I do have to say that of all the books of hers so far this one is the best ever. It is a long book, but it is so worth the time. It only took me 4 day to finish it, yes it was that good. You won't even see of sex scene for at least 300 pages and that was cool, since it allowed for a lot of action and fighting going on. You learn a huge plot against the carpaithians that you don't get enough of in any of the other books I think. The carictures are very easy to get close too, and the vampires are easy to hate but you learn a lot of another side of the bloodlines you never knew about. The Mage.
It is a wonderful, exciting book
I love all of Christine Feehan books, so I could be a little prejudice on that score.
This story is about Natalya who is (Carpathian, Mage and Dragonseeker who is the oldest bloodline of the Carpathians). She was also gifted with being part tiger, which she can turn into when she is cornered by the vampires. She also carries a Dragonseeker birthmark, that burns whenever a vampire gets near or in the vacinity of her. Her mage blood line comes from the Carpathians sworn enemy, who stole a Carpathian life mate after killing her lifemate.
She is on the search of a knife and a book that has spells in it that her evil grandfather sealed with the 3 bloods of a Carpathain, Mage and the Dragonseeker) And only 1 who carries all three bloodlines can open this book.
Her lifemate is Vikirnoff who is on his way back to the Carpathian mountains to say goodby to his prince, and to end his life, until he hears her voice inside his head and he sees colors and he gets his emotions back.
In this book near the end, you will read about the power that is written in all her other books. The alligence between Mikhail, and Gregori and all the Carpathians. In this book you will read about why the Prince (Mikhail)is so important to all the Carpathians and their surviveral
The story of Natalya and Dark Hunter Vikirnoff. I found the character of Natalya annoying with her sassy but arrogant mouth. I know some women may take delight in having a strong female protagonist but does she have to be so sarcastic and demeaning to Vikirnoff? I liked the idea of having a warrior type woman though. She's a perfect match to
Virkirnoff who at first thought that when he met his lifemate she'd be gentle, soft and feminine. It's only until later does he realize that Natalya is the perfect female for him and only gets nervous when she puts herself in dangerous situations. At least Natalya has the training and power to battle evil unlike other heroines in this series who jump into very frighthening situations with no battle skills. Like all of the other Carpathian males, Virkirnoff is hot. The plot has some good twists and turns and there's a mystery also that gets cleared up at the end.
great story! I loved Natalya's constant references to characters on tv and movies which were very funny. Worth the read.
Christine Feehan just gets better and better.
