Par Lady Lama TOP 500 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 28 mars 2010
Format: Poche
Le premier tome de la série "Darkyn" (7 tomes pour le moment, par encore traduits en français semble-t-il), surfant sur la mode de la bit litt, est assez prometteur.

L'auteur évoque les vampires sous l'angle de la maladie : les vampires seraient des humains qui auraient contacté un virus durant l'épidémie de peste noire au Moyen-Age. Ceux-ci se cachent des humains et ont développé une société structurée avec un "high lord", des seigneurs (=un par pays) et des suzerains (=un par état américain). Leur principale menace n'est pas leur mode de nourriture (ils ont trouvé un moyen de se procurer du sang discrètement, sans tuer les humains) mais une société religieuse secrète qui les combat, les Frères de la Lumière, créée au sein de l'église catholique et possédant de solides assises au Vatican.

Ce tome est plaisant à lire, d'abord parce qu'on découvre un monde nouveau, et surtout parce que l'histoire d'amour entre les héros est bien menée. L'héroïne, Alexandra, est un chirurgien plastique qui tient à ses raisonnements scientifiques et qui est très indépendante. Elle est contactée par un homme mystérieux qui aurait besoin d'une opération chirurgicale urgente. Celui-ci, le héros, Michael Cyprien (oui, le nom de famille est nul), est un vampire de plus de 700 ans, responsable de la communauté des vampires des Etats-Unis. Il tient bien sûr à ses traditions et cherche à passer le joug à Alexandra, qui ne tient pas à se laisser faire.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Series gets better and better with each book -- keep reading! 30 mars 2010
Par Shannon C. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
After reading the book, at first I thought it was more of a dark urban fantasy with some romance, rather than a paranormal romance as it's marketed. I didn't think there was enough relationship development between Michael and Alex.(I suspect that might be the reason for so many mixed reviews--the book missed its target market.) However, now that I've read more of the series, I learned that the author continues to develop Michael & Alex's relationship in future books--they are key characters throughout the series. The books get better and better as the series progresses. The first book was good, while others were great. So keep reading!

I enjoyed the well written, fast paced storyline and the world building around being a Darkyn. I liked the main characters and supporting cast. I would have liked more development of the relationship between Michael and Alexandra in book one, however was ok with their continued story in later books. Viehl does a great job creating many twists and turns in the plotlines as the series progresses, as well as introducing appealing new characters. I also really liked Samantha (a cop) and Lucan (a former vampire assassin turned master), who show up in the third Darkyn book and we meet them again in the first Kyndred book. The author also does a good job of creating scary bad guys.

Didn't do a plot synopsis, since that was already done well in a lot of other reviews. All in all, a good read. Here's the reading order according to Goodreads:

If Angels Burn (Darkyn, #1)
Private Demon (Darkyn, #2)
Dark Need (Darkyn, #3)
Night Lost (Darkyn, #4)
Evermore (Darkyn, #5)
Twilight Fall (Darkyn, #6)
Stay the Night (Darkyn, #7)
Shadowlight (Kyndred, #1 - spinoff series)

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I am still wondering what happen? 13 juin 2013
Par Ana Maria Rivera Casco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
The story had great potential if you are into paranormal reading :vampires-human-priests triangle, but to call it a paranormal romance would be far fetch...there is NO romance between this two characters, they are cold and dead, and one of them at least is the vampire and it suppósed to be. A surgeon to vampires? geezuusss that was pretty hard to digest and I read fantasy novels all the time! I like the gender because it makes your mind fly but with this book I found myself thinking WTF!
THe heroine had her character but I think in the process of showing us she was tough lost all her emotions and that wonderful sense of being a woman! The male part could had use a bit more detail too, but at least he played his role as a dead 700 year old vampire and still manage to show so much emotion comparing it to the good doctor ALexandra.
And what's with the Anne RIce reference all over the book? I hated that too.....at least her vampires and human counterparts have some emotions even if they are dead !

2.0 étoiles sur 5 About a 2.75 - Not as Bad as a 2 but don't see it as 3 either 17 novembre 2011
Par Rare Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Unfortunately, I would advise anyone considering this series to go ahead and buy the first in this series as there are too many different opinions and it depends on what you are looking for in a novel. Maybe UF or paranormal reader might like this series but don't look for much romance or heat.

My opinion - It just was not good enough to waste my time or money on any of the other novels in this series or even this author.

