While Jamys' romance didn't get as much screen time as it could have and the conflict between him and his Chris was overcome by *gasp* them actually talking to each other to clear up any potential 'big misunderstandings', I still liked this latest Lord's of the Darkyn story. But then again I am a bit memory challenged so I didn't have extreme expectations for this pairing.

The non-romance part of the book was interesting - and frustrating since it messed with past pair Lucan and Samantha- and, as a warning, it did have some of Viehl's trademark darkness (enslaved women and 'bad guy coerced sex'). While Nightbred wasn't the best book in Viehl's Darkyn or Kindred series, for me it was still good enough to keep me reading this series.

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.

Three years ago, Jamys Durand and Christian (Chris) Lang fell in love, while Jamys was staying with Lucan and Sam. Thinking they are not worthy of the other, they still kept in contact through email over the years. Chris has given up her gothic looks and has done her best to become the most perfect tresora so she can give her oath to Jamys. Jamys in turn has gone back to his father's stronghold, and started training to become a warrior himself. He wants to be the suzerain of his own jardin, so he can take care of Chris and ask her to be his mortal wife.
Jamys knows it is time to claim Christ for his own. Richard Tremayne, The High Lord of all the Kyn, has announced a treasure hunt for some magical emeralds. The Kyn who finds them, and hands them over to the High Lord will get the reign over Ireland. And with all the Kyn fleeing Europe where the Brethren are persecuting them mercilessly, there are plenty of people in need of a new place to live. Before long, only the deserts and wastelands will be available in America. The influx of refugees from Europe is really causing trouble for Lucan and Samantha, and somehow, Lucan is not behaving as he usually does.
When Sam goes of on a new police investigation, Lucan is really unhappy about that, and tries to prevent her from doing her job. And when she seems to be having an admirer, he totally goes over the line when he decides to take the man out himself. Somehow, he has lost 5 hours of his live, and has no idea why Jamys and Chris are on the run from him, or why Sam is so very mad at him. But still it takes a long time before someone finds out what is wrong with Lucan and knows what to do about it ...

Both Jamys and Chris want to find the emeralds.

Lynn never lets me down, she always delivers a well told story that keeps me so interested that I have to hold myself back from reading it in one sitting. Her Darkyn series is great and I'm so happy that it is continuing. One of my favorite books was Dark Need featuring Samantha and Lucan so if was really nice to have those characters make another appearance in Nightbred.

Nightbred (2012) is the second Fantasy novel in the Lords of the Darkyn subseries, following Nightborn. In the previous volume, Richard and six Darkyn came to the Castillo de Loarre in Aragon, Spain, on October 12, 1307, to find another Darkyn. Cristophe ordered them to leave, yet Tremayne told him that Philip intended to move against the Knights Templar on the following day.

Brother Noir didn't care. He had given the scroll to a relative. Richard warned him that even family will betray him, but Cristophe said that his vengeance would reach from beyond the grave.

Later Richard had sent Korvel to recover the scroll. Korvel drove through Provence toward Garbia. He stopped at a restaurant for some wine and directions. The road was blocked by a large trailer truck, so he continued on foot to the Chateau Niege.

Simone was warned that strangers were approaching the Chateau. She rode down from the convent to the Chateau grounds. She found a dead main in the entrance and the bleeding butler inside.

In this novel, Jamys Durand is a Darkyn, turned as a teenager. He is the son of Thierry and Angelica Durand, but his mother died as a traitor to the Darkyn. Jamys has loved Chris for three years.

Christian Lang is a mortal. She loves Jamys and has been training as a tresora for the past three years to serve him. She is close to being granted tresora status by the Council.

Lucan is the suzerain of Fort Lauderale. He was formerly an executioner and assassin for the High Lord. Sam is his sygkenis.

Samantha Brown is the senior homicide detective in the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. Sam is Lucan's consort.
