Book Description

Created at the dawn of time to protect humanity, the ancient warriors have been nearly forgotten, though magic lives on--in vampires, werewolves, the Celtic Sidhe, and other beings. But now one of their own has turned rogue, and the world is again in desperate need of the IMMORTALS.

A werewolf and bounty hunter, Lexi was badass to the bone. She had no problem protecting herself in the seedy underground vampire clubs of New York City. Until the Immortal she had tried to summon actually appeared. It wasn't the intricate tattoos around his well-defined muscles that intimidated her; it was the raw power she saw shimmering in his golden brown eyes, power mingled with lust. Though she longed to give in to the passion and pleasure he promised, they first had a curse to break, a brother to find, and a whole legion of vampires to prevent from joining ...THE DARKENING.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great installment June 10, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm really enjoying this series. I am a huge Robin T Popp fan so I was really looking forward to this. The book was a fast read and very intense. However I did have a few problems with it. I didn't really feel the affection between the hero and herione. Plus I felt that she would have had sex with anyone and blamed her hormones due to the full moon. I can't say anymore without giving spoilers, but overall it was a good book.

The Immortals Series:

The Calling

The Darkening

The Awakening

The Gathering

The Redeeming (Tain's Story) September 2008

The Immortals series is a joint venture for three different authors. The first, fourth and fifth books are by Jennifer Ashley (AKA Allyson James). The second book is by Robin T. Popp, and the third by Joy Nash.

If you haven't read the first book, you really should before reading this one. It's a great story (I liked it more than this one.) and it sets the stage for the series.

If you have read it, you can skip this next paragraph:
The paranormal beings in this series are witches, demons, vampires, "The Immortals", and shapeshifters. "The Immortals" are five sons of the Celtic gods and goddesses. (Adrian, Darius, Kalen, Hunter, and Tain) They were created to protect the world from death magic. (Death magical beings include demons and vampires.) After several millennia, the Immortals have been all but forgotten. In the past, witches would chant "The Calling" spell to summon the Immortals for help whenever evil threatened. Those of the 5 whom are still fighting evil today, are doing so at their own leisure. Once these brothers realized that they could live in freedom, they each went their own way. They have not seen one another for hundreds of years.
The world of magic is divided between those who live in "life magic", and those who live in "death magic". Life magic lives in the Immortals, good witches, the Celtic gods/ goddesses, and shapeshifters. Death magic lives in demons and vampires. For millennia, they have battled. Now, some vampires are joining with the beings of life- magic to prevent demons from overtaking the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series January 28, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
: Immortals: The Darkening is book 2 of the fabulous Immortal series. Robin T. Popp has penned an action packed story for the Immortal Darius and a bounty hunting werewolf in heat named Lexi as they join the battle to stop an ancient demon and a rogue Immortal from ending the human race. Darius is forced to stay in his magical home of Ravenscroft because of his goddess mother, Sekhmet, and her overprotective interference by holding his life-force captured in an orb about her neck. Darius is determined to answer the Calling and destroys the orb, which returns his life-force to him but in a more vulnerable way. A spell is cast as he vanishes from Ravenscroft that creates complications for him on Earth as he finds out the reason for the Calling, Lexi's part in it and the uncontrollable passion between him and Lexi. Lexi is trying to help Darius get to his Immortal brother Adrian, which isn't easy with her being in heat, warring vampires, a leprechaun, and her wood nymph friend all becoming intertwined in the latest scheme by the powerful demon and the rogue Immortal.
Darius and Lexi will take you through the streets of New York as they attempt to stop the death magic from overcoming the life magic. Their relationship erupts from a build up of unleashed passion and untold feelings into an emotional experience that will touch your heart. The story's trail of intrigue flows endlessly throughout the plot with plenty of action and passion. Well developed and memorable characters will pull you into this exciting story and hold you captive to the climactic end. What comes next for the Immortals is now left to Joy Nash as she continues this series with Immortals: The Awakening. I recommend Immortals: The Darkening as a definite keeper for the excellent reading pleasure the Immortals are giving me and I look forward to the next Immortal story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Same great world, better story. September 1, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Second in the five book Immortal series (Yes, five. Ashley is writing Tain's story too) penned by three different authors, Robin Popp makes good use of the wonderful world they've created together. While this series doesn't have the heft of some of the other popular paranormals that the other reviewers are comparing it with, it is still entertaining. Since this installment doesn't bear the burden of introducing the world and the bad guys, the author is free to focus the story on Darius and Lexi.

Darius has been virtually locked in his room for 7 centuries. After being unable to answer the Calling at the end of the last book because his goddess mother is holding his immortal powers hostage, Darius chooses possible death to fulfill his duty to protect the earth and escapes his imprisonment. Unfortunately, the method of escape doesn't fully restore his powers making him more vulnerable than your typical immortal demigod. Also, Mom not willing to loss her son gives him a parting gift, she curses him to lose his memory if he experiences physical pleasure. Imagine how much fun that's going to make "the morning after". Even so he is a great hunky hero and an admirable one with the ability to turn honorable enemies into allies. The whole deal with his tatoos is very cool and inventive.

Lexi is a werewolf-witch bounty hunter. She is capable, independent, and while not immortal, Lexi is powerful. When Darius appears and helps her capture her latest "skip", Lexi knows exactly what Darius is since she had seen a vision of him during the Calling. Darius and Lexi's relationship is not smooth. Lexi is immediately attracted to the tall, gorgeous tatooed warrior, but tries to write off the attraction to full moon hormones.
