Prince of the Night
He came to her in the night, a predator ─ strength and power chiseled his features. The seduction was deep and elemental; he affected her soul. His need. His darkness. His terrible haunting lonliness. Her senses aroused, she craved the dangerous force of his body. Burned for him. And he had only touched her with his mind.

Lady of the Light
She came to him at dawn, his bleakest hour. As the beast raged inside him, threatening to consume him, he vented his centuries-old despair in an anguished cry that filled the waning night. And she answered, a ray of light, piercing his darkness. A beautiful angel. Her compassion, courage, and innocence awakened in him an exquisite longing and tenderness. He knew he must possess her, for only she could tame his savage side and lift the dark shadow from his soul. Apart they were desolate, bereft. Intertwined physically and spiritually, they could heal one another and experience an eternity of nights filled with love.

If there was ever a book written with so much passion, I say that Christine Feehan owns it. The fire and emotion in her books is breathtaking and you just cannot put it down. True, she's very graphic and meant for mature readers, this book about love and the dark world of vampires gives new insight into our blood sucking friends.

The series starting off with the prince of the Carpathians people is a great way. There is such raw emotion with Mikhail and you can feel the desperation in him to help his people. And then there's Raven, the woman who can bring him from this darkness he feels.

The Carpathian race is dying and becoming what we know of as the vampires. Apparently these blood suckers are different from what most are use to: they need the soil and sleep on the ground, the males start losing emotion and feeling without a lifemate or their soul mates basically.

Anyways, there is all this family drama surrounding Mikhail's life that could match any soap operas, and when Raven is dragged into this of course she would be a little resistant. What I like that Christine Feehan does best is that she takes these characters emotions and she literally drills them into the readers head. Sure, it goes on and on and on about what they feel, but really a lot of this series is based off the emotions, because these are men that have lived thousands of years, and there really isn't anyway to describe it than emotion.

And yes, there is action is this book and the other like thirty books to come after this one. It has been a long time coming trying to review this book, because it's hard to say what it was like to read it when you just read a lot of complexities that come with this new world. Though, if anyone is in charge of making vampires sexy, it is hands down Christine Feehan.
