Review: Bodyguards by Kallysten

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.

Given to me from the author in exchange for my honest review.
  Another great series from Kallysten. This hooked me from the start to where I read it straight through til the end. I'm anxiously awaiting the next book. 
 I loved all the main characters in it for different reasons. Vivien was very relatable in the situation she was put into. She finds out that she's this princess from another world no less that needs her help to over throw the king since she's the rightful heir. Where all Vivien wants to do is finish college and maybe date her cute running partner Brad. Only to find out that he's actually one of her bodyguards. Both him and his twin brother  Aedan. They took an oath when they were young to protect her.  She has her moments where you definitely get frustrated with her and want her to think about it from their side of things but again it is understandable that she's thrown into this position out of nowhere.  
  I was definitely torn between the brothers. Brad is so sweet and loves Vivien but is torn by his promise and what is proper. He wants to be with her but he knows that he shouldn't. And Aedan who has been alone for so long and sacrificed so much for her without her knowing.
 Vivien falls for Brad but I have a feeling that she may come to love Aedan too. I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens.



  1. i'm glad you liked it too but personnaly i'm more for Aedan( what he suffered so much he deerve someone just for him so definitivekly not Vivien)

    1. True.. I guess we'll have to see how it goes. I think I'll be happy just as long as he can get a happy ending too.
