this book was full of all the good stuff for me.firstly,the characterization was brilliant.the heroine is witty,strong minded and can kick-ass with the best of them!the hero,well what can i say-yummy!i loved that he accepted Krysta for who she was (a vampire hunter) and didn't try and change her ways. also it was great to see the other members of this series featured and story arcs from the other books continued (Ami's pregnancy,military threat,insight into Seth's origins and the mysterious Zach(the guy with wings who meets Ami on top of David's house)etc).
this being said i wouldn't recommend this book to be read as a stand alone.this book is a continuation of previous stories,as well as the main one itself.i would however recommend the series as a whole.
further,the plot was great with a twist at the end that left me dying to read the next book!there was also a great romance.the couple had instant chemistry.my only real criticism was with the pace of the book.normally this author sets a fast-can't-possibly-put-it-down pace,this time however in places it seemed to lag a bit. nevertheless, it was well written with a great plot that still kept me reading.
***NOTE TO FANS***:in this book we see that Etienne's brother Richart is now married. his story was told in the anthology 'PREDATORY' (2013) (with stories from authors Alexandra Ivy,Nina Bangs & Hannah Jayne).

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.Read more ›
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.
