The Guardian, a Sword, & Stilettos (The Enlight Series Book One) by Kristin D. Van Risseghem ~ Book Review

Book Description: 

Zoe Jabril could be just another 17-year-old girl attending parties with her friends and checking out cute guys—except her best friend is a Guardian Angel, and the boy she crushes on is a Nephilim, half-angel, both sent to Earth to protect her. A high school classmate happens to be a trendsetting shopaholic fairy. And now there’s a new werewolf in town.

Zoe has to deal with her feelings toward Shay, who spreads a strange electrical current through her body every time he touches her. Now Zoe is under constant attack from demons, trying to kill and stop her from fulfilling the Prophecy: a girl will be born who will unite the Enlightens to battle evil. Then on top of that, between boring homework and drama with girls at school, she has to control new found talents if she’s to prevent the devil from escaping Hell.

In order to do so, Zoe must devise a kick-ass plan ASAP or watch everyone die, because she’s running out of time. She turns eighteen in two months—the date Armageddon kicks off.

Author Bio:

Kristin D. Van Risseghem grew up in a small town along the Mississippi River with her parents and older sister. And after receiving a double Bachelor of Science degree from Winona State University in Paralegal and Corrections, she worked as a Paralegal for various law firms around the Twin Cities for 14 years. Then she left the legal field and is now a Senior Buyer for a technology company.

Currently, Kristin lives in Minnesota with her husband and two Calico cats. She also loves attending book clubs, going shopping, and hanging out with friends. She has come to realize that she absolutely has an addiction to purses and shoes. They are her weakness and probably has way too many of both.

In the summer months, Kristin can usually be found lounging on her boat, drinking an ice cold something. Being an avid reader of YA and Women’s Literature stories, she still finds time to read a ton of books in-between writing. And in the winter months, her main goal is to stay warm from the Minnesota cold!

Kristin’s books are published by Kasian Publishing.

I really enjoyed this paranormal fantasy YA book, it was on the lines of a coming of age with Zoe finding out when she turns eighteen she may be the Prophecy and will have to save the world from the Satan. Angels, half human/angels, fairies & a werewolf all play roles in protecting Zoe throughout this book. I love how easily the author incorporated each character into the "normal" teenage life that Zoe didn't even have any idea who these people really were. Throw in some demons and a romance and this book has it all in the paranormal genre.

The characters are easy to like and feel connected with, while the story moves along at a nice steady pace. I couldn't put down this series as I really wanted to find out what would happen next. 

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I look forward to the rest of the series.
