Dark Peril (Carpathians, #21) by Christine Feehan




Dominic, of the Dragonseeker lineage—one of the most powerful of the Carpathian lines—is desperate to go to the very heart of the enemy camp and learn their plans.  There’s only one way to do so: ingest the parasitic blood of a vampire.  He knows that it is a mission from which there is no return. With little time before the blood takes effect, he’ll get the information he needs, relay it to the leader of the Carpathians, and go out fighting.  There is no more honorable way to end his life.

Solange Sangria is one of the last of the jaguar people, a royal pureblood, a dying species that cannot recover from bad decisions made over hundreds of years. She has long been alone, fighting to save the remaining shapeshifters from the hands of Brodrick the Terrible: her own father, who slaughtered her family and everyone she loved.  Wounded and weary, she plans one last battle, hoping to stop the man who has made an alliance with the vampires, accepting that she will not come out alive.

They are two warriors who have lived their lives alone.  Now, at the end of their time, they find each other—an obstacle neither can hope to ignore. (from author’s website)

First of all, I loved the ending.  I can see all kinds of possibilities for future books.  One wonderful thing about Christine Feehan is that she knows how to end a book.  She leaves me begging for the next one, but does not have cliffhangers.  The storylines for each book are wrapped up, even if there are threads still waiting to be followed.

To me, Zacarias’ book should be the next one.  We have already (probably) met his lifemate and there is a really interesting twist to this one.  Unfortunately, it will probably be two years before I find out.
