The Guardian (Hellchaser #4)
Dream-Hunter Lydia has been charged with the most sacred and dangerous of missions: To descend into the Nether Realm and find the missing god of dreams before he betrays the secrets that could kill her and her kind. What she never expects is to be taken prisoner by the Realm’s most vicious guardian…
Seth’s time is running out. If he can’t hand over the entrance to Olympus
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 know...that was a mouthful and it can be confusing but it manages not to be in some weird way. I will have to say (IMO) that this is NOT a dark hunter book or a dream hunter book...more

This felt like a total return to classic Kenyon. I love the story line and the twisted nature of the Hero. What better way to tame a wild beast then to force him face to face with a beautiful and seemingly unattainable "lily". Love the historical references as always and the return to our Greek pantheon as a focus with sidelines in common Eg...more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
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
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
I'm more of a Dark-Hunter gal, but boy oh boy I might be swaying and gone to the Dream-Hunter side!
This novel confused the living wits outta me when I first began reading it. Once I got the feel to the story plot and learned more about the characters, no one could make me put this book down.
I loved the Hero with every thread in my body. I honestly can't say I could compare Seth to all the Heroes in this series, although each and every one of them...more
Seth was such a tortured soul, betrayed by all in his life and I loved how Lydia got to know him and well healed him. I won't go into the whole mythology of it, Jaden, Thorn etc all make an appearance but I really enjoyed the book.
This book was, firstly, absolutely enjoyable. The storyline had me so enthralled because, fundamentally, the characters had me enthralled! Sherrilyn Kenyon is, without question, known to create...more
I LOVE it when authors bring ASL into...more
I love seeing this side of the Kenyon universe, the side with various pantheons, Noir and all that other darkness. I love the world of Dark Hunters too, but...more
Lydia has no idea why Solin has been taken to Noir’s realm of Azmodea, but she does know she won’t leave...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
I agree with other reviewers that this felt like a retread. I didn't think we could get a more tortured hero than...more
“All men while they are awake are in one common world. But each of them, when he is asleep, is in a world of his own.”
“Was hell good for you?”
Seth looked up from beneath the strands of his blood soaked auburn hair, to snarl at the sound of a voice he hadn’t heard in centuries.
Lord of all things dark and deadly.
He would respond to the stupid question, but his mouth had been bolted shut by the demons who’d been torturing him for the last…
Ah hell, who c...more
In this book we meet Seth. He was sold to Noir when he was a child. Seth is an incredibly strong demigod but his powers have been drained by Noir...more
