Draegon, the Dragon, had led a hard and difficult life until the
night he made a decision that would affect not only his current
situation but his entire life forever. After escaping a brutal
childhood, Constantine joins the Templar Knights where he meets a
group of men who will be a part of his eternal life. They are damned
to an eternity of protecting the sacred relic, the Daystar, as
vampires. Constantine is jaded by his past and does not believe
that true happiness exists.
Lex, is a kind, beautiful woman who has seen her fair share of pain
and suffering. She was raised by indifferent parents, her sister is
a vampire, her brother was killed, and to top it all off she has a
terrible rash that does not seem to get better… only worse. Lex
wants to find happiness and love and to feel like she belongs.
Lex has come to
live with her sister Allie and her husband, which means she will
also be sharing space with the other Templar vampires. Lex is
instantly embraced by the Templars and while she cares for them all…
she is drawn to Constantine from the moment of their accidental
meeting. She does not think that he returns her feelings.
Constantine is totally attracted to Lex, but he knows she is far too
good for someone like him.
rash just keeps getting worse and after seeking help from the local
pharmacist she has to come clean to Allie and the Templars,
especially when she is told that her rash looks like an infected
tattoo… that she never got. Constantine knows the moment that he
sees the tattoo what it means… Lex is the Daystar, the one item that
all vampires covet as it means they will be able to walk in the
sunlight. After much discussion and requests made to the Order of
the Rose, a group of powerful female vampires, it is decided that
Lex must go to England to be guarded until a ceremony can be
performed to harness the power of the Daystar. Constantine refuses
to allow Lex to travel alone and goes with her. Will Lex survive
the ceremony and can Constantine overcome his past to find true
happiness and love?
was another amazing addition to Rene Lyon’s Templar vampire series.
Constantine grabbed my attention in Midnight Sun and I was dying to
read his story. Constantine is the epitome of the sexy tortured bad
boy that has so much to offer if he can only overcome his past and I
truly enjoyed watching him try to achieve this. Lex is beautiful,
kind, and innocent, but she knows that Constantine is the man for
her and she is willing to go after him and convince him that he
needs her. I was instantly drawn into their story and watching the
chemistry and feelings grow between them was a wonderful way to
spend the evening. In The Daystar, Rene Lyons has
brought the readers another excellent read and I can hardly wait
fore next Templar story! Rene Lyons is one of my all time
