Synopsis:
Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries. But there are some things that never change.

His name is Mitro, the vampire Dax had hunted all these long centuries. Second in command to the prince of the Carpathian people he is the epitome of everything malevolent, and perpetrator of one of the most shocking killing sprees known to man - and beast. Even his friends and family weren't safe from Mitro's bloodlust. Neither was Mitro's lifemate, Arabejila, an extraordinary woman with extraordinary gifts. But now that Dax has re-emerged, so too has Mitro. The ultimate battle between good and evil has been re-engaged. Between Dax and Mitro, a violent game has begun - one that has marked Riley Parker, the last descendent of Arabejila, as the reward

My Review:
This was an amazing story to read.  It flowed fast, was action packed & very romantic.

The female lead was well written & although she had her moments of stubbornness & being obtuse she was also pretty realistic (for a paranormal book of course).  More modern than the other books & it was so awesome because the others were there as well as the Carpathian.  Gary was also in this one again & it was good to "see" him.  I loved reading about Jody's brother.  I just knew it would be awesome  when I saw that they were in the party going on the expedition, because with Gary there it had to be goo.

The male lead was also well written and even though he wasn't a 'modern' guy he definitely put many of the other Carpathians to shame, especially in the very beginning fight scenes between the dragons.  I loved the dragons being in this one & that the villain was cunning & he made the hunter work to kill him.  I loved the ritual that was inside, unlike the other Carpathian rituals this was new & it was well-written and I enjoyed reading this .

I'm glad the Carpathians are finally being dragged into the modern world, I still have a few books left to read I can't wait to get to them now. I'm almost done with the series, then I will be doing a series review as well so be on the look out for that.
