Out Of The Shadows
At six-foot-three and two-hundred-fifty pounds, Fane is a natural born guardian. A flawless mix of muscled perfection and steely precision, he has devoted years of his life to protecting a beautiful necromancer. But after she found love in the arms of another, Fane has been a warrior adrift. He swears allegiance only to the Sentinels. And no woman will ever rule his heart again.
Into The Fire
Not only a powerful psychic, Serra is that rare telepath who can connect to minds through objects. When the daughter of a high-blood businessman is kidnapped, Serra agrees to help. But when she stumbles onto a conspiracy involving secrets sects and ancient relics, her life is in mortal danger--and Fane is her only hope. Is the warrior willing to risk his body, his soul, and his heart, for Serra? Or will one last betrayal destroy them both?
I started reading Alexandra Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series and fell in love with her style and the characters she brought to life. I have also read her Bayou Heat series with the Pantera shifters. In the Sentinels series, we are introduced to humans with extra ordinary skills and the guardians who protect them. I am always looking for a different twist on genres that I read a lot. I am thrilled to say that this series is full of surprises! Ivy not only pushes the limits on what is "normal" behavior in her world building, she does so while still making the reader feel connected to these paranormal beings.
Blood Assassin is full of intrigue, murder, suspense and some steamy romance. Fane is a moody hunk of tattooed sex on a stick. Serra has pursued him for years and finally gives up only to have Fane come full circle and do some chasing of his own. Serra is also a strong female lead in this story. Her abilities cause her some stress but she is willing to get some support from Fane. When they finally do come together the combustion is off the charts!
It was nice to catch up on some of the other characters from the first book and novella. Can't wait to see who we will get to know in the next book. Put this series on your TBR. This could be a stand alone but why not get all the back story and read the other two books?
