Review

Romantic Times Book Reviews:  "This well-written, action-packed novel will keep readers entertained from start to finish. A compelling page-turner."

CataNetwork reviewers present Linda Thomas-Sundstrom with the prestigious CataRomance Reviewer's award for 2012 for Guardian of the Night.

Genre Go Round Reviews: "The latest Vampire Moons romantic urban fantasy is a thrilling entry. Readers will relish this well written thriller as a werewolf and a vampire commit seemingly the worst sin possible by falling in love."

From the Author

"Guardian of the Night" is the story of one of my seven Blood Knights from time long passed, as we catch up with him in the current century.
The book treads on the edges of world first glimpsed in Golden Vampire... giving us a race of beings that are so much more than vampires, and light-years away from the humans they now and then come into contact with... Until they meet their match in the feisty women of the twenty-first century who are just as dedicated to their work as these immortals are. Tied to a vow, noble to the end, gorgeous immortals like Mason LanVal just might melt your heart (and Faith James's heart) in the end.

Welcome to the world of my series, "Vampire Moons." I  hope you enjoy the time you spend here.
Linda

A sense of duty and fervent longing constantly battle each other in the second Nocturne book for the Vampire Moons series, where vows broken by an immortal with knightly principles could have enormous consequences. Linda Thomas-Sundstrom has created a fascinating account of events entangling the lives of vampires, werewolves and unsuspecting humans.

When Faith James came to France to locate her sister who mysteriously disappeared, she is told to get in touch with Mason LanVal. On her way to his home, she is hurt and the person who comes to her aid is Mason. He feels there is no way to save her unless she receives a drop of his blood, but this goes against the guidelines he has abided by for many years. As a Guardian, the immortal must help keep the vampire bloodline untainted by not letting any vampire share their blood with another. Yet, an additional vow is to keep the innocent safe, and this justification has him giving her just a tiny part of himself.

Although Faith only received a very small amount of Mason's blood, the connection between them is immediate and the effect seems to unexpectedly linger. While she continues looking for any information about her sister, she discovers facts about her own background that are staggering. Faith learns of her Lycan heritage, and this is just another reason Mason knows he can never truly be a part of her life, even though the magnetism is often intense. As they fight the relentless attraction, nearby blood-sucking vampires are making their own plans.

The innovative storyline crafted by Linda Thomas-Sundstrom for the Vampire Moons series is imaginatively noteworthy.

There are two things I'm a sucker for: vampires and romances. Put them together in one book and it's likely I'm going to love it, so when I had the chance to read Linda Thomas-Sundstrom's Guardian of the Night (fourth in her series of full-length novels and novellas) through NetGalley, I jumped at the chance.

Faith James is a newly minted surgeon with a younger sister, Hope, she's raised since the two were orphaned when Faith was 20. When Hope disappears during a tour of France, Faith takes off to find her, with the name of a reclusive man who's had some success in finding missing people: Mason LanVal. LanVal, however, isn't exactly human, although he isn't exactly a vampire as we know them, and his legend ties into Arthurian legend, which should have had me at Holy Grail.

Faith gets caught in a trap (literally), and LanVal takes her to the only place he knows she will get the care to save her life: the Weres. Naturally, Faith isn't exactly human herself (trope: latent supernatural abilities activate!) and we learn that LanVal and Faith's attraction (trope: insta-love, my least favorite) is forbidden on so many levels you may need a scorecard.

Still, there could have been a great story here: forbidden love, sister lost in the forest, a force for good gone bad (this is why LanVal was in the forest to find Faith in the first place, ostensibly), but for the unedited over-writing. There is so much repetition here that I felt like most of the main characters' interactions with each other were really in their own internal monologues. Oh, woe is me! I can't be with her because... Then LanVal would devolve into a rehash of his past, how he got to where he is, and everything about the story so far. Or Faith would be all Woe! Where could he be? Why is he not with me?

This is a second book in Blood Knight series, actually it's from Vampire Moons series, but my hope is that we would have this series as Blood Knight and go and have books for all seven of them. All the knights :)

I fell in love with the story with the first book "Golden Vampire" and this book made me love the series even more. I wouldn't recommend Guardian of the Night for someone who is looking for a light and easy read. This man, Guardian is going through some deep thoughts and searching deep in his soul what he wants from life, what is the real purpose of his existence. He faced huge disappointment that could make him lose his ground, lose himself altogether. Almost to the end I wasn't sure if we would have a happy ending. I can't express how much I love this book, how much I enjoyed reading it. Linda you did an amazing job and my only question is when is the next one coming out?

4STARS Guardian of the Night has werewolves,werehunters, vampires and one of seven Guardians that are part vampire but stronger they were made to destroy vampires and keep thier blood pure. Faith James from Florida has come to France to find her sister that left her tour bus in the wilds of France. She crashes her car when she sees her sister and chases after her. She finds a animal trap that broke the bones and cut deep into her leg. She uses her shirt as a bandage to slow the bleeding. She knows she is in serious trouble because she is surgeon. Mason LanVal finds her and knows that others will be coming for her. He is undecided how best to help her and keep others from looking closely at him. he takes her to her car but realizes that he can't use it to take her to hospital. He can give her a drop of his blood that it would heal her but years ago he comitted to keep from giving his blood to humans. He realizes that she is not fully human and maybe that will protect him with his vows. He was a Knight long time ago and was invited to a castle and given a quest. To become like a vampire to stop vampires from spreading. They chose seven Knights these three vampires that lived in the castle. They only fed from each other and will end thier life after the seven are made. They put some of thier blood in the Challace and drink from it. Causing thier death and by the power of the Challace awake reborn. One of the seven was to take the challace and hide it from everyone else because of its vast powers. He can destroy the vampires in this area he has done it before but he belives that one of the seven guardians did not keep thier vows and he is waiting for him to show up and then get rid of them.Read more ›
