Review

"Ivy always packs her books with buckets of action, emotion and sexy sizzle; and the continuing presence of Levet, the mini gargoyle, is welcome comic relief. Another winner!" ---RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

I couldn't wait for this book to be released, and I have to say it definitely over delivered. In some of the other books the vamps quickly accept the mating even after centuries of solitude. Tane's reluctance came off more believable. As usual Ms. Ivy delivers very compelling characters with individual voices and unique journeys. I think the author is making an effort to make the internal dialogue more snappy with the more pop culture references which was an amusing touch in addition to Levet continuing to be a thorn in the vamp's collective sides. Usually in romances I skip the chapters which deal only with the internal strife on the side of the bad guys. My own personal $0.02 is if the hero/heroine don't get that view, I shouldn't have it either. (I skip whole chapters in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series). But I learned my lesson with Book 6 "Beyond the Darkness"Beyond the Darkness (Guardians of Eternity, Book 6) when I had to go back and reread in order to catch up with what was happening with Caine...who is a bad guy? bad guy turned good guy? Well, we still can't really tell by the end of Book 7. There were a lot of characters to keep track of in this one between the new vamps, new bad guys, new types of demons, old vamps who are reintroduced (if you're a fan of the series, you'll want to make sure to read Ms. Ivy's short story in the "Yours for Eternity" collection Yours For Eternity). Of course I devoured this book (ok the pun was intended) in one day, so maybe it was just me.

I purchased the Kindle version (a bargain by the way!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A big theme of the Guardians of Eternity series, is that two imcompatible beings, be they Vampires, Jinns, Humans or Werewolves from opposite sides become enamored with each other. While they go about having fantastic adventures and often saving civilization from ultimate destruction, they fall in lust and in love. A running theme of the books is in the beginning the male is forced by circumstances to take the female prisoner.

It's fun to watch as the male character is completely bowled over by the force of his unexpected feelings and longings for the female. These are all great sexy yummy guys who have had centuries to practice their skilled love arts and fulfill their lusts with countless women. Of course, the main female characters are all wonderful and smart and capable of escape and occasionally taking off the head of an enemy, but they discover their heart has been captured even if they are free.

This is the 7th book and is about Tane the super sexy yummy Polynesian vampire and the half human half Jinn Laylah. She is hiding a treasure and is willing to do anything to protect it. Tane is a Charon, like a Texas Marshall. He is sworn to uphold the law and turn any half-breed Jinns over the Oracles for extermination. He's a super cop, who must follow the law. Ya can see problems he's going to have turning her over for execution huh?

Throw in the mix a nasty sadistic dominatrix vampire, a power crazed centuries old mage, and a reappearance of an old race of feys embroiled in a civil war bent on either saving and destroying the world, and you get a great novel. I loved the appearances of characters from the other books. The gargoyle Levet is charming and amusing and does his rescue the damsel, annoy the big bad vampire act.

Tane and Laylah's story was excellent. Alexandra allows the readers to catch up with most of the main characters especially my favourite Levet. He is adorable - a totally unique character and pop culture references continues in this book. Tane and Laylah are perfect for each other and the side storyline of what Laylah is hiding was an excellent addition. To se Styx and all the he man warriors falling in love with this litle thing was great.

I bought the Kindle edition but am now heading out to buy the paperback version as the editing on the Kindle frustrated me no end - carriage returns were missing on the dialogue making it frustrating for me to have to slow down and figure out who was saying what.....No fault of Alexandra just the format I think.

This book did not grab me as the previous guardians had. I expected another page turning adventure that did not deliver. As a previous reviewer stated, alot of new characters were introduced while side stories of previous character were written breaking up the flow of the book which was very distracting. I had to force myself to keep reading hoping the story would grab me in some way, unfortunately it didnt. The book seemd rushed as if it were written as a gateway to the next book. I havent given up on this series though, the preview of the next book looks promising!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Unable to elude her pursuer, Layla finally turns to face the 'leech' who has been on her tail for days. Tasked with capturing the woman who is an abomination due to her forbidden half-jinn heritage, vampire enforcer Tane inexplicably finds himself unable to carry out his duty to turn Layla over for execution. Instead Tane will make a wish and place himself in Layla's power in order to protect her while she fulfills a destiny which affects the fate of the entire world.

I really like Ivy's heroes, and like those who have come before him, Tane is dark, solitary, and deadly and has 'something' in his past but he isn't handicapped by it -I figure immortals should be able to get over it or get therapy. I also like how Tane spends a fair amount of time in denial about how important Layla truly is to him, even though he never denies his physical attraction to her. The only thing about Tane that worked less well for me was Ivy's physical description of Tane, the shoulder length Mohawk just didn't do it for me and what self-respecting vampire - and one who is a feared hunter of his own kind at that - has a wardrobe that consists solely of khaki shorts. I also like Layla too, she has the prerequisite stubbornness necessary to hold her own against an immortal alpha male, and yet is still vulnerable due to the funkiness of her powers and the isolation that her djinn blood has forced on her.

In addition to the Tane and Layla's story, Devoured by Darkness offers a few little peeks at Caine and Cassandra who met at the end of the last book. I wonder if they will eventually get their own story or if they will continue as just a side thread in coming books, either way I hope to see more of them and it is clear that Cassandra is going to make Caine earn his redemption.

I began my career in 2000 under the name Debbie Raleigh, writing traditional regencies and now as Deborah Raleigh writing regency historicals.

Moving to paranormals has been a dream since I watched my first episode of Buffy. I hope everyone enjoys the Guardians of Eternity series.
