Publisher's Summary

To hell and back...

Though he has vampire, demon, and Viking blood rushing through his veins, Ivar Kjeidsen's soul-crushing trip to hell broke him in ways he can barely fathom. One vow keeps the deadly immortal standing: To rescue the vampire brother who had sacrificed freedom for him. To do that, Ivar needs the help of a brilliant physicist with wary brown eyes, fierce brilliance, and skin that's way too soft.

Dr. Promise Williams understands the underpinnings of the universe but has never figured out the human beings inhabiting it. Her function is to think - and not feel - until she's touched by a vampire who's nowhere near human. The primal hunger in his eyes awakens feelings in her that defy calculation. As she shows him the way to step between worlds, he brands her with a pleasure that could last more than a lifetime....

Who’s next?

No, seriously? Anyone know? Because it’s not on her page(s)...
I’ve been really excited to hear/ read Viking’s story and of course the Doc he was so gonna fall for. I couldn’t wait. As always, Rebecca Zanetti delivered! Promise was completely what I would have expected her to be. Logical and pragmatic with no ideas about what might be illogical out there. Kinda like Temperance Brennen in the TV show not books. And their chemistry was amazing.
The storyline as always leaves me wishing that I could get the next book now. I wanna know what’s gonna happen with Hope Kyllwood and her band of cutie kids.
I wanna know that someone beats Pax’s dad up. Bad.
I look forward Adair and Graces story. So much happening I know it’ll be great but I don’t know when that’ll happen- chronologically.
Catching up with Emma is always delightful. The rest of them are hovering some too.

Must Read!

This is the second time that I have read this book. This time I actually listened to it on Audible. I must say, it was just as amazing the second time around as the first time! I love Ivar and Promise, they are just the greatest couple. They just fit together so well it's crazy. I keep thinking that the next book in the series won't be as good as the previous book and every single time I am proven wrong! Every book just gets better and better in my opinion. This is a series that everybody should read. The characters are phenomenally written, the storytelling moves you along in a unique manner that just draws you in and makes you feel like you're part of the world that the story is taking place in (even though parts of the setting is not actually real). The love between these alpha males and strong heroines blows my mind every time. It doesn't matter whether you listen to the story on Audible or read the book on your Kindle or paperback the story and entire series is worth every moment and you won't regret the time that you spend in the Dark Protectors world! I love love this book and series!

So disappointed. Don't spend the credit!

When I read "Return status: Not eligible". I was so disappointed. If it was a paper book at least I could give it away. Her characters are a kin to stick figures they have no depth. It was like watching a very bad C or D movie. Only made it to 17 out of 43 chapters.

I understand she is trying to make the doctor a person who is so wrapped up in her work that she has no social skills but it just does not work. It's very dry like eating dry over cooked toast with nothing to drink.

I apologize if you are a fan of this author but it's not for me. I like books that make me laugh, cry, keep you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next, this book not so much. Reading this book would be like watching someone knit if you have no interest in knitting.

Funny, romantic, & entertaining

This book made me lol. The romance was off the chart. Female characters were strong, caring, and gave the right amount of do not mess with me vibes.

How can you go to different realms?

This story picks up right after Demon's Mercy. Ivar is trying to put his life back together piece-by-piece after he was thrown into hell. All he wants to do is go find Quade and take his place in hell. Ivar is what I like to call a tortured hero. He is broken and has a lot of angst and just does not believe in himself. For me those are the best characters because when they realize that they are strong and they can do everything they transform into such amazing characters. And that is what happened with him.

Promise is a genius. She knows everything about inter-dimensions, math, wormholes, and hypothesis theories. 99% of the time I had no idea what she was talking about and I am glad that she spoke plan for everybody around her including myself.

The first meeting between Ivar and Promise was funny. He is not the smoothest person and he is not the best liar. He thought he would be able to take her and she would be placid however he met his match with her.

Throughout this entire story people were dying left and right and I still want to know why the others were killed since Promise is the top of her field? We also got to see Hope in all her besties. There are a lot of questions that I have pertaining to Hope and also her friends. In the first story arc Hope's mom, Janie, was the one to change everything but she did not end up with the 'bad guy'. I'm just wondering what is going to happen between Hope and her friend that she mets in her dream relam.

We also got to realize that the seven and the Realm strongholds are not the best. There are lots of issues that occurred within their security and I'm glad that it got exposed because during war and battles I don't think I personally can handle people getting kidnapped left and right. I really am glad that Ivar found somebody and accepted him with all of his flaws and seriousness.

Moves the series plot along with an engaging storyline

Lots of earlier characters are included in the story of the Ivar, Viking hybrid and Promise, an enhanced human scientist. Good story.

How much longer until the next book?

I’ve never not loved any dark Protectors novel. I love the imagination, the bits of humor, the interesting characters, the sensual heat and love between family and mates. I must admit that trying to follow the technical explanations by the Realms scientists, is a challenge. I’ve resigned myself to being satisfied with getting the general idea.
This book seemed to be more of a cliffhanger than most of the other books, so I’m anxious for the next release!
As with every book released by this author, this book is definitely worth the credit!
