Publisher's Summary

For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. She dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for - and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.

Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of supervamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death, and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?

LEATHER PANTS AND WINGS! HOW COULD YOU GO WRONG!!!

This book of the series is definitely a must read. I was starting to get a little frustrated with the Immortal Guardians series. It was starting to follow a very predictable formula. But this book, this book has once again restored my love of this series. FYI, some questions still haven't been answered(groan) but there will be answers to other questions. This book doesn't have a cliffhanger, per se. It does have a HEA.

From the previous books, you already know that Lisette is starting to harbor secret feelings for the renegade immortal Zach. The one and only person on Seth’s shit list. But that doesn’t stop Lisette from helping Zach when she founds him badly beaten, bruised and bloody in her back yard. She lovely helps nurse him back to health with the aid of Bastian (the black sheep himself), knowing this will enraged Seth. She cannot understand the connection she feels towards the ancient immortal but she does realize she is willing to risk everything just to be with him.

Zach is something more. He never thought he was capable of being anything other than what he was until Lisette stepped into his life. With her, he truly understands what it is to live again. So when he almost loses her in a battle, he decides to put away old strife between him and Seth and help the Immortals Guardians, all because of his love for this dark warrior. And Zach for all his millennium of living and untold secrets, finding love is the greatest and scariest thing in his life.

The book contains, as with the series, the right combination of action, romance, suspense and passion. The fight scenes that the Immortal encounter are detailed. Dianne, as always, describes anything in such detail that you not only picture the fight, but you feel as if you are in the midst of battle. Although I think this book had a bit more of a serious tone than the previous four, it still added unexpected hilarious moments, which you may find yourself smiling or laughing along with the characters in the book. The romance scenes are rocking hot. The combine just the right amount of sexual tension, passion and drool worthy smex. YUM!!! Although unlike the other books, this book kept the suspense throbbing and alive for me the entire book. Even now, I'm thinking through different scenes from the book trying to answer unanswered questions. I think that is what makes it worthwhile, when I want to reread a book because I'm left questioning and speculating about different chapters of a book.

Every time I listen to a book that Kristen Potter narrators, I found a new facet of her voice that I enjoy. She gives each characters the right amount of distinguishable accent for their nationality. I particular loved her voice for Aiden (secretly hoping his book is next).

My two cents is to buy this book. If you have read the series in the past and thought it was getting predictable, this book will hopefully bring you back into the world of the Immortal Guardians.

A Fantastic addition to this series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would. You can listen to this book as a standalone but, I really feel like you need to start at the beginning to capture the depth of the characters. These immortal guardians are freaking amazing! There is action, intimacy and bond of family that is interwoven in every story. I would definitely recommend it

What other book might you compare Night Unbound to and why?

The only other books I would compare it to would be the other Immortal Guardian books.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Lizette was injured and Zac poured everything into her to the point of passing out over and over. The scene was moving and powerful to me.

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

"Wings of Love"

Any additional comments?

Another great story, worth buying and listening to over and over. Can't wait to get started on the next one.

Yes!!

Can't believe I took so long to get to this book. I love this series, and Lissette has been one of my favorite characters so far. Diann Duvall writes the best kick-ass female characters with strong male characters. Such an awesome spin on a vampire series. It's not just Vampires, but mysterious Immortal Guardians. This series has it all, mystery, suspense, sexy romance, humor, and a real in-depth story that makes the completely unreal feel realistic. Book 5, and I still can't get enough! On to the next one, which is actually set far in the past!

And, Kirsten Potter is PERFECT for this series. Love her narration. There's a big cast of characters here, and she captures each of them from book to book.

so anyways

I'm vested in the series but one thing really irritates me about all the books there is more sex than story. All the books seem to just be filler for whatever the climax of the series is. If you are bored they are decent listening and the stories alright. If you're like me and listen at work the sex scenes are generally skipped over and there are a lot of sex scenes. Also you can pull out earbuds talk with coworkers then go back to the story without missing a thing, that is to say 15 minutes won't put you behind in the story. Also the mystery in the books leaves something lacking. With common sense you can come to the same conclusion it takes the characters a book to get to.

Its a great read good way to escape out of your head.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Unbound?

They are not boring immortal that win each fight. injures showed they had some soft spots and were not as totally infallible as we would expect

LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT!!!

