Lil has come to terms with her life as a Guardian/demon hunter and the wielder of the Nephilim most powerful weapon. She trains everyday to master her growing powers, gets along with her Guardian trainee friends (most of the time) and cherishes her moments with her human friends.
Just when she feels she belongs, her nature-bender father contacts her and warns her about a betrayal by someone close to her. Then Bran, the guy she loves, starts to act strange and one of her human friends acquires a supernatural ability. While Lil struggles find a connection between these three things, she begins to realize that someone is manipulating her and Bran, and will stop at nothing (including hurting those she loves) to lure them to the dark side.

I was floored by how amazing this book was. I finished it yesterday and so wished there was more. I am basically going crazy waiting for book 3 now. I didn't think it was possible but I LOVE Bran and Lil even more. The title Betrayed really fits this book to a tee. In this book Lil's left to wonder just who she can trust and just who might be out to destroy her and her Guardian friends. Also Lil and Bran's relationship is put to the test when Bran starts keeping things from Lil and pulling away from her just when she needs him the most. Betrayed also lets us get to know Bran's sister Celeste. We get to see how she is adjusting to life away from Coronis' Island. Remy, Sykes, Izzy, And Kim also play a big part in this book and there witty banter is just as engaging as in Awakened (The Guardian Legacy Series Book #1). Lil also gets a dose of her daddy dearest Valafar. Not only does Lil's demonic father try to put doubts in her head about those she knows and trust but he uses her late mother as a guise for his truer purpose. This book kept me glued from beginning to end. Is it wrong to find Angels/Nephilim'sHOT? Bran is even HOTTER (in my opinion) in this sequel. So if you are looking for an action packed, Angels verse Demons, soul mates, and a Mortal Combat then Betrayed is the book for you. On a scale from 1-10 I give this book a resounding 10. I have the same feeling about this book as I did with the first one. It is still a series that I can read over and over again. The characters were just so vibrant and incredibly real for me. Ednah, I am now salivating for the next book in this AMAZINGLY FANTASTIC series. Everyone one, in my opinion, NEEDS to pick up a copy of Betrayed. If you haven't read Awakened yet then you should pick up a copy of that book as well.
