Darkness Rises by Dianne Duvall

In DARKNESS RISES, Dianne Duvall introduces to a couple of really interesting new characters: Krysta and her brother Sean. Krysta is a gifted one who knows nothing about the Immortal Guardians. She's been hunting vampires on her own for six years, after her husband was murdered and she was left for dead by a vampire. Krysta's ability to see auras makes her better able to fight vampires, something her brother can't do. But Sean has the ability to heal so he spends his evenings healing Krysta after her battles. It's an existence that can only end one way, until Krysta catches Étienne's eye during a battle. Étienne is immediately drawn to Krysta and Krysta to Étienne, though she hates herself for being attracted to a "vampire". She learns the truth when Étienne saves her from a military unit that was trying to apprehend him and she and Sean are introduced to the world of the Immortal Guardians.

I really enjoyed these new developments. This is a great way to grow the series, introducing new gifted ones and a renewed military threat. Krysta and Sean are great additions to the Immortal Guardians network/family, and Duvall plants some very interesting seeds for future novels with this renewed military effort to capture and study an Immortal Guardian. I can't say too much about it since it would be a major spoiler but I will say that these developments have me even more excited about this series.

We also get to know Zach, Seth's fellow angel, a lot better. He's so different from Seth but I found him to be very interesting. His relationship with Ami is adorable and Duvall seems to be getting ready to hook him up with one of the Immortal Guardians, which will hopefully happen sooner rather than later, so that I can get more of him.

DARKNESS RISES is a great paranormal romance and a strong entry in the Immortal Guardians series. Duvall's initial story arc wrapped up in the last novel but she's created some very intriguing possibilities this time around, which has renewed my enthusiasm for this series. This is one PNR series I would recommend to anyone who appreciates great characters, continued story arcs, and passionate romance. For the full picture, you should start with DARKNESS DAWNS but you could probably pick up DARKNESS RISES with little difficulty.
