All New from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.
As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.

The answer awaits him back home, in Peru, in the betrayal of a woman who is readying her trap, in the vengeance of an old enemy, in the inevitable consequences of a bloody family legacy-and in the deliverance of a lifemate he never could have imagined...

From the Hardcover edition.


  • What The....? Huh!!! 😱😱

    By KannaLi
    By the end of the first chapter I wanted throw this book in the fireplace. Only two things stopped me: 1. The obscene amount of money I paid for the hard back and 2. I don't have a fireplace. The Delacruz brothers have always been one of my favorites. And her previous books about them were amazing. But this one was such a huge disappointment. How could she write such a horrible story for a man who had gone through so much. As a result of this story have had yet to read the others; even Skylar and Dimitri's and I've been waiting years for that one.
  • Awesome Book!!!

  • Good Story

    By Enjoyer of good books
    I really enjoy this series, but I have to admit that this wasn't my favorite. Parts were very good while other parts that I would have expected the author to flesh it out based on past books were bland and not as clear as usual. However, if you enjoy the series I would recommend this book. If this your first attempt at reading the series read an earlier book first or much of the story line will be missing.

    I truly hope this is not the end of the series but the story of course gets three out of five stars. We all should not be surprised by the violence. Zacarias has lived so long, gone through such troubles and has kept the light of himself. His lifemate has done something that no one else could, she is keeping him from the darkness, even if it comes with a price. He deserves love, happiness but truth be told, as good a job as Christine Feehan tried to do with this novel, she did not touch the base of the man we all expected a great story from. Having read all the novels back to back, I'm astounded she made such an unruly mistake as to give him someone who's not perfect for him. She's disobedient yes but he needs that, she simply forgot to give the woman a backbone in which she needs to stand up to the unruly predator. It's humdrum but I sat through because I needed something to read on my iPad during a flight. OVERALL: 3/5 stars Miss Feehan did her best but she had mistakes. More than once descriptions change as did this magical old language. It needs a rewrite with hard editing but not so much that it changes the story. A woman with such talent should know better than to give this man a woman who does not suit what he needs. *~*~*~*Miss Black*~*~*~*
  • Another great Dark

    Can't wait for the next book in the series. I love this series.
  • So-so

    By Sunnygurl570
    There are shining moments in this book, but sadly not enough to redeem it. Zacarius is not so evil that he cannot be redeemed, he will never be whole because his lifemate will never be. It is great set-up for maybe his downfall in a later book. As a stand-alone book, not so impressive. There are some beautifully emotional moments, but moments don't make a whole book. Worth reading, but maybe borrow from the library.

  • Bad

    By Ashley3
    I waited a long, long time for this book, "Dark Predator" to come forth and I was so disappointed. Come on now...so preditable, so humdrum and his lifemate boring. With this last book, I am not excited to ready anymore of this series. I think it is time for the series to end with a new book entitled, "Dark Endings" or "Dark Foreclosure". Just have a final meeting of all the Carpathians and all of the vampires and have a final battle and call it a day or a night. And end it...they lived happily every after...THE END.

    Another great love story about a Carpathian male who harbors more darkness than light in his soul, and a young woman whose spirit calls to him. After centuries of brutal battles, Zacarias is a brutal, soulless, ruthless dark predator, who believes he is beyond saving. Margarita's love and unique gift with animals enables her to see past zacarias's barriers, to the real man buried deep. This is a complex love story about good and evil, with a twist....it's also about learning to believe in oneself, and that not all things dark are necessarily evil if one has the courage to see beyond the surface.
