Choices {Book Tour and Review}


Choices (The Guardian Trilogy)

Hearts break. Loved ones are lost. Life keeps moving.

Olivia Martin’s afterlife was more dangerous and confusing than her life ever was. She thought she was ready to come back, to forget about Holden and to let go of the rage consuming her. Fulfilling her destiny as a guardian was all that mattered—the past could stay hidden in the crevices of her mind. However, when guardians are murdered and the evidence points towards jinn, she has to do something. To save anyone’s future, Olivia will have to confront the one person from her past she is terrified to see.

Holden waited for Olivia with the hope he would see her one more time. But when she didn’t return, he found salvation in darkness. The black and twisted road made it easier to forget what he lost than to live with the memory of what he had. An unexpected promotion shoves him into a world of intoxicating power and influence. Holden will have to choose between his new life and the woman he thought was gone forever.

From the ashes of Secrets, Choices are born that will change everything.

My Review: I had a hard time in the first book Secrets at first trying to keep up with the story since it changes from 2 different character’s perspectives. Although it was my favorite part of the last Twilight book, I wasn’t used to Liz Shulte’s style of writing. By the 3rd chapter of the book I got used to it quickly and I was immediately hooked. This book Choices has three different characters perspectives but because I was already used to her style I caught on quickly. 

My favorite character, besides Olivia, is Holden. I love that even though he is a demon’s minion (jinni) he is still in touch with his humanity. I LOVE the triangle that has formed between Quintus, Olivia and Holden. The story revolves around loads of mystery and suspense….

1.Why is Juilet (Olivia’s best friend) a jinni? Who is working for?

2.Who is killing Guardians? Is it Holden? Quintus and Olivia are assigned to investigate. What will happen to Olivia if it is?

3.Can Holden and Olivia ever make their relationship work? I have to tell you I am rooting for them!!

4. Can Quintus help Olivia moved past her love for Holden, be the best Guardian she can be, while hiding his ever growing love for her?

5. What will happen when Olivia finds out Juliet’s alive?

One of the parts of the story that really cemented the love I have for Holden’s character is the way he was there for Olivia’s mom after the fall out of both Juliet’s and Olivia’s deaths. Not something you would expect from a Jinni but when has Holden done what’s expected?

What I was really impressed with in this book (Choices) and Secrets is the way Liz actually paints a picture of the story. You feel like an observer- you almost forget that you are reading a book. The characters are easily imagined, relatable and very vivid. I am hooked. This series has been a fabulous escape at night after a long day at work and mom-hood.

I, for one, am holding my breathe for the last book of this trilogy Consequences.
