Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-oldat least thats what hes 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 Ethans 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 aunts locket for the past sixteen years with her mothera Fire Wielder, and her fathera 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....

Hinder (Guardian of Monsters #1) Reviews
This is a good start to the series.
The story begins with a young Ethan and how he is discovered and how tragedy strikes his family. From there we go to the now. Ethan is a great Bender with no earth to bend. Why? His wielder is not around. The reasoning is this: Earth wielders and benders are rare and coveted. No one wants to have someone stronger than them around and Earth magic is the strongest. It is the one that brings balance but can also destroy. Suddenly in a flash of an eye Ethan’s worl ...more
Don't you just hate it when a book gets 5 star reviews and then you rock up with a review of 1 star? That's gonna be the case here, unfortunately.
This book was just pretty cringe worthy, to be honest. Now, keep in mind that others have given this book 5 stars so I'm in the minority here, but I was so bored throughout this. There was a massive info dump at the beginning, which I found hard to take in. Still, despite finishing this book, I can't tell you what the fuck went on. Something about an u ...more

I rarely jump into the YA world but sometimes I like to read other genres so I don’t just stay cuddled up in my smutmance world. Hinder is a refreshing story about Ethan Sutcliff and Alex Burgendorf. This story is about witches, magic, bending, wielding and demonic races galore. It’s a fantasy and possibly even a dystopia. Alex and Ethan are the rarest people on earth who can wield Earth magic. Alex knows her life is in danger until she reaches the age of 25 and most people wi ...more
A departure from my normal romance novels, Hinder was just the break I needed. Kristin Ping really outdid herself in creating a unique world and mythos that drew me in and kept me enthralled from beginning to end. It was absolutely magical. The characters are well-written--they have both flaws and strengths and each is individual to the character. They were real and genuine seeming.
Alex has been hidden all her life. She's spunky, weary, and ready to live outside her aunt's locket. Ethan is an Al ...more
I really wanted to love this book! This synopsis has me so excited, but for me, I just didn't like the writing. The writing and word choice just had me cringing half the time and this was really hard to trudge through, unfortunately.
Thanks to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
A big thank you to NetGalley and Fire Quill Publishing for the ARC for my honest review. I have never read a book by Kristin Ping before. I found it to be quite refreshing. It seemed different-the characters were fun and it reads as a stand alone-it is the first in a series. I can see where this can lead to additional books-but it is not a cliffhanger like some books. There is mystery, and a small amount of romance and a lot of violence. I would say high school and up would be perfect. I enjoyed ...more
Just wow!!!! what an awesome book this was a good and fun to read book I just refused to put it down.
The chemistry between the 2 characters is just so amazing just love it. cant say anything more on this book don't want to spoil it for others all I can say is this read this book
Hinder is a unique and spell-binding new adult paranormal story.
The story is simply about two characters who are looking for one another but the problem was that great danger awaits them. At the age of 10, Ethan already got his power as an Earth Bender but he also needs to find his partner, an Earth Wielder. Without their Wielders, Benders couldn’t do anything that’s why after 7 years, his power disappeared when he didn’t find his Wielder. Meanwhile, Alex has been hiding with her parents insid ...more
