Nexi Jones—part witch, part guardian, and wannabe kick-ass warrior—can’t throw a punch or conjure the simplest magic. But that doesn’t stop her from hunting the werewolves who slaughtered her human family. She’ll have her revenge, but only if Kyden, the elite guardian, would get the hell out of her way.
Kyden can’t decide if Nexi wants to get herself killed or if she just has no clue what she’s doing. But her father made it clear: keep Nexi safe…or else. Of course, the more Nexi runs toward revenge, the more she needs Kyden’s aid, and as she grows into her power and confidence, so does his desire to protect her. The only problem? She’d rather he dropped dead.
But when a vampire paints a bull’s-eye on Nexi’s back, she’s hard-pressed to deny Kyden and the help he’s offering. Even if it means getting her revenge will be a little bit harder. At least it will still be as sweet.
This story was previously published elsewhere under the title The Willow in 2010, and has been revised and expanded for Entangled Publishing.
My Opinion 2 STARS (this is being nice)
**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**
To be honest i was completely bored for the first half of the book and thought that i was wasting my time. Luckily the second half of the book improved, but not enough that I would actually go out and buy the book.
You would have thought the idea of men in kilts, vampires, werewolves, witches and guardians sounds exciting, but the way this story was told is a total turn off. There is a good premise behind the writing.
Nexi seemed to be bad tempered and too self absorbed while Kyden was just plain boring. Flinn well he didn't add much and Haven only added slightly to the story.
Overall i wasn't impressed with this book and would suggest that if you want to read this book you borrow it from the library.
