Needing repairs, the Solitaire is forced to land on Valtar, a planet inhabited by a winged vampire like race who need blood to survive. Their leader Lord Zurellius takes one look at her and knows she is his soul mate. He intends to go with her to find the pirates because they took his brother and his wife and he intends to rescue them. Zurellius is no ordinary Valtarian because he drinks predator blood which gives him extraordinary powers but also turns him into an ancient who has killing rages that he has under tight control for the moment. He fears he will one day lose control making him wonder if Mona is better off without him.
L.F. Hampton has written a fantastic futuristic romance involving a species that has vampiric like powers. The hero is afraid of what he has become since he drank predator blood but by doing what is forbidden, he turns into an excellent ruler who brought his people back from the edge of extinction. The heroine sees him when he turns yet though the changes shock her, it doesn't destroy what she feels for him. In between chasing space pirates, this couple finds the time to bond for a lifetime.
After being quite taken with its predecessor Winged Victory, I just had to read the sequel, Winged Darkness. I enjoyed the story with its darker hero Zurellius, who is solitary,and glorius with a barely leashed hidden predatory nature. His 'alien' heroine Mona - whom he calls 'hawk' - as a 'warrior' herself, is well suited to Zurellius. However, as a heroine Mona suffers a bit in that her focus is so bent on gaining revenge for the deaths of many people on her home colony world, including her husband and young son, that she does things which are really stupid - something that always bugs me in a heroine. This and the fact that the results of the big discovery in the previous book undoes some of the world building related to Zurellius' people, the Valtaire, that grabbed me in the first book - such a huge cultural shift in a mere seven years, when there are still way more males than females didn't feel quite right to me - meant that Winged Darkness didn't knock Winged Victory out of its spot as my favorite book in the series. (Also as a FYI, in Winged Darkness, author Hampton ups the sensuality of the romance a couple of notches from mild to moderate.Read more ›
