Publisher's Summary

Seth has led the Immortal Guardians for thousands of years. With them fighting by his side, he has protected humans from psychotic vampires, defeated corrupt mercenary armies, defended military bases under attack, and more. But the latest enemy to rise against the Immortal Guardians has proven to be a formidable one, wielding almost as much power as Seth. His goal is simple. He wants to watch the world burn. And he will use every means at his disposal to accomplish it. Seth and his Immortal Guardians have succeeded thus far in staving off Armageddon despite heartbreaking losses. But they have never before faced such danger.  

Leah Somerson has suffered losses of her own. It has taken her a long time to rebuild her life and find some semblance of peace. Then one night a tall, dark, powerful immortal with what appears to be the weight of the world on his shoulders stumbles into her shop, and everything changes. Peace and contentment are no longer enough. Now she wants more. She wants to find happiness. She wants to erase the darkness in Seth's eyes and replace it with love and laughter. She knows he's different in ways that make most fear him. Even some of his immortal brethren keep a careful distance. But Leah will not. Nor will she shy away when danger strikes.  

Contains mature themes.

How Seth got his Groove Back

I didn’t want to say this but unlike other fans, Seth’s book scared me. What was it going to be like for this father figure who was thousands of years old to find love? What was this man who I even see as the adults of all adults going to be like hearing about him having sex? Well y’all, it only took me about six minutes to figure out that I was an idiot. Seth and Leah are the ideal couple. I adore her. I adore them dancing together and watching television together. Watching Seth fall in love was addictive. I wanted more and more of it and I was jumping up and down rooting for them by the end I was in tears of happiness. Now, there were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. I know that, at one point something happens, and I made a very unladylike noise followed by more unladylike words. There were also times I was jumping up and down screaming with excitement and joy, both on the inside and outside. The only thing I can say is GIVE ME MORE DIANNE DUVALL! There are questions answered but every one answered has another one to pop up in its place. Every new question makes me want more. Can I bribe her to write faster? Kirsten Potter is amazing. She allows you to get lost in the story and almost forget she’s the only one performing.

Best of the Immortal Guardians so far!

Dianne does an excellent job at keeping the stories fresh and interesting within this wonderful world she has created. Seth's story is my favorite so far - they really keep getting better and better! I can't wait for the next Immortal Guardian book (and the one after that, and the one after that...)!

A good laugh, a good cry, and sexy fun times!

A slow burn but it honestly could not have been written any other way for Seth. He was never going to have insta love and the way their relationship builds is perfection. This book is packed with revelations and holy @%^$ moments. Dianne is a spectacular story teller. You can really tell when a writer has passion for their craft and love for their characters. If you've read any other IG books this one is a must read. It also feels like just the right spot for a bit of a storyline reset. I love that these characters will be with us for a long time to come. I for one can't wait to see the future holds!

Amazing and full of surprises

Long awaited Seth's story. All I have to say is amazing. It certainly did not disappoint. Dianne Duvall knows how to keep you in suspense and in sensual bliss mode. Kirsten Potter is an exceptional narrator, but I have to say she's outdone herself in the narration of this audiobook.

Death of Darkness

As always, Dianne Duvall writes a compelling and entertaining story. Death of Darkness is the long-awaited story about Seth, the leader of the Immortal Guardians. This book answers many questions about the origins of The Others, and the Immortal Guardians. It also allows for many future story lines to be told. Very exciting!

Now where's book 10?

Really liked the story and Kristen Potter is great with voices! The only thing why it's not a 5 star is that for a 40 something already married and widowed, Lea was Really immature, She acted and sounded like a 13 year old. She was funny had good comeback quips but it felt like she was on speeds most of the time. Really enjoyed the 2 little ones.

An Amazing Story Full of Action, Fun and Romance.

I really LOVED this story. I have waited for Seth to find his love since meeting him in Book 1 Darkness Dawns and this story didn't disappoint. I really love Ms Duvall’s writing style and find her books very easy to read (but impossible to put down! Lol!); she writes intelligent, engaging stories with a collection of well written characters, set against an imaginative world that cleverly mixes fantasy and reality, making it so easy to submerse oneself completely in her books. The pace of her stories is usually fast, full of action and contains a couple of plot lines which run alongside the main romantic story arc, but fear not lovely readers, she manages to pack this all in without making you feel overwhelmed, bewildered or lost. Existing fans of this series have been eagerly awaiting this book since the series began in 2011; Death of Darkness was worth the wait! I loved the narration, I didn't want to turn it off. Kirsten Potter's performance was one of the best I've heard and I loved the voices she gave the characters' dialogue; Ms Potter's performance made for a very believable experience. I enjoy books more where the characters are not purely good or evil but a multifaceted mix of positive and negative traits and thankfully all of the characters within the Immortal Guardians world have been created like this. The fact that the characters within these pages have been written with personalities that we can see in the real world around us - even though the majority of them are mythical, paranormal beings - adds that level of believability to this fantasy tale for me. If you’ve read my reviews before, then you’ll know that I connect to a story more when the main female character is intelligent, resilient, self-reliant and has plenty of gumption; I wasn’t disappointed here. Leah was perfect. She has oodles of gumption with a fantastic sense of humour that had me COL (Chuckling Out Loud!) numerous times. Of course, as the leader of the Immortal Guardians we had already met him in the previous books but I loved spending a day in Seth’s big shoes and finding out more about the man behind the name legend. The mystery and thriller aspects of this tale kept me guessing, the action kept me on the edge of my seat, the romance between Seth and Leah warmed my heart, the banter kept me giggling and the passion set my tummy a-tingling. *oh my*

Do not buy the audiobook!!

Loved the book so much that I bought the audio too. HOWEVER , the audio does not work on my kindle fire. I have no idea why as all my other audio books work fine. I'm so mad.
