#BookReview – “Guardian” by Angela Knight


Riane Arvid is a superhuman cop from the future, trapped in the year 2009 by group of murderous fanatics called the Xeran.
Nick Wyatt is a handsome twenty-first century warrior who has been a target of the Xeran his entire life. He's the only one Riane can turn to, but his intentions are as mysterious as his origins. In an attempt to discover the truth about each other, both Riane and Nick decide seduction is the best tactic.


In the second book in the Time Hunters series, genetically bred machine-like warriors, Warlords and Warfem (men and women respectively), come from the planet Vardon in the 23rd century. Other than warring with the vicious Xerans, they police time travel to protect the people in the past, the present, and the future. The Warlords/Warfems rely on their computer and sensory implants to do their jobs, which makes them tougher and smarter than most normal humans.
Warfem and Temporal Enforcer Riane Arvid and her genetically enhanced wolf partner Frieka are sent out on a mission when Riane’s specialized T-suit malfunctions and she’s sent spiraling through time. She winds up in the year 2009 and meets a strange, powerful man who’s more than just human. He’s part Xeran, but the kind, protective man is nothing like the murderous Xeran she knows.
Nick Wyatt has been running from the Xerans all his life, and he doesn’t know why they killed his mother and wants to kill him. He has powers he doesn’t understand, but he uses them to help other people. Then he saves Riane from a Xeran attack, and though she doesn’t trust him at first, he knows she’s the only person who can answer his questions. As they get to know one another and the truth comes out, Nick’s life and everything he’s ever known changes forever.
I loved this story! Riane and Nick have great chemistry. Their love bloomed from mutual trust and respect, and they didn’t really fight the connection between them despite the odds of their relationship lasting.
The side plots with the secondary characters (Frieka, Dona, Dyami, Galar, and Jess) continue the overall series arc about who’s the traitor in the Outpost, which added more depth to the story.
There’s more information about the Sela aliens and the T’lir artifact (it’s a power source), and the questions I had from the previous story were answered.
The sex scenes are super hot but not very long as in the other books. This book seemed to focus more on the H/h’s emotions and the problems they and their friends must face, instead of the H/h having sex at the most inopportune times.
Anyway, I enjoyed this book a lot, and it’s my favorite of the series.
5 Stars
