Rating : 5 Stars
Blurb : The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out…U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive…
Shadows Strike by Dianne Duvall
Just let me sit here in silence and stare at the title for a little longer
Just enjoy the fact that I was one of the lucky ones to get my hands on this ARC
â¦There are âseries with booksâ and there are âbook seriesâ
If a book belongs to the first category you will soon â¦like after one or two books notice that an author is getting tired of his own characters. Actions start to repeat themselves. And the reader thinks at first (like in book 3 or so)
âDidnât I read something like this before in the other bookâ and later (in book 4 or 5) âAgain ?!? â really?ââ¦.
and that is when the series slowly dies.
But enough of that depressing ideaâ¦ because out there are also real âbook seriesâ â¦ And for all those who do not know what I mean ? Please let me introduce you to Dianne Duvallâs âImmortal Guardiansâ â¦ You want to know a secret ?
These books get better and better with each new release !
The worst book of this series (for me) was the first one â¦ #laughingâ¦ and not because of the actual story but simply because of vegetables â¦ yeah go on .. #laugh â¦ but I really thought if I was ever going to hear anything about vegetables I would throw the book out the windowâ¦ I knew what she wanted to express then but it still annoyed the hell out of me – â¦ but looking back it makes me laugh â¦
This series is the most surprising one I have ever read so farâ¦
After reading all the books I am pretty sure I could be sitting on a roof devouring a DumDum Lollipop, while talking to an angel, start believing in aliens and still be in a vampire novel. At least that is what it feels like when reading Dianne Duvallâs books â she really could sell the reader anything and everything â itâs just her way of writing that captures youâ¦ but of course angels and aliens would be going to far â¦ so this is just my imagination as we are talking about vampires novels â¦or immortals? Or?
Well you should find out for yourself I refuse to go into details to avoid any kind of spoilersâ¦
Just be sure of one or two things â¦
First – If you are new to this series â please start with the first book â even if I was annoyed by vegetables â it is necessary if you want to fully enjoy the story to start at the beginningâ¦
Second – If you are following the series so far â you can look forward to a beautiful story in Ms. Duvallâs wonderful world. A story that will capture you like her other books did before and I cannot wait to find out what will happen next.
Third â have enough time to devour it â¦ I had to stop several times and believe me Stopping to read when your heart is racing due to whats happening in a book is annoying the hell out of meâ¦
