- Book 1 of The Guardians
The battle between Good and Evil has raged since the dawn of time, the Guardian Warriors, fighters of strength and power pitting wits against their nemesis, the Rogue Warriors, agents of chaos and deceit. For 700 years, Malakai Gregori Vadim has shouldered the mantle of Guardian, battling the forces of darkness. Yet, a chance encounter on a nightly stroll will forever change Kai's destiny.
After falling into a deep depression following the murder of her fiance, Siobhan Whelan stands perched on the ledge, one step away from ending it all. Alone in her grief, Voni is tormented by horrific nightly terrors plaguing her sleep, leading her away from her joys as a dancer and into the path of darkness and despair. Only the kind voice of a Good Samaritan guides her back to earth and now, she is thrust into a very different world, for this mysterious and handsome stranger is much more than meets the eye.
Surrounded by the heart of San Diego's beautiful scenery, Kai must learn patience as he discovers why this petite beauty has not only captured his heart, but the eyes of Rogue Warriors to boot. With his body eager to claim his newly discovered spiritmate, the one who will ground him in the mortal world once again, he must fight his own nature to draw her out into the light of day, giving her heart reason to trust and to love again.
But his enemy, Dmitrius Konstantin has other plans. For the past year, he has fed on her grief, coming to her through her nightmares as he hopes to push her over the edge, claiming her and her as yet unknown powers for his side. As Kai learns of his foe's deadly interest, he must solve the riddle of Voni's tortured dreams while holding his growing desire for her at bay.
Now, he and his fellow Guardian, Eamon McClearon must venture into the In-Between, the Void that serves as the powerbase for the Rogue Warriors, to save her soul as well as his own.
Will his love be strong enough to save them both?

SPIRIT FALL is the first book in The Guardians series, and we start off with Malakai and Voni. Malakai is an immortal warrior who fights for good. Voni is a dancer, tormented by the death of her fiance. She plans to take her life as she simply cannot take it any longer, but along comes Malakai and literally talks her off the ledge. It turns out that Voni has an ability to be desired, and her depression and nightmares are being done deliberately, to drive her to the Rogue Warriors.
This was a great start to the series, with plenty of information given without it being an info-dump. Kai and Voni are both three-dimensional characters, with plenty going for them. There is also a great supporting character in Eamon, who has his own twist at the end, definitely leaving me wanting more. And how could I forget Roxi and Daphne! I would love to hear more about them!
With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I was able to lose myself in this contemporary world with paranormal characters. The pacing was smooth, and I thoroughly enjoyed how the story moved along. Absolutely recommended by me, and I look forward to continuing with this series.
