Six handsome hunky time travelling Warriors working for the Fae battling evil and saving realms then moving on to the next evil threat. This was a delicious start to DG's new paranormal series that had fast paced action, mystery, magic, a murdering demon, romance, sex, love, evil siblings, a few twists - and all this was intertwined with the 'oh, who is it?' basis of the storyline that keeps you guessing..... and your earphones glued in.
Great characters, Hugh the leader of The Shields is instantly attracted to Mina however they were there to do a job and so he tried to fight his attraction to the lovely Mina but, of course, he failed. However, her family had really done a great job in tormenting her through the years so her self-worth was at zero but despite that she started to believe him. Hugh had been deceived before by love and just couldn't trust her and this played a big part in the story which, unfortunately, became repetitive and a bit annoying coupled with Mina's constant low self esteem issues sadly lost this otherwise exciting listen a point from me.
Worth a credit? Now we've met the characters, learned some of the who, what's and whys of The Shields the foundation has been set and I can't wait to discover what imaginative supernatural story-lines DG will conjure up for us in her forthcoming books as she adds and subtracts the Warriors in the series. Sorry, back to the worth a credit question - well that should of been easily answered by my review - an absolute YES.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I think there are many people that might like this book. For me it was like a B movie. The dialogue seemed forced for lack of a better term.
Would you recommend A Dark Guardian to your friends? Why or why not?
No. I seldom recommend books that are less than a 4 or 4 1/2 and or I have listened to multiple times.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Antony Ferguson?
He was fine with the male voices but not the female voices. He seemed very robotic too. I am not sure for a narrator.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I did finish it and the ending was happy so, there is that.....
Any additional comments?
I gave the story 3 even though it was not near as good as other 3s because I finished it, so I didn't want to give it 2s across.

Any additional comments?
this one of my favourite reads this year, from the minute i tu7rned the book on i read it til the end and finished in only a few days. the charactors are varied and well defined and the relationships between charactors fully formed. i found that fact that you only learn small bits of the shields history intreaging and a real twist on the fnatays gondra.
