#Giveaway: 2 Copies of Meljean Brook’s Guardian Series

I’ve always been fascinated by Meljean Brook’s path to publication. I had read her blog for at least a year (if not longer) before she published. Meljean has a quirky, funny, self deprecating voice on her blog but to my surprise that’s not what her books ended up sounding like. They were lush, erotic, challenging stories that were writ on a grand scale.

Here we are at the conclusion of the Guardian series. Through this series we’ve seen angels fall, vampires created, and demons fall in love. We’ve waited for a long time for the conclusion of how Michael, the leader of the Guardians, will reclaim his soul from hell and finally close the gates that Lucifer and others want open between the otherworlds and earth.

I saw on Goodreads, one reader post a picture in anticipation of the final book with the words “Come to me.” ¬†She took it down but it was a squirrel with outstretched arms. It perfectly captured my feelings as well.

Squirrel want

When I sat down to read it, I had some sense of foreboding. So much build up, how could it ever deliver? But it did, in spades. What was strange was although this was a really long book (over 200,000 words, I think) it didn’t feel long and at the last page, I felt like I could have read another 100,000 words. I wasn’t ready to leave this world and all the beings I had come to care about.

The problem with introducing new readers to this series is that it takes an investment of time and money. We can’t give you time, but we can ameliorate the money aspect in two ways. First, Meljean has a “Story So Far” primer which provides a summary of events in each book. (I love this and wish other authors would do this) You can read the summaries and then buy Book 8, Guardian Demon, when it releases next week. Or, you can enter to win the contest for the entire backlist, signed by Meljean Brook. Or you can do both.

Guardian Demon Meljean Brook

Is this a book I’d recommend you read? Yes, but not without having read the primer first. Or set aside some time to read the entire series. I wouldn’t jump into Guardian Demon without having read something about the events leading up to it because even though Meljean does a fair job of providing backstory, it really is the conclusion to a long standing series.

    I’ve gobbled up every single Iron Seas book but I haven’t yet read the Guardian books because…well, I don’t know why. I think because I love the IS books so much and I wasn’t sure that I could do a subgenre hop. Given all the praise I’ve seen of late, though, I clearly need to read them.

    I love the Iron Seas series but somehow haven’t read any of the Guardian books. Maybe it’s time to remedy that.

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 10:17:16

    I read The Iron Duke last year and wasn’t instantly blown away but liked it well enough to try the second in the series, Heart of Steel, which did blow me away and I decided to read everything by her. I read the Guardian series this spring. If I had done my research I might have waited since being forced to wait for the final piece after glomming the others in a short time.

    I like some of the books much more than others, depending mostly on how much I enjoy the main couple. But Michael has been a favourite since the beginning so I’m eagerly waiting his book. FINALLY!

    It’ll finally come out? Oh, it’s such a good summer – we get new Kate Daniels and the final Guardians and in autumn a new Elantra book. I love series that deliver! I hope there’ll be a new World of the Lupi book this year as well.

    I love the Iron Seas series but haven’t read the Guardian books yet, partly because of the series length and partly because of the cost. My book budget has been cut to the bare minimum…sob! I would love to read this series.

  19. Rebe
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 10:48:38

    I love how complex this series is. I think Demon Marked (book 7) is a great entry book to the series if you haven’t read any of the others. I’d actually encourage people new to the series to start with that book or book 2, Demon Moon, before reading the first book, as it’s not the easiest entry point.

  20. CG
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 10:51:48

    Cannot wait for this book! Have already read the other books in the series, but it’s been a while so I’m thankful for the primer as my memory isn’t what it used to be.

    I haven’t had the chance to read Meljean Brook yet. I have on my kindle a novella from the Iron Seas series but I keep telling myself that I won’t start on the series until I have all the books that are out so far. I tell myself the same thing about this series but I keep waiting for either the books to go on discount or to win them in giveaways. I haven’t really read about angels so I would be really interested in reading this series.

  23. Christine
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 10:54:53

    I’ve enjoyed the Iron Seas books of hers I have read very much. I was interested in the Guardian series but was a little daunted by the amount of reading involved to “catch up.” It’s nice to hear that it’s well reviewed and recommended.

