Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Sometimes, even vampires get lucky in love. They do in Lynn Viehl's engrossing Darkyn series, of which this is the fourth. Viehl's main couple here is immensely appealing, a study in tough and tender. There's Nicola or "Nick" Jefferson, an art thief toughened by life's curveballs, more at home on a motorcycle than in a gown; and Gabriel Seran, an ancient Darkyn, who has been blinded and sealed in a chapel beneath a ruined castle. His only connection to life has been to a woman (guess who?) in a dream. Nick has made a career of liberating captive vampires so they'll be grateful enough to help her find the Golden Madonna, the treasure she's seeking, but this time it's different. Against all odds, she finds Gabriel. Not only does she liberate him from the castle but also from the true curse of the Kyn, "to live beyond the desire for life." A secondary plot involving Alexandra and Michael Cyprien (first encountered in If Angels Burn) comes into play in the finale. There's a closet thief, a blind vampire, rousing motorcycle chases, and a secret room full of Templar treasures -- plus the allure of vengeance. Viehl builds in plenty of plot twists in this intense love story. Ginger Curwen

    Another great book in the series!

    Of course, my favorite character, Alexandra appeared in the book. It seems as though for every book that is written, the sassier the women become. I love the diverse group of characters the author employs. The stories become more riveting as the series progress. Loved it and definitely a keeper!

    I'd give it another 1/4 star..

    It's an okay read. I'll even go out and get the next book because I'm curious as to where the author's going with her idea of a pathogen creating the Darkyn. Hopefully curiosity won't kill the cat 'in other words, I hope her stories get better and actually concentrate on one guy and one gal who fall in ove.'

    worth the read

    This is the 4th book in the darkyn series and IMHO the best written yet. Ms. Viehl does an excellent job delving into her male characters and a reader is able to understand the emotional complexities of these not quite human beings. My only complaint is that the heroines of these novels are a little too rough around the edges and it is hard to get a reading on them. Maybe a little softening would help to relate and sympathize better with them. I truly enjoy how 'good' vs. 'evil' portrayed in her stories and look forward to the next installment.

    great romantic fantasy

    For two years the Brethan tortured Ancient Darkyn Gabriel. Most people would be dead from the brutality of these religious maniacs. However, Gabriel has survived because he dreams that one day he will be free with the woman he loves. --- Nicola 'Nick' Jefferson searches for Golden Madonna stolen from her parents. She believes by finding the icon she will also locate those fanatics who killed her parents she plans to murder each one of those SOBs. In a devastated church, instead of finding the Madonna, Nick meets and rescues Gabriel. Finally liberated, Nick means to demand his Darkyn leader Richard explains why he was left behind if he does not like the explanation, which is what he expects, he will kill his former friend. Richard abducted Alexandra Keller, the soul mate of the American vampire leader Michael Cyprien, as his last prayer that she can cure the mutation destroying him before a Darkyn civil war occurs. --- The previous Darkyn tales (see DARK NEED) have been some of the best romantic fantasy on the somewhat glutted market in recent years. The fourth thriller NIGHT LOST is the most complex to date as two delightful prime subplots take readers down separate paths until they merge in a terrific climax. The Nick-Gabriel arc provides a delightful romance with vengeance a key theme while the cleverly designed Richard-Alex abduction focuses on a potential war as much as the illness. Fans of the series will agree that Lynn Viehl is at the top of her and newcomers will seek out previous novels. --- Harriet Klausner

    Night Lost latest in a superior series

    Night Lost, the latest book in the Darkyn series is a well written, tightly plotted story that not only ties in with the previous storylines but introduces a new heroine who is tough, self sufficient and full of surprises. While traveling across Europe stealing artwork from churches, she discovers and rescues Gabriel, a Darkyn who has been tortured, blinded and sealed up in a chapel cellar. The growth of their relationship while being pursued by the villians is well done. There are twists and turns in the story that will surprise and delight the reader. Although a stand alone book those who have read the previous books will be pleased to follow the growth of the characters from previous books that have been woven seamlessly into Night LostD
