Customer Reviews

I love Lynn Viehls Darkyn series.

I was pleased with Jamy's story, but felt that there were some quantum leaps towards the end of the story line and it did not quite come together.

Lynn Viehl is a great writer and pens a wonderful story.

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.

Love all Lynn Viehl books: Darkyn/Kyndred & Lords of the Darkyn. Her books are all originals as far as I am concerned. Nobody has her imagination and creativity. Just finished Nightbound, her latest.

As her other book, she is a great author and her storyline is great. It keeps you guessing and it is hard to put the book down.

I have enjoyed every book in this series. Lynn Viehl is a good story teller, so even if I don't like the particular storyline, I enjoy reading her.
