The Guardians series

A-
Guardian Demon

I can't say I would happily die tomorrow, but if I did, I could rest a little easier in the knowledge that Michael from Meljean Brook's Guardian series finally got his well-deserved HEA, and that one of my favorite series ended on high note. Guardians are super-powered humans, conscrip ...

Demon Marked

Look up complex in the dictionary and one of the definitions will be "novels by Meljean Brook, esp the Guardian series." Ms. Brook can also be found in the thesaurus under antonyms for "brain candy."

Sometimes the problem with a great beginning is that the rest of the book has trouble living up to it. Such is the case with Meljean Brook’s debut single-title Demon Angel. The first few chapters had me eagerly turning the pages, hungry for more. But a number of weaknesses gradually lowered my imp ...
