Book Synopsis:

For the Guardians of Eternity, battle is a way of life—whether the plight of their world is at stake, or the fate of their heart…

After being held captive by one vampire for four centuries, Kata had no intention of taking another one to the underworld with her. Yet even in the pits of Hell, there’s no ignoring the intoxicating desire awakened by Uriel’s touch…

My Review:

I can’t believe this series is almost done and that I’ve read all the books except the last one and 6.5!  While I am looking forward to seeing how Ms. Ivy wraps up this world, I am more excite to be reading new releases in her other sentinels series, which I’ve enjoyed even more than this one.  This review is for Darkness Eternal though, and I should probably get back to the review on deck…

This was another fine addition to the Guardian’s series, nothing that great, but a good read nevertheless.  This book took place about mid-series and it took me a few pages to figure out what had and hadn’t happen at this point in the story.  I liked the pairing of Kata and Uriel,  I find it quite humorous when an author pairs up a couple that are looking for complete opposites in mates.  Or rather they fall for someone from a species or race they wanted to avoid, quite often because of a negative history with another being.  It is a good example for people to read these types of romances or stories, maybe they will help others open up their eyes and stop being so bias against others.

Most of the story was centered around Kata and Uriel coming together and spending much of their time in the sack and battling the bad guy or girl in this case.  We did have the appearance of Yannah in this story, she is almost as much fun as Levent and added some much needed levity to the book.  We also have a Jinn that showed up, and I think he might have been in another book, but am not 100% sure on that one.  Anyway he was just briefly in the last chapter, but I did enjoy his scene and how it contributed to the story.

Bottom line, it was a fun romp, but if you haven’t read it I don’t think you are missing a whole lot as far as the series over all goes.  Still if you’ve read it all, like me, it is nice to get this piece of the puzzle, so I recommend it, especially for the price it is listed for on Amazon and B&N.  We also get a little teaser about the last book that is coming out in June.  Looking forward to reading that one as well.  These characters have been through a lot in the span of this series,  I think they have all earned their H.E.Aers.

My rating: 3 Star
