    more from this reviewer

    An Urban Fantasy with an interesting and rich world of Waerds (Hunters) and Bearers (the emotional balance to what needs done).

    The first chapter was a hit! Brought me right in to the world Jacquelyn is in along with the action too.

    Lots of this world blended with meeting everyone and the ways of Jacquelyn. Loved the creation of the world Jacquelyn is in, and the potential to come. I do want more of it.
    The Sentry - Super secret supernatural business
    The Bearer - Tracker and Magic gauge, and all they can do for their Waerd with emotional and physical bruises
    The Waerd - An appointed protector of ghouls, demons, and their ilk - the hunter of them all when they attack

    I get a feel that the world of The Sentry with the Bearers and Waerds is so much more. There is a heavier story behind all of the creation here, and I want it! I am taken with this creation and look forward to reading more and more as Jacquelyn, Micah, and Finn learn about it as well.

    The characters are catching, along with their abilities and connection to each other and the world created. Micah has no idea what he is and what he is wandering into. But here in McCall, he starts to feel connected to his "gift" or curse as he calls it. He starts to feel better, and it's all thanks to Jacquelyn. It seems the Waerd and Bearer work together to keep each other grounded, in more ways than one. Jacquelyn has issues in her past she needs to work through, and Micah seems to be the one to help her through those. Finn is still in love with Jax and is struggling to get through their breakup.

    We get a few different POVs here. Jacquelyn, Micah, and the man who has "the vengeance's" to his use (or is it the other way around, he to the vengeance's use?). This gives us the view from all angles. The hunter, the bearer, and the furies in attach. With Jacquelyn not having her queues there are attacks, the POV of the vengeance user is very important, and also adds suspect to your reading.

    The fury view is so well done it makes me wonder who it is. I had one suspect from the beginning, then all the sudden I was up to two (possibly three) suspects! I had to keep reading to see who it was!

    Only one little piece that stuck out to me. One sentence. Jacquelyn is a smart girl, but there is mention that she gets a vibe from someone and wishes Micah or Finn was with her to look at him. Then she seems to forget this thought. I know her emotions are numbed, which is some explanation along with all going on with the hunk of men (Micah and Finn) around her. She's slightly off her game, and this is the example to show it. She's on the hunt for Furies and knowing she needs to pay close attention, and she knows this. Knowing the Furies could be attached to anyone, even if she thinks this person may not be likely. Other than this one little mention, I truly enjoyed this book!

    I love the mystery and unknown behind Waerds and Bearers, completely different. And the connection between the two. What the Bearer can do for Waerds, explains Jacquelyn's emotions so perfectly, especially when in hunter mode.

    An Urban Fantasy read with a rich world. I want to know more and look forward to future books!
