4 I Wanted More Of Cassie Stars

I liked this book a lot but I wanted it more focused on Cassie and Caine than the rest of the characters. I was especially disappointed of how much space Gaius occupied.

Ooooh, finally Caine and Cassie's story!! Okay, I'm not finish Salvatore's book yet, but of course I know about Caine!

The frontcover not appaling, but see the stepback :

Wooo the hoooo!! Sexy, sexy!
And because the translated version will most likely never include this stepback, I think I will buy the English version *grin*
3 plus stars = pretty good.

I liked the bits with Caine and Cassie in Fear the Darkness, but unlike the early books the romance was a really small part of the story and Cain and Cassie's romance was pretty straight forward.

I...liked...the rest but gosh, there were so many past and future characters in the book that I think that almost everyone in the series turned up -that's a slight exaggeration but it sure felt like the whole gang was there. While I liked seeing Viper, Styx, and Salvadore, and

Quick & Dirty: Great installment for fans of the series, with a dark and creative world. Had me hooked, can’t wait to start this series from the beginning.

Opening Sentence: The abandoned silver mine in the Mojave Desert wasn’t the first place someone would expect to encounter Styx, the current Anasso.

The Review:

Fear the Darkness begins with Cassie and Caine on the run. Cassie is a prophet and many people would like to use her to further their own power. Ca

I have loved this series right from the start and have eargerly awaited each one and I wasn't disappointed by this one but on the other hand I wasn't wowed either!

I think some of the problem is that more than a few times I was racking my brain trying to remember lesser known characters or things that happened in the past that were now relevant. Unfortunately this is a common sort of problem when it is so long between re

Apa yang kau inginkan dari sebuah paranorm karakter? Sebut saja vampire, werewolf, fae, penyihir, peramal, gargoyle ? semua akan muncul di sini.

When she was born, she and her 3 sisters were separated and hidden. Unfortunately Cassie has spent her life hidden from humanity be an evil dark lord, because Cassie has visions of the future.

You know what they say about Karma right? Well I'm sure Caine certainly does! He's spent so much time being an evil bastard that fate has come up with the most delicious punishment. He got his wish to turn from cur to a pureblood Were but at the same time he has taken on the task of protecting the most valuable creature in the world from dark forces. Unfortunately for him, he finds her irresistible and his newly found conscience is firm on not taking advantage of

Loved Cassie and Caine's connection, for the most part.

I really enjoyed the first six books of this series. Things (events, plot line, etc.) started to go a bit caddywampus in book 7. Book 8 was confusing as it seemed the plot lines fragmented and went in some strange di

Fear the Darkness is the ninth book in the Guardians of Eternity series by Alexandra Ivy. The Guardians of Eternity is one of the series that I will keep and cherish forever.

Book 9, Fear the Darkness has it all with some possessive, alpha male action, steamy romance, good vs. evil and of course a gargoyle that will make any girl giggle. If you have not read the previous books in this series, I would highly recommend doing so. While this book can stand on its own, there are a number of previous story lines that lead up to this one and explain the various creatures that a

Prophecies and the cryptic predictions that come with seers are a favorite element in books for me. The tension and speculation that is added to a book by this makes the pages fly by with anticipation. I have loved Cassandra from the moment she was introduced in this series. I loved the fact that she misunderstood many things due to her naiveté and taking things quite literally. Thus I have been looking forward to this book.

Fear the Darkness is the ninth book in The Guardians of Eternity series. Cassie, a were, is the only known prophet. Caine was once a cur but was transformed into a full blooded were. He has taken the role of protector, but his feelings for Cassie go beyond duty.

I absolutely loved Cassie and Caine together. She has basically been held a prisoner her whole life. She is naïve in some ways, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Caine is seeking redemption for his past mistakes, and wants to

Review of Fear the Darkness by Alexandra Ivy

This is book 9 in the Guardians of Eternity series. I had read the first 4 books, have books 5 and 6 sitting in my TBR pile, but haven’t stayed current with the series. I will have to rectify that. I forgot how much I enjoyed Ms. Ivy’s books.

Because I haven’t read all the books, there were some characters and plot threads that I was unfamiliar with. So I would get a little distracted at some points, trying to make connections and understanding the sig

I really liked the bond between Caine and Cassie..I just wish there was more to it. I found myself equally attracted to the story of Caine/Cassie and with Gaius. Felt almost like the story lines were competing for attention. The piece at the end was good..really happy with Levet:) I felt that Caine/Cassie's ending was a bit rushed..or just needed more closer. I really liked the piece with Gaius in the end. Because of that..assuming he's the next

I will start out by saying I have not read the first 8 books in the series. Because of this, I found myself a little lost and unsure of all the characters and how they tied into this story. I of course love any book with werewolves, witches, curs, vampires, and demons!

I found this book to be about the battle of good vs. evil and of course a love story! Cassie is the “Prophet” that was altered

Une superbe conclusion! Revoir tous les héros précédents, c'était tout bonnement magnifique! J'adore quand un auteur montre dans ses romans que le lien entre les personnages perdure à travers chaque nouveau tome, que ce n'est pas parce qu'un tome est consacré à un couple que les autres ne peuvent plus intervenir sous prétexte que la romance serait mal exploitée. Au contraire, montrer que tout le monde s'aide, c'est le must. Bravo Alexandra Ivy!

With a general rating over 4 , I guess I'm odd man out. A 2 read for me is a book I finish, but takes a lot of skimming to do so.

I've read this entire series so far, and it's never really been great, but it was at least entertaining. I'm failing to be amused now. (unless eye-rolling counts)

- Cassandra je vlkodlačice, čtvrtá sestra Darcy, Regan a Harley. Kromě toho že byla třicet let držena v naprosté izolaci v jeskyni Temným lordem, je Cassie také prorokem. Z jeskyně ji zachrání Caine, pes - jako člověk byl kousnut vlkodlakem. Cassandra je jako prorok často vtažena do svých vizí, které nemůže ovládat, a kdyby jí Caine nepomáhal, byla by chycena a nejspíš zkoumána v lidské laboratoři.

Fear The Darkness is book nine in the Guardians of Eternity series by Alexandria Ivy.

This is Caine and Cassie's story, who where introduced in Beyond the Darkness and have had little features in installments after. I have been waiting to get their story and Ms. Ivy did not disappoint. In Bound By Darkness everyone was looking for Cain and Cassie. Here we get to see their journey and what became of them. We also get to learn about Cain’s history before he became a Cur. Lev

This is one of those series that I'd probably forget if you asked me to name my favorites but I have enjoyed every book in it. That said, this was not one of my favorites, but it hit a personal pet peeve so if it's not your pet peeve you'd likely enjoy it more than me. The beginning was rough because that's where most of my pet peeve comes into play. I liked Caine & Cassie in previous books so I was expecting to like their story.
