A rumor has persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer—a woman—who travels with a wolf pack and any among the vampires who meets her is slain. Mysterious, elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror into the hearts of the vampires.
Ivory Malinov is that woman, betrayed by her own people, by her family, by everyone she held dear and she hunts during the night with only her pack to sustain her sanity. She has not spoken to or been with any other person for a hundred years other than to feed from or slay. She stumbles across a body on her way back to her lair and discovers—her lifemate.
He is Razvan, branded a hated criminal, detested, feared and loathed by all Carpathians—he is also a dragonseeker of one of the greatest lineages of all Carpathians Held captive nearly his entire life by his grandfather, the Carpathians bitterest enemy, he is seeking the dawn to end his terrible existence.
This is a story of two people, horribly betrayed, wounded in spirit, fighters to the death, who must struggle to unite against a common enemy.
Another great addition to the Carpathian series by Christine Feehan. I really enjoyed the characters in this one, they had both been through so much, and yet they retained a strong sense of honor and decency. The storylines are becoming more intricate with each new edition to the series, and this one was full of mystery and revelations. Christine has an incredible talent for weaving romance through every page, and the tension she creates keeps you on the edge of your seat with anticipation.
Held captive for centuries, Razvan was believed to be a traitor to the Carpathian race, and most would turn him away or even worse, murder him on sight. But when Ivory stumbles upon him at his weakest moments, she can think of nothing beyond saving him because she knows he is her lifemate. Ivory was betrayed by not only a mage but her own family; trust comes hard to her and she wants nothing to do with the Carpathian race beyond exacting revenge against Xavier, the powerful mage who works to wipe out her entire species. But things change when she meets Razvan, and she opens her warrior’s heart once more to love.
