ARC Review~ Bodyguards (QuickSilver Codex: Book 1) by Kallysten
On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.
Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.
Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure who she truly is.

About the Author:
Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her life. She has been writing for fifteen years, and always enjoyed sharing her stories and listening to the readers' reactions. After playing with science fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words at paranormal romance novels.

This book was out of this world, literally. There was an alternate universe where Vivien is a princess.
Poor Vivien. She has problems. She didn't remember her childhood, didn't know she was a Princess, her super hot friend is really a body guard who is bound to her by the QuickSilver code, said bodyguard won't date her, and she is almost kidnapped.
This book had a lot to offer. It was a real page turner and I could not put it down. I recommend this book to all those who like paranormal books.
I can't wait to see what happenes in the next book. I hope we don't have to wait long!
I received a copy of this book from FMB Blog Tours in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly liked it and will eagerly await the next book in the series.
I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!
