Guardian by Gillian Joy

Guardian

Headstrong and determined, Hannah always knew that she would become the Guardian. She was the keeper and the protector of all supernatural beings. What she didn't expect was that it would mean she would have to endure the agonising death of her mother first hand as their supernatural connection brings her to her knees, or that it would mean that she could never be with the man she loved.

Blond haired, blue eyed Gabriel was her handsome childhood friend, but would circumstances prevent her from ever being able to explore her true feelings for him?

Jesse, the dark alluring but incorrigible vampire would give anything to be with her, but as the guardian Hannah is forbidden to fall in love with the supernatural.

With her life in turmoil over her conflicting emotions about Gabriel and Jesse and her frustration at being unable to exact revenge for her mother’s horrific death, Hannah flees her life in an attempt to start over. But can we ever really escape from ourselves?

There is no escaping destiny no matter how hard she might try and Hannah must learn to reconcile her commitment to her family with her responsibility as the Guardian and her duty to her heart.

Stars: 5/5
 I loved this book from start to finish. I rarely give out a 5 star review on books. Usually 4 stars for books that I really enjoyed, but this one had me captivated from the beginning! This book is an easy read that can be read in a day. You find all your supernatural characters. Hannah, the main character, is the Guardian to all the supernatural.

The story starts with Hannah as a young girl, while her mother is still the Guardian. She then has to feel the excruciating pain of her mothers death. This leads to her taking her mother's place as Guardian. In doing that she has to leave her childhood best friend. This spands a few hundred years. I am looking forward to book 2!
