Declan is a sorcerer who has been forced to work for the Seraphim and has been told to pick up a man and deliver him to the Seraphim_. However when he gets there he is in for a couple surprises. One the “man” he was sent to pick up is actually a teenager and two he is protected by Ana, the lost vampire love of Declan. Also the teen is the fifth in the Seventh Mark. These are a group of seven who will grow and turn to either the light or dark and could possibly start an Apocalypse. When Declan decides to protect the teen instead of bringing him in and he brings in others to protect the teen they go looking for Samael, demon lord, who is looking for someone himself… The Teenager.
Ana is a tough vampire and not only feels that taking care of the teen is a order she must obey but her maternal instincts have come out and she sees what she will never have in the boy. Declan is a strong sorcerer but he lost his heart to Ana and where she is concerned nothing else matters.
This is the 1st in the League of Guardians series. There is everything in this book, sorcerers, vampires, shape-shifters, ghouls, etc. It is what every paranormal reader would enjoy but in all honesty I thought this was the first book by this author and was surprised there had even been other series’ by Juliana Stone. It is written a little rough and simplistic but that being said I wanted to know how it ended. I wanted to get back to reading it when I could. If you are not into these type of books this will not be one that would persuade you to change your mind. But certainly one you should pick up if you are into paranormal books.
