Book Review 📖

A Novel of the Darkyn …. Night Lost by Lynn Viehl

Back cover ….. 

Abandoned by his fellow Darkyn, Gabriel Seran is in continual torment as a prisoner of the religious zealots known as the Brethren. His only hope for rescue lies in Nicola Jefferson, a thief seeking a holy relic-and connected to Gabriel in more ways than she can possibly imagine…

My review …. 

This is book 4 in a 7 book series. And I don’t think it will spoil it too much. 

Basically Gabriel has been caught by the resident bad guys in the series (The Brethren) he’s been tortured for the whereabouts of his kin, but he won’t give them up (even though he thinks they’ve forsaken him) 

Blinded and walled up for eternity, Gabriel seeks comfort in his dreams. That is where he meets his angel, his only joy (but Gabriel can’t feel real joy or pain anymore) 

They meet in the dream, but he can’t tell her where he is so he can be rescued. He only holds onto life for her (he hopes they can meet before he finally dies) 

The Darkyn are vampires, they no longer drain their prey, but take enough to survive. They all have unusual talents (different from the usual sparkly vamps) 😉

Nicola is a relic hunter, she’s after a particular piece and vengeance for the death of her family. 

She is numb to the real world, her only escape is in her dreams. She meets a green man (yes literally green) she isn’t frightened of him, but she is wary. 

Together they find each other, and hunt for the relic, and are on the run from the brethren. She hopes to finds justice, he hopes to find out why he was never rescued by his kind.

There are a few surprises. And I liked the fact Nicola had no intention of falling for Gabriel (she was just going to rescue him and go) and right up to the end you don’t know if she stays. 

I’m definitely going to read the rest of the series. And the spin off ?!?! Who knows 😉

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
