Goodreads

Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians protect humanity from unspeakable horrors--but their hearts are as fragile as any mortal's. . .

For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for--and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.

Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?

First Thought when Finished: I loved Lisette and Zach in Night Unbound by Dianne Duvall!

Story Thoughts: Going to admit that I love the romance part of Night Unbound. It was refreshing that words like love and support were early (for romance) to raise their hand in this story. It made me fall in love with the romance more than I expected too. As for the forwarding of the overall arc of the series. I felt this was a bit of filler novel but important filler. A lot happened but we only moved forward a bit. That being said, at no point was I bored during listening to the story. It was well worth the time.

Character Thoughts: Second admission: I liked Lisette in the previous books but I wasn’t sure I could handle her as the lead in a full-length novel. I was wrong. In fact, it was a little frustrating when the story wasn’t about her and Zach. I loved them together. Zach has always been swoon-worthy to me. He is one of those broken but healing characters I love to love. However, falling in love with them as a couple stunned but pleased me.

Not writing spoilers but why you can’t skip this: Two very important pieces of information come out during this book. Also if we don’t find a way to save Cliff I am going to cry (that isn’t a spoiler as he is infected but I say this every book since Bastian).

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Kirsten Potter / Length: 13 hrs and 21 mins


This is a series that I will only listen to on audio. Kirsten + Dianne = great author/narrator pairing. Kirsten outdid herself this time–her numerous accents were dead on!

Final Thoughts:Now counting down to the next one!

    I’m head over heels addicted to this series, but unfortunately this was my least favourite installment. I thought Lisette came off as dumb instead of fierce like she usually does as a side character , and there was too much mystery behind Zach for me to become completely invested in the outcome of this romance. The main story arc is progressing nicely though…

      The main story was the strongest part of this story. I love Zach but Lisette took some time for me to warm up too. I do think this has been the weakest story. I just want to know who is next and I may have to scream if something happens to my favorite vampire (he is close to going crazy *sad*)
