Week 47 Review: Blade of Darkness

From Goodreads:
Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.

Dana Pembroke has been able to glimpse the future of those she touches for as long as she can remember. But she never saw Aidan coming. When the tall, dark Celt with the charming grin yet world-weary eyes walks through her door, the future she sees for him is one full of violence, danger, deception... and passion. Because amidst the terrifying battles that unfold in her visions, she also sees herself in Aidan's arms and in his bed. Dana knows she should keep her distance, but the tender moments and laughter they share entice her even as she finds herself thrust into a world of vampires, immortals, and other preternatural beings.

Immortal Guardian Aidan O'Byrne has been hunting and slaying psychotic vampires for nearly three thousand years, so visions of bloody battles don't trouble him. The battles Dana foresees, however, show Aidan's brethren turning against him, so he can't help but feel alarmed. While he spends as much time as he can with Dana, struggling to decipher her dire predictions, Aidan finds himself utterly smitten. Hope rises that he has finally found a woman who can banish the darkness and loneliness that plague him. But when vampires begin targeting Dana and a powerful enemy spawns chaos, will fate grant them time to find happiness together?

My Review:
This book was just absolutely incredible! It's been awhile since I read the previous book in the series, so it took me a bit to get into the groove, but once I did, it was smooth sailing from there! I'm so glad that Aidan got a book, he deserved one, after 3000 years alone!

I really enjoyed Aidan and Dana! We knew of Aidan's plan to make acquaintances of the female gifted ones, to see if he could love. While this causes a lot of problems, it also is how they meet, and they were so great together!

Dana's introduction into this world was pretty intense, having Roland trying to kill Aidan, and having Seth show up! And while she gets the important details at a pace she can handle them, she still has a strong reaction to protect Aidan, like tasing and later tranquilizing Roland. Oh, and trying to
tranquilize Seth. Those moments were so hilarious!

Dana saw that Aidan was going to be attacked by Roland, and by Seth. Both of these were because of the actions of the bad guy, who is more devious and powerful than previously thought! They did beat him, but he's still out there, and that's going to cause a lot of trouble in the future!

This book was absolutely incredible, and I can't wait for the next book!
