Overview

Allison La Crosse discovers she has several powers, including a spiritual gift to heal the dying with her touch. With the newfound awareness, she uncovers mind-boggling truths about a world which has been hidden her whole life, thanks to her mother’s selfless actions.

The most important revelation pertains to her ordained place within The Disciples of the Cross as one of their Warriors. This position moves her even closer to her mentor, Brody Kennedy, who ends up being the only other Warrior.

Just as suddenly, it catapults her into the middle of a war between The Sect and The Disciples. Allison’s appointment to Warrior—alongside Brody—exacerbates the leader of The Sect’s malicious hunt for her.

As a result, everything about her existence is altered. With the modification of her life, she prepares to do anything necessary to save everyone loved by her… including Brody and Clark.

    A brilliant read

    I picked Guardians of the Cross after enjoying Warriors of the Cross. That one was an incredible read, fast-paced, packed with action and mysterious characters. I didn’t think the second book could get any better, but it did.

    Twenty-four-year-old Allison stands in the middle of a war between good and evil. As the only person in the world bestowed with the ability to heal those wounded, she is much sought after, but also faces a great peril. Whenever she heals someone, she is bonded to the person and sees visions of events yet to come. In her quest to protect the people she saves and the ones she loves, she must face the one person who almost killed her: Devin slash his twin brother Darryl. Only, Allison’s meant to protect Devin after saving him from a horrible fate in his mother’s womb. And now she’s at a crossroads. How can she save the ones she loves when she’s meant to protect the enemy, who would do anything to hurt her?

    I thought this book was fantastic and couldn’t put it down. The author has introduced a plethora of new elements that kept me glued to my screen. I loved the twists and turns and the spine-chilling thriller parts I didn’t see coming. The ending left me eagerly awaiting the third installment. All in all, this is a must-read, well-written book that I’d recommend to young adult and adult readers.

    Best Paranormal Romance Series

    Guardians of the Cross is the follow up to Warriors of the Cross by T. R. Graves, an epic series of good versus evil that defies placement in any genre. Guardians is full of plot twists and a roller coaster of emotions that will have you unable to put the book down. The paranormal/religous battle between good vs. evil reminds me of the blockbuster movie/book The DaVinci Code. There are secret societies both dedicated to their belief's of good and evil. At the center of the storm, Allison La Crosse has begun to embrace her role as the the Warrior Priestress and her ability to heal the most gravely injuried through the Salvedere. Allison's relationships are also central to the plot. She is bonded to those she has rescued in a way that defies logic. They share emotions, symtoms and sometimes thoughts. Clark the first person, Allison saved in utero, is bonded to her and her most fierce defender. Brody, the Warrior Priest, is Allison's true love and ready to take their relationship into a lifelong commitment. Allison is torn trying to keep everyone happy and safe and follow her heart. She is also trying to prevent prophesies that have foretold of the suffering of those around her.

    Gaurdians further explains the inter-workings of the Disciples of the Cross and begins to explore the prophesies behind their mythology. More history into the lives of Brody, Julia, and James are revealed. There are so many layers to this series it is impossible to explain and put into a category. This second installment explores more of the secrets of the Disciples by revealing Julia's most inner thoughts through her journals and diary. Allison must learn who to trust and rely on without endangering those closest to her heart.

    Devin DeMorte is back as the leader of The Sect after the horrible assualt on Allison at the end of Warriors. Allison believes that Darryl, Devin's deceased twin was forced into Devin's comatose body by his mother Angela's Satanic prayers. As a result, Allison is bonded to Devin from her previous Salvedere to save him. However, Devin is traped and being held mental hostage by Darryl. Darryl has many evil plans to get Allison to bend to his will. He will use or kill anyone who stands in his way, especially those Allison loves.

    This series is a MUST read for anyone who loves paranormal romance. It is fresh and unique and the plot twists will keep you reading long into the night. There is so much going on in these books that they are best read in order.

    Fantastic Sophomore Follow-Up!

    Following on the success of Graves' debut novel, Warriors of the Cross, Guardians picks up without missing a beat as Allison La Crosse is forced to try to put her life back together following the brutal attack that closed Book One of The Warrior Series. Rather than gloss over the disturbing after-effects of such an assault, Graves chooses to boldly explore her main character's feelings with an emphasis on the psychological ramifications that Allison must face. There's not much time for Allison to heal, though, as Daryl and the Sect are ramping up their efforts to ensure the demise of the Warriors of the Cross. Compounding the multiple threats to her life are personal dilemmas including potentially deadly issues with Mallory, Allison's younger sister, and the heartbreaking struggle between Allison and her feelings for both Brody and Clark. Without trying to give too much away, I'll just say that if you enjoyed Book One as much as I did, you will not be disappointed with T.R. Graves' sophomore effort. I can't wait for Book Three!
