Guardian Witch Book Four

A dead body, black magic, and a vampire enforcer...

Ari thought her biggest problem was deciding if she should move in with her vampire boyfriend, Andreas. That was before they found the dead body at the bottom of the Riverdale cliffs. And before she realized he'd been cursed by black magic.

Just as she begins the murder investigation, the vampire rulers in Europe send an enforcer to make inquiries into the recent defeat of the Toronto vampire prince. While Andreas has taken responsibility for the brutal dictator’s death, there is much about the incident that he and Ari must keep to themselves—secrets the vampire elders would stop at nothing to learn.

With threats of retaliation hanging over their heads, Ari moves into Andreas’s Victorian mansion—for safety’s sake—while the enforcer begins a campaign of terror. Ari is caught between competing dangers and challenges: black magic, a ghost, a missing Native American artifact…not to mention a new roommate…all while trying to stay alive…

    Blood & Fire has a very smooth star. It is not shocking but

    Blood & Fire has a very smooth star. It is not shocking but not boring either. Blood and Fire starts off with finding a body and they initially think its a suicide but soon suspect its a murder. A few more angles get waved into the story and keeps you on the edge of your seat as more complications arise. 




    Characters & Storyline: 4/5
    I enjoyed the development of the main characters in Blood and Fire.




    Ari - Ari is cool & smart as ever. I think she has grown as a character and I enjoyed Ari's development with her feelings and her relationship with Andreas. I would like to see Ari grow more into her powers and really see what she is capable of and I want to know more about her connection with Andreas. Ari is one tough cookie. 




    Andreas - I love Andreas in Blood & Fire. He is a bit more vulnerable but I love how he is when he is with Ari. He is more open and definitely has grown attached to having her around. I am so excited to see where their relationship goes. You do find out a bit about Andreas's past - but I just want more! He is just that interesting and yummy <3 




    Stefan - Stefan wasn't really around much this book :(  I missed the werewolves in this segment.




    Plot, Pace, Writing style: 4/5  
    Ally weaves the various plots/storylines beautifully. She layers them so well and keeps the story flowing at a perfect pace. Since I have been working on my own writing I can see how well put together the Guardian witch series is. Her plots link up perfectly with all her t's crossed and I's dotted. The writing felt a little segmented, the scenes could have been a little bit longer - but I'd rather have it this way than filler information. The main focus for me was on Andreas and Ari and how they grew and work together so well.




    The ending was perfect! I loved it and couldn't have asked for a better one. 




    Final Thoughts: This is one of those series that just gets better and better. I am super excited to read the next book Fire Storm.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I absolutely loved it!  Ari, a fire witch, works with the local Magic Counsel as a Guardian.  She is linked with a human, Ryan, police officer and together they are trying to solve the mysterious death of a celebrity treasure hunter.  Ari's  her Vampire Prince boyfriend, Andreas, is also involved in the investigation, because it happened in the vampire's territory.  Native American artifacts, dark magic witch covens, and an evil ancient vampiress round out the character roll nicely.  The book was very well written and the action kept it moving along.  Once I started it, I breezed through the rest. I now plan on picking up the rest by this fabulous author!

    Blood and Fire was a very enjoyable story. I loved the characte

    Blood and Fire was a very enjoyable story. I loved the characters the author created and the world in which they lived. Ari is a guardian and a witch who is romantically involved with the vampire prince Andreas. Together they have great chemistry and magic to help them protect their people. Ari is working with a human cop named Ryan to investigate the murder of a TV personality looking for some kind of artifact. Not only does Ari need to find the murderer but she needs to figure out what type of artifact was being sought after in order to bring peace to her community. Because she is not the only one looking for this artifact. On top of all that she is involved with Andreas and his battle to figure out why the O-Seven has sent an enforcer to Canada and to put things in place to protect his people. The story has everything a reader needs to keep them interested from the very beginning. All the secondary characters are well developed and play an important role in the story. Ally Shields does a great job with this book. I haven't read any of the first ones in this series and I never had any problems with following the story or characters. I enjoyed this world Ally created and will definitely be looking to read more of her work. Highly recommend!
