Book Description

1 Nov 2013 Immortal Guardians (Book 4)
Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years - long enough to know that Krysta is special. He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she's exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger too. He'll have to accept Krysta's help to save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost to his heart might be higher...

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkness Rises Review 1 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The fourth book of the Immortal Guardians series is an action filled adventure full of intrigue, romance and immortal warriors.

This series continues to be a great, entertaining and wild read with its world full of strong, intriguing characters that bewitch the reader and continue to draw them deeper into the adventure.

When Krysta comes across an immortal warrior, Etienne, who saves her life, she's not sure what to think after all she is on a mission to kill all vampires. Etienne is immediately intrigued with Krysta and when the two are attacked by humans, Krystal returns the favor and is introduced to the world of the Guardians.
The action starts at the beginning of the book and continues with well orchestrated and descriptive battle scenes. The book is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout the story. The suspense build as the Guardians are attacked by an enemy they thought had been eliminated and they come to the conclusion that they may have been betrayed.

The attraction between Etienne and Krysta is intense and as fast paced as the plot, but fits with the personalities of these characters making them a perfect match. The author conveys the intensity of the emotions with a clarity that has the reader bewitched by this couple.

The author has created a vivid paranormal world that engages and entertains the reader with some intriguing plot twist and surprises for the characters. Once started, I had to finish this book and I am looking forward to reading more in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous paranormal romance and adventure 1 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Darkness Rises Dianne Duvall.

ARC supplied by Netgalley.
I love paranormal romance abut strangely have never read any of Dianne's works. Well, she's now become a favourite author as I simply loved this book. I wasn't sure if I'd follow it OK, as its a return to a world already revealed in past novels, but I was fine. I think I'd have enjoyed it even more if I'd known the histories of characters from past books, but that didn't stop me from savouring the story and romance in this book. Its a twist on the usual vampire novels with "ordinary" vampires mostly turning mad fairly quickly, and devolving into killers. Etienne and his colleagues belong to a group known as Immortal Guardians, who protect humans by keeping these killers off the streets, but of course even with their talents its a dangerous task, and needs thorough thought and backup. Krysta and her brother Sean have some special gifts, and after she saw her fiancé killed by a vampire she's been all out to kill them each night. Then she comes across Etienne, she knows he's not the same as those she's killed, but she finds it hard to believe when instead of killing her he helps her.
There's attraction between them that neither are keen to acknowledge at first, but through circumstances Krysta and Sean get drawn into Etienne's world, and they learn things they'd never dreamed of, and more about their own gifts. Of course, as all the best novels do - they get pulled into danger and Dianne manages to make this really credible. I hate those where, just as the heroine is in big trouble, she pulls out some new, unknown skill. Krysta doesn't, she gets hurts and bleeds, as do the Immortals though of course they heal quicker.

5.0 out of 5 stars cant wait for next one!! 4 Dec 2013
By Debbie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
again, wanting to give more than 5 stars!

oh these just get better and better! so many unanswered questions that I want to know NOW!!!

but first, the book:
this is Etienne's and Krysta's story. we have met Etienne before, but Krysta is new.

Krysta has been fighting vampires, by herself, for 6 years, with her brother's help. she can see auras, vampires are orange. her brother Sean, is a healer. neither realise they are gifted, they just think they are special, both there parents are, so why not them? But Krysta HATES vampires with a passion, hence the killings them, and when she meets Etienne, everything she has believed is thrown into disarry. Of course Etienne is NOT a vampire, he is an Immortal Guardian, and soon both Krysta and Sean learn the difference and what it can mean for them both.

Krysta is funny, not as funny as Melanie, but still. and the scene at the end with her mum and dad had me in stitches!

not so much sex in this one, but again the violence is quiet graphic.

now, I said in the last review, there were some things I liked, these hold true for this book, BUT some changes! obviously, Lisette is NOT gonna end up with Tanner (he isn't even mentioned in this book!) Zach plays a larger role, and we learn a little more about him and Seth in this one, but still WHAT are they?? is not answered. so many more questions raised in this book, and none of them answered!!

the back story, running through all these books is nowhere near finished, so I'm expecting a few more books, I just wish I didn't have to wait til next blooming october!!

it SHALL be on preorder, just as soon as I can get it :-)
