This is book two of the Darkness Chosen series. I wasn't impressed with the first book in the series but was need of a quick read and thought I'd give book two a try and I'm glad I did. Book two was soooooo much better than the first and really got attached to the characters.

This story is about another one of the brothers, Rurik Wilder. Rurik is an archaeologist working on a sight that could change his familys life because after much research he is sure one of the familys four icons is buried within the tomb. The only one that can ulter his plans is the woman he loves......Tasya Hunnucutt.

Tasya is a reporter/photographer with an agenda of her own. She is working on a book about the "legendary" varinski family and if she can just get the icon then she'll have the prof she needs, that will show the world exactly what the Varinskis are, and this will be very sweet justice for her because of her past. She has so much hatred for them, but little does she know that she slept with the enemy, a Varinski Wilder, Rurik Wilder.

When there is an explosion at the site and Rurik and Tasya barley escape they know that they are being chased by the Varinskis and they won't stop until they are dead. So now as they are gathering clues as to where the icon might be they have to be extra careful because if the icon were to get into the wrong hands, then it's game over.

When they reach the small town of Ruyshvania, the hear ghost stories about things of the past and clues that might be in an old church up the hill.

When they are alone Rurik convinces Tasya to run while he engages in battle with the Varinskis(his cousins) but not before some hot goodbyes "wink, wink". She is to bring the icon to his familys home and give it to his nother, she will know what to do but just as Taysa is running, she for she can't believe her eyes, one of the Varinskis changed into an eagle and following that eagle is a hawk and the hawk use to be Rurik!

Now that Taysa knows that the rumors are all true and has discovered what or who Rurik really is, she is at a crossroad, fame and fortune for herself or deliver the icon to his family and see what happens, for they are her enemy and now rurik is too.....isn't he?
