5* #Bookreview of ANGEL’S GUARDIAN by Zeece Lugo


The vampire Maxim makes his home in New York City. Self-exiled from the vampire nation, he spends his days in quiet solitude and his nights prowling the heights and hunting evil, his prey of choice. On a cold, November night, he chances upon a gang rape in a desolate back alley. He leaps at the chance to feed on predators of the worst kind, his favorite prey. But the situation takes a turn he never expected, and soon he finds himself wishing he’d made a different choice on that fateful night.

Angelica has been on the run for years. Kidnapped by a sex-trafficking ring at the age of fourteen, she escaped only to be relentlessly pursued by her enemies ever since. Tonight, they found her. As she lies dying on a cold, dark alley, her only fear is for the secret she desperately hid moments before they caught her. A secret she must protect with her life from her enemies and from the monster that destroyed them and now turns red, fiery eyes upon her.


I’ve always been a sucker for a Beauty & the Beast storyline, especially if it’s well-written.  This book did not disappoint.  I absolutely loved it.  Of course, it helps that I’m a fan of Zeece’s stories.  If you haven’t tried her Daniel’s Fork  series, you must give them a read.  PNR is a new genre for her and she did an outstanding job. 

Once again, Zeece’s characters come alive on the pages, well, screen.  The story starts out dark, as we’re introduced to Max whose witnessing a brutal assault on a young woman.  What he didn’t expect was this chance encounter would change his whole existence.  Suddenly, he finds himself burdened with an injured woman, a baby, and a young girl, Nina.  I just adored Nina.  She stole so many scenes in this story.

My favorite part of the book was when Nina was trying to get Max to change her brother’s poop filled diapers.  We all know men who cringe at the thought of changing nose-hair scorching, stinking diapers.  I laughed at Max’s revulsion and then his solution to the problem. 

There are two plots intertwined together.  Angel is running from the man who kidnapped her for his sex trade, and Max is running away from his family obligations and duty to vampire kingdom.  The story moves at a good clip, especially when Jonathan is being tortured and Angel is being tracked down by her ruthless enemy.  I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. 

I originally read a beta version of the story and the ending was sort of abrupt.  Zeece has since added to the story which has given more depth to Max and Angel’s relationship.  I approve. 

This is the first book in a series, and I can’t wait to read more about Max and Angel.  And don’t forget little Nina.  If you love vampires with a different slant, I highly recommend this book.  I give it a well-deserved 5 bat wings.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.

  1. Good review, I’m not a vampire book fan but this review sounds like it is an interesting tale.
