Kerrick is a vampire warrior on a mission—to protect powerful mortal Alison Wells as she goes through the rite of ascension, or transformation into a vampire.  But along the way, Kerrick gets caught in a feirce, forbidden attraction to the woman he been assigned to watch over.  After his beloved wife was murdered by evil blood vampires, Kerrick took vows never to get involved with a woman again, for he knows that he’ll risk her life if he gets too close.  But when a powerful army of blood vampires learns about Alison's extraordinary powers, they're determined to take her down.  Now Kerrick has no choice but shadow her where ever she goes--even if it means losing his heart for eternity.

Caris Roane has an awesome start for a hot paranormal romance series in The Guardian of Ascension Series. I found Ascension very compelling and thrilling to read. I have seen some compare this to other major paranormal romance authors, I didn’t see this one bit in fact, I like the way Caris stuck more to the romance in her story then other authors and with the touch of Sci-Fi world build with the characters traveling between different dimensions, oh yeah, defiantly very different from the rest and explained easy.

In this book you get one hot vampire warrior and one sexy very dangerous heroine. I like that the author wasn’t afraid about creating a very strong heroine, so much so, her power can kill people and it does (you'll have to read and find out who). Alison is no ordinarily human. You’ll just have to read to find out what all this extraordinary this woman can do. I wouldn’t say the hero Kerrick is tortured, but he has some issues that take a bit to overcome, but he is always proud of Alison no matter what she throws at him. I loved how the author bought these two together and build their romance. The sexual tension is smoking all the way through the book, the sex is very steamy, but there’s not a lot of it and it takes a long while to get to it. Yeah, I know I don’t have to have it that much, but crap the tension was so hot it was killing me LOL.

The other warriors in very present in the story and the author also gave a peek to who may be the next mate for a couple of them. It just makes reading a series so much exciting because you cant wait for the next book to see what’s going to happen.

Now, I want to say, the author has a very deep storyline with a lot going on, plus quite a few different characters, so be preprepared for going back in fourth between characters. It can be confusing at first until you get to know them, so just take your time. The cussing can be a bit much, so if your one who doesn’t like it be prepared.

I recommend this to any paranormal romance lover. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in trying this series, especially if you love romance with some dangerous action.
