Nicola "Nick" Jefferson has a special talent; she is able to find lost things. Nick is looking for an artifact called the Golden Madonna, an object that her parents were murdered over. Over the last 10 years she has been looking for her parent's killer, during which time she has found Vampires, who are being tortured and held prisoner, and releases them. Nick has begun having dreams about a green man who is lost; and as such, she is drawn to a place in France.
Gabriel Seran is the man from Nicola's dreams. He has been left for dead by the Brethren, a fanatical religious order. He has been tortured, blinded and nailed to a cross before being sealed in the basement of an abandoned church. When Nick rescues Gabriel she realizes that he is the man from her dreams and that he needs her help getting back to the Darkyn. As they spend more time together, they realize that they love one another and that there are obstacles to work through and the Brethren to escape.
During this book we also see more of previous characters and learn more of the Darkyn and their King. The King is very sick and in the previous book he had kidnapped Alexandra, a newly turned Darkyn and a doctor from Cyprien, her sygkenis, her life mate, to help heal him. Cyprien is attempting to rescue Alexandra.
Night Lost is the fourth book in the Darkyn series and Ms. Viehl has continued to draw the reader into the world of the Darkyn. I found this book an extremely well written book with an excellent storyline and strong characters. Some of the scenes were sizzling hot and the whole book was a pleasure to read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal books. I am looking forward to reading more of the Darkyn and this book is joining my keeper shelf.
Abandoned by his fellow Darkyn, Gabriel Seran is in continual torment as a prisoner of the religious zealots known as the Brethren. His only hope for rescue lies in Nicola Jefferson, a thief seeking a holy relic-and connected to Gabriel in more ways than she can possibly imagine.
