Even though I don't enjoy the stories involving the evil mages--such as Xavier,and his two brothers-- I did enjoy learning about Razven, and his gentle half-mage daughter, Lara. Also, I enjoyed how Nicolas De La Cruz was Lara's lifemate, and was able to help save the Dragonseeker Clan...a clan I'd love to learn more about.

I love the way Christine ties the CARPATHIAN "FAMILY" together no matter what the problem. I am into book 20 and have loved everyone..

Great background knowledge about the world of the madge... This book tells about the rivelries that brought about the downfall of the carpathiens.

A wonderful link from previous novels. And what a unique challenge to the lifemates! More and more the novels are tying each other together.

This is a series that leaves you hungering for more. But you do not have to read it in order. It helps but is not a must.

Born into a world of ice, and slave to her evil father, Lara Calladine knew only paralyzing fear as a child—and escaping with her mysterious gifts unbroken would be the only way to survive her great Carpathian heritage as a Dragonseeker. Human, yet mage, she was of the blood of three species yet belonged to none. She walked her chosen path alone, guided by the wisdom of her aunts—to blend in and let no one know of her ancestry and powers. And never trust anyone. For beyond the frozen hell of her youth was a world of even greater mysteries and dangers.

Today Lara is the leading expert in the field of ice cave study around the world and the healing microorganisms that thrive in them. She’s also in search of something else: the source of her nightmares—the cold dark corners of her childhood. Only one man has the will and the powers to help her: Nicolas De La Cruz, for whom centuries of hunting and killing have long since taken their toll. Dangerous and arrogant, he still longs to feel sensual love without the hunger for blood. Now, between Lara and Nicolas, a tenuous trust has emerged, and a passion neither has ever known before as a melody of dark promise begins.

But as each scales the treacherous land of the Carpathian in search of their past, they also harbor a secret that could save or destroy them. And as each may be desirous of a new beginning as lifemates, they are also haunted by the unknown dangers of a dark curse.
