Review: Blade of Darkness by Dianne Duvall

About the book

Blade of Darkness
(Immortal Guardians #7)
by Dianne Duvall

ebook
Publication Date: September 19th 2017

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?

reviewI feel like I always write the same stuff whenever I review a book of Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians series, but I’m not quite sure what else I should write instead of just saying as it is: I loved it, the writing, the story, the characters, the chemistry, the way it had me hooked. I’m never disappointed when I read a book by Dianne Duvall. I know that when I open one of her books I’m in for fun, action, romance, twists and just the feeling of belonging.

I love her Immortal Guardians series and I hope for a lot more books in this series. I could write a long, long list with all the names of characters that I want to see with a happy ending.

Modern-day bounty hunter Bethany Bennett helps her brother track two fugitives to a forest outside of Houston, Texas.

A Sorceress of His Own (The Gifted Ones, #1) – http://amzn.to/2azImN6


qandawithdianneThank you Emalie, for letting me visit and for helping me celebrate the upcoming release of RENDEZVOUS WITH YESTERDAY! I’m so happy to be here today.

1. How much fun is it for you to integrate your Immortal Guardian characters into the Gifted Ones series?

It is extremely fun. I think Seth, Roland, and Marcus will always be favorite characters for me because they’ve been with me longer than any others. I actually wrote A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN before I began my Immortal Guardians series, but publishers at the time had little interest in historical romances that contained paranormal elements. But Seth, Roland, and Marcus sparked my curiosity and fired my imagination so much that I kept asking What if . . .? questions until the answers led me to my Immortal Guardians books. I particularly enjoy seeing Marcus as a mortal teenager in A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN and RENDEZVOUS WITH YESTERDAY, so lighthearted and carefree. It’s a side of him that didn’t really reveal itself again until after he met Ami eight hundred years later. And seeing Seth and Roland in the Middle Ages is a lot of fun as well.

2. How many books do you intend to write for the Gifted Ones series?

I don’t have a specific number in mind. As a writer, I’m a pantser rather than a plotter. Instead of determining ahead of time how many books I will write in a series, which characters will get their own book, in what order, and exactly what will happen in each novel or novella, I let the stories unfold as I write them and often don’t know until the end of my current work in progress whose book will be next. So as long as stories that revolve around gifted ones (men and women who were born with special gifts, like telepathy, telekinesis, the ability to heal with one’s hands, etc.) dance through my head, I will continue to write them.

3. Since I haven’t had the chance to read Rendezvous With Yesterday I have to ask: Does no one miss Bethany from her original time? How does that work?

Hmm. That’s one I can’t really answer without spoilers. I can tell you though, that Bethany has an older brother—her only living relative—who is also her best friend. And (I don’t think this is much of a spoiler since I allude to it in the blurb) the fact that she goes back in time and he doesn’t is a serious concern for her because she doesn’t know what happened to him.

4. If you had to rewrite one scene in Rendezvous With Yesterday which one would you pick?

I’m actually happy with RENDEZVOUS WITH YESTERDAY the way it is. I did, however, include a Bonus Scene in it. It’s a scene I really liked that originally took place near the end of the book. But it features Marcus, and this is Robert and Bethany’s story. So I ultimately decided to remove it and include it as a Bonus Scene that I thought would interest both The Gifted Ones and Immortal Guardians fans.

5. Which character is the one that you can relate to the most: Bethany or Alyssa (A Sorceress of His Own)?

Well, I like that both women are strong, intelligent, loyal to those they love, and are brave even when afflicted by fear and pain. Neither cowers in the face of adversity. And I like the way both women react and adapt to the huge changes their lives undergo. But I think I relate more to Bethany . . . and not just because she’s from the same time as I am. It’s her personality. Her sense of humor. Her tendency to tease (or taunt in the case of Sir Stephen—LOL) and spark smiles and laughter from those around her. Laughter has always been a big part of my life, even in dark times. So I can really relate to her quips, jests, and playful banter.

