Title: An Immortal Guardians Companion by Dianne Duvall
Series: Immortal Guardians
Published by Tantor Audio on 8 February, 2022
Genres: Fantasy, Short Stories (single author)
Narrator: Kirsten Potter
Length: 7 hours 25 minutes
Your favorite character, Sheldon, here. If you’re an Immortal Guardians fan, I think you’re really going to enjoy this companion. Dianne has packed it with ninety pages of deleted scenes that feature many of the characters you’ve come to know and love plus a bonus scene from Cliff’s Descent that you won’t want to miss.
You’ll also find every character interview Dianne has ever written inside these pages. (Those of you who’ve encountered a few in the past know the ones I conduct are the best.) If you’ve never read one or you missed a few, then pick up a copy, sit back, and laugh while I interview Immortal Guardians and the loves of their lives for the network. Even Chris Reordon and Todd down at network headquarters get in on the action.
I also interview Dianne and ply her with questions I thought you’d like to ask her. Throw in a couple of short stories, what inspired the Immortal Guardians series, and a brief Who Does What Now? list, and you’re bound to enjoy it.
See you on the inside!
Your friend, Sheldon (Immortal Guardian Richart’s immensely competent Second)
And the most beloved character in the Immortal Guardians series (at least in his mind).

What did I think about it?
A Fabulous Collection of Deleted Scenes, Extras, and Character Interviews.
You only have to browse through my review archive to know that I’m a big fan of Dianne Duvall’s books. 😉 I love her writing style, the language she uses and the way she paces her plots. There’s always a natural balance throughout the story between the mystery, fighting and violent scenes and the humorous, romantic and passionate ones. All of Dianne’s characters are well thought out, with a range of personalities without being stereotypical. Therefore, they feel real and believable, despite most of them being supernatural.
An Immortal Guardians Companion is narrated by Kirsten Potter.
Kirsten has narrated Dianne’s other books and as usual, her performance was excellent. She knows these characters after playing them since the beginning. Kirsten has a knack for voices and has created many for this series. The different accents she uses for Dianne’s characters bring them to life in my ear and she never muddles them up! I enjoyed the quirks Kirsten’s performance highlighted too.
Listening to this audiobook, I was taken back to some breathtaking stories.
I’m glad that Dianne didn’t actually delete the scenes that were cut from the published books. Saving them for a rainy day? Clever woman!😘 I loved listening to them, getting another peek into Immortal Guardian life. However, An Immortal Guardians Companion has more than just deleted scenes to listen to. Make yourself a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy all of the character interviews that are also included. I loved these! Dianne writes these interviews for blog tours that are organised during the launch of every new book. I admit they’re some of my favourite posts to read. 💚
The Immortal Guardians team will always hold a special place in my heart.

The Immortal Guardians series by Dianne Duvall
Immortal Guardians series sits in the paranormal romance genre. However, it could also sit happily on an urban fantasy shelf due to much of the content. Set in our modern human world, it features a new twist on the vampire genre.
Immortals and vampires are both infected with the same virus, which lends them dramatically increased strength, speed, healing capabilities and enhanced senses. Vampires are humans who have been infected, whereas Immortals are Gifted Ones who have been infected. Gifted Ones are men and women who were born with extremely advanced DNA that lends them special gifts, such as healing, telepathy, precognition and the like. Vampires rapidly descend into madness when the virus damages their brains but Immortals don’t; their advanced DNA protects them from that aspect of the virus.
