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…

Fear the Darkness
(Thursday, July 12, 2012)
Reviewer: The Jeep Diva
Prophecies and the cryptic predictions that come with seers are a favorite element in books for me. The tension and speculation that is added to a book by this makes the pages fly by with anticipation. I have loved Cassandra from the moment she was introduced in this series. I loved the fact that she misunderstood many things due to her naiveté and taking things quite literally. Thus I have been looking forward to this book.
Caine was incredibly devoted to Cassandra. He did everything within his power to give her a sense of normalcy. He saw her as a woman, not the prophet. He also had an incredible patience with her and her naiveté. Caine is also a character that I have enjoyed reading since his introduction to the series. I like reading the bad guy who eventually sees the error of his ways and decides to make a positive change.
I need a love story in romance books I read. I want to be swept away in the chase as the hero and heroine find their way to their happily ever after. Cassie and Caine’s love story seemed to take a backseat as the Dark Lord got closer to crossing over from the hell dimension.
In my opinion at least half of Fear the Darkness focuses on past characters and the strengths they bring to the fight against the Dark Lord. Readers are also given a view from team Dark Lord and how they plan to free it from its prison and the reasons they are fighting for team Dark Lord. I always enjoy multiple perspectives, so the page time with Gaius was interesting.
The things that didn’t work for me: Caine is incapacitated for a ridiculous amount of time (this really took away from the romance,) I felt like I was reading a book focused more on the Dark Lord and its desire to escape its prison than a romance.
I did enjoy the book. I absolutely will continue the series. I’m curious what will happen with several of the characters, especially after what the end revealed. Ivy also introduced a yummy new vampire. I’m looking forward to her plans with him.
