Darkness Dawns

Darkness Dawns is the first book in the Immortal Guardians series by Dianne Duvall. This book was recommended on Goodreads so I decided to check it out. Boy, I’m glad that I did!

This is a paranormal romance featuring Sarah Bingham, who is a music professor, living in North Carolina. She is a tiny little organic food nut who ends up saving an Immortal Guardian (a powerful vampire-like man) named Roland Warbrook. Of course Roland is a hottie, who has equally hot and powerful friends (Marcus, Seth, and David). Roland has a special power – he can heal using his hands. He cracks me up when he tries to lie to Sarah about his identity. She totally doesn’t buy his CIA undercover identity. He’s lucky he can communicate through thoughts to Seth, who backs up his lame-ass story!

Ms. Duvall’s concept of Immortals was unique. I liked how they differed from vampires. They are definitely  more noble, trying to protect humanity from vampires afflicted with blood lust. They each have a special gift, which is cool. Well, Marcus’s gift of seeing dead people isn’t quite so much fun.

The romance between Roland and Sarah built nicely. Once things finally happened between the two, they were insatiable! Not a bad thing, mind you! I liked how Ms. Duvall wrapped things up so there could be a HEA for the two.

The book was fast-paced, action-filled, and held my attention. I had difficulty putting it down. I’ve already purchased the second book, Marcus’s, for my Kindle. Bastien’s book is the third in the series.

4.5 out of 5 stars. Check out this series – you won’t be disappointed!
