This is the first Carpathian review that Im writing actually enjoying it. I love everything about this book. I'll be honest i skipped a few sex scenes and i didnt love how the ending wrapped up all quick in total feehan fashion. however the relationship between jaxx and lucian is one of the best in the series. theres real compassion, real fighting. real compromise. I enjoyed this one ( )

I need to re-read this one to give it a proper review, but remember not being crazy about this one.

Lucian, one of the legendary ancient Carpathian twins, has spent the last several hundred years pretending to have turned vampire in order to keep his beloved twin (Gabriel of "Dark Legend") from turning vampire himself, knowing that Gabriel had a lifemate out there somewhere. And now that Gabriel has found his other half, Lucian feels his mission has come to an end. For the years he has spent hunting and killing the undead have left a stain of darkness on Lucian's soul, and he has grown weary of his endless colorless and emotionless existence. But Gabriel's lifemate, Francesca, insists that she knows of Lucian's lifemate, and that this woman desperately needs Lucian's help. Christine Feehan writes one of the most complex series in paranormal romance. If you haven't tried one of her books, grab one and I really feel you'll be searching for all of them. Ms. Feehan has it all in her books--paranormal, excitement, sex, suspense, gorgeous leading men-everything. ( )

Mixed feelings on this one. I really liked Lucian as a character, but he had the typical communication issues. His lifemate was almost as dense as Alexandria, and almost as reckless as Tempest. Despite that, the plotline was pretty interesting. We like that Jaxon's a fighter, but we wish she was smarter about it. The book also includes the most epic level 'I told you so' ever, so that's worth something. It does not push forward the series story arc very much.

This is Lucian and Jaxon's story. ( )

For the first time in a Carpathian book the heroine got on my nerves. I'm not sure it is actually the character or the way the narrator portrayed her but she is so WHINY!!!! Yes she could be brave when it came to fighting but the rest of the time whine, whine, whine. I understand she had a lot of changes to make and they are by no means easy but she really was getting on my nerves when coming to grips with it. Oh and I did not care for the outcome with Drake, I agree with Jaxon, "That's it?". Alas I must have to say this has been my least favorite of the series. ( )

Jaxon Montgomery is a woman hunted. Trained by the Special Forces, honed by a traumatic childhood, she is a policewoman with an undisputed reputation. She meets her match when she is set up to be murdered by an enemy. Hunted on all sides, she can only turn to the mysterious stranger who seems more dangerous than any other she has ever known.

He ran with the wolves…
Materialized from the mists…
Hijacked the very heavens to his whims…

He was the Dark Guardian of his people. So how, after centuries of bleak, soulless existence, had he suddenly come to crave petite, curvy, colorful lady cop Jaxon Montgomery, who foolishly made it her life’s work to protect others from harm?

For centuries, Lucian Daratrazanoff has been the dark guardian of his people, living a bleak existence of violence and horror. But now his kind, the Carpathians, are dying out or falling prey to the souless life of vampires. Only by finding and claiming his destined life mate can Lucian stave off the ever present lure of the soulless evil. Part man, part predator, Lucian will stop at nothing in order to find his mate. Jaxon Montgomery is anything but ordinary. She is stubborn, independent, but a damn good cop with an unerring sense of impending danger. Honed by a traumatic childhood and years of training in Special Forces, she is determined to sacrifice everything to protect others. But now the monster from her childhood has returned, and anyone who befriends her is in mortal danger. The last thing she needs is to become involved with a man, even one as mesmerizing and bewitching as Lucian Daratrazanoff. But Lucian will not be rebuffed, and is determined to possess her, to guard her for all time, to make her his life mate...and save his soul.
