"What's more dangerous than standing between a Mother and her child? Standing between a Vampire Mother and her child."
It's been three years since I have turned, and I am not sure who I am anymore. I don't even know if I want to be what I have become. Is love enough to keep me alive inside even if I am dead? How can I find peace within myself when everything around me screams war and death? How will things end when one man holds my eternal love and another wants me dead? There is no end as far as I can see. It’s just the beginning because I can feel the darkness approaching. It wants me. It calls for me by name. I will keep on fighting until it arrives. The problem is, if I don’t learn to shut off my emotions I may just become my own worst enemy. Is it all too much, or not enough? These are the things a vampire queen, new mother and woman fighting with her past human morals must ask herself. I have one more important question to answer that could change everything. IS THIS REALLY WHAT I WANT?
The red jeweled necklace the coven called The Eye of the Queen sat right at my cleavage. I ran one finger over my pale skin and red lips as I looked at my reflection in the mirror. Queen was my title, but I knew different. I was just a beautiful killer. (Goodreads)
The Revelation is a truly apt name indeed for this installation of The Guardians. Many things about the past are revealed from Caleb, Sasha, a not so dead Cain and more importantly, the real reason for the creation of the Dark Angels is revealed. Readers who enjoyed book 1, you ain't seen nothin' yet, because this series' has turned out to be like a fine wine, it only gets better with time.
If you think being a mother is tough, try being a brand new vampire trying to raise two teenage vampires with the raging hormones of a human teen times ten who sped through diapers, terrible twos, adolescence and puberty all in the course of three years. As if that isn't enough to deal with Gionna must also face threats both inside the walls of her own home when Caleb's ex-girlfriend decides to pop in and pay a visit, and the claws literally come out. Gianna's plate quickly goes from full to overflowing when someone she loves sacrifices themself in an attempt to save her life.
Meanwhile it looks as though their mortal enemies are not as dead as they think, and he has been plotting all this time to get the vengeance he feels is rightfully his. The torment he has planned just may be the final straw that rips apart her heart. He has set several games to play with Gionna, all of which involve her coven, her family and her children.
This series' is a true must read for all vampire lovers, of the non-sensitive variety. Be advised, this book cannot be read as a stand-alone. Readers will be on the edge of there seats from one page to the next, and desperately awaiting Book 3, Blood Vengeance.
