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 vampires on his own, she doesn't hesitate to save his bacon. Of course, that was before she realized what one little rescue would get her into . . . ...more

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.

Book 2 in the Immortal Guardians series, and the action, romance, and paranormal excitement continues! This time focussing on Marcus and Ami.

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

With every single installment I read, I love this series even more. This is Marcus and Ami’s story. And before I get too far, I have to address the big elephant in the room. A lot of readers took issue with the reveal of who/ what Ami really is. It is kind of out there. But I started this series with book 6, so I already knew what she was, long before she told Marcus. The reveal that turned off so many readers, wasn’t a thing for me. So yeah, it is kind of weird (and that says a lot, considering ...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

Dianne Duvall delivers another action pack romance in book two of the Immortal Guardians series. If you read book one and loved it you sure can’t miss this one.

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
4.5-5 stars

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
Marcus has been grieving over a love that was never his to lose and flying solo, throwing himself headlong into deadly confrontations with vampires, until - against his objections - he is assigned a 'second', Ami. And when his plan to scared her off doesn't work, Marcus is reluctantly gaining respect for the deadly little human and finding that it is way more than nice to have someone who 'has his back' after keeping everyone at a distance for so long.

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.

Talk about the biggest letdown of the year. This is the one book I was anticipating the most. The one book that didn't get here soon enough. The one book I was impatiently patient for. I've had all my friends reading the first book in the series, because I believed it to be that good!

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)
This one was cute.

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)Ah well, it's a pretty nice series, it's worth giving it a try.

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

Oh this is another swoony read by Diane Duvall. The first was Darkness Dawns (my review linked) and really needs to be read first. This book takes place not long after the first and you are already introduced to several of the characters and their situation. In this book Marcus, a immortal guardian is paired with Ami. This is their story.

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

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

Ok, seriously, Dianne Duvall is my new favoritest of the favoritests. Nora who? Dianne Duvall puts them ALL to shame!!

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

This book was a 3.75 stars read for me.
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.

Having just read the 1st book in the series and really feeling the main couple, this one was just not quite as good for me. I really liked both main characters. A lot. There was just something missing.

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
An awesome read.....the story and characters are just full of emotion, action, suspense and love. The series is written in a way that just leaves you guessing at who's story is next and in what direction will the story go?! I love all the main characters and look forward to reading each of the stories and hopefully their HEA's.

Night Reigns by Dianne Duvall
Paranormal Romance –Dec 6th, 2011
4 stars

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
These Immortal Guardians are hot! With hard bodies, super fast reflexes, and the skills to protect the human race from mad vampires on killing rampages, these guardians will capture your heart. In Night Reigns, the solitary Marcus is forced to take on a second after a near death experience. Ami is the tenacious second assigned to take on Marcus. As Marcus fights against armies of vampires, Ami is determined to prove her ability and worth. As these two battle at home and in the field, sparks fly! ...more

I'm giving this book a 4 because I am enjoying the story and it left me with enough questions that I'm eager for the next book. I like the characters, especially the hero/heroine.

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

First I am a big fan of Dianne's, I absolutely loved Darkness Dawns and waited quite impatiently for Night Reigns. Three quarters of the book did not dissapoint; Marcus and Ami are awesome together and I loved the fact that Ami is as bad assed as Marcus is HOT! The um love scenes......well lets just say I am still fanning myself and has made for some interesting...well never mind. I liked that Roland and Sarah were still prominent players, I enjoyed them this time almost as much as last time and ...more

If you read my review on Darkness Dawns, you should remember how much I loved it. Night Reigns was just as good, if not better. I loved this book. Marcus and Ami are so right for each other. I loved their easiness with each other. I loved that there was no angst. Ami is just too cute and could melt anyone's heart. While there is a lot of romance, Night Reigns also has its share of action scenes. The fight scenes are exciting and I found myself holding my breath a time or two.

4 Sterne für die ersten 75% des Buches und 1 Stern für den Rest!

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.

(view spoiler) Nichts deutete für mich daraufhin, dass sowas auch nur ansatzweise in der Welt bei denen vorkommt.

In Night Reigns, Dianne Duvall proves that she is extremely talented as a writer and has accomplished another wonderful book in the Immortal Guardian series! The romance is swoon worthy and can be easily devoured in one sitting due to the impact this book puts on the reader.

I liked the story, although I couldn't seem to get invested in the characters like I did in Book One. I read Darkness Dawns a year ago, and I gave it five stars. Looks like reading book one was just too long ago to remember some details of the series. Of course, I've never been a fan of love at first sight, and that's what it was for Ami and Marcus. I like the development to becoming a relationship, and there wasn't any with this couple. I've learned my lesson with a series. Read a series in ord ...more

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

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
