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. She also cant explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows sh...

Awaken the Darkness Reviews
Susan Meyer has a gift that has its pros and cons. The pro being she constantly hears people's thoughts, even going one step further by being able to view their history. The con is that she constantly hears people's thoughts, which is why she needs a remote place to live where she won't be exposed to the constant bombardment of people's thoughts.
Finding an excellent multi level home that meets all her needs, Susan resigns herself to pass as the purchase price is way beyond her means. Yet. It se ...more
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
As a reader from the first book's release, I am amazed at Dianne Duvall's artistry. She's a master at her craft in creating beautifully woven tales full of heart, action, and fantasy. Each and every book is incredible and to keep up that level of quality through even a few books, much less EIGHT now (plus two novellas), is truly amazing.
This book is no exception. It can be read as a stand alone due to relevant past events being explained or even shown and done so in a way that feels refreshing ...more
Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians is my favorite series hands down. Every character is beloved. Every story is intense, funny, romantic and exciting. If you haven’t read the Immortal Guardians, you are truly missing out!
If you read the IG series, you are among those of us who have been fretting and stressing out for some time now about what fate befell Stanislov during the battle with the mercenaries. We lost one Immortal Guardian and that loss was already devastating. The thought of losing Sta ...more
The old home in the rural country of North Carolina is exactly what Susan has been looking for. It has the seclusion she desperately needs. The house itself instills a warm comforting feeling every time she is in it. Susan knows it will take her forever to update the house the way it needs. She just can't seem to walk away from it.
Gravely wounded, buried, abandoned, and believed dead Stanislav has to rely on his gifts to free himself from his dirt tomb. There is just one problem once he gets fr ...more
I thought Susan was more likable than some of the other human women in the books and selfless at times. I didn't like the woman in the previous book so that was a relief. It was really great to learn more about Stanislav. I felt for him with all that he'd gone through for such a long time. Susan was a wonderful savior and it was interesting to see one of the immortal guardians in such a vulnerable state.
I wish there'd been more romance in this book in the form of sex but I liked this cou ...more
Audible book review of Awaken the Darkness. The Narrator Kristin Potter was Outstanding as usual. The storyline not so much. I am so Happy that Stanislav is alive and has found love with Susan both of this characters have strong resemblances to the other Immortal Guardians and Gifted One in the prior books. Its like the names were changed but its the same character descriptions of prior IG and GO's. The story itself reminded me a bit of the 2nd book "Dark Desire" in the Dark Series by Christine ...more
This is a fun PNR/UF that I have enjoyed since the first book. If you haven't read them, you are missing out on some laughs, adventure and romance. I do suggest starting with the first book in the series to really get to know all the characters and it also helps to make sense of the overall series arc.
In this book we go a bit back in time to an incident that hurt the guardians. This is Stanislav's story and what happened to him during the incident and 2 years later. Stan is a man of honor and it ...more
