    A pretty good installment in Alexandra Ivy's Guardians of Eternity series. This one features the vampire, Santiago, who runs one of Viper's infamous demon clubs, paired with legendary vampire clan chief, Nefri. It's the first vampire/vampire pairing in the series.

This one features the vampire, Santiago, who runs one of Viper's infamous demon clubs, paired with legendary vampire clan chief, Nefri. It's the first vampire/vampire pairing in the series. Overall, Santiago and Nefri are good together. She's all beautiful icy reserve and he's all arrogant, smoldering hotness. They run around the Midwest in search of Santiago's sire, the vampire Gaius, who survived the last book and is about to unleash some new apocalypse. The book did feel a bit disconnected from the rest of the series as really only Styxx, Viper, Jagr, and Levet make appearances in the story. No Salvatore, no Harley, no Darcy, or any of the other were, vampire, fae, or djinn characters which was a bit disappointing, especially since Styxx had a large part so Darcy in particular being left out felt odd. In all honesty, Santiago and Nefri aren't hugely memorable characters and the Big Evil isn't all that terribly interesting. The whole story is a bit anticlimactic, following Cain and Cassandra's book, in which the Dark Lord was finally defeated (and which was also a reunion book with all of our favorite characters appearing throughout and aiding in the big battle at the end). But, Santiago and Nefri pull out a victory and find their HEA in a satisfying manner. The much, much more interesting part of the book was the substantial secondary storyline given to Roke, clan chief of Nevada, ordered by Styxx to hang around Chicago, and he does so in delicious bad temper, managing to irritate, intrigue, and interfere with a cute, powerful, little witch who is an unhappy resident of Styxx's dungeon. I don't want to spoil the identity of the witch but the set up of her relationship with Roke, given substantial page time in this book, left me eager to read their story and really made Darkness Avenged much more fun than it otherwise would have been.

I was loving our main characters Santiago and Nefri. but to have Sally and Roke as the second story was brilliant., I loved how it all connected and we saw some beloved passed characters. This story had me on the edge of my seat, and it was really intense, as them hot sex scenes! With it being book 10 and me not having read book 9 since forever ago i thought I would have been lost and I am so happy I wasn't. I am dying to jump into book 11 with Roke and Sally. Sucks though that it is not in audio! I love that they all found there mates, and i just really enjoyed this instalment. Its way to hard to even explain this series as a whole. TBH its easier for you to go hunt book 1 down and start from there.

    Alex has squeezed so much awesome into this installment of her Guardians of Eternity series. It almost feels like two books in one. Readers are not only introduced to what I am assuming is the couple for the next book, but we are given an amazing amount of page time with that couple. I have to say I cannot wait to read their book. They are already intense. Their book is going to be out of this world! As for the main couple for Darkness Avenged I enjoyed them in Fear the Darkness so continuing Ne Alex has squeezed so much awesome into this installment of her Guardians of Eternity series. It almost feels like two books in one. Readers are not only introduced to what I am assuming is the couple for the next book, but we are given an amazing amount of page time with that couple. I have to say I cannot wait to read their book. They are already intense. Their book is going to be out of this world! As for the main couple for Darkness Avenged I enjoyed them in Fear the Darkness so continuing Nefri and Santiago’s story was a pleasure. Santiago to Nefri, “Oh, I haven’t even started my mauling. This is only a small taste of my pre-maul.” Hello sexy alpha male that any woman would swoon into a puddle over. Santiago is a man that when he sees something that he wants he takes it. He doesn’t ask he just takes. In his long life he has grown used to getting exactly what he wants when he wants, except when it comes to Nefri. Nefri is not a woman that one just takes though. She is a powerful ancient that all kowtow to without question. Santiago luckily has enough sense to recognize her for who she is, but everything that makes him male also makes him notice who she is to him. Nefri to Santiago, “Your lack of manners is only exceeded by you complete arrogance.” Nefri has an intriguing history that once revealed answers so many questions about her and many of the Veil questions. Nefri is an alpha in her own right. She has accomplished things in her life that no other vampire ever will. The combination of that her time behind the Veil has left her different, changed, evolved, there are so many different labels that one can give her. Her request to the Commission to take her clan beyond the Veil makes so much sense. The Commission’s reason for the Veil is a whole new drama that added an immense amount of excitement to the book. The Oracle Siljar tasks Nefri with the same job that Styx sends Santiago on. For the most part it is a clean-up job that has a derailment side job. It is 100% adventure. They have no desire to work together. The sexual tension is palpable. They want each other so badly they figure distance is the only way to prevent the inevitable. Their story is definitely at towards the top of favorites for the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire witch (trying to be vague and spoiler free) side story and cannot wait to read more of that! From what I read it will be a heavy thread in the next book. The character involved is fascinating and the history is already lining up to be explosive. The paperback ARC I received of Darkness Avenged has the Levet novella in it. I do not know if the retail mass market paperbacks will be the same, but it is definitely something to look into. If anything it would save you $2 if you were planning on buying both of the books anyhow. The Guardians of Eternity series needs to be read in order from the beginning to get the most enjoyment out of it!

