Book Description

3 May 2012 Dark-Hunter World (Book 21)

As a Dream-Hunter, Lydia has been charged with the most sacred and dangerous of missions. She's to descend into the Nether Realm and find the missing god of dreams before he betrays secrets that could kill all of them. What she never expects is to be taken prisoner by the Realm's most vicious guardian.

Seth's time is running out. If he can't hand over the entrance to Olympus, then his own life and those of his people will be forfeit. No matter the torture, he hasn't been able to break the god in his custody. But when a rescuer appears, he decides to try a new tactic. If he can win her to their cause, then he can save all their lives.

When these two lock wills, one of them must give. Lydia isn't just guarding the gates of Olympus, she's holding back the darkest of powers from the earth itself. If she fails, an ancient evil will roam the earth once more and no one will be safe. But evil is always seductive . . .

Watching Seth and Lydia bond in hell, learn to trust each other and let down their barriers led to a very satisfying and well-deserved HEA. Books like THE GUARDIAN are why I read romance (Australian Romance Readers Association)

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Love It!! 22 Dec 2011
By Ronkira
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading Retribution I was all for giving up on the Dark Hunter world. Thank god I didnt! The Guardian was down right brilliant.

I dont think there was a character in this story I didnt like. Not in a "good vs evil" way. You know sometimes you can read a story and think "oh the heroine was a bit whiny" or "the hero was a sap." Well, with The Guardian there was none of that for me. The plot and sub plots kept me so enthralled I had a hard job putting the book down.

There were some new and old friends in this story which brought a big smile to my face. Would loved to have seen Zarek and Seth up against Noir, that would have been a good fight. There was a hint of payback agreed between Zarek and Solin, so you never know there maybe something in the works to bring them all back again together again.

I do agree the ending was a little rushed and would have loved a chapter or two more, but then I am greedy and when I get into a book I love, I just want more.

I smiled, cried and laughed in all the right places.

Just hope the next in the series is just as good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Dark-Hunter cracker 13 Oct 2013
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Another deeply scarred hero takes the lead in the Dark-Hunter world. Seth has been imprisoned for centuries. The unacknowledged son of the Egyptian God Set, he was abandoned by his mother and sold into servitude to the primal God Noir. Drained of his powers and tortured in every way imaginable, Seth will do practically anything to ensure even a brief reprieve of freedom from his circumstances. He is tasked to torture Solin; who he managed to capture in his dreams, and in turn tortures him in the hopes of locating the mysterious key that Noir wants.

Solin is saying nothing, yet his worst nightmares come true when Dream-Hunter Lydia ventures into Hell to rescue him. When she is caught by Seth, he quickly learns she is Solin's weakness and exploits her to force Solin into getting the key. Yet Seth is quickly taken by Lydia, and risks eternal abuse to keep her safe. Yet as they fall in love, Seth realises just how special Lydia is, and vows to keep her safe at all costs, even if he has to kill her.

Expect the levels of passion and action this author normally produces. Seth is a truly moving character, and Lydia, with her shared experiences, is the first person to prove he is worthy of love. Their individual tales are heartbreaking, but the actions each take to try to safe guard the safety of the other will shatter your heart further. No one writes the kind of tortured heroes SK does, and I love every one of them.
