First Read 5/2014 Reread 2/2019
Darkness Rises, the 4th book in the Immortal Guardians series was really good. I am really enjoying this reread. The narrator is doing an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. She nails the accents, gives each person their own voice and is really making this book for me. Kirsten Potter is just kick ass and I would listen to any book she narrators.
It was so nice to get Etienne's book. I love the french siblings so much. Etien ...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
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

Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple--she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpecte ...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
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 much middle class peopl ...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
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

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 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 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
The world of the Immortal Guardians is one of my favorite world. I love how unique each characters are and the plot and world building and the writing is so amazing and engaging. I'm so glad to be back on this world.😍

Okay, but WHAT is DD's thing with having women who are physically stronger than their men? Honestly, I love that my hubs is ten times stronger than me. It means he can lift heavy stuff and I can stand by and enjoy the view. WIN WIN. I love a kick-ass heroine as much as the next gal, but kick-ass heroine kicking her h ...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.
The narrator did a great performance.
I'm re-reading the Immortal Guardian series because book 8 Awaken the Darkness is due out on 10th July 2018 and I wanted to reacquaint myself with the characters and remind myself of the action so far before Amazon kindly deliver it to my Kindle... Krysta is still one my of least favourite characters, if anything I'm more frustrated with her this time around than before but the surrounding stories and characters keep my rating high.

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
