OK this series just got good. So far each book has added more mystery. About 3/4 of the way through the book, I realized it had a Edward, Bella, Jacob love triangle going on. The supernatural guy (Seth) who fell in love with the girl (Genesis) who is always in some kind of danger. Then the best friend/old boyfriend (Carter) who is also in love with her and works with supernatural guy to keep her safe. Her relationship with Seth is nearly an impossible situation and it makes more sense for her to ...more

I did enjoy this book quite a lot! It seems to be a nice little series that has captured my attention.
I wouldn't say that it is my favourite nor the amazing series that grabs you that i was looking for, but i am enjoying reading the series so far and i would recommend it!

I can say however, although I did enjoy this book, I am disappointed. I wanted to get into an amazing series that I just couldn't stop reading, but this book wasn't the one for me. I can't even bring myself to read the next boo

This book was full, it seemed to be packed full of so much information, and so many things happened in this book. First off I love the new relationship Gee has with Carter, that they are best friends. I like that her and Selena have become friends and that Joshua is still around, and of course the loving, sexy Seth is still with Gee. I hate that Gee is so set on Vengeance it seems to make her a different person at times, and it affects her relationship with Seth which breaks my heart. I find it ...more

*rating 2.5/5

This book was... weird... And not good weird... Even though it had the same structure as the first one and I did like the short chapters the writer used in The Guardian, in this one, it felt like there were parts missing from the story and the chapters weren't enough... I don't know... Even though I liked the story and it goes on okay from were it was left in book 1, I can't put my finger on what is wrong with it... I've already started reading book 3, so maybe the sequel was just t

This was a good follow up to the Guardian as Genesis goes Buffy the Vampire Slayer and starts to physically train! Her romance with Seth stays solid, which was good because I hate the stories where they constantly profess their love for each other yet somehow they are unsure how the other feels....BLAH!!! None of that here, but I do like how Carter gets a more active role in this story and I like how him and Genesis form a more solid friendship and learn to lean on eachother while obtaining a pl ...more

After the fire, Genesis’ life fell down around her. She stood there watching. Now, living in Carter's pool house, things are much more awkward than they used to be... especially since Seth is kind of living there too. This isn't just about Carter and Seth anymore though, it is about revenge.

Genesis is constantly looking for Viola- she deserves to pay for what she did. The only thing Genesis can do now is wait, and prepare for the inevitable. Genesis might be the one that falls this time.

Wow Vendetta was intense and oh so good! Genesis kicks some major booty. She's growing up and discovering more about herself and her abilities. I love Seth. He's even more swoon worthy in this book than in The Guardian (I didn't think that was possible). Carter has really grown on me. He's such a sweetie. Joshua is hilarious.

I really like Vendetta, but man, oh man, can you say cliffhanger?! I can't wait to find out what happens.

Reading this book was like watching a movie, especially towards the end. I liked the description of every part, especially the vital ones. Seth and Genesis seem to be fighting a losing battle. In the war between good and evil it seem like evil will stop at nothing to win. Even tear Seth and Genesis apart if they can.

I didn't want to put this book down once I started it. Highly recommend this book. Can't wait to read book three.

I wasn't sure where Genesis's story was going, but the new Guardians and Diabols were an exciting addition. Usually I have a pretty good idea where a story is going to lead and who is going to end up with who; but I am honestly not sure what is going to happen with Genesis. I did, however, think that there was much better character development in this second book and I enjoyed it much more than the first book, "Guardians."

I love the book, it pulls you in just like the first one, I wish other than that last one, there would be more of them, they story is amazing to say the least... i would have never known the author if i wasn't going through the books on amazon.... I recommend this book and the first one, and soon i will be reading the third one...

So glad that's over

The first book in this trilogy was okay. This one drove me crazy. Genesis drove me crazy. Not enough action. It was pretty much a snooze-fest. I may read the next one but no time soon. I have to read something good to get this taste out of my mouth.

I tried so hard to enjoy this series. I just couldn't get into it. The concept was decent but the characters just didn't speak to me.

Great series action packed with many twist and turns, has a lot mystery as it keeps you guessing who can Genesis really trust.
