"An excellent continuation of Carpathian legends"
When widowed Corinne Wentworth walks into the bar,
Carpathian Dayan immediately recognizes her as his
lifemate. Part of the band, the Dark Troubadours, he
changes his focus and sings to her and asks Cullen to
Corinne's weak heart has put her and her unborn baby in
danger. Dayan cannot claim and transform her now because
of her pregnancy. Even if she lives through the birth,
whether she will be strong enough to withstand her
transformation from human to Carpathian even the
Carpathian healers cannot say.
The secondary romance between Corrinne's sister-in-law and
Cullen (from Dark Fire) adds a little something extra to
the story even though Lisa is sometimes an infuriating
weak personality. The connections to characters in other
books are well written and not contrived so you don't need
to have read the whole series to feel comfortable with
their appearance. This is the 12th in the Carpathian Dark
Series and although they carry the same theme (finding
soul mates) there are enough differences in personalities
and characters and writing that continues to be inspired
so that you wish to see more of this series.
