Feehan finally releases Dimitri and Skyler's story.. is it worth it?

In Dark Lycan, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In Dark Wolf, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death.

Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming…

No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri—as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true. Whatever the risk.

Finally.. after a decade.. Skyler is nineteen.. grown up.. 

At the end of Dark Lycan, there was a huge battle and Dimitri was taken captive. The Carpathians were told that Dimitri was safe until the council met with the Carpatians. But Skyler knows differently. Her amazing connection to Dimitri is cut off. She can't communicate with him, and she knows the only way that would happen was if he were dead or if he were blocking her. She knows he isnt dead. Skyler, Josef, and Paul concoct a plan to rescue Dimitri. 

Finally she is able to contact him only to find out that he is slowly being tortured to death. Because he is held by Lycans, and lycans can sense Carpathians, but they cannot sense her, they form a plan to rescue him. The plan mostly works, but due to a tracker placed on Dimitri they are quickly found. Skyler erects a protective shield, that no lycan can penetrate. There is unrest among the lycans. Some back Zev, who believes that Dimitri is not the dreaded Sanga rau (the wolf/vampire mix). The others believe that any wolf/Carpathian mix is an abomination and need to be eradicated.

I have waited ten years for Skler and Dimitri's book. The Dark series was the first vampire romance series I ever read. For many years it was my favorite. Around about Dark Demon, I started to lose interest. I kept going because I wanted.. no needed to hear Skyler's story. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.. I think I shall return to Sherrilyn Kenyon now. I'm sorry Ms Feehan.
