Shadows Strike, the 6th book in the Immortal Guardians series, was a pretty good read. While I love Heather and enjoyed Ethan, the on-going plot was more interesting to me. A lot of things happen in this book and I really liked the action. Ethan and Heather were pretty basic as far as couples go. Nothing bad, but nothing really stood out for me. Aidan shined more in this book in my opinion than the hero.
I love that the others are slowly coming out ...more
Heather Lane has been reliving a nightmare every day for a while now. When the visions in her nightmare become a reality she is sucked into the supernatural world of the immortals and vampires.
Wow, Heather was truly an amazing character!
I could go on and on about the way I was drawn in by this couple and how amazing their romance was…and of course it was all that. But what caught me most about this story was its uniqueness to the rest of this serie ...more
This is one of the rare Paranormal Romance series in which I enjoy the main story arc as much, if not more than the lovin’. I have tons of theories, but no concrete leads as to the direction Dianne Duvall plans to go in with her IMMORTAL GUARDIANS, and that’s ok because it’s been one hell of a ride so far! Ethan’s one of the youngest, and least known of Seth’s warriors, and yet he still managed to steal my heart, and Heather fit right in with the other strong females tha ...more
"You're the best time I've ever had, Ethan."Heather Lane has had the same recurring nightmare for year now. She dreams of monsters that attack her in her back yard while a lone mythical creature of a different kind, who also stars in her dreams of the sexy variety, fights by her side. What will she do when the man of her dreams, literal ...more

Dianne Duvall did it again. She sucked me right into her newest installment of the Immortal Guardians series. The only thing stopping me from reading this in one sitting was my bodys need for food and sleep. It was that good.
I requested it on NetGalley without any hope of being accepted, but I wanted to try at least and when I was accepted I might have jumped around happily a little bit, but shh, don't tell ...more
I’m a huge fan of the Immortal Guardians series, and I couldn’t wait to dive back into this world. Like the other books in the series we get a hot, angst-free romance, heaps of action, brilliant character dynamics and lots of paranormal badassery. It’s intense from start to finish, and I absolutely loved it!
Ethan has been a bit of a background character in the series so far. As the youngest of the Immortal Guardians (he’s only 100 or so), he hasn’t been featured much, ...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
I adore this series so much. But I can say with certainly this is my least favorite. Now that doesn’t mean the story wasn’t good. But I think it’s the first I didn’t give perfect marks.

In Shadows Strike, the battle with the powerful and elusive Other, Gershom, gets even more expansive and potentially apocalyptic. The action reaches a grand scale with multiple battles against large forces of enemies. The action scenes are well written and v ...more
Unfortunately the whole Ethan loving Lisette past is not working for me. It might get better as the book goes on and Ethan connects more with the heroine of this book, Heather, but I don't think I can hang in there any longer. All his thoughts and references to Lisette are just getting to me too much!! Darn. Well, maybe I will pick up the next book when it comes out.
UPDATE September 5, 2015:
I am SOOOOO glad I quit. Found out it would have gotten worse for me. So sad. One day I will ski ...more
It’s a stand alone book but is better if you read this series from book #1.
Because while the couple different in each book, the main storyline is the same from book #1 and you need to read all books in the series to enjoy this series more.

I don't think it's a big secret that I'm a fan of Dianne Duvall. I haven't read everything she's read, but I have read every book in her Immortal Guardians series. I've been reading it ever since Book 1, Darkness Dawns, was released and I devour them like they're going out of style. Shadows Strike was another amazing installment in this series.
I really liked Heather. She was kind and caring and she was pretty funny too. I really enjoyed her irr ...more

Heather Lane has been dreaming about meeting Ethan for a year now. She’s been having the same dream over and over again about a man slaying creatures with fangs. Heather thinks she must be going crazy. Vampires don’t exist in her world. Heather may be able to read minds but as far as she’s concerned there are no supernatural creatures out there.
When Ethan saves Heat ...more
One of the things I loved about this installment - the H/h never lied to each other or hid their feelings. From the jump, they were open and honest about themselves and how they felt about each other.
I'm SO very happy that the closure of a major story line is not the the end of the series!

Hands down the best in this series. This one was action-packed and the author got EVERYONE involved. Normally, I am a romance first person. But this book focused more on the overall plot and the couple's HEA was secondary. It worked faboulously.
In the last book, we were introduced to a new villian Gershim, who was hell bent on punishing Seth. He continued to wreck havoc in this installment.
Meanwhile, Immortal Guardian Ethan was rescued by US enforcement agent named Heather Lane. It tu ...more

First read August 25, 2015. This is the final book of the Immortal Guardians and I liked it but I don’t understand why this was written when Ethan wasn’t in any of the other books more than a few minutes, and he got his own book? What about Seth or David or Cliff who were in every single book? And two years later there’s no Immortal Guardians books forth coming. You’re just left hanging with 5000 questions left unanswered? Such a disappointment. I’m hoping Ms. Duvall with ...more

Book 6 Shadows Strike of the Immortal Guardians is another big success. Ethan' story picks up were book 5 stops. The IG are stealing doing there nightly patrols hunting and killing Vampires and Seth, Zach David are still looking for The Other Gersome who has been creating massive vampire armies.

How he loved this baby girl.
"I don't know about you," Chaahk said, "but I'm feeling a little rebuffed."
"Why," Seth asked with a laugh, "because I didn't blow raspberries on your neck?'
Aiden and Imhotep laughed.
Shaking his head, Chaahk motioned to Aidra, "Why doesn't she smile as us like that?"
Seth shrugged. "I'm prettier.”
