Genres: Romance , Fantasy Veins of lightning lit the clouds, dancing whips of white-hot energy illuminating the midnight sky. The earth rumbled and rolled, unsettled and flinching as the creature clawed its way through the soil to burst into the air, instantly fouling every living thing it touched. Leaves shriveled and blackened. The air vibrated with alarm. The vampire settled to earth, turning its head this way and that, listening, waiting, its cunning mind racing, its rotten heart beating with a mixture of triumph and fear.

The Carpathians have such a complex folklore foundation, and I like seeing it unfold in each book. They really are delicious heroes. I think that this one might be one of my favorites. Gary Sanders who becomes a friend and ally to the Carpathians has a cameo, and it was fun to see this adorable nerd again. Joie is a kickbutt heroine in her own right, a great match with Traian. This book is actually quite horrific.
The vampires are scary and downright disturbing and disgusting. They give an ugly visual picture to creepy crawly. While Traian is one of the most formidable Carpathian warriors and hunters, he has his hands full when he gets caught in the middle of a nest of master vampires who have formed an alliance. Joie forms a mental bond with Traian and that bond causes her to track him down to the ice caves in the Carpathian mountains.
In the process, the Sanders discover a long lost familial relationship to the secretive mages. I loved how the Carpathian universe is expanding to other species. The mage aspect of the story is fun. The battles with the vampires would have me quaking in my books on a big movie screen. But at the same time, they were highly exciting.
It looks like Dark Promises is about Gary and Gabrielle. I hoping that Jubal will have a storyline in this book. For a short novel, this packed an exciting punch!
