and he has one on him In Still Darkness gives you action, steamy romance, and camaraderie I ve not tired the series out yet, but I plan to give it a try at some point This novella was enjoyable Rated 3 Stars I listened to Predatory an anthology containing this story.Rating Heat Rating Narrator Performance OMG what a fantastic read I ve seriously fallen for Richart Maybe it s because he s a

story did not disappoint Richart was sweet and sexy and Jenna was a very strong woman in her own way A young widowed mom has to be in order to raise her child to be a well adjusted, responsible adult They were wonderful together and the length of the story couldn t detract from that fact If course I wantedbut that s just me being greedy Though In Still Darkness is 3.5 in the Immortal Guardians series it actually takes place during both books 2 and 3 and ends a bit after book 3 in the series timeline Fans of the series will recognize key scenes from those books but via Richart s viewpoint That was fun I think I ve only read like two other series where that has happened and I find it to be an awesome series plot device not sure if I used the correct phrase there Bravo to Duvall for pulling it off About the narrator Arika RapsonI enjoyed parts of the narrator s performance Richart s accent was wonderful She easily pulled me into the story and kept a steady pace with no annoying pauses in wrong places Unfortunately she mispronounced Richartthan a few times She also mispronounced Bastien s name Another thing that surprised me was that she chose not to use a British accent for the few lines that Marcus spoke It said he was British in the text and she was already pulling off a French accent Considering all this I can only give her three out of five headphones I hope to listen to another of performances though It think I d love her if I wasn t familiar with the series Actual rating 4.25 I read Etienne s story before this and I realized that Richart already found his partner without my knowledge, lol It turns out that Richart have his own novella on how he met Jenna.I don t usually have high expectations with novellas They re too short and fast paced that some parts are sometimes hurried and compressed to shorten the story But I badly want to know Richart s story There s a lot of time leaps here There were parts from the second book too, the time when A

story There s a lot of time leaps here There were parts from the second book too, the time when Ami was endangered I really got teary eyed on the part where view spoiler Richart was trying so hard to get back on Ami to save her hide spoiler I love this And I totally love Sheldon I hope he s a gifted one and will be an Immortal Guardian someday That will be hilarious Even novellas in this series manage to satisfy me You don t need to read this story to keep up with the series arc In fact, some of the events take place at the same time as previous books But fans of the Immortal Guardians wouldn t want to miss the chance to meet Richart s mysterious Jenna and watch them fall in love Richart first lays eyes on Jenna when he saves her from a vampire attack In her bite induced haze, she lays an unforgettable kiss on him and ever since, he has been looking for Even novellas in this series manage to satisfy me You don t need to read this story to keep up with the series arc In fact, some of the events take place at the same time as previous books But fans of the Immortal Guardians wouldn t want to miss the chance to meet Richart s mysterious Jenna and watch them fall in love Richart first lays eyes on Jenna when he saves her from a vampire attack In her bite induced haze, she lays an unforgettable kiss on him and ever since, he has been looking for excuses to see her again He poses as a shopper in the store where she works, until he works up the nerve to ask her out From there, the attraction between them only grows.I love the fact that Jenna is an older heroine She is 37, with a son in college She is a devoted single mom, but she is still sexy and a wonderful match for Richart He is so solicitous with her, with such good manners and respect It wasn t super fiery, but it was sweet and I enjoyed watching these two together.Longtime readers will recognize a couple of scenes from previous books, as they get a repeat from Richart s point of view I think that could have gotten old, but the author didn t overuse the device The ending is kind of predictable, but hey, I wouldn t have wanted any other outcome.Worth reading.Rating B Richart d Alencon intrigued me I think it may have something to do with him being French , and after reading Phantom Shadows I wanted to learnabout him However, it disappointed me to learn that this would be a novella On its own, In Still Darkness was a good read, but when compared to the previous books, it was mediocre.This installment occurred around the same time as Night Reigns and Phantom Shadows, resulting in jumps in the sequence of events Some of the information contained in Richart d Alencon intrigued me I think it may have something to do with him being French , and after reading Phantom Shadows I wanted to learnabout him However, it disappointed me to learn that this would be a novella On its own, In Still Darkness was a good read, but when compared to the previous books, it was mediocre.This installment occurred around the same time as Night Reigns and Phantom Shadows, resulting in jumps in the sequence of events Some of the information contained in this installment is basically a repeat of what happened in books 2 and 3 I felt cheated as a result and because the story lacked depth The length is no excuse for there being no depth In addition, I felt the author rushed the story Just as things began to get interesting it was over It did not pack the punch I expected.I thought Jenna and Richart made a great couple and believed they were warranted a longer story I loved how devoted they were to each other Their romance was simple No unnecessary drama or obstacles to cast any shade on their feelings for each other.It would have been nice if there wereto Jenna s back story The information provided regarding her past came unexpectedly at the point when the story almost ended.It was refreshing to have 37 year old hero who had a son in college I hope he will be seeing him in the other books.Conclusion RecommendationOverall, a sweet romance featuring likeable characters Originally Published In Predatory In Dianne Duvall S World Of Immortal Guardians, The Stakes For Mortals
