Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts. Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him - and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

I've listened to one of her performances before and they're about the same. I always feel like there could be a little more improvement so that I can separate the characters a little more.
Harper, usually made me laugh with her antics and going over the situation she was now stuck in.
I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and a great set up for a series of books. I don't think I've read/listened to a book that is like this. I really like that Harper is the more "warrior" type of character instead of being the damsel in distress kind of girl. She knows she has to protect a certain person, but struggles with it and living her daily life. The end of the book was surprisingly great. I can't wait for the second one and will probably get it right away when it is released.
