Book Review: Unguarded by Ashley Robertson

Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace. 

But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well. 

With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.


Ashley Robertson has created another fantastic world with a collection of every creature you could imagine. Vampires, angels, demons, sirens, and shadow sliders all take center stage in Unguarded.

Selene is an angel with a dilemma; she’s in love with a vampire. Her ranking as an angel has been demoted after the revealing of her love affair, and she has been warned to stay away from any dark ones. When her lover, Cole, is suddenly taken hostage, there are few places to turn. The angel is willing to do anything to get Cole back - even things that could cause her to become fallen.

There are a lot of twists and turns throughout Unguarded as the main character Selene orbs from world to world in search of help. She bumps into a vampire named Luke, but he seems to hinder her more than anything. After finding out his true intent, and the damage he may have created between Selene and Cole, things get interesting.

Traveling from one world to another, Selene makes pacts with the unholy, fights unseen forces, and struggles to find her love. But nothing will prepare her for the transformation of herself through the search.

Battles with demons, inner and manifested, come to the forefront in Ms. Robertson’s books. Since they are told from first person POV, they’re all very interesting to me. I love a good inner struggle.
