SHE RESTORES THE LIGHT OF HOPE.
Dr. Alexandra Keller is Chicago's most brilliant reconstructive surgeon.
HE DWELLS IN SHADOW.
Michael Cyprien is New Orleans's most reclusive millionaire--and in desperate need of Dr. Keller's skills.
A NEW DAWN AWAITS THEM BOTH....
Beneath the foundation of a mansion in the heart of the Garden District, Alexandra will perform an illegal surgery. Her patient's disfigurement is beyond medical repair. But his body's ability to recuperate from his wounds borders on the miraculous.
Alexandra knows Michael Cyprien is no ordinary patient. Intrigued by how his remarkable physiology might benefit medical science, she is even more compelled by his presence--and the mystery surrounding him and his associates, a cadre of immortals who call themselves the Darkyn.
If Angels Burn by Lynn Viehl
2 out of 5
Okay, so it takes several chapters (8 chapters to be exact) to actually find out what a Darkyn is. And it is a little cliche when you find out. I was really hoping for something cooler... Not vampire.
The post-surgery sequence is a bit too much like a bad LSD trip. Not really fun, understanding what was going on was pointless... And what the point of the bad trip is to show that they shared blood.... Sigh!
Gosh, I hated all the parts with Alex's brother, John. He is a giant downer in the book. I honestly started to skip a lot of the parts with him. Wasn't worth my time or energy.
There is too much double crossing, multiple identies, and secrets in this book. Ugh!
There are too many loopholes that are trying to be tied up in this book!
Overall, a bit of a confusing book. What is said in one chapter seems to change in the next. Hints , clue or obvious statements that should happen don't... Almost as if the author is trying to throw twists into the story. Not a series that I'm willing to continue , and I question reading anything else by this author.
