The Fae Guard series has held a piece of my heart since the beginning, but Kendrix, sigh, completely stole what was left of it.
I recommend reading the series from the beginning because it's that good. It will also give you more background info on Fae and Fallen.
Saving Kendrix is book 5 of the series. I can honestly say my favorite as well. I loved the others, but the tragic hero takes the cake.
Kendrix is given the choice become Fallen to help save the Fae or live knowing he didn't. Not such a hard decision on paper, but Kendrix has to make it. Give up his life, his family, his friends, and the job he loves...and become a Fallen in return. Be forced to live in t he shadows, to never live in the light again.
He makes the decision to save all he loves by becoming the enemy. He will do this job and try not to let the evil consume him.
It was an easy decisions, until he realizes that this "job" is his fated.
He finds his eternal partner only to have to give her up- if he completes the task Fate gave him.
The struggle between good and evil will always live on. Right now, Kendrix's biggest problem is trying to fight the internal battle.
Good means giving up his love for all Fae. He has to give her up and live forever without her. Knowing she will live a pure life, but that he will never be a part of it.
Evil would be the selfish need to take her and run. To live life in the arms of his love...
His struggle, her future, and those of all the Fae are intertwined.
I am not ashamed to say I cried and felt ever drop of pain and remorse that is in this book. My heart went out to Fate and her pain in asking this of a friend. It was decimated by Kendrix's pain and losses. Author Elle Christensen made sure to leave me a spotty mess. It's a beautiful story. I loved it and I look forward to Fate's story next.
