Review: Survival (The Guardians of Vesturon Series Book #1) by A.M.Hargrove

image When love does not know any boundaries we get to know it once we read this book. It is divided into four parts. In the beginning we read about the life of Maddie, her experiences loosing both of her parents in a young age-now in college trying to do her best with the help of her friend Cathy. She loves the outdoors and hiking in the mountains, until one christmas day where she decides to go backpacking alone through the mountains and gets surprised by a trekker with evil thoughts of hunting.The run begins between life and deaths, she gets so badly injured that she isn’t able to reach for help on her own.First it was a little confusing and I couldn’t understand why we need to relive the moments before Maddies abduction and afterwards her waking times in the caves of the Nunne’hi.Then it made sense, to get a more wider picture of all characters within the story and how they were involved in all of it. Also would the story only be told in the view of Maddie, we wouldn’t be able to get a glimpse of what life is like to be a true Vesturion.We wouldn’t be able to understand how she got rescued by none other than the guardians of Vesturon, instead of some paranormal miracle, I first thought of. As life cannot become more complicated Maddie falls in love with one of them, Rayn and it doesn’t seem that the love between them is one sided.
It’s a taboo to transport a human to the planet Vesturon and it is highly punished.Rayn is awaiting his court trial on Vesturon while Maddie is going on with her life down on earth. After both of them have sworn their love to each other, will they be able to see each other, how many tests need to be succeeded so their life together can start.

That is some paranormal romance story between Madeleine aka Maddie Pearce and Rayn who happens to be a humanish acting alien, though differing in both psychological and physical abilities of normal human beings. He is from the planet Vesturon, and is one of the guardians who were stationed around the globe.

It is a lovely story with its ups and downs. I liked the story, though at some points of the story my attention was lowered. I cared more for Maddies part of the story then i cared for the other characters like Rayn and his brothers. I liked the way how the love philosophy of Vesturon is presented, that a shared love is a commitment that needs to be treated with respect like an official statement and is not treated as commonplace.It is one good novel for young adults to lay some foundation of how love should be treated.
I wanted more Maddie inside the story.
But that doesn’t keep me away from the 2nd installment of the series,which i will follow up to read.

Overall rating 3 / 5.
