"Seductive and spellbinding!" -- Shiloh Walker

About the Author

Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting, banking, and a (very) brief teaching career before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing--and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own.Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter.

Demon Forged is absolutely the best of Meljean Brook's Guardian series to date. Character rich and well crafted, Demon Forged is equal parts romance and a story which builds on and adds some surprising developments to the overall arc of this excellent series -- I thoroughly loved this book and I am only barely resisting the urge to gush and rave.

Guardians Irena and Alejandro - whom Irena calls Olek- have a history, in fact they have 400 years of history. Originally teacher and student, Irena and Alejandro had been stoking an attraction and headed toward an eventual consummation until a fluke and a bargain lead to hurt, shame and anger which causes them to separate for 200 years and which hangs between them for 200 years more. For the past 2 centuries Alejandro and Irena have been antagonistic `friends', dancing around the anger and need that still burns between them - both wanting more, both unsure of the other's feelings, and both too stubborn and proud to take a chance on breaching the distance and facing the truth of what happened to force them apart.

Demon Forged is probably the steamiest of the Guardian books. Somehow the sensuality level in Brook's books always seems to fit the leads - and both Alejandro and Irena are passionate and intense. And even though Brook makes us wait 400 years for the pair to finally come together, she builds the anticipation by giving us a glimpse from the past of the barely leashed attraction between Irena and Alejandro, so that we truly understand the depth of the need that both have suffered. So it is not surprising, that when the pair - who have spent hundreds of year verbal sparring as `foreplay' - finally connect, it is so hot that it is literally on fire.

Demon Forged is the eighth book in Meljean's Guardian series and will absolutely, positively blow your mind. Where as Demon Bound was a bit restrained, Demon Forged explodes with such rich dialogue, descriptions and remarkable characters we have all grown to love.

The two main characters here are Guardians Irena and Alejandro who I first met in Demon Night. They really didn't make much of an impression on me at first. But after reading their story, they have become my second favorite couple behind Hugh and Lilith. Irena and Alejandro have a relationship much like the one Hugh and Lilith have. Alejandro loves Irena so much, but because of a very horrible event from their past, Irena keeps him at arms length. Alejandro will do whatever he can to have any type of relationship with Irena. She knows that she is his weakness and flaunts it to the point where he is at the breaking point. He thinks he knows why Irena can't love him and be with him, but how so very wrong he is. When he finds out why, he is shocked to his core. I certainly was.

The other side of Demon Forged deals with the ongoing fight between the Guardians and those various creatures of pure evil. The prophecy that has been foretold since the beginning is about to come to a head and the Guardians, as well as their allies, need to take up arms because what is about to happen is quite the doozy.

Now this doozy, as I call it, is in regards to a certain character and his reaction to his future told by Khavi, who has the Gift of foresight. When Michael figures out some very important things in regards to the prophecy, his part in it, and the one he is meant to love and be with, will send a tidal wave of shock and awe like you wouldn't believe.

The guardian series appears slightly formulaic. Star crossed lovers who cannot truly commit to each other because of outside challenges fight their overwhelming passion and an evil threat until they erupt in a fit of mad steamy sex, defeat the evil and make an eternal commitment. But the fun is in the chase, the dialogue as they exchange banter and the challenge of how will they defeat evil and overcome barriers to their relationship. This book has the best plot and action scenes of the series. But the characters and witty banter is not as good as some of the other books in the Guardian series.

In this case Irena a 1600 year old Guardian (angel like protector of weak humans) and Alejandro a dark and handsome Spanish sword fighter Guardian meet, have steamy sex then fight. It takes while to unfold why they broke up for 400 years after this, since they are so obviously overwhelmingly attracted to each other. When the reason does unfold it feels slightly contrived and both appear to be acting like teenagers. For Guardians with their ages, they sure are immature. In the meantime a dragon breaks free from Chaos to lay ravage to earth and a demon senator continues his plot supporting SI (guardians and vampires fighting paranormal evil) while secretly following his own agenda (no real surprise, he is a demon).

More is revealed about Guardians, the Grigori, nephilim ... This is the fastest paced, tightest story line so far in the series. If you are fan you must read this book because many secrets are revealed. If you not already a fan so much information is dumped it may appear slightly confusing. But it is very exciting and the best battle scenes yet in the series. Irena's battle with nephilim and the trip to the chaos realm stand out.
