    Story
    "Dark Hunters + Lestat meets Michael Moore"

    A noise moved thru my head as I listened to this book over the weekend. It went something like "no! don't say it....she's going to say it....["PRETERNATURAL"]....again!" This word must feature on every page in the hardcopy. Since I finished it yesterday and sat down to buy another book, I remembered this book and my new subtitle for it "preternatural hunters".
    I enjoyed the dialogue in the first book and of course, marcus gives off all the right noises of being a wounded protagonist that will be fun to follow up with in this book. What I remember most about the book was the camaraderie of the characters.
    Duvall was obviously a fan of Sherilyn Kenyons Dark Hunter series (a fave of mine too), because imitation is the best form of flattery. Here we have an uber mysterious background figure who possesses faintly omniscent powers (like Acheron) and deals secretly with a potentially more powerful being. You have various characters who are older than fossils (all current w/ modern slang, however). Megalomaniac would be king-of-the-hill types that draw everyone together, even the previous book's bad guy to slay the latest. And you have the 'seconds' who are called "squires" in Kenyon's books.
    There are many things I liked about listening to the book, but I can't get past the Anne Rice's holdover of the use of "preternatural" everything. There are so many other words that can be used in its stead.

    A couple other things bother me that leave my rating at 3 stars. First, never have I been so hit over the head with environmentalism before in a fiction book. Fine, the immortals (good vamps) like organics, and recycle. They don't eat much meat. Great, I get it. And like Christine Feehan's various worlds, nobody drinks anything substantial than TEA or blood (and another soapbox on poisoning the body). But then we get the soliloquy from one character about how the earth is consuming its resources, blablabla (michael moore meets al gore) and I went and did a load of wash. I'm a bleedin' heart lib (my dad's pronouncement), but I want to escape in these books, NOT be preached at. Plus, this is just so incongruous.

    A final disquiet that isn't really restricted to Duvall's Immortal Guardians but was definitely annoying in this one:
    Why the absolutism about virginity? What are all these femmes of DECIDEDLY adult years (cause I don't wantt to give anything away), still virgins, but NONE of the males are? How is it that 21st Century romantic fiction is still co-opting this paternalistic victorian notion? I'm so puzzled. We do get the heroine explaining in one scene about the overt sexuality present in modern day society, and her more conservative views. This could have been done much less preachy.

    I would recommend the book to others, with some caution. Its ok. The writing is respectable, and a lot of the dialogue very intersting. The narrator did a very fine job. Its definitely part of the paranormal genre. However, even for those in the choir, this was a little too preachy and something of a soapbox for the author's views.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Story
    "Origin Of A Character Unique..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As I said in my review of the first book there is still that predictability of the story but??? In this book I'm not sure if the creation of a character whose origins which are not usually associated with this type of story was last ditched attempt or a plan aimed at diversifying a typical vampire story by the author. So my impression of this series remains the same, it is good with this book a tad more interesting than the first.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Kirsten Potter is a very good narrator.

    "Completely enjoyable and entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to Night Reigns the most enjoyable?

    The flow of the store line and the presentation by the narroator blend together very well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the mix of a thrilling suspense filled romance, with a touch of heartwarming humor.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her ability to to bring the different accents and tone and pitch of voice make it easy to understand which charecter is speaking.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Could you be a gifted one?

    This book was okay. Was a bit weird how detailed the acts of recycling was. Overall there was action and romance enough to keep me entertained.

    Would you listen to Night Reigns again? Why?

    Not big on all the environmental preaching and found the alien bit hokey and uncreative, but still a good read. Will continue with the series.
