Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews), “fast-paced and humorous” (Publishers Weekly) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.
He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.
When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her that—against all reason—she makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesn’t have to fix up the place. So she can’t explain why she bought it. She also can’t explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows she should keep her distance. He has no memory and possesses gifts that would make most fear him. But as the two work together to unravel the mystery of his past, she finds herself drawn in by his teasing nature and tender touch. So much so that she loses her heart to him even as they find themselves hunted by unknown enemies who are ruthless in their quest to capture them.

Awesome book! I give this book 10 stars! Susan and Stan is an excellent story of trust! When things go bad and Yuri dies and Stan disappears, the story begins. I advise you to keep your mind open enjoy this awesome story because you will laugh as well as shed a few tears. Read how Susan find and meets Stan and as their relationship grows. That is the love component but we have the mystery and action part as well. You will hate to put the book down and I only did because I fell asleep while reading it but did not put it down until after I woke and finished it. I highly recommend this book and the entire series! Now how about a story for David or Seth?
It just gets better!
Awaken the Darkness is a great book! Diane Duvall series is fantastic’ each book is a stand alone but you will revisit previous characters, and it picks up where the previous book ended. So be best to read them all. What a ride, this has it all: mystery, drama, laughter, romance, action and tears. The book tells us what mystery happen to Stan and his meeting and romance with Susan. I was sad to read the last page, I want more! This definitely a keeper!
My favorite series.I’m hooked
The Immortal Guardians series and the Gifted ones series are superb. Dianne Duvall created a world that has hooked its fangs on me. I’m so addicted to those amazing heroes and their world. It takes you in a wonderful trill, battle, sizzling romance, true friendship, angst filled page turner rollercoaster ride. Every book in this series is amazing in its own right. This is Stan’s story. I’m so happy he gets his HEA. I read it in one seating, I couldn’t put it down. I recommend the audiobook as well, it is so well narrated that it brings our beloved characters to life in a whole new incredible level. Thanks Ms. Duvall, your books are so amazing that when I read them, I get transported and lost in their world. Coming back to reality when I’m done reading is a sucker punch lol. I can’t wait for the next book.
