If you are a paranormal fan Hunt the Darkness is a must read. I have apparently been in some sort of paranormal black hole to have missed out on this very popular series. Hunt the Darkness is book 11 in the Guardians of Eternity series and I am in love with the world that has been created by Alexandra Ivy. I read this one as a stand alone story and knew about 25% into the story that I was in trouble. It caused a groan that was a combination of joy and despair. Joy because I was totally drawn into this great story, and despair because now that I have discovered this wonderful world I must go back and start from the beginning. Reading this as a stand alone story was fine, but now I must know the stories that came before. There are definitely references to things that happened before Roke and Sally's story. While not taking away from my enjoyment of this story, not having read the previous books definitely left me wanting to know the back stories that came before.
