I loved everything about this book! It was perfection. I’ve been anxiously awaiting Seth’s story with a lot of excitement and a bit of trepidation. Seth is...well...Seth. His story would be tricky to write but Dianne Duvall did an amazing job navigating land minds and giving him the love story he deserved. Well done Ms. Duvall. I’ve had a great time reading (listening) to your Immortal Guardians series.
I loved the ending until ...... Oh boy I feel like I'm going crazy thinking about what happens next!!!
Through out the Immortal Guardian series I’ve guessed and have gotten hints from Dianne Duvall about Seth and his origins. She’s kept us always pondering the mysteries of Seth while keeping us hanging on to every word that we could gather from snippets lead ...more
And sorry Zach, I like Seth’s story slightly more than yours! 😘
If you read PNR romance, you really have to read this series, and start from book #1, because the overall story is connecting and jumps in the middle of the series will ruin your enjoyable.
So, what are you waiting for?
Read this series!

I've binge-listened to this series on audiobook for the past three weeks, and I've loved every minute of it! Kirsten Potter's fabulous narration gives unique voices and accents to all the characters that adds a depth to the stories that I'm not sure I would've felt as much had I just read them.
I've been looking forward to Seth's book from the beginning. The immensely powerful and deeply beloved leader of the Immortal Guardians is such a formidable figure and a major part of every book i ...more

Dianne Duvall never disappoints. We wanted an earth-shaking novel for our most beloved character and she has certainly delivered on all the action, suspense and romance we have come to expect.
Check out our Character Interview with Seth.

This audiobook was everything. Dianne Duvall wrote an ah-mazing story and Kirsten Potter delivered an ah-mazing narration. Now it should be said that this one lasted 17 hours and 16 minutes, so it was much longer than the other book, but everything was necessary.
This book had action, suspense, mystery, romance, family, humor and most of all, a happy ending for our heroes. Seth's story was so intense. It is one of those books you can't put down. If you have been following the story, then you know the showdown ...more

The Immortal Guardians have been fighting for the safety of humanity for thousands of years. Seth is their leader, the stern disciplinarian, the mother hen, the worrier – he is the heart and soul of the Immortal Guardians. But he’s not like the other Immortal Guardians. He’s one of the Others and one of his former brethren is targeting him through his beloved Guardians. Gershom has lost his damn mind if he thinks Seth is just going ...more
He actually smiled then. “Would you be offended if I expressed disappointment?”
Death of Darkness is the mind-blowing, phenomenal and literally earth-shaking ninth entry in Dianne Duvall’s amazing Immortal Guardians saga. Seth receives his well-earned HEA with a riveting story that will heartily take yo ...more
I didn’t get the love between Seth and Leah. Couldn’t understand watching STRANGER THINGS on DVD. The best parts of the story had nothing to do with the romance between Seth and Leah. I am glad we found out about Seth’s real history. Will say no more.
First, with all the humans being changed into vampires, wouldn’t the human community be questioning all the missing people???
Second, the reader is given all this information about a watch she could use to summon Seth and it’s “used” once and then nothing??? Why did she use it when the guy came to David’s house? Why didn’t she mention whet ...more

It is so good. I really enjoyed Seth's story. Getting to know his back story was great.
I liked Leah she was good for him and they made a good match. I like that all the characters from the previous books showed up. These are definitely some badass Immortal Guardians.
If you haven't read this series you are really missing out and I recommend you start with book 1.
As for the narration, it was great. I am so glad Kri ...more

Leah lowered her until her little sneaker-clad feet touched the floor.
Adira toddled away, patting the garments that brushed her head and shoulders.
Straightening, Leah watched her for a moment, then turned back to Seth. “I guess I’ll get back to work.”
Was that disappointment he felt upon hearing her words? He really was enjoying her company.
Adira turned around and toddled back. Grasping Leah’s fingers, she reached out, took Seth’s hand, and placed Leah’s in it.
Seth instinctively curled his fingers around Leah’s.
Satisfied, Adira turned and toddled off once more.
“Oh,” Leah said with a surprised chuckle. “Well. Maybe not.”
Seth was surprised, too. What was Adira thinking?
He glanced at Leah. Should he apologize? “Sorry about that.”
“No worries,” she said with another charming smile. Raising their clasped hands, she turned them so his was on top and slid her free hand over it. “Oooh. Look how big your hand is.”
How many times had he heard Tracy or one of the other mortal women he frequently encountered think Oooh. Look how big his hands are. You know what they say: big hands, big feet, big package in much the same tone as Leah’s.
Seth couldn’t help it. He barked out a laugh.
Leah’s eyes widened. “Wait. I didn’t mean that the way it sounded.”
“It sounded as if you like that my hands are so big.”
She flushed. “I do, but I didn’t mean it like you think.”
“How do I think you meant it?” he asked with exaggerated innocence.
Face red, she laughed. “Stop making me blush. I just meant I like that you’re so big. Not just your hands. But all over.” Again her eyes widened. “I mean, not all over, but—”
Laughing, he took pity on her. “It’s all right. I understood what you meant the first time.”
Smiling, she squinted up at him. “You like to tease, don’t you?”
“Guilty as charged.” Many immortals did. It helped lighten what could otherwise be a dark existence.
She caressed his hand again, sending little tingles through it. “My hand actually looks small in yours. That’s so cool.”
It did. And the sensations her soft touch inspired unnerved him a bit. His pulse even picked up.
Seth eyed her curiously. “You really dislike your size so much?” He thought it a shame. She was a beautiful woman.
Shrugging, she released his hand and let hers fall to her sides. “When someone gives you a complex in high school, it tends to stick with you.”
Adira reappeared as if by magic. Taking Leah’s hand, she again placed it in Seth’s, then moved away.
The two looked at each other and smiled.
Leah nodded after Adira. “Maybe she’s hoping I’ll distract you so she can take her time looking over the toys she plans to coax you into buying before you leave.”
Seth winked. “Or maybe she just heard you say you like my big hands.”
“Let me hold you a little longer,” he whispered.
Nodding, she relaxed against him.
Several minutes passed while they just held each other.
“You make everything better, Leah,” he murmured.
Warmth burrowed through her chest, straight to her heart. “You do, too.”
