In this USA Today–bestselling paranormal romance, a gifted warrior dreams of a mysterious man who may be her downfall.
For centuries, Lisette d’Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can’t bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians’ command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for—and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.
Zach is an exile, a loner. He won’t defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he’ll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?
Praise for New York Times–bestseller Dianne Duvall and the Immortal Guardians series
“Duvall is a major player.”—RT Book Reviews
“The Immortal Guardians series is one you’ll want to follow.”—The Romance Review
“These dark, kick-ass guardians can protect me any day!”—New York Times–bestselling author Alexandra Ivy on Darkness Dawns
“Whizzing along at light speed...this sophomore effort sizzles.”—Publishers Weekly on Night Reigns
In Duvall's maudlin and melodramatic fifth novel featuring nasty vampires and good Guardians (after Darkness Rises), Immortal Guardian Lisette d'Alen on battles foes, friends, and her own heart. Lisette can't stop the feelings she has for the winged, sexy Zach, despite specific orders from her leader to stay away from him. Zach, whose mysterious origin as an "Other" is slowly revealed, will do anything for Lisette, even if it means enduring unimaginable tortures from his own kind. After they accept their undeniable attraction and act on it without regard for consequences, they aid the Guardians in a fight against a terrible new threat that advances the overall series plot. While Duvall's imagination deserves kudos, here she struggles to keep up the intrigue and pace. The cast of characters sprawls out of control as well, making it impossible to keep track of the story.
My, my. This is simply delectably yummy!!
I've read thousands of books in the Romance/Erotica genres - this author is on a par with Sherrilyn Kenyon and J.R.Ward, in my humble opinion.
She has done justice to her characters, creating deep, distinctive plots in each successive book in this series.
