"a great read"
When Guy Lake woke up this morning he never dreamed his day
would go so haywire. Guy, an ex-Marine is rescued by who
else but from the kidnapper, a man who says he is Rasputin;
who in doing so sets off a chain of events that no one can
control or understand. Like his Mother or the Judge at
Rasputin's trial and to the bodyguard who is called Asmael.
Guy just doesn't know what to believe, was he kidnapped
against his will? Did he go willingly? Who is this man who
goes by Rasputin? Is he who he says he is, an Immortal with
powers that are not only shocking but powers that one could
only dream of having? He is the Guardian of the Gates of
Hell, or is he a man that is crazy in the mind and only
needs help? Is Guy the man for Rasputin, his prince that
can make him whole instead of half the man he is? And is
Asmael the Guardian of the Damned and not the bodyguard
that Guy thought him to be?
Wow, Willa Okati is always above and beyond in her story
telling, but this book even blew me away and I have read
several of her books. I loved this book; it was different,
quirky and just plain a great read. I can never get enough
of Willa's books and can't wait to see what she comes out