This is an exciting and captivating novella set in the world of the Immortal Guardians and I can’t wait for you to read it!
review
I already knew how Phantom Embrace would end, since I read the other books in the Immortal Guardians series, but this novella makes the end of Night Unbound so much more bearable.
The relationship between Yuri and Cat was cute and heartbreaking and I kind of hope to hear from those two again in a later Immortal Guardians book, but I’m not sure if it will actual happen. Only time can tell. Make it happen, Dianne!

I can’t wait to read more of the immortal guardians and this world.

~ This novella can – at least in my opinion – be read as a standalone ~

Dianne: Thank you, Emalie, for helping me celebrate the release of my Immortal Guardians novella PHANTOM EMBRACE. I’m so happy to be here at Bookgatherer.

It’s a pleasure having you here!! Now starting with the Q&A…

When did you get the idea to match Cat and Yuri?

Dianne: I have wanted to give Cat her own story ever since I wrote the first book in the series, DARKNESS DAWNS. But I didn’t find the right hero for her until I wrote the fifth book, NIGHT UNBOUND. After I finished that one, I knew Yuri was the perfect hero for her. And I really wanted Yuri to have his own HEA.

I’m quite sure I’m not the only one wondering, but now that Yuri and Cat have found their happily-ever-after will we be seeing them again?

Dianne: You definitely aren’t the only one wondering. Normally I don’t like saying much about future books, but so many have asked me that I’ll say . . . Yes, you’ll see Yuri and Cat again. I just won’t say when or where.

How did you feel when you hit the end of Phantom Embrace?

Dianne: I felt great. Cat’s long years of loneliness ended with her finally getting the HEA I’ve been wanting to give her. And Yuri found the love for which he has been waiting centuries. After all that happened in the last book, that was important to me.

Did you have a favorite song or even a playlist while writing Phantom Embrace that you would like to share with us?

Dianne: I admit to being partial to Disturbed’s Down With the Sickness, since the immortals and vampires in my series gain their superior speed, strength, and heightened senses from a rare symbiotic virus that infects them. But I generally prefer to write in quiet.

Who is your favorite character out of all of your books – yes, I’m aware that’s like picking your favorite child.

Dianne: That is such a hard question to answer! But if I absolutely have to choose a favorite, it’s Seth. Seth is the immensely powerful leader of the Immortal Guardians. He works so hard to provide the other immortals with a warm family environment, and sacrifices so much for them. And Seth has been with me for a very long time. I first created him years ago for A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN (the first book in The Gifted Ones series). His presence in that one (and that of Alyssa, the heroine) fired my imagination and inspired many of the what-ifs that led me to create my Immortal Guardians series. So without Seth, neither of my series would exist . . . which is also why I can’t wait to give him his own book.

by Dianne Duvall

Paperback/eBook, 320 pages

Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra

ISBN 1420129821

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…

Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Zebra
ISBN 1420125133

Four of today’s most intriguing paranormal authors entice readers deep into the shadows, where vampires, immortals, and other supernatural creatures heat up the night…

ON THE HUNT by Alexandra Ivy
Mika Tanner has loved Bailey Morrell, a beautiful Healer, since childhood. But his duty as a Sentinel, a supernatural guardian of an ancient race, clashed with her rebellious spirit. Now a dangerous new anarchist group not only threatens life as they know it—but any chance of their being together again…

SCORPIUS RISING by Rebecca Zanetti
While searching for a meteorite, Nora Mendina is arrested by her sheriff ex-husband—who’s only gotten hotter than the Nevada desert since she last saw him. When the meteorite breaks open, the few survivors gain extraordinary powers, unleashing a crazed super genius killer. Can Nora and her ex stop the murders…while igniting a new love affair?

PHANTOM EMBRACE by Dianne Duvall
Immortal Yuri Sokolov was born with the ability to see spirits, yet he’s never seen one as lovely as Cat Seddon, the woman who haunts his home and his dreams. But amid their star-crossed love, a new danger may have Yuri facing a different kind of eternity.

STAKE OUT by Hannah Jayne
Vampire fashion designer Nina LaShay has a lot on her plate—just two days until fashion week and the model who was flirting with her photographer boyfriend is now a corpse in her studio. But when dead turns into undead and dangerous, Nina must find out who’s responsible…before the beautiful baby vamp takes too many bites out of the Big Apple.
