More secrets revealed, more betrayals! There is character growth. Still fast paced and a different take on a vampire PNR. Will review more soon.

I want the next book so bad! :(

*I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*

So, I started this book kind of backwards. I have not read the first book in the series, In the Shadow of Angels, but I will have to read it very soon. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Charlotte is a girl struggling to come to grips with her sister's death after she is forced to return to her childhood home. Aydin is a super hot vampire that was her and her sister's Guardian before things went a bit haywire and

Book one ends with Aydin and Charlotte hiding in a dungeon, and this is where we still find them. The relationship develops slowly between them as each deals with their own inner demons and secrets whilst trying to figure out what everyone else is hiding. The irreverent side character of Lucius was just as compelling as Aydin (who is too serious as times). The banter between blond bombshell Lucius Charlotte was a breath of fresh air amongst all the emotional angst, which I also enjoyed.

I am amazed, in a very violent society I am reading about vampires who love deeply and have remorse, also the author writes beautifully, it is prose.

For those who read to escape and love a good read, I highly recommend this book, and it even has a first book and more to come, wow, I am hooked !!

'In the Shadow of Monsters (The Guardian Series, #2)'by Fanny Lee Savage is the follow-up to 'In the Shadow of Angels' which I already greatly enjoyed for its thought-provoking elements, endearing characters and good story-telling.
This second book is by far darker and grittier than the first, which was pretty mild compared to this one. I have to be honest to confess I'm not normally into vampire stories...at all... but because I loved book 1 so much I wanted to find out what happened to Charlot

Exciting sequel to In the Shadow of Angels! Charlotte has a tough life and spends the first couple chapters of this engaging book literally ‘locked’ away. She is believed to a descendant of beings from which ancient vampires were born. Her parents, eager to give her a ‘normal’ life had she and her twin protected by a guardian. Now, her sister dead, Charlotte has formed an uneasy alliance with Aydin, a vampire sworn to do everything in his power to protect her. Alternately narrated by both Charlo ...more

This book is .......I am not a writer I can't put it into words. It took a very short amount of time to read it. I couldn't put it down.
Fanny, you are phenomenally gifted. The imagination, bravery and confidence you must have to come up with the characters and to bring them to life for us to come to know so well is beyond words.
I am gonna go crazy waiting for the next book. I hope it's soon. You shouldn't let anyone get your way of your imagination and your writing.

This book was really a 3.5 for me. I just feel like I should always round up to the nearest.... Like they taught in school.

Anyway If you're looking for a vampire book that is unique, this is the book for you. There were a few scenes that made me feel like the heroine and her friend were teenagers, but if I think about what they've had to put up with over their lives, it's understandable.

Goodnight

This is one of those books that you just can't put down!!! Fanny writes characters that engage us and make us want to follow them into the dangerously exciting and unpredictable world between reality and Immortality!!! This isn't your average vampire, love story...the plot is unique and keeps us turning pages well into the night! Read it. ...more
