Dream-Hunter Lydia has been charged with the most sacred and dangerous of missions: To descend into the Nether Realm and find the missing god of dreams before he betrays the secrets that could kill her and her kind. What she never expects is to be taken prisoner by the Realm’s most vicious guardian….
Seth’s time is running out. If he can’t hand over the entrance to Olympus, his own life and those of his people will be forfeit. No matter the torture, Seth hasn’t been able to break the god in his custody. Then there’s the beautiful Dream-Hunter Lydia: She isn’t just guarding the gates of Olympus—she’s holding back one of the world’s darkest powers. If she fails, an ancient curse will haunt the earth once more and no one will be safe. But evil is always seductive....

Retired USN! I enjoy movies, books, traveling and making quilts.
Fred Berman has a knack for bring stories to life. The emotions and voices changes are awsome. Ms. Kenyon is a wonderful writer, I find myself waiting for the next book.
I love all of Ms. Kenyon's books in her Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter series. She is the queen of fantasy. I also like the people who are choosen to narrate. The best voices are Fred Berman and Holter Grahamm. Audio books are not just great for listening to while in the car. I enjoy listening while cleaning the house and cooking.
This is true Sherrilyn, if you are not a fan this will make you a fan. This will make you cry for the hero, smile when he feel joy when he find out someone truly love him.
The guardian was a great addition to the series although you don't really need to follow the Dream Hunter books to understand it. I am a fan of all of Kenyon's series' and would put this one in the top 10 of all of them. It's a story about trust and finding yourself. It's a battle between listening to your brain or your heart. While shorter than I would have preferred it is worth your time and credit.
I have been an avid reader/listener of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books (series) for sometime now and each time she surprises me with the depth of the characters and her continuing ability to bring the existing story, and the ongoing sagas to life.
The Guardian did not disappoint. The emotions expressed are both heart fealt and intense...of course with the help of Fred Berman. Fred's voice brings to life everything I believe Sherrilyn is trying to convey, and his characterization is fantastic.
In short, whether you have read the previous books in this series, this book is excellent as as stand alone, as well as a continuation of the series.
Listen to the Guardian and you will see why I return to her books over and over again.
The story is outstanding but the narrator makes if almost impossible to hear him when driving. He insists upon whispering - literally- though most of the dialogue. I missed half of the book because I was driving and couldn't keep turning the sound up and down. Ever-so-annoying!!!!!
STOP WHISPERING!! Just read the book!
