Overview

New York Times bestselling author Lynn Viehl’s enthralling new series continues as a valiant warrior sets out on a dangerous quest for immortality…and endless love…

Jamys Durand has survived being made an immortal Darkyn, horrific torture, and years of grueling warrior training. But he has no future to offer Chris, the mortal woman he loves, without his own territory. When he learns of a lost Templar treasure, Jamys vows to possess it and win his lady’s heart.

No one knows Chris Lang wants to be a tresora so she can live with Jamys, her secret love. Her superiors offer to make her dream come true, but only if she finds the lost treasure before Jamys can. Working together, Chris and Jamys track the jewels through a shadowy maze of priceless artifacts, decadent secrets, and one ruthless opponent who can possess an immortal’s mind…and will stop at nothing to have Chris.

    ok

    I have loved the previous darken books but I found this book very difficult to follow. I had a difficult time keeping the characters separated from one another. I would have to read the paragraphs over and over to get a clear understanding of what and who was doing what.

    Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
    There’s something dark and intriguing about this world that keeps me coming back for more.” ~Under the Covers

    First of all, I blame my really bad memory sometimes that when I start a book I’m completely lost. I read the previous book in this series, but seems like ages ago. It took me a little while to get used to the world and to get to know the characters. But that was just me.

    Once the story got going and clicked in my head, I actually think it’s a bit faster paced than the previous book. Plus, I liked the young souls the hero and heroine of this book are. A little bit less doom and gloom, a bit more “I’m-going-after-the-love-of-my-life idealism”.

    Jamys Durand might look young (he was made Kyn at 17, and continues to look young), and might still be under his father’s rule, but he has big wants. He specifically wants a human woman, Chris, and to get her he has to have his own territory. This is where I think it would’ve probably helped with my enjoyment of this book if I had actually read the original Darkyn series and had seen how these two actually met.

    See, now Chris is working for Kyn Lord Lucan and wanting to become a Tresora so she can serve Jamys, the Kyn she fell in love with. She’s changed a lot about herself in the hopes to be qualified for that position. Meanwhile, Jamys was back home trying to figure out a way that he could come and make Chris his.

    A lot of Jamys story was briefly mentioned but not really talked about, so I found myself a bit cheated because I couldn’t come to care for the hero as much as I wanted. The heroine, I thought was strong, with a lot of spunk and personality. The story is a bit dark and for readers of the Darkyn series, it does go back into Kyn Lord Lucan and Samantha’s relationship.

    There is quite a bit of action in this one…even pirates! But although I like the authors’ writing a lot and I do enjoy being in this world, I keep finding that in order to fully enjoy this series, you really should read the one it’s originating from.

    Even so, I enjoyed this story. Like I said, there’s something dark and intriguing about this world that keeps me coming back for more.

    Great Novel! Highly Recommended!

    I have loved Jamys since Viehl introduced him in Evermore. I was so glad his story was continuing, especially with Chris along-side. Definitely check this out! You don't even have to read previous novels to appreciate this one along, but once you read one, you'll be hooked forever on the Darkyn!

    Good book

    A nice addition to the Darkyn mythology. I especially liked how the characters from the other novels were included.
