Darkness Rises (Immortal Guardians #4)
I must be weird or wrong in the head. I did not like this book. Hashtag fricking NOPE.
B!tch please. Krysta, our fair heroine, girl if I met your selfish a$$, vampire hunter or not, your throat would be black and blue from my punches. You are a terrible, self centered heroine who puts everyone in danger to meet your own needs. Ugh.
The hero, Etienne, he had a few moments but few is the keyword. Gah!
The steamy stuff. Please. Nothing steamy there. No c ...more
This time focusing on Etienne, Dianne Duvall has given us another fantastically fast paced, action-packed and humorous story featuring, once again, a gorgeously sexy Immortal finding himself a strong woman, and a straight-talking couple who are open about their feelings, follow their hearts and have a hot, drama-free, functional relationship.
Krysta is a fighter. As a human, she has been fighting vampires ...more
Krysta and her brother Sean have been fighting vampires for the past six years. Hunting one night Krysta accidentally attracts an Immortal Guardian as well as a large group of vampires. Just when the tides of battle with the vampi ...more
Darkness Rises is Dianne's best work yet!
The Immortal Guardians rock down the house in this action packed book. A phenominal power couple heat up the pages, Krysta and Étienne are fantastic.
I really loved getting to touch bases again with old friends from her previous novels. We as readers don't get to see that very often so its nice to see previous characters continuing on well after their individual novels.
I loved ge ...more
I whipped through these books in record time and now I’m stuck waiting on the next one in the series. I have so many questions and want to know more about Za ...more
First read October 1, 2013, and still loving the series. I just wish it hadn’t stopped at book 6. There are so many other characters that deserve their own books, especially my favorites Seth and David.
Although I did like Etienne and Krysta’s story, even though it was really hard to believe she had been hunting and killing vampires for six years and she was mortal. And at the end you did find out why there was no chance she would be killed, even though she (and WE) didn’t know i ...more

This was another great addition to this series. Krysta and Etienne are perfect for each other and I love them both. The storyline is interesting and engaging (as usual) and my only issue with this book is it ending and having to wait for the next book to come out to see what happens next! *sigh*
Krysta is pretty kickass. She's a Vampire hunter (with the help of her brother as backup) and has been doing it for 6 years. She's never met a sane vampire before but one night when she encount ...more
I love how everyone rallies around Ami, even without knowing the reasons it’s so import ...more
2.5 to 3 stars (would be 1 star but I actually liked the non-romance parts so I rated it higher)
This was a pretty big disappointment to me. At first, I thought the heroine, Krysta, was sassy and fun, and then once I learned more about her, I ended up being completely disgusted by her. Really. She was the most selfish thing ever. By 50%, I just had to skim all of her parts with the hero, Etienne because I couldn't stand to even read about her. I only tuned in to scenes with others, or sought out ...more
I have no idea why the author chose to write this story about a character we have barely seen in prior books. I had zero interest in Etienne. He has such minor roles in the prior books that there was nothing intriguing about him. His heroine was a tough chick. I liked her. Kept expecting her to piss me off, but she did not. I just was not feeling the chemistry. They d ...more
This book started out really good & I couldn't put to down. I'm not quite sure what happened, but somewhere in the 40% through it became really really cheesy.
A girl and her brother live together in a hobble of a house while he goes to medical school & she hunts vampires. They also have menial jobs & they barely get by. I wasn't quite sure why they were so poor & living in a shack. I thought maybe their parents died, but low and behold they aren't. They are alive & pretty muc ...more
“Abruptly, the song “Squirrels in My Pants” from Phineas and Ferb filled the air.”
Way to ruin a moment, if you ask me.
Page turner: YES
Part in a series
Krysta met Étienne while she was battling vampires thinking he is one of them, what with him with fangs and the glowing eyes. Although, his aura is a swirl of white mixed in with violet, and the vampires with a manic of orange. Étienne was, for all intents and purposes, savings Kryta’s ass.
The story, from the start, captured me all along. F ...more
I loved this series from the start, with its endearing characters and smart plot. The family of Immortals, gifted ones and seconds keeps getting bigger, stronger and funnier. They range from somewhat clueless to antisocial, and everything good in between, even the vampire “bad guys” get to their humor in.
This book about tender, sweet and old-fashioned ...more
I really liked it, minus some few things here and there....
The chemistry between Krysta and Etienne was really cool, but the steam factor was turned down a bit in this book. I would have liked for them to take the relationship deeper and also more of them together, felt the book was a little rushed at times.
I say the plot thickens.... yeah.... what is it with that comment about why are there to many "gifted ones" in the area... and Seth and Zach.. w ...more
Dianne Duvall hit it out of the park again. I absolutely loved this book. I have to say Etienne and Krysta have jumped to my second favorite Immortal Guardians couple. This book not only had their love story but included several scenes with previous characters. Some secrets come to light while new ones surface and creating more questions for the Immortals future. It was captivating and action packed. Kept you guessing.
Étienne d’Alençon is an Immortal Guardian. Tasked with protecting humans from vampires, he and his siblings, along with other Immortal Guardians, hunt each night, but no matter how many vampires they take out more seem to fill the void. One night while on patrol Étienne comes across Krysta Linz, a human vampire hunter. Even though she has some serious mad fighting skillz he decides to follow her ...more
It's been a while since I dropped into the Immortal Guardian world and I had forgotten just how much I love it. This was a great book to get me back into it.
Sean and Krysta made this book for me. I loved the siblings who have been fighting vampires together with no real training or experience for 6 years. And they really have been working blind. They have no idea about the Immortals or Seconds although Krysta has heard rumblings from the v ...more
BUT to tell the truth I did not enjoy this book AS MUCH as the previous installment of this series. At this point I think d’Alencon twins
got royally screw, let me explain that: I was so excited to read about Richart because the need to know who was his mystery lady was KILLING me and I REALLY wanted to know how and why Sheldon ...more
Love it! Not that I am surprised at all. I have loved this entire series. Dianne Duvall is just fantastic and she knows how to write an engaging book. I can't stop once I start. I started the audio book at work but my work day ended and I wanted to stay.. ! seriously that's how into the book I was.
Krysta was another badass female lead like the rest of the women in this series. What I love about these books is that yes they all can seriously kick some ass but ...more
This series continues to be a great, entertaining and wild read with its world full of strong, intriguing characters that bewitch the reader and continue to draw them deeper into the adventure.
When Krysta comes across an immortal warrior, Etienne, who saves her life, she’s not sure what to think after all she is on a mission to kill all vampires. Etienne is immediately i ...more
I think I still love Richart more, but Etienne turned out to be uber sweet and I LOVED how perfect Krysta was for him. I didn't always feel all the chemistry, but part of that was because there was so much going on, that the love story was almost ...more
