Christine Feehan- Dark Legend

He woke deep within the ground, and the first sensation he felt was hunger. An overwhelming hunger for blood that demanded satisfaction. But as he hunted the dark streets of Paris for prey, a voice called to him, soothing, calming, giving him the strength to control his craving.  Francesca Del Ponce was a healer, a woman who radiated goodness as powerfully as the sun did light. But surely his obsession with her would turn him as his twin brother had turned, leaving the world with two monsters instead of one. Though he knew she would be like hot silk in his arms, though he knew the taste of her would be addictive, he feared for her life and his soul if he took her. Then with one mind-shattering vow she gave herself - "I offer freely, without reservation, I offer my life for yours as is my right" - and with a firestorm of long-forgotten feelings, he glimpsed salvation.
I liked this book because of the sense of humor that Gabriel has with Francesca and Sklyer, this man was buried for 200 years and popped up knowing something or someone was out there waiting on him. He thought his twin brother has turned vampire or undead and he knew he was the only one that could kill his brother Lucian. The twins are known to be the oldest Carpathian males alive.  Francesca knew from a very early age that Gabriel was her lifemate after seeing him and Lucian walk through her village but she thought he was dead for many years and was on the verge of meeting the sun herself. When he found her at last she explained to him how she saw him years before and how he looked back at her but kept on going with Lucian. Back then all the twins wanted to do was to hunt the undead and protect Carpathians and humans alike.  The ending of this book really surprised me and honestly no others in this series have done that.
My Rating: 4
