Book Review: The Girl by Lola St. Vil

The Girl (Guardians #1) by Lola St. Vil
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: January 1, 2012
Publisher: Self

Emmy - a bookish, witty student - is rescued by six teenaged angels with powers, called Guardians. They've been sent to elicit the secret from her before the demons can. Emmy later learns that her name is the only clue to locating a sought-after bridge that for centuries, Evil has plotted to destroy; this would in turn bring about the end of humanity. 

Things get worse when Emmy falls madly in love with Marcus, the well-intentioned but obstinate leader of the Guardians. He eventually confesses that he is in love with her as well. Unfortunately, Marcus has been warned by his clairvoyant and omniscient guide that should he and Emmy get together, the mission will fail and humanity will perish.

The Girl is the first book in The Guardian series by Lola St. Vil. The action starts early and doesn't stop through most of the book. Whether they are fighting with enemies or each other, the book grabbed my attention and wouldn't let go. The romance within this book isn't your typical romance either. Emmy falls for Marcus, but she can't have him. He's not only with someone else, but there are other strings attached as well. Emmy has a lot put on her shoulders too. She's not only responsible for saving the world, but she could be responsible for ending it. There was so much detail and care put into the creation of this book. You can tell the author really thought things out. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of this series!

Lola was seven when she first came to this country from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She attended Columbia College in Chicago, where her main focus was creative writing. In addition to plays, she also writes screenplays and short stories.
