Audio-Book Review: Darkness Dawns by Dianne Duvall

Darkness Dawns
Author: Dianne Duvall
Read by: Kirsten Potter
Publication: Tantor Media; Unabridged,Unabridged CD edition (July 25, 2011)

Description: Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control...

In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible-when it means forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect.

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed listening to this urban fantasy novel. Sarah is minding her own business - working in her garden - when she finds herself too near a fight between vampires and their minions and one lone immortal. She finds this immortal - Roland Warbrook - being guarded by two minions. She attacks them with a shovel and manages to free Roland before the sun can rise and kill him.

However, Roland's enemy isn't going to give up which leaves Sarah in danger. Despite being the reclusive type, Roland is determined to protect this courageous young woman who put herself at risk for him. Sarah quickly gets swept up in a world she didn't know existed and falls in love with Roland. Roland love her too but is very aware of the problems of an immortal falling in love with a human. Besides which, until his enemy can be vanquished, neither one has the luxury of time to explore their relationship.

The story was fast-paced and the romance was hot. I thought Kirsten Potter did a very good job distinguishing between the characters and was very easy to listen to. The only negative to listening to this story is that I immediately want to listen to or read the next books in the series.

I listened to the unabridged audiobook on CD. I bought it from Tantor Media's bargain bin for only $6.99.
