Maddie Pearce is a young girl all alone in the world. Both of her parents were taken away from her
before the age of 19. It leaves her a bit lost and numb as you would expect. Thank goodness for college and good friends. But while hiking by herself on Christmas, Maddie's life is changed forever. She becomes the target of a crazed serial killer, meets an ancient society of healers and gorgeous Guardian named Rayn that draws her like a moth to a flame. Nothing in her life will ever be the same.
This was such a unique and interesting story. I felt like it was a bit rushed in the beginning, trying to get us caught up on her backstory, and Rayn's, but I think that's part of it being a first book in a series. I always say that first books are the hardest to get into because they have to establish the characters, their background story, their histories, etc. But I'm happy to say that once the book got past that and really hit the main story it was really good.
I was worried about Maggie being such a young girl and having never been in a real relationship before, never wanting to be in a real relationship before, and now she was suddenly head over heels for Rayn. But she proved to be very level-headed and it was handled very well. Rayn and his family were unique and fun. I really enjoyed the Sharbabble.
