Nexi Jones—part witch, part guardian, and wannabe kick-ass warrior—can’t throw a punch or conjure the simplest magic. But that doesn’t stop her from hunting the werewolves who slaughtered her human family. She’ll have her revenge, but only if Kyden, the elite guardian, would get the hell out of her way.
Kyden can’t decide if Nexi wants to get herself killed or if she just has no clue what she’s doing. But her father made it clear: keep Nexi safe…or else. Of course, the more Nexi runs toward revenge, the more she needs Kyden’s aid, and as she grows into her power and confidence, so does his desire to protect her. The only problem? She’d rather he dropped dead.
But when a vampire paints a bull’s-eye on Nexi’s back, she’s hard-pressed to deny Kyden and the help he’s offering. Even if it means getting her revenge will be a little bit harder. At least it will still be as sweet.
I was given a copy of this story for my honest thoughts and honest they will be. Ms. Stacey’s stories always captivate me and lures me onto the other side of the realm. Her writing is cleverly done to make you read more and more and more and more until you do not realize you have read the whole book in one sitting. Okay, maybe two days… But still, she will wrap you around her little finger until she is completely done with you… And this story is no different!
Nexi is a woman who has her world turned upside down and inside out all in the matter of one night. Her parents are brutally murdered right in front of her and she is whisked away to the Otherworld by strangers she has never seen before in her life. But what she soon discovers is that the people that took her to this world are the people that will help her hunt her parents murderers and teach here about her gifts. Gifts that she had no idea she possessed. And the one man that will train her will be the one man that learns how to ignite her magic and her desires…
Kyden is a man whose main responsibility is to protect and defend – at all cost – the Otherworld’s people. He is known for not letting anyone to close to his heart… But when he helps save Nexi, all hell breaks loose on the rules that have protected him for so long. Will he listen to his heart to save the woman his heart is falling for or will saving her cost him his life.
This story is packed with everything that makes a story great… Suspense, drama, action, passion, heartache, bonding and love that this is strong enough to drive this story home. These two characters are amazing separately but together as a team, they are kick ass awesome…. The hell alone that Nexi goes through in this story would be enough to break an average woman, but Nexi doesn’t allow those things from her past to rule her, she knows she has to use those things to fuel her to catch a killer. But she also knows that not all love ends in tragedy…. She has a another family that wants to help her and love her… Kyden wants to teach and train Nexi but what if he doesn’t push her hard enough, will she will be able to protect herself? What happens if he can’t protect her… Of what happens when Nexi can’t protect those that she loves… She has already lost loved ones, she can’t tolerate to lose more…
I know that Nexi and Kyden’s story ends here, but I have a feeling that Stacey will give us more on these Guardians and witches… Because believe me, once you have read Nexi and Kyden’s story, you will want to know more!
