Four gorgeous nighttime predators bid farewell to bachelorhood in this uneven quartet of sensual paranormal romances. Surprisingly, Feehan's "Dark Hunger," depicting the romance between an immortal Carpathian and a spirited shape-shifter, is the weakest of the lot. Feehan struggles with the short form; she tries to cram everything she would normally put in a novel—multiple conflicts, a full cast of characters and an abundance of love scenes—into a mere 100 pages, and the result is a frenetic tale lacking emotional intensity, plausibility and focus. The stories improve progressively, however, with Shayne delivering a tightly wrought werewolf romance in "Awaiting Moonrise" and Holly offering a sexy, shockingly kinky romance ("The Night Owl") between a vampire and a smalltown baker. The most inventive of the four is "Seduction's Gift." Knight imagines a magical world where Magi, immortal champions of humankind commonly referred to as "witches" and "vampires," wield their powers to save humanity from itself. These immortal champions include the legendary King Arthur, Guinevere and the hero of this tale, Lord Lancelot du Lac, assassin and High Court seducer. All the stories suffer to some degree from an overabundance of lust and sex and a dearth of emotional connection, but fans of the genre aren't likely to mind.

The book was in very good condition. No scuff marks, spine damage, or ripped pages; why wasn't this listed as new? That's what it looked like to me. I'm very happy that I picked this seller because the item came to me quickly. I'm just happy.
I liked 3 of the 4 stories contained within this book. The only one that got on my nerves because of the words used was, I believe, the last one; the one with Magis? I'm all for sexual liberation and choosing who we decide to see us in the nude, but I don't appreciate the immlication that a womans will can be so easily underminded with sex, when men are no better. But that's all I wish to say about that story in particular. Didn't like Angela Knight's one, but the other 3 were good/great.
I have no problem with Angela Knight, just didn't like THAT particular story and/or series.
I had never read any novels by Maggie Shayne or Emma Holly. I found both of their offerings very entertaining and will definitely be looking for more of their books.
But the story that finally forced me to write my first review was Christine Feehan's Dark Hunger. I read her Drake Sister stories, loved them and am eagerly awaiting the seventh book in the series. So I was surprised when many of the reviewers had negative comments about a Christine Feehan story. I had never read any books in the Carpathian series. But I TOTALLY loved Dark Hunger. I enjoyed it so much that I quickly bought and read two more Carpathian novels. Another one is on order and the rest are on my shopping list. I'm just sad there are only 24 hours in the day because I can't wait to read them all!
