“Just when I thought I was out…they pull me back in.”
Everyone has those series that they have been devoted to for years. Probably a one-time favorite. But after a while, you find yourself getting disappointed, maybe a bit bored, with the latest books. But no matter what, you just can’t stop reading them, you still get excited when one is due out, and you still hope things go back to “the old days”. One of mine is Christine Feehan‘s Dark series, and no matter what that makes Dark Lycan my pick of the week.
Tatijana of the Dragonseekers spent centuries encased in ice with her sister, trapped in limbo between life and death, never speaking to a soul other than those who tormented her. Now, she has been freed from her frozen prison by an unknown descendent. Awakened in human form, Tatijana yearns to explore the modern world in which she now lives—a world with more mysteries than she is prepared for.
Fenris Dalka has returned to the Carpathian Mountains after a long absence to be with his brother. He is scarred by centuries of battle, and every hard-won victory. But the real reason for his return home could prove deadly if discovered by the wrong man—or woman. Upon his arrival, he is compelled by a beautiful and enigmatic stranger who carries the scent of fresh earth, of forest, of the night itself.
In time Tatijana and Fenris will discover all that unites them—their secrets and pasts, their predators, and the hot flush of passion that stirs their souls. Yet just as surely, seduced into the silvery darkness of a full-moon night, they’ll also discover everything ancient and evil that exists to destroy them.
This is the first dark book that doesn’t feature a Carpathian hero, which will be different. One of the things I always liked most about this series was the moment hero realizing he had found his lifemate, so I will miss that. That said, I am looking forward to seeing how the Lycans storyline plays out. What is your pick for this week?
