The Guardian, a Sword, & Stilettos

We rated this book:


I’ve been sitting around wondering how I was going to put into words how I feel about The Guardian, a Sword, & Stilettos. If truth be told, none of those words are good. I feel as if I’ve been hit with a freight train…over and over again. If there’s anything I hate more in books, it’s shallow and underdeveloped characters. I knew from the very first page that it would be hard to stomach the likes of the main character, Zoe. But, I trudged on, because there’s only one way for Zoe to go, and that’s up. Sadly, by the end of the story, I think I hated her even more. Hate may be too strong a word, but I strongly disliked her. The main plot of the story is that she is prophesied to win a war to end evil. I would have loved this if I hadn’t already read it a million other times. Then, the romance; if you could call it that. Her best friend slash guardian angel of sorts, is desperately in love with her. What would the book be without a one sided love triangle though? Bad boy and half angel, Shay, comes into town and bam! Insta-love. That’s strike three. Overall, I cant recommend anyone read a book that has no characters to love, and one that’s unoriginal on top of everything else.
