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 O
This is one of the best books in the series and Seth has climbed up among the first places of my favorite dark hunter characters.
Set was rejected by his father, his mother and later on by a family of jackals that raised him and sold him to heartless god Noir that drained his power, made him a slave and kept him for thousands of years in Azmodea. There, he was constantly be ...more
I knew it would be good, but didn't expect it to be this good! Of course, I normally have very high expectations of this author’s books. But this one! I don’t think it would be exaggerating to say that this installment totally went above and beyond all that I could ever ask for in a paranormal romance novel. The Guardian was thoroughly brilliant! The author wove everything I love to read into this strong story, which had me glued to the pages from start to finish.
I loved the gr ...more
To start with, we actually had likable characters - both the male and female. There is Seth, a demi-god who is stuck in the "hell realm" and has been tortured for thousands of years but can't die. He has been released to retrieve the "key" to Olympus that will give the key-bearer the ability to de ...more
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

Seth had a tragic and sad history. (I swear this author may hate men because most of them are tortured in sick and disgusting ways) My heart broke for him. He was damaged. Seriously damaged. How could you not be after never having a kind word or touch your ENTIRE life. He had no self esteem, but I was ok with his negative thoughts or reactions. They were not excessive nor did they really inh ...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
Lydia, Were-Hunter and Dream-Hunter, has gone to Azmodea to retrieve Solin from Noir's evil cluthes. Wh ...more
This is the first dream hunter book that really rocked my world. I loved the cast of characters except for Noir and Azure of course, what bastards they were. Pure evil right to their black souls. And even after what they did to Seth for forty five thousand years he still survived and even though he did not want to feel hope much less love there was one person who brought those dr ...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
I liked the characters and the story for the ...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.
Now he's tasked with getting ...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 gla ...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
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
Okay, I am going to start by saying that Sherrilyn Kenyon is the best paranormal romance author ever! She is my fave and I adore her Dark Hunter series. With The Guardian, I instantly fell in love with the characters, the story and even where the story takes place. I loved her even, nice flow and her smooth transitions from Azmodea to Chicago. I have one word for Ms. Kenyon......FLAWLESS!!!!
The story is absolutely to die for.....and finally the characters. OMG!!! Seth is ...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
Once Seth and Lydia admit that they care for each other (in their own heads) I was okay with it. I think the turning point for me was when she was teaching him about surfing the internet. I love that humor. Seth was a funny guy... even though he wasn't trying to be.
I know the characters are all the tormented hero but I just wasn't feeling Seth until ...more
