One of her better stories

I was pleasantly surprised the newest installment of Viehl's Darkyn/Takyn series kept me interested and entertained. So many of my favorite series tend to disappoint me the longer the series continues. Add to that the fact that lately I've been terribly disappointed by most of my selections from Audible lately....and wished I could get my credit back! Not the case here.

Viehl has kept this series fresh for me by bringing in the Takyn and a whole new group of characters while keeping the old ones (the Darkyn) involved. I like most of the Takyn books better than her later Darkyn books. Keep it up! Can't wait to get a little more information about how, why, and by whom the Takyn were created.

If you liked Gabriel & Nicola, Sam and Lucan, Rowan, and Samuel, you should enjoy this installment of the Darkyn/Takyn series. (Yes, I consider it an ongoing project and never really felt the Darkyn series ended). Now where can I find her Novellas I missed (Incarnatio, Midnight Blues)? And has anyone read her teen books...Youngbloods?

Really good

I've read all of Viehl's Darkyn books and the last two fell down a bit. This one was very good. I listened to the whole thing in one fine day off.

The narrator was prefect. She did a wonderful job with all the voices.
