It is rapidly dawning on me that I have wasted a huge chunk of my life by refusing to read fantasy novels. And this book is just one example of why.

Eve is a normal seventeen year old girl on her way back from a school skiing holiday in France. Everything is seemingly average until the coach she is travelling on ends up dangling over the edge of a cliff. Two of her teachers rush to help Eve to safety but Eve is confused: why are they so focused on rescuing Eve and no one else on the bus? Things start to get even stranger as her teachers have the ability to hold the bus and stop it from falling and as Eve soon discovers, so does she.

Very quickly she becomes aware the two teachers are called Guardians and that they are there to protect her at all costs. When she returns home it soon becomes apparent that everyone around her is there to protect her. Even her dog, Quinn. Slowly she unravels the mystery and finds out the reason why she needs to be protected and why people are out to get her.

This book hooked me, from the second I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I even read it whilst I ate my breakfast this morning and I ended up trying to put a spoonful of cereal up my nose. I was dubious about starting this book at first because even though I’ve seemingly fallen massively in love with the fantasy genre, I was worried this book would confuse me and leave me back at square one. I needn’t have worried for this book was so engrossing and wrapped it’s large arms tightly around me. Everything was explained perfectly which meant I was able to follow the story extremely easily and do a lot of gasping and swearing when things started happening!

The plot moved at an alarming pace which kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

I'm been having trouble writing this review, it's really hard to find the words to describe how amazing this book is.
This is definitely the best debut I've read this year!

When Eve discovers that the world around her isn't what it seems, she finds herself faced with the task of saving the world,
But surely the girl she sees reflected in the mirror isn't up to the challenge or is she?
With the help of her guardians and other guides can Eve accept what they've bestowed on her!

Three words keep going through my mind, Wow, fantastic and amazing!

Wow sums up the gripping storyline, with its fast pace and action scenes, you find yourself wowing at the combat that's unfolding!
Fantastic is the way to describe the abilities of the characters, the descriptiveness of what they can do means that you can easily visualise their powers in use.
Amazing is the whole package, the storyline, characters and the fact that this is a series and we will be able to read more is truly amazing.

And that brings me to the characters, Holly has given me 4 new guys to dream about:
First we have Seth, the handsome, kind hearted and muscly best friend of Eve.
In my head I pictured Taylor Lautner and in my dreams I swooned!

Lucas the wonderful guardian who is in-tune with Eve and Seth and brings us some wonderfully funny lines.

Then there is the chocolate eyed hero who had me wishing to find him on my bed (notice I said on)
I shall leave it up to you to figure out who I'm talking about!

And finally Eli, oh Eli. The strong willed protective guardian the guy who leaps to the rescue and learns to feel.

Oh wow, (see I said it again) the guys, the story, it has it all.

So I was in need of an epic fantasy novel and I had hear so much chatter about this book on twitter and Jo (@cometbabe) had been telling me to read this book for a while so I had high hopes for this book. I am VERY glad to say that it did not disappoint. I hope this review can do it justice but I very much doubt that.

This book begins with Eve on the way back from a skiing trip in France and she selflessly and heroically helps to save the whole class from dying. She always thought she was an average girl with a great best friend. She then discovers that most of the people she knows, are not people but guardians, pledged to protect her and keep her alive at all costs.

Eve is selfless and brave. Eve being Eve can’t face the thought of them dying to protect her (tbh nor can I). While her guardians are trying to keep her alive she is fighting to keep them alive. Eve is an easy character to like and associate with.

Eve’s best friend is Seth. Oh how much I love Seth. Holly put me through some trying times in this book. There were times when I couldn’t read for fear of what would happen to Seth or any of the guardians.

Eli is the head of Eve’s personal guard. He is a bad boy with a hidden soft centre. He tirelessly fights with over the fact that her guard is there to protect her no matter what, even is it means risking their own lives. Lucas and Quinn are two of my favourite characters in this book.

It shows such skill as a writer for Holly to be able to switch from the swoonworthy 100 proposals to the epic fantasy of The Sentinel. Holly makes every word count in this book. There isn’t a sentence that is just there for the sake of it.
