Dominic is of the Dragonseeker line and has drunk the vampire blood that is infested with parasites, in order to infiltrate the enemy camp and learn its plans.  He has very little time once the parasites go to work and this will be a one-way mission.  He plans to go in fast, relay the information to the Carpathian leader living in the area and go out fighting.  Dominic is looking forward to ending his life in  an honourable way, and then he meets her.  His life mate.

Solange Sangria is the only pure-blood female left of the jaguar people.  The jaguar people are a dying species, with only brutal males left now.  They kidnap and brutalise women able to shift, in the hopes of breeding more jaguar people.  Solange fights to stop them, discovering their secret compound in the jungle.  They have made a deal with the vampires to compile a database of women with magical talents.  The jaguar men can find new breeders, the vampires can destroy Carpathians…..

Xavier has been vanquished but his evil survives.  The vampires are still committed to wiping out the Carpathians.  Her cousins being married to Carpathians, Solange knows their struggles and after meeting Dominic in the jungle, decides to fight with him in the final stand…..

The 18th book in the Carpathian saga is another exciting read from Christine Feehan.  There is action, adventure, good guys winning, a bit of romance but this is secondary to the story.  I’m still hunting down the first 16 to read – this series is great!

A short Carpathian vocab list is in the back, along with healing chants and short history of the Carpatian people.  Very detailed and interesting.
