A pretty good installment in Alexandra Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series. This one features the vampire, Santiago, who runs one of Viper's infamous demon clubs, paired with legendary vampire clan chief, Nefri. It's the first vampire/vampire pairing in the series.

Overall, Santiago and Nefri are good together. She's all beautiful icy reserve and he's all arrogant, smoldering hotness. They run around the Midwest in search of Santiago's sire, the vampire Gaius, who survived the last book and is abo

I just finished listening to Darkness Avenged in audio, and I really liked it.
This is book 10 in the Guardians of Eternity by Alexandra Ivy.

It's been a hot minute since I have dived into this world, and I was hit with that nostalgic feeling. I came to love this series a long time ago, and I am lucky enough to have the 13th book in my possession. (arc)

This book was really good, It had not ONE but TWO romances involved.
I love how Alexandra creates a world that you can just close your eyes and feel

Alex has squeezed so much awesome into this installment of her Guardians of Eternity series. It almost feels like two books in one. Readers are not only introduced to what I am assuming is the couple for the next book, but we are given an amazing amount of page time with that couple. I have to say I cannot wait to read their book. They are already intense. Their book is going to be out of this world! As for the main couple for Darkness Avenged I enjoyed them in Fear the Darkness so continuing Ne ...more
Santiago is suffering from the loss of Nefri, she disappeared soon after the destruction of the Dark Lord. His moods are effecting all those around him, including the guest at the demon club. Styx shows up and tells Santiago that he needs him to use his bond to track down his sire, Gauis. Reluctantly, Santiago agrees.

Nefri has returned to the veil and her clan, but the Oracles aren't done with her yet and send her on a mission to find Gaius. Leading Nefri and Santiago on a collision coarse.

Darkness Avenged is book ten in the Guardians of Eternity series by Alexandra Ivy. AIvy has squeezed loads of awesomeness into this installment. It’s full of action, romance, and plot twists and turns.

Santiago and Nefri had to team up in the last book, Fear the Darkness, to help stop the Dark Lord, so ever since that team up both have not been able to get the other off their minds. Santiago is a sexy alpha male that would make any girl droll. I was total enthral
2013 Review
Ok, I struggled a little with this one but think it was solely because I had to keep flicking back through the previous full story to refresh my memory of certain characters and sequence of events. The problem is that as I read so many books with different plots and characters etc I find it impossible to retain all that information in my little grey cells and Darkness Avenged picks up directly after the end of Fear The Darkness. If I had known that I would have waited until I could ha

Boleh dibilang novel ini 2 pasang sejoli yg dikombinasikan dlm 1 buku. Pasangan Santiago - Nefri dan Roke - Sally. Lumayan menghibur terutama Roke dan Sally yg punya keinginan saling bertolak belakang.

Une lecture plaisante. Je dois avouer que je n'attendais rien de ce tome et du coup j'ai plutôt été agréablement surprise.

On connaissait déjà un peu les deux personnages de cette histoire. D'un coté Santiago qui est un vampire classique, sur de lui, dangereux et un peu sauvage qui se cache derrière son image pour pleurer l'abandon de son "père" et de l'autre la reine des glace Nefri.
Celle ci était en revanche une surprise parce que derrière sa façade et do

Whew, talk about bang for your buck! 2 1/2 power couples, multiple villains, interweaving storylines, surprises around every corner... It was great!

I've been a GUARDIANS OF ETERNITY fan since the very beginning, & like any long running series, there comes a time where the books start to feel like filler. I was getting a bit worried about that with this series becaus

Lisa - (Aussie Girl)
After the defeat of the Dark Lord in the previous instalment you would think that the Guardians of Eternity would have earned some down time. But no, because another evil entity has inhabited the mind of the traitorous vampire Gaius from beyond the Veil. Several characters are involved in the search, the featured couple Santiago and the legendary Nefri, the Anasso, Styx, the reluctant Roke who is accidently mated to the witch, Sally Grace and of course our favourite gargoyle Levett and the love ...more

What it's about: This is the 10th book (wow) of Alexandra Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series and centers around Nefri and Santiago. Santiago is hot, he's alpha, he's dominant and he's sexy. For readers who have been with the series for a while we finally get to Santiago's story! The Oracle has given Nefri a job, one where she has to work with Santiago. The chemistry is intense and Nefri is the perfect mate for him. There's action, adventure, a ton of violence and "mauling," which leads to awesom ...more
My least favorite of the series but still a good book. I think my main issue with the book was that I have been reading about them in other books for way too long and lost interest. I was also really, really disappointed with Nefri. I mean, here you have one of the oldest, most powerful creatures in the world and she was the biggest bore ever written in this series! How is that possible?! Santiago is great, love him, but he still couldn't make up for the fact that his heroin was lacking, big-tim ...more

I presume you know what the book is about. I'm letting you know what I liked or disliked about it.

