The Immortal Guardians is a series that you really need to read in order. Dianne does a little rehashing on key points as refreshers so you'll easily remember some of the details from the previous two books. Bastien started as in the first book Darkness Dawns a man who thought he was a vampire. He is hell bent on getting revenge against the Immortal's who he believed killed his sister. He is now within the network of immortals that are fighting the vampires and a new unforeseen foe.

Bastien may be one of the special gifted immortals, but he still feels like an outsider. His attitude towards his fellow immortals leaves him constantly at odds with them. He has been with them for two years and remains the black sheep. This is all around everyone's fault. His life among the vampires has him keeping himself on the outside. His lack of trust in people does not allow for them to see who he really is. (I absolutely loved his meltdown when he threw certain things at the bus!)

Melanie is one of the few people who don't harbor any animosity towards Bastien. She in fact is infatuated with him. The moment she finds that he shares the attracted with her leaves her with no choice but to pursue him. I loved the fact that every time he tries to push her away with the I'm not good enough for you excuse she not so subtly reminds him that she wants him, he wants her and that is all that matters.

The fight scenes (yes, a couple of big battles!) were intense, shocking, and amazing. They were overflowing with tons of kick ass. Readers got to see past books couples in the mix of the fights. We also got to learn more about the characters who have not gotten their own books.

I found myself giggling a lot with this book. I don't remember the others being quite this humorous.

This book is a work of art. There's so many amazing things that I loved about it that I don't even know where to start! Let's go simple and start with our stars. We meet Melanie briefly in book 2, but she really shines in this book. She's strong and brave for a human, and she's more than willing to stand up for who and what she believes in. Bastien is the villain from book 1, so naturally he's not exactly voted most popular with the Network or the Immortals, but we get to know a side of him that no one else seems even interested in glimpsing. They're compelling as individuals, but as a couple they're even more so.

I think what might be the most amazing part is that the book in no way felt long or drawn out, yet SO MUCH is incorporated into it. We see Bastien and Melanie's romance progress, we get a little insight into Richart, Etienne, and Lisette, revisit Ami a little, get more insight into Seth, and meet a new player Zach. That doesn't even include the conflict! The big bad is perhaps darker in this one than in the last two. Then, right as we're getting our pretty little bow at the end, a bomb of sorts is dropped. OMG. And she does all this without leaving the reader lost or confused or let down in any way, ever.

Dianne doesn't usually end the books on a cliff hanger, though she will leave you with something that makes you want more, but this time she leaves you aching, screaming for the next installment! She's an absolute artist. The mystery she builds is just masterful, both long term and short term. The fight scenes are perfect, because she includes you and keeps you riveted, but without bogging you down with excessive details. With these abilities, she's woven a very powerful tale.

I love this series and Phantom Shadows was another great one. Not only did I like the story with Bastien and Melanie but I like the family the Immortal Guardians have created for themselves. Would love to see books for David, Seth, Richart, etc. Great series! Keep writing!

Phantom Shadows is book 3 in the the Immortal Guardian series, featuring Bastian an Melanie. Their was not enough love and romance in the story between Bastian and Melanie. They were together a lot, but mostly they were attacked in some way by vampires or the human mercenaries who were out to destroy them and poor Melanie was always severely hurt. The few love scenes were OK. Also I didn't like the fact toward the end when Melanie had to be converted to Immortal to survive, it was done by Bastian's arch enemy Roland.I feel it is more romantic when one or the other involved in the love relationship does the conversion. Their are some very good fight scenes with the good guys the Immortal's whipping the crap out of the Bad guys the Vampires and the Human mercenaries. Unforutanely their are some very gory scenes with torture of men women and children that dragged the story down for me. Their is one scene were 9 vampires had tortured and abused a young mother and her newborn baby. Sometime I don't think author's differentiate between paranormal and horror. Phantom Shadows for me was borderline horror. But very well written, which is why I gave the book 4 stars instead of 3. Ms. Duvall really had my attention to the point when my kindle froze at 50% read I went out the next day and bought the book on paperback. Unfortunately for me it was before I read the horror scenes. Anyway, people who like horror scenes will love this book. For me it was just OK.
