The characters are not all that interesting and the "Shields" egos could be taken down a notch. The heroine needs a good dose of self confidence and was a little irritating. I prefer to read about strong characters. Fairly easy to figure out the plot but it's ok if you don't have anything else to read and are stuck on a long flight.

It is a bit predictable. Hugh was a twit! But i will finish series in hopes things turn around. I love Donna Grants books...maybe these were early in her career, but they remind me of a harlequin. She normally writes at a higher level. Like I said, i am not giving up on...

    The Shield's is an excellent series. Could've used a little more

    The Shield's is an excellent series. Could've used a little more sex but the story line was good and you eventually get your HEA. Each one is unique enough to stand alone but you are richly rewarded when reading the entire group

    I loved the storyline of the Shields; warriors working for the F

    I loved the storyline of the Shields; warriors working for the Fae to save the realms from destruction, traveling through time to do so and fighting an ever growing evil along the way. We meet the 6 surviving Shields in this book and Hugh their leader who has a mystery to solve and a lesson to learn about trust and his instincts. We also meet Mina who is drawn to Hugh as he is to her but she has been damaged emotionally and has much to work through. I love characters that are imperfect, it makes them human, easier to relate to. The pace was fast, grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept me wanting more. I liked the interaction between the characters, main and supporting. I will check out the other books in this series. I did note a number of issues that an editor would have caught. They were not bad enough to detract from the story but enough to be noticed and halt reading as I am quite attentive to such things.

    An Enjoyable Read

    I really like this new series. Hugh was a sexy, masculine character that I loved! Mina was a bit of a dissapointment. Overall, a good read. I look forward to the next book in this series.
