Book Review (96).

Awakened (The Guardian Legacy #1)

We jump straight into the story which I loved instead of having to wait a while to find out what was going on, Lilith 'Lil' hears a boy's voice in her head telling her to meet him outside a bit wary she goes and finds a boy her age Bran who asks for her help , with the things he tells her she thinks he's lost his mind, but she soon discovers her life has all been a lie her Grampa has kept a lot of things from her, not only about herself but about who he really is too.
She's a Guardian tasked with saving humans from the demons that want to take there souls.
I loved everything about this book the storyline was fantastic with all the different I guess you could say species of angels and demons which are: Xenith, Hermonites, Guardians, Neteru, Werenephil, Nosferatu, Souled Demons, Nephlings and Nature Benders.
To have a world where it's not your typical good angel and fallen angel makes this so much more exciting and intriguing and I enjoyed finding out about them all and their different powers and such.
Some of the powers that are used in this book include: telepathy, teleportation, mind persuasion, healing, the ability to change time, telekinisis and the list goes on.
Lil has a gypsy heritage that she's proud of and mostly dresses the part with the skirts and the jewellery and travels around with her Grampa in a trailer from place to place.

We also meet other trainee Guardians at Lil's school Remy, Sykes, Izzy and Kim and they all train together of course once they find out about Bran they're wary and don't trust him.
I loved the interaction between Lil and Bran they make such a cute couple, there isn't really any character here that I felt bored reading about.

I really can't say enough good things about this book, now off to get lost in the second book.

I give this 5/5.
