Book Description

***RE-EDITED***As of 8/23/2013 Sacred Bloodlines has been completely re-edited.
   For as long as Gabe can remember, his life had been plagued by haunting images and tragic events. It seemed like everyone he knew or loved was doomed for a life of misery or death. He was starting to come to the same conclusion everyone else had--he must be cursed. Until one day, in a subway tunnel, everything suddenly changed. A horrific disaster led him to a strange new person named Uri.
     Uri introduced Gabe to an exciting new world filled with angels, demons, magic, and best of all, a beautiful girl named Sophie. This chance at a new life had everything Gabe always longed for: a family, friends, and possibly even love. He soon discovered, though, that this life came at a steep price. One he feared might cost him his life.

Book 1 Sacred Bloodlines
Book 2 Cursed
Book 3 The Prophecy
Book 4 The Lost Years
Book 5 The Guardians Crown

About the Author

Wendy Owens was born and raised in the small Ohio town, Oxford, home of Miami University in September of 1978. As a child she would often express her creative side by writing short stories and poems for her friends and family to enjoy. Living in a small town provided Wendy with the luxury of walking to her local public library after school where she could often be found, immersed in a pile of books. After a career in the visual arts Wendy decided to return to her passion of writing. Her first series is called The Guardians series and is about the battle between angel hybrids and demons. Wendy now lives in Cincinnati, OH with her husband, three young children, and two active dogs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but not THAT interesting. February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I purchased this book due to the interesting premise and the 5 star reviews. The book certainly isn't bad, but its not stellar either. It has most (if not all) of the typical youth fiction cliches(dead parents, estranged childhood, etc.) which makes it a bit predictable and therefore a little slow. It was nearly comical how many times that the main character heard something to the effect of "you must have a lot of questions .....but we won't answer them until later" or "Oh. we were going to tell you about that at some point ... but we were busy". On the other hand, the concept of familial bloodlines of guardians to fight against the demons charged with making all sorts of trouble was (at least to me) original and fun. The romance between the main character and his love interest seemed forced for someone with his history, but not a deal breaker. I felt like giving it 2 stars because of what appeared to be nearly cloned 5 star reviews just to average them out, but instead just decided to review it on its own merits. Perhaps the books rough edges will be worked out if the series progresses.

Was not what I had expected. This was a book I could not put down. If I had let myself I would have finished it in one night. But life called so it took me 2 days to finish it. Great story line a new twist on the idea of angels an demons.

Liked the storyline and was interested to reach the ending. Did not feel it was complete as a book and spell checking does not help if you choose like_ sounding words that mean something else. Some editing would raise this author to a higher level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, But Not Perfect December 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The concept of the book was very interesting.

The book being based around the 16 year old boy, Gabe, who lost his parents at a young age and soon comes to find he is apart of a special bloodline. He's taken to a hidden manor, and is told his destiny is to be apart of the "guardians", who are trained to fight demons, evil, and the seven princes of hell.

While the concept is captivating, it was just executed rather poorly in my opinion. I feel that many parts are rushed, and I honestly just don't care much for the main character. had I not liked the concept so much I would have given the book a 3 star rating.

Regardless I will still be reading the second book. (:
