Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
I loved Anna and Cezar story. The series is getting much better I was really on the fence with the first story but I have come to love the others that have followed. Cezar was sweet and sexy and, Anna was cute but maybe she could have kicked a little more butt, but it had a good story line. Also I would like to say I love Levet!!!!!!!!

I'm still diggin' Alexandra Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series and "Darkness Revealed" is book four. This series is about smoking hot vampires, sexy werewolves, powerful goddesses, wily fairies, snarky gargoyles, and most anything else that goes 'bump in the night'. While these stories are every bit as hot as many others available, for me this author keeps the tone lighter. There's still action, mystery, and suspense--but the sense of looming evil isn't there...and I enjoy that for a change!

One night of passion and your whole world changes, could you hold a grudge for two centuries?
I guess so if you think that the man you shared the most passionate experience of your life suddenly disappeared the very night that you lose your family and found yourself "different" from everyone else.

I adored this tale of Anna who is trying to find out what she is and why someone is trying to kill her. Her guardian Cezar who she shared a passionate encounter with 200 years ago is suddenly at her side

I finally got a book in this series that was really worth the hype. Anna Randal was watching out for her cousin when she got pulled into a dark room and her life changed FOREVER.
200 years later, Anna finds Conde Cezar and she is bound to make him pay for taking a bite of her.

First of all, Anna is no simpering female. Second, she is a geninely thoughtful person. I have noticed that the women in this series are kind hearted. One took in a gargoyle, another is a vegetarian despite being a werewolf,

Di luar dugaan, pasangan yang ini tidak kalah menarik dibaca walaupun datang dari dunia hisrom yang anggun. Walau sudah terpisah hampir 2 abad, one night stand Conde Cezar dan Anna masih menghantui mereka berdua. Walaupun seperti umumnya pasangan abad itu, mereka sibuk denial dan menyalahkan. Tapi sisi menyentuhnya mereka tidak bisa saling melupakan.

Yang aku suka di sini, Cezar punya kualitas besar sebagai hero yang menggoda iman. Dia Lord yang anggun dan rupawan. Dia juga seksi, jago merayu dan
This series continues to be one I like... but not enthusiastically. Dont get me wrong- it's got some great characters and perhaps that is why I continue reading. (You can plot your book like Plotty Plotterton but if you dont write engaging characters I care about? You've lost me.)

In Darkness Revealed we have a couple who have a history- which is what initially drew me in to the story, a Vampire hero and a heroine once again unaware of the incredible magic that lies within her.

This is a vampire romance series set in modern-day Chicago. The couple in this book is Anna Randal (she's part fey and destined to become an oracle after fighting Morgana la Fey, fairy Queen) and Conde Cezar, a hot Spanish 500 year old vampire who has been the unwilling servant of the oracles for the last 200 years. All of heros/heroines from previous books in the series make appearances, and a couple new heros for future books are introduced. No one will mistake this series for great literature ...more
(3.5 Stars Really)
Anna Randall would prefer to stay out of the spotlight and in hindsight wishes she had been less attentive to her chaperone duties for a rich relative the night she met master vampire, Conde Cezar. Completely attracted to and enthralled by Cezar, Anna looses more than her virtue and awoke to a possible scandal, her family dead and immortality. Having taken a bit of Anna's blood has bound Cezar to the Oracles and his latest assignment is to protect Anna which plays havoc on him

Conde Cezar ditugaskan oleh Komisi utk menjaga dan melindungi Anna Randall sebagai calon oracle di masa depan. Sayangnya Anna sangat keras kepala karena pertemuan mereka sebelumnya 200 tahun yang lalu menyebabkan Anna kehilangan seluruh keluarganya.
Cezar yang tidak bisa melupakan pertemuannya dg Anna, bertekad utk menebus kesalahannya dgn melindungi Anna sekuat tenaga. Apalagi stl mengetahui bahwa Anna diburu oleh Morgana le Fay, sang ratu fairy, yang berambisi utk membunuh Anna, yang ditakdirka

Selese juga baca ceritanya si tusuk konde, ups, Conde Cezar.
Dikasih 4 bintang, sama aja kayak ceritanya Styx. Bagus tapi g bikin excited banget ;p

Ada campuran mitologi Arthur, yang bikin lumayan menarik. Selain itu baik Anna maupun Cezar sama-sama punya karakter. Sama-sama selibat nyaris 200 tahun, walau saling menyangkal perasaan masing2, tapi juga ga bisa menghindar.

Sayang nih, terjemahannya beberapa ngaco. Ada typo juga.

