Publisher's Summary

US law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds but not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can't guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes. Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, with the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she's awake, she isn't sure that she can trust Ethan or the shadow organization he represents. The US military doesn't trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that's coming, it will take everything they have just to survive....

series is slowing down

I have enjoyed this series of books, liked the characters and setting. I am finding that repetition of the setting and characters is getting redundant. This couple seems less interesting, however, and it seemed to me the action is slowing down, or again perhaps redundant.

hoping for something new from this author and narrator...

Way to move to the next level!

Wow! Just wow! I waited over a year for this installment, and it was well worth the wait! We get to see the unfolding story of the Immortal Guardian Ethan, and his lady love Heather. There is plenty of action to make you become fully hooked into the story, and may cause you to want to listen in one sitting. That's pretty much what I did! We got to see what has been happening since the last battle with all those rouge vampires, and boy didn't they come back with a vengeance! Thank goodness there are those like Ethan, Seth, Roland, David, and all those kick ass ladies and seconds to put thing to right! Way to go Immortal Guardians! Five star rating all the way in my opinion! Nothing wrong with this book. Absolutely nothing!

I liked it but...

Not my favorite book. I've enjoyed all of the series so far... but this one lacked something???
Just didn't feel the same attraction to the love interests in this one. Heather often seemed trite & lacked the seriousness & drive that a military consultant should have possessed. Wish more story had been developed around her work for the government. And while Ethan was cute... his character lacked the back story necessary to make me relate to & love him. All in all.. I'd recommend listening to this book only because you need the continuity of the storyline to continue in the series. As usual... Seth, David & Zack made the story worthwhile! ps... Will Seth ever find love again? I hope so ♡♡♡

Can do no wrong. It's not the best of the series, but it's still excellent. More...please...more...

Skip This One

I like this series but #6 is weak in narration and story. I deleted if after only 5 1/2 chapters.

The plot is expanding. Very interesting!

The latest book on the Immortal Guardians series is adding more new characters and it's becoming very challenging. Seth has his hands full with a very dangerous enemy. The whole world is in great danger of being destroyed by a rogue elder. Looking forward to the next book.

although I didn't really like Heather and Ethan as a couple, I liked all the other stuff going on around them.

Immortal Guardians are great, but not #6 :-(

I have adored this world since the first book, it is seriously one of my favorite series of all times, which is why I was really disappointed with this installment.

Maybe it was this is the story of Ethan, a barely 100 year old immortal. He is the one that had been sleeping with Lizette until Zach came along. I really liked that he found someone he could be with now that Lizette is taken but it was all too cookie cutter for my liking.

Is she a gifted one wasn't up for debate, and so many other things happened that just had me thinking this plot is just full of contrived drama for the sake of it, and I really dislike that in my books. One beloved character goes a bit wonky and we never find out of it's a permanent thing or not. Many new people are introduced and can't tell if they are trust worthy or not. Overall I was just sadly disappointed that it didn't feel like a real story, just a bunch of characters we know and love sitting around chatting...absolutely no point to most of it.

Kirsten Potter was still great of course, just sad to have waited this long for....blah!
