Publisher's Summary

A telephone ringing in the dead of night signals the beginning of a journey into fear as MaryAnne Carpenter hears the shocking news: her friends the Wilkensons are suddenly, inexplicably dead, their only child, MaryAnne's godchild, abruptly orphaned and dependent on her.

Even as MaryAnne rushes to embrace her young charge, the disturbing questions mount. Was it a tragic mishap that took their lives - or murder?

As winter closes in on the majestic ranch where the young family lives, the darkness and danger of nature and the unimaginable evil around them seem to work in tandem. An insatiable and brutal killer is closer than they could ever have imagined.

Not my typical book type. Also SPOILER ALERT

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Not exactly the type of book I thought I was buying. Still, it wasn't too bad. If you like all types of books then you will like this one. I was thinking this was more of a ghost story, which is NOT.

Would you recommend Guardian to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Not my thing. I'm not into this type of book.

What three words best describe David Regal’s voice?

No issues here.

Any additional comments?

You really have to have an open mind and not be just stuck on a certain type of story otherwise, you will not be happy with this book. I figured it out pretty quick and was not impressed. I still listened to the entire book though, it kept my mind occupied for several hours. If you don't mind listening to stories which include people being eaten, then you'll be ok with this book. Personally I don't like that (gross), but the book isn't just about that. Also someone does die whom I didn't expect and that really blew.
