Product Description

There were things Mace wouldn't be able to protect her from. Unspeakable things. She didn't know how she knew, but she did, just like she'd known on the boat something evil was stirring. The thin that scared her now was a sign that her biggest battle loomed just beyond the horizon. And as long as she remained with the Halflings, the horizon was never more than a blink away.

Publisher's Description


The mission to safeguard Nikki Youngblood depends on the fragile alliance of two half-angel, half-human guardians, both struggling with intense feelings for the girl who has been assigned to their care. Mace, steadfast and deeply in love, wants to protect Nikki at all costs, while Raven’s loyalty to Nikki finds him advocating for her independence and battling his own darker inclinations. At the same time, Nikki finds it harder and harder to choose between the two heavenly beings she may never have.

Dangers intensify, and tensions between Mace and Raven flare as the purpose of their mission becomes clear. Can their defenses hold up to master manipulator Damon Vessler and the powerful secret he holds regarding Nikki’s heritage? Can anyone protect Nikki from her true purpose and destiny?

    This is the second in the series, with two short stories just to add to the excitement. As many ‘middle' books do, this one lags a little after the racing pattern of the first book, but it still left me wanting more at the end. The premise is entertaining, and the story exciting. The Halflings are to protect Nikki, but they become involved with her emotionally, which is a big NO-NO. This book is a little less exciting because it deals with Nikki's, Mace's, and Raven's feelings a great deal, but this is likely to be highly attractive to a teen reader because their feelings mirror that of many teens. If you like exciting novels with a mixture of paranormal combined with teen angst; then, check out this series.

    Guardian is the sequel to Halflings by Heather Burch. It continues the story of Nikki Youngblood and the Halflings (half humans/half angels). It's an exciting teen/young adult paranormal romance novel that follows seventeen year old Nikki, as she and the Halflings fight in a war between good and evil while trying to decide between two amazingly gorgeous Halflings guardians. To better prepare her for what lies ahead, Nikki attempts to improve her fighting skills as well as her skills as a Seer.

    The love triangle between these three takes up a good portion of the book. She seems to feel for them in separate ways. Now granted Nikki has been through a lot recently, with her parents' death, finding out she is a Seer, and having to fight off evil that is somehow drawn to her. I get that her emotions are most likely running on overdrive by now, but it felt like she was playing a game of never ending Ping-Pong regarding her feelings about Mace and Raven. After a certain point, I just wanted her to make a final decision and choose a guy already_preferable Raven (My favorite). I'm a sucker for the "bad" boy types I guess. Raven isn't perfect, but he does not try to be. He uses situations to his advantage, can be a bit of a jerk as well as overconfident when it comes to Nikki, but if she needs him, he is there for her. He understands her. Their similarities and differences help to balance each other out and call me crazy, but I think fit perfectly together.

    Mace and Raven both feel very strongly about Nikki as well and because of this, things become tense between them which make the situation ten times more difficult and uncomfortable for everyone involved. Even though I liked Nikki, there were some moments were I was irritated by her behavior and I questioned some of the choices she made and what her reasoning was for them.

    Apart from that I liked that there was a good amount of suspense and action thrown into the story, it kept things interesting. When I started reading it, I wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. It literally kept me on the edge of my seat. I am definitely buying the third book in this series, Avenger which is slated to be released on March 19, 2013.

    ** I received this ARC from Zondervan via NetGalley in exchange for nothing, but my honest review. Thank you.**

    In this much anticipated follow-up book to Halflings, Nikki's adventures take her and the Halflings across the globe. As they seek to win over evil and learn the plans of their foe, Mace and Raven vie for her attention. Will either one win her heart or will she choose neither one? After over-hearing the Halflings speak about her and the problems she has brought them, she decides to return home to Damon Vessler and continue her martial arts training. Under his direction, she taps into her darker side and now lives for revenge. Is this what she is made for? Will the Halflings be able to convince her of her true calling?

    Heather Burch has once again drawn the reader into the lives of Nikki and the Halflings. I found myself wanting to give Nikki advice and help as I read the book. I love it when the author has the uncanny ability to make me part of the storyline! I can't wait to read the final book of this terrific trilogy.

    I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Zondervan and NetGalley for my honest review.
