I really enjoy this one, a great addition the the series! Jayr is amzing and you fall in love with her from the start. I couldn't put it down after i started.
This is the first book I've read from this author and I must say that it will not be the last. Fablous, delicious, sexy with a smooth as silk storyline that will make you want more.
The author takes a tale of Olde England and turns it into spun gold. That is vampire style spun gold. The characters are not only likeable but loveable with the exception of Lord Nottingham whom you really want to hate. It's not a matter of the storyline making you want to hate him but just the aura of the character. There really is something devilish about him.
The action that takes place with Jayr doing her Lord's bidding, setting up the tournament for the Realm and accomendating the number of guests and their needs makes you wonder how anyone could possibly do everything in the amount of time alloted. Yes I know that Vampires are faster, more addept and tireless but everyone does have their limits.
Jayr not only questions herself but has doubts about who she really is. Emotions come into play that make you want to weep for her. Can she really find out who she is and possibly entertain the concept of love with someone whom she shouldn't even be thinking of. Can an erotic dream be truely real and shared? This is something Jayr must find the answer to while questioning her own sanity.
The characters, their flaws and emotions along with the deep need for sexual contact leave you to turning page after page to find only so much more.
The ending ties up loose ends with battle prowness, sexual heat and lifetime questions that have been unanswered only to show us that not is as it should be. Secrets uncovered brought to startling life make all's well that ends well.
What more can I say that if you don't read this you don't deserve to read a great work of art.
I just could not get into this one, it's flighty and just jumping all over the place. The first 4 books were good but as more characters come into play things just start to jump around too much. I enjoyed the whole Templar knights and everything but that concept has gotten lost along the way. I'll just go back to Susan Squires her's seem to keep my attention alot longer and stick to a good storyline.
Great story but start at the beginning with book 1.
In this installment of the Darkyn series, Byrne, a medieval berserker turned Darkyn and Jayr, his seneschal (the only female to ever hold the position) are faced with intrigue that may pull them apart forever. As they face rumors and hitmen, they also have to decide whether honesty will pull them together or secrets keep them apart forever.
This paranormal romance mixes medieval attitudes with modern settings and often humorous situations.
Very slow to get into in the beginning. Had to force myself to read this one past the first 100 pages....glad I did though. Not my favorite of the series, as there was a lot of jumping around and it it felt like the first half of the book was stuck in the same place...never moving forward....then suddenly it did. I loved Jayr and all the others, it just felt lacking to begin with. The later half of the book was great. I still hope to see Nottingham later on. Everyone deserves another chance! Great Series!
This book was okay. To be honest I had no idea that it was part of a series. I would not advice you to read it before reading the others first. This is book six I believe.
This one is about Jayr (the only female seneschal) and Aedan Mac Byrne who is her suzerain. The story ties together some of the other characters from the previous books which helps expand the overall storyline for the series.
Although I love the Darkyn series, this book (#5) started out slowly for me, but as the story progressed I felt more of a connection to the characters. I felt a little frustrated at first because I knew where I wanted the story to go, but the characters were not ready to go there yet. It was well worth the read and I ended up loving the story.
I recommend that you give it try if you are reading the series - as the series will be coming to a close in the next book or two.
Good read - but I found it more leisurely than the other books. Lots of very interesting history revealed but not the page-turner the first four were.
1. If Angels Burn (2005)
2. Private Demon (2005)
3. Dark Need (2006)
4. Night Lost (2007)
5. Evermore (2008)
6. Twilight Fall (2008)
7. Stay the Night (2009)
I love Lynn Viehl's Darkyn books. This one is a bit different from the previous books. It was very good, especially in the last half when the action really picked up
Ok. Here is the truth. This is a GOOD book! Love the emotions and characters. This series has gotten progressively better. YEA!! Starting Twilight Fall right now...
Really a good book. I read it and loved every minute of it.
I'm looking for shelf space for stories I like to re-read - this is not worthy.
