I don't know if you know but...I am a huge fan of Christine Feehan books. I have read her ghost series, carpathian series, Drake Series, and Sisters of the heart series.
The carpathian series has a butt load of books and its been quite some time now that she has been building up some suspense for Dimitri's and Skylars story. In her series she has different couples that are called lifemates and tells their story. You get to meet different characters as well and can kind of get the hint of which ones will get together and then you have to wait for their book to come out.
THIS IS THE ONE I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR FORERVER!
I was so excited when it came out. Before Dark wolf came out she was able to give some background on each character so you know what is going on before this book came out. Needless to say you can just start in the middle because there is a lot of history that is told from book to book. So if you are planning to start this series make sure you start from Dark Prince.
This is a bit of a spoiler because there is no way I can start reviewing this without giving some back story or else you will be lost. So through out the series we are told that Skylar is pretty powerful for her age and for being human. She was also adopted by a very powerful family so she is basically very protected because they are not only powerful, but feared from pretty much everybody who knows them. She is the life mate of Dimitri but he hasn't claimed her yet because she is too young, He is centuries old while she is barely a teen. Technically she is still a baby in the eyes of their people. In the beginning of the book he is captured by the lycans. The lycans and the carpathians do not get along at all because if their races were to mix then a new species is born and they would be stronger than both races. Dimitri and his brother are both this mixed race which is why Dimitri is captured and being tortured. This book is very action packed and Christine did not let me down. I read this book about 4 times already. It is a very romantic book as well. I would give it a gazillion stars if I could.
Go read it!!
