One day on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had �ber quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial.

"Hello."

"Boss, is that you?"

"Why yes A. M., who else would be answering my phone?"

"Er... right. Well, I'm calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate because I quit."

A. M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband.

"Hi hubs, can you pick me up at Starbucks?"

"Sure hon... having some car trouble?"

"Not at all. I need a ride because I just quit my job."

"You WHAT?!"

"It's time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist."

So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a young adult paranormal romance author of self-published ebooks.

Well, it didn't happen exactly like that. The real story is that after years as a successful sales manager in the world of pharmaceuticals, her company was gobbled up by a larger one and her career came to a screeching halt. Always one to look at the glass as being half full, she took the job loss as an opportunity to forge down the path of her life-long dream-- that of becoming a writer. Her series, The Guardians of Vesturon, centers around a family of six siblings and is a mix of humor, mystery, suspense and of course, love. Survival, Resurrection and Determinant are the full length novels and Beginnings is the prequel novella. While Determinant is the 3rd book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone novel.

This book starts out right at the cliffhanger that Survivor book one ended at. Maddie hurt and broken trying to decide between her parents and Rayn. This is a book fraught with emotional turmoil, and danger. Each character goes through major growth and changes in this book. Maddie finds out so much about herself through out this book she goes through growth and change, finds out an interesting mystery about her family tree, and pushes herself physically and mentally during the whole of this book. There is a lot more action going on in this book than in the first more plot twists, and more characters to meet and interact with. I really enjoyed this book and getting to know the characters more in-depth. If you enjoyed Survivor you will really enjoy the sequel Resurrection, I highly recommend that you pick up this book and read it. The Author's writing style is more put together and she's doing more showing than telling this time around, which is great I'd rather have the words used to paint a picture for me than a manual. This was a free book given to me by the author for a fair review. Thank's for the book I really enjoyed it.

This story picks up from the monster of a cliff-hanger from the first book. I couldn't wait to pick it up and see where these characters would go. I was pleased to watch them grow and change. It was fun to watch. Maggie goes from a clumsy walking disaster (but a nice one!) to woman who can take care of herself. It was sad to watch her do it alone, but like most things in life it was necessary. She needed to take charge of her life and grow up, and it was really nice to see. The funny moments had me laughing out loud, and the sad moments had me tearing up. It was heart-breaking in places. It was great to feel so connected to the characters that you can feel their sorrow leaping off the page. It was well done. I can't wait to see where the series goes from here.

These books just keep getting better! I'm in love with these characters and the story just has me hooked and leaves me wanting to continue on reading the rest of the books! I wonder how it would be as a movie?!

A.M. Hargrove has written another gem. There is a lot more going on in Resurrection, the second book in the Guardians of Vesturon series. The characters have matured and the focus is not only on Maddie and Ryan. You get to learn more about the planet Vesturon, described in rich detail. A superb read, fast-paced, with sub-plots that combine well and a flowing story line. If you are looking for a solid adventure and lots of action, look no further. I am anxiously hoping for the third book in the series and wish to read more about the stories behind Rayn's family.

Resurrection, the continuing saga of Survival continues with Maddie and Rayn's journey into a new life in a new world together. I am impressed with the author's development of the story and the way the characters all came together to make for a fun and interesting read.

After I finished Survival, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. And it was SO worth it. This book was freaking awesome. It made me want to visit Vesturon! I loved the way the book turned down a different path than what I thought. Without giving anything away, Maddie is surprising in this one. She matures and turns out to be a young woman with unexpected strength totally able to take care of herself. I can't say much more than that, but the story is just awesome. You must read this!!! The writing is great and there is conflict that surprises the reader. Can I just say go buy this book today? You won't regret it. What a bargain to get two great books--Survival (FREE!!!!) and Resurrection--for only 2.99!!!! I can't wait for Hargrove's next book!!!!

What a great follow up to Survival! Again, I couldn't tear myself away from Maddie and Rayn. It was great to witness Maddie's triumph in her trials. The entire group of Rayn's siblings intrigues me and I can't wait for the next book in the series. I hope that they each eventually get their stories told. I'm especially looking forward to Shar's, she's hilarious! Awesome, fast paced with lots of action that kept my interest. As in the first book, the characters were strongly written. I must say it was also great to read a book that is written the way these are. I like that the author doesn't "dumb things down" for lack of a better way to put it. There were lessons to be learned through the experiences of Maddie and Rayn. However, the writing style is such that you don't realize the moral side of things until you complete the book and reflect on what you've read. I would recommend this series to anyone who is looking for an adventure with intelligent, charasmatic characters. HUGE thank you to Ms. Hargrove for sharing her work!!

So much more could be done with this one, but otherwise a really good read. Clean, no sex (mostly hinted at) language is "light" nothing I'd call nasty. I would recommend this book for teens also, 13-18. Good work.
