Your Guardian Angel (Guardian Angel #1)
Author: Skyla Madi
For Ruby Moore life is far more complicated than that of your average teen, for she is in no way average. Ruby is a vampire and her life as a vampire is far from traditional.
It has been one year since her normal life was brutally taken from her. Still adjusting to the shock of the change from mortal to immortal, her world is rocked again and she is taken under the wings of a guardian angel back to Sage Sanctum- a school beyond reach from the vampires that are determined to destroy her.
There, she is freed from her vampiric chains and her normal needs and urges return. However a new urge arises… Lust. A forbidden lust toward her savior, her guardian angel.
Attempting to control these desires is difficult, very difficult and when things couldn't possibly get any worse, her situation becomes life or death as someone, somewhere in the school is aiding those who want her dead.
Sun Kissed (Guardian Angel #2)
What if everything you knew, everything you believed was a lie?
For Ruby Moore life doesn’t slow down. It’s just one roller coaster ride after another and when the higher power comes to visit, Ruby’s world is shaken to its foundations. He offers her a job and if she wants to protect those she loves, she has no choice but to accept it.
Face to face once again with love, loss and death, Ruby is being forced to sacrifice her own freedom in order to protect her world from the clutches of the evil vampires and if she fails, her loved ones will have to pay the price.
Salvation (Guardian Angel #3)
In the aftermath of a battle that forced Ruby to flee the safety of the guardian angels, she settles into a small town, hoping to blend in and forget about the ones she loved. It isn’t until Hunter stumbles across her working in a bar and a well-timed email from Ivan Aleksandrov that she realised she could go back to Sage Sanctum—for a few days, at least.
Out for revenge, Lucian will stop at nothing until he has Ruby for himself, but he isn’t the only one that needs her. The council, a group of gods/goddesses have a mysterious hand in Ruby’s return to Sage Sanctum and Mr Aleksandrov is eager to find out what it is.
Destroying Lucian is the least of her worries when Ruby comes face to face with Eli De Luca, the love of her life. It seems her departure has affected him more than she thought it would, but his frustration with her isn’t strong enough to hide the electricity that crackles relentlessly between them.
Determined to end her very real nightmare once and for all, Ruby fights the biggest battle of her life, one that affects not only her, but everyone involved.
Your Guardian Angel
Your Guardian Angel follows Ruby Moore after she is attacked by her step-father who has become a vampire. In Ruby’s world a vampire must drink the blood of a goddess or guardian angel in order to look more human, and those that look more human are more powerful. Ruby and her mother just happen to be goddesses. After her father kills her mother Ruby becomes a half-vampire and her entire life changes.
Ruby was a likable character she is independent and really wants what is best for those around her. I liked her dedication to her adopted Aunt and Cousin. The instant she felt that there was any danger to them she dropped everything in order to protect them.
I really like mentor/student relationships so I was already biased toward liking the romance between Eli De Luca and Ruby. Not only is there an age taboo but Guardian Angels are not supposed to mix with Goddesses and especially not vampires. There is a lot working against the attraction these two share.
Overall, Guardian Angel was a pretty good read. There were a couple problems I had with the plot, they were mostly little things; I wished the world was further fleshed out but this is the first book in a series so I expect the author will explain things further in the next book. This novel is perfect for fans of Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout and Halo by Alexandra Ardonetto.
