My name is Vinna, and I’ve been keeping a lot of secrets. 

You would too if you’d experienced some of the weird shit I have: red-eyed monsters chasing me, markings on my body appearing out of nowhere, a strange power that crackles colorfully over my skin from time to time, and don’t get me started on the weapons I can conjure up almost out of nowhere. 

Lucky for me, I have yet to meet someone whose ass I couldn’t kick, inside the ring or out. I put that to the test when I run headfirst into a fight that brings all my secrets, and reality as I know it, crashing down around me. 

Now, I’m looking for answers and trying to piece together what the hell is going on. Paranormal is my new way of life. It’s not going to be easy, and I’m not exactly welcome. 

That is, until I meet the boys, and trust me, they are anything but boyish. 
I’m up against elders who think I’m too powerful, a family who views me as a threat, and something lurking in the shadows that’s been coming for me my whole life. 

There’s not a chance in hell I’m going down without a fight. I’m not lost anymore, and I’m about to show this world exactly what I can do. 

Author’s Note: This is the first book in The Lost Sentinel Series and ends with a cliffhanger. This book is a medium burn reverse harem story, intended for ages 18 years and older. This story contains strong language, sexual situations, and violence.


Here I am once again reading another reverse harem series because I literally can’t get enough of them! Ivy Asher is new author for me and I really did enjoy my first book from her. I love reading books that have a new kind of fantasy/paranormal world to offer. There were all sorts of new paranormal creatures in this one!

Vinna has been fighting for her life since she was a little girl and has had to grow up quickly in an unforgiving world full of grief and pain. One night changed everything for her and she was finally on her way to discovering answers to her mysterious powers. She does this alongside a powerful group of secondary characters who added so much to the book!

Vinna is a strong heroine who revels in violence, especially in defense of those she loves and considers hers. She finds her missing pieces through a group of boys who would do absolutely anything for her. I adored each and every one of the boys in her harem. I for sure had a couple of favorites, but I really did love each of them for different reasons. Vinna and her harem click together seamlessly, which I am not surprised about. I loved reading not only their romantic journey, but their paranormal journey as well.

I was certainly addicted to these books for a good couple of days because I couldn’t put them down! Now, I need to go on a search for my new reverse harem…
