What is Ami? That’s what we was left with in book one. In this book you get Ami dumped on Marcus as his second and you don’t get a clue about what Ami is until mid way, then things starts unwrapping about what she is. One thing about Ami is she is strong and can fight right along with an Immortal and it doesn’t take Marcus long to figure...more
Marcus has lived over 900 years. He has loved and lost, but that love was never returned in any way other than sisterly love. While determined...more
Dianne Duvall delivers scorching romance, gut-wrenching emotions, and heart-racing danger and suspense in her latest Immortal Guardian’s novel, Night Reigns!
In the first novel, Darkness Dawns, readers were left with the mystery of what exactly Ami was and what part she will play in the series as well as Marcus’s depression over the loss of the woman he loved. When Seth, the leader of the Immortal Guardians, places Ami as Marcus’ second all of our questions are slowly answered.

If you read Darkness Dawn, the first book in the Immortal Guardians series, you will remember Marcus. He helped Roland and Sarah by letting them stay in one of his houses, but was always very morose. We had learned then that he was mourning the leaving of the woman he loved, Bethany, six years prior. When this book begins, it’s 18 months later and Marcus is still mourning. Mourning and missing his best friend, knowing that she’s with the peop...more

My complaint about audiobooks....I can read a book in a single evening. With the limited amount of time I can listen to an audiobook, it usually takes a week to get through the book. I had to really work at my self-control with this one. When I was about 2 hours into the 12 1/2 hours of audio, I got the print copy of it in (it was on sale online and I knew I wanted it in my permanent library, so I bought a copy of the book.) The problem with that was....I really wanted to just pick up...more
Ami isn't much for trusting strangers. She has a hard time trusting anyone. But she's no coward, and she's no pushover in the protection department either. So when she comes across a mysterious warrior taking on eight deranged vam...more
I enjoy reading about a woman who defies the odds and expectations of others; to not only wow the other characters in a book, but stuns and amazes a reader too. Ms. Duvall does all that and more in the second installment of her hard hitting but cheeky Immortal Guardian series.
Night Reigns gave me not only another great tale but a surprising twist at the three quarters mark that knocked my socks off. Never could I have imagined where th...more

Sekundanten sind für die Unsterblichen Wächter unerlässlich. Sie beschützen diese bei Tag und helfen ihnen bei ihren Aufgaben. Doch nicht jeder Wächter hat auch einen Sekundanten, und neben Roland, der jeden Sekundanten in die Flucht trieb, ist Marcus einer der wenigen der sich weigert das Seth ihm einen Sekundanten zuweißt. Seit dem...more
I will admit though that I wanted to rate this book a 3 because of a reoccurring theme that Ms. Duvall is putting in these books. Apparently, Ms. Duvall is an organic-lovin', hybrid-driving, anti-crap food lover. I don't know how many times within these first 2 books that I had to hear how bad chemicals...more
First up is the narrative or writing style. I've always far preferred the first person past tense for this genre, however, although I find this style; third person with shifting perspectives harder to get into, I did feel it allowed us to...more
What I didn't like was Ami. Well, not so much her character, as she was a strong and able heroine. I felt she was a good match for Marcus. What I...more
So, without spilling the beans of the first book, I will tell you I loved the characters. Marcus was grouchy at first but quickly fell into the sweet bf role we...more
The opossum is gone,” he told her.
A second later a plaintive meow sounded at the back door.

Dianne Duvall is a new to me author and I am happy to say I really enjoyed her writing and storytelling. I didn't feel as though there were any holes in her paranormal romance and everything flowed...more

SUMMARY (50 word or less)
The cliffhanger at the end of the previous book left me wanting to read this book right away. And well, I think part of the anticipation which isn’t immediately gratified, caused some of the let down. But a lot of q...more
1. A Suspension Of Disbelief hat. You need quite a bit of SOD to read most fantasy/paranormal books, but this one requires a touch more than usual. So get yourself the amazing SOD hat and it will help you through those tough times.
2. The patience of a Saint. This is needed for all the time leading up to and including you finding out exactly who/what the heroine is. It is alluded to, it is hinted at, many wrong guesses will be made until you are literally sh...more
Night Reigns is the second book of her Immortal Guardians series. The third one should be coming out this year so you'll only have book 1 and book 2 to tide you over. And please trust me when I tell you that two is SO not enough!!
Night Reigns focuses on Amiriska, who, if you remember from Book 1, Seth rescued from the evil government scientists who were torturing her. She goes by...more

There were some plot turns in this story that made me scratch my head. Yes, the heroine's backstory threw me for a loop but by then I already loved her. Had I known what she was, I don't think I would have given this one a chance. The hero, Marcus, was everything I crave in my vamps -- old, tall, brave, a little crazy, sexy, and vunderable. I was a little irked that his backstory was thrown in messy-like. I thought I h...more
