Review: Blade of Darkness (Immortal Guardians #7) by Dianne Duvall

Dana Pembroke has been able to glimpse the future of those she touches for as long as she can remember. But she never saw Aidan coming. When the tall, dark Celt with the charming grin yet world-weary eyes walks through her door, the future she sees for him is one full of violence, danger, deception... and passion. Because amidst the terrifying battles that unfold in her visions, she also sees herself in Aidan's arms and in his bed. Dana knows she should keep her distance, but the tender moments and laughter they share entice her even as she finds herself thrust into a world of vampires, immortals, and other preternatural beings.

Immortal Guardian Aidan O'Byrne has been hunting and slaying psychotic vampires for nearly three thousand years, so visions of bloody battles don't trouble him. The battles Dana foresees, however, show Aidan's brethren turning against him, so he can't help but feel alarmed. While he spends as much time as he can with Dana, struggling to decipher her dire predictions, Aidan finds himself utterly smitten. Hope rises that he has finally found a woman who can banish the darkness and loneliness that plague him. But when vampires begin targeting Dana and a powerful enemy spawns chaos, will fate grant them time to find happiness together?

Remember Aidan? He’s the Immortal Guardian that broke into Chris Reordon’s headquarters to steal a list of female gifted ones. Aidan is lonely. He’s been lonely for nearly three thousand years. That’s okay though. He has a plan to put that to all to an end. He wants to find a gifted one and turn her into an immortal so that his next several thousand years won’t be so lonely. He even goes through the trouble of creating chance meetings with the ladies on the list. I mean seriously this sexy Scot wants to woo and court a lass. There’s so much awesomeness to love there.

An immortal walks into the fortune teller’s parlor. No it’s the beginning of a bad joke. This is how Aidan meets (begins his wooing) Dana. Dana has enough control over her very powerful gift that she earns an income by looking into people’s past, present, and future. What she never saw coming was the sexy man who believes in her gift. He doesn’t mock her. He doesn’t show any skepticism in what she tells him she sees. And Dana sees plenty when it comes to Aidan. She sees him fighting feverishly with swords and other men who fight back just as zealously. She sees herself with him in moments of passion. Most importantly Dana sees the charming man he truly is.

This is the Immortal Guardians world and Aidan will not have an easy path to happily ever after with Dana. Gershom is still up to no good and he has figured out a new trick that puts Aidan in the center of much of the trouble. Readers are given page time with past couples that hold places as favorite book characters. I’m sure Dana will earn one of these spots for many. Dana gives Roland hell and it’s kind of amazing. She doesn’t cut Seth too much slack either.

My lone complaint is that the ending felt a little anticlimactic. Several of the books in Duval’s Immortal Guardians series have had these huge epic battle scenes. Blade of Darkness has its needed conflict but it was resolved in a way that leaves more conflict from the unresolved to come in future books. As for future books a couple new immortals were mentioned but nothing for a hint as to who will get the next book.
