I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! This book really makes you feel bad for Marcus and Emmy because even though Emmy did steal Marcus from Ameana, Bianca is a real *****. Every time Emmy is hurting I hurt with her. This story is so descriptive you feel as though you are one of the characters in the book. But I do feel some scenes in the book are alittle too detailed for my liking. Julian is one of my least favorite characters in the book. I want to kill him for every single thing he's done to hurt Emmy, ...more

Jun 17, 2013 rated it it was amazing! I can't get enough of this series, of these characters. I can only hope that the last book #6 is out A.S.A.P. PUHLEEEEZZZZ!!! I admit, that chapter 5 is going to be a tough one to get through. Jeeezzz it gets me angry. And there were a few other things. However, I still love them all. I still had to read. The ups and downs is what keeps us all reading. You just never know what's going to happen next.
This author can make you fall in love with a bad guy! I <3 Rage!

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

it got better. I enjoyed the plot of the actual story except for the Marcus Emmy thing. really wish the author had let that go from the beginning. I still think Emmy is a crappy character and Marcus is too.
the story line would gonna lot better if that couple wasn't the main focus.
but I guess it was ok.

I did not like what she did with Marcus in this book. I almost quit reading the series.

I left quite a gap between reading The Quo and reading this book so it took a little time for me to catch up (I should have just re-read The Quo!). I absolutely love the way the twists and turns keep taking me by surprise, except for the spelling and editing issues which I don’t remember there being in the previous books.

Emmy must have an internal vat of superglue the amount of times Marcus keeps breaking her heart, and she still keeps going back for more! In The Lyris, he breaks her heart by ma

I have never wanted to root for someone so much and strangle them at the same time!!! Why is it when it calls for it, no one can be selfless? Then in another moment, you can be... Why is it Emmy agrees to something and then continues to act as if she doesn't (and causes problems by doing that)? Why does Marcus want to sacrifice the world for Emmy but then scolds her when she doesn't think that's right (then decides she's right later)? Why am I so into this?? (Shame on me). Why are there these cy ...more

This book is book number 5 in this series. Well worth the read! Often by the time you get to the fifth book it is getting old. However, that certainly is not the case here. This story is just as good and engaging as the last four have been. We learn that Rage is not all bad or bad at all! The Lyris is a surprise (I will keep it that way). Rage's relationship with the Lyris is so sweet and touching. StVil is a master and does a good job of tying everything in while adding enough new to keep it go ...more

I have loved this series since I started it. I can’t stress to you how awesome it has been reading The Guardian series. Book 5 Part 2 has only added to the excitement. I know that there is only one book left and it makes me sad, but at the same time, I am having a blast reading about Emmy and Marcus and their journey of love and heartbreak. You really want to read this series. I mean honestly you will be just as in love as I am. Happy reading, and I know it will be a happy read for everyone that ...more

This book was.....there is just no words to fully explain how I feel about it. However, I can absolutely say it was a GREAT READ-greater than great!!!! I cried, I laughed, I was anxious, at times a bit frustrated-I was basically on an emotional roller coaster for a good 2 1/2 hrs hahahaha there are 31 chapters, but I really wish there could have been more. I still loved it though and I can hardly wait for the next installment in the guardians series!!!!! EEEEEEK, so excited hahaha

Im getting so tirexd of the back and forth, one minute they are conquering all and the next their love is flat and over for the last 6 books we have had to see this ridiculousness . Im tired of there always being something between them if I were emmy I would give up. This book is wonderful but im tired for emmy I need resolution and so does she . By the way the cliffhanger to die for. I HOPE its emmy.

I love this series and will definately get book 6. The reason for 3 stars is typing and grammatical errors. They keep getting worse - book after book. It is almost painful to read and I got so frustrated at times I walked away from my Nook. I am so over Bianca and wish Em would have taken her out... I know not everyone gets a HEA but day-um there is only so much a person can take before they snap and Marcus is kinda dense lol.

I just finished, and let me tell you, the ending left me with my mouth wide open. I cannot believe Lola StVil!! Having to wait until November will be terrible! I will say that I like the new Emerson! It is about time! However, I don't think she should have left Bianca breathing. If you haven't read book 5, get busy. I took longer reading it because I knew I would have to wait for 6. I will be surprised by this cliffhanger for days to come. Nice play StVil! ...more

I do really love the effort to develop all the characters. And Lola's sick mind has a skill for thinking up torture. :) But I have to admit that this book desperately needs to be re-edited. Usually I have no problem ignoring typos and grammatical errors, especially in self-published, books; but there were so many missed errors in this book, I had to force myself not to grab white-out and fix the library's copy... ...more

Amazing book and series, but getting tired of all the issues between Emmy and Marcus. All I can say is "Really!" Please tell people are not this slow in actual life - enough already. How much are they expected to go through before they go mad? Can't wait for the next book. Let's hope things start looking up for Emmy and Marcus. ...more

Will Love win out

The end of mankind is prolonged once again even though it has cost the lives of many including Rio and Mouse, the baby girl that defeated some of the worst evil known to man, demons and angles

I love this series as well as this story. Love the way to story is written and how it puts you in the story. I want to take Emma and shake her cause she gets herself in trouble, but it feel so real. Love it

New highs and lows for our guardian addiction

We know our guardians love. It's practically in angel code. What's surprising is a demon in love. Especially when a demon's love is lost.
Lola focus more on my favorite anti hero Rage and his internal battles.

It is crazy how they never seem to catch a break, and in short moments they do it doesn't last long. Really liked that Redd came back although not the circumstances around it. Rage is definitely one of my favorites. Looking forward to Emerson though. ...more

I love this book. It turned my thoughts around about Ameana and it has a cliffhanger that you would never have thought about. There is a lot of ups and downs.

This book was amazing just for the change in Rage alone. Redd makes another appearance which was cool. Marcus needs to grow a pair, but he always seems to be between a rock and a hard place.
