5 out of 5 Stars to author Elita Daniels and her novel “Guardian.”
Before I begin, I must say, I absolutely devoured this novel.
Within the very first chapter, Daniels brings us into a world where vampires exist and are treated as second-hand-citizens. The vampire life isn’t glamorous – they have cruel experiments performed on them, they are assigned humans (many of whom are cruel) as a sort of “parole officer” to monitor their every move, and they are forced to take meds that make them ill. I loved the scientific aspects of how vampirism could be spread as an infection, how the government would have their hands in using the disease as a weapon, and how a society’s fear of the unknown would bring out the worst in them. What I loved the most was how Daniel’s created characters that were both terrifying and fascinating. Her vampires aren’t made of fluff – they have intense emotions, they have physical urges, and they are suffering.
If you are a fan of Christopher Pike’s “Thirst” or Scott Westfield’s “Peeps,” then I suggest you check this novel out. It is edgy, raw, and the characters deal with real life situations.
If you want a quick read that isn’t all neat and tidy with a happy ending, then I highly recommend Elita Daniel’s “Guardian.” I cannot wait for her to eventually make a book 2 in the series and truly hope to see more of Anna, Greg, and Leon. The novel has so much potential for a full blown series that has grit and passion, leaving the reader with lasting images and pondering the amazing story world Daniels created.
So, where can you buy this amazing novel, you may ask?
