Title: Night Reigns (Immortal Guardians, #2) Author: Dianne Duvall Publisher: Zebra, 320 Pages (December 6th, 2011) From:the Author, Thank You! Synopsis: Ami isn't much for trusting strangers. She has a hard time trusting anyone. But she's no coward, and she's no pushover in the protection department either. So when she comes across a mysterious warrior taking on eight deranged vampires on his own, she doesn't hesitate to save his bacon. Of course, that was before she realized what one little rescue would get her into . . .
Marcus Grayden has been an immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years, and at the moment he's not interested in backup. From the moment Ami arrives in his life, he can't deny that she's strong, smart, and extremely skilled at watching his back. But she's also destroying his protective solitude and stirring desires he can't bear to awaken. After all, whatever her secrets — how can she defeat death itself?
Review: 4 Stars- Night Reigns, the second book in the Immortal Guardians
series by Dianne Duvall is another action packed story that picks up soon after
the end of the first book in the series, Darkness Dawns. With fascinating
characters we met in the first book, Night Reigns is the continuing story in
the Guardians fight to save humans from Vampires.
Ami and Marcus are the focus this time. The book follows
them as Ami is assigned to be Marcus’s second – each Guardian is assigned a
human who aids them in the world. One reason that they need a second is that
over many hundreds of years there have been gifted ones. An example would be
someone who can glimpse the future. Those gifted ones can be turned into a
Guardian, which is something kind of like a Vampire. They have fangs, drink
blood and have to avoid sunlight. They eat food, but have to be careful because
it affects them differently. The Vampires in this series are very different
from vampires in other books. There is a vast difference between Guardians and
Vampires, so don’t worry.
Back to Ami and Marcus. So, she’s assigned to be his second,
which doesn't go over very well. However Ami’s not your normal woman, which
comes out to be somewhat shocking when it’s revealed just who she is. Ami’s
character was a nice addition to the series. She added a whole new layer to
Marcus and the other Guardians and completely put a new spin on the overall
Marcus is hardheaded, which seems to be how many of the male
Guardians are. I guess I would be somewhat stubborn and set in my ways too if I
had lived over 800 years. The relationship between Marcus and Ami is rocky at
best. Yet the changes we see in the two as
they figure out who each other is, overcoming painful pasts and growing together
in the story make them a strong couple.
All in all, Duvall has yet again managed to pull me far from
reality as I quickly found myself lost within the pages of another dangerously
addictive, action packed ride. I can’t wait for what comes next, enjoy!
