"Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control. In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible--when it means forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect..."--P. [4] of cover.… (mehr)

"Fantastic Story, Great Listen"

This book had my attention from beginning to end. I loved all the characters and the Narrator did a great job. To me this is a all nighter kind of a book, just cannot put it down.

Roland, anti-social Immortal Guardian, saved by a mere mortal Sarah. Or she was a mere mortal until he got a good look at her and fell in love. Sarah, not sure what Roland was but drawn to him none the less. Now how she handles his secrets and revelations is something extra ordinary. But as in every love story....love conquers all and strengthens those it entraps.

Bastien, the vampire(?) set on destroying Roland. He was backed by an army of vampires but how could one mortal woman throw a monkey wrench in his plans...several times. His motivation for vengeance, the murder of his sister, turns out to be the first of many life shattering lies. What will happen to Bastien when Roland and his fellow Immortals corner him?

And who is this mystery woman that the Guardians leaders, Seth and David, have rescued? What is so unexpected that they are thrown for a loop by something not even the two of them dared to think of?

Love everything about this story. The characters have personality and character ticks. The way they use modern language and technology while still being anywhere from 937 to 200 yrs. old.(Although Seth and David are millennium older but it's never said just how old they are.) The author has found a perfect way to meld the old world charisma with today's slang. Explaining how sometimes it was difficult to adjust or even imagine the way the world changes. The sorrow of seeing mortal friends pass away. To know that they had lost family. And in Roland's case, was betrayed by the same family he mourned.

Yup, definitely in love with all these characters and I want to see where their adventures are going to take them, who we will meet along the way. Plus, who and what is Ami?

2018 Review
Just re-reading the series as book 8 Awaken The Darkness will be published on 10th July 2018 and I wanted to reacquaint myself with the characters and remind myself of the action so far...

2017 Review
I have posted my full review on my WordPress blog, Flora's Musings...

So, what did I like about it?
I am a firm fan of Ms Duvall’s writing style; she writes intelligent, engaging stories with a host of well written characters within a wonderfully creative mix of fantasy and reality that I find very easy to read. The pace is usually fast and full of action but without being disorienting and I like that she combines a couple of plot lines to run alongside the main romantic adventure. [b:Darkness Dawns|8804062|Darkness Dawns (Immortal Guardians, #1)|Dianne Duvall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327883828s/8804062.jpg|13678210] does not disappoint.

I enjoy books where the characters are not black or white, good or evil but a complex mix of positive and negative traits and emotions that they either have to embrace or overcome; the fact that these supernatural characters have been written with very real human virtues and foibles even though most of them are mythical, paranormal beings, adds that level of believability to this fantasy tale.

I enjoy a story more if the lead female character is intelligent, resilient and has a good sense of humour and I wasn’t disappointed here. Sarah was all of these and more. In fact, I liked the way that Sarah, Roland and all of the characters in this story were written, none of them were flat 2-dimensional creations, they all felt very real for me. Oh, and like most Brits I do love a bit of banter – this story has plenty of it! I found myself COL (Chuckling Out Loud) throughout, usually at Roland’s expense but hey he’s got broad shoulders, I’m sure he can take it.

I loved the fact that the mystery aspect of this story kept me guessing, the action kept me on the edge of my seat, the blossoming romance made me shed a tear as well as chuckle and the passion set my tummy a-tingling.


2015 Review
Couldn't stop reading this amazing book!
It had everything that I look for in a 5star book; easy intelligent writing style, main characters that I like & can believe with depth of character, depth of character in the supporting cast, believable background story to the romance and the world it's set in, good pace of story development, nice balanced mix of relationship growth with action scenes and sex scenes that get my heart rate pumping!

This book is Book 1 in the Immortal Guardians series but I think that it works as a standalone, however, I've been so enamoured with this story that I look forward to getting caught up with Book 2 "Phantom Shadows" in the near (near) future ;-) ( )

"Filled with sexy men and plenty of action, Darkness Dawns kept me turning the pages well past my bedtime. This debut novel from Dianne Duvall was a thrilling read. She's definitely one author to watch. Immortal Guardians is a fantastic new series filled with danger, heart-melting heroes and plenty of warm moments (awww). I can also say there were plenty of hot moments, too!"
