Book review: Ivory Guard - Natalie Herzer (The Guard Duet #1)
*New Adult Paranormal Romance*
Life will make you stumble
One peaceful afternoon Lillian finds two angels in her living room - wings and gloriole and all - telling her she is an Ivory. Half human and half angel she is born to fight for humankind and to guard the hellholes where the membrane between worlds is at its weakest.
She, an important warrior? Yeah, riiiight.
Life can make you fall
Raz might be an angel but he doesn’t do compassion. His job is to train her, to make her a leader and that’s what he will do. So Lillian will just have to suck it up when she discovers the deadly truth behind his words. When she does exactly that, he has to admit there’s more to the bookworm than he thought. Much more. But there’s one thing he shouldn’t forget – in his world feelings come with a price. Is he willing to pay?
Love will give you wings.
I did not expect to like this book as much as I did - 'fantasy' not being my absolute favorite genre; and not being in the right mindset myself when I started reading. But I loved reading Ivory Guard. In true Natalie Herzer style, from the very first chapter you find yourself drawn into this whole new world with rules and creatures you've never heard of before. You forget the world around you and you get lost in this world with Ivory's, Angels and Demons (no, not Bernini's), and in Lillian and Raz's epic love story.
Lillian is the perfect main character, and Raz the perfect broody, sexy tough guy who, of course, turns out to be soft romantic as hell. (Ha!) ... and did I mention sexy? Sheez!
Everything fit for me. The characters, their relationships, their conversations, the story line... Brilliant!
Friendship, battle and love... emotions run high in Ivory Guard! Can't wait for more!
About the author.
I'm a 26 year old old aspiring indie author, suffering from itchy feet which recently carried me to Ireland.
Much like my beloved travel bug, my love for words has always been there, but is thankfully a lot easier to satisfy. When I'm not off wandering my own imaginary worlds, I love to curl up on the couch and get lost in a good book.
Though I guess in the end books are just another form of traveling, seeing places and finding friends.
Thank you so much for asking me to review Ivory Guard, Natalie.
I absolutely loved it and can't wait for more! ;-)
This was on repeat while reading Ivory Guard.
I really found it fitting for Lillian and Raz, in a way...
