Bravery, along with being constantly on the alert to danger, is two of the traits a guardian must have. Con does his best to live up to these traits. Nevertheless, Con’s best is not enough to escape the brutal attacks until he is rescued by Quincy.

Hunted Guardian is the seventh book in The Shifters series. The setting is England plus the beginning of an American shifter settlement, the year is 1784. The plot is a romantic suspense. The main characters, Con and Quincy are both guardians and their enemy is a witch disguised as the Countess Blackburn.

Hunted Guardian is also the first book of the second part of this series, as well as the first introduction to the legend of the ancient scrolls, which are part of a weapon that can annihilate shape-shifters. Con is a peregrine falcon charged with guarding two of the scrolls. He has been on the run for two years. Every time Con thinks he has gotten away, the evil witch finds him. When Con is attacked by the countess’s hawk, Quincy rescued him and kept Con safe until Con was strong enough to fly again. It was during Con’s recovery that he discovered Quincy was his mate.

Although Quincy is an alpha wolf, his weakened leg prevents him from running with the pack. Quincy works hard to prove he is valuable, but the pack considers Quincy as almost useless. Being the alpha’s nephew, as well as being appointed the pack guardian, was the only way to establish Quincy’s importance to the pack. His duty is to guard the manor house and the other wolves not participating in the hunts. Not only is Quincy very astute, he is also incredibly compassionate regarding injured animals.

M.D. Grimm has created a thrilling saga that I enjoyed immensely. There is plenty of deadly combat on land plus a dramatic rescue during a storm at sea.
