Night Reigns – Immortal Guardians #2 – Dianne Duvall

I like the ongoing storyline in this series but the protagonists are a little too cookie-cutter for me. The men are the typical strong alpha males who always do the right thing and the females are goody two shoes who never have a crooked thought and bore me into snooze land. There’s only one character on the good guys side who interests me and that is Bastien who gets under the skin of the other good guys.

Ami is something other than human. We all know that from the first book when she was rescued from some kind of super secret military type lab where she was being experimented on and tortured. A couple of her fingers were partially missing but grew back.

Marcus is an Immortal Guardian and a loner who for eight centuries pinned for a woman who would never be his and didn’t return the feelings. She has been gone for eight years now but he is still hung up on her.

When the leader of the Immortal Guardians orders Marcus to make Ami his Second, Marcus is determined to make her quit. All Immortal Guardians have to have a Second which is a human who can guard them during the day and perform other minor duties for them. Marcus discovers he is attracted to Ami which makes him more adamant to avoid and get rid of her. But Ami knows what he is up to and makes avoiding her impossible.

Their developing romance was just okay to me I didn’t understand why Ami wanted to keep whatever she is secret from Marcus though. I mean, he is immortal and sees ghosts so it’s not like he’d judge her for being different.

The ongoing storyline is interesting. Immortal Guardians hunt and kill vampires. Lately, the vampires have been coordinating and amassing an army against the Immortals which is odd because vampires go mad after a few years so it is hard for them to coordinate anything.

Now, there seems to be a new threat too. Whoever held Ami captive may still be out there.

It took me forever to get through this book. I would just get bored and go do other things. It isn’t that this book was awful but it lacked something that I can’t put my finger on. Maybe humor? I’m not going to give up on this series yet as I am assured other readers love it and I enjoy it enough to continue reading it.
