Forever by Gillian Joy

Forever (Guardian, #2)

Book two in the Guardian series.

Hannah’s life has never been easy, despite her strong willed determination and her extra “gifts”, it's still always been hard work keeping an entire world full of the supernatural under control, but having achieved a small semblance of control over most of the custas, Hannah was hoping to be able to slip back into her life of normalcy. Wishful thinking when you're the guardian of all supernatural.
With all the issues she’d had to endure in her past, she'd never had to worry about the mermaids before, so why would they choose now to suddenly start haunting her dreams and her life. Then there are the fairies to contend with as well, just when she manages to get one aspect of the crudelitas under control, the others decide it’s time to start causing problems.

All Hannah wants is some quiet family time and a chance to reflect on her feelings for Gabriel but instead she's thrown back into the thick of the supernatural world, and this time it threatens to invade the quiet family life she has worked so hard to establish. There's no running away this time, she has to front the challenges head on, but forever can be a long time if you can't be with the one you love.

At only 150 pages this book is a quick, but fantastic read. I loved it! I believe I like this book even more than the first one. It's more at a slower pace, keeps in current time so it doesn't feel like you may have missed out on something (although I LOVED the first book too!!!). The characters are more developed in this book, as well.
The setting for Forever is mainly in Australia, where Hannah calls home. That was a nice a change from being in the US (maybe because I really really want to take a vacation to Australia...hmm...I'd even move there if I could!).
In Forever, Hannah's life is getting stressful. She is having nightmares of drowning and the mermaids are asking her to come with them, although they willnot tell her why. In addition to the mermaids she is having problems with fairies. Trying to keep everything under control, and the supernatural life away from her children, things become difficult.
I cannot wait for book 3 to come out!
