Imagine trying to go to school and work and live a normal life, when at a moment's notice (or vision's notice) you have to drop everything and run off to save a complete stranger. That is the life of Cassandra ever since she she was 16 and found out she was a Guardian. Demons roam the earth, causing innocent victims to die in horrible accidents and sending their souls to be enslaved in Hell. Guardians have visions of the accidents just before they happen, allowing them the chance to save the victim. Cassie is doing her best to live her life and perform her duties as a Guardian until the game changes. She is now the target and Hell wants her badly.
Who can she trust? Well, apparently no one. It seems at every turn Cassie is finding out people are hiding something from her or just out right lying to her. Hunter and Caleb enter her life at the same time and they both want her, but neither are what they seem. Her room mate and best friend, Nora, has her own secret agenda and even Cassie's own mom seems to be keeping secrets. Every time another piece of the puzzle is revealed, I wanted to scream right along with her. Seems everyone thinks they know whats best for Cassie and it always involves hiding the truth from her. How are you supposed to fight for your life when no one will give you the answers you need? Cassie is determined to get her answers, even if it means giving up her life.
I do wish there had been a little more relationship building between Cassie and Hunter. Towards the end, Cassie finds out Hunter has been keeping a secret from her and she lashes out out him and hates him for it. While I understand her anger, I thought her reaction was over the top. Every one has been lying to her and she forgives them all and moves on. However she can't forgive Hunter, when he has done nothing but try to protect her and save her life and the lives of her mom and best friend?
The ending sets things up nicely for the next book. I look forward to reading how she plans to find her father and what she will do about Hunter.

Guardians of Fate is a seriously addicting page-turner of a story and should not be overlooked!
The story is exciting, the characters are witty and charming and let's not forget... down right sexy! GOF will keep you on the edge of your seat, waiting with anticipation to see what happens next.
The building tension and romance that ensues from Cassandra and another extremely HOT man (that shall remain nameless) will leave you breathless and wanting more (if I could bring him home and keep him for myself...he'd be all MINE!)
The ending will have you begging for the next book in this exciting new series.
If you love Paranormal Romance/Fantasy novels-- I highly recommend Guardians of Fate!! I hope you'll love it as much as I did!!!
