Another book in the Dark series from Christine Feehan, and yes I’m still going out of order. This one does tie in to several other books, but the one that sticks out for me is Dark Celebration, a book I read several years ago.
This one carries on with one of the couples that were mentioned in that book, Skyler and Dimitri. This series revolves around lifemates, and these two already know they are intended. But, Skyler is human, very young, and with a dark past that haunts her. Dimitri is stuck between two factions, the Lycans and the Carpathians, because he is both. The political atmosphere is murky, and there are traitors in their midst.
Some issues are resolved, and some issues are too big to be resolved in one book. The next book in the series, Dark Blood, seems to continue almost exactly where this one leaves off (she includes an excerpt) and I now want to read that one too!
