I really wanted to love this book as Gregori is a brilliant character and I love him in the other books. Would give it 4.5 stars if I could as there were parts that were really good just a few parts which didn't quite work for me.
In this book we are given an insight into Gregori's character. He is a tortured soul being the one of the eldest, and known as the dark one ,the destroyer he felt that he did not deserved to be loved and he thought that he was a monster being the most powerful he also struggled with the fact that he felt that Savannah was not his true life mate considering the way he made it so that she was bonded to him when she was in her mother's womb!
Savannah was able to break him down no easy feat and succeeded in allowing him to love him self and her fully. I am glad that he did not change his ways completely.
I also liked the human Gary's character the way he was able to bring out the humour in Gregori was sweet since Gregori had lost the ability to feel happiness or be funny since he had been lifeless for a long time.
Again there were some phrases that kept on being repeated if I see the word 'velvet sheath ' I am going to scream!!!!!
I liked Gregori in the previous books I love him more now.
The main problem is that the first few books dealt with human heroines falling in love with supernatural heroes, and so of course the human heroines find lots of things difficult to understand/accept and the author had lots of fun with the conflict this created. However, in this book, a supernatural woman falls for a supernatural guy - but the author seems to forget this and recycles a load of the material from the first few books. So the heroine doesn't seem to know the most obvious and basic things about her own culture and has random problem with it all, but it's not clear why. We're told vaguely that her mother tried to raise her with human values - but given that her father is the leader of the supernatural people, you would think she'd have picked up a thing or two.
The book becomes really dull, so the author tries to spice it up with lots of sex scenes and (yet another) evil vampire stalking the couple. But because the couple are dull, the reader just finds it all a bit hard to care about. I struggled to finish the book it became so boring.
I love Gregori, he is by far my favorite Carpathian Male and funnily enough all the others that attract me turn out to be his brothers!!! (with the exception of Jacques)
However, second time round I found this to be a story of two halves. And I much preferred the first half as Gregori and Savannah struggle to find the balance of thier relationship. I was hooked to Gregori's sorrow at believing he had unfairly manipulated fate to become Savannah's lifemate. It was endeering and humbling and only made me love him more.
Gary Jansen makes his first appearance in this book too and forges the most unlikely freindship with Gregori, the dark one - when you get to Dark Celebration, you find out just how much Gregori cares for this man. The interplay between the couples and Gary is fun and entertaining, and it's good to see such a strong Carpathian couple rely on a mere mortal.
The second half of the book is, for me, all violence and doom and gloom and I found it took me longer to read through having already read it and knowing what was about to happen. But with Gregori, more so than any other character, including Mikhail, we see him lots more in many of the following stories, so when I finished this book it wasn't like I was saying goodbye.
Savannah is great and just like Raven, but with a stronger sense of fun, and she compliments Gregori perfectly. My favorite scene in the book is where the two of them come together in the courtyard in the midst of a storm.
I am giving this five stars because I absolutely adore Gregori! The story however was a little disapointing.
