In the second installment of Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series, when Marcus Grayden's grief over the loss of the woman he loved causes him to become reckless, he is assigned a new Second, who proves to be immensely distracting. Contains mature themes.
Also listen to the first book, Darkness Dawns: Immortal Guardians Series #1.

I have enjoyed all three of these books in the series! I enjoyed the hunks fight with himself to let someone back into his life and the change that happens to him, from a snippy man to loving. Worth the credit.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
Simply Fangtastic Irrestible
My favorite scene in the book is when Marcus finally discovers Ami secret. It was a such an intense and passionate moment.
I was hooked with this series when I read Darkness Dawns. It just keeps getting better with ever book. It adds just the right amount of action, mystery and passion, but gives you something to laugh about also. The interaction between Seth and his guardians is priceless.
Already did, have and will probably listen again!
Darkness Dawns, Blood Born - genre mostly and also a good second book to Darkness Dawns - I really enjoy the character development and not forgetting Roland and Sarah in this series.
When she reads you can just "see" the expression the tone and modulation is spot on. The take on the accents is something I wouldn't experience.
Almost did.... :)
Getting ready to listen to it again - as I wait impatiently for #3 to be available here!
I've read a lot of paranormal crap. Some books are just copycats of other successful storylines. This series is completely unique and well thought out. I had to often stop myself from listening for fear of listening to the whole thing too fast.
Again, this one stands out on it's own. The humour and tension are well timed. The characters are people I'd like to meet. I'm a fan of JR Ward's work, so anyone into her will be happy with this.
Anything with Seth in it. I'm totally into that guy.
I'm a graphic designer so I could make the movie poster instead. I'd leave the words to someone else.
I have put in my calendar when the next one comes out. Thats the sign of a good series I say.
The first series was equally performed as the second
Had always had a "OMG" reaction.
I can not wait until the next release of these series, best I have ever heard!
It is one of the top 5
The unexpected twist and the uniqueness of the charaters. I also enjoyed the infusion of humor that the narrator was able to articulate through the characters.
Her ability to provide unique voices for each character that brought them to life.
I really enjoyed this book and actually liked it a little more than the first one. I can't wait for the next installment.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I absolutely loved the first book in this series and this one was great too. I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a great continuation of the series. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
When I need to get away from reality I choose to listen or read ..helps me step out of real life for a few hours to a life of imagination!!!
I don't have one favorite, i like all the characters in this series!
I started this book on a Friday and was done with by Saturday afternoon..i could NOT put it down.
Very good story, very good series, great characters, it will have you laughing, crying, smiling and excited and most important...put you in a world that is not your own...and enjoy every minute of it. If you like the whole vampire vs. immortals thing..which i do...romance and very sexy...a must READ (listen) to series!!!!
Even though it sometimes seems as if I am missing information, what I am seeking shows up eventually. It was the same with the first book as well. I felt like I had the story, but not the explanation until later in the book. I love that about them. It's like your waiting for a surprise gift, wondering when it will arrive. A nice stay at home winter read.
Finding out about Amy was a surprise.
Seth because I can't wait to hear about him.
Kirstin Potter does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life. Her voice is easy to listen to. I can easily differentiate between the characters without thinking about it and her voice is very clear on my ipod.
Say something about yourself!

First thought when finished: Oh MY! Even better than the first one but really OCTOBER for the next one :(
What I Loved: Just about everything! I would really like to wax poetically and make you realize just how fun this series is but I wouldn't do it justice. The characters are mufti-faceted, rich, deep, and fun. I was never once bored while I listened to the story on audio (11 hours or so) and the story built on the last book. I admit I was a little skeptical about Ami and Marcus in the beginning (it's a Seth thing) but I quickly grew to love them together. She was just right for the grouch and she melted his little hard heart! It was fantastic. Their give and take was very well done.
What I Liked: I loved the building up to Bastien's story because I know it is coming next. I think his will be doozy!
Things that made me go huh?: Not a darn thing!
Audio Specific Thoughts: Kristen Potter did a pretty good job with the narration of the story and I really hope they stick with her for the audio. This was enjoyable to listen too!
Final Thoughts: I want Lissette, Seth, David, and Marcus to have books. Oh and can there be a spin-off of the humans please :) Also can we explore Ami's family too! I know that is a lot LOL Dianne Duvall might just have a fan girl for life LOL