  24. Jacqueline
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 10:55:34

    I love this series so far! I’ve read most of the novellas along with Demon Angel and Demon Marked. Right now, I’m working on Demon Night. I’d love to win the entire set since all of my reading has been of borrowed copies thus far, with the exception of Demon Angel and the novella in Must Love Hellhounds.

  25. Timitra
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 10:55:51

    The second paragraph of this post is why I want to read this series…sounds epically good! Also I’ve heard great things about the author…thanks for the chance to win copies of this series!

    I love Meljean’s voice. Her Iron Seas series has me fascinated. However, I confess that, even though I love “Falling for Anthony” (the short story prequel to the Guardian series), I found it very difficult to get into Demon Angel. I want to recapture my enthusiasm for this series, and you guys make it so very tempting.

  30. Christine M.
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:16:20

    *crosses fingers* I love Meljean’s voice, too. The Guardian series I always thought looked very intimidating. Now that it’s complete, I’ll have to pick it up. If I can get it for free, all the better! :D

  31. Jessica
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:20:34

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:27:37

    I’ve loved one of her Iron Seas novels and one novella and I keep wondering if I should check out this series, but I’m intimidated with how many I’d have to buy! My library sucks.

  34. Jen
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:31:56

    I have been eyeing this series for a while now after I was introduced to Brook with Riveted. (Truly that is one of my top 3 favorite romances ever.) I love Brook’s world building and characters, and I’d love to try this series too.

  35. Nicola W
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:39:53

    Guardian Series if excellent. I’d recommend it to anyone, even though I found it difficult to get into the first book, it was well worth persisting with in the end, and I didn’t have any problems getting into the following books at all. I’ve loved reading them and can’t wait for the last one.

  36. Amanda

    All the good things I’ve heard about the series. I have trouble reading series and haven’t gotten around to starting this one, but knowing that the last book is awesome helps a lot.

  38. Collette
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:44:26

    I started this series then something stopped me although I have 2 more of the books I think. It was so lush and dense I had to be in the right frame for it. I loved the prose but maybe it wasn’t the right time for me. Maybe my brain will be more equipped for it this time. I’d like to restart the series at the beginning.

    I was just strongly urged to read this series earlier this week! I would love a chance to win it. The angels, vamps, and demons are right up my alley!

  40. AH@badassbookreviews
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:50:45

    I’ve always wanted to read this series. I’ve read Ms. Brook’s Iron Seas series and love her writing, so any opportunity to read her Guardian series would be great.

  41. Jenna
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 11:52:03

    I have her on my ridiculously long to-read list. I’m sad to hear that the story wrapped up before I could get to it but glad that it finished on a high note.

  54. Deljah
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 13:22:05

    I’ve seen this series recommended here and around the web. I would love to try it since PNR is one of my favorite genres.

    Other than that the cover is sexy? Ok, lol. I have read her steampunk series and they are just so cool. But this one for some reason has flown under the radar and I am intrigued

  59. Rebecca
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 13:44:00

    I’ve heard great things but haven’t tried these books. Would love a free copy!

  60. Jules
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 14:10:03

    This sounds like an awesome opportunity!! I read and really liked The Iron Duke. Her voice was one that just sucks you in. I have yet to get around to any of the other books, but that is something I must rectify soon.

    That said, these sound SOOO interesting! I want to start reading them and be sucked in to a series that is completed (whoot!) as well as entertaining.

    Thanks for hosting this!

  63. Liviania
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 14:40:31

    I’ve been meaning to read this forever, since I like her other books. Seems like now is the perfect time.

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 15:07:49

    I have been meaning to read these for ages! The Iron Duke was so good, but my library is rather Meljean Brook deficient and I can’t afford to buy all of them :( it would be much easier if they were all just sittin on my own bookshelf :)

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 15:11:44

    I’ve dabbled with Meljean’s Iron Seas series and really liked them, but feel like the kid who didn’t get the invite to the party by missing on the Guardians series. Knowing that there were so many books in the series to cover before the most recent, I’ve been hesitant to start …. but this could be the catalyst to do so!
    Thanks for the chance to enter!

  76. TrishJ

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:06:56

    I read the first book when someone recommended it (probably when it first came out), and was surprised at how much I liked it. But I don’t remember details, so didn’t feel like reading the second book without reading the first. And I never did. Now that all the books are out, I can tackle the whole series.

