Clean Out Your eReader Book Review: Guardian of the Abyss

Guardian of the AbyssGuardian of the Abyss, by Shannon Phoenix

When deep sea diver Sarah’s business partner and best friend stages an accident and leaves her for dead, she is rescued by a being that shouldn’t exist. Abaddon, a gorgoyle condemned to eternity trapped in a cave beneath the sea, takes extreme measures to save her life, but what should have been a curse to her becomes a great blessing.

A novella set in the author’s Supernaturals paranormal world, Guardian of the Abyss is a lovely little romance, about redemption and hope. I enjoyed the characters of Sarah and Abaddon and really cared about what happened to them. The desperation of their circumstances trapped in a cave at the bottom of the ocean was well-written, and I was anxious to find out if they made it out ok.

I haven’t read any other books in this series, but I was able to keep up with the story; the background and other important information is conveyed without info-dumping. I did start to get confused when a bunch of other characters, vampires, werewolves, and other gargoyles came on the scene, but the story soon went back to the main characters.

Highly recommended if you enjoy paranormal romance or want to try dipping your toe into the genre.