Styx shows up and tells Santiago that he needs him to use his bond to track down his sire, Gauis. Reluctantly, Santiago agrees.

Santiago wants to imprint himself on Nefri so she can never leave him again but an ancient imprisoned evil has escaped and threatens the world. Meanwhile, Sandy (Gaius's witch) has turned herself over to Styx. Scared for her life and the madness eating at Gaius, it was an act of self preservation. Styx locks her in his dungeon. Discovering Gaius is on the loose and infecting others with his madness, Sandy attempts to “influence” Roke (her vampire guard) to help her escape...and it works. But it also forms an unbreakable bond, a bond that shouldn't even be possible. Fate finds a way, leading Sandy and Roke to a discovery that could save them all. This was another fabulous adventure in the Guardians of Eternity series. Hot and spicy romance, fantastic witty banter, strong and tenacious females and incredibly sexy alphas take this wonderful story to extraordinary. Still going strong at book 10 in this series, I am anxiously awaiting the full Sandy and Roke story.

Not only do we get Santiago and Nefri, but AIvy does an amazing job foreshadowing/setting us up for our next couple, Sally & Roke. I loved having two couples in this novel. The twists and surprises kept me glued to the pages. Levet is also back and his usually self. I was also fascinated by the Oracle and evil plot that is in this story. Darkness Avenged is a fabulous read in the Guardians of Eternity series. I could not put it down and had to pick up the next book, Hunt the Darkness, just to learn about our next couple. So good! I highly recommend this book and series! Each book can be read as a standalone.

The problem is that as I read so many books with different plots and characters etc I find it impossible to retain all that information in my little grey cells and Darkness Avenged picks up directly after the end of Fear The Darkness. If I had known that I would have waited until I could have read them back-to-back but once I realised I should have just read Fear The Darkness again before starting this one and I would have probably sailed through. Once I gave in and stopped flicking back and forth I actually found I was really enjoying the story as it was well written and did flow easily. This series was one of the very first that I read when I discovered this genre and Ms Ivy continues to be one of my favourites.

    We finally get Santiago and Nefri story! Nefri is a Clan Chief who is ancient and a legend among the vampires. She was quite an interesting character. She is powerful, strong, can kick-ass but only wants peace. Santiago is the perfect mate for Nefri. He crashes down her walls and makes her feel like a woman again. He isn't afraid or awed by her powers and legend. He sees the real Nefri. I loved the romance and courtship between these two.

I really enjoyed the book despite the fact that not many of the previous characters made an appearance except of Styx, Viper and of course, Levet, who was present in too many scenes and as always managed to irritate Santiago and charm Nefri. What I loved, was the secondary story of Roke and Sally, a witch previously seen in Fear the Darkness.I loved their story and I can't wait to read the continuity. All in all, I loved the book and I highly recommend it.I hope the next book wil be about Roke and Sally.... First posted on: http://sofialovesreading.blogspot.gr/...