A very good read :)

I recall thinking at one point that Sally may just be my most favorite female character I've ever read. There's just something about her I really like. And to think that maybe... just maybe there's more to follow of her story with Roke. Whom by the way just that interesting. Oh yes indeed. YUM

No disappointment on this latest book of this wonderful series of hers. Having read these two characters in previous book in series Santiago yet again meets up with Nefri when both sent on a quest but not together but must work together to get the answers they seek,along with her is Levet. This time they do not escape each other along the way. Also in between are the witch Sally and Roke and twit fight against their attraction for each other. Lots of adventure and romance. Well worth the read fr ...more
3 stars - I liked it. I have to say that I put this off since I wasn't too excited about Nefri as a leading lady - and the initial dynamic between the Ice Queen and the 'barbaric' hot blooded Santiago didn't really grab me - they ended being okay. But I have to agree with others about the start of the romance for a second pairing - vampire Roke and 'witch' Sally - they really 'made' the book for me. So overall with th e two romances (and despite the very minimal presence of savior of the world L ...more

I love these stories and creatures that come to life on the pages.
Although this is Santiago and Nefri's story I also loved the sparks that fly between Sally and Roke.
This book is intense and it kept on the edge of my seat.
The action, the twist and turns and of course scorching hot sex scene are off the charts.

While not my favourite book in the series I did enjoy it. I love it when Alex broadens the supe types a wee bit it always adds a little something to the story. Levet was as entertaining as ever and the tiny little glimpse of Jagr was just to tiny for me! :)

Kisah kali ini tentang Santiago, yang harus menemukan Gaius, yang diduga telah kembali dari Tabir semenjak ia bersekutu dengan Raja Kegelapan. Ditemani Nefri, vampir wanita yang mempesona sekaligus kepala Klan vampir tertua, untuk menemukan misteri di balik kembalinya Gaius yang disertai aura aneh.

Bingung sih mau komentar apa. Pertama aku memutuskan kalau aku nggak cocok bacaan vampir. Bukan tipe aku. Kedua, adegan aksinya kalah seru dengan petualangan Nefri-Santiago ketika melacak keberadaan Ga

Like I have said many times, but it bares repeating.. these are just really goof fluff books. They are all about the overly sexual male that's all protective and He-Manesq.. Then you have the tough as nails females that normally don't like domineering males, but finds this attractive all of a sudden, then BAM! Mated for life.

The reason I like these books? They don't try to be anything other then what they are. If I have read some intense stuff, I like picking up one of these to clear out the cob

REVIEW: Darkness Avenged is the tenth storyline in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity and oh, what a ride. There are three overlapping storylines that culminate in a final scene where the major players all seek retribution against the one vampire who has betrayed them all. At the end of Fear the Darkness, the Dark Lord had been destroyed and the tortured vampire Gaius had escaped through the Veil in search of someone long thought dead.

The main storyline focuses on vampires Santiago and Nefri.

Vampire demon romance

I liked the book. Obviously part of a series. Interesting read. Another story is started in this book and that story is left on a cliffhanger but the original story has a satisfying ending.

Honte sur moi, je l'avoue, ce livre traine depuis un an dans ma PAL étant donné que je devais à l'origine le lire en anglais. Mais pourquoi ne pas l'avoir lu jusqu'à maintenant ? Probablement parce que le couple formé par Nefri et Santiago est bien moins glamour que le précédent que j'avais adoré. Avec ce tome, Alexandra Ivy clôt définitivement l'arc de la guerre face au Seigneur des ténèbres, ce qui fait qu'on se retrouve avec un livre de transition. Bien que l'histoire soit moins fascinante qu ...more

Darkness Avenged is a paranormal romance that is number ten in the Guardians of Eternity series.

This story focuses around Santiago and Nefri with a side story with Roke and Sally. The stories seem to run parallel for awhile but they come together at the end of the book.

Santiago was a great character. He had a ton of confidence and was arrogant, as all vampires are but he had a real weakness for Nefri. She'd shown up in the club he managed and after what had happened between them in "Fear the Da

Rather than being out celebrating the defeat of the Dark Lord, Santiago can't stop thinking about the beautiful vampire who worked her way under his skin and then retreated behind the Veil. She frustrates and excites him and when he's sent after the vampire who betrayed their own kind, Santiago will get his hands on Nefri and he has no intentions letting her go. Nefri has lived centuries with her vampire clan behind the Veil where emotions are muted. Here, she's overwhelmed by Santiago and the i ...more
