What I’m Reading… Guardian Series By Meljean Brook

Posted January 28, 2010 by Jen in 5 stars, My Favorite Books, Paranormal Romance, Rating A, Reviews Tags: , ,

So right now I am reading Meljean Brook’s Guardian series. I am currently reading the 3rd book: Demon Night. From Meljean’s website:

Charlie Newcomb worked hard to get her life back together. But all that is shaken when she’s set upon by three vampires desperate to transform her beauty into something evil. Because Charlie is the vital link to something they want—and need. It’s Charlie’s flesh and blood sister, a medical scientist whose knowledge could be invaluable to the predators.

But to get to her, they must first get to Charlie, now under the intimate protection of Ethan McCabe. As her Guardian, Ethan is attracted to her vulnerabilities—as well as her strengths. The closer he gets, the more protecting her becomes not just his duty, but his desire. But will it be enough to save Charlie when the demon night falls?

I just finished the second book in the series: Demon Moon. After a slow start in the first book (and two novellas), the series rapidly picked up with the second book. Now I said I wouldn’t write reviews, but I am going to tell you what I thought of the book!

What I’m Talking About:

Some books are good and make me feel happy (Twilight), some are well written and cause me to feel strong emotions (Time Traveler’s Wife) and some are just so good – they are classics I’ll read over and over (Dune). And many are so fun to read and down-right sexy (Nalini Singh, Gena Showalter, Larissa Ione… I love paranormal romance). For me, this book is all of those in one. I was just blown away.

Colin and Savi are truly a match made in heaven (or Caelum). Meljean has developed two wonderful characters, which individually did nothing for me, but together stirred every emotion within me. I cried tears of sorrow and joy while reading this book. The precise manner in which she detailed their thoughts, feelings and encounters is amazing. And I loved that she didn’t put unnecessary conflict in front of Colin and Savi – no “misunderstandings” to keep them apart. They had to work their way through tough situations and emotions, and it was well worth it!

Although the storyline is second fiddle to the love story (for me), it was also well constructed and planned. I never felt that Meljean wrote in dialogue or actions that did not hold purpose or give life to the story. It is a big book, but there is no fluff. I anxiously await to start the next book. I give Demon Moon 5/5 stars! It is one of my favorites.

ETA: in April I started a new feature called “My Favorite Books” and Demon Moon is definitely one… So I’m adding it in here:
