Lovers challenge destiny and risk their lives in this Carpathian novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance.”*
Gabrielle has had enough of battles, of wars, of seeing the Carpathian warrior she loves nearly lose his life when it isn’t even his fight. All she wants is to be away from the Carpathian Mountains, far from vampires and the shadows cast by the crumbling monastery that hides so many terrible secrets. But she isn’t the only one in search of answers in the corners of the unknown...
Trixie Joanes has come to the Carpathian Mountains in search of her wayward granddaughter, fearing that she has been lured there by something unspeakable. Instead, Trixie has stumbled onto the path of a desperate man and woman on the run. And they’re all fated for the lair of a mysterious ancient with revenge in his soul and the undying power to make bad dreams come true.

Loved this book and the continuing Carpathian saga!!
Not worthy of being a Carpathian story
I'm a huge fan of Christine Feehan's work in general and the Carpathian saga in particular, but this book is just not in the same class. The hero moves beyond the pale of strong, dominant Carpathian men and is abusive. He's worse that Zacarias De la Cruz, even. After building up to the story of Gabrielle, I am at a loss as to how the character that has been developed for so long can end up being so weak. What happened to strong heroines, like Raven, Savannah or Natalya?
I admit I am disappointed that the love story of Gabrielle and Gary that I've been waiting for wont ever happen, but this is beyond that. Cursing? This Carpathian man with centuries of knowledge and refinement cannot use his intellect to find something more intelligent than the F word? Disappointing all the way around, except for Trixie's story. There is a story worthy of being Carpathian!
Once again, a great book!
I really enjoyed this book,though Feehan has never disappointed me with any tale she weaves.
I love that so many characters I already knew had their story enriched and tied together.
