Praise 
 All in all, Hunted is a very enjoyable read, especially for those who enjoy angel/demon books. This one has everything you want in an angel book while still maintaining its own distinct feel. ~TeresaMaryRose 

This series is addictive. ~Author Kate Kaynak 

AMAZING! There is not enough words to describe how much I loved Hunted. Ednah Walters has outdid herself if that is even possible. ~Megan McDade  


Excerpt

“Mrs. Watts,” I said, getting in her face and forcing her to lean back. “My friends have the ability to heal and restore things, but there’s a lot more that I can do. A lot more and a lot worse.”
My hand shot up and everything in her house lifted off the ground, including her TV console. Her eyes widened. I wiggled my finger and tiny bolts of lightning zipped between the bobbing things.
“You see, my friends here are pure Guardians. I, on the other hand, have demon blood in my veins and a massive headache that’s refused to go away, so you do not want to mess with me. Those three children Izzy healed can easily become ill again like that.” I snapped my fingers. Everything came back down with thuds, a few missing their places and crashing to the floor. “Then I can do things to your head that you’ll beg me to kill you.”
Mrs. Watts swallowed, his gaze swinging from me to my friends. “Can she…?”
“Oh yes,” Sykes said, grinning.
“Don’t encourage her,” Kim snapped. “She’s not herself.”
I glanced at Kim and chuckled. “Actually, Kim, I am.” Turning, I studied Mrs. Watts. “So what is it going to be, Mrs. Watts? One sick child or four?”
She swallowed.
“You’re wasting our time, Mrs. Watts,” I snapped.
“That’s enough, Lil,” Bran said.
Mrs. Watts looked at him with relief.
“Don’t look at him. He’s not going to help you.”
“Lil!”
I glared at Bran and for one brief moment, my sight blurred until all I saw was a shadow where his face had been. Dizziness washed over me again. His thoughts, along with the others’, crashed into my psyche, but they were jumbled and didn’t make sense. My knees gave away.
I’ve got you, Bran telepathed me just as he pulled me against his chest. You are okay.
Calmness settled on my mind as his psi energy blended with mine. Cool hands touched my forehead and voices echoed in my head as though filtered by a mist.
“She’s burning up,” someone said in a distorted voice.
“We’ll finish here, then take her home,” another added.
My vision and hearing cleared. The headache was slow to react.
“She’ll be fine,” Bran reassured them.
“She fainted, Bran,” Kim insisted.
“And her eyes glowed just like they did on the island,” Izzy added.
“I’m fine,” I finally spoke, but my eyes stayed locked with Bran’s. I tried to disengage our energies but he wouldn’t let me. I could have pushed him out of my head, but I might have ended up hurting him. I wiggled, hoping physical distance would do the trick, but he refused to let me go. You can’t do this.
Says who?
You’re sharing a burden that’s not yours, I insisted. You’ll get my headache and mess up your powers.
So what? You and I are mated for better and for worse.
I frowned. We are?
Yes, so sit back and let me take care of you.
Reasoning with him was getting me nowhere. It was time to lay on the guilt. You are draining my energy, something you swore you’d never do.
He grinned. Nice try. When we are done here, I’m taking you home, where you’ll stay until your powers stabilize. He severed the link. Can you take care of Mrs. Watts’ memories without turning her into Mrs. Hyde again?
I rolled my eyes, but at the back of my mind I kept hearing “Mated”. When? Another lost memory?

Author Ednah Walters
I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy boys mysteries, hence Stratemeyer influence, before I graduated to Mills & Boons (starting with Janet Daily's Shutter the Sky) and the rest is history. I enjoy good love stories, tingly mysteries and wondrous adventures. When I finished my college and decided to be a stay-at-home mother, I devoured books like they were going out of production, until reading just wasn't enough. So I started to write. I've written picture books, contemporary and romantic suspense, biracial/multicultural books, and finally YA fantasy. Awakened is the first book in The Guardian Legacy series. I'm working on book 2, tentatively named Betrayed. When I'm not writing, I do things with my family, five children or my darling husband of 18 years. I live in a picturesque valley in Utah, the setting for my series.
