In an explosive novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a human woman ignites the desire of her Carpathian lifemate--and of an ancient vampire with a score to settle.
After the devastating loss of her entire family, Lorraine Peters heads to the woods searching for peace of mind and anything to quell the anger in her soul. Instead, she stumbles upon a scene of horrific violence, as one man lies helpless in the face of three attackers.
Andor Katona's existence has been a harsh one, living for centuries as a monk in the Carpathian Mountains. Unable to find his lifemate, he almost welcomes his release from a colorless and unfeeling world at the hands of the vampire hunters who have mistaken him for their prey. That is, until a whirling ball of fury bursts onto the scene, determined to save him.
In one glimpse, in one breath, Andor recognizes Lorraine as his lifemate, but it will take more than their telepathic connection to convince her of their immortal bond. Lorraine is a lethal combination of cunning and courage. So much so that she captures the attention of a master vampire, one who has already lost what was once irreplaceable to him. One who will strike with deadly precision at Andor and his ancient Carpathian comrades in a war to end all wars. . .
Yeah, another amazing book in this series! Since the focus on the new American compound, the series has felt pretty fresh, and I'm really enjoyed the Ancients from the monastery finding their happiness! It's just so great to read!
This book starts off very quickly, and it's kinda funny, though it is life threatening. I mean, she comes to rescue him with a sauce pan! It's fairly fast paced, and tit's different from other books, there's basically one kiss and nothing further for the first third to maybe half. Things heat up very quickly, but since he's injured, they can't really do anything until he's healed.
So we learn more about the bad guy, and yeah, it's not good, because he's different from the others, even the others in his family. So to beat him, it's going to take innovation, and it's going to be harder. I can't wait to read that!
We do get another couple set up in this book, one that I'm really excited about, because yeah, they're more of a Dark Legend couple, with both of them being older Carpathians. Which isn't something that usually happens, most of the time the ladies started out as human, and thus, younger! So I'm excited for them!
I loved this book, and I can't wait for more books in this series!
