I’m reading these out of order and I like it for myself. I read Dark Wolf (the next book) then this book. I also have the book after Dark Wolf, Dark Blood. I know it’s all a bit strange as series are made to be read in order, but for this plot line I like what I’ve done. It’s building the suspense and anticipation for what’s to come in the next book.
Dark Lycan is the story of Tatijiana Dragonseeker and Fenris Dalka, the first Guardian of All or Lycan/Carpathian mix. There is progress on Dimitri/Skyler and Zev/Branislava, but also there is plot of Lycan and Carpathian politics that continues in the next book.
The only thing I find a little unimaginative is the name Fenris. Fenris is a very traditional well known Norse mythical wolf name, not sure I care for that decision, but the characters all call him Fen anyway so maybe it’s just my delicate sensibilities crying out for something more creative.
Aside from that, the book flows very well, is an enjoyable read, and continues the Carpathian race.
