The Guardians: The Girl
by Lola St. Vil

Self Published E-book – February 10, 2012

Emmy - a bookish, witty student - is rescued by six teenaged angels with powers, called Guardians. They've been sent to elicit the secret from her before the demons can. Emmy later learns that her name is the only clue to locating a sought-after bridge that for centuries, Evil has plotted to destroy; this would in turn bring about the end of humanity.

Things get worse when Emmy falls madly in love with Marcus, the well-intentioned but obstinate leader of the Guardians. He eventually confesses that he is in love with her as well. Unfortunately, Marcus has been warned by his clairvoyant and omniscient guide that should he and Emmy get together, the mission will fail and humanity will perish.

Emmy could never have imagined that her world would spin out of control in a single day.  That with the help of the Guardians (six unique angels) she would be the key to saving humanity.  That’s quite a tall order for a mere human girl but Emmy proves she is definitely up to the task.  Of course, falling in love with Marcus (the leader of the Guardians) complicates matters immensely. Especially since Marcus is already taken and his girlfriend, Ameana, would just as soon smite Emmy as look at her. Through epic battles and bouts of forced normalcly Emmy bonds with this band of saviors and realizes an amazing inner strength.  But is that strength enough to let Marcus go?

Marcus is on a mission and is fierce in his single minded determination. That is, until Emmy enters the picture.  He is torn between his feelings and commitment to Ameana and his growing desire for Emmy.  When the seer tells him that any involvement with Emmy will destroy the mission and humanity itself, he is forced to deny his true feelings. His strength is put to the test as he watches this beautiful human reveal her strength and passion.

Ms. Bliss doesn’t normally cover the Young Adult reviews…. but let me tell you I am soooo glad I was asked to read The Guardians: The Girl! Ms. St.Vil puts a refreshing spin on the frequently overused Angel plot as her angels have a “core” or a power based on the way they died. Very ingenious!  The plot is fast paced and well written with just the right balance of action, humor and romance. The characters all have depth and seamlessly draw you into their lives. This is an absolute Must Read!!!
Okay, Ms. St. Vil – We are ready for Book 2!!!
