Lizeria never expected that she would one day be all that was left of her mother's once powerful empire. Fleeing from the carnage and wreckage of the only home she has ever know she begins her journey of discovery only to learn that some secrets are best left uncovered.

Accompanied by a dwarf she rescued the unlikely pair attempts to outrun the wizards hot on her tail. Hell bent on preventing the wizards from taking over Lizeria will face many obstacles and be forced to make choices she's never imagined starting with the sexy and irresistible Alexander Rey.



Alexander knows that helping Lizeria is the beginning of monumental changes in their lives. Teaching Lizeria about her birthright and the power of the Blackstones is a challenge he refuses to fail at. She will have to trust him and embrace her destiny. Even though he hides secrets of his own, he knows she has always been meant for him. Together they will travel; a path riddled with danger and together they will unleash the power that resides within Lizeria, but at what cost?



This second installment of Ms. Gilfoy's New Pangaea Series is as engaging as its predecessor, MASQUERADE OF THE CURSED KING, and left this reader wanting more the second I was finished.



GUARDIAN OF THE ONYX EMPIRE slowly removes more layers from the vast world of New Pangaea and while it may have left me with more questions than answers it still managed to hold me in its grip. As you journey with Alexander and Lizeria you begin to understand how each tale will hold a key to the final outcome of this series.



Ms. Gilfoy's witty dialogue coupled with characters I could respect and genuinely like made it all the more difficult to leave this world when the novel reached its completion. Alex and Lizeria are strong and yet have vulnerabilities that humanize them for the reader, leaving you feeling as though you've just made new friends. Their secrets run deep and while GUARDIAN OF THE ONYX EMPIRE is not your typical HEA I have faith that I will be seeing Alex and Lizeria again in future works form Ms. Gilfoy.



All in all GUARDIAN OF THE ONYX EMPIRE is a welcome addition to any paranormal lovers collection and one I am sure I will enjoy again and again.
