Book Two in the Guardians Trilogy
The new Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Stars of Fortune.
To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces…
Mermaid Annika is from the sea, and it is there she must return after her quest to find the stars. New to this world, her purity and beauty are nothing less than breathtaking, along with her graceful athleticism, as her five new friends discovered when they retrieved the fire star.
Now, through space and time, traveler Sawyer King has brought the guardians to the island of Capri, where the water star is hidden. And as he watches Annika in her element, he finds himself drawn to her joyful spirit. But Sawyer knows that if he allows her into his heart, no compass could ever guide him back to solid ground...
And in the darkness, their enemy broods. She lost one star to the guardians, but there is still time for blood to be spilled—the mermaid’s in the water and the traveler’s on the land. For she has forged a dangerous new weapon. Something deadly and unpredictable. Something human.
About the Author:
Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland. She began writing when a blizzard in February 1979 kept her in her hilltop home with a three and six year old for nearly a week of canceled kindergarten and dwindling chocolate supplies.
During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write a story for her own entertainment. From the first page, she knew it was what she was meant to do. Several manuscripts and rejections later, Irish Thoroughbred was published by Silhouette in 1981.
The Liar, published in April 2015 by Putnam, is her 214th book. She hit the NY Times Bestseller list in 1991. Every book since 1999 has made that list.
Recently The New Yorker called her “America’s favorite novelist."
In 1995, she began writing a police procedural series featuring Eve Dallas, a NY homicide cop, and set in the near future under the J.D. Robb pseudonym. Devoted in Death, out in September 2015, is the 41st entry in the series.
Nora Roberts, hands down, knows how to write a paranormal romance series like nobody else.
They are always enthralling, fascinating, completely addicting, and ones you never want to end. Her newest and latest is not an exception.
I wasn't sure how I was going to like this installment, knowing that it would be mostly told from Annika's point of view. Not because I didn't like her, quite the contrary but because of what she was and how that point of view might be because of it. She is super innocent, super sweet and because of it, still naive and learning the world around her. Not your typical heroine in a story filled with darkness and good versus evil.
I was so wrong to be nervous about it. Annika is in fact a strong heroine. One that took me by surprise the more we got to know her and live inside her head the harder is was not to love her. She is one feisty lady that goes after what she wants like a bloodhound and what the girl wants is to keep her friends safe, to find the stars and of course, Sawyer. Poor man, he didn't stand a chance against her and her wily ways.
If there is one thing Nora does right besides the paranormal, is her romances. Always slow to build, burn, and heat up,and ones, once you have opened them and gotten a taste of it, you don't ever want to escape them. Swoon worthy, romantic, and always done right, this story had it all.
I truly was both sad and mad that book three wasn't out yet and I would once again have to wait to see how it all comes together and to get inside the next couples head.
Another hit PNR series from Roberts and one that has already wormed its way into my heart.
