[Review]: Dark Lycan by Christine Feehan

Title: Dark Lycan
Author: Christine Feehan
Series: Carpathians
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 3, 2013

Summary: Tatijana of the Dragonseekers spent centuries encased in ice with her sister, trapped in limbo between life and death, never speaking to a soul other than those who tormented her. Now, she has been freed from her frozen prison by an unknown descendant. Awakened in human form, Tatijana yearns to explore the modern world in which she now lives -- a world with more mysteries than she is prepared for.

Fenris Dalka has returned to the Carpathian Mountains after a long absence to be with his brother. He is scarred by centuries of battle, and every hard-won victory. But the real reason for his return home could prove deadly if discovered by the wrong man -- or woman. Upon his arrival, he is compelled by a beautiful and enigmatic stranger who carries the scent of fresh earth, of forest, of the night itself.

In time Tatijana and Fenris will discover all that unites them -- their secrets and pasts, their predators, and the hot flush of passion that stirs their souls. Yet just as surely, seduced into the silvery darkness of a full-moon night, they'll also discover everything ancient and evil that exists to destroy them.

Thoughts: The Carpathian books were one of the first paranormal romance novels I picked up. Dark Prince is still one of my favorite books.  I have loved most all of the books in this series, but the last few books that have come out have just be okay for me. Especially the De La Cruz brothers, I've had a hard time getting into their stories. Dark Lycan was and excellent read. The best one since Dark Celebration was released. I was excited to see that Feehan brought the story back to the Carpathian Mountains.  This installment felt like some of the first books to me, plus seeing some familiar faces was great. Now I'm eager to read Dark Wolf featuring Dimitri and Skyler's story. It's been a long time coming.

Score: 4 Stars
