THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!

I received a free ARC copy of Forever (Guardian #2)for my honest review.

I loved Guardian. I did love it so much. When I love a first book that much, it makes me a little afraid to read the next. I'm always scared I will be let down. BUT THAT DID NOT HAPPEN AT ALL. QUITE THE OPPOSITE

We follow Hannah in her rebirthed life in Australia with her kids and her job as Guardian and her forever longing for the wonderful Gabriel. Yummy, delicious Gabriel. If you've read Guardian yo

It is rare for me to find a sequel in trilogy which is even remotely as good as the original book. For the second time this year I found a sequel not only as good but even better than the first book in the trilogy. This makes me very excited to read the third book in the trilogy. Oh and good news, It may not be a trilogy any longer, it might turn out in a series. Goodness knows Hannah has enough to keep us busy for the next three hundred years.
The story begins fast and the pace keeps up througho

My book review of
Forever by Gillian Joy

First off I have to say I have been a very bad girl. I have 4 book reviews to write but I just received the book Forever which is the second book in the Guardian Series. It keep screaming to me cause I feel in love with Hannah in the first book Guardian. I started and finished it in an hour tell you how FABULOUS it was. This story flows right from the ending of Guardian we don't miss anything. Hannah and Gabriel dance with their feelings once again what is

I should start by saying that when I heard that the author was releasing arcs for this book, I was as bad as the little kid in class who always jumped up and down shouting, "Pick Me! Pick Me!". I loved the first book and have been looking forward to this release for a long time. I was so excited when I got to read it a week early. Whenever I get this excited for a book, I worry that it will not come close to living up to my expectations. Actually, that happens quite often :(. Forever, however, w ...more

Forever, what can I say, it can be a long time and the title explains it all in that one little word. It's a perfect title for a perfect story. The journey is not over and I am looking foward to reading about Hannah's next adventure. There are some shockers in this book but you will have to purchase the book and read it to find out for yourself. Thank you Gillian for piecing together some of my questions and writing another awesome book.

If you thought the 1st book was good this 2nd one is amazing! There's action, adventure, mystery and above all, it's a fantastic love story and I am looking forward to the 3rd book in the series. It was hard for me to put this book down, I read until the early morning and I still did not want to put this book down!

Hannah continues on her journey as guardian, but her life is far from easy. Despite her strong willed determination and her extra “gifts” Hannah is having a hard time keeping up with a

By: Author Gillian Joy

A Brilliant and Explosive part 2 in the series!!!

It was 6am in the morning when I finished “Author Gillian Joy’s” first novel in this series “Guardian”. I was so completely captured within this story that I couldn’t even wait to start reading the next book “Forever” in this series. So I purchased and downloaded the 2nd book in this series right then and there and read the very first chapter. I was not disappointed one bit. “Author Gillian Joy’s” brilliant way of stor

This is the second book in the Guardian Series. I loved this book as much, if not more, than the first one. It was hard for me to put this book down. I read the first few chapters while I was getting a tattoo and the last three chapters as I was sick in bed. Like I said, hard to put down. It still has the characters we fell in love with in Guardian, plus a few new ones. The book has a great flow and a storyline that keeps you hooked from beginning to end. It will truly leave you wanting the next ...more

Gillan gave me the honor again to read the second book in her Guardian Series. I loved Guardian, but I think I love Forever even more. I'm just in love with all her characters. I also think I could fall into Gabriel's arms forever, hee hee. I can also relate to Hannah's character and her personality of being down to earth. She is so likeable and only wants whats best for everyone.
In this book, we start where we left off right after the Custas meeting. Hannah is back in Australia in the story. H

Forever is amassing, great, awesome. In Forever Hannah has to deal with the fairies and the mermaids.Forever is so detail that I felt like I was there next to Hannah and wanting to use her powers to warm up the Fairy Queen. I also like the fact that we get to know more about her kids, and her mother's, her life in Australia. I love the fact that in this book a lot of my questions where answered. Also in Hannah learns new things about her pass, present and Future! Like in Guardian, Forever if ful ...more

