Great start to the series. Nexi is 1/2 witch and 1/2 guardian, completely unique in the "Otherworld", she finds out all this when her birth parents are murdered and her father comes to her rescue. I really liked Nexi, she had had the perfect combo of Kick Ass, snark, bravado and getting herself into situations she really should avoid. Kayden who is a guardian and was with her father when he rescued Nexi, spends quite a bit of time tracking Nexi down when she has run off (when she is not supposed to) and then becomes her trainer as she wants to be a council guardian. As they work together they both start to fall for each other.Once she has finished training, Nexi is set on revenge for the murder of her mother, and adoptive family and they find the werewolves and the vampire responsible and there is one hell of a show down.This was a fun (not the sad parts), and fast paced read and a wonderful start to this new series. I look forward to the next one. This book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley for an honest review.