Pros:
- Concept was good
- World building was creative and good
- A reader could tell that the author did do her homework when it came to surgical procedures
- There was a lot of character development
- It could be consider a good UF
- I did force myself to read the entire novel.
- No major editing problems

Cons:
- If your looking for something on the lines of the Black Dagger Brotherhood or even Wing Slayer novels - keep looking - this series is not even close.
- Heat factor is mild to chilly with no warming in the forecast
- While there was character development, it still felt flat. I never cared or was drawn to any of the characters. I read the words but nothing really drew me in to care about the characters.
- Downright Weird - Neither the male or female protagonists really gave any indications about romantic feelings about each other and then are in "love" the first time they have sex??????? at almost the end of the novel- really? - that did not compute. And, I've heard of slow build ups but there was no build up to the sex even if it happened toward the very end of the novel. More of "this is suppose to be romance so I need to get them in bed and claim to be in love" type of thing thrown in toward the end.

It was an interesting read but nothing to get excited about. While the novel is a full length novel with a lot of development in world building and characters - it still fell flat. There was nothing that drew me in. Usually, I can get lost in a good novel, immersed in the world created, attached to the characters, feel the heat and emotions but to me - this novel was just a bunch of words connected together - very well - but still - just words.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark, Unique Urban Fantasy Series Premiere 31 mars 2010
Par Tracy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is such an underrated book - but I've noticed from the reviews, probably because it's been promoted as a paranormal romance. That's truly a shame, because it is in NO way a paranormal romance. What it IS is a deep, dark, sometimes ugly, definitely treacherous but imaginative world with complex and flawed characters leading extraordinary lives.

Alex is a reconstructive surgeon stolen off the streets of Chicago and brought to Michael, the tragically scarred Darkyn who was captured and tortured by the Brethren, a sect of religious fanatics out to destroy the race of beings who survived...in a manner of speaking...the Black Plague. Restoring Michael leads Alex down a path of loss and pain and change for both of them.

The plot of the story has been covered in other reviews so I won't rehash it, but will admit I had some difficulty getting into this book and I felt a bit overwhelmed with the story at first. I felt it introduced the main characters of both factions - Darkyn and Brethren - and Alex and her estranged brother, John - without really building the world or explaining what was going on. There was terminology used between characters but not explained to the reader, and quite a bit of French treated the same. At times I felt confused and a little lost, but I stuck with it and I'm very glad I did. Things do eventually become clearer, and are explained a little better the further you go into the book. Once I did start to grasp the mythos of the Darkyn and some of their political structure and spent a bit more time with the characters, I ended up really liking and appreciating the depth and breadth of the story and the world. I can't say I have a total grasp of the Darkyn's political and societal structure, and there are questions that AREN'T answered in this book - though for a series beginner, that's not at all uncommon - but by the book's end I was satisfied that enough had been explained and the world fleshed out enough to be very satisfied with the read.

There were several aspects of the book I liked very much - Alex's character in general and any of the scenes where she was dealing with the Darkyn family she helped were a particular favorite, as well Phillipe, Michael's Seneschal. He was definitely my favorite secondary character. There were also a couple of really nifty plot twists towards the end that I in NO way saw coming and I like when a book catches me off guard that way. All in all, it wasn't a completely comfortable read...it's very dark and has several truly torturous themes...but I ended up liking it a lot more than I did at the beginning. I will be continuing the series, but I'll hold off recommending this one to paranormal romance fans. Dark Urban Fantasy fans would dig it if they can be patient with the beginning, but those looking for a feel good HEA may want to go elsewhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a typical romance 17 février 2010
Par T. Chandler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
What can I say besides that fact that I loved reading this book? It is not a typical, lovey, dovey romance; it is actually an introduction to a romance that is gradually being established and is based on more than just physical lust. This book is also an intro to the Darkyn and thier lives. Fans of typical erotica will probably be frustrated by this book because there aren't many major "coupling" scenes and there is one rough sex scene that was very well written; the poor guy was drugged, confused, tormented and was being violated by an evil female character but then takes over the situation; and I've got to admit that two words "good girl" never sounded better; before that scene. There is a lot of vicious, twisted and violent torture thanks to the evil bad guys known as the breatheryn. The breatheryn are some seriously crazy monks but not in a good way. So there is a lot of action, adventure and French words in this book. I don't know why it took me so long to find out about this series but I am so glad that I have. I've already read the third one (Dark Need); and I'm finishing the second one (Private Demon) now. So, I'm positive that these books will continue to get better as the series continues. I plan to read the four remaining books of the series.
