Blurb: He wasn’t civilized or tame. He had his own code and he lived by it. Monk. Bounty hunter. Vampire slayer. Andre Boroi has spent centuries battling the undead, holding out against the dark with honor. But now, gravely wounded by master vampire Costin Popescu, Andre will be easy to track—his spilled blood marking the killing trail for Popescu and his hungry band of underlings. Andre’s only chance is to disappear into the gray mist of the Carpathians. To wait. To hope.
She had a healing touch and a scent that was his lifeblood. In the mountains in search of a precious crystal, geologist Teagan Joanes suddenly finds herself hunted by those she once trusted. Then she comes across the warrior—wounded, wanting and irresistible. Andre has been craving her for an eternity: his lifemate. Her warmth envelops him. Her scent pulsates. And with every beat of her heart, Teagan surrenders to a passion she can’t possibly comprehend.
Now they are bound by destiny, but is it enough to keep them safe from a stalking, relentless darkness that threatens to swallow them alive?
Review: I really loved this book when I first read it but reading it again, I kind of feel like this is a filler book. Don’t get me wrong, I still think this is a great book but I just don’t see it furthering the major plot.
There was at least two pages filled with the way she climbed. Now while I love that this is a slow book, especially after all of the action with Dark Lycan, Dark Wolf, Dark Blood and Dark Crime, I’m just not really interested in how to climb. As far as a filler book goes though, this is still a five star in my book.
The author seems to finally be bringing different skin tones to the Dark Series, the only other character I can think of that wasn’t white is MaryAnn. Now that she’s bringing in different skin tones, she can maybe start bringing in different body types?
The cover, inside and out, is beautiful. I know I’m going to keep spending that extra little bit of money to get the hardbacks just because of those inside covers.
The pace was rather slow, they spent most of their time in the cave but, like I said, it’s nice to have slow and steady after all of the action of the last four books.
Thank you for reading my review.
