I’ve lived in shadows all of my life
Feeling empty, but never knowing what I was truly missing
I’ve been taught to hide my talents and be invisible
Until Kendrix walks into my life and sees me. All of me.
I know he is my destiny, but he is holding himself back
There is something he isn’t telling me
I’m afraid when the truth comes out, it will tear us apart

Well, where do I even begin with this one?? This is a totally different view for us from being all in the Fae world. I love how we get to see Kendrix with Alysia. Such a change from the other books in the series.

I was on an roller coaster of emotions with this story. I loved Kendrix from the previous book and wanted so much for him. When he is given this mission, I sort of held my breath through the whole thing hoping that it would turn out in his favor. I quickly fell in love with Alysia as wel

Elle this is an amazing book!
Kendrix has given up everything he loves his family, friends and all that's good including his soul to fall so that he can save the Faes. What he discovers when he meets Alysia has him questioning Fate as to why they would show him what his life could be, knowing now it would never be. Alysia has her own secrets that could get her hurt but Kendrix is there to protect her from the fallen and tell her the truth about her fate. The chemistry is off the charts with these

This book was different from the rest in the series. I think it is my favorite! I have loved them all though. We get to see a bit of the other side the dark, fallen Fae life.
I was so worried at the end of book 3, so scared for Kendrix. Everything he has ever known and everything he has been is gone all is new and all is changed. But has he changed? His caring and protective side was still shinning through.
I felt horrible for Alyssa she was strong yet so naive, so clueless to what her world real

4 Magical Stars!

Saving Kendrix is the 4th book in the Fae Guard series and it’s a standalone. This is a fantasy romance novel about a group called the Fae. They are the descendants of angels, falling between humans and angels. They are magical creatures with protective powers used for good. They have one rule and that is they can never lie. Once they tell a lie, they become a Fallen Fae and their soul darkens. They lose their purity and their soul.

Saving Kendrix is Kendrix and Alysia’s story. Ke

This is the first in the series I have read and although reading the others before may have helped with a better appreciation of the situation you don’t need to really for Kendrix does a nice flashback for us.

My first time reading elle christensen and it won’t be my last. I am so very glad that when she was at a author in the city event in Orlando I purchased the whole series from her because just based from this book, I can say I will enjoy it. the writing was wonderful and the book scrumptious

“There is no coming back from the darkness that will overtake me.”

Saving Kendrix is everything I expected it to be…and yes, I cried. Elle Christensen did it again! The book is steamy—extremely steamy (lol)—the plot was engaging, and I fell so hard for the characters! There was the usual silly sarcastic thoughts, which has become kind of Elle’s signature style at this point,
I really enjoy when I see an Elle Christensen novel pop up for review. I'm one who is picky on my fantasy novels, and tend to lean towards those that I have read before, or that really pique my interest. With that being said, Saving Kendrix was really something that took me by a good way. From page one you can tell there is a much different writing style that Elle Christensen uses than she did in the previous novels. And, for this book in particular, I feel that it really did well ...more

In all honesty, I have been dying a slow death as I waited for this book. Kendrix has intrigued me since “Chasing Hayleigh”. I knew something was up and that Elle’s wicked mind had something BIG in store for Brannon’s twin. If you have read The Fae Guard series this is a different sort of journey than the other books.

There is always the contrast of light and dark in this series, and you know who is right or wrong, but in this book Elle makes you question the darkness and what it is meant to be

Kendrix has fallen….fallen for a mission and to find another fallen fae, Alysia. But when he finds her all is not as it seems and things are about to get even more complicated than they already are!

“Where I stand, at this moment, is one circle of Hell. But, it is cold and dark, filled with misery at knowing what I’ve left behind and what is stretched before me. I do my best not to dwell on what was because there is no greater pain than remembering times of love and joy when they are forever out

I am a huge fan of this author and this series. This story broke my heart. This story is very emotional and very serious. There are few moments of laughter like I have come to expect from the other stories. Kendrix is riding a thin line throughout the story and my heart broke for him. He is normally a very humorous character. Elle did an amazing job portraying all the strain he was going though. All the pain and loss he suffered. There were several moments in this story that

Another sexy and griping chapter to this fast paced, one hell of a ride, series!

Alysia, dark Fae, but not by choice. She's not know any other way, her life of being in the shadows was chosen for her. She's lived her life not really knowing her true abilities, the rules of the Fae, or where she comes from. She's left vulnerable and in danger, and she doesn't even know it. To add to that danger her night job isn't one to brag about, she runs in

The Fae Guard series has held a piece of my heart since the beginning, but Kendrix, sigh, completely stole what was left of it.