  78. Maree Anderson
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:07:56

    OMG! *fans herself wildly* I LOVE Meljean’s writing. And please, don’t let the pretty pink cover of Demon Angel (Book 1 of the Guardians series) put you off. The contents totally belie the cover — soooo worth it. Man, I’d love to win this. My inner fan-girl is hyperventilating at the thought of signed copies! And Nalini’s been telling me how great this final installment is :)

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:16:33

    I first found Meljean Brooks through the iron series. She somehow always seems to write about something I either want to see in a book or am interested in as a subject. It does help that she is really good at it!

  81. Chelsea B.

    Ack. I think I may have entered multiple times in Rafflecopter as it wasn’t showing that I’d entered at first. Sorry, Jane! The excitement got to me. (This is what happens when you offer a Meljean giveaway….)

  83. Carol F.
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:18:03

    Meljean Brooks’ Iron Seas series has been an auto-buy for me ever since the first one came out, but I never got the chance to really pick up and get into her Guardian series because, to be honest, it was hard to find the first books and difficult to follow just jumping in the middle. I’m so glad you’re doing this! Her writing style is just absolutely lovely and casual at the same time.

  84. Kristi
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:25:03

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:35:30

    Eek. I didn’t leave a comment and now can’t edit. My comment is just that I have read the Iron Seas but not the Guardian series. For some reason it has flown below my radar.

  87. Angela G
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 16:59:18

    I love her Iron Seas series, and I really do need to start her Gaurdian series. I enjoyed the short stories in the compilation books. The whole backlist would certainly give me the impetus to begin!

  88. Kathryn

    I love the characters in the sereies; the core of the characters are strong, though they are often tested (or tormented) by what is perceived as truth and what is not, and what is the appropriate step to take. But through it all, there is a HEA!!!

    I am one of those people who have to read a series in order. So, I have not started the Guardian series due to not having the money to purchase books 1-7. I would love to win this set.
    Thank you for the great giveaway.

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 18:39:19

    Thanks so much for the chance to win these books. I’ve been a fan of Ms Brook’s writing for a long time. Her writing is intelligent, above all. The worlds she has created are so real that it can be ages between readings in these worlds and I still remember the details of them, how they work, who’s in charge and so on. Wonderful stuff.

    I have loved the Guardian series since the very first book. While I completely understand recommendations to start with book 3, I started with number 1 and could not put it down. The presentation of the different races (guardians, demons, vampires) have always been shown as flawed – not every guardian does the right thing all the time, not every demon is completely evil. I love the chance everyone has for redemption and that there are multiple motives behind every move. You can be selfish and do the right thing at the same time, nothing is cut and dry!

    I love all of Meljean’s books! I love the way she writes, I love the characters, I love the drama, I love the humor, I love the romance, I love the action, I love everything! I’m so excited for Guardian Demon. I just finished rereading the series earlier this month. I can’t wait!

    Like everyone else, I loved her Iron Seas books; but I’ve been hesitant to jump into another long series.

    I came across this series after reading a novella in an anthology – got hooked, and borrowed the rest of the series from the library, but didn’t read them in order. I think what I enjoy most about the characters, in particular the main protagonists, is that they are may have supernatural powers, but they aren’t perfect. I would love the have the whole series so that I can reread it in order.

  108. KatieF
    Jul 29, 2013 @ 20:01:44

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 20:07:27

    My experience with Meljean Brook is the same as many others, I adore the Iron Seas series. I have several of the Guardian books on my TBR shelf, but haven’t started it yet. I’m looking forward to starting the series soon.

    Jul 29, 2013 @ 23:34:20

    The series has so many elements that I love to read about. I wouldn’t be surprised with all the recommendations if I haven’t already purchased the first book in the series. Now that it is complete, it has moved way up my to be read list.

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 01:13:27

    The world in which Meljean puts forth in her stories is dynamic – I love her strong female leads, her smokin hot male leads and the storylines put forward in each story is unique. I had the pleasure Of hiring these from my local library = and would love to add the signed collection to the rest of her books ;) Sad to see this series come to an end. But for all new comers this last book is a much awaited instalment —– ! Cant wait for my pre order to arrive :) kat

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 01:13:41

    Meljean wowed me with her Iron Seas books, and I practically gobbled them up. If they could capture me so fully I imagine her guardian books would too

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 01:14:07

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 01:28:18

    I have read all of both her Guardian and Iron Seas series, and I thoroughly enjoy them both. I’m simultaneously anticipating and dreading the final book in the Guardian series, as I will miss the characters and world, but I also look forward to her next project.

