ANGEL'S GUARDIAN does have significant elements of explicit sex and violence, including rape and torture, which are intrinsic to the story but can be difficult to read. The book's opening scenes (and an extended torture sequence near the end) are definitely not for the squeamish; however, once Max takes Angel and her children into his home, the story becomes a real pleasure to read as emotional attachments develop, people change and grow, and a tentative, loving family gradually comes into being. I fell in love with the characters as I read this section of the book, and I'm very glad Ms. Lugo took the time to develop her characters in this powerful way.
The story concludes a bit abruptly and with an open-ended feeling. I hope this means Max and Angel will have many more adventures to come!
Once again, Zeece’s characters come alive on the pages, well, screen. The story starts out dark, as we’re introduced to Max whose witnessing a brutal assault on a young woman. What he didn’t expect was this chance encounter would change his whole existence. Suddenly, he finds himself burdened with an injured woman, a baby, and a young girl, Nina. I just adored Nina. She stole so many scenes in this story.
My favorite part of the book was when Nina was trying to get Max to change her brother’s poop filled diapers. We all know men who cringe at the thought of changing nose-hair scorching, stinking diapers. I laughed at Max’s revulsion and then his solution to the problem.
There are two plots intertwined together. Angel is running from the man who kidnapped her for his sex trade, and Max is running away from his family obligations and duty to vampire kingdom. The story moves at a good clip, especially when Jonathan is being tortured and Angel is being tracked down by her ruthless enemy. I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough.
I originally read a beta version of the story and the ending was sort of abrupt. Zeece has since added to the story which has given more depth to Max and Angel’s relationship. I approve.
This is the first book in a series, and I can’t wait to read more about Max and Angel. And don’t forget little Nina. If you love vampires with a different slant, I highly recommend this book. I give it a well-deserved 5 bat wings.

Max, tall, strong, and by the end shaven and handsome is a vampire...reluctant to take on his hereditary mantle of king. Vampire with a difference, let's say if New York, his preferred home, had him there for real, the police might be out of work soon...his preferred food, from the criminal fraternity, then dispatch the left overs. Love that part.
During his night prowls he meets...no reluctantly saves, Angel, and her baby and young daughter. No more about plot. But I laughed aloud at the viewpoint from Max with them in his home.
I loved how the two species develop their relationship, there were erotic moments.
Loved the justice of the story, probably not as much as characters, Jonathan, nor Angel did. There were times when my heart thumped in my chest noticably...or was that my heart condition ;)
And I'm looking forward to when the next part of the story comes out, I shall want to read it.
There is a prequel that shows how Max and Jonathan meet up, and I advise readers of this to read that first. [book:Vampire, Not Monster: Short Story Prequel to Angel's Guardian|32065556].
Okay, slight niggle, I would love for Zeece Lugo to use a thesaurus more often, especially when referring to Max's speed and how he leaped up, leaped down, leaped across, leaped far too much for my liking, he could do with...bounding, jumped, ascended, descended, capered, surged, soared, sprinted, rocketed...along with a few less leaped. It would make for a good five star read then.
As is I give it a good four stars...close to five.
Thanks, Lex, for recommending this story.
It tells the story of Maxim, a vampire who has chosen a life of exile in New York. He lives as a recluse, a lonely hermit, feeding off the low lives and scum of the city; until he rescues a young woman, Angel, and her family from a group of brutal thugs.
His solitary life is transformed into a mess of conflicting emotions, yearning, and smelly nappies. I did chuckle several times as I imagined a centuries-old-vampire changing a poopie diaper.
Underneath it all flows an undercurrent of danger, as both Max’s and Angel’s past demons threaten their lives.
Again, Lugo displays an amazing talent for writing. Her characters are perfectly developed, and you will learn to love them all, and hate the enemies. Little Nina was my favorite, though I loved Charlie the dog.
Yet another solid five stars!
It's a joy to read a little more of Jonathan's place in Max's life and his promised life path, albeit fraught in unexpected danger.
