Spotlight: The Guardians by Meljean Brook

I forget where I read someone say that Meljean Brook's Guardians series is like a mix of the X-Men comics and vampire romance. The gorgeous covers certainly hinted at some winged bad-ass-ery but I wasn't too sure I'd agree with the X-Men description. I am admitting to the ultimate in dorkery here but I was part of an X-Men fan-fic type writing group for several years. With that in mind I can be a little nerdy for some superpowered heroes and heroines. Even now I am cringing that I typed that. Resisting strong urge to press backspace.

*winces and continues*

Now, I am only partially through the first book in the Guardians series, Demon Angel. I really should have started with the prequel story from the Hot Spell anthology but having had bad experiences with that I decided to wait. That and I knew I would get side tracked with the other stories in it. Not to worry, I shall devour it eventually. ;) But I am getting derailed already! What I wanted to say is that I don't think I see the X-Men comparison at all. There's definitely some angels versus demons with some blood sucking freaks just not sure about the rest.

For the sake of preparing us for Meljean's guestpost I thought I would put up a series list for The Guardians and stress that I am following her version since she thinks of series the way I do... with novellas from anthologies as ".5" versions instead of full on series entries. It wasn't until I was viewing her list over at her websit—meljeanbrook.com—that I even realized I had technically read one of the novellas that is part of The Guardians series. I'm gonna have to go see what I thought of it now. LOL She also has a Guardians Primer on her site which I found very informative and helped clear up some confusion I had.

Hope you will enjoy darlings! And don't forget to check back later this week for the guestpost and be sure to pick up The Iron Duke ASAP. Seriously. It's just F'n awesome. With a capital F. -- Rhi
