- Title: Unseen
- Author: Cassie Laelyn
- Series: The Fallen Guardians, Book 3
- Genre: Paranormal Romance
The Fallen Guardian series from my dear friend Cassie has been a guilty treat of mine. I’ve been loving these guardian angel characters of her for quite some time and when a major supporting character that you loved from the very beginning finally gets his story told, you drop everything to read it. EJ is the party boy of the group. He suffers these terrible visions that show him awful things before they happen in hopes that maybe he can intervene and stop them, but he always seems to be too late.
These experiences have created a hardened man that believes he isn’t worthy of anything good. He fails at everything he does and blames himself for why he and his Guardian brothers are stuck on earth, banished from Heaven, with the sole purpose of protecting mortals from the Fallen Angels. Until he starts having these vivid dreams, instead of his visions, that seem much more real than anything he’s experienced before and he meets Hailee. A half-immortal Dumahel that just reached the peak of developing her unknown powers and is a dream-walker. She’s unknowingly pulling EJ into her dreams. But she and her twin sister are in very serious danger and EJ will do everything possible to keep her safe.
What I loved most about this story was the deep theme of redemption and forgiveness. Self forgiveness that is. EJ has spent hundreds of years on Earth blaming himself for all the bad things that happened to him and his brothers and in turn has closed himself off from feeling happiness and love. Instead spending his days in a drunken stupor and irrelevant sexual relations. But his meeting Hailee starts to change all of that. He starts to realize that things are not all his fault and that he does deserve happiness. Even is he has to enter the gates of Hell itself to save her from the biggest threat she’s ever had to face.
It’s an intense journey of self reflection and emotional passion that had my heart racing. I’ve loved EJ since I first met him in book 1 and I just knew his story would be an emotional journey for me. Hailee is the perfect fit for him – she balances his hardened ways with her light and airy personality but because of the difficult experiences she’s had in her own life, she can handle his tougher times and keep up with him.

Heaven is his new Hell…
After centuries of torturous visions from Fate, party boy EJ, hides his guilt behind a perfectly crafted visage. When a woman appears in his dreams, full of sunshine and innocence, he thinks it’s another punishment. But when the dream warps, EJ must question not only his destiny, but also his aversion to commitment.
Dreaming of a sexy book boyfriend is the closest thing Hailee has to a happily ever after. Years of running from her mom’s imaginary demons ensured that. But when tragedy strikes and Hailee’s caught in the middle of a brutal war, all her hope falls on the reluctant hero she thought was a fantasy.
As an ancient battle threatens to tear them apart, EJ and Hailee must fight for their happy ending before their nightmares become a reality.

The silence was deafening, a screaming buzz in her oversensitive ears. Mom’s hand squeezed tighter.
Another loud thump sounded outside, this time on the ground. Her legs shook, refusing to move. Mom crept forward and yanked Hailee to follow.
In the dining room, she exhaled silent relief that she left on the small kitchen light. If not, she would’ve slammed right into the table.
The knob on the back door jiggled.
Mom spun to her. The look in her wide eyes sent an icy chill all the way down Hailee’s spine.
“It’s too late,” Mom whispered.
