Shadows Strike (Immortal Guardians #6) by Dianne Duvall

Shadows StrikeSynopsis:

The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out…

U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.

Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive…

My thoughts:

I picked this book up at Netgally, again not knowing it is a series and it is the 6th one, I really need to research better before jumping on books because they sound good :p

While it seems like the books are always about different couples, it seems to have a big story arc being told. Also it seemed like every other character had a play in this book.

It might have been less confusing if I would have read the previous books. Which by the way I think I will.

I really enjoyed the idea and concept of the Vampires, Immortals and Guardians and the human with special abilities. While the book at times was a little confusing to me, more often than not because of all the characters, and there are a lot of them.I really did enjoy it. It had action, snarky humor, sexy times and plenty of suspense and twists in it.

I really enjoyed Ethan, he was rather charming and old school at time yet modern and deadly.  Heather was great to, I liked her wit and how well she adapts to things happening around her and to her.    

While most know, that I’m not a fan of insta-love or lust, it did make kind of sense in this book , at least from Heather’s POV with her dreams , that were not really dreams, or were they 😉

Overall, I thought it was a great book, even if I had times being a little lost.

I could have been more but like I said I was sometimes confused but that rating might change when I read the other books and am more familiar with all the characters. By the way , this book has A LOT of characters, Im sire at one point it had at least 20-25 at the acme time when they had a meeting. That is a lot of people to keep track of.

I rate it at 3 ½★
