Publisher's Summary

US law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds but not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can't guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes. Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, with the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she's awake, she isn't sure that she can trust Ethan or the shadow organization he represents. The US military doesn't trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that's coming, it will take everything they have just to survive....

What a brilliant series this is with it's never ending world building and growing suspense, tension-filled action scenes, twists and sigh-worthy romances which leave me in awe of Dianne Duvall's incredible vision to write such an imaginative world. A world where Rogue Vampires, Immortals, Elders, an Alien, Humans and 'Others' battle it out to either accomplish Armageddon or try to stop it and then she successfully manages to weave a powerful love story within the midst of conflict and danger. And, in Ethan and Heather's story, we get to witness the fights, the blood, the fangs, the danger, the passion, the sex, the slow layering of the plot and the intense commaradary between all the Guardians as they try to stop WWIII from happening at the manipulative hands of an enemy that can't be seen, sensed..... or perhaps even stopped.

New Alliances have been made, battles have been won and two lovely characters have found each other in humorous, tense, romantic and passion-filled chapters. But the War is far from over and I hope it lasts and lasts and lasts because there are so many loveable characters who are all in desperate need of a mate of their own to accompany them through their lonely immortality made up with constant fighting. One of the best things about this book is that the story brings all the Guardian characters into the fight so it's a joint effort from well loved characters we've already met in previous books or the new and fresh ones willing to choose sides and take up weapons to help in the bloody fight which creates such a multi-layered story.

There's no question that Dianne Duvall is a maestro at PNR and she must rank very highly in this genre for giving us such descriptive, imaginative and complex stories. However, for me, Kirsten Potter's narration of the very varied and vast amount of characters, the gripping chapters and the romantic scenes were all transformed and brought to life by her so, in my head, I could easily picture all the action up close and personal like my very own mental movie. And that's the magic, the glue and the missing essential ingredient that so many of us listens have to suffer through in lesser listens because the choice of narrator can transform fine print into fireworks if the right one is picked..... and, in this case, they've picked the perfect person.

Worth a credit? It has it all.... the wows, the ahhhs, the eeeks, the gasps, the sighs and the wtf moments are all gloriously housed within this listen which was a joy to lose myself in. So, YEAH every one of these books from this series have been creditworthy and this one's no exception.

Immortal Guardians are great, but not #6 :-(

I have adored this world since the first book, it is seriously one of my favorite series of all times, which is why I was really disappointed with this installment.

Maybe it was this is the story of Ethan, a barely 100 year old immortal. He is the one that had been sleeping with Lizette until Zach came along. I really liked that he found someone he could be with now that Lizette is taken but it was all too cookie cutter for my liking.

Is she a gifted one wasn't up for debate, and so many other things happened that just had me thinking this plot is just full of contrived drama for the sake of it, and I really dislike that in my books. One beloved character goes a bit wonky and we never find out of it's a permanent thing or not. Many new people are introduced and can't tell if they are trust worthy or not. Overall I was just sadly disappointed that it didn't feel like a real story, just a bunch of characters we know and love sitting around chatting...absolutely no point to most of it.

Kirsten Potter was still great of course, just sad to have waited this long for....blah!
