Fatal Judgment is book one in the Guardians of Justice series. A new series from author, Irene Hannon. I have read a few prior novels from this author and liked them. Just like the others, I know that I can expect a quick paced story line, plenty of drama, action and some romance thrown into the mix. Though, I did like this book, I never fully committed to the characters. I don’t know if it was because I was suppose to believe Jake didn’t like Liz but than it was hard to get this feeling when from the first moment he saw her, he felt something for her. Overall, I do think that Fatal Judgment is a good start to this series.
