Review: Dark Wolf (Dark, #25) by Christine Feehan
Parnormal Romance - Vampires - ShapeshiftersIn 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.

There is not much I can say about Christine Feehan and her Carpathians. Fans will not want to miss reading Skyler and Dimitri's story, my god, it's been a long time coming. Those who have not picked up this series yet need too it's amazing and worth the read. Feeham has a way with words, world building, and character integration. We get hot alpha Carpathians, humans with psychic gifts, lots of action and well written sex scenes.
I have been so excited for Dimitri and Skyler’s story every since they meet in Dark Celebration. Feehan did not disappoint! Skyler has grown into a women who accepts her Mage side as well as her Dragonseeker heritage. Everything about this book was outstanding! The relationship that Skyler and Dimitri have is so different from the other books. It’s special and magnificent. We know how very Alpha all the Carpathian males can be, but Dimitri does not let it take control. Dimitiri is caring, sweet, and patient with Skyler. He understands her and her fears. Their first real kiss was sweet and their love making was just that love making.
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.