I recommend reading the series from the beginning because it's that good. It will also give you more background info on Fae and Fallen.
Saving Kendrix is book 5 of the series. I can honestly say my favorite as well. I loved the others, but the tragic hero takes the cake.

Saving Kendrix is book four in the Fae Guard series by Author Elle Christensen. It is a paranormal/fantasy romance novel.

"There is no coming back from the darkness that will overtake me."

I have been dying to get Kendrix's story since I first met him in this series. His path is one that I knew would likely gut me, as I have become so attached to him and those close to him.

"...the moment she walks away from me, I'll let her take it with her. I won't need my soul without her."

This was my first book from the author and I wasn't disappointed. This is the 5th book in the Fae Guard Series and even though I hadn't read the others it didn't matter. I have now brought the others though as I loved his style of writing, the characters and the storylines.

It was quite a dark storyline which I was on tender hooks the whole way through wondering if Kendrix and Alysia would get their happy ending. He had give up his life

Kendrix is asked to do something that he didn't know he could do and that means leaving behind he family and friends especially his twin brother. Kendrix doesn't like who he sees when he looks in the mirror. He is so different from what he use to be. Kendrix is asked to do something else for the greater good of his people and again he accepts it even though he doesn't like it.

Alysia is a fae but didn't grow up in that life because her mother didn't want that for her. She didn't know about that l

By far the best book in the series and my favorite. Strong characters, good action and interactions.

Kendrix is asked to sacrifice a lot in this one. He has to leave his brother, friends and home to complete an assignment that will be of benefit to the greater good. It's a "the lives of the many outweigh the lives of a few" situation. Of course he accepts the challenge.
We meet Alysia in this one. She is a Fallen but has been sheltered by her mother all her life and has limited knowledge of her F

I was left speechless with Saving Kendrix. Elle Christensen knocked me off my feet when not even 30% into the book, I was crying my eyes out, searching for my tissue box. This book gives you a different glimpse into the world of the Fae and its eye opening. I’m going to try my hardest to not spoil anything for you.

Kendrix’s story is heart wrenching. He’s asked to give up everything for the good of all. And in doing so, finds the one thing he’s been searching for all his life. Then he’s tasked wi

Another amazing book in the addictive Fae Guard series! The story of Kendrix and Alysia is much different than any of the other books in the series so far. In Saving Kendrix we get to see more of the dark side of the Fae, and you feel yourself walking the line between good and evil. I love Alysia because she is so different than any of the female characters we have met so far in this series. She is just as easily to fall in love with, but she has a bit of a rebel side that is a fun twist.

Kendrix is the fae who has to make the hardest decision of his life to get Alysia to the Fae. He makes his choices and must live with them. I laughed, I cried, I cried, I loved and I cried again.

He has given up his soul to save the ones that he loves. While dealing with all of the turmoil that comes along with this journey, Fate goes against him to reveal what could have been. The thing he's always wanted most is now right in front of him. Another choice now lies ahead; one that is consuming his soul. Will he ...more

My heart broke for Kendrix. His and Alysia's story in beautiful and heartbreaking. Kendrix is asked to make a choice and now has to live with the choice he made. Then the thing he's always wanted in right in front of him. So he has to make a another choice. A choice that is ripping his heart out, even more than the one that's consuming his soul. Will he make the right choice? Love this series! I love Fate I can't wait for her book! She's Awesome!

Really enjoy this series!

Another great installment to the Fae Guard series. Entertaining read, good fantasy element, a plot that keeps you turning the pages...all what I've come to expect from Elle Christensen.

Overall, I can't stop myself from reading this series. I'm intrigued! The only downside, the dialogue is a bit cliche at times, and there are several editing errors...but not enough to take away from the story.

4 stars for storyline

Awww. This book is amazing! As what title is, this book is Kendrix's story. From the start up to the last, I was hooked and I can't put it down. Kendrix's story is heartbreaking yet romantic on some levels. Kendrix was told to do one thing that will change everything in his life. Sacrifice everything even his future. As the story goes, things will get more interesting and full of surprises. I really loved it! Full of surprises and tons of unexpected events. Loved it!!!

I'm not usually a fan of paranormal books, but the Fae Guard series books have always been able to suck me right in. Saving Kendrix was no different. This was an amazing book. The characters and the story are so well developed. You really grow to love these characters and feel like you know them. Alysia and Kendrix have such amazing chemistry together and I really loved how strong his love is for her.

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.
I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.
