I lbought this book a year ago by accident. I had no idea what it was about but I'm glad I got it. I read Cross My Heart by Katie Klein and really liked it. This wasn't a bad purchase.
I like Genesis, unlike Bella in Twilight I don't find Genesis annoying. I liked she exercise her free will and she stood by her decisions. Seth is her guardian, he looks out for her. He protects her and falls in love with him. He's a likable character. There's no surprise in who Arsen really is. He's a likable character but you know he's too good to be true.
I did find Carter to be a bit annoying. He needs to learn to be stronger. Selena is annoying but she changes a bit towards the end. I did like that even though Carter is in love with Genesis he remains her friend and believes her no matter what.
I would recommend this book. It's an easy read and easy to get into.
Life for 17 year old Genesis Green has never been easy. When Genesis isn't at school she is working to help her mom pay the bills. So dating a rich boyfriend like Carter should be a wish come true but all it does is cause tension. A fight between them leads to a car accident that has Genesis waking up in the hospital. Genesis begins to see clearly and makes changes in her life. Especially when she meets a few new men in her life. One in particular named Seth, who only she can see and only seems to appear when he wants to. Seth saves Genesis again and reluctantly begins to reveal a whole new reality to her about the Guardians. Genesis now finds herself in a war between good and evil, all while trying to be a normal teen.
Overall, okay read, started off slow but got more interesting by the end. Genesis appears to be complex but her life is just a mess. The extra guy drama added insult to her character that was growing in independence. The greatest moment was when she tells her mom to stick it. Now Seth as the male lead is subpar, he's meant to be her guardian and immediately falls for her. All I could think was little creepy, since he's something and unknown age. Seth even throws a fit when Genesis agrees to help, because he'd have to really watch her back now since evil would be after her. Like duh dude still your job! If I was Genesis I'd have made Seth beg to get back in my good graces after ditching me. Anyways, the biggest fact about the book is the allusions of each name (ex. Genesis means origin) hinting at things to come or were all to culminate in the epic good vs. evil finale. So if you're looking for a new paranormal young adult book about a teen girl with a gift ready to take on evil because she had good and a guardian on her side, hen his book might lead you into a new series.

it ends there. basically I told you part of the story. not half of it.
it's a good book. kind of the same lines repeated that got on my nerves, I think a lot more of Genesis visions should have been talked about. what happened to her mom. you never do find out. why if Carter us so in love with he he never tries to.get her back. theirs just a lot missing but the book has a decent story line. maybe took.#2 is better.
I would've gave it a 3star but I liked the good verses evil and the guardian falling in love with the human plus a lot more of Genesis life. it's a really good account of a mother who makes her daughter grow up too fast, taking on too much responsibility at a young age. never thinking theirs anything wrong with it and always with the wrong kind of men. her daughter knows it but she meant get it.
it's just pretty true to life and then, dangerous, sweet and thrilling .
I'd say read it. it's a fast read but the end disappointed me. I hate cliffhanger s to that extent and not knowing what really happened to other people in the story. but it's a 4star.
After reading through the book twice, I am, as yet, unsure about reading the final two books of the trilogy.
With so much missed opportunity, The Guardian gets 3 stars from me.
