Customer Reviews

I love this series of paranormal reads.
TeensReadToo
It has everything, excitement, adventure, suspense, and just enough romance to keep things going at a pretty fast pace and still be intriguing.
Hillary Cairoli
Ending... Not what you expect or hoped for, but surprising and awesome!

Format: Paperback
This is the third book in the Dark Guardian Trilogy though I'm hoping Daniel will have his own book ;) This time it is Brittany that's going through her first transformation and because she hasn't found a mate yet she's going through it alone. Something unprecedented and just 'not done.' Brittany won't hear of it though. She's spent her entire life training, practicing and dreaming of being a Dark Guardian. Then something happens that changes Brittany's entire world. The moon rises and she remains human.

This was the best book of the series. I didn't like Brittany in the other books because she was so standoffish. When Lindsay and Conner were talking in the last book about not feeling a 'connection' to Brittany I had an inkling of what was going to happen and figured it out. Seeing the world through Brittany's eyes though made me realize that she herself was aware that she never had that 'bond' with the other Sherpas and always had felt like an outsider. It hurt reading about her first full moon. I can't even imagine growing up believing with everything that you are that you are a wolf and then having all your hopes and dreams dashed because of genetics. I felt for Brittany and howled (both of us with human throats) with her at the injustice. I would have raged, screamed and killed my mother. Brittany... ah I can't tell you what happened, but I can say she is definitely a wolf with killer roundhouses.

The plot was a little deeper than the last two books but the entire trilogy is very very easy to read and digest without thinking too much. Rachel Hawthorne has made werewolves... excuse me shifters believable and accessible. Great YA!

This was an excellently written series. I read a lot of "teen novels" and there are not many to be desired for. This one has a good story and I HOPE that the author continues the series. They are all obtusely different in their own way and continue the story of each character in each novel. These were so intriguing to my mind, I passed them on to my mother whom enjoyed them as well. Good show!

Format: Paperback
In this book Hawthorne introduces the secretive, Connor obsessed Brittany as our heroine. Once again the back cover indulged too much information!!! There is not by any means a sufficient amount of intrigue and mystery within these books that would warrant such candid excerpts from the author. It would be nice to wonder what her secret might be (despite the fact that it's painfully obvious) without just outright telling me before I've made a solid choice to read the book.

Brittany's mother is a shape shifter but she doesn't know her father. To the other shape shifters Brittany has always felt a little off. It doesn't really take a genius to figure this one out but like I said the author tells you up front. So, basically, the only thing left for you to wonder about is whether or not Connor will accept her after he learns she can't transform (hmmm... I wonder).

Oh, and of course, Connor and Brittany must have a face off with the humans who are bound and determined to prove they exist.... again! I'll admit the book isn't very imaginative. It's simply the first two books told in a different way but once again I still enjoyed it... not a lot but, it flowed well and it didn't irritate me to death, LOL.

Brittany 's the only girl to face her transformation alone in centuries, since she failed to attract her soul mate. In reality, she did choose. He just happens to be taken.

The elders tried to play matchmaker, but that didn't work. She won't submit to transforming with someone she doesn't love.

Stubbornly, she sets off alone preparing for a night of horrible pain...that never quite happens. She doesn't transform.

She doesn't know what to do or who to tell. It rocks her world and will change her future. While she's still reeling from the shock, she's captured by the group wanting to prove to the world that werewolves exist. They also capture Connor - the one she loves.

They can tell by her blood she's human and that Connor isn't. She'll do almost anything to keep Connor alive - but will he hate her for it?

I love this series of paranormal reads. They're romantic with a dash of danger and strong bonds of friendship and family.

This is one of my new favorite werewolve series! It has everything, excitement, adventure, suspense, and just enough romance to keep things going at a pretty fast pace and still be intriguing. It's not a very long book which normally bugs me but it really packs a good story in there in a short amount of pages. When I first read the description on the back of the book, I thought the book didn't look very interesting so I passed it up for purchase, well just recently I decided to give the series a try because I've read all of the other werewolve series that I know about and I was in the mood for another paranormal read. It has been one of the best decisions i've ever made to give this series a chance, it is now my absolute favorite werewolve series! I urge you to purchase this book, give it a chance you will love the series as much as I do, but you have to read the books in order or it won't make any sense at all.
