Book two in the Halflings trilogy, by award-winning author Heather Burch.
In Guardian, the mission to protect seventeen-year-old Nikki Youngblood depends on a fragile alliance between two half-angel, half-human guardians, both struggling with powerful feelings for the girl who has been assigned to their care. As danger intensifies, so does the tension between Mace and Raven, who learn there may be some things that are impossible to defend against - including the secrets of Nikki's heritage and her true purpose and destiny.
The Halflings trilogy strikes a perfect balance for teen and adult readers looking for a well-written and exciting alternative to mainstream paranormal romance selections. Gripping and spiritually engaging, Guardian is a must-read installment from a dynamic and appealing series.
