"Alexandra Ivy has me hooked on this series, craving it like I would the finest chocolates."

Alexandra Ivy created a winner with this combination of sexy, gorgeous hero, a courageous heroine who's more than a match for him, sly humor, action, magic and hot passion guaranteed to sizzle a page or two.

Regan, kidnapped and abused from young, is a pureblood Were who was finally rescued from her kidnapper, Culligan. However, when Culligan escaped, she vowed not to rest until she has him in her grasp an...more

Seperti wine, semakin lama gaya menulis Alexandra Ivy semakin bagus.
Buku ini juga lebih bagus dari sebelumnya, walau masih belum terlalu jelas arah cerita mau dibawa kemana.

Jagr, oh Jagr. Keren sangat, tortured hero emang keren ;). Apalagi tortured hero with big and soft heart like Jagr. Dan gw juga suka banget ama Regan. Tokoh wanita favorit. Ga lemah, keras kepala, dan yg bagus dari Jagr-Regan, mereka ada proses untuk menga...more

Enjoyable read. The reclusive vampire hero is sent to rescue the vampire king's sister-in-law - who doesn't want to be rescued. By anyone. Especially a vampire with control issues...

Although reading a series in order is always better, it is not imperative with this one.

3.5 stars -Physically Free, Yet Imprisoned By Their Pasts - Love Is The Key

Regan, one of Darcy's other quadruplet sisters is freed from 30 years of imprisonment and torture, and is on the hunt to wreck vengeance on her captor. Regan comes to the story with a whole lot of anger and baggage, apart from the psychological scars from her imprisonment and abuse, the rejection by the were-king Salvatore - because the non-shifting bioengineered pureblood Regan is sterile and of no use as a breeder - o...more

This is a paranormal romance that uses all the cliches - brooding, damaged goods Alpha vampire is emotionally healed through his obsessive and devoted love for damaged goods, highly spirited heroine. If those cliches drive you nuts, pass this series by. If, on the other hand, you are a fan of Sherilyn Kenyon (and therefore like this formula), this is a good series to follow. This 5th book in the series focuses on Jagr, a hermetic vampire who was once tortured for 300 years, and a 30 year old gen...more

Darkness Unleashed (Guardians of Eternity, #5) by Alexandra Ivy
Alexandra Ivy

I love Ms. Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series. The characters are unique, kooky and so flipping hilarious. Jagr is such a wounded warrior and so tried of the politics of the Vamps clan. Poor Regan is free, but still haunted. Regan thinks Jagr is arrogant, bossy and a PITA (pain in the a$$)! Regan also wants to crawl up in his arms! Jagr uses kisses just to shut her up! Jar's scarred heart is slowing awakened by Regan's sassy and sexiness! Ms. Ivy writes such smart, fast paced and h...more

A wherewolf feeling lost just released after 30 years of torture and a vampire who loves his solitude trying to help her re-unite with a long lost sister and her revenge she can´t give up.
Loved it and love Regan and Jagr´s story and the continued clues to Salvatore who disappeared at the end, now i have to hurry along to his story, =)
Mandy
I read Darkess Unleashed in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down!
I felt so sorry for Jagr and I found myself screaming at Regan most of the time. But as always it all works out. I cant wait to read about what happens with salvadore, I just love all of her books and highly recommend them to anyone.
Jessica Hatfield
I gave it four stars because Regan made me want to shake the crap out of her. Poor Jagr didn't he live through enough but to have a stupid mate that pushed him away but other then her chicken ways making me wanna slap her the story was great

Kebayang kan kerennya kek apa vampir yg satu ini ??

This book didn't dissapoint. It's just as good as the others. I loved Jagr and Regan. I have to say Styx is still my favorite.

This one has quite the cliffhanger. The story never slows so it keep you moving through the book with a flow.

I really love Jagr's character! He is one big "teddy bear". I want one!!!

Ooh wee but I loved Jagr. I expected him to be cold and aloof throughout the book and thought that he would be the one who needed convincing that the female was his mate but was totally shocked to realize that he needed to convince the stupid and stubborn female.

Alexandra Ivy has a recurring habit of making a reader like a villian, or rather a character one would assume would be less liked. And that has been the case with the Ugly Gargoyle Levet! I love him! And he

After meeting Jagr in Darkness Revealed I wanted to read his story. Alexandra Ivy delivered a sexy gorgeous hero, courageous heroine, sly humor, action, suspense and hot passion. I crave this series like I crave ice cream. I am total hooked and always ready to read more.

