Phantom Shadows (Immortal Guardians #3) by Dianne Duvall

Phantom Shadows (Immortal Guardians #3) by Dianne Duvall
This is an adult paranormal romance novel (Rated NC-17)
(Five Shadowed Hearts)
Book Summary
Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire . . .

Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different — and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question — he can't put her in danger. But she isn't asking him . . .
My Review
Okay, it’s been a while since I read this series. So I spent the first several chapters trying to reacquaint myself with the series. Some authors give you so much, others not enough. And I guess it depends on if you are reading them back to back to decide which you like best. I’m leaning towards a little more background in this one.
Still from what I can gather two years have passed in book world not the real world. And these characters have been interacting.
I love the realism in this story. Characters dies, even ones we like. It makes you feel more edge when a battle happens if we know an author is capable of killing off one of the characters.
I also like that the other characters in the previous books haven’t fallen off the face of the earth and are included in this story for their special talents. I didn’t like that Bastian wasn’t as strong and was bested by someone. But that is also the realism. Not every character is the strongest and undefeatable.
I loved the first, and I’m still loving this one. Hoping the next book will be out soon.
Audio Review
Kristen Potter does an excellent job with narration. I enjoyed the series very much. She did a really good job with all the accents.
