Great beginning and ending.

Marcus Graden has been an Immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years. He prefers to be alone and feels no need to have a backup. But when he is surrounded by eight deranged vampires, Marcus is glad to realize that someone was guarding his backside, even if she was a mortal.
Amiriska "Ami" has trouble trusting anyone, but a coward she is not. When she sees a mysterious warrior fighting against impossible odds, Ami does not hesitate to help and save him. When Seth, the leader and most powerful immortal, assigns Ami to be Marcus's Second, she does not argue. Seth knows all about Ami's private past and her secrets. She may not be an Immortal Guardian, but she IS better than any other Second - excluding Seth's. Ami knows that Marcus does not want a Second, but there is nothing he can do or say that will keep her from doing her job.
It does not take Marcus long to realize that there is more to Ami than what can be seen on the surface and Marcus cannot help but be very attracted to that surface. The little spitfire always seems to know whenever he is in danger and arrives to watch his six whether he likes it or not. But as the battle between vampires and immortals grows, and the danger mounts almost by the hour, Ami may be the only person able to ensure Marcus is still alive in the end.
*** THREE STARS! This is the second novel of the Immortal Guardians series. It started out with a ferocious battle, hooking my attention quickly. The ending was just as fabulous. However, I feel as though the story slowed down too often between the two. The story's point-of-view comes from a variety of characters, causing frequent scene shifts. Be that as it may, the plot is devious and the main characters are engaging. I look forward to the third installment. ***