I had so much fun reading Darkness Unleashed . I feel in love with Jagr right from the beggining and wanted to know everything about him. What happened to him? Why does he stay away from his fellow...more
Les Chroniques Aléatoires
Un volume totalement différent qui se démarque par le choix d’un déroulement à la "road movie", le couple phares, Jagr et Regan, n’étant pas dans un endroit fixe et toujours en pleine course poursuite. Et pour une fois, ce sont eux les chasseurs (okay, pas pendant toute l’histoire), ce qui changent pas mal de la pauvre fille en danger que le beau vampire doit protéger.

Jagr avait été introduit dans le volume précédent de façon assez explosive et comme étant une personne plus qu’un peu flippante....more

Darkness Unleashed by far is my favorite in the series. We are introduced to the second of four genetically altered were sister who were born 30 years prior and subsequently kidnapped in infancy. Regan was held prisoner and tortured by an imp name Culligan. After escaping she cannot fathom enjoying life until she hunts down her captor and kills him. Regan's sister, Darcy wants her found, returned and kept safe so her husband Styx enlists the assistance of Jagr, a recluse vampire who also had bee...more

What is it about romantic stories about vampire and werewolf couples, first Lucien and Sonia, partly Selene and Michael Corvin, Styx and Darcy, and now Jagr and Regan. There may have been a great deal of stories before Darkness Unleashed but the story of Jagr and Regan was just perfect. To have a glimpse of the inner thoughts and feelings of two people who had been tortured for years but who were now experiencing the need to be with someone else or to care so much for someone else, was extremely...more

From some of the other reviews I had skimmed over before starting this book, I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I have the rest of the series. There seemed to be a somewhat less than stellar opinion of Regan, so I was braced for her to annoy me. I was pleasantly surprised when she didn't.

This time around, we get the story of the brooding, isolated ancient vampire Jagr - historian, recluse, warrior. His almost monastic life keeps him out of tribe business, but when his King commands him, he c...more

SYNOPSIS: Book five of the Guardians of Eternity series revolves around Jagr whom we met in Book 4 (Darkness Revealed) . Jagr is a recluse, who shuns his clan and has no loyalty to his King. He is a former Visigoth Chieftain who dislikes others’ company and does not take orders easily. It’s with great reluctance that he agrees to do the King’s bidding when ordered to Chicago. His prey - the Anasso’s sister-mate, Regan.

Regan is one of quadruplets that were stolen as babes; because of their purebl...more

Darkness Unleashed ของอเล็กซานดร้า ไอวี่

หนังสือเล่มนี้เป็นเล่มที่ห้าในชุด Guardians of Eternity ซึ่งอ่านมาแล้วห้าเล่มก็ยังไม่เข้าใจความหมายค่ะ

จุดเด่นในงานเขียนของอเล็กซานดร้าก็คือ หนังสือของเธอไม่มีความเป็นชุดที่มากจนเกินไป การเกาะเกี่ยวของเรื่องราวในแต่ละเล่มจะเป็นที่ตัวละครมากกว่าที่พล็อต ดังนั้นจึงไม่จำเป็นเลยค่ะที่จะต้องอ่านเรียงกันมาตั้งแต่เล่มแรก แม้ว่าในเล่มนี้จะมีการสปอยล์เรื่องราวในเล่มสามของชุดไปบ้างเล็กน้อย แต่ก็ไม่ได้เสียหายอะไรร้ายแรง

เพราะความเลวร้ายในอดีตที่เขาถูกทรมานนานหลายร้อยปี...more

I wanted to like this book so badly. I love the rest of the series so much! And I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, it was out of stock on Amazon so I ordered it from an American company and waited roughly two weeks for it and read it in one sitting.

This would have gotten five stars since I did really love it, but there were several glaring errors within the book that were quite distracting. First, there were several times in which there was a word missing from the writing. However, that is not as annoying as the second glaring mistake... there was a character within the story whose name kept changing. That would be the character of Sadie (or is it Sophie?). Now, it was only in the beginning that the switch occurred, but it was annoying as...more

Review by Cassandra from Book Talk

My Thoughts

We met the Jagr in the previous book and now we get a deeper look into dangerous and powerful recluse. Ever since Darkness Everlasting, which told the story of Styx and Darcy, the location of Darcy's sisters has been a mystery. Now one has been found and Jagr is charged with the duty of bringing her to her family without harm. Jagr has kept to himself for centuries and doesn't like the company of others. Now he is forced into contact with the populati...more

Well,

Not being a big fan of urban paranormals, have to say I must have been in the mood for something very different to lose myself in when I picked this up. Let's not forget it was only a buck.

This book is #5 in a series, so I jumped right into the middle with this one. I won't read anymore unless I trip over one in the 2nd hand store again. But I did enjoy it and found it entertaining with all the odd ball characters thrown in the mix...vampires, werewolves, imps, witches, you name it.

I'm not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother's knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt...more
