In a thrilling Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a woman fights to free herself from the grip of the vampire trying to possess her...
In a beautiful compound hidden away from the world, Emeline Sanchez tries to blunt the pain that has wracked her body ever since her terrifying ordeal in the labyrinth beneath the city—when she was forced to exchange blood with an evil master vampire.
Now, it’s his voice that haunts her...that calls to her in the dark...that never lets her rest. And while the children that she helped to free from his clutches struggle to heal, watched over by their Carpathian protectors, Emeline knows one thing: She must sacrifice herself to keep them all from harm...
This had been her worst nightmare, the dream occurring over and over for the last month. Emeline knew she shouldn’t run to her house. If she did, the Carpathian known as Dragomir would die. He always died saving her. She’d tried to avoid this destiny. She’d made certain not to meet him, never to speak to him, yet here she was, forced to make a split-second decision. If she didn’t make it to her house, Vadim would have her again and there would be no stopping him.
“Don’t follow,” she pleaded, rushing up her steps. She knew Dragomir would. He was one step behind Vadim. She knew coming after Dragomir was Vadim’s army of horrible creatures. Vadim had already weakened her, taking her blood. Her neck burned, a fierce, intolerable pain that spread through her like wildfire.
Vadim waved his hand and her door stuck as she tried to jerk it open. She turned to face him, despair moving through her. Despair. Sorrow. Fear—although she was almost beyond fear. Back to the door, she slid down until her bottom hit the porch, knees up. She already knew exactly how the scenario would play out. Dragomir was on the stairs, and Vadim swung around to face him.
Emeline forced herself to look at the ancient warrior. He was the opposite of everything Vadim was. Roped muscles, scars, waist-length salt-and-pepper hair. He looked rugged. Tough. Scary. He had tattoos drifting up his neck so he looked a little like a modern-day outlaw biker. Vadim, despite his head being blown off repeatedly, always managed to restore his flawless, model looks. At first glance, one would be terrified of Dragomir, not Vadim, and that would be a very big mistake.
Her breath caught in her throat as Dragomir continued right up the stairs toward Vadim. She wanted to close her eyes, but she couldn’t. She’d witnessed his death over and over in her nightmare. She always woke up when he went down and she never saw the outcome, only that he sacrificed his life for hers. She felt the least she could do was watch. More—this time, she planned to aid him.
Her hand dropped to the pocket of the long dress she wore. Once before, after continually trying new things in her dreams, she’d changed the outcome of the future. She was determined to do the same this time, or die trying. Time slowed down. Just as she knew it would, the air exploded with more vampires, and as they appeared, the Carpathian hunters joined in the fight.

Oh, how I love Christine Feehan! She has always been able to keep this reader wanting increasingly more when every turn of the page! The way she brings the readers into the story almost as if she had written them into the story line right along with the other characters. It truly is amazing just how easily she brings the story to life with every word she has written.
Dragomir has lived centuries with knowing that there was a life mate out there in the world for just him alone, however after so many centuries he had finally found the one person that could bring the light back into his world, but how was he going to be able to convince her of that? Could he be able to convince her that she was his and his alone? Could he be able to keep her safe even without knowing how to not be controlling? There were many things that would have to be done but there was nothing that was going to keep Dragomir from claiming Emeline. He had finally found her and wasn’t going to let her go without a fight and he was more than determined to keep her not matter what.
Emeline had grown up without a family out on the streets, she didn’t know how to belong to a family although she wanted desperately to belong to a family. Emeline had long become accustomed to keeping her head down and to herself. Within the compound that she was staying at there were children she enjoyed watching when it was daylight outside but at night she would keep herself locked up inside her house. She had many secrets she didn’t want to get out to become public knowledge. What a hot man he was! Dragomir made her both terrified as well as inspires an unusual reaction within her. Could he really be the only one for Emeline? Could it be possible?
There are always many things within a Christine Feehan book, adventure, drama, rescuing, as well as romance. If there was anything to be done in your house, cleaning or cooking I would suggest ordering pizza for the family or yourself and just getting into a comfortable chair or couch with a drink and lose yourself within the wonderful book, DARK LEGACY, by the wonderful author Christine Feehan.
I was given the book in exchange for my honest review.
