URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Darkest at Dawn - Christine Feehan

Release Date: 16/02/12


'Dark Hunger' - Juliette is a beautiful activist devoted to the liberation of animals confined in a foul and humid jungle lab. But then she stumbles upon an unexpected prisoner unlike any she's ever seen. Or touched. Riordan De La Cruz, an immortal Carpathian male, is trapped and caged, his desire for revenge only beginning. She will release him from his bonds. He will release her from her inhibitions. Both have voracious appetites that must be sated. 'Dark Secret' - Rafael De La Cruz has spent centuries hunting vampires, but now he's following the scent of a human. Colby Jansen is a rancher and the sole guardian of her younger half siblings. She is prepared to protect them with her life against Rafael's blood claim. But the arrogant and fiercely sensual Rafael is after more than her family - he wants Colby. And there's nothing she can do to stop his raw desire to possess her.


OK, before we go any further I’m going to warn you that this is two stories that have previously been released, the first, book 14: Dark Hunger, the second, Book 15: Dark Secret. Don’t get me wrong, the books were more than fun to revisit, but this is one of my bugbears when books are released so that people think that they’re buying something new when they’re not. It’s a little unfair and overall its something that really needs to be made more obvious.

Other than though, if you haven’t read these two or are new to the world then this could be a great way to get your hands on two titles for a bargain price. They are great, the plotlines wonderfully magical and of course when you add the authors writing style to this, they’re a great deal all in.

This author has been repeatedly recommended to me...I guess I should really give her a try.
