This was a nice edition to the overall story arc of the Guardians of Eternity series. You can certainly read this installment as a stand alone, but I recommend getting the full saga experience! I've been reading about this world of paranormal creatures since book hit the shelves and it's been a very enjoyable ride ever since.
Being held against her will, and forced to make a baby with a dude against her will, Kata has been living locked away for a really long time. Though she makes comments about keeping up with the culture and changes in the world, it's a little hard to belive since she's being kept in hellish conditions, but satellite dishes and internet connections aside (gods I hope she didnt have to deal with dialup!), Kata's ready to get out of her prison and reunite with her long lost daughter.
Just when you think she'll never break free, her vampire in moonlight armor comes crashing into the scene and whisking her off her feet. He's overbearing and bossy, as most males in this saga are, but you love him for laying it all on the line to protect the woman his heart has decided to mate with. Yes, it's love and mating at first sight!
Soon, these two and getting down and dirty in the moments they have peace before all hell's going to break wide open. Hey, I've known you for about and hour, your hot and I've been celibate for about 200 years. Let's get this going! And they do!
Through some trails and tribulations this pair set out to find their way in an ever changing dimension. Someones playing love doctor but they may be getting these two killed for real. It's all in the name of love and I enjoyed just about all of this book quiet a bit. Though if I had to nitpick, the word "bitch" is thrown around a few too many times, a tad unnecessary by the end. I was overall happy with this tale of love and finding that hope at the end of the tunnel.
Ivy fans will enjoy this one and new readers can dig their claws in and get a nice taste of the saga that is Guardians of Eternity!

About the Author:
Like most writers, I was born with an avid love for reading. Growing up in a small town in the Midwest, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hand or wasn’t dreaming up wild stories in my head. And when I stepped into my local library for the first time I thought it was paradise. There were so many books on the shelves I didn’t know where to start!
Still, I didn’t plan to grow up and become a writer. I was much more interested in a glorious career as an actress on Broadway.
I followed my dream by acquiring a degree in theatre and performing for several years in summer-stock productions, but after I married my college sweetheart I decided to put the career on hold while we started a family. After the arrival of my two sons, Chance and Alex, I found myself seeking a new creative outlet and decided to turn my occasional scribblings into a genuine effort to get published.
I’d like to say that I was an overnight success, but the truth is that it took years before I finally got ‘the call’. The rejections were painful, but now I’m relieved. All those manuscripts that I thought were the next Great American Novel are now exactly where they belong…gathering dust under my bed.
They did, however, help me learn my craft, and just as importantly, they gave me the opportunity to enjoy writing in a wide variety of genres as I searched for my voice. Which no doubt explains why I started writing traditional regencies under the name Debbie Raleigh and then moved to steamy historicals under the name Deborah Raleigh before transforming into a contemporary paranormal writer as Alexandra Ivy. Now my career spans everything from erotica to romantic suspense.
When I’m not writing I love to travel, it doesn’t matter where I’m going as long as it doesn’t include any cooking or cleaning. I also love to spend time with my family who continue to be my greatest source of inspiration. And since some things never change…when I have a few minutes, you can still find me with a book in my hand!
