Survival (The Guardians of Vesturon, #1) by A.M. Hargrove Resurrection (The Guardians of Vesturon, #2) by A.M. Hargrove A.M. Hargrove

Survival Synopsis:
"Maybe I was caught between the two worlds. I was having serious trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality."

While on a backpacking trip in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, nineteen-year-old Maddie Pearce finds her world has been thrown into a vortex and is madly spinning toward the impossible. Abducted by a mad psychopath, Maddie narrowly escapes with her life. But that is only the beginning. Her mysterious rescuer introduces her to a world that Maddie has difficulty accepting as reality. Will this strikingly gorgeous stranger be the key to her future or will she return to her mundane world, scarred from her experience? Follow Maddie as she is forced to make difficult decisions that carry her to mysterious places.

Resurrection Synopsis:
"Maddie knew she was dying. Her life started to flash before her. She had visions of running down the soccer field, scoring a goal, eating her mother’s yummy, homemade, sticky cinnamon rolls, standing in her foyer listening to the police tell her father that her mother had been killed in a car accident. Each vision was disturbingly clear—as if it was happening again."

Rayn Yarrister, the first-born son and Leader of The Guardians, has been imprisoned on Vesturon for breaking their most sacred of covenants. He is suddenly jolted by Maddie's telepathic pleas for help, as her life hangs in the balance. Can he alert The Guardians in time to save his soulmate? Or will he face his trial alone and broken without his one true love?

In Resurrection (Book 2), The Guardians of Vesturon are facing their biggest challenges as Earth is threatened by an invading species from a distant planet intent on destroying it for its resources. The Guardians, as protectors of the universe, have been assembled to defend not only Earth, but other vulnerable worlds as well. The Yarrister family is threatened by an unknown entity intent on discrediting them. Will they uncover this plot in time to save themselves from ruin? Will The Guardians succeed in stopping the Xanthians, or will Earth be invaded and ravaged by this marauding species?

Lily | 180 comments Hi guys,
Sorry for the newbie question but I noted that there is an instruction to crosspost. Does this mean I would be posting my review on these other websites in addition to Goodreads, and indicate the address for all posts to verify? How does that work?

Glad you asked Lily. I was wondering also. Never posted at B&N

Sheri | 12206 comments Mod
@Lily, we would like you to post your reviews in as many places possible (Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, ect.). The more places the reviews are posted the more it helps the author :)

We know that some people can't post reviews everywhere, and that's fine. Post it to Goodreads for sure and let us know where else you could post it. You don't need to copy the URLs from every page; we'll take your word for it :)

To post on Amazon you had to have purchased something from them in the past. To post to Smashwords you have to have downloaded the book you're reviewing from them. B&N doesn't have any requirements, you just have to have an account, which is free.
