Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special. He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she's exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger, too. He'll have to accept Krysta's help to save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost to his heart might be higher . . .

Pleasure of the night. Good story not to raunch
Took a bit to adjust. She did a good job
Ending left un done? With no other books to follow.
I would totally recommend (and have) this book. I love the storyline, the heroine already kicking vampire butt, not knowing anything about the Immortal Guardian world. I liked the narrator, who brought the story to life, you simply get caught up in all the action, and bond with every character.
I like Christine Feehan Dark series and JD Tyer's Alpha Pack however, Darkness Rises and the other books in the series are so good the character so well developed that you can't wait to read what happens next. I just couldn't stop listening.
I've only listen to her performance in this series. Some narrators are made for a particular series. I love how she has brought each and every book in the series to life. I love every character
Some of the antics and charaters made me laugh, particularly the changing ringtones and the hero trying to use modern day slang.
I hope it's not a whole year before we get the next book.
Honestly this is one of if not the best series i've listened to/read. I've tried the Black Dagger Brotherhood and it's kinda weak but seems to be on everyones list as one of the best series to listen to. Maybe it would be better if Robert Petkoff read them, Jim Frandione is terrible. The Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost is my favorite series ever. The characters that Mrs. Duvall has created in this series are simply some of the best characters in the paranormal romance/action world and her writing along with Mrs. Potter's narration makes these characters come to life. You can sit there and the images are painted so vividly that you're almost seeing it as if it's a move but so much better. The dynamic between Krysta and Etienne is developed in a way that makes sense and doesn't rush to put them into bed together just to have a sex scene. Krysta starts off strong and she and Etienne become stroner together. As a guy I find some of these series annoying when the male lead is overbearing and Misoynistic and I like that Mrs. Duvall doesn't take that route in her books and have strong female leads. It's almost hard to put into words how well written this series is. I bought Darkness Dawns while it was on sale for $4.95 but outright purchased Night Reigns and Phantom Shadows because I simply could not stop listening. Some Authors of a series become very formulatic but Mrs. Duvall writes in such a way that every book can be a stand alone but complements the series in a way that does not become repetitive or just used to blatently set up the next book in line. That being said I can't wait for the next book in this series. I need to know more about Seth and his "cousins" it's killing me.
The story, the twist, the direction. You can see and feel the evolution of Ms. Duvall and its FABULOUS! Don't know if I can say this is my favorite because DANG! I love them ALL!
I was talking back to the book! Laughing Out Loud at one part, Awwing at other parts it was just WOW!
That's definitely a hard one! Each character pass and present..... well you just "root" for them ALL!
******SPOILER ALERT****** the end nuff said.
Yeah! Must we wait for the next BOOKS! Cause I can easily see 4 more to follow! If NOT MORE! Please Ms. Duvall don't make us wait a YEAR!
I really like the overall theme of this series, and would be a great series if it would concentrate more on developing the storyline, and advance it further with each episode.
It's more of a paranormal romance series, getting a couple together with each installment. That gets boring in my book, leaving too many questions unanswered each time about who the Others are, what Seth is up to with his Immortals, what's Ami's real purpose, and just where this series is headed. Like I said, it could be a great series if it would advance the theme of the Immortals more, and concentrate less on the romance. It has some great characters, which I love to catch up on, and quite a bit of humor, but leaves too many loose ends each time, and this episode was just a repeat of the mercenary theme. We could use some new foes, (mercenaries, been there done that.)
Everything!!!!! It has HUMOR, SEXY STEAMY ROMANCE, AND MYSTERY.....
LOVE ME SOME SETH ;)
Worth the credit or to just buy..... I have this whole series in my library and listen to them over and over..... Cant wait for the next one, hope dont have to wait as long...
Strong and spunky heroine with strong and yummy IG. What's not to love!?!?
Really great installment in the series.
I initially started the series because ms. Potter was the narrator. Love the way she creates the separate characters. Listening is so much better when you don't have to keep trying to figure out exactly who is saying what.
Cannot wait for next book in series. There are enough unanswered questions to make you really want to follow the mysteries. Love well rounded listens... Laugh, cry, get mad, lots of sexy steam (very adult!), loving, and the list goes on...
Between borrowing these books from my daughter and buying others and finally buying this audible to see what it was like to read and listen at the same time I read them all and loved every one of them.
The narrator was fantastic. I could listen to her read all day.
The characters were wonderful, especially Seth and David.
I just can't wait until the next book comes out!!!
Not sure I will listen to another book in this series. The dialogue is the same in every book, so much so that I can say it as they read it. The book I liked the best in this series is book 2 with Amy but it seems to be the same story every time now with different people. I hope the author shakes it up a bit for the next one.
