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!
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 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.Read more ›

This is an interesting twist on guardian angels. The fantasy can be endless with it being angels and demons. The story dives right in and keeps your interest throughout the book.Published 18 days ago by Guy Dale
Gabe is too naive for the world that's revolving around him. Maybe, because of his upbringing.
He doesn't learn yet, that if something looks too good, it isn't. Read more
