ARC Review: Dark Whispers by Christine Feehan

Vasilisa Sidkorolyavolkva is a Lycan of royal blood. She knows what is expected of her, but all she wants is to be out from under her family’s watchful eyes. There is a fire inside her that is building. A restlessness coupled with a sense of growing dread. Every day she feels the weight of the legacy passed down through generations. The prophecy that says a man will come to claim her as his mate, and that she will guard his soul. She knows nothing about him except that he is hers. But nothing seems real until the night she meets him in the flesh....

Afanasiv Belan is a Carpathian, an ancient one. In all the centuries of his existence, no one has ever affected him like Vasilisa. He can see into her mind and feel what is in her heart. They are so alike, warriors bound by honor and plagued by secrets. They both know they must reveal the darkest parts of their souls if they hope to survive and protect the ones they love.

But if they claim each other as lifemates, it will change them down to the bone. They will become something more—something feared by both of their kinds....
I haven't read a book by Feehan in a while. Like so many of the authors, I really enjoy a few fell through the cracks and I got behind on them. The second I started Dark Whisper I remembered why I like reading her so much. Feehan is wonderful and pulling you into a story and making you remember her characters. 

There are times when I remember something one of her characters did and think to myself that I need to get caught up on her. Well after reading Dark Whisper I pulled out a bunch of her books to do just that. 

Since I've gotten behind on her book I thought I might have trouble just picking up this one and reading it and knowing what has happened in this world. But I'm happy to say that wasn't the case. I was able to pick up on a few key things that made me feel like I was still part of the series and not lost as I read the book. 

I always love her characters and Dark Whisper was no different. I love how these two come together and stand with each other. There is a conflict between them at times but I think you'll like how they deal with it and move on. 

This is a wonderful story that made me want to go back to the books I haven't read and pick them up. I will say that if you haven't yet read any books in this series I wouldn't start with this one. Not that it's not a good story on its own it's just that so much happens in this world that you need to read and learn it book by book. Plus as a whole, the series reads better if you read them in order. 

If you're looking for a new series this spooky season this one is one I'd start. For her readers, I think you'll really enjoy Dark Whisper.
