Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mutants, vampires, and undead Aztecs populate Viehl’s compelling fourth novel of the Kyndred (after January 2011’s Frostfire), a series spun off from her popular Darkyn books. Genetics company GenHance treated human children with vampire DNA, creating the Kyndred, and now wants to kill them to study their mutated genes. Another mysterious villain studies them in a different fashion: by kidnapping Kyndred, taking them to an island paradise, and forcing them to mate and interbreed. Kidnap victims Charlotte Marena and Samuel Taske find that the required sex is no hardship, and Viehl’s steamy love scenes allow the pair moments of pleasure between attempts to uncover the villain and make plans to escape. The swift pace and hot attraction between the leads combine for a fast read that will encourage readers to seek out Viehl’s backlist. (Nov.)

GenHance spliced normal human children with vampire DNA. That genetic mix led to the creation of the Kyndred. Now GenHance continues part two of their research. They want the Kyndred for study dead or alive. Meanwhile someone else has a different methodology when it comes to studying the DNA of the Kyndred; this scientist kidnaps the Kyndred and takes his victims to a remote Mexican barrier island where he forces them to interbreed. San Francisco medic Charlotte Marena and Takyn protector Samuel Taske are snatched to this isle. They are attracted to one another though she distrusts him as he knows too much about her and she (and he) enjoys the sex between them, which frightens her. As they plot to escape, his power has vanished so she is their only hope to identify and safely flee from their sinister host. The fourth Kyndred romantic urban fantasy (see Shadowlight, Dreamveil and Frostfire) is a terrific suspense thriller enhanced by the Aztec location. The story line is fast-paced whether it is a sexual interlude or a desperate escape attempt. Readers will appreciate this exciting tale as the overarching theme moves forward with death and life.

The first and third book had strong stories. The second book was somewhat weak, but tied in nicely. Would have loved to see more role play from the Darkyn. It seems as though they may appear in the fourth Takyn series, hopefully! Good writing though!
