Lara Calladine is haunted by childhood memories of being held prisoner in an ice cave and kept sane by the whispered stories told to her by her imprisoned aunts. They instilled mage and Carpathian magic deep within her and then helped her escape. She has spent years searching for the cave in hopes of finding the answers to the riddle of her past as well as finding her aunts who may have given their lives saving her.
Nicolas De La Cruz has returned to the Carpathian Mountains–his homeland–on orders from his eldest brother, Zacarias, to bring news of a conspiracy to the prince of their people. He is weary of his long existence and plans to end it away from his brothers where they will be unable to stop him once he has fulfilled his duty.
Lara and Nicolas paths collide in an explosive adventure that rocks the Carpathian world.
REVIEW: Christine Feehan hits another one out of the park. I have loved reading about the De La Cruz brothers and the strong willed women that they have found. I really enjoyed this book. I think one of the things that I liked most about it is that for almost the entire series it has been about the problems plaguing the Carpathian people and in the last couple of books they have been finding reasons behind these issues and begun working on a solution. There wasn’t the normal I am your lifemate and you must do as I say in this book, I think because for the first time we have been given a heroine that does know the old ways and how it works between lifemates. It is really hard to say anymore without giving away, so I will just say that if you have or are reading this series I highly recommend this one, it is a must read in my opinion.
