The Guardian by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Dream-Hunter Lydia has been charged with the most sacred and dangerous of missions: To descend into the Nether Realm and find the missing god of dreams before he betrays the secrets that could kill her and her kind. What she never expects is to be taken prisoner by the Realm’s most vicious guardian…
Seth’s time is running out. If he can’t hand over the entrance to Olympus, his own life and those of his people will be forfeit. No matter the torture, Seth hasn’t been able to break the god in his custody. Then there’s the beautiful Dream-Hunter Lydia: She isn’t just guarding the gates of Olympus—she’s holding back one of the world’s darkest powers. If she fails, an ancient curse will haunt the earth once more and no one will be safe. But evil is always seductive...
For anyone who has read the saga that is sweeping the nation be it the Dark-Hunter, Dream hunter and so on, of Sherrilyn Kenyon's work's then you know that the main charachter is no stranger to heartache. The king of heartache and pain being Acheron himself, hopefully you my fellow reader have read his story and that of Zarek, because they are the ones I think who had it the worst. But Seth gives them a run for their money.
I always felt so bad for the poor boy whose father was the powerfull Egyptian god SET, and through the story you see as each time the people he considers his family and he actually lets under his guard betray him in some of the worst ways possible until he is sold into slavery, to a god or powerful being of Hell and literally has ages upon ages of torture.
One of the things I loved about this book was the fact that they took a step away from the well known Greek Gods and traveled into Egyptian territory.
I could also relate with how hard it is to let someone in after you have been stomped on time and time again and then kicked when you are down just for safe measure.
This book will break your heart and rebuild it.
Rating: 5 Stars!
Favorite Charrie: Jaden, he always is one of my favorite characters for his smart ass mouth and go to hell attitude no matter what.