It was great! I've been a GUARDIANS OF ETERNITY fan since the very beginning, & like any long running series, there comes a time where the books start to feel like filler. I was getting a bit worried about that with this series because while I was still enjoying the books, they didn't keep me reading til all hours of the morning and ignoring everything else around me like they had...until this one! :) I've always been a fan of Dante and Viper in the series, but was immediately drawn to Santiago when he was introduced way back in the series. He's one of those uber confident, semi-cocky, sexy as sin alpha males that you just can't help but fall for. Nefri is a very confident and strong female as well, and her story is intriguing to say the least - she's an Ancient and has been behind the Veil for longer than Santiago has been alive and undead. When the two are paired together by the Commission to hunt down Santiago's sire as he wreaks havoc on the world, things get incredibly interesting... in SO many ways. The things revealed in this book were so intense. It's any GUARDIANS OF ETERNITY fans' dream. I loved this book and easily give it 5 Skulls. I do not recommend that readers jump into this book if they have not read the other books of the series though, there's just too much history. Outside of that, HIGHLY recommended.

    After the defeat of the Dark Lord in the previous instalment you would think that the Guardians of Eternity would have earned some down time. But no, because another evil entity has inhabited the mind of the traitorous vampire Gaius from beyond the Veil. Several characters are involved in the search, the featured couple Santiago and the legendary Nefri, the Anasso, Styx, the reluctant Roke who is accidently mated to the witch, Sally Grace and of course our favourite gargoyle Levett and the love After the defeat of the Dark Lord in the previous instalment you would think that the Guardians of Eternity would have earned some down time. But no, because another evil entity has inhabited the mind of the traitorous vampire Gaius from beyond the Veil. Several characters are involved in the search, the featured couple Santiago and the legendary Nefri, the Anasso, Styx, the reluctant Roke who is accidently mated to the witch, Sally Grace and of course our favourite gargoyle Levett and the love of his life, Yannah. What transpires is a fun adventure as the Guardians have to employ all their skills to deal with an entity that may be the Creator of all Vampires and so not destroying themselves in the process! For number ten in a series which for all intents and purposes had finished the original story arc this was a pretty good read. Although the HEA of Santiago and Nefri fell a little flat this was complemented with the development of the upcoming story of Roke and Sally Grace which promises to be a fiery encounter. Of course, the comic relief of Levett the gargoyle who is the bane of the vampire male's lives and his quips really add to the enjoyment of this series. Some of his one liners had me literally LOL... (I got the mammogram (instead of I got the Memo) and Farts before Tarts (Bros before Hos )were just some of the Levett classics. An enjoyable, fun read and the next book with Sally and Roke promises more of the same.

There's action, adventure, a ton of violence and "mauling," which leads to awesome bedroom scenes. Why you should read it: For those of you who swoon for a dominant hero but hate weak heroines, you'll have no problem here. Nefri is ancient and powerful in her own right and it makes the banter and energy between hero and heroine a palpable thing. While I haven't read every single Guardian book, I have read enough to understand the underlying plot and have been waiting for Santiago. Fans of the series and newbies alike will melt for Santiago and enjoy Nefri immensely. To read more check out the HEA Blog http://www.usatoday.com/story/happyev...

    My least favorite of the series but still a good book. I think my main issue with the book was that I have been reading about them in other books for way too long and lost interest. I was also really, really disappointed with Nefri. I mean, here you have one of the oldest, most powerful creatures in the world and she was the biggest bore ever written in this series!

Another issue for me was that none of the previous characters make an appearance in this book except for Styxx and Viper (for a microsecond). What's up with that?! For me, the only thing that saved this book and made it possible for me to actually finish it (yes, it was that boring), was the side story of Roke and Sally. It kept me going when all I wanted to do was put the book down for good. I can't wait for the next book!!!

