Overview

Experience the danger and desire of a secret race of vampire warriors—and the powerful women they are sworn to protect…

IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE

By night, the winged warrior Antony Medichi fights the death vampires who threaten his world. By day, he hunts the rogue vampires who invade Mortal Earth. But deep in his heart rages the fiercest battle of all—his soul-searing passion for the one mortal he is sworn to protect…the one woman he is doomed to love.

ON THE WINGS OF FIRE

Parisa Lovejoy is so beautiful, and so powerful, that Antony cannot fight the feelings she arouses. But his unexpected love only intensifies his strength as her Guardian—a strength that is put to the ultimate test when Parisa is abducted. Her captor, Commander Greaves, enslaves mortal women for their blood. If Parisa hopes to survive—and ascend—she must forge an even deeper bond with Antony…in the flames of eternity.

“Sexy, cool, edgy romantic fantasy…Prepare to be enthralled.”

—Lara Adrian on Ascension

    Just OK, not as good as the first two in the series. I just couldn't warm up to Parisa. She did nothing but whine and complain during the first half of the book and the second half wasn't much better. She kept having "epiphanies" and was going to change, but then went right back to whining and complaining. I really wanted to like her cause I loved Medichi in the first two books. Parisa was like watching a ping pong game going back and forth. First she's complaining how she doesn't want anything to do with the vampire life, then she's all about becoming a warrior. Then she wants Antony, but doesn't want him and sleeps in the guest room. It was like watching a schizophrenic argue with herself. Yes, No, Maybe, I Don't Know... and then starting all over again.

    In some places, the storyline seemed to drag, too much whining from Parisa and not enough actual story. The battle sequence was kind of anti climatic to me. Out of the blue, there's suddenly this big battle that's supposed to decide everything (in the Grand Canyon of all places), then it's over, and everything goes back to how it was. No real changes, just a lot of people dead. And why is it Luken who always seems to get demolished? I wonder sometimes if he will survive to make it to his own breh-hedden story.

    It seemed to take forever to get through this book. I finished it just so I could move on to the next in the series. I'm hoping that Jean-Pierre and Fiona's story will be better.

    The latest Guardians of Ascension vampire romantic thriller is a terrific tale

    Three months ago the winged Warrior of the Blood Antony Medichi lost his woman who was abducted. He knows she is special as he is her Guardian of Ascension who failed to protect her. Antony realizes his beloved breh haden soul mate Parisa Lovejoy is an anomaly with her beauty, intelligence and power. He vows to find and rescue her from the malevolent Roth, agent of even more evil Commander Greaves.

    Antony also continues to hunt down the invading death vampires and other rogue vampires who harm Earth. Meanwhile death vampire Commander Greaves, who kidnaps female mortals to drink their blood, vampire knows his latest captive Parisa is special due to her voyeur skills. Her only hope for salvation and saving other blood slaves resides with Antony if she accepts her Guardian as her eternal soul mate.

    The latest Guardians of Ascension vampire romantic thriller (see The Burning Skies and Ascension) is a terrific tale as Caris Roane provides more insight into the divided vampire culture though the actions and reactions of the cast. The three prime characters make a delightful paranormal triangle as the death vampire plans to drink the blood of the Ascension whose soul mate is coming in an enjoyable urban fantasy.

    Awesome!

    Great series! The chemistyr between Parisa and Warrior Medichi is hot, hot and extremely hot! I did get irritated with Parisa's personal issues. I felt they were too weak and drugged out too long, in comparsion to others. Looking forward to the stories of the other Warriors and the story of Fiona and Warrior Jean-Pierre.

    BOOK 6:THE LOST TRIBES PART 2

    At the rainforest, it was Clay's dream of everything to eat, but right now, he didn't feel very hungry at all. Jambu came up to Glory, smiling with glee, but his face fell when he saw Deathbringer. "Uh...don't worry! I'll get him to the healers!" See, they had been gone from the rainforest in the first place to work on the Jade Mountain School, but now, he didn't think they'd be working on it ANYTIME soon. He thought badly for the dead Fatespeaker on the cliff-she had tried everything for them...Clay should've been in Fatespeaker's place. That reminded him of his limp while he walked...it all came back, the endless pain, the snakebite, saving Sunny, Starflight, and Fatespeaker, and then...Peril. She had saved his and his friends lives 2 times...well, not really..."Get out of DREAM-MODE CLAY! We gotta get going here," Glory woke him up from his daydreaming. He followed her, still wincing from the limp and they flew into the sky. It looked as if it was about to rain...the clouds were all black."Wait...guys, you could stay here for shelter!" Jambu flew in front of them. "We've got an important thing to do!" Glory told him,"SAVE OUR FRIENDS!" Jambu winced and then he had concerned and worried colors on his scales. "Guys...just to warn you...there's a big storm coming that way...it may slow you down...but good luck." Clay felt bad for Jambu that...well, he didn't want to accuse Glory of doing anything either. The clouds got darker as Clay and Glory squinted through the mist and flew ahead. Suddenly, lightning flashed as Clay pushed Glory out of the way to avoid getting hit. Uh-oh! He saw Glory's wings flailing as she fell toward the ground and Clay's wings felt heavy as he dove foward...too late. Then everything blacked out. Clay woke up to be in a rocky wasteland. He groaned as he felt a slight bruise on his arm. Glory didn't have any injuries...or did she? But she had a large cut on her wing...this wasn't good. He looked around. All there was was abandoned landscape. He wished he had Starflight so he could...oh. He remembered his blindness. Well luckily, with his fire-proof scales, he had flew him to safety beforr getting totally burned. Then suddenly, someone tapped him on the shoulder. It was an unusual dragon, not a Nightwing, or any parts of dragons, like Sunny. "Hi, I am Jambaro," he said,"I am an Ironwing."
