Happy Wednesday! I have been reading the book Dark Blood and I’m about half way done. I’ve decided to do a quick first impressions post on what I have read so far and what I expect towards the end of the book.
Dark Blood is book #26 out of a series of 31books in the “Dark” series written by Christine Feehan. This book follows the story of the hunter Zev who is a hunter and Lycan. Zev finds himself in a strange place with a beautiful woman within reach of him. Not knowing what has happened or how he came to be in this place, Zev knows that he is injured and dying. What is going on? Who is this mysterious woman? And why has the “Ancients” spoke to Zev in a language he couldn’t understand before. Why did they refer to his bloodline as “Dark Blood?”
Currently I’m about a quarter of the way through the book and I love it so far. I wanted to start reading a fantasy book to gain a better understanding of the fantasy world. Currently I am writing a fantasy story myself so the more I read, the better I am able to write my story. At least that’s what I’ve read lol. So far the scene has been set, the characters (at least the protagonists) have been established, the conflict has been revealed (although I feel as though there’s more on the way) and the glimpse of romance, intrigue and magic has been hinted at. I’m really enjoying the story so far and every chance I get, I continue reading.
I expect to uncover more answers about what the main conflict of the book is. Currently, the characters have awaken Zev because they believe he is the only answer to stopping a full out war between the Lycans and Carpathians. Zev is badly injured and on the brink of releasing his inner wolf, someone needs to provide him with answers or there will be heck to pay! I expect to find out what happened to Zev’s family and what the true meaning of the term “Dark Blood” is. It has been mentioned twice so far, once by the ancients and once by Zev questioning his allies. Both times Zev has walked away with more questions then answers and a room full of people staring at him. I’m expecting there to be a huge battle, even though Zev is supposed to bring peace. I am expecting to find out more about the healing and magical abilities of members of his brotherhood.
So far I am really enjoying this book and can’t wait to finish it. I think I will write one more impression post when I’m farther along and culminate this series with the final book review. Thank you for reading my first impressions, have a great Wednesday!
