High school sophomore Alex Grabovski is cursed with a gift: the ability to see the goodness and evil in her fellow human beings in the form of halos—rings of light or darkness—that surround the body. Her goals in life are to keep moving, find her best friend, and to remain invisible. A new foster family and new school offer her a real chance at a normal life. But in order to stay, she must accept that her gift, The Gift of the Saints, has been bestowed for a purpose and confront the overwhelming darkness she fears.

Then he appears.

Gabriel is a Seraph, a guardian angel sent in the mortal body of a sixteen-year-old boy to protect Alex at the time in her life when she needs it most. Although he is as old as time, Gabriel’s teenage form reacts to Alex in an unexpected, unprecedented way. He falls hopelessly in love with her.

When their school erupts in violence, Gabriel and Alex realize why the guardian was sent. But can they rise above human emotions to fulfill their destinies, even if it means the outcome will rip their fragile world apart?

The Halo Chronicles: The Guardian is a 2010 RWA Golden Heart® finalist for best young adult fiction.

Thrilling and oh-so-romantic, THE GUARDIAN will keep you up all night, turning the pages! —Kristi Cook, author of HAVEN

About the Author

Originally from California, Carey currently resides four miles from downtown Cincinnati with three badly behaved pets, two delightfully challenging children, and one incredibly supportive soul mate.

Since high school, she’s bummed around Europe, learned Italian, found a job that she loves, and written three novels for teens.

Things that haven’t changed since high school: her love of punk rock and Mohawks; infatuation with John Hughes films; feeling like she doesn’t fit in (unfortunately it doesn’t end with high school) and a love affair with Jane Austen.

Things that have changed since high school: love of roller coasters (not so fun when you get old); having free time; finally knowing what fulfills her as an individual; not caring so much that she doesn’t fit in.
