In the new novel by the number-one New York Times best-selling "queen of paranormal romance", a wounded warrior and a woman on the run find salvation, passion, and unimaginable danger in the ghostly darkness of the Carpathian Mountains.
He wasn't civilized or tame. He had his own code, and he lived by it.
Monk. Bounty hunter. Vampire slayer. Andre Boroi has spent centuries battling the undead, holding out against the dark with honor. But now, gravely wounded by master vampire Costin Popescu, Andre will be easy to track - his spilled blood marking the killing trail for Popescu and his hungry band of underlings. Andre's only chance is to disappear into the gray mist of the Carpathians. To wait. To hope.
She had a healing touch and a scent that was his lifeblood.
In the mountains in search of a precious crystal, geologist Teagan Joanes suddenly finds herself hunted by those she once trusted. Then she comes across the warrior - wounded, wanting, and irresistible. Andre has been craving her for an eternity: his lifemate. Her warmth envelops him. Her scent pulsates. And with every beat of her heart, Teagan surrenders to a passion she can't possibly comprehend.
Now they are bound by destiny, but is it enough to keep them safe from a stalking, relentless darkness that threatens to swallow them alive?

I am getting older with a younger heart and outlook. Love reading and just began listening to books. VERY avid reader!
I have read all the Carpathian books, Drake Sisters, am working on Sisters of the heart and started the Ghost Walker series. In other words, I am a great fan of Christine Feehan. This was the worse book I have read/listened to by her. The "heroine?" was ridiculous! She was supposedly, to hear her repeatedly stating, a highly intelegent, modern woman. Couldn't prove it by me. She was also supposed to be tiny, but the woman's voice made her sound like an Amazon. There really seemed to be no plot. You are fooled into believing a great gift is being found for the Carpathian race, but that was barely alluded to. Most of the book was what took place between the two main characters while they were in the cave, with a jaunt here or there outside. Boring and repetitive. After all the great stories before this, I was upset to waste a credit on this one. Sad. Hopefully, the future will show us more of the great writing I have come to expect from Ms Feehan. The male voice was well done, by the way. Didn't want to not give him credit.
"If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be". Most of us are every day hero's. Never mind the kind. Search for more. Listen.
I have read every book in this series. I feel sad to say that this story was repetitive in so many ways,taking up each hour,and putting me into a deep Carpathian sleep where my only hope is that the Author will be healed, inspired a new. How many times can you describe the same body parts? Hear the same plot, and hope for just some spark of interest?. I encourage readers to listen to her first books as they are still wondrous fun. This is so sad.I feel the loss. First time ever for me to say not worth the credit. Out of respect for all the many past wonders, I have not the heart to go into vast detail on how bad this story really is. It is time for me to move on.Face reality and Continue with other authors No more automatic buy. .I wish it could have been otherwise. Thanks for all the books I did so enjoy.
if this was the first book i read of Ms Feehans, it would have been the last and i would have missed some wonderful stories. this had a good potential story line but found myself fast forwarding. looking forward to seeing how Tegans abilities can change the war, be able to help the "monks" and Andres brothers. hopefully Ms. Feehans future books will once again have exciting adventures too. this book was just 90% gratuitous sex & gushing. I have waited so anxiously to be so dissapointed!
Audible is my #1 in my commuter survival kit. You have put WOW in my day I appreciate all the things I have enjoyed and learned. Thank you !
Tegan's reaction to everything. I kept thinking poor Andre to get stuck with such a confused life mate.
As I said, the female character really lacked in maturity, actually she was pretty irritating with the "me" "my" "modern woman" stuff.
Andre, both readers are great, I really like the male and female combination since the Carpathian male voices would be pretty difficult for a woman to do and at times it is difficult for men to do women.
Disappointment, the Tegan character was too much to bear.
I have and will continue to enjoy Ms. Feehan's books save the Tegan characters for the waste basket.
I couldn't take it! I wish I could get a refund. most books take you to other places in your imagination, bring you to far away lands... this book was like being trapped in dark room with 2 mumbling idiots. I gave up at chapter 15.
I was excited because this was an interracial book in the series. I was ready and then let down big time. Of course the books are repetitive but word description as well as the plot left me disappointed and unsatisfied... I hope the rest of the series is not going to let me down
This is a great and truly brave warrior, his lifemate is more curse than gift. I would rather seak the dawn rather than put up with her for a day than all eternity with a total shrew. Worse herion in all the books....... Please no more ungrateful wenchs.... These warriors deserve much better and committed mates. Not women who truly only care about their desires and whims.....😬
