"some revelations that will shock long-time readers of the series"
Valentin Jaus is a Darkyn Lord and the Chicago suzerain.
Handsome, powerful, wealthy, and immortal; he wants for
nothing. Nothing except a love to call his own. He's
given up hope of ever finding that love, convinced that he
has already found -- and lost her to another man.
Liling Harper is on the run. Incredibly powerful and
potentially dangerous in her own right, she's taken to
working as a gardener at a hospital in an attempt to hide
from those who would like to get her back. A hospital
that, unbeknownst to her, is owned by Valentin Jaus.
The relationship between Liling and Valentin is one of
cautious curiosity in the beginning and then turns deeply
sensual and erotic as they find that they both can give to
the other what few others can.
As it is with most of The Darkyn series, you have
appearances from past characters. Michael and Alex threads
are scattered throughout the story, but that is to be
expected since they have a side plot going on with Alex's
brother, John and The Brethren. As I've said before in
previous reviews, while there are some people who would say
that this could be read as a stand-alone book, I wouldn't
recommend it. The Darkyn series is one that is much more
appreciated and understood if you read the series in
order. Viehl scripts an excellent story in Twilight
Fall and advances the plot wonderfully! There are some
answers to the smaller questions that have been building,
but there are also some revelations that will shock long-
time readers of the series.
