The ancient Carpathian Gabriel has long been a guardian of both humans and Carpathians alike. But he is in danger of turning vampire, if he does not find his lifemate soon. His twin brother Lucien has already turned, and Gabriel knows he must honor the pact he made with his brother years ago, that one would destroy the other if he became a vampire. While walking along a Paris street, Gabriel is near exhaustion when he hears the melodious voice of his lifemate, Francesca, who he has long thought dead. Francesca is a Carpathian who has hidden from her people and from the vampires for all of her life. A healer, she blends in with the humans -- until she meets Gabriel. Can she give up her life to become Gabriel's soulmate, and save him from certain death?
Christine Feehan's Carpathian romance series feature a unique twist on the traditional vampire tales. Carpathians are alive, but they hunt vampires, and need to drink blood to survive. Protectors of the human race, they have a number of strange powers. In Dark Legend, we meet a powerful Carpathian female, who has managed to make her way with the humans among whom she lives. Francesca and Gabriel make a wonderful couple -- and the sparks really fly when they are together. Christine Feehan has done it again with this fantastic new entry into the popular Carpathian series.
