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.

“She was no longer a child to be abused sexually or physically or even emotionally.  She was a grown woman with power of her own.  With friends.  With an ancient hunter for a lifemate, and he needed her.” 

Another WOW for Christine Feehan!  I think this one may be ranked in the OMG category.  It has so much passion entrenched with need.  Skyler grows up in this story and Dimitri is a saint!   I love these characters as well as all the other Carpathians.  Spoiler alert…Skyler and Dimitri fight the battles not only to help save the Carpathians, but within Skyler’s past as well.  Then there is Zev, the Lycan Alpha who comes in the picture in the previous book Dark Lycan.  He is a great developing character who we’ll see in Feehan’s next book.   It will leave you hanging on the edge!!! ght
