(The Guardian Series #2)
Publication date: June 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Maria Del Voscova is a powerful witch with a past. When she’s asked to become a member of the elite Guardians she knows she can’t risk sharing the truth about her messed-up family. But we don’t always get what we want. Sometimes, we don’t always know what we want.
Though Mar absolutely knows she doesn’t want Neeren, King of the Parthen. She alone sees the darkness in him and it reminds her too much of the past. She knows better than to fall for his stoic, tortured soul façade.
She’s training to be a Guardian, a shadow; tasked with keeping the balance between good and evil in the world. It’s what she wants—to be better than her family was.
But the past has a way of catching up to Mar and the future has a morbid sense of humor. On her first mission, she’s kidnapped by the enemy she’s been running from her entire life. Thankfully the guardians look after their own. As it turns out, so does Neeren.
As Mar finds herself caught between the past and the future; between blood and bond; between the light and the dark, she realizes her only chance at surviving may be in trusting a man who is the most dangerous of them all.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Magic Born is book 2 of The Guardian series.
This is not a standalone read, you really need to have read book 1 which is Fire Born. So to give you a bit of context book 1 is centered around Alex and Collum her love interest. There is a lot of important background information and you get to meet pretty much the core group of characters there.
You really need to read Book 1 Fire Born!
Trust me, it is really good and I do not want you to miss out on a great read!
In Fire Born, we get to know Alex, Collum, Quinn, Mar, Nereen and few others. So here, in Magic Born, you pretty much continue on with the same posse!
We do get introduced to a few more of course…
Alex and Mar (who is a very powerful witch) are besties, and well there is that bit of attraction going on with Nereen (Alex’s brother).
Mar has spunk, she is feisty, quick-witted, funny… hell the whole darn package and well how is Nereen meant to resist?
So definitely my kinda character…
I love my ass kicking heroines!
Can you blame me?
You could see the whole attraction coming in book 1 and well now… we get to live it!
It is fun!!
I really enjoyed the writing because both books are very fast paced, and really well written. You got your action sequences, fantastic dialogs, snark everywhere… heck you know me… I was a happy girl!
We get a few twists and surprises, I think there is a part of me that is still a tad confused about that big bad and the final battle, but I would expect it to be explained in Book 3. At the end of Book 3, we already know that the story will center this time around Quinn!
If you like Paranormal novels, then you are going to be hooked with this series.
I am going to very highly recommend it, and remember that you want to start the series from book 1. I wonder when we will get Book 3 because honestly, I cannot wait and I would love to see more of these characters.
So when do we get book 3?
