Dianne Duvall, the mind behind the creation of the literary gem that is the Immortal Guardians series, has indeed made quite a mark on the fantasy diaspora. Her work has been changing the way people view and enjoy romantic literature, and the current trends indicate that her popularity will simply continue to increase. Her pen simply oozes the most enthralling paranormal romances of this era and this has earned her a place among today’s most read authors.
A fan of dark fantasy herself, Dianne has dabbled in the world of horror films as an actress and often lends her talents to the film production process, taking on roles in the pre-production, production and post production stages. In pre-production, she has served as script editor, shooting scheduler and assistant casting director. Her roles in film production have included special effects makeup design and application, assisting in production and coordinating the casting process. As a participant in the post production process he has worked as a film editor, movie poster designer, DVD crafter and a website creator. Clearly this writer is deeply involved n multiple aspects of the entertainment process.
She confesses that the famous Stephen King is among her many muses, but is quick to assert that her characters and story-lines are more inspired by her need to create literary art than a desire to emulate her writing idols. She also urges anxious fans to understand that her art is more about creativity and uniqueness than fitting into a mold. Apparently she doesn’t plan her story-lines far in advance of her publication releases- sign of a true genius!
As with many other writers Duvall’s experiences in her youthful days serve as the foundation on which her love of literature stands. Her early years were dominated by the world of fiction as she admits to being a voracious reader of romance novels from her pre-teen years. Her fixation with books naturally blossomed into a fruitful writing career. This author is clearly poised for success (or rather more success) as Immortal Guardians is not her only popular work. ‘A Sorceress of His Own’ one of her other masterpieces has made it to film and judging by the way her fan-base is exploding, other works will follow in its footsteps, and soon. Dianne’s writing is simply magical, on many levels.
Her bestseller Immortal gems has taken off like a rocket, raking in rave reviews from industry experts such as the New York Times and USA Today and commanding a strong online following. Her work has made it to the bestsellers list posted by Amazon.com.
The Immortal Guardian series takes readers deep into the experiences of magical beings who are traditionally viewed in a bad light. But Duvall changes all this with a fresh perspective that challenges the literary fiction status quo.
The world she weaves features vampires, human beings with extraordinary gifts and immortal beings. These characters exist in a world that blends seamlessly into the ‘normal’ world only because they do not often intertwine. When ordinary school teacher Sarah Bingham finds herself literally thrust in the middle of a world full of ‘beyond normal’ characters so many things in her life change. But these initial changes will only trigger a whole series of events that will comprise the different books in the series, Immortal Guardians.
In the first of her series Duvall pairs Bingham with an unlikely love interest, Roland Warbrook, an immortal, enemy of a corrupt vampire but also, by his very nature, a threat to Sarah’s life. Other unlikely pairs are thrust together in subsequent novels. Duvall clearly enjoys triggering questions in the readers’ minds. Questions such as: How can a romantic connection be forged or even maintained between these two? Can it last? And if it does, what kind of a life can they hope to have together? And her curiosity awakening technique has worked. Readers are eager to find out and this is one reason they hang hungrily to every word that this phenomenal writer pens and wait with bated breaths for the next novel to be released.
The suspense never really wanes though and the adventures remain fresh and exciting as Duvall weaves new tales, while maintaining common threads to maintain the connection between the books in the series. Each new installment carries new guardians, new human love interests and new complications that make their experiences come alive in the minds of readers. But the world remains similar, a world in which the mortal, the immortal and the ‘in-between’ face challenges as they battle each other to survive. Imagine if you will, a time and place in which blood consuming immortal beings are almost everywhere and vampire slayers with unique gifts stealthily stalk and ‘vanquish’ these beings. Imagine also being able to visualize every bit of detail about this place and time and you will be envisioning a day in the life of a reader of this series. But this world always has space for love to blossom. It is so easy to become so immersed in theses worlds that the mere act of taking a break from reading become tortuous.
There is clearly be a deeper message to Duvall’s work than the typical good triumphing over evil scenario, and this is something that her discerning readers will undoubtedly uncover. Her characters, through their experiences send powerful messages about love. One such message is that love is not a clean, complication free flowery affair. It comes with its own set of challenges and can sometimes be born out of contention and conflict. Another is that love will always find a way through, under or around seemingly impossible to cross boundaries.
Readers are in for a wild and entertaining ride filled with thrilling experiences,humor and a darkness that is not always all that it is perceived to be. Readers become hooked from the very first leg of the series as Duvall keeps them salivating for more of the delicious romantic drama she produces. And who better to feed your romance hunger than a writer who finds writing to be every bit as adventurous as reading?Book Series In Order » Characters » Immortal Guardians
