Left for dead, captured, and sold
into slavery, Miranda’s life as a Healer working for the
Alliance has been nothing but isolation, suffering and
hardship. When her new master entrusts her with the care of
a young male Enjel, her abilities as an empath make her
unable to refuse. Soon his Guardian, Osias Aron, arrives to
retrieve him from her master. The attraction between them
is potent and instant.
While traveling to the Enjel home
world, Jela, Miranda is brutally assaulted and almost dies.
Osias is very protective yet follows custom in housing
Miranda in the Women’s Aerie. He must court her according
to his people’s customs which limits their time and
interaction. Unbeknownst to the lovers, there are those who
wish to destroy their happiness by thwarting their chances
of being together.
Guardian Enjel is an
inspirational interlude, where a journey through dark times
is overcome by the radiance of love, fulfillment, and joy.
Danger, romance, and intrigue are key elements to a plot
filled with complex characters that readers will easily find
fascinating and feel a connection to. One of the liveliest
‘facts’ in this universe is that humans, or Terrans, are a
Miranda’s hardships engaged me
immediately, as much as her pluck and resilience. Her
explosive attraction to Osias is tumultuous, a powerful
current that sweeps them along through every aspect of the
story. Her inner strength is complimented by the Enjel that
she loves. While he is determined to protect and avenge his
lady love, the gifted Healer demonstrates her bravery and
fearlessness when duty calls. After a while, I wasn’t
certain who was saving who! Keeping that in mind, there’s
enough alien culture and plots twists (something I’ve come
to expect in the Viola Grace universe) to pad the narrative
and keep you dancing on the edge of anticipation. This is
yet another stellar installment to thrill, captivate, and
entertain in the multilayered world this author has created
and lovingly expanded upon. Guardian Enjel
is a five pointer on a one to five scale that will keep old
readers more than happy while luring new readers to the
universe of the Alliance.
