Publisher's Summary

Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control...

In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible---when it means forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect.

    "Really enjoyed! Looking forward to more!"

    Really liked the introduction of the characters and I am looking forward to getting to know more of them individually. I loved the humor and the love story. It is also great to see very strong female characters that can stand up and defend themselves and the one’s they love.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the way Duvall developed the characters.


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

    She PERFORMED the book. Kudos to this narrator.


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

    Vampires are immoral; Guardians are immortal!


    Any additional comments?

    One negative thing to say about this book - actually most of the books by female authors I've read. There is WAY to much emphasis on sex. To think that we guys get hammered for being obsessed. Sometimes a hint is better than an explanation of every detail. It is uncomfortable listening to this book while at work which is where I usually listen. I find myself looking around to see if anybody is listening. In this world today, it's too easy to offend someone and the details are a bit TOO detailed for my taste.

    Now to the writer's credit, she did an excellent job starting the book off with ACTION. While it navigated through the usual, expected valleys, it still maintained my fascination with the characters and the plot. The introduction to two

    "A pretty good story but not the best in this genre"
    If you could sum up Darkness Dawns in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting and Sexy


    Would you recommend Darkness Dawns to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. The story is good, but there are better books out there in this genre.


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

    Have shovel will travel


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good but at times seemed a bit formulaic. Also the meeting and subsequent relationship of the main characters seemed unlikely. More backstory on the female main character would have been nice. Also the last third of the book was slow.

    This was a great story... the author has done a great job of keeping you wanting more, when I realize I was on the last chapter, I wanted to start crying, you just don't want it to end... The narrator has also done a great job with the charaters.... I just can't say enough... I hope there are allot more to come, this series promises to be an exciting one...

    "Love it!! Awesome Story"

    I wasn't going to get this book, except the 1st of a series sell price was perfect ($4.95). I expected just the same old vampire book, but very soon after I started listening, saw it was actually different than all the others. No Gore! The performance was great too. Get it, You'll be hooked!
