"The voice is a powerful thing…
Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark.
He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice."
I adored this book! Better than the first, I found myself emerged as if I never left.
The plot of the book follows the first but slightly different. I loved that the plot faced a big obstacle, like communicating. LOL! At times, it was funny cause Russell was doing his darnest just to communicate with her. He knew her yet he could figure out how to speak with her. This plot flows well along with the characters. Both Russell and Annabelle both share a dark past that haunts then both. Yet, they come together strongly facing it together.
As you can tell from my plot description that the love interest is just as good. There are many moments in this book that placed a goofy smile on my face. I loved watching these two characters who have been fighting darkness on their own for so long, rely on each other. It's awesome to see them love each other and even sacrifice the only love they found just to protect each other. Absolutely selfless.
All the characters of the book have grown. The reader even sees the characters from the first book moving on slowly in their life. The author also works in some clues as to who we can look forward to having their adventure. I adore watching each of the guys and ladies, find the one for them.
Awaited is an highly recommended sequel. Faced with more obstacles, the team is getting larger in number as well as in love. They rely on each other and always have each other backs. Awaited is a well constructed story that will blows readers away!
I give it 5 BITES!