    While not my favourite book in the series I did enjoy it. I love it when Alex broadens the supe types a wee bit it always adds a little something to the story. Levet was as entertaining as ever and the tiny little glimpse of Jagr was just to tiny for me! :)

    The Dark Lord is dead, so there may be some peace for a while. But then Styx and Santiago find out Gaius is still alive, not in his right mind and hiding something. Something horrible. Two romances going on (well, three if you want to include Levet and Yannah’s ongoing odd relationship). The main one is Santiago and Nefri. After the battle, she left to hide away behind the Veil, but the Oracles ordered her to look into the possibility that Gaius didn’t die in the battle.

Interesting to see how that goes. I loved this book. Going to be one of my faves of the series. Very exciting and different. I also enjoyed the introduction of and interaction with the harpies. They’re a lot more organized and interesting than those I’ve read about before. Hope I get to see more of them. There is a bit of what you could call a cliff hanger but only because it leads into the ongoing relationship problems of Sally and Roke continued in the next book. Fave scenes: Sally’s meal order, visiting the Hall of Records, scorched peaches and Gaius’s awful decision.

    The last couple of books (including this one) haven't been quite typical One of the things that I've enjoyed about this series is that the main characters in each book get their HEA by the end of the book. But lately, those anticipated HEAs have been taking two books to resolve. Santiago (who didn't get his HEA in the last book), did finally get his. But Roke and Sally (the MCs of this book), didn't as yet.

But Roke and Sally (the MCs of this book), didn't as yet. It's becoming the Author's way of making sure you're invested enough in the characters to grab the next book. I can't say that I like it. I prefer to purchase the next book because I'm enjoying the series--not because I'm left hanging for that Hero's HEA.I That being said, I enjoyed Santiago getting his powerful mate (yes, more powerful than him...gotta love that). I am also eager to see how Roke will get his. Even though I have to buy the next book to find out. But I'm not happy about this new two-book/HEA scenarios. Just saying...

    Like I have said many times, but it bares repeating.. these are just really goof fluff books. They are all about the overly sexual male that's all protective and He-Manesq.. Then you have the tough as nails females that normally don't like domineering males, but finds this attractive all of a sudden, then BAM! Mated for life. The reason I like these books? They don't try to be anything other then what they are. If I have read some intense stuff, I like picking up one of these to clear out the cob Like I have said many times, but it bares repeating.. these are just really goof fluff books.

They are quick reads, I can usually finish a book in about 2 hours or less. And the truth is Ms. Ivy is a damn good writer. This book is about Santiago and Nefri and their bonding story. Their are several other prior couples talked about through out the book and the set up for the next book with a new couple.

    Darkness Avenged It took quite awhile to get thru this. I read 2 other books while reading this, which speaks volumes. It was boring. I didn't feel a connection with Nefri or Santiago. It was her turning into someone else that I really felt how much he loved her. I was much more interested in Sally and Roke because of the angst,mystery,and forced mating. Roke is grumpy because he wants to go home but has to babysit a witch - when he hates them and magic. Sally doesn't know what she is,just that h Darkness Avenged It took quite awhile to get thru this. I read 2 other books while reading this, which speaks volumes. It was boring.

Even Levet's appearance didn't help this bore. Oh well, on to Roke and Sally Hunt the Darkness.

    Once again this book was a good combination of sweet, hot, dramatic and funny. The only reason I did give a better rating was because I was beginning to feel a little BDB-ish where every single chapter is someone else’s story. I’ve waited so long for Santiago and Nefri’s story, yet only about 1/3 of the book was about them. Now I hardly feel the need to read Roke and Sally’s book next since they were 1/3 of this book. Lord have mercy. Santiago and Nefri were in no way a letdown. Just all the oth Once again this book was a good combination of sweet, hot, dramatic and funny.

    I really liked Roke and Sally's intro story. That would have been a 5 star book. The rest of the book is as a nice adventure. Santiago and Nefri just didn't do it for me.

