In the accident that killed the love of his life, John imagines he was saved from the fiery wreck by a woman, but was she as angel or something else? No one saw her, she left no tracks, but John just knew she was real and one day he would be drawn to where she was, Russia, no reason, just a feeling.

That journey would take him into a world of vampires, legends and love. THE GUARDIAN by J.L. McFadden has all the bones, all the potential for a fabulous paranormal read, action, danger and romance, b

One evening this book came to my hands. In that moment I have already known it's fanasty about vampires. I can say I don't read a lot about them before and I don't like this topic, but it wasn't important to me, so I wanted to read it. I opened the 1st page and at the same time REAL ACTION said "HELLO!!" to me. Auto accident, fire, high temperature, blood... And all this was finished it was just the nightmare. So I like the books with such begginings... Will not say anything more about this in o ...more

Really interesting plot, seemed a little rushed, but I am interested to see if the next one is better.

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS

John is struggling with his life. A horrific car crash killed his girlfriend and 2 of his friends. W

This story has all the parts to be a great read for me, but it just didn't seem to ever really come together for me.

The characters are there, they are good. The story line is good and the world is really interesting. Like really really interesting - I am really loving the world this author has built.

I hardly ever have bad things to say, and really these thoughts are not bad - the book overall is ok - I just didn't love it, I felt like I need more flow and connectivity throughout the story and th

This story was not a long read, but what a story!! There was a really good story line which really make you want to keep going. There were some parts that happen so fast you kind of are like wait what just happen, otherwise probably a 5. This was your opposites attract storyline that really works but by the end I was like WHAT I didn't see that coming!!! I really can't wait to see what happens next.
