Nick Wyatt has been on the run his entire life.  His mother and he barely stayed one step ahead of the people hunting them.  When the horrific happens and Nickís mother is killed, he is left alone to grow up not knowing why he is being hunted by a race of killers called the Xerans.  Nick thinks he is a human Ė he doesnít realize that he is half Xeran.  Nickís Xeran half is what has given him almost superhero powers Ė he is quick to heal and extraordinarily strong.  What he has in his possession, however, is the reason he is a target Ė Nick has an artifact that the Xerans want and they will continue to hunt him down until they find it.

Riane Arvid and her canine helper Frieka live in the future.   Riane is a police officer and a member of the Temporal Enforcement Agency.  She and her fellow officers have been given a lead on the traitor they are after and so she and Frieka, after being given their duties, begin their journey to find Ivar Terje.  The minute she leaves the regeneration tube, she realizes that her T-suit has been messed with and unable to stop, Riane time travels through time and space until she finally lands in 2009, in the state of South Carolina.  Sick and without power, Riane is almost helpless.  Itís a good thing that Nick Wyatt arrives when he does; he saves Riane from being food for the cyborg, Ivar Terje.

I donít know how she does it but every single time I read an Angela Knight release, I am spellbound and in awe at her ability to take a world, make it realistic, and then pull me into that same world so completely that I do not want to leave.  GUARDIAN is such a book.  From scene one until the end, I couldnít read fast enough to find out what was going to happen.  I winced, I smiled, and I got a bit emotional when finding out about Rianeís childhood as well as reliving Nickís.  The chemistry and sexual tension between these two endearing and strong characters is smoldering hot and erotic.  The fight scenes are dynamic and well, basically, there was nothing I didnít like.


GUARDIAN
is the second book of Angela Knightís The Time Hunters series.  As such I highly recommend reading book one, WARRIOR, but if that isnít possible, GUARDIAN works very well as a stand-alone.  Just be aware that GUARDIAN starts off after WARRIOR ends.  Donít miss this heady and futuristic novel, it is awesome!
