Awaken the Darkness

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her. When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her thatagainst all reasonshe makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesnt have to fix up the place. So she cant explain why she bought it.

  • A book away from an episode of hoarders

    I love this series so much. I was just going to read ONE MORE chapter before bed and now it’s 4 hours past my bedtime, I just finished this book and I have to get up in 4 hours for work.

    Woo! Can’t wait for the next one

    Reasons, Awaken the Darkness, is my favorite book of the series to date. 

    Duvall brings her characters completely to life. She fleshes them out and gives these characters history, baggage, emotions, and family ties. She allows the reader to become emotional connected. The story begins with a prologue.  The Immortals are attacking compound . We feel our hero's pain as one of his own is torn from this world. Then the world goes dark before he awakens in pain and finds himself trapped beneath dirt

    Really good, better than anything I’ve read in a while. I must admit confusion. I’m not a re-reader and with so much time between books, I couldn’t remember the circumstances of Stan’s situation. I also felt lost about Uri. I think I missed a novella or maybe book. I only listen to this series, so if it’s not on audible, I haven’t “read” it. So much of the book I accepted the backstory without really remembering it. I think it took a little of my enjoyment away. Yes, we were given the history in ...more

    This was my first audio and such a wonderful experience! I always wanted to listen to an audiobook, I even tried two or three times but the narrations were really slow! So I switched to the books! But this one was really good! Kirsten Potter did a good job on this one, it had a good speed on it and she did a fantastic job on the Russian accent! Loved it! I like this world Dianne Duvall created! I enjoyed all the books in this series and love all its characters. I would enjoy it more if

    Awaken the Darkness is the latest installment in the Immortal Guardians series. And just like all of the other ones that I have read, I loved it. This is Stanislov's story. If you haven't read the series up to this point, make sure to read the prologue. It will catch you up a bit. Stan has been missing form the group for two years and feared dead by his friends. I loved finally finding out what happened to him. Thank you to the author or bringing him back!

    I'm not going to spoil where he has bee

    Book #8 in the Immortal Guardians series brings a change in pace from the earlier books as we shift away from the action for a bit and in its place we get a slower-moving, heartfelt romance that is gorgeously sweet and swoony. Of course there is still some action and supernatural goings, it’s more about the love story in this one, and I loved it!

    Before that this book, and this review, contains spoilers for earlier books in the series so make sure you’ve read the previous books before div

    Ooh. That’s so cool. Even in your thoughts, your voice deepens and gets all growly when you’re turned on. Before he could respond, she made a sound of impatience. Damn it. Now I’m turned on.


    I love Stanislav! Despite his badassery, he is such a gentle soul. Kind, polite, and absolutely charming, he’s nothing but sweet and respectful with Susan. His vulnerability over his predicament is beautifully written and gives him a softer edge, but he’s also fiercely protective and sexy as all hell. And Susan is a great match for him - smart, sensible and confident, she is surprisingly welcoming and accepting of Stanislav's presence in her life, but she more than held her own against him, and I loved watching things develop between them.

    “You need someone you can trust.”

    Smiling, he touched her cheek. “I already have someone I trust. You.”

    She clasped his wrists and turned her head, pressing a kiss to his palm. “Flirt.”

    He winked. “Just wait until I confirm I'm not married. Then I'll take flirting to a whole new level.”

    “Hell yes, you will,” she declared.

    He laughed.


    But there are people who knew that Stanislav was buried and they will stop at nothing to try and find him again. And how will Stanislav get his memories back and what will happen when he does? He knows that he is different, and he has natural instincts that are not normal, but he doesn’t know why. And what of the Immortal Guardians who think he’s dead? So many questions to be answered, and I was so excited as I read, trying to figure out how it was all going to happen and beyond excited to get there.

    But I did enjoy the slower pace of this book. With Stanislav removed from the rest of the Immortal Guardians, there’s a different feel to this one without all of the action and intrigue that comes with the group. There is still some excitement, but I appreciated the attention paid to Stanislav and Susan’s unfolding love story as they fell hard for each other. They are fun and playful together, and although things happen quickly, it feels like a slow burn, and there’s a delicious sense of anticipation as we wait for it all to happen for them.

    The rest of the Immortal Guardians do eventually make an appearance in scenes that had me grinning like an idiot, and the book ends beautifully – better than I could have hoped, and a balm to the soul of series fans.

    I loved this book! It was a great addition to the series, and I eagerly await whoever’s story is coming next!

    4 stars.

    This was a great story and addition to the series. I will say that I've been wondering what happened to Yuri so it's nice to find out and see him get together with Susan. Yuri's story is somewhat of a standalone as the rest of the series characters don't come into it until much later in the story. And since he lost his memory, there are more explanations than there normally might be.

    Susan is a woman with powers, the ability to hear the thoughts of others. This has often been as much o
