"Couldn't stop reading! Page to page kept me on the edge of my seat...excellent ending!"
—Jaime Casada

"What an awesome book! Kept me in suspense the whole time. I cannot WAIT for the next one!"
—Sean Avent

"As an avid reader this book was one of the best I have read in a while. The story grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me reading until the end. Even when I thought I had it figured out, it still threw me for a loop at the end. The best combination of thriller and spiritual ever written. This one is definitely a must read!"
—Keisha Rock

Alex Nolan wants nothing more than to forget Saluda, North Carolina, and the devastation she suffered there. But when she is called back to the sleepy mountain town to reclaim her family home, she is forced to face her fears and the memories she has tried so desperately to suppress. When the same evil that murdered her family returns, Alex must learn to rely on her broken faith and the strength of her Guardian, Donovan, to survive. But there is a problem—Alex cannot see him. Donovan exists in a reality apart from Alex and her lack of belief limits their interactions to spoken words and fleeting glimpses. When nothing is what is seems and seeing is believing, can Alex open her mind enough to see before it's too late? Guardian is a heart-pounding story of loss and redemption with more unexpected twists and turns than a dark mountain highway.
