Dark Lycan by Christine Feehan

Christine Feehan is back and better than ever!!!

Dark Lycan, Christine Feehan, Berkley
Dark Carpathians #24
Tatijana of the Dragonseekers spent centuries encased in ice with her sister, trapped in limbo between life and death, never speaking to a soul other than those who tormented her. Now, she has been freed from her frozen prison by an unknown descendent. Awakened in human form, Tatijana yearns to explore the modern world in which she now lives—a world with more mysteries than she is prepared for.

Fenris Dalka has returned to the Carpathian Mountains after a long absence to be with his brother. He is scarred by centuries of battle, and every hard-won victory. But the real reason for his return home could prove deadly if discovered by the wrong man—or woman. Upon his arrival, he is compelled by a beautiful and enigmatic stranger who carries the scent of fresh earth, of forest, of the night itself.

In time Tatijana and Fenris will discover all that unites them—their secrets and pasts, their predators, and the hot flush of passion that stirs their souls. Yet just as surely, seduced into the silvery darkness of a full-moon night, they’ll also discover everything ancient and evil that exists to destroy them.

I am so happy to be back in the land of kick ass lifemates! I really thought I was going to have to give up on this series and it made me a little sad. This series is one of the first that really pulled me back into the paranormal world. I just really, really didn't like any of the De La Cruz brothers and the way they treated their lifemates. UGH!!

Tatijana and Fen were a great duo. While both fought their attraction to each other at first once it came down to it there was really no hesitation and they were a COUPLE. He didn't try to bundle her in cotton and hide her away, He recognized her abilities and they fought together.

This is the first in a trilogy inside the series as a whole, and I think all three of these books will center around the Lycan blood and the way that it blends and changes the Carpathians. The book was fast paced and this story brought new life to this long running series. The next book is one that all of the fans have been waiting for Dimitri and Skylar and while there isn't any info on the third book yet I have a feeling it might be the first time we see a Carpathian woman mate with a non-Carpathian male...which would be a HUGE twist!

It was great to see some of the characters from earlier books. Reading about Gregori with his twin girls was the best and I have to say this generation of Carpathians have some interesting talents. I would not at all be surprised if the series made a time jump and the next set of books centered around this younger generation.

If you were a fan of the series but kind of fell away I encourage you to pick up this book I think you will be pleasantly surprised and it may re-kindle you love for these books. I know it did mine!
