Spoilers for part one

Loved this series, but if in part 2 Markus actually married Bianca I give up. It's so wrong. Emmy worked so hard and finally has him then this one random chick gets in the way :/. If he marries her there is no justice.

This is one of my favourite books of all time and I would seriously read this over and over. Lola StVil is the best author out there and she is my inspiration for writing, I love this series its soooo awesome !!!! SPOILER !! I hope Bianca gets run over, by a bus, with poisened wheels, in front of emmy, I would really enjoy that. Or maybe Rio could kill her... If only.... When Reese came back I was like YOSSSHHHH but then it was an illusion and I nearly started crying TT^TT

Loved this installment of the series ... but wish it had been a bit longer! I finished it in basically one sitting. There were A LOT less typos and grammatical errors than in the other books ... yay! I can't wait for the next book!

Lola dose not disappoint in the continuing saga that is The Guardians. It was nice to find out about other characters and see some of the story from a different point of view.
I will be waiting for part 2

Another hit out of the park by Lola St. Vil. She leaves you intrigued and wanting to know the whole story from the moment you read the first page.
Feb 23, 2013 rated it it was amazing
Wow! What a great installment!! I couldn't wait to read this, and with that cliffhanger, I'll be even more anxious in waiting for Part 2!
Such a great story, and a brilliant series.
Feb 24, 2013 rated it it was amazing
Oh my god what a cliff hanger, I cannot wait to read the last part of this story to see how it all ends.
Feb 26, 2013 rated it it was amazing
Again amazing. Can't believe the ending and can't wait to read part 2 when it comes out. This story just gets better and better as the books go on. Exciting times. All round amazing !

Okay, this review is not just for this particular book (I'm putting the same version on each book) but for every single hair pulling book in the series. I have rated the books mostly 4's and I'll stand by that because the story, had it been about something like super heroes, rather than "angels/demons" it would have been great. But...they're not. They're St. Vil's warped idea of angels. Here are my MAIN issues.

1: She is obviously either an Atheist or not of a Christian religion

When I finished Book 4 of the Guardian series I was beginning to lose hope in the series, the main reason being that there were just way too many typos and grammatical errors through out the book. I was finding one near enough on every other chapter and it really started to bug me.

I decided to read The Quo because I love the characters in this series, the World that Lola has made up, and I was intrigued to know what happened next. I was not disappointed. As well as there not being many spelling

Flying into the Angel World in the light, Boom no more world. Even though there is no more angel world...the Team is complete again, however war is coming! Many Quos are released and angry enough to kill. They took down the angel world, but they still need to kill angels. How is the Team going to protect their kind and stop the war to continue.

Emmy was done with the mission that she had to be involved with, however she was needed again.

I noticed there were far fewer typos in this book. In previous books the typos were a major distraction. I like that Rage is in the story more. I'm already not a fan of Bianca. I don't think that this part of the story warrants a " book 5 part 1" and "part 2"; just the one book. Having read the Noru series, I know what to expect but not when, so curiosity will keep me reading the series. Actual rating is closer to a 3.5, maybe even a 4, but the story was cut short.

Talk about suspense poor Emmy has been through so much throughout this series and it's about to get more complicated:/ I love this series however and am on to the next chapter of it to find out what becomes of it start at book one which is free currently on Amazon! I give this book and all the ones before it 5 stars love the writing there is a lot of punctuation errors but worth overlooking for sure!

What an absolute disappointment, this is the first review I have ever written because I need to share my absolute frustration with these books. The author knows how to write a captivating story, but the editing is sorely lacking. Each book in the series has more and more spelling errors. What a great story, such a pity about the spelling errors. It is a disgrace to charge more than $0.99 for a book with so many errors.

Holy cliff Hanger!!!! Oh and FINALLY we get them where we want them to be and bam something else happens. Loving Rage...never thought I'd say that, but it's a twist I never thought about. Liking the story line. I pray I don't have to wait long for the last book. Puhleeezzz don't keep me waiting.

Love this series

I loved this book. I can't stop reading them, no matter what my boyfriend or my bank account says. I just have three books left and it's not like I have a choice. I have to find out what happens next. I think I can relate to Emmy. And like guys, when it comes to books I like the ones that can make me laugh.

Love the story,but did I miss something 5 part1 just jumps in their seems like a big piece is missing what happens.I know they argue about taking the tripix out of Emmy. Then nothing about how this war started.
May 28, 2015 rated it it was ok
I was drawn into these books from the start but this book, even though brilliant didn't get me excited to continue with the series! I really like the angel but the human? She's so annoying I can't continue to care what happens.

Lola does it again

I can never decide who's side I'm on more. Marcus, or Emmy but it seems once again the lines are drawn. At what point do they stop fighting? At what point are they just killing themselves to try?

I love the book i just started it and finished it in less than 5 hours but I hate the whole Emmy and Marcus love. Why whenever is going well for them something happens. I will take a time out from the Guardians because I cant handle it lol

Guardians: The Quo (The Guardians Series, Book 5, Part 1) by Lola St. Vil

This book was fantastic I can't wait to read the next book in the series. So much fighting, magic, and love, what more could you want.
Heather De Los Reyes
Seriously another twist!

This series keeps you on your toes that's for sure. I can't believe how many twists come within one book alone. I can't imagine what the next story will have in it but I'm hoping for a happy ending for Marcus and Emmy

“Everyone thinks you saved me the day you threw us off the tower. But the truth is you saved me way before that. Every time you smile, you save me. I’m surrounded by Guardians everyday but I didn’t encounter courage until I met you. I lived in the light but I didn’t find peace until I held you.
