Night Lost by Lynn Viehl

16 May

Favorite Line: “I’ve been looking for this sick cunt for ten years.” (283)

I’m madly applauding Lynn Viehl’s Night Lost. This is the best book in the series and I can’t wait for the next book. I love the characters and the twist at the end of the book. Hint: I kept feeling that something was off with Nick. For once, I also loved the fact that this book flip-flopped between the story of Alex and Michael and that of Nick and Gabriel. I enjoyed reading this book very much. I will definitely be reading it again.

Nick has been dreaming of a green man for years. Little does she know that the Green man is real. She finds him in a run down church chained with copper and decides to free him. Something about him appeals to her, and she refuses to let him ditch her. At the same time, Alexandra is in Richard’s (King of the Kyn) compound, held hostage and forced to search for a cure to the disease that is ravaging him. Many questions raised throughout the series are addressed in this book and wait until you find out what Richard is morphing into!

This book is descriptive as hell. Two words sum up the descriptions: Gabriel’s talent! Okay, I must admit at times I was a little grossed out by the mention of creepy-crawlers, but the pacing of the book made up for everything. Sometimes I’d get a little anxious when the story line jumped from one couple to the next, but then I got hyped to the different story line. Overall, this book is taking the top spot on my keeper shelf.

    Rosie- We have to wait how long for the next installment? I’ve got high hopes for it.

    Christine- The first book in the Darkyn series is If Angels Burn. The characters from that book are in each of the next three books in the series as well. So in order you’ve got:
    If Angels Burn
    Private Demon
    Dark Need
    Night Lost
    The first and last book on this list are the best in my opinion.

    Hey Scoop according to her blog the next book is EVERMORE and is due out in Jan. 2008. All things considered, not a bad wait.

    BTW, her blog is excellent for aspiring writers. She’s very supportive. Here’s a link for the curious:

    christine- No prob. They’re great books.

    Rosie- I have her blog on my blog list. I like the different search engines she’s posted and the freeware. I’ve never tried to talk there, though. I usually just stalk. Am I wrong for not wanting to wait that long for it?
