My thought on queries: yuck. They make me all sorts of unhappy. It’s a good thing this is part of Deana’s blogfest – I need all the help I can get on this, guys! So have at it, hack away, give me the best advice you can.
Twins, Farrah and Felix, are born into an existence of servitude. They are Bonded with the king’s sons for the sole purpose of protecting the boys; if they fail, they will be put to a painful death.
Farrah protects Alec, but all she desires is to not be chained to a man she can’t stand. But the only way to escape her imprisonment is to end her life. What makes matters worse, is that Farrah begins to fall for Alec and realizes she must make the most difficult choice of all: freedom or love, for she cannot have both.
Felix can’t deny his intense curiosity. He willingly protects his Charge, Gabe, because it means he has free access to the secret tunnels of the House they live in. As he searches further into the history of his world, he uncovers secrets that will put both his and Farrah’s lives in danger.
After death threats against Alec puts Farrah life on the line, and the other slaves in the House rise up in rebellion against their captivity, Farrah and Felix escape with Alec and Gabe to try to find answers to three questions: Who wants Alec dead? Would Farrah and Felix keep Alec and Gabe safe if they weren’t Bonded to them? And, if they return to their House, will they all be killed?
GUARDIANS is a finished at 72k. It is a stand-alone YA-fantasy but has strong series potential.
