I have been waiting for this story for a long time. In this return to the Darkyn world, King Richard Tremayne sends his seneschal Korvel to retrieve the Scroll of Falkonera. This scroll is a priceless treasure because it supposedly contains details on how to make an exilir that will grant immortality to a mortal.
When he arrives to the destination, he finds the place under attack and rescues a young "nun" named Simone Derien. Together, they set out to retrieve the stolen scroll, which each party having their own directives on what to do once the scroll has been recovered.

When King Richard loses contact with Korvel, he dispatches Gabriel Seran to rescue Korvel. That automatically includes Nicola Jefferson, Gabe's sykgenis (life companion--see Night Lost: A Novel of the Darkyn), a holy relic recovery expert. We see here that Nic is still struggling with her identity as kyn. She is still recovering from being tortured by a kyn, whereas Gab is still recovering from being tortured by humans. I was disappointed in that she still seemed self absorbed and secretive as I remember. She wasn't one of my favorite heroines. But I do always enjoy her sarcastic retorts regarding Richard Tremayne.

This book revealed the formation of obligation and service of Korvel as a seneschal to Richard. It also reveals Korvel's upbringing as well as Simone's. They were quite turbulent, so perhaps that is why they bonded so well together. Korvel and Simone's relationship reminded me a lot of Valentin & Lily's relationship in

I was a little leery about reading Nightborn: Lords of the Darkyn because I thought the Darkyn series had already ended but I'm happy to say that I enjoyed reading this story very much. I've always had a secret warm spot for Korvel and it was nice to see that caring about Alexandra didn't ruin his life. Simone Derien was a fantastic heroine; she was strong, independent, caring and really deserved to find happiness after her altogether rotten childhood. The secret behind the scroll kept me guessing until it was revealed and even then, there is more mystery to come. I was also glad to see more of Nicola and Gabriel as they are two of my favorites and I wondered what had happened to them. This book had Lynn Viehl's usual great writing and I found the dialogue to be absorbing and authentic; it really gave all the people well-rounded and likable personalities (except for the bad guys, of course). The imagery was fantastic and all my senses were involved in the story. (I even forgot that my dogs were outside until they made an incredible racket.) Altogether, this story gave me hours of pleasure -- with a few chills -- and I am happy to recommend it to other readers of this genre.

Nightborn by Lynn Viehl
Paranormal Romance -March 6th, 2012
4 stars

In Nightborn, Lynn Viehl returns to her widely popular Darkyn series about powerful and long-lived vampires who life secretly in the modern day world.

Korvel is the high lord's seneschal, his most trusted advisor and first in command. As part of the Kyndred his loyalty is unquestioned. When his lord puts him on mission to find a legendary and powerful scroll Korvel does not expect to have trouble. But he finds it in a beautiful and noble nun named Simone who knows more than she appears. Is she an innocent or his enemy?

Simone is human but one entrusted with the secrets of the Darkyn. For she is the protector of a magical scroll. One that is foretold to give its owner the capability of immortality. Her entire family has been entrusted with its safe keeping. But when they are compromised Simone soon discovers herself in danger. But her duty is clear -retrieve the scroll and prevent it from being misused. When she is saved by an unknown Darkyn named Korvel she finds herself enamored by his heroics and beauty. Her heart longs for Korvel. But she knows that her responsibility to protect the scroll and its secrets hold precedence. Can she make a choice between love and duty?

This was an action packed paranormal romance with mythical stakes. Both characters are strong and fiercely independent. They have been forged through sacrifice and severe suffering. So much that you want them to find some happiness. Both of their lives have only been duty to their lord or family. Neither has had the freedom to live each of their lives. The villain in this story is utterly ruthless and devious. He is jealous of Simone and wants her to suffer.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on March 6, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The High Lord of the Immortal Darkyn wants the alleged scrolls that contain the secrets to immortal life and the maps that lead to Templar treasure buried in the early fourteenth century. He sends his best warrior Korvel to France to obtain the scrolls.

As he drives the worst road in France, Korvel is warned others are making an attempt too. Soon he is attacked and hurt, but defeats his enemy, but is aware more await him. His quest leads Korvel to Simone, the daughter of the scroll's guardian. She seeks them too in order to return them to safety. As they team up with killers pursuing them, they begin to fall in love, but Simone fails to inform her new partner that once she obtains the scrolls, she is to kill Korvel.

The first Lords of the Darkyn romantic urban fantasy is a great entry inside the magnificent mythological world of Lynn Viehl. The storyline is fast-paced from the first assassination attempt until the final confrontation as readers will wonder whether Simone will complete the mission as ordered. Fast-paced, fans will appreciate the opening act in the new trilogy due to the strong protagonists who make the Viehl realm exciting to visit.
