The Guardian (The Oracle Series, Vol. 5)The Guardian by Cynthia D. Witherspoon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review.*

Let me just say that I love this story. I mean, when I was finished, I had the biggest, cheesiest smile on my face. I have totally fallen in love with this series. I think it's because of the feeling feels I get when I read these stories. Yea, they're paranormal/mystical/fantasy stories but really what's a story without emotions? How else would you relate to these characters? It's just SO good!! So, let's get into this story. The Guardian is vol.5 of this series and in it Eva's recovering from her latest ordeal with Elliot. Things aren't really helpful when he tries to kill her in her dreams. So, with the advice from Papa Apollo, she's whisked away to The Academy. There, she learns from Hecate & Medusa how to defeat her greatest enemy. It isn't Elliot, either.

And if that's not enough, this book has a few revelations for Eva. Which helped in defining Eva as The Sybil. I know she's been The Sybil but it's different. She's now in control over herself. You know that saying, You are the only one responsible for your happiness? That is so on point when it comes to Eva.
As for the characters, love. He is such a swoon-worthy male lead. Cyrus is Eva's ROCK. The one person who remains ever present in her life. And it's not just one sided, it goes both ways in them needing each other. We got to meet Hecate & Medusa. You know, not all monsters are bad. Honestly, if it hadn't been for Medusa, Eva wouldn't have been able to 'grow'. Hecate, was very poised, elegant, and helpful. I guess being the Headmistress of The Academy one would have to be. Zeus, Hera, Hermes, & Apollo all come, along with other Gods/Goddesses, to congratulate her on her new role, being a representative to ALL the Gods of Olympus, not just for Apollo. That's a lot to take on & I really want to see how she handles that in the future. You'd think this book ends well with a goodnight're wrong. Possibly DEAD wrong. Elliot. Elliot. Elliot. How I have such a strong dislike for you, so much!! There's a lesson there. Elliot is full of hate and you can see how it's destroyed him. It's like with Eva, if she had not taken her hate for Elliot and honed it in, then more than likely she'd REALLY be dead.
Let me wrap this up. The Guardian isn't to be missed. It's full of revelations and some much needed self discovery. I love Eva and I love her story. I have put a lot of thought and emotion into this series and am anxious to see where it's headed!!

Jack Smith was thinking, I am the luckiest man alive. Sitting at a white-linen-covered table on the sidewalk outside of his favorite restaurant, he gazed at the perfect face of his mistress of nine months. This place was their place. They’d spent a rare night together, and in the early morning they were having a leisurely breakfast, enjoying the perfect weather of late May in New York.
“What do you have to do this weekend?” Jack asked, knowing this could be a dangerous topic. Sandra was sipping her coffee, hea…

#BlogTour: STORMING THE CASTLE by Arianna Hart

About the Book

Sam Castleton has fame, houses all over the world, and one really big problem—he’s got an album due and he can’t write. All he wants is a quiet place to get his head straight. Dale, Georgia, seems like the perfect quiet spot to try to hear the music again and get some lyrics down on paper.

With her daughter’s paternal grandparents making a sudden appearance and the difficulties of running her own lodge and being a single mom, Faith Adams doesn’t have the time to worry about the mysterious stranger staying in one of her cottages, no matter how sexy he is.
Her newest guest may be surly, but his money is good, so she’s willing to overlook his surly nature. If only she could ignore the way he awakens a searing hunger in her...

Faith finally gave up trying to sleep at five in the morning. She’d tossed and turned all night, reliving the kiss and imagining what she could have done differently. 

The pull of attraction had been there through the whole meal, but she’d thought s…
