Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the futuristic world of Feehan's bestselling paranormal romances, shapeshifters, humans, vampires, and a benign but powerful breed known as Carpathian vampires vie for dominance using both magic and technology. Carpathian Dominic Dragonseeker has taken a desperate gamble by ingesting deadly vampire parasites that will help him infiltrate cruel enemies who seek to destroy his peaceful race. He never counted on finding his lifemate under these dire circumstances, but to his shock, his dreams of a jaguar shape-shifter turn into reality when he meets warrior Solange Sangria. Solange is bent on destroying her evil father and his cohorts, who murder women and conduct hideous scientific experiments. Dominic and Solange must learn to fight side by side and trust each other to protect the innocent and heal their old wounds. Feehan builds an original and complex world enriched by sensuality and enlivened by bloody, fast-paced action. This latest entry-intended, like its 20 predecessors, to stand alone-is sure to please old fans and win new readers.

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.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

Having given up hope of ever finding his lifemate in this life time and determined to end his existence with honor, Ancient Carpathian warrior Dominic has begun a suicidal quest to gain the information necessary to save his Prince and his people. Dominic has ingested vampire blood, knowing that the parasites which now infect his body will provide the camouflage needed to allow him to walk among the enemy in order to get the intel necessary to foil the vampires' foul plots. But even as the parasites attempt to seduce Dominick into taking the final step and becoming vampire himself, Dominick has begun to dream, and in his dreams he 'feels' hints of the emotions that he has lost. Emotions stirred by the unique woman of his dreams, a woman who shows a warrior face to the world but who shares her softer side with him.

Jaguar shifter, Solonge survived the annihilation of her family and friends perpetrated by the ruthless males of her species. Solonge now fights a guerilla war against the Jaguar men - stealing back captives and working to wipe their evil from the world. Unsurprisingly, Solonge's experiences with men in general are not good, and she is also distrustful of domineering Carpathian males - her cousin is mated to one of the Delacruz brothers. But in Solonge's dreams she has created the perfect man, sexy and strong to be a partner to her but one who will also allow her to be a woman in addition to a warrior.

Both of the pair are a bit surprised to find that the one who they've been dreaming of is real. That they are lifemates adds a level of complication because both have upcoming battles - Solonge against the evil leader of the Jaguar men who has dastardly plans for her, and Dominick against the vampires - battles which neither of them expected to survive.

I have always been a big fan of the Dark Series. Not as much her other stories. There was something intriguing, sexy, and almost forbidden reading about mostly humans and a vampire-like species and seeing their differences provide interesting obstacles that would HAVE to be faced and conquered. I enjoy the paranormal element, though I am not interested in science fiction of any kind. There are plenty of series' out there for people who do. I even enjoy reading about the hyper-alpha males beating their chests. It's a fantasy novel, not real life after all. What I can't understand is why she took a popular premise and has started to suck the life out of it with dragons, mages, wizards, and now the jaguar people/shifters. I feel like these are not what I signed on for. I hate this new format, and apparently am not alone. If jaguars interest you, read her other series etc. Also the redundant use of the Carpathian language wasn't terribly interesting in small amounts, now it's just being shoved down our throats. And I realize these are fiction, but there has to be an amount of magical realism involved. You're going to take a formerly strong lead female and turn her into an insecure, blubbery, mess? And then have a reader believe you've cured her issues by insisting she wear some tacky lingerie you pulled literally out of the air? It was just hard to read after the first few pages. I don't know about anyone else, but remember when the women in these novels might fight at first, but in their own way they were strong and opinionated. This character was weak, boring, uninteresting, and just plain annoying. I don't want to read about how quickly she can form fur and a muzzle and then think anyone would would find that sexy. Is she your girlfriend or your pet? Decide already Feehan!Read more ›

I used to be a die hard CF fan. Her Dark series used to be AMAZING. I feel so let down.... I have not enjoyed one (so called) Carpathian book since (and including) Dark Celebration. I feel as if she has butchered something that used to be one of my favorite series.
What ruined it for me, was all the mage & wizardry, the leopard/jaguar people, the dragonseeker bloodlines, the rainforest setting, all the Carpathian language/chant mumbo jumbo. I get bored on the first page of all her books lately! I haven't been able to finish one since 'The Celebration' turning point. This one was no different.... couldn't finish it! I wouldn't even give it 1 star if I didn't have to. Give me a human female with SLIGHT psychic powers and a centuries old Carpathian male any day over this weird sy-fi stuff.
I have been anticipating Skylar and Dimitri's story for a long time and now I don't even want her to write it! Not if she stays on this dead end track.
Please, Christine Feehan! Go back to your old way of writing a Carpathian novel!!! Seriously, PLEASE!

I was so looking forward to this book. Dominic was a favorite of mine and I was looking forward to his story. As the first reviewer said, the first and last third of the book is good. The middle really isn't. They stay in the cave for ever. It got very boring and I found myself skipping over sections, trying to find some action. When the action starts, the story springs to life again. Also, I absolutely HATE the Carpatian words CF keeps throwing in. It really distracts me from the story. Her books have always been an auto-buy for me, but they just aren't as good as they used to be for me. In my opinion, if she would put as much into the stories as she did into the language and songs at the end of the books, they would be much better. I'll have to really think about it before I buy any of her books again.
