In a stunning new series, Alexandra Ivy lures readers into the dark, seductive world of the Sentinels--humans outcast by their hidden abilities, treading the line between life and death, good and evil, pleasure and pain. . . In The Heart Of Darkness Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: she's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro--one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures. Lies The Kiss Of Death Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally. Praise for Alexandra Ivy "Beyond the Darkness kept me riveted! The Guardians of Eternity series is highly addictive." --Larissa Ione "Ivy always packs her books with buckets of action, emotion and sexy sizzle. Another winner!" --Romantic Times on Devoured by Darkness

Kansas City Sergeant Duncan O’Conner’s murder investigation solicits the help of necromancer, Callie Brown, to help solve the paranormal case. What Callie discovers is the work of a powerful necromancer who should not exist. Working together they need to stop the murderer and try not to become the next casualty. The world they live in has a lot of trust issues between the supernatural community, better known as high-bloods or freaks and humans. They need to overcome prejudices in order to work with each other. I enjoyed that the characters discovered things about themselves throughout the novel that enable them to grow as individuals and accept details about themselves. Alexandra Ivy is off to a great start with this new series. She does a good job at making the story seem believable. Born in Blood has fast pace action that will keep you guessing.

The first book in the Sentinels series is an exciting and mesmerizing read. Hard bitten Kansas City cop Sergeant Duncan O’Connor enlists the help of a necro – one of the dead-channeling freaks from nearby Valhalla – when a beautiful erotic dancer is found murdered and the only clue is that she’s missing her heart. “High-Blood” Callie Brown senses a powerful presence in the mind of the dancer’s mind and realizes this was on ordinary homicide. With both their hearts and their lives on line, O’Connor and Callie‘s skills will be put to the test by a legendary necromancer who can control souls. This steady to fast paced plot engages the reader from the very beginning and keeps their attention to the end. The reader brings this intriguing story to life with vivid images, action, and bewitching characters that capture the imagination. The author uses well known as well as unique conflicts and drama to give the story lots of depth and ensures that the reader will want to know more. The action and battle scenes are well written and believable and make the reader feel as if they are right there and part of the story. The attraction between Callie and Duncan radiates heat from every page and the sex scenes rock the very foundations. The author brings the romance, passion and emotions to life with intense detail that makes easy to relate to the characters and understand their motivations. This fascinating and entertaining world captures the imagination with unique concepts, enchanting characters, endless possibilities and surprises that keep the reader guessing. I love Alexandra Ivy’s Guardian of Eternity series and I was looking forward to reading this one and while I must say it is totally different from the Guardians, it is just as mesmerizing and entertaining and I can’t wait for the next more
