The wolf Lucien takes Jaxx to safety because he knows this feisty human is his life-mate. After living on the edge of the dark, he, like his twin brother before him, has finally found the woman that enables him to see colors in a world of black and white. Though Jaxx is drawn to the Carpathian she wonders if he is the magnet that brings the monster back to finish the incomplete slaughter he started years ago or is he the monster?

The latest Carpathian vampire romance is an exciting entry that employs a human to refresh the tale of Lucien. The return of Lucien's sibling Gabriel and soul mate Francesca add a nice touch, as the audience will relish seeing them support the lead characters. Lucien remains a powerhouse of morality and Jaxx is a fine intrepid individual who is his perfect foil, but seems more Carpathian than human. DARK GUARDIAN is a wonderful novel that enhances the Christine Feehan universe completing the twist from DARK LEGEND with the strong story of one of the darker Carpathians.
