Review - Stay the Night by Lynn Viehl

Stay the Night
Darkyn, Book 7
Lynn Viehl
January 6, 2009
ISBN# 978-0-451-41266-9

Book Blurb:
Outlaw, immortal vampire, and art thief, Darkyn Lord Robin of Locksley has evaded authorities for the last 700 years. At the moment, he's falling for undercover federal agent Christina Renshaw, who has no time for an affair. She hopes to snag an elusive art thief, but soon has no choice other than to join forces with Robin.

When the chase becomes dangerous, both will have to choose between losing each other and losing everything they value...

My thoughts:
Chris Renshaw is working a case to capture an international art thief that the agency calls the Magician. Against her better judgement the bait is The Maiden’s Book of Hours, a priceless book created by Brother Thomas de Crewes and filled with prayers, fables and portraits of the famous people of his time.

Robin of Locksley is one of the immortal Darkyn and has spent half a millennium trying to retrieve the book he feels is rightfully his. There are others, immortals like him, who have their own claims on the book and they’ll let nothing stop them from claiming their prize.

This is the seventh book in the Darkyn series. Ms. Viel deftly juggles many story threads in Stay the Night, giving readers a good look at new characters as well as the current troubles in the world of the Darkyn. The author does a fabulous job of unfolding the mysteries of her hero, and makes this story a well-defined and engrossing addition to the series.
