I loved this book. Actually, I love the entire series. I've been eagerly awaiting the story of Lisette and Zach since they were introduced with that little bit of tension between them. We learned so much more about Zach, but of course there are still things that need to be revealed that we probably won't get to know about until Seth's book (if there will be one). The two immortals just pretty much deserved each other and I'm very happy they were paired together. Zach was almost childlike in the beginning and Lisette brought him happiness and added a depth to him that was fun to read. So looking forward to more in this series. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
About This Item
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?

I loved this book. Act...
You would have thought...
You would have thought I'd learn by now, but after each Immortal Guardians book I always tell myself, "There is no way I could possibly love any couple more than XX and XX". Dianne continues to prove me wrong, I truly fall in love with all of them. Lisette and Zach's attraction started in a previous book so we knew their story was coming for a while. Both have been drawn to each other and things get hot and heavy pretty quickly in NIGHT UNBOUND. I enjoyed getting to know both of the characters more in depth. They really were great together, but I had no doubt they would be going in. We get a surprisingly large amount of information about Seth in NIGHT UNBOUND. We also see a totally different side of him than we are used to. I really liked that side. He is more "human" in my eyes after seeing him interact 2-on-1 with Zach and Lisette. I know I have mentioned this before, but I can't help but mention it again because it's a huge part of why I love this series so much. I absolutely LOVE that all of the characters from previous and future books are a big part of each book. It keeps the storyline connected and I learn more and more about them all as the series continues. Dianne you have to write faster, I'm going through withdraw already. * This book was provided free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Review courtesy of All...
Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. allthingsuf.com NIGHT UNBOUND is yet another in a strong, Paranormal Romance series that offers action, romance, and characters that don't fall prey to the "cast of thousands" fatigue so common in this genre. Both Lisette and Zach have appeared in prior books, and seeing these two find a happily-ever-after makes for a steamy and satisfying romance, with a minimum of drama keeping them apart. Despite that romance, or perhaps more impressive because of it, the Immortal Guardians series doesn't skimp on the action side of the story. While necessity confines some aspects of this global war to the North Carolina research triangle, those constraints don't detract from the overall enjoyability of the series. While individual Immortal Guardian hunts still seem strongly reminiscent of Buffy and the Scooby Gang going on patrol, yet another organized threat looms behind the usual vampire foes. Zach also brings with him a greater understanding of the mysterious "Others", a detail I enjoyed. While NIGHT UNBOUND isn't the best place for new readers to join the series (as they'd miss out on all the lore and relationships that precede it). Series Paranormal Romance can fall into repetitive patterns, but the Immortal Guardians has enough originality and genuine surprises to promise many, many more great books to come.

A rare female Immortal Guardian, Lisette d'Alençon, finds herself attracted to, Zach, a man their leader, Seth, affirmed the enemy. Lisette is brave and honorable for helping Zack after he saved her life, regardless of the fact that she could get in trouble with Seth. I admire that she did what she felt was right heedlessly of the potential ramifications. Zach is an "other," as old as Seth. He is courageous for following Seth's lead and breaks away from the others; despite the possibility of being tortured. He is strong for doing what he feels is right and not being part of the flock observing and doing nothing. I love Lisette's interaction and dialog between her brothers. I also, enjoyed watching Zach and Seth's rapport evolve. Dianne Duvall created a wonderful world in the Immortal Guardians series. Night Unbound is original and well-written. The plot is intoxicating and carefully thought out. Many exciting things happened to keep me fascinated. There are numerous unexpected twists. I also appreciate that the story is a continuation of the previous books, including characters from earlier novels.

I really enjoyed getting back into the Immortal Guardians series and the rich, imaginative world that Dianne Duvall has created. I'd been eagerly awaiting this book since I finished Darkness Rises, and Night Unbound did not disappoint. I was so happy that this book was about Lisette, especially now that both of her brothers have found love. After feeling guilty for centuries for accidentally turning her brothers, she really deserved to find her own Happily-Ever-After. Zach has always been so mysterious in every instance that he has appeared in the series, and it was great fun finding out more about him. Lisette changes everything for him and pulls him out of the ennui that he had been feeling, although I suspect that he had already started doing that by helping Seth out in previous books. Although we do find out more about how he and Seth met and what they are (or could possibly be at least), there are still a ton of questions left I'd like to find the answers to and I'm hoping the next book answers a little more. Overall it was a really good read! This series as a whole is one of my favorites, and I'm really looking forward to reading the next one! If you haven't checked it out yet then you should definitely give it a try!***Review copy provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review***
