As origin stories go this was pretty good. Ethan Daniels is a bad ass superhero of a questionable supernatural origin. He is fighting government corruption while trying to live a normal life and protect those he loves. He is troubled and flawed and not quite sure if his hellbent quest for vengeance is what he should be doing with his life. So, it is also a bit of a cliche. Unfortunately, it didn’t help much that every time he dispatched a bad guy he sounded like Oliver Queen uttering his famous ...more

This is not my usual fare when chosing a book. All too often I find the male protagonist in these kinds of tales of self discovery and redemption difficult to access and the female characters, flimsy. Not so here. Habib has created a sympathetic protagonist who takes us on a compelling journey from would be anti-hero to believable good guy. Ethan starts the story driven by the desire for revenge. It was refreshing watching him gradually relinquish his hold on the need for personal satisfaction a ...more

Awesome story! I really enjoyed the characters, plots, tone, style, and theme of the novel. It has great messages about forgiveness, redemption, and a passion for freedeom (both internal and external). But it masks its themes with a good mix of action, drama, suspense, thrills, and romance. I'm very interested to see how Ethan's, Katrina's, and William's story will turn out at the end. I was excited to go to Ammar's website and see that a sequel is in the works. I will be following the sequel's ...more

I loved the story! I could not put it down. The character of Ethan is a very complex, dark, three-dimensional character who is written excelently. And all the supporting characters really compliment him. The story is a very nicely written, atypical revenge story. I am excited to read the follow-up, which hopefully comes soon!

Awesome story! This book has it all: action, drama, thrills, mystery, and romance! Great character development and an amazing plot with plenty of twist and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. Once you pick up the book, you simply cannot put it down! By far the best fiction novel I've read this year!!

*I was given a copy of this book as a gift from Stephanie's Book Reports in exchange for an honest review.

After not hearing from Ethan Daniels for four long years, his loved one presumes he is dead. Needless to say, everyone is shocked by his sudden return. After spending time with him, some people soon notice that Ethan is not the same man who vanished all those years ago. After witnessing the gruesome death of his adopted sister, Naira, he wants one thing-revenge. He returns home to take out t

Dark Guardian is a great book because the main character is a mix between hero and villain, something we never have in books today. The story development is awesome. I loved the slow plot development and suspense build up that kept me wanting to read more. A bit of a supernatural twist only adds to the story. Any book that keeps me reading when I should be sleeping gets five stars from me.

Amazing read!

Even with the violence, I liked this book. The only reason I rated it low was the grammar was awful. I would have liked a little more story on Daken.

It's ok

This is not a bad story, I guess. I couldn't finish it, though. This story needs a MUCH better editor/proofreader.

Hello everybodyyyyyy!!! Today I will be doing a review on Dark Guardian. So I apologize to the author for this review because it is not exactly positive..... At all.

So first things first, I couldn't get to the third chapter. It was so bad. It was like reading the script for a soap opera. Now don't get me wrong it has room (a lot actually) for development. I immediately caught on to the plot and what was going on, which for me is bad because I like to be surprised by the plot twist not like "oh

Just like a comic book only with no art and unlike comic books the prose is completely illiterate. What a waste of trees
