A brilliant introduction to a new series that I can't wait to read more of.

I don't dip into fantasy very often but when I do it has to be for something that will grab my attention and keep me wanting to read right to the end. The Ivory Guard does that and more.

There are a lot things that I liked about this novel. Lillian's initial jolt from normal teenage life to that of the guard where death could be just around the corner had me sympathising for her while anticipating the adventures and fights she would ultimately get into. The action begins almost immediately where Lillian has to fight demons in her own home before she is taken away under the protection of the angel Raz. The pace doesn't slow down after this.

Lillian is a mysterious and interesting character. In her human life she is a bookworm but even as an Ivory Guard there is more to her than meets the eye. The fight scenes between the demons and the Ivory Guard are exciting, made more so by the fact that demons are a real threat and well able to kill angels and Ivory Guards. I couldn't help but wonder if all of Lillian's team would make it to the end.

Lillian's relationship with and growing love for Raz is complicated and dangerous which makes for entertaining reading between fight scenes.
I liked the side characters, especially Becca, and I can't wait to read her adventure in the next book. ( )
