Darkness Dawns : Dianne Duvall :
It feels completely rewritten at times. I don’t remember spikes in the first one or so much detail about her house. Stacey I first read it back in and it reads the same for me. See duva,l questions about Darkness Dawns…. Lists with This Book.
And my inner Tom Cruise got all excited. The only problem with how much I liked Seth And, don’t get me wrong, I liked Roland I just wanted Seth to be in every single scene too. Cause ya’ll remember the major And being that, again, this dawne Roland’s book Roland and Sarah’s bok. I really liked this story. There was a lot of the first-book-in-a-series world building, which duvwll sometimes make a book suffer from the info dump phenomena, but I didn’t feel like such was the case here.
In fact, I really liked how the author laid out the way in which Sarah “discovers” the truth about the whole Roland-not-being-a-human thing.
There is no way any intelligent woman would believe that idanne easily. That’s great and all But, they way the author has Sarah “find out” here was very well done. Seriously, I was impressed. And I read a lot of PNR. Also, I like the overarching Seth’s story line. Dkanne I look forward to more. A solid start to an exciting PNR series.

Their ebook sales are even better with romance ebooks sitting in second place sales as of What The stats are in and, unsurprisingly to most people, Romance Novels are pretty much beating out the competition. What does this teach us kids? It follows the predictable formula fawns perfect immortal guy: Pictured above – notice I’m on a sex sells trend? Please buy this review! Meeting average, beautiful yet unfulfilled woman. Our couple is targeted by evil.
Climax is reached in more ways than one. Cue riding into the sunset. Depends what you’re riding though Duvall doesn’t offer anything new or original to this formula and the story plays out rather predictably.
Though, to be honest, that usually wouldn’t be a darknexs or really a cause for complaint from me. I mean, I’m not expecting Pulitzer prize daekness here. Nor am I expecting ground-breaking, thought-provoking storylines and prose.
After all, I’ve read quite a few Paranormal Romances now. I don’t MIND the formula. The formula works and giving this book two stars simply because it follows a highly successful formula, wouldn’t be fair. But when you use a very successful, proven and fool-proof formula that includes dkvall.
I cannot stress this enough and your book is still boring and painful to read, then you have a problem and I don’t think the formula is to blame. The problem with this book is that it’s all so delightful. So delightful that there isn’t really a compulsion to read to the end since you’re quite certain that, whatever happens, they’ll sort it out because they live in Perfect World.
A place where problems only exist to display the unshakable love that two complete strangers have formed for each other over a matter of hours. I don’t want to bash a book because the perfect immortal lead only eats organic, has a cat, a house that he built himself, has an interest in interior decorating as well as being a fearsome warrior who heals you with his hands and loves you completely after a few hours of knowing you.
First of all, that wouldn’t be fair because I like characterization of men that doesn’t restrict them to caveman Neanderthals who like cleaning weapons, whores, alcohol and couldn’t read Dr. Seuss if their masculinity depended on it. But still, when you spend pages reading about a couple’s love for Tofurkey and Eggplant Parmesan This is her favourite dish and he just happens to make it you can’t help but start rolling your eyes.
Dianne Duvall Reading Order (Immortal Guardians series)
Most of this book is spent showing you how perfect, in a very boring and PC way, this couple is for each other. In fact, I was wondering if the author wrote a story about two of the most boring characters to ever meet and bond over organic produce, only to be forced to add a couple of hastily slapped together actions points in order to publish it.
I know way more about Roland’s love of green, and perfectly designed architecture, and organic eating habits than I do about the actual damn plot of this book. Yes, there is supposed to be an element of perfection and fantasy surrounding a PNR couple. But never before have I found perfection so unspeakably boring and bland.
If you love PNR and you don’t mind predictability meets absurd perfectionism blended with copious detail then feel free to read. You’ll probably enjoy Sarah as an intelligent female protagonist. Otherwise, there’s no harm in giving this book a skip. It’s got nothing you haven’t read before. Really, they love Tofurkey. View all 24 comments.
This vampire romance novel brought to you by Captain Planet! Why, you may ask? Let me give you a few quotes and see if you can capture an underlying theme: Lots of vegetables and fruits.
Organic chicken, turkey, or other fowl. None of the heavier meats, processed, or artificial foods that contain known carcinogens or other harmful chemicals. You drinking blood is no more repellent to me than someone else eating one of those greasy triple beef hamburgers I see advertised on television.
That’s right folks, our immortal guardians are environmentally conscious. Sure, they drink blood. But, only the blood of the evil, like pedophiles, rapists, and litterbugs.
And, once they kill them, they compost their dead bodies for their organic veggie gardens. Oh, did I mention that our main character drives a Prius? Bitches love Prius’s I don’t know about you, but I like my immortal vampirish guys to be dark and mysterious.
I don’t want to think about him worrying about his cholesterol levels or spending hours in Whole Foods reading food labels.
