From Publishers Weekly
Krysta Linz is a kick-butt vampire hunter whose world is taken for a sexy spin when she meets Immortal Guardian Étienne d'Alençon in Duvall's fast-paced and humorous latest paranormal (after Phantom Shadows). After receiving an education on the differences between vampires (bad guys) and Immortal Guardians (similar to vampires, but definitely good guys), Krysta is both intrigued and chastened as she realizes that her self-imposed task of eradicating all vampires is much bigger than she thought. In turn, Étienne is deeply fascinated by this small but gifted mortal who fights like a banshee. As they struggle to overcome their initial mutual distrust and fully acknowledge their growing attraction, Krysta's gifts play a larger role in the endless battle among Guardians, vampires, and a larger enemy. The plot occasionally gets mired in the confusing subplots, large cast, and setups for future books, but series fans will find it a strong installment. (Oct.)
"Duvall does an outstanding job building both a rich world and a compelling cast of characters."
~ RT Book Reviews
"Featuring a fascinating take on vampires, Darkness Rises is a thrilling, action-packed, suspenseful, funny, steamy paranormal romance readers won't be able to put down until the last page."
~ Affaire de Coeur Magazine
"Ms. Duvall brings together a rich world and a wonderful group of characters . . . I hope to see many more books in this series."
~ Night Owl Reviews
"Dianne Duvall has established herself as a star of the paranormal romance, and this book only solidifies her place in the pantheon. Not only is the love story at the center of this book wonderfully steamy and fulfilling, but the subplots and secondary characters kick this series into a whole new realm that will enchant fans from beginning to end."
~ The Romance Reviews
"Darkness Rises has more then met my expectations. This is a thrill ride from beginning to end and not to be missed."
~ Long and Short Reviews

I think I still love Richart more, but Etienne turned out to be uber sweet and I LOVED how perfect Krysta was for him. I didn't always feel all the chemistry, but part of that was because there was so much going on, that the love story was almost the background story. So that was a little disappointing, but at the same time I'm LOVING getting glimpses back into past characters, getting more time in Seth's head, and the build up for Zach's story is fascinating to me! So I guess I can't decide how I feel, b/c I LOVE the whole universe, but I almost wanted more chemistry between Etienne and Krysta to really believe how quickly they fell for one another.
I had questions about Sean and Krysta's parents, and how absent they were, and almost felt like the end was tacked on. But at the same time, I LOVED the closeness of Sean and Krysta, and the goofy moments between them. Krysta amused me to no end with her enthusiasm. I definitely laughed more in this one than in others.
So basically, I don't know what I'm saying. Still loving them, still excited about the next ones, just wanting a bit more coupledom balance. But I think Zach and Lisette's story is going to be AWESOME!!!
DR is loaded with all our favorite character and we meet a few new ones. Their is a lot of dangerous action and heart felt romantic scene. Their are even some funny scene with Sheldon one of the Immortal Guardians second.
I really enjoyed discovering more about Zach, who is now one of favorite male characters, along with Seth, David, Roland and Marcus. I like all the other but these 5 are my favorites. Ami is my favorite female character and none of the others come close to her. All of the secondary characters are very well developed with storylines of their own. The sad fact is one of our beloved Immortal Guardians has betrayed Seth and David and the Immortal Guardians bringing the Mercenary Soldiers back lead under the command of Donald and Nelson who we thought had been dealt with by Seth an David in bk 3 Phantom Shadows. Their back!! and only and Immortal Guardian could have bought them back.
The story is fast pasted and exciting. I Highly Recommend you read Darkness Rises. I would recommend you read the other books in the series first, so you can fully understand whats going on.
I can't wait to read more and for ppl to see Zach is like Bastien in a way,more good to him than I s obvious and sadly won't do himself justice by defending himself....
