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...
Heather saw her future and Ethan was her savior.
Heather Lane has been reliving a nightmare every day for a while now. When the visions in her nightmare become a reality she is sucked into the supernatural world of the immortals and vampires.
Wow, Heather was truly an amazing character!
I could go on and on about the way I was drawn in by this couple and how amazing their romance was…and of course it was all that. But what caught me most about this story was its uniqueness to the rest of this series. Of course, Duvall wrote another winner with Shadow Strike but this story seemed to push the plot in a new direction with a new, unknown but very menacing threat and I straight out loved it.
If that doesn’t grab you then the mass of all the past characters and their intrical immersion into this plot will without a doubt thrill any Immortal Guardian fan. Although this is a new direction, all the characters we’ve come to love are present in this fabulous adventure.
Bottom line: Dianne Duvall rocks story telling! She is a go to author for me and all her books are on my must read list. If you are a paranormal romance, science fiction and/or fantasy fan add the Immortal Guardians series to your list you won't be disappointed.
