Ethan Morgan never asked to be firstborn—and definitely didn’t buy into all the ridiculous tradition that came with it. From the time he could talk though, Andrew, Ethan’s twin and younger brother by mere seconds, begged for the honor. Maybe if he’d just given it to him—signed away his birthright like Esau—he wouldn’t be a cop on the wrong side of a crime scene. But here he was, left with nothing but a widow, a missing family heirloom and a heart filled with rage, regret and bitterness. Is that what it takes to step up to family responsibility? Do the sins of the fathers revisit their sons, or do the ghosts of the past make believers of them? This is a story that stands on its own. A contemporary suspense thriller,The Guardians brings the Morgan story into the present day with a bang as Ethan Morgan is catapulted into a crisis with implications far beyond the fate of a single family. The nation's future is at stake!

Good as a stand-alone| Posted August 28, 2009
This is a fairly good book. I read it as a stand alone without the rest of the series. Within the book they make very frequent references to the rest of the series however and this made me want to read the rest of the series. The book itself is full of action, suspense and intrigue!