    REVIEW: Darkness Avenged is the tenth storyline in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity and oh, what a ride. There are three overlapping storylines that culminate in a final scene where the major players all seek retribution against the one vampire who has betrayed them all. At the end of Fear the Darkness, the Dark Lord had been destroyed and the tortured vampire Gaius had escaped through the Veil in search of someone long thought dead. The main storyline focuses on vampires Santiago and Nefri. REVIEW: Darkness Avenged is the tenth storyline in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity and oh, what a ride. There are three overlapping storylines that culminate in a final scene where the major players all seek retribution against the one vampire who has betrayed them all. At the end of Fear the Darkness, the Dark Lord had been destroyed and the tortured vampire Gaius had escaped through the Veil in search of someone long thought dead. The main storyline focuses on vampires Santiago and Nefri. Nefri has been ordered by The Commission to locate Gaius. Gaius for all intents and purposes is lost to this world but he is also Santiago’s sire. Santiago is the one person who will be able to locate the missing vampire-presumed taken to the afterlife when the Dark Lord was defeated. Having come through the Veil a mere shadow of his former self, Gaius is lost to a darker power when he is promised the return of his beloved and long dead mate. When Santiago discovers it is Nefri who must hunt down Gaius for The Commission, he decrees himself guardian of the beautiful and enigmatic Clan Chief as she endeavors to locate the missing vampire who is wreaking havoc on the emotions of everyone and everything. Secondary to Santiago and Nefri’s story, Chicago Vampire Clan Chief Roke suddenly finds himself enchanted by the little witch Sally as she is held prisoner at Styx’s estate. As the King of the vampires, Styx knows that Sally was once a trusted friend and companion of Gaius, and both, at one time, lived behind the veil. Styx needs to know what has happened to the man he once called a friend and Sally is the ticket to that information. But Sally refuses to reveal the information in fear that the more sinister side of Gaius takes his revenge. The others will soon learn that Sally is much more than a witch when she is able to break through the vampire King’s warded estate to discover the truth to her witch heritage and powerful legacy. Thirdly, part of the storyline focuses on Gaius-a vampire so tortured by the Dark Lord, that he was willing to give up his soul to see his beloved mate one last time. This particular part of the storyline followed Gaius as he struggled with the illusion that all would be right in his world once his mate was brought back from the dead. Gaius is no longer the strong and beautiful vampire, but a mere puppet possessed by something much stronger and much older than anyone thought possible. We have followed Gaius throughout the series-cried when he lost his mate: heartbroken when he pledged himself to the Dark Lord: and defeated when we realized there was no turning back for the once brave and powerful vampire. All three storylines will cross paths as Gaius brings everyone together for a final showdown in a warehouse where a powerful magic must be contained. When the source of everything evil is finally revealed, one vampire will be dust, another will go in search of his missing mate, and still another will retreat to the other side of the Veil to start a life with his family and new love. The relationship between Santiago and Nefri is fraught with the usual tug of attraction between two souls meant to be together. Their sexual encounters are both loving and hot, and you know that together they will make a formidable pair. As a powerful Clan Chief, Nefri is held in high esteem and worshipped by many who have heard about her powers. It will take a strong vampire, sure in himself, to become consort and mate to such a powerful Chief. DARKNESS AVENGED is an exciting storyline that answers many of the questions building in the previous books and novels. Alexandra smoothly blends three parallel stories into one imaginative narration of good vs evil, heartbreak and sorrow, love and lost. With her amazing cast of familiar characters readers will feel at home in Darkness Avenged. If you are a fan of Alexandra’s GUARDIANS OF ETERNITY, Darkness Avenged is a must read. There is NO WAY you can skip this installment. see all of my reviews at :thereadingcafe.com

    Vampire demon romance I liked the book. Obviously part of a series. Interesting read. Another story is started in this book and that story is left on a cliffhanger but the original story has a satisfying ending.
