardian, I was looking forward to...more
Well, there is certainly a lot of action in this one. Unfortunately, Kenyon never grabbed me with her characters. A few of the series' characters were brought in for cameo roles but this was more a rote relating of information than a compelling story. Part of my disenchantment is the lack of information. Important events occur that are just dropped...more
Paranormal Romance- Nov. 1st, 2011
Seth is the slave and Guardian to the terrible Noir. He has been tortured and humiliated for thousands of years and his master is never forgiving. His next task is to find the God Solin and force him to give him a special key for Noir. However, Solin will not break, that is until the lovely Dream-Hunter, Lydia, foolishly tries to save him. When Seth sees that Solin will do anything for Lydia, he makes him a bargain, her lif...more
What I liked:
- Seth was a prototype of a tortured hero that we love. After thousands of years being tortured by Noir, saying he has trust issues is the understatement of the millenium. Seeing him re-gain some of the trust he lost was so good. He was so hurt that I wanted to cry for him.
But when she brushed her hand lightly against his cock,...more

The romance in this honestly moved a bit fast for me (and a bit too much along the "one true love" lines, which I often have a hard time believing), but then, it's a romance novel, so I really can't knock it for being a romance novel. I enjoyed Seth, Lydia was kind of a Mary Sue but still enjoyable, and I certainly wouldn't mind reading the book again.
This was a...more

I thought this book was such a waste of both my time and my money. It was completely unoriginal and unimaginative. I must say, Sherrilyn really got me with this one. I will NEVER buy another one of her books again because it's obvious she doesn't care anything about her fanbase and just wants to write any old thing and put it out because she knows her loyal fans will buy it. Well not this one because I'm done. This book was dull and I was wondering throughout the story "Haven'...more

Sherrilyn Kenyon is making a come back! Now I'll admit the last few books in the dark hunter/dream-hunter series were really boring. They lacked character growth, sexual tension and suspense. Pretty much anything that made me want to keep reading, so going into The Guardian I was a little worried. I had also resigned myself to mediocre books from now, but I am so glad t...more
