Publisher's Summary

The Dark Protectors are back! All new stories and a great entry point for new fans! Vampire King Ronan Kayrs wasn't supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn't supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn't supposed to finally touch the woman who's haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds. 

Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist... they're hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy - that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.

Definitely an adjustment

I was really excited to get a new book from the Dark Protectors series. At first, I didn’t realize that this was a first book of a spin-off series. There is definitely an adjustment to the plot and I struggled a bit with it. I also must admit, that for the first time, I did not like the Heroine. Faith is supposed to be a brainiac but she is really an idiot; and a lousy judge of character. She also was contrary just because she thought it made her more independent. She would argue that the sky isn’t blue just because the Hero said it was. In addition, I did not like this narrator. She often gets her character voices confused and reads lots of the text rather monotone.

I’m hoping that I enjoy the next book, in the series, more because The Dark Protectors is one of my all time favorite paranormal series.

Worth the wait!

Warning -- SPOILER ALERT
This review contains a couple of spoilers from the first 7 books. Don't start the series here if you want to experience this saga from the beginning. Book 8 is a new beginning, but many of the characters were introduced in the first seven books.

I was very disappointed when the Dark Protectors series ended. A few month ago, when I saw Vampire's Faith listed in pre-orders, I purchased it right away and waited patiently for it to be released. I was not disappointed. The story of Ronan Kayrs is beginning of a whole new adventure. It is great to see Garrett Kayrs and Logan Kyllwood back. I hope to see more of the Kayrs and Kyllwood families in future books. I also like the narrator, Gabra Zackman, much better.

This book opens up a few years after book 7. I'm glad Rebecca Zanetti set up the opportunity an extension of the series when she ended that book. The first cycle started when Janie and Zane met in a dream world as children in book 1. I looked forward to experiencing their journey as I read the other books. When I started reading this series, books 1 - 7 had all been published. I was happy to see that. It would have been torturous to wait years to see how their story ended. The ending was satisfying. Their union helped to unite two warring species. But the destruction of their dream world has set in motion a new problem. Book 7 ended with the promise of a new beginning and a new adventure. Janie and Zane's seven year old daughter Hope has her own dream world. Her parents haven't discovered that yet, but I'm sure they eventually will. Hope shares her dream world with Drake, who is also seven. Their people are enemies, but they have decided to be friends. And so it begins again. I am looking forward to experiencing their journey, which will probably take several years and several books.

The main story features Ronan Kayrs and Faith Cooper. In a way their story reminds me of Cara and Talon from the first book, Fated. Faith is completely unaware of the existence of vampires and other creatures. As she is pulled into their world as a fated mate, she eventually accepts that fact. Ronan was a part of something big hundreds of years ago, and now he must complete the mission that was started long ago. I am looking forward to reading about Ronan's journey. As the Kayrs family and the Kyllwood family are joined by other powerful creatures, this promises to be an adventure of epic proportions.

Thank you Rebecca Zanetti. I will be able to enjoy more adventures from the Dark Protectors for years to come.
PS -- I hope Nick Veis will return in future books. He and Zane are great team, and I would love to have update on what is happening in his life.

Ronan and Faith

With Vampire’s Faith, we return to the Dark Protectors world along with Ronan Kayrs. Ronan has been in another dimension for many years. When his part of the protective wall fails, Ronan wakes in a world totally unfamiliar to him, and to his mate. Faith is a scientist, a doctor. She is having a hard time believing that Ronan is sane, let alone that he is a vampire and she is his mate. These two make a great pair. Challenge is a good word to describe their relationship.

This installment of Dark Protectors takes us right back into the Realm and its fight against evil. The Kurjans are still here and scheming against the vampires. We get a glimpse of familiar characters and a hint of what has been happening in the Realm. The characters are strong, determined, and protective. The story is a page-turner – exciting, intense and dangerous. Gabra Zackman does a great job. Her narration brings the listener right into the story. Vampire’s Faith is a winner, an excellent addition to the series.

It's not your normal Dark Protector book

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I think a lot has to do, for me, the narrator. I had just done a re-listen to the previous Dark Protectors where Karen White was the narrator preparing for this book thinking it was a continuation of the other series. It was hard for me to actually get into this book because of a new narrator and it's not an actual a continuation per se. It shouldn't be listed as book 8 maybe? It's a spin off of Dark Protectors like the Realm Endorsers.

I'm just finishing up listening to this book as I'm typing this and feel I will have to buy the book so I can read it and maybe I can follow along with everything better.

NO REAL FOCAL POINT TO THE STORY!!

I Am so Sorry but I did not like this new arch to the Dark Protector series. Marked bk.7 was suppose to be the end of the Dark Protector series published in 2014 and it was a Excellent ending to a great series. RZ should have left it there, because with Vampire Faith it is obvious she has knowing new to add to the series.

Ronan and Faith are always running under constant attack. Faith is a very unlikable heroine. The Good Guys are getting there butts kicked and all they do is run. The storyline has no Focal Point its sort of all over the place. We have new childhood friends that meet in the Dream World just like Janie and Zane but now its there daughter Hope. Faith is always fighting and arguing with Ronan . Instead of being supportive. She is just unlikable.

The Dark Protector series use to be one of my favorites and books 1-7 will stay on my favorite list but I won't be wasting my time or money on the newer books in the Dark Protector series.
