Betrayed by Ednah Walters Review


Lil has come to terms with her life as a Guardian/demon hunter and the wielder of the Nephilim most powerful weapon. She trains everyday to master her growing powers, gets along with her Guardian trainee friends (most of the time) and cherishes her moments with her human friends.

Just when she feels she belongs, her nature-bender father contacts her and warns her about a betrayal by someone close to her. Then Bran, the guy she loves, starts to act strange and one of her human friends acquires a supernatural ability. While Lil struggles find a connection between these three things, she begins to realize that someone is manipulating her and Bran, and will stop at nothing (including hurting those she loves) to lure them to the dark side.
My Review:
Have you ever dreaded reading a sequel because you liked the first book so much that you didn't want to be disappointed? Well, let me assure you that this is not a problem with this series!!!

I was so incredibly excited when my copy of Betrayed arrived in the mail. I started it immediately and I was not disappointed one bit.

Betrayed is a fantastic sequel. I tore through the 366 page book in less than twenty four hours, staying up until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. It felt amazing being back in the world Ednah created in the first book.

All of our beloved characters are back. Lil, the badass chosen one, Bran her evil-turned-good-winged boyfriend, Remy, Skyes, Kim, Izzy, all of the other guardians, including Lil's grandpa. And let's not forget Valafar!!! All of these characters are developed in this book, especially Lil and Bran. Lil becomes stronger phisically as well as mentally. She's one tough 16 year old! Bran is as dreamy and protective as ever. (#TeamBran!) It was agonizing when he started pulling away from Lil. I could feel her pain.

The book is action packed! Ednah writes some fantastic fight scenes! Heck, she writes fantastic scenes of any kind. The romantic parts are swoon worthy! I love the way the guardian trainees act around eachother. The character's dialog is great!

Here are some of my favorite lines:
"One caught your fancy?" "So many to love," he whispered, his gaze following another girl, "and so little time." "Man-whore," Kim said. "A proud card carrying member," he said absentmindedly, his eyes on another girl. "And I don't apologize for it."
"The way his heated eyes caressed my face left no doubt in anyone'smind he loved me."

And let's not forget the fact that someone has Betrayed Lil. I tried my hardest to figure out who it was before I found out. I was unsuccessful. Ednah keeps you on your toes, makes you suspect everyone, until she unveils the culprit. I didn't even think about this person. Ednah is good!!!

Last but not least, cover love!!! :) It's such a beautiful book to add to my shelf! I am eagerly awaiting book three Hunted!!!

If you enjoyed Awakened, the first book in The Guardian Legacy series, then you will love Betrayed even more! Get your copy today!


Happy Reading!
