Review

"Feehan has a Knack for Bringing Vampiric Carpathians to Virile, Vivid Life in Her Dark Carpathian Novels."

About the Author

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

I've read most of Christine Feehan's Dark Series, and enjoyed them overall.

This book was no different.

What I didn't like:

Now again, I've read and enjoyed most of Feehan's books, but yes, the basic plot line, character presentation and dialogue does get repetitive. The differences are very subtle at times... too subtle.

I didn't like the way Vikirnoff treated Mikhail in the beginning...as if he [Mikhail] was a child needing a babysitter. How annoying! Which again made the ending fantastic. (No worries, I won't tell)

I could've done without the Carpathian language at the end. I would've preferred a preview of Dark Celebration, her new book soon to come out. (That's just me though)

What I liked:

I liked Natayla's abilities. The lady had Carpathian and mage blood in her, and that was awesome. Her magic made her a formidable opponent, and her fighting abilities were on a par with Vikirnoff's. She was strong, independent, and very skilled in her powers and abilities. She was Vikirnoff's equal in every way. Yes, she did tend to be slightly annoying at times (resisting the idea of being lifemates in the beginning to the point of extreme annoyance as all the female leads do at times) but overall I enjoyed her. Oh, one definite plus was her jealousy and seeing how she reacted at other women being near her man. That was funny and endearing, considering the men are always seen as the jealous type. Women can get jealous too!

I loved, absolutely loved, seeing the other characters from Feehan's previous stories in this book, especially Mikhail, Raven and Gregori.

The action scenes-this seemed to bother many people, but I loved them, especially the last action scene where...all right I won't give it away.

Like many of the most devoted Feehan fans, I too have been feeling like one of my most treasured series was getting bland and boring! After reading all the reviews I was prepared to be dissatisfied with "Dark Demon." Well, low and behold, I loved it! The H/H were great, but what I loved most was the added lore (Wizards, Dragons, ect.). Seeing the old characters was wonderful because they were some of my favorites, and the main battle scene was awesome. I thought the intimacy aspect was touched on perfectly, personally I always feel like her sex scenes are so redundant that I don't need an excess of them. This story line with the heroine being Dragonseeker added immensely to this latest installment. I definitely could have done without the second language, especially when it isn't translated as your reading. I also wish she would divide the stories into sequenced groups or families so that we could better enjoy the series. I already feel that I need to go back and read previous books so that I can enjoy the newer installments more. But, at this point it wouldn't help. We were introduced with "Dark Prince" and the following stayed pretty consistent. Then she broke off a bit with the "Troubadours." Which was fine, but then she introduces us to the eldest hunters thought to be long dead, which I loved but this is where it gets confusing. Why oh why doesn't she finish with the elders, then the Jungle De La Cruz Brothers then the Wizards and Dragons. I'm so confused it's ridiculous! She tries to explain that the publishers are behind the confusion on her web site, there you can read more about the history and background but it's not all that helpful. I will say that after reading "Dark Demon" my faith in her future is restored and I am again looking forward to the next with a lot more enthusiasm, all the confusion aside.

In a way, Dark Demon is sort-of a wrap-up book of several plot lines that Feehan has had going for the last few years. We finally get to revisit the wizard cave and find out what the vampires have been searching for desperately enough to actually band together. We see the master vampire, and realize that magic and chemistry are being used to enhance his powers and those of his followers. We also get to finally see Vikirnoff (Dark Destiny) find his lifemate, Natalya, kin to the famous Dragonseeker clan. While the story is satisfying because it weaves several threads together to answer many questions, it disappointed me on several levels.

First of all, there is none of the deep and satisfying "getting to know you" interaction between Natalya and Vik. While the beginning of the book started out promising enough in this regard, their relationship was quickly cast aside in favor of violence and fight scenes - LOTS of fight scenes.

Second, other interactions were discarded in favor of action. 1. When Natalya meets her uncle, Dominic, for the first time, it was like, "oh, hi". 2. Vik doesn't ever contact his brother Nicolae to tell him he found a lifemate. What's up with that? 3. When the other Carpathians finally meet Natalya, it's like, "so what?" Isn't a new lifemate to a Carpathian a BFD?

Spoilers here - Other questions arose -Falcon's lifemate Sarah displayed power when she forged the sword, what kind of power was it, what is it called and what else can she do? Why does she have power, when she is such a new Carpathian, or was this something all the women can do? Natalya was converted to the Carpathians.