This was a much slower paced book than Guardian. There was not a lot of nail-biting action that keeps you wanting to forego everything else and just read but everything seems to be an integral part of the storyline. The relationships between the characters was more fully developed. I was glad to see the relationship between Hannah and her biological father did not suffer when she found out the truth. Hannah had many of her questions answered when she went with the mermaids and spoke with (no I'm ...more

After reading Guardian, the first book in the trilogy, I just HAD to read Forever. I always go into the second book a little leery because sometimes stories are just better left at one book only. Boy does this book contradict my thoughts! It's hard for me to tell you what I like without spoilers so I'm just going to say that Forever just MIGHT be better than Guardian. Maybe ;)
Feisty Hannah is on yet another round of adventures with more of the supernaturals and oh my goodness! This fast paced st

Well I don't think you could get anymore into one book if you tried..

Phew I need a nap, lol.

No but seriously what an awesome sequel. It was everything you would want in a book 2, it finished off all the unanswered questions from book 1 and started a whole round of others for book 3.

I still think Hannah is the most frustrating character EVER and it's quite different to read a book where the characters are madly in love but never act on it .

I liked Forever better than Guardian and i can't wait fo

Book Review 6 out of 5

Hannah is the Venatorcustos, Guardian of all supernatural beings. She has been reborn and is living in Australia with her family. Being Guardian of the supernatural is hard enough, but trying to raise her family in peace is harder still. The Mermaids and Fairies are requesting her help. Can Hannah help them, and sort out her personal problems before she loses the one man she loves forever?

This is the second book in the Guardian series by Gillian Joy.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This was such a great story from the very first pages. The characters we met in the first book continued to grow and come alive so much more in this book. With the continued battle of trying to balance motherhood with a love life, and a career not only as an editor but as the venatorcustos, Hannah becomes so real and truthfully I was tired from all she did - right along with her! We are taken deeper into the underworld as we are introduce

I really loved Guardian by Gillian Joy, so when I found out that its next part, Forever, had been released, I was beyond ecstatic! It got bumped up on my reading list because it was just screaming at me!

We catch up with Hannah in Australia. She's figuring out the whole single parent thing without the help of Sam, who had been her help since her husband died. Sam had decided to go join the vampire custos with Jesse.

Hannah was approached by the fairy prince, who had fallen in love with a human. Fa

I honestly would give this book more than 5 stars, because it truly deserves it as far as the story line goes. The only problem I had with it was at times there were miss spelled words, and grammar mistakes.
Amazing, I loved book 1 Guardian and then I started Forever and I was just like wow. Neither one of these books disappointed me. In Forever questions were answered, and surprises were revealed. I caught myself going WHAT no way how

I was given this book in return for an honest review. Venatorcustos Hannah, is the guardian of all things supernatural. She is havering a very rough time though. She left and was reborn in the first book because she needed a break. Now she has a family and children to protect and she strives for normalicy. She still loves vampire Gabriel but where does he fit in her new life, she is torn and its so complicated for her. Sam and Bernard are back as well as Gabriel and I must admit, I missed them. ...more

My review of Forever book 2 in the Guardian series, by Gillian Joy published by Smashwords.
I was given this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

Gillian Joy has done it again. The second installment to the Guardian series has more than surpassed my expectations for a sequel. To many times I have been disappointed in the past with a sequel that is just a regurgitation of the previous book with some slight variances. This is definitely not the case. There are more than a handful of ti

Have to confess I expected a nice read after the first part, but this was even better than I expected. As it was the second part, there were some repetitions of the first part (I understand the need if someone would pick up the second part first and would feel lost otherwise) and lots of things got clearer in here.
The relations between the people get more explained, you get to know some more background, and most important of all, some misunderstandings get cleared away (even if that only happen

“Forever” by Gillian Joy, Book #2 in the Guardian series, is the first in the series that I have read. It follows Hanna, a guardian of the supernatural in the human world. Like all humans she has her mundane problems such as child care and dating. As supernatural she has to help, guide and protect other species on the planet and try to keep the peace between them: Vampires, Fairies, Werewolves, witches and angels, to name but a few.
