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, Cyrus...my 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 kiss...you'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!!

Damaged!: A Walker Brothers Novel: (The Walker Brothers Book 3) by J.S. ScottThe final book of the Walker Brothers Trilogy!!!

What happens when your entire future is destroyed in moments?


Dane

My
name is Dane Walker, and I'm entirely, irrevocably damaged. I lost my
whole life in the plane crash that killed my father and left me scarred,
both physically and emotionally, barely clinging to life in a hospital
as the sole survivor of the accident.. I wasn't fit to function in the
city, so I moved to my own private island in the Bahamas to lick my
wounds alone.

I'd spent my adult life building up my solitary existence on Walker's Cay.

I was fine with being by myself.

I was resigned to my fate.

But then I met her.

My brothers sent her; I wanted to send her away.

But...I couldn't.

Something
about Kenzie Jordan reminds me of myself. She's broken just like me. I
want to save her from whatever secrets she's hiding. She was handed a
pretty raw deal in lif…
