The Brotherhood of the Guardians has existed for thousands of years to serve a single purpose: the protection of Talents, the mortal descendants of the original nine Muses.
Twenty-one year-old Daniel Lyoncourt has trained his entire life to join the Guardians. Daniel is prepared to risk his life in order to keep his Talent safe, but when he's assigned to nineteen year-old Anna Saint-James, he discovers that his life isn't the only thing he could lose. Anna has no idea how special she is and knows nothing about her abilities. He must teach her to control her gifts, keep her safe, and hope that he can find a place in her life as something more than just her bodyguard.
All power comes at a price. Like all Talents, Anna must one day make a choice: lose all of her powers, or ascend to a higher plane, leaving behind everyone she loves.
“Today we'll work on focus and control. I want you to be able to pick out a specific person to Influence and not affect the entire room and to be able to shut it off when you don't consciously need it. It's okay to just let it flow when you're in creative settings like this, where you want the entire project to flow well and for people to collaborate and feed off each other. We don't want people to start spontaneously performing show tune
medleys every time you go to a Walmart, though.”
I almost snorted my orange juice through my nose, enjoying the visual of people in blue smocks belting out, “The Phantom of the Opera” too much.
When I first started this book I wasn't sure what to think about it. It started out kind of slow but picked up after the first chapter and it turned out really good. I enjoyed watching the characters learn and grow. A lot happened in just the first four or five chapters and they seemed a little rushed. But otherwise it was a great book and I would highly recommend it to everybody!
