Shadows Strike (Immortal Guardians‑ Book 6)
Dianne Duvall
Mass Market

     Heather has had a recurring dream for the past year. She's sitting in a clearing near her home when vampires swarm into the area. Following them is a mountain of a man. When she discovered the spot in real life, Heather knew she had to find out what the dreams meant. Every morning Heather waits in the clearing. It's been an utter waste of time... until today.
Ethan is an Immortal Guardian. He and his brethren protect humanity from violent vampires. Ethan is concerned about leaving Heather alone because other vampires may come looking for their slain comrades.
     Ethan discovers that Heather is a gifted one, a human with special abilities. She is able to read minds. She learns of the danger that vampires present and is persuaded to use her gift in the fight against them.
     Meanwhile, across the world vampires are preparing to bring about Armageddon. Ethan and his brothers‑in‑arms must stop this army and destroy its puppet master. As he and Heather fight to protect humankind, they fall in love. Now if they can manage to prevent the world from ending, they will be able to spend eternity together.
     This is a continuation of a series. It can be read alone, but the cast of characters is so large that it would be less confusing if one has read the previous stories. This is a really good book.