Suka banget sama buku ini, kesetiaan Conde Cezar ke Anna Randal setelah 195 tahun terbayar juga dengan hidup selibat Anna sepanjang itu. Walau di sertai dendam yang disimpan hampir 2 abad, akibat satu malam yg penuh gairah, pertemuan kembali mereka mau tidak mau mengikat mereka selama nya.
Anna yang tidak mengetahui dia adalah calon terkua anggota komisi Oracle, mencurigai motif si vampir keren Cezar melindungi nya dari kejaran Morgana si ratu peri.

I think that Cezar was a great hero for this book. Anna met him about 200 years ago and Cezar seduced her. he also took her blood. But neither he nor Anna could have ever expected what would happen next.
Cezar is ripped from Anna's sleeping form by the Oracles, and enslaved for 200 years for daring to take the blood of a fated Oracle.
Anna wakes up, goes home, finds her aunt's house burned to the ground, and assumes her aunt and cousing Morganna perished in the fire. Then she finds out she is immo

Alright, book four in the Guardians of Eternity Series and we're starting to understand the rules of this fantasy world. However, the two main characters are not ones we have met before, so a slight deviation from past paths. This time we follow Conde Cezar and Anna Randall.

I have to say the first half of the book was better than the second, mainly because Anna played hard to get in the beginning, and I kind of liked that. Once she had capitulated and Cezar was well and truly hooked, the story e

Cezar is noble and has been searching for this one woman for nearly 200 years. His reason is for protection but once he sets his eyes on her again, all the lust is there and he sole purpose is to make her his.

Anna has been searching for 200 years for the vampire that stole her heart and took her blood for answers. She is a lawyer for the people, a voice when one has none, but has come into powers that she can't explain.

Action packed, love, and all characters return. This is the main reason why

I keep waiting for this series to just wow me but so far it hasn't. It was a decent enough book that kept my attention but it just didn't give me the emotional roller coaster that I love so much in romance novels. This is an interesting series though where they seem to fall for each other early on in the book and then the story is about the life threatening dangers. I also find it interesting how the female leads in these books are more powerful than the male leads. Anyway, it's a decent enough ...more

Good read, but I feel like it is a carbon copy of the three books written in the series prior to this one. It goes something like this... Vampire meets girl. Vampire falls in love with girl. Girl falls in love with vampire. Something evil is after girl. Vampire protects girl and beats the evil something. Vampire makes girl his life mate. They live happily ever after. I feel like I've read this story before but the characters names have changed. Don't get me wrong it was a good story but maybe th ...more

For me a 3 is a good read. The author's voice is quite pleasant and her characters engaging. There are some plot and continuity issues, but it doesn't mean I haven't enjoyed them, because I certainly have. This particular story was just a bit weaker for me than the others.

Cézar was almost too sweet. I'd like to see him a bit more Alpha-ish and I needed him a little more badass. His history is as a warrior, the author just didn't give him much of a chance to show it. At least he dresses a bit be

- Anna si myslela, že je obyčejný člověk, dokud nepotkala Cézara. Jak si jinak vysvětlit, že je stará dvě stě let? A kam se poděl Cézar? Šlechtic, se kterým strávila noc, ráno se probudila sama a posléze zjistila, že nestárne. Anna je na jednu stranu schopná se o sebe postarat - je právnička -, ale jakmile má myslet v přítomnosti Cézara, stává se z ní chudinka, co si sama ani nedokáže zavázat tkaničku.

Mais il n’empêche qu’elle arrive à y apporter une petite nouveauté ! En effet l’histoire de ce couple débute 200 ans plus tôt à Londres et nous avons donc droit à des flash-back dans les premiers chapitres.

Darkness Revealed is book four in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series.
The story flowed magically. Alexandra knows how to pull her audience in and keep us entertained, with a strong plot, action, adventure, and just the right amount of romance.

Anna I enjoyed from the moment we meet her. The superhero references she makes add humor to the story. I also liked that she did not freak out when learning about the demon world and all the different kids of demons
In „Im Bann der Nacht“ treffen wir Anna und Cezar. 200 Jahre zuvor, verbrachten die zwei eine leidenschaftliche Nacht miteinander und dann verschwand Cezar. Anna war alleine, verängstigt und nicht ganz sicher, was genau sie war. Mit Kräften, die sie hasste und nicht kontrollieren konnte, schaffte sie es dennoch alleine zu überleben. Aber sie vergaß niemals den arroganten Mann, mit dem sie die Nacht verbracht hatte und gab ihm die Schuld, sie in diesen Freak verwandelt zu haben.
