Dark Wolf by Christine Feehan


#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan now delivers her most eagerly awaited novel of all — ten years in the making. 

In Dark Lycan, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In Dark Wolf, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death.

Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming…

No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri—as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true. Whatever the risk.

Review:  ~by Micaela

Dark Wold is about Skyler Daratrazanoff, a nineteen year old human, and Dimitri Tirunul, an ancient Carpathian warrior. They are lifemates- destined to be together. However, two societies are on the verge of war. The Carpathians and the Lycans. The leaders if these two societies are in the middle of creating an alliance between them, but when Skyler learns that the Lycans are holding Dimitri captive she must do everything she can to save him.

This book was the first book in the Carpathians series that I have read. In the beginning I was trying to piece together information about the two worlds, but once I figured it out, the rest of the story quickly made sense. I was glued to this book wondering what would happen next. There was so much action and the details were so vivid that I could imagine clearly everything that was happening. Christine Feehan does a great job of balancing big action sequences and slower parts that show the interactions between characters. And even through all of the chaos, these characters still have a lot of humor and heart. I really enjoyed this book and I am excited to read more.
