Sherrilyn Kenyon is one of my favorite authors and I cannot wait to read her next book. However, I do need to point out that B&N has it incorrectly stated as Dark-Hunter Series #22 when in fact it is from the Dream-Hunter Series #5. Even though the two series are kind of interwoven, they are not the same. With that being said, I still cannot wait to read it and look forward to her next in the Dark-Hunter series.

With some Egyptian God in his blood, Seth the Guardian has never lived the life of a deity as he has spent millennia being betrayed as an exile. Over the past several thousand years he has been a tortured slave to the god Noir who assigns him to use any means necessary to obtain from the incarcerated Dream Hunter Solin where the key to Mt Olympus is hidden. To ensure a successful expedited mission is accomplished, Noir the impatient god threatens Seth and others. Hybrid Dream-Hunter Kattagarian Lydia enters the Nether Realm to rescue her father Solin. Instead the Nether Realm's most terrifying Guardian Seth captures her. Expecting nightmarish torture from this vicious miscreant, she is stunned to find instead a tortured soul who has never been loved and expects Lydia to betray him if he displays his attraction to her. The Guardian is a strong Dream-Hunter romantic fantasy that has ties to the rest of the vast Kenyon mythos. Filled with action and pathos, readers will root for Lydia as she falls in love with her worst nightmare (Stockholm syndrome comes to mind), but wonders how to teach a person to accept love when they never received anything positives from relationships. Although the confrontational climax feels abrupt, fans of the saga will relish the love story between a Guardian allegedly with no heart and a Hunter giving him her heart. Harriet Klausner

I just finished this book and am left with my feelings all in a knot. Seth is fabulous! Hot, loyal and childlike at times, I wanted to reach in and save him myself. Lydia was the perfect partner for him, funny, loyal, and loving. I love her books and this one rates right up there with my favorites.

Even after being disappointed with Retribution I can honestly say that I was excited for Guardian. I thought it was going to pick up from the cliffhanger in the last dream-hunter book and just be a real page turner. Unfortunately I was sorely mistaken. We are once again presented with Kenyon's age old formula for a hero: tragic past + alpha male attitude + Adonis like body= **insert any of Kenyon's male characters here** I would liken the story and plot to Upon A Midnight Clear: complete waste of time and adds nothing to the series' overall plot, just brings everything to a halt. The ending was completely half-assed, like Kenyon was tired of writing and just wanted to wrap things up without even explaining how it happens. Additionally ever since Retribution Kenyon has been skimping out on the sex scenes. I don't know why, but it's incredibly annoying. It's a romance series for crying out loud! Though this last book was extremely mediocre, I'll probably still read her future releases since they're my guilty pleasure.

Ms. Kenyon, I did tell you I did not like short stories, didn't I??!!! Well, you proved me to be a LIAR!!!! I LOVE SETH'S STORY!!!! Now, this is the Sherrilyn Kenyon I KNOW!!!! Although it was short, it was COMPLETE!!! Beautifully written!!!! Characters had depth!!!! I had NO QUESTIONS once I completed this book. My only regret was OVER!!! I LOVED LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! I hope you write a story about the twins...Jaden and Jared...I would LOVE to know more about them...they are truly a mystery...and it was nice you gave us another glimpse into their story. Can't wait until your next book!!! Thank you, Ms. Kenyon, for making me change my mind!!!

Can't believe this lady can keep writing so many books with such great style, definately hasn't lost her touch! I totally fell in love with Seth and Lydia was an entirely believeable winning charecter. Did miss some of my fav charecters though, Nick, Savitar, and Simi looking forward to seeing them again in the future books!

One of the things I always enjoyed about SK's books was that they could be read stand alone, or enrichiched by knowing the rest of the series. This wasn't one. Don't get me wrong- it was a good book, but you wouldn't know who half the characters were if you hadn't read previous books. Solin was a little out of character, though the rest seemed to fall in line with previous behaviors. All in all, a good book. Still waiting for Savitar and my darling Thorne's stories.

Watch out because some of the Dream Hunter books have "spoilers" in them but you find out a LOT about some of our favorite Dark Hunters.
