Night Reigns (Immortal Guardians #2)
Lara Adrian did it better.
I don't mind the direction in which it went actually, fine whatever.
But the way it was done, the explanation was really really bad.
big spoiler ahead:
(view spoiler)[So, she lives on the other side of the galaxy on some planet, and looks EXACTLY like a human. Yeah. Right. Oh, and has same internal organs as a human, not just looks. Yeah. Right. (hide spoiler)]
It would've been a 4 if not for that BS["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
I really liked Marcus in the first book of this series – Darkness Dawns. Of course he’s a badass Immortal warrior, but he’s also loyal with a big heart and a fantastic sense of humour. He lives his life on the edge – throwing himself into danger with a carefree attitude, but he keeps his emotions close.
When Ami is appointed by Seth to be Marcus’ second, Ma ...more
Cover: It’s okay.
Rating NC-17 for sexiness of it all.
Thumbs Up 4.5
Overall: Solid good read.
Characters: Love them.
Plot: Maybe not as good as the first but still excellent.
Page Turner: Yes.
Series Cont.? Yes.
Book Boyfriend: Marcus
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
Wow did I love this book! It was so good! I am very grateful to my Goodreads friend Jessica who suggested the series. It is just what I have been looking for!
The heroes and heroines are amazing people. I have gotten tired of reading about selfish characters, and this book, (just like the first), are filled with people (well, many of them non-human) who are motivated by love for each other and the desire to protect innocent people. In this book, Marcus the hero, is simply divine. He is p ...more
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
This was a great story. I've read the first book in the series Darkness Dawns which I loved and this book is a great addition to the series. I really liked Marcus in book #1 and was happy to get to read his book.
Ami is a nice woman with a strange/painful past. She's been separated from all she knew and ended up in a horrible situation that Seth and David (the 2 oldest Immortals) end up saving her from. It takes a while but she slowly begins to get back to herself and recover from her ...more
I really liked both of the leads, the stubbo ...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.
Not human ...more
This book lived up to my expectations all the way up to where Ami tells Marcus who, or rather, what she is, which is around the 75% mark or slightly after that if I remember correctly.
(view spoiler)[SHE'S A BLOODY A ...more
The previous book focused more on the story, this one was more about the love and romance. But it wasn't bad at all, I liked it. It kept me curious 'til the end, I really wanted to know what Ami was and the answer stunned me.
Maybe that part I didn't really like, (view spoiler)[ I mean, c'mon, aliens? Really? (hide spoiler)]Ah well, it's a pretty nice series, it's worth giving it a try.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Wow! This is really turning out to be an interesting story. I didn’t see the new plot twists coming at all. I really enjoyed Marcus in the first book, DARKNESS DAWNS, so I’m glad he got top billing in NIGHT REIGNS. Ami is an intriguing heroine who I’ve rooted for from the very beginning. So glad they got their happily ever after.
What I find so fascinating about this series is the overall story that is developing throughout all the books. Ms. Duvall gives the reader just enough hints t ...more
Can't wait until October for the next one......come on Ms Duvall - please write faster :)) ...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
Thanks to the excellent introduction to the world and the mythology regarding vampires and Immortals in DARKNESS DAWNS, the first book in the Immortal Guardians paranormal romance series, Dianne Duvall wasted no time launching into an equally seductive story for the sequel, NIGHT REIGNS. Both the hero and heroine had been introduced in the previous book, but newbies to the series won’t feel like they are missing out when these two meet for the first tim ...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
I loved Marcus from book 1 and it featured Amy, the mystery victim from book 1.
This book occurs 1 1/2 years after Roland and Sarah got married. Marcus was being hunted by a group af organized vampires who think he is Roland. So Seth assigns him a second, Amy, to watch his back. The rest is similar to book 1. But there was the addition of a Sci-fi type nations. I liked it but I didn't get why Amy just couldn't be gifted.
I have a few questions: most importan ...more
It was probably because Marcus spent quite a long time pushing Ami away (which I really do not like) and his 800 year fixation with another woman (I will not go there). But I really liked Marcus. Ami was a rock star. By far the fiercest female fighter I think I have ever read. Incredibly brave and ...more
Paranormal Romance –Dec 6th, 2011
In the second in the author's paranormal series about immortal Guardians, a lone warrior is forced to take a very beautiful and vulnerable human female as his partner.
Marcus is a Guardian who likes flying solo, but when he is attacked by multiple vampires, even he finds it difficult to take care of them all until the very unexpected arrival of a human female named Ami who helps him. Marcus finds himself drawn to Ami but feels ...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

Ich mochte das Buch wirklich sehr, BIS rauskam was Ami denn nun genau ist. Ich hatte mit allem guten gerechnet, was man in der Fantasywelt so finden kann. Hexe, Elfe, Fee, Gestaltenwandler usw. doch leider wurde die Auflösung so blöd, dass ich danach keine Lust mehr hatte.

I have no idea why I put off reading this book for so long because I loved it! I think I was a little afraid Ami was going to be a weak female character because of the way Seth found her but hell no, she was a freaking bad ass. When Seth first puts Ami and Marcus together Marcus does everything he can to get her to go away and she doesn't take any of it and she helps him fight the vampires. If it wasn't for her Marcus would have been captured or killed. an ...more
I liked the characters separately. I was intrigued by the glimpses of both of them from book 1. However for some reason, I wasn't feeling them together as a couple. I didn't really understand their chemistry nor did I feel it for a very long time until toward the end of the story.
The Good: Marcus and Amy are interesting individuals. She has mysterious origins and is the young lady rescued by Seth and David in book 1. Marcus is also pretty awesome. He played sidekick in book 1. Was witt ...more
