Krysta was used to fighting on her own when it came against vampires. She will become confused when a vampire starts to save her life every time she faces a pack of vampires. She will get to know this man, Etienne, to find out there is much more to him and to her.
Etienne was not a vampire but an Immortal Guardian. He is a protector and will be playing that role once again when it came to Krysta. He will be impressed with her skill and know that she was different. He will also know that her life is in danger thanks to her killing certain vampires.
Darkness Rises is the fourth book to the series Immortal Guardians by Dianne Duvall. I liked the book but I will say I was a little confused by it. There were plenty of things happening in the book with many characters which I needed to keep straight. Now Duvall writes who these people are but I felt I was missing more of those details that I would receive if I had read the prior stories.
The idea of these gifted ones and immortal guardians were an interesting twist to vampire stories that left me turning the pages. Krysta’s character was strong and was cheerful even with all that she was dealing with. I liked her spirit and her power to read auras was interesting. Etienne is a strong immortal and has his own ability which is telepathy which comes in handy. I was reminded of Lynsay Sands story Love Bites and Tall, Dark and Hungry, not because their writing is similar just that Etienne and Bastien are the same names used in both stories. It is not an important fact, it just popped in my head while I was reading the story which I thought was interesting. I don’t read many stories that have names like Etienne or Bastien.
Now as I have said from above that I was a little confused but the book intrigued me and I would be interested to start at the beginning of the series to see how it all started.
