Overview

Love will give them strength—or prove to be their fatal flaw.

Guardians of the Light, Book 1

Dara Khan Androcles is really in over her head this time. From childhood she’s been forced to hide her half-dragon mage fighting skills behind a public persona as a healer. Now, with a traitor and his demon threatening the throne of Safehold, Dara has no choice but to turn reluctant warrior—and seek help.

She strikes a bargain with runaway Elven prince Loren ta Cedric and his sentient, pain-in-the-butt war mare, Hani’ena. Loren’s not only too handsome for Dara’s own good, the powerful empath can see right through to the pain that drives her.

Loren can’t help but feel Dara’s every hurt, physical and emotional. Though his need for her drives him half mad, he must stay his course to see justice done for his people. Even if it means swearing a Life Debt to the distracting mortal.

That vow, made in the heat of their parallel quests, carries more power than either of them guessed. The power to bond the unlikely pair as Life Mates. The power to lay bare the fears and desires that could bind them to a single purpose—or tear them apart.

All the while a demon awaits, ready to destroy all that they hold dear.

    LOVE IT!

    This is a great book. Very fantasy romance. The battle of Good v. Evil at its best.

    Loved it!

    I would have given it 5 stars, but I had a problem with the ending. Don't get me wrong, the story unfolded beautifully, but the last 100 nook pages could have been summed up in a simple sentence: "And they all lived happily ever after!" That said, many of you may enjoy all the details.

    It's a good fantasy romance set in a really cool world.

    more from this reviewer

    I Also Recommend:

    Will two people find a way past their obstacles to achieve their final goals?

    Dara, suffering from the loss of her only family, does not expect to find her answers in the wounded fey while Loren, seeking only justice and freedom does not expect a life-debt to get out of control. These two people whirled together by a power hungry, demon possessed monster, do not expect to find answers in each other but that is exactly what they get. It is only together that they discover and come to accept their real destinies. The power of love and life-mate may be more than either of these individuals expected, but will it be enough to hold them together in the end? I recommend this book for all those who believe in love and magic. Not for the feint of heart!

    Pretty good

    I thought this story was pretty good. It would get more like a 3.5 rating from me though.
