"There is always a price to pay."
So Darius warned her when she accepted a position with his traveling troupe. And gazing mesmerized at the merciless slash of his mouth, the implacable resolve on his face, the soulless emptiness of his black eyes, Tempest was afraid to ask what it was.
She had always been different, apart from others. From the moment his arms closed around her, enveloping her in a sorcerer's spell, Darius seemed to understand her unique gifts. But did his kiss offer the love and belonging she sought, or a danger more potent than his own panthers?
Somewhere deep inside herself, Tempest, realized she knew the answer. She had no choice but to accept the velvet stroke of his tongue, 'submit to the white-hot heat piercing her skin, welcome an erotic pleasure like no other...

I am SO glad this series went right on over to Darius. I really came to like him in Dark Challenge, and I kinda hoped he would hook up with the tough chick that would become the team mechanic. I mean, seriously? That was just simple math that this ad would add a woman to the mix. And gosh, was Tempest awesome. Okay, she was so naive at times that it was borderline stupid, but she was very adorable, and I like me a redhead -- just like Darius, obviously. 😉 Alright, so let's substituve naive with dreamy-eyed, although she should be alot more skeptic with all she had been through in her life so far. Colder. On the other hand, since she is a Carpathian mate, she needs to be all light and warmth... Yeah, no, I didn't like the balance of her, but that doesn't mean I disliked her. On the contrary, I am very concerned if she is ever going to get used to sleeping underground... *worry*

Storywise I really liked the new group and the new character editions. Cullen as a human in this group... I am very curious! First Aiden with his household, then Gregori, and now this group has one on their team as well. I like it, and I am so excited to find out when they come in handy in a big way. =) Other than that, Darius and Tempest really made this fun to read, they were so different, but of course also Barack and Syndil make a very, very interesting pair and have good scenes in this. The action was nice in this one, too. There was quite a lot of it, together with plot, which made the romance rather... well, human-like instead of all-out Carpathian, but I liked it just like that.
