The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out...

U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.

Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive...

The Immortal Guardians are back in SHADOWS STRIKE and it's Ethan's turn for love. He definitely deserves it and it was great following Ethan and Heather's story.

Heather never imagined that her dreams would come true and that they would thrust her into a life she never imagined, but she jumps in head first and has a remarkably easy time adapting to her new reality. I have liked all the woman who have joined the series, but there was something about Heather that really drew me into her character. I already know that I will love seeing her in future books and finding out what she is up to. Ethan thought he loved Lisette, but being around Heather quickly shows him that he was wrong. Their romance is hot from the beginning and they fit really well together. They became one of my favorite couples of the series very quickly.

As with all the books in this series, there was PLENTY of action, suspense and drama to keep me on my toes. The secondary characters continue to be a key aspect of every Immortal Guardians book. There is new conflict sprouting up and new allies join the guardians cause at every turn including one you would never suspect. I can never get enough of the Immortal Guardians and their love stories. I wish they came out faster, but I know perfection takes time. SHADOWS STRIKE will have to hold me over until next year.

I gave it 5/5 stars
