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. . .
Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians protect humanity from unspeakable horrors--but their hearts are as fragile as any mortal's. . .
For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for--and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.
Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?
I just loved reading this series! They just keep getting better and better, and Night Unbound was just so fantastic! I can't wait to read Shadows Strike because it happens next! Though there's no definite information about book 7 besides that it's supposed to be Aidan's book and come out Summer 2017!
These two books let the other two d'Alençon siblings to find happiness, which was fantastic, to have all of them fall in love one after another! Night Unbound was the second book without a transformation, Ami can't be and doesn't need it, and Lisette already was, and Zach didn't need to! Yep!
So much happened in these books! Like, an upped dose of the drug, that first needed a double dose of the counter drug which did funky things to them, which was hilarious! Or upped it again that it sent Lisette into a coma! And we learned more about the Others and Seth!
So the ending of Night Unbound, that was a bit hard! I don't think the younger Immortal is dead! I think he got taken by the rogue Other! Who has to be captured, given that he wants to start the apocalypse, apparently! Oh, and we have to find out what proof there was to make the Others believe that they have to stay out of the world!
Yeah, these books were just so great! I need to read more!
