Just finished Nightborn: Lords of the Darkyn and it was a really solid read (4 - 4.5 stars). I'm so glad Viehl decided to revisit the Darkyn world. Korvel was the hero in this one--the High Lord's right hand guy. I really liked his heroine Simone. She's very kick a$$ and had some cool secrets about her background. The book was well written and a good amount of mystery, action, suspense and romance.

I liked that the Brethen didn't play a role in this book. They were such nasty bad guys in the earlier Darkyn books. I have to admit they are a bit too dark for me, so I appreciated their absence.

It has a good excerpt at the end for the next book Nightbred: Lords of the Darkyn, which Amazon says will be out in December 2012.

If you haven't read this series yet, it's best to start with the original Darkyn series first: If Angels Burn (Darkyn, #1) by Lynn Viehl. There is also a very good also spin off Kyndred series set in the same world with some cross over characters.
