I must say, this is my first Viehl novel, and let me tell you, it won't be my last. This book was amazing. It had so many ups and downs, twists and turns, and it remained intriguing, what more can you ask for? And better yet, it's a series, so there is more where this one came from. I loved it. It was mysterious at times, then emotional, but always intense. I was flipping though pages faster than I could imagine, I finished it, then went back again and read it once more.
This book is about Michael Cyprien, he is a man in need, and Alexandra Keller is the only person that can help him. Alex is one of best reconstructive surgeons around, and Michael is in dire need of her services. She refuses his million dollar proposal, and he keeps trying to persuade her, and this is what leads to their incredible story. They are chased by the evil Brethren, hunted by the Darkyn, Michael's own kind, Michael almost kills her, and Alex is his only salvation. In thousands of years, Alex is the first woman to keep pace with Michael, and test his will and challenge him for everything he is worth, and together they find eternal love...
The Darkyn series is the new class of vampires for a new era. This tale has a unique spin on an old myth and it is incredibly refreshing. It's intriguing, and oddly believable. The characters are absolutely lovable, although they may seem a bit overbearing at times, but remember what time the men came from.
It's amazing. I'm hooked on them. I've read the first, and I'm going to go out and buy the rest. Honestly, the best I've read in a long time. The plots intriguing, the characters are amazing, the myth is refreshing, and the story is never ending, what more does anybody need in a book?
Pick it up and read it, I wholly recommend this book. It's phenomenal, a good read, but it will leave you with sleepless with the hours spent trying to finish this novel. Well done Ms. Viehl, a book I will come back to time and time again, truly one for the classic shelf, better than anything else I've read in a long time.
