In the 23rd installment of the Dark series by Christine Feehan, Dark Storm, welcome to the world like no other... of the Carpathians. For Riley Parker and her mom, they went to the Peruvian rain forest for a journey. For others, it was to find a precious rare flower. But they experienced an evil like no other. Riley encountered tragedy, when one of their porters killed her mother. While she experienced sorrow for losing her mother, she didn't expect to come across a Carpathian hunter named Danutdaxton "Dax", who was after an ancient vampire named Mitro. With many perils of the rain forest, Riley learned more about Dax as her lifemate and fell in love with him. Together they would take on Mitro, before they would embark on their new life together.
This was a fascinating and compelling paranormal romance. This also had a bit of eroticism and urban fantasy elements to it as well. I have to admit, since it's been a few years, since I last read a book in the series, the fighting scenes in the novel are a bit graphic, gory and gruesome to get through. I loved the South American rain forest backdrop and how Riley used her white magic to help fight good with evil. I loved how Dax shifted into a dragon and flew in the skies. He sorta dreamy in a way. This was well-written with some dark elements of drama, intense passion and plenty of action.