I loved every minute of this book. I've been anticipating a story about Zach since book 2! His love interest Lisette was great, but I found myself so intrigued by Zach and Seth specifically, so I knew this book would be one of the more interesting one's that answered many of the questions that have been looming since the earlier books. This story had all the elements I enjoy--suspense, drama, humor, and hotty-licious romance. As always, the narration was dynamic and brought all the characters to life. I emphatically recommend all Dianne Duvall's books, but this one in particular was noteworthy in the series and is definitely credit worthy.

All my life I've been waiting for someone like you

When I was first introduced to Zach I knew that I was going to be obsessed with him and I was not wrong. Zach is one of those characters that is ambivalent to everything that's going around him. He understands what is happening but he does not know how to connect to it until he meets Lisette. Lisette is that one character who puts up a good front because she does not want everyone around her knowing how she truly feels inside. She has so much guilt when it comes to her siblings that she is more concerned about them than she is herself. When Zach and Lisette meet there is an instant connection. Throughout this entire book Zach and Lisette are basically an on the run couple. There are all these outside factors that does not want them together but the pull is too strong to one another. In this book the series ends up picking up dramatically. In the previous book, Darkness Rises, it was mentioned there is a traitor amongst them. In this book we kind of figure out who the traitor is but there are still a couple questions that need to be answered. Seth is having a real tough time in this book and I can understand why. He is trying to take care of everybody which is exhausting while trying to ferret out the traitor that he cannot seem to locate. When it comes to romance books there are a couple of ways of doing it. 1) A quick and fast romance. 2) A lust to love romance. 3) Fighting your feelings the entire book and then the last 10 pages and realizing that they're in love romance. 4) My ultimate favorite romance, the slow burn romance 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥. This book was a very nice slow-burn. Lisette and Zach have known that there is a connection between the two but has not acted on it. Leading up to the very first sexual encounter, you know as a reader, it is going to happen. I was anticipating the entire time for their first physical interaction to take place and when it did I was not disappointed. Like the other couples Lisette and Zach have a crazy amount of sex but I felt as though they were in the right sections within the book. I might be biased because I'm obsessed with Zach and Lisette, is in my opinion, one of the top two best heroines within this series. Ami is number one and Lisette is definitely a close second. There were so many things happening within this book that I was a little stunned. There was action and drama throughout this entire book. Once you thought things were settling down oh no they weren't. It was getting real really quickly and I am all for that. I really hope that the Nextbook picks up right where this book leaves off. In the next book I'm expecting to figure out a lot of things. We do know who is organizing the vampires but there is just a couple things that an an outsider would not know. But it seems as though they know what is going on within The Network. On a side note: I am completely obsessed and invested in Aiden. When he gave that speech to Seth I was crying and I just wanted to give him the biggest hug. When Aiden gets his book it better be everything that I need in life. Sometimes when readers love a character and it's time for their book it sometimes doesn't live up to what the reader has in their head. The reader assumes that their favorite character is going to fall in love and have this epic book and it's to be amazing but it becomes a disappointment and you just want the image in your head of the character that you have to stay but the book has destroyed it for you. I hope that doesn't happen to Aiden and I don't think that it will. However since Aiden made me feel for him I just hope that he gets the heroine that is just as amazing and a bit crazy as he is.

Can You Say Angels with Black Wings & Vampires Wow

This is a continuation of the Immortal Guardians Series. We met Lissette when she was helping others defeat the enemies of the Guardians and humans. she fights along side her brothers who were turned by accident trying to protect her. She falls for Zack who is thought to be an enemy but is actually helping them. He protects her and gets angry with the Guardians because they left her to fight alone and was injured. The many ways that this story could end will keep you listening until the end. Well worth the credit. Although this can be a stand alone it is best heard through the series. Well written and the narrator definitely adds to the story.

Spectacular..

Any additional comments?

I would be hard-pressed to say which of these books are my favorite. I love all the characters involved: Bastian, Marcus, Roland, Seth, David, Melanie, Jenna, Ami, Chris, etc. And I'm so happy that Cliff hasn't gone insane yet and I hope he never does.
I really love, love, loved Zach and Lizette, an awesome twosome for sure.
The one thing that I really, really, really love about this series is that fact that the end of the book leaves it open for another book but it's never a cliffhanger. I absolutely hate those. AND these books have some incredible sex in them.
I hope we're not going to have to wait another (almost) year for the next in the series.

As to the narrator: Ms. Potter did an awesome job. Every person had their own voice and personality. I never get tired of listening to her.
