About the Author

Wendy Owens was raised in the small college town, Oxford Ohio. After attending Miami University, Wendy went onto a career in the visual arts field.

That moment was when she knew she had found her calling. Wendy now happily spends her days writing the stories her characters guide her to tell, admitting even she doesn’t always know where that might lead. Her first series, The Guardians, will be concluded with the fourth and final book in 2013. When she’s not writing, this dog lover can be found spending time with her tech geek husband, their three amazing kids, and two pups in their Cincinnati, Ohio home. She loves to cook, read, and is a film fanatic. For more info on Wendy's young adult fiction visit http://wendy-owens.com/

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.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for my stop on the blog tour.

Rating - 3.5 stars

I haven't read many angel and demon books, and so I was excited to see what Sacred Bloodlines was all about. I wanted to know more about the world Gabe finds out he's a part of and what his decision would ultimately be - whether he chooses to live this new life or go back to his old one. The beginning really pulled me in and was so well done. It was one of my favorite parts of the novel! I really love it when a novel begins with a bang!

Right away I really liked and empathized with the main character Gabe. I found him to be an interesting and multifaceted character that I easily rooted for. I didn't like Uri right away, but he grew on me throughout the novel. I think I didn't like Uri at first because I found myself feeling protective of Gabe. With everything Gabe has been through, I didn't want to see him go through more heartache.

One of the things I didn't like was the constant need for Uri to tell Gabe he'll get his answers when he takes him to the Manor. I think Uri, knowing as much as he does about Gabe, should know that Gabe doesn't have an easy time with trusting others and could have given him at least the gist of what was happening. He would only tell him he'd have to wait to find out. I don't think I would have left with a complete stranger.

Overall, there's plenty of action and excitement, and I flew through it! I really liked the angels and demons aspect of this and thought Wendy Owens created a unique and believable world where these supernatural beings exist. Sacred Bloodlines is a great start to a series, and I'll definitely be reading the rest of the books in it. If you're a fan of fantasy and paranormal, check this series out!

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.

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. (:

I think this book has more potential than it is, if only someone had edited the book. I'm not an English teacher, but even I know when to use the words: heel or heal, vial not vile, and shudder not shutter. The spelling and grammatical pulled me out of the story, continually distracting me from the plot. Undecided if I'll continue the series for that reason.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I started this book pretty much blind. Not to say that everything was fuzzy and I couldn't read the pages, but my wife had finished it a short while ago and enjoyed it when I was given the opportunity to review the entire series I said "sure why not!" without even reading the excerpt. After all if she thought I'd like it, then I probably would, she kinda gets me like that.

**I'm not going to give away anything vitally important to the plot but if you're squeamish of any hint of a spoiler just go get the book now and read it (At this time it's free on amazon, so you really have nothing to lose and a lot to gain!)**

Before I started reading I thought this was going to be a fantasy novel, but to my surprise it's a modern day setting. I really enjoyed the historical and religious tie-ins to the story and background that really added detail to the world of The Guardians.

I'm a sucker for the Chosen one trope and Sacred Bloodlines doesn't disappoint. Our hero Gabe is whisked away to follow his destiny as a Guardian to defend the world against the demons that threaten to destroy everything, and thus begins the bulk of the book and my personal favorite part of these stories as we're introduced to his peers, guided through their world, and get to relish in Gabe learning the basics of magic and combat.

There were a lot of characters involved and I feel like two of them in particular didn't get the page time they really needed to have the emotional impact that I think they were supposed to. If Anthony and Michael were more involved with Gabes training and had more interaction with him then I think the drama surrounding them would have been more intense.
