Hinder
Kristin Ping
(Guardian of Monsters #1)
Publication date: May 15th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Paranormal

Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.

Review

4 ★ – Deliciously Fun, Undeniably Steamy, and Wonderfully Enthralling

There’s a reason why paranormal romance is one of my favorite genres. Hinder by Kristin Ping is deliciously fun, undeniably steamy, and so wonderfully enthralling. I devoured this story so fast that I’m terribly aching for more!

This book is positively bewitching! I really liked the premise of the story and the supernatural aspects kept me intrigued. I thought the world building was creative and very fascinating. I’ve read and watched plenty about witches, warlocks, and magic, but never one like this. I definitely enjoyed learning about the relationship between Benders and Wielders. The plot was also fast-paced, suspenseful and absolutely thrilling. The drama, the humor, the sexuel innuendos, the conflict, the mystery, and the impending dangers… had me completely hooked. Throw in a swoony, sweet, and satisfyingly steamy romance and I’m a goner! Truly had so much fun with this book.

I liked Ethan and Alex and thought they were fantastic characters. Ethan’s devastatingly handsome, athletic, strong, and overall a decent guy, but he’s still a teenager and made plenty of mistakes. Alex’s breathtakingly gorgeous, smart, and sassy, but had her own insecurities to overcome. They were both very stubborn, but also passionate, determined, and genuinely good. I loved watching them interact and figure out how to find a balance with their powers and relationship. Speaking of their relationship… totally made me giddy. Their chemistry was amazing and the many tender and sexy moments between them were absolutely electrifying that I found it impossible to put the book down.

The supporting characters were interesting and likable to some extent.  The parents were very overprotective, but with reason so it was easy to understand their actions. Ariel, Alex’s Aunt, was my favorite character — she’s sexy, alluring, sassy, and spontaneous. I also really loved her close relationship with Alex. This book had some heartwarming friendships and relationships that I really enjoyed and can’t wait to read more about.

While there were some parts of the story that irked me a bit, this book was still an absolute fun and delightful read. With a thrilling storyline, imaginative world building, fantastic characters, and a forbidden romance, Hinder had me enchanted until the end and anticipating the rest of the series.

I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher and Xpresso Book Tours via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
