Publisher's Summary

Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special. He can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she's exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians are in danger, too. He'll have to accept Krysta's help to save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost to his heart might be higher . . .

    "Love this Series- Good but less Exciting"

    First of all let me say this is one of my favorite series- so by all means a good story. My personal taste is more towards friction and a slower build up to the characters falling in love - and in this story it happened a bit too quick for my preference.

    The surrounding familiar characters and continued back story with Zach, Amy and Seth kept the pot brewing. Kristen Potter in my opinion makes the entire listen come to life- she is amazing!!

    I just missed the struggle and interactions that blend suspense with the dance of two coming together- perhaps I wanted more of a tango and that is just unique to my taste. If you are similar- this one may seem a tad less exciting- but still a fun continuation of a great series.

    Enjoy-

    Story
    "Hot French guy!!!!! and sassy girl love it!"
    What did you love best about Darkness Rises?

    The interaction between Etienne and Krysta.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Krysta as she was a gifted one that hunted vampires for six years alone, only her brother was with her as her personally healer.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    Etienne. He sounded so good and...well let's just say I'll do him. If he was alive.


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

    Vampires beware or something like that.

    "Great narrater"

    Kristen Potter makes me feel like I'm actually part of the story. I feel like I'm right there in the book. It helps that the story line was written well also.

    "The Best So Far"

    Krysta and Etienne are wonderful together. I have to say they are definitely my favorite immortal couple so far. I laughed the entire time. Talk about made for each other, they certainly are!!!! 😍😍😍

    "Awesome! A must read series."

    Etienne has always been one of me favorite characters. Krysta brings the modern world to the group and Etienne handles it well. True he isn't as old as some of the others but the connection is electric.

    Story
    "To many I Love you's?"
    Where does Darkness Rises rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Better than many


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Darkness Rises?

    When you find out Zack isn't the bad guy


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, she is very good at character development


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

    I laughed out loud several times. Way to much mush in this one, didn't fit in well with the storyline. In the middle of a battle, turn to each other "I love you" really!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy this series. It has a good plot that draws you, but the romance just did not fit in as well as the first 3 books.
