About the book…
On the planet, Hathor, a powerful group called the Guardians serves as the security force for Novacorp, the corporation that runs Hathor with its ruthless monopoly. Nadira, as one of the most powerful Guardians, is expected to use her intuition and telekinetic powers to keep the capital city safe from thieves and intruders.
Jonathan Keel, son of a mine CEO on the nearby planet, Astarte, is wealthy, privileged and used to getting what he wants. When his father goes missing after a robbery and explosion at the mine, he defies the authorities and heads to Hathor to search for him and for the robbers.
Security is on high alert and Nadira is charged with protecting Jon. She rescues him from an vicious attack and discovers that the Guardians have another agenda that has nothing to do with solving the crime.
Jonathan finds evidence of his father’s possible involvement, while his attraction to Nadira forces her to confront all she has known about being a Guardian, especially the rule to put duty before her personal feelings.
Struggling with their growing desires, and chased by company security, Jon and Nadira flee the city. But solving the crime leads them to endure betrayals from the people closest to them, as secrets are revealed that not only link their pasts but also threaten to destroy Jon’s family and separate him from Nadira forever.

Similar use of weaponry. Nadira discovers she's not the only one with this special power? Intriguing!

Yes, Nadira has a lot to learn about Ilana. Thanks for stopping by!

Hathor is an interesting name for a planet. Makes me wonder if some of the characters have Egyptian roots? I'll have to read and find out. =D

Hi Maria, Actually when I researched and found that Hathor is also the goddess associated with mining, it seemed perfect. Mining is the main business of the company that runs the planet. The more I read about her, the more I liked the idea of naming the planet after her. Thanks for stopping by!
