Book Review: Bodyguards: QuickSilver Codex Book 1 by Kallysten

Bodyguards: QuickSilver Codex Book 1
by: Kallysten
Pages: 191
On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.

Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure out who she truly is.

As Vivien nears her twentieth birthday she is busing with college life and trying to get the attention of Brad. Brad is a student and her jogging partner but he seems so shy. Vivien finally gets the nerve to ask him out and is hurt when he turns her down. She decides that she doesn’t want anything to do with him and will start running on her own in a new place just to avoid him.

As she starts out on her new run she is attacked. Brad comes in to save her and she is shocked to see that he kills one of the men. Only it’s not Brad that comes to her rescue but rather his twin brother Aedan that she didn’t even know existed. The brothers tell her that she is a princess 
from another place and hiding on Earth. They are sworn to protect her. They tell her of her birth place, vampires and rulers and it just doesn’t seem real. 

Great new series! Anything is possible with magic and new worlds. This book is filled with all those things that I would like to experience. Sweet romance intermixed with danger keeps you turning the pages for more. A definite keep read for this series.

About the Author:
Kallysten is a writer of romance novels and short stories, most of them with paranormal elements.

Her first eBooks were published by Linden Bay Romance in 2005. The defunct Venus Press subsequently published a few of her short stories. Because so many of her stories are linked as series and part of the same universe, she decided it would make sense to have them all in the same place, which is why she self-published, first with the co-op Alinar Publishing and now on her own. When she sees calls for submissions that speak to her muse, she sometimes tries for them, and was published this way by Samhain and Torquere.
