Publisher's Summary

Rush is a Fae Guardian, a wolf-shifter whose enhanced abilities have made him a ruthless protector of Elphyne. His job is to protect the realm from the human enemy, and to ensure the sins of the past never come to pass again, lest magic die forever. But one night of weakness resulted in a curse worse than death - exile. Now he spends his lonely time longing to be part of the living, once again protecting them from monsters…until one mysteriously washes up on the shores of his lake.

Clarke is human. She's beautiful, feisty, and fierce. She's also the only person who can see him, speak to him, and touch him.

If he hands her over to the Order, she’s his ticket to having his curse removed. Unable to resist the opportunity, he tricks her into a bargain of obedience, never once suspecting his world is about to be turned upside down. The more he learns about this human enemy, the more he realizes she’s not the monster he’s been trained to believe she is. In fact, she’s capable of inciting passion he’d never dreamed possible again. But Clarke has a message from the past…sins are already repeating. This time, if they don’t stop the coming evil, it won’t just be magic that dies. It will be everything.

A new style of epic fantasy featuring steamy shifter romance, a dash of time travel, monster hunting, a band of brothers, fated mates, growly fae protectors, and their strong-willed women from our time. If you love your books full of pause-resisting action, romantic tension, and world-building you can get lost in, then this book is for you.

4.25 Stars 🌟

What a completely unexpected but pleasant surprise. I came into this series with absolutely no expectations and I have to say, I enjoyed the heck out of it. I will say that the cover was one thing that made me decide to put it next up in my TBR que (and that is not something that usually influences me either way) so there is that. I actually ended up alternating between listening and reading, but listened to probably 85% to 90% of the book. I liked the narrating duo and it made the book seem to fly by.

I loved the world building on this. This was an original plot that I haven't seen before and with the way that I read, that is saying something. Clarke - the female MC -awakens not knowing what has happened and she discovers that she has been encased in ice for 2000 years. Seriously - it works.
So anyway, there was a nuclear war and with that came a nuclear winter. The planet was pretty much destroyed but has come back slowly and with that came the emergence of magic. But, human nature being what it is, there are always bad guys. Clarke is the first human to have access to magic (manna) and the human race has evolved and resulted in the creation of the Fae - who all possess magic. That's the background.

Clarke is saved by a wolf Fae named Rush and the story is interesting and compelling. I enjoyed it from the beginning until the end. It is also the setup for the next couple of books because the big bad isn't thwarted but escapes. It appears that two of Clarke's best friends are the next "humans" to awaken in this timeline and each have a part in saving the world.

Can't wait.

2 hours left .. I couldn’t make it

Female narrator was killing me… everyone sounded whiny when she did the male lead voice he sounded like he couldn’t breathe and she started having a repetitive cadence that was making everything run together so I would get lost and have to go back… I just couldn’t take it any longer could’ve been a good one though

Meh..

I like to be entertained. The only part of the book I can recommend is the last 45 min. The rest of the book was bland and I found myself surfing FB and not really paying attention. I wanted to like this but unfortunately the story fell flat. I will say the cover art is fantastic.

Love this new world!

I have been let down by so many new fantasy books lately. I really enjoyed this story. The world is a bit post apocalyptic and a totally new take on the world of Fae. I still don’t fully understand all parts of it but I can’t wait to learn more of it.

Zachary Johnson is a new narrator for me and I loved him. I’m going to need him in so many more audios. He was so good. Amy Landon is always good and she did not disappoint.

I don’t want to give anything away. But these two were so perfectly suited for each other. Both fierce and strong with a bad past. They both want to do better.

There is a lot to do with fate and seers and the future. I just can’t wait to see each guardian find their blessed mate.

Good story

I love the story, excting. A good balance between the love and war. I just didn't like the female narrator, she made the male sound whining..

This book was hard work

This book started off average and went down hill from there. I nearly stopped listening several times as I simply didn’t care what happened, but pushed on for some reason. Won’t be listening to any more of this series.

Exciting new series

Clarke was part of destroying the world as we know it. Being frozen in the earth she wakes 2000 yrs later to find the remaining humans who have survived are now the enemy & Fae creatures have taken over the world.

Rush a Fae Guardian broke the laws & has been cursed where no body can see him & he is slowly dying. Only his Well blessed mate can save him. Rush comes upon Clarke being taken prisoner by a group of Fae & finds that she can see & hear him. They strike a bargain, he will save her from capture as long as she will be his voice to resolve some unfinished business.

From the very start I was hooked & binged it. I loved the world building, it was scattered slowly along the story. Lana has created a beautiful post apocalyptic world without the use metals or plastics, with Fae creatures, strong females & an array of villains from both sides.

I loved Clarke & Rush. They are such vulnerable loveable characters & loved seeing their relationship develop. I did find the ending a little rushed, but great start to exciting new series.

I read this initially & was so excited to also listen to the audio version. The narrators Amy Landon & Zachary Johnson did an amazing job bringing Rush & Clarke to life
