Arc- Guardian (Halflings #2)

Title: Guardian (Halflings #2)
Author: Heather Burch
Expected publication: October 9, 2012

Pages: 320
Goodreads synopsis: Vigilance. The mission to safeguard Nikki Youngblood depends on the fragile alliance of two half-angel, half-human guardians, both struggling with intense feelings for the girl who has been assigned to their care. Mace, steadfast and deeply in love, wants to protect Nikki at all costs, while Raven's loyalty to Nikki finds him advocating for her independence and battling his own darker inclinations. At the same time, Nikki finds it harder and harder to choose between the two heavenly beings she may never have. Dangers intensify, and tensions between Mace and Raven flare as the purpose of their mission becomes clear. Can their defenses hold up to master manipulator Damon Vessler and the powerful secret he holds regarding Nikki's heritage? Can anyone protect Nikki from her true purpose and destiny?
Fate's thoughts: I don't want to spoil the series for anyone so i wont go in detail. Also if you haven't read the first book in the series, please do.  I loved this book. Its filled with action and discovery. We learn some really unsuspected things in this book. Although, i was frustrated with the romance because quite frankly i felt like she was stringing both Mace and Raven along. She did kind of lean toward Mace however, since I'm team Raven, I was a very unhappy camper but i got over it. I liked all the characters except Mace, as i said I'm team Raven so that might affect my Pov, but i just didn't agree with how he acted. He was way too overprotective of Nikkie and uptight and all alpha male. Nikkie's character was great in this installment of the series. She did have her damsel i distress moments but most of the time she was bad ass, especially in the end. Oh my god, the ending nearly killed me. Worst Cliff hanger ever(in a good way). The ending was completely open with both the romance and basically everything else. i cant wait for the next installment and i completely recommend this series to all ages 14+.
