Publisher's Summary

Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire....

Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different - and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question - he can't put her in danger. But she isn't asking him....

    "Immortal Guardians Rock"

    I was so glad to have the third installment, loved each and every book so far but you need to listen to them in order to keep up with the story line and each of their adventures.

    Sabstien is handsome, misunderstood Immortal who's still brooding on delusions from decades past which has led him to be the most disliked Immortal and is alienated by his fellow Guardians, and that of course just makes us like and root for him - the hurting underdog - all the more. This book contains an action packed storyline that's full of suspense, intrigue, passion and humour.

    If you liked Lords of The Underworld and/or The Black Dagger Brotherhood you will definately like these.

    "Can't wait for book #4!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Phantom Shadows to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because of Kristen Potter. She is my new favorite narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Flow from one book to another is flawless. Love the character development throughout the series.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Appreciated the voice inflection and emotion conveyed. Very easy to determine character speaking and follow conversations. Narrator becomes a part of the story. Loved the fact that she was able to convey in voice the exact character and personality of each person.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm a sucker for romance, good triumphing over evil and a happy ending. This series has it all.


    Any additional comments?

    Diane Duvall and Kristen Potter are a perfect partnership!

    "Misunderstood Hero & Compassionate Heroine"

    I would absolutely recommend this book for those who like a fast paced, action packed, love story with a twist in the paranormal. This book hit all the things I look for in a great novel. Mystery, love, passion, humor, great characters, fast pace, and a story that keeps you up at night wanting to know more.

    I love hearing all of the accents of the different characters from around the world. She really does a great job! Even the men's voices are believable and the women's voices are distinct yet realistic.

    There were a large number of laughing outbursts and a couple of slightly tear jerking moments. Overall, this book was a pleasure to listen to!

    I strongly recommend starting with the first book in the series if you haven't started reading them yet. The first book could stand alone but after that the story builds strongly on the story line of the previous book.

    ""CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO AMY""



    Totally enjoyed "Phantom Shadows” more than the other two books because it's focus was on Bastien the underdog bad boy of the Immortal Guardians. And I always root for the underdogs.

    Diana Duvall developed the relationship between Bastien & Melanie perfectly. And she didn't have to do it through sexual exploits, like so many writer do today. Which by the way is really disappointing sometimes. Don't get me wrong there was a strong physical attraction between the two, but it was not overdone.

    Bastien is a self-proclaim bad boy with a bad attitude, who believes he is not worst loving, until he runs into the lovely sassy Melanie that comes at him with a two sided axe chopping his belief down like a lumber jack chopping down a tree.

    Bravo Mrs. Duvall!!!

    To add the cherry on top it was delivered by one of the best narrator on Audible - Kristen Potter.

    "Fantastic series by Dianne Duvall"
    What did you love best about Phantom Shadows?

    The introduction of new characters with underlying references on the books too come.


    What other book might you compare Phantom Shadows to and why?

    If you like Black Dagger Brothers by JR Ward or Midnight Breed series by Laura Adrian you'll like the "world" created by Dianne Duvall.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Love it!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Fearless heroines. Love a character who fights for what she wants and is not a victim needing rescue by the hero. I really like that Melanie looked beyond others characters hate for Sebastian and explored their growing relationship with gentle prods to determine his true feelings.

    "I just love these series"

    Immortal Guardians remind me very strongly of my favorite series Dark-Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon, but the stories have a lighter feel to me. Regardless of similarities, I enjoy them just as much. I plan to preorder future books as they become available.

    Narration by Kristen Potter is fantastic as usual.

    Night Reigns was my favorite in this series and this one gives a clue to the next book with Amy. Can't wait. This was just O.K. to me, but the info on what the next book will be made it worth it.

    "Great series, totally worth it!"

    I have to say that as of late I have been dissapointed with what is out there to read...I like a good romance, but am SOOO sick of rich boy meets virginal girl...thank GOD this book isn't like that! I have to say this whole series surprised me in a very good way. You get the heat, the romance, and a very interesting vampire world that has been created for you with great charachters...kind of reminds me of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Overall, I think this is a great series and book.
