Fear the Darkness is the ninth book in The Guardians of Eternity series. Cassie, a were, is the only known prophet. Caine was once a cur but was transformed into a full blooded were. He has taken the role of protector, but his feelings for Cassie go beyond duty.
I absolutely loved Cassie and Caine together. She has basically been held a prisoner her whole life. She is naïve in some ways, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Caine is seeking redemption for his past mistakes, and wants to do the honorable thing by fighting his attraction to Cassie. I am so happy that it wasn’t a long fight because the chemistry between them sizzles before they even touch. As much as I enjoyed seeing the relationship between Cassie and Caine unfold I was just as happy to see some of my favorite characters return, as well as a couple of new ones. The story began with my two favorite characters, Styx and Viper. I could be entertained for hours just reading the banter between these two! There was a new vampire that came to Styx’s aid, named Roke. We really didn’t get a lot of information on him, but there are indications we haven’t seen the last of him.
The Guardians are trying to eradicate the Dark Lord, which leads to a really suspenseful read. I have followed this series from the beginning and I enjoy Ivy’s writing. This latest book was full of action, and for the most part it moved at a good pace. I do wish the story would have been a little heavier on the romance, but I understand why the book was written like it was; Fear the Darkness really lent some closure to Bound to Darkness.
Fear the Darkness wasn’t my favorite book in the series, but I still enjoyed the read. I wouldn’t hesitate in reading future books, and I would certainly recommend the series to fans of the paranormal romance genre.
The Guardians of Eternity are embroiled in an epic battle for survival. They are as dangerous as they are sensual–and their lustful appetites are legendary. . .
Her Visions Lead Her To Danger
Beautiful Cassandra is a Were, a prophet both vulnerable and defiant, blessed with visions that portend the fate of the world. A rare and delicate creature, Cassie must be protected at all costs. Enter Caine, a powerful cur turned pureblooded Were whose recent tangles with a demon lord have left him in serious need of redemption. Caine is duty-bound to keep Cassie out of danger–and that means resisting his potent urge to seduce her. . .
And Only He Can Save Her
As Cassie’s mysterious visions lead them in and out of danger, Caine believes he has found his true mate, the woman with whom he is bound for all eternity. Cassie is both charmed and frightened by Caine’s magnetism, and unsure if he–or her feelings for him–can be trusted. But Cassie can’t afford to doubt Caine now. A deadly enemy bent on destruction is closer than they realize–and only they can keep chaos from ruling the world. . .
