The fates of a warrior reborn and a seductive Dragonseeker are irrevocably entwined in the new Carpathian novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, “the queen of paranormal romance” (J. R. Ward).

At long last you are truly back with us…

Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors—and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan…

Mother Earth called the ancients to witness your rebirth…

For this half-mage, half-Carpathian temptress, the ritual of awakening Zev to the council of warriors was the only way to save him. Locked away for his own protection, the time has now come for his rebirth, for his blood to stir with that of the ancient warriors before him. He has been assured by Branislava that their fates are entwined, that their spirits are woven together for eternity and that his new purpose in life is beyond imagining.

Now, with a blood-sworn vow of honor, mercy and endurance, and under the influence of a siren as bewitching as Branislava, Zev begins to wonder what his purpose is, what it means for the future of the Carpathians and what it is about his rebirth that he has to fear…

Another exciting trip into the Carpathian world where danger and passion keep you gripped in its web. The love story between Zev and Branislava was hot and sensual like we’ve come to expect in this series. I loved that she is a strong alpha in her own right and that Zev not only appreciates that but loves it. A perfect match in all ways where they give and take as the situation demands. My only complaint is that it got a bit bogged down in the intricate parts of magic and spells. Thankfully it more than made up for that with the finale. I couldn’t read fast enough and heaven help anyone that tried to interrupt me. I won’t give anything away but am excited at the possible subject material for future books.

Note: Dark Blood is book #26 in the Dark Series and book #3 of the new Dark Trilogy.