    It’s a fantastic world that she’s created with wonderful mythology. The stories are emotional,gritty and sexy. I’m always pulled into her books wondering what’s going to happen. I also love that she mixes all kinds of supernaturals, you get angels, vampires, demons something for everyone to love.

    I’ve read her Iron Seas books, but I’ve never read the Guardian series (due both to the money factor and the fact that I must read a series from the beginning). I’ve heard fantastic things about it, so I would love to get the chance. Thank you for the opportunity!

  143. evening-green
    Jul 30, 2013 @ 03:52:55

    I would love to get caught up in a new series and so far I haven’t read the Guardian books. Everyone’s enthusiasm towards the final book makes me hope I might find the series amazing too, so thank you for the giveaway, I’d like to try my luck! ^O^

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 04:04:16

    This probably isn’t even open to international readers, as most book giveaways aren’t. But anyway here goes……I love the mix of captivating characters, the darkness and suspense, but most of all, I have always loved Michael. I will be devastated to see this series end, and will just have to go back and re-read it yet again from the beginning. I would like to thank Meljean for creating such an exhilarating, intense and passionate series to stroke our imaginations.

  146. Sally

  147. Mel S
    Jul 30, 2013 @ 04:49:59

    I love your passion to the series – it makes me want to know more about a series that has largely passed me by (although that is mostly cos I live in the UK and it’s not published here!). However, I also loved Meljean’s Iron Seas book so really want to see what the Guardian series is like!

  148. Janetta Axford
    Jul 30, 2013 @ 04:54:38

    Always looking for new authors and have been researching Maljean’s books so here’s hoping (fingers crossed)

    I have the first several books of this series, but just haven’t gotten around to starting it yet. I would love to win the whole backlist. I love the Iron Seas series. I know a major time investment awaits, and I look forward to it, especially knowing that the series has a finite number of books and I can read them all. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 08:00:20

    I’ve loved both the Guardian and Iron Seas series so far, and have every expectation of adoring Guardian Demon as well. It absolutely amazes me how this author has maintained the world-building in two very distinct settings – it seems that many authors who write multiple series tend to unintentionally overlap themes. My favorite aspect of her writing is how the characters are true to their environment and completely believable, while still surprising me with their journey / thoughts / actions. I have such respect for the characters Meljean Brook has created, and that is what keeps me coming back for every release.

  160. Tina G
    Jul 30, 2013 @ 08:11:02

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 08:46:58

    Several of my favorite authors have also mentioned Meljean as an author they enjoy reading, and I’ve read some of her other books and enjoyed those. I have been meaning to go back and read this series, but I have not yet due to lack of time/not having looked up which one is book 1 and been able to check it out of the library/or buy it since. Thanks for the contest!

  165. Sarah

    Jul 30, 2013 @ 09:03:59

    I have read Meljean’s steampunk series and had heard good things about the Guardian series but the time/money investment along with my ridiculously long to be read pile has kept me from diving into it. This may be the kick in the pants I need because I suspect it’s a fantastic series that I would love.

    I’ve read her Iron Seas series and LOVE them but have not read the Guardian series. Really no excuse as to why I have not read it so I would love to win it! I imagine it’s just as well written as the Iron Seas are.

  191. mareda
    Jul 31, 2013 @ 12:04:22

    The Guardian Series was my introduction to Brook’s books and her amazing talent. I followed the series up to book 4 or 5, I think, and loved the worldbuilding and the characters. But then I discovered the Iron Seas and fell in love with the author all over again. Somehow the rest of the Guardian books got left out. So I’d love to win the contest and rediscover my “first love”. Thank you for the contest!

    Thank you so much for the chance to win them all…

    I am a huge paranormal romance fan and read alot of Nalini Singh, Keri Arthur and the like.
    I also have a few anthologies that Meljean has short stories in and have really enjoyed these.
    I have also been recommended Meljean’s series’ a number of times and think its about time that I started.

    I haven’t read this series yet, but it sounds great!!! I like the author’s other books though, so I think any series would sound interesting from her :)

    I’ve been wanting to read this series, but to get the entire series is beyond my budget. Thank you for telling me about the primer.
