Publisher’s Description: In the Shadow World, he was the God of Death, and he was called many names. The monsters he hunted called him Anubis. Those who saw his face died. To Guardian Security, he was a number, a surgical weapon they wielded against monstrous evil. One woman called him Kaeden Lang. Anubis never meant her to be anything except an interlude, a moment of light in the darkness of his life, a one-time escape from the ever-present haze of death. He committed an unforgivable sin—he saw her again—and again—and again. She held back the shadows that threatened to consume him.
Sky Meyers made a grave mistake six years ago. She fell in love—only to have the man she knew as Kaeden Lang disappear. Now, his daughter needed him to save her life. As the office manager for the State District Attorney, Sky accessed national databases in a desperate search for her baby’s daddy only to discover the man she knew as Kaeden Lang didn’t exist. She’d already lost the man she loved; she couldn’t lose her daughter.
Other eyes noticed Sky’s search. Abruptly recalled and informed of the existence of his daughter and her illness, Anubis slipped through the shadows to help Sky—but found death threatened more than his daughter. In her attempt to find Kaeden Lang, Sky unknowingly jeopardized his Shadow World existence by alerting an enemy Kaeden Lang can’t eliminate–only Anubis can.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In some cases…spoilers. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says..
This is a romance – my favorite kind – one with a happy ending. There is sex involved and some swearing. There are assassins involved, but they play for the good guy side. There isn’t any graphic death – not like a horror story might have, but there is a couple of dead people involved.
I really love the Kings of Guardian series. If I had to choose, my favorite to date is Jewell and here is that review. However, we are on Anubis right now. This is another series that author Kris Michaels is writing. It’s called Guardians of the Shadow World.
This series has recurring characters which is the part of the series I like. Even after their story is done, the characters pop up in other stories. It’s like being part of a family. I get to see them joke and tease as well as watch their progression with the family and their position within the Guardian world.
I know the concept of having assassins on the payroll might be tough to think about in real life and it might be hard to reconcile taking the life of someone else because of their penchant to kill and destroy lives. I get that. However, I am sure there really are people that have this job to make our lives less frightening. With that being said, I do not have a problem with the Shadow World of Guardian. In a perfect world, karma or whatever you want to call it -would punish those that do atrocities to other innocents just because they can. We all know there is no such thing as a perfect world.
Anubis is Guardian Security’s asset and he kills with poison. He is not an up close and personal killer. I could do research and see what that means psychologically, but that would be going too far and besides, I don’t really want to know. This is a suspenseful story and I loved it just the way it is.
Everyone deserves happiness and this was an incredible story of a ray of sunshine perminating a life lived in the shadows. It was a story about a path that was set in stone suddenly having a fork in the road that may lead to a better life.
The heroine was not whiny. She was a strong lady and she didn’t make stupid choices. She did what needed to be done and did not hesitate to face problems head on. I think Sky was the toughest woman have met in a story.
The hero, suffice it to say, was struggling with himself. The things he’d done and the danger he would bring to the doorstep of the people he loved. It was a battle that ranged from the “right thing to do” and the “right thing I want to do”. He was rather between a rock and a hard place. I loved the way it all turned out. 5 stars.
