‘The Guardian, a Sword, & Stilettos’ (Enlighten Series, #1) by Kristin D. Van Risseghem

4 stars

Author Van Risseghem has brilliantly created a rich, supernatural world with angels, nephilim, fairies, werewolves, and various demons.

‘The Guardian, a Sword, & Stilettos’ Follows the story of Zoe, a typical 17-year-old high school girl, as she is introduced to the hidden world of supernatural beings.  She learns the people closest to her have been assigned to protect her from birth; as she will fulfill a prophecy on her 18th birthday.  She is the prophesied ‘Redeemer’ and her abilities will be critical in the upcoming war to keep the devil from ruling Earth.

I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 due to the injection of instalove and soulmates.  Granted, these characters are high school teenagers, but in a story about angels and demons and a plan set in motion by up-on-high, there’s no wiggle room for ‘emotional teenagers’ where instalove is concerned.  That being said, their clean romance was charming and cute.

Recommended for fans of YA fantasy and supernatural beings!
