Excerpt of Awakened: Most teens turn sixteen and get the license to drive, but Lil Falcon gets the license to kill demons. Orphaned as a child and raised by an eccentric grandfather, Lil is concerned with surviving high school and is unaware that she's a Guardian-a being with super powers charged with killing demons and protecting humanity. When she meets Bran, a mysterious boy with amazing abilities, his psi energy unlocks her latent powers. But Bran has a secret that can ruin their growing relationship, and the truth she discovers may destroy everything she believes in unless she finds the right balance between love and sacrifice.

Betrayed (author blog): 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.
My review: this series is INTENSE. Seriously love this series. I love Lil Falcon (even though my head says Lil'Falcon (like little falcon) each time I see that. DO NOT TELL HER THAT THOUGH! This is one bad hiney chic not even I, fangedmom, want to have as an enemy! She is incredible. I love her power and no nonsense attitude. She challenges everything and never lets anyone coddle her or treat her as someone breakable.
Lil likes to fight & deserves to fight. She trains hard and is definitely skilled. She finds out in Betrayed that her powers are growing. There are people in her life she is not sure if she can trust or not. She gets almost paranoid as life get so complicated for her. She is strong and can keep her head on straight....
She is close to her human friends and her Guardian friends both. She needs these relationships to balance out her Guardian life. She finds out that SOMEONE close to her is a SPY. She is crushed as she does not know how she can blame a friend and is driving herself crazy with a serious case of the "what if's"...
Bran...oh Bran...Bran is a demon gone Guardian. IKR...crazy stuff? But he is what dreams are made of. I am going to interview him. PLEASE DO NOT TELL LIL! She scares me...did I mention that? She is a powerful little thing. Could have something to do with her genetics....guess YOU better read the book on August 1st when it comes out!
Ednah Walters is a MASTER story teller. The world she has created with The Guardians is incredible. Once I start one of her books, I cant put it down. I have to finish it.
