SUMMARY (50 words or less)
Okay, it’s been a while since I read this series. I spent the first several chapters trying to reacquaint myself with the series. Still this book was on the move. It m...more
Phantom Shadows was packed with ass-kicking action, good doses of romance and by the Gods I laughed with these immortals!
I enjoyed entering into the world of the Immortal Guardians once again but I have to say I was worried to read this one. The stunt pulled in the last book (yes, Ami, that's with you) kind of freak me out, I didn't like it at all and that made me worried about future books, but I read two pages and all my worries were left behind. All I cared a...more
(view spoiler)[OK, we get it already. Everyone hates Bastien. Do we have to be reminded of that EVERY.DAMN.TIME there's any sort of gathering. And i don't like him getting his ass kicked so much either. I kinda see w...more
I adore stories where the underdog finally wins the girl but not too often is the good guy a bad guy that everyone wants to see executed. It takes a special woman to not only see beyond the common perception and clamoring for blood, but to also be able to see the truth of the man inside. The challenge for the heroine is to open everyone else’s eyes to the truth as well. Such is the story of Melanie and Bastien.
Phantom Shadows is a rea...more

Sebastien Newcombe is the Black Sheep of the Immortal Guardians. He had previously thought he was a vampire and led an uprising against the Immortal Guardians - then found out that he was really one of the Immortal Guardians himself. Add the uprising to the fact that Bastien had also killed one of the IG's years earlier - he's not exactly Mr. Popularity.

Dr. Melanie Lipton is struggling to find a cure for the madness that eventually attacks all vampires. She befriends the vampires in her care and has always been kind to Bastien. Bastien is...more
I have been waiting for Bastian's book since the end of Night Reigns. Phantom Shadows picks up not to long after the events in Night Reigns and it kept up its action and momentum. Bastian is unlike any of the other Immortal Guardians and they despise him in response. He goes out of his way to encourage their animosity. Only a few people like Bastian and only one understands him: Dr. Melanie Lipton.
Melanie was a good fit for Bastian. She was strong, smart and willing to open herself to B...more

Sebastien Newcombe was the villain from Darkness Dawns who believed he was a vampire. He was the nemesis of the hero of that book, Roland Warbrook, and led a vampire attack against the Immortal Guardians. To top things off, he once killed an Immortal Guardian.
And then he found out that he,...more
I really like the series, but I've decided my one big problem is that I just don't care abo...more

Hmmm ... so, I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. If you are looking for the intense, ramped up Black Dagger Brotherhood-esque stories? These are not the droids you're looking for. If you want emotionally damaged men, saved by falling in love with good women, with a minimum of relationship angst? BINGO! You have won the gift card to the Friday night buffet at David's house.
Some of the elements that worked in the first two books got a bit tired by round three. I was hear...more
In a nutshell, the characters that I have become addicted to all showed up to kick-ass and take names. The alpha male meter was on full blast...more
Phantom Shadows is book 3 in the the Immortal Guardian series, featuring Bastian an Melanie. Their was not enough love and romance in the story between Bastian and Melanie. They were together a lot, but mostly they were attacked in some way by vampires or the human mercenaries who were out to destroy them and poor Melanie was always severely hurt. The few love scenes were OK. Also I didn't like the fact toward the end when Melanie had to be converted to Immor...more
Bastien’s past with the Immortal Guardians is not a good one. Before Bastien knew that he himself was an Immortal Guardian, he thought he was just a vampire and using his vampire army he was going to overthrow the Guardians. Now he works with the Guardians t...more
Phantom Shadows in the third book in the Immortal Guardians series. Ms. Duvall’s vampire world is action packed and filled with deliciously sexy immortals. Need I say more?
Bastien could be a poster child for bad boys; gorgeous, angry, misunderstood and tortured. Man you gotta love them bad boys! For the last two years, he has been working with the Immortal Guardians. All of his existence has been trying to destroy them, so it’s understandable that they are leery of him and would rather...more
Last year, this was one of my new favorite series and I have been dying for Bastien's book. The original bad-guy (in book #1) this is an Immortal that has been on the outside for much too long, when he didn't know any better.
Now, three books later, he has settled into the Immortals group, although no one is very comfortable with the fact. He is daily faced with outright distrust and aggression. What makes this so heartbreaking is the fact that he's truly a good guy. He's always out th...more
