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.

Praise for Christine Feehan and her Carpathian novels
“The queen of paranormal romance! The one who started it all! The erotic, gripping series that has defined an entire genre. I love everything she does.”—J. R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“After Bram Stoker, Anne Rice and Joss Whedon (who created the venerated Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Christine Feehan is the person most credited with popularizing the neck gripper.”—Time
“Feehan has a knack for bringing vampiric Carpathians to vivid, virile life in her Dark Carpathian novels.”—Publishers Weekly
“Red-hot romance and great storytelling...a treat you can’t refuse...Thrill-a-minute fantasy with complex characters and a story that captivates from beginning to end.”—Fresh Fiction

I don’t read many erotic books, they aren’t for me. This series, however, has so much more to it than some extremely hot passionate scenes which can last for several pages. Don’t tell anyone, I skim read those!
The community of Carpathian people, created by Feehan, presently spans over 30 books. Feehan superbly ratchets up suspense and fear truly taking you over the edge when the it-can’t-possibly-be-happening happens! Consequently, it makes a very edgy read. Frankly, I cannot finish the book fast enough (burning up the pages), yet not want it to finish! Through this series, the characters have become so real, many of them return in each book--making you feel like you’ve just made contact with a good friend. Feehan writes her characters with memorable personalities making me really care about what happens to them.
The Carpathian people are evolving since they are marrying into the Jaguar and Lycan communities and with this they have saved their own species. Carpathians live for more than a thousand years. Unless they find their true lifemate, they become more susceptible to giving up their souls, hence becoming vampires. Vampires in some books we read are wimps, but Carpathian vampires are your worst nightmare!
Dark Blood is an exciting read. No vampires in this one, but perhaps something far worse await you! Dragonseekers, an ancient bloodline of the Carpathians, are known for fighting skills. They shape-shift to dragons. An ancient bloodline, Dark Blood, thought to be extinct is discovered to yet survive. This story introduces us to the last surviving Carpathians of this lineage.
I recommend the Dark series and loved this read. I’ve read many of the first 18 books three times. It’s a fascinating world and one I love to return to, over and over.
Zev and Branislava’s story is exciting. It’s fast paced, loaded with twists and turns and more “holy cow I didn’t see that coming” moments than I can remember reading in a long time. Ms. Feehan continues to amaze me with her imagination. The magic, the spells, the creatures, beings, and people… I find myself re-reading these parts because they’re so well described and plotted out.
Speaking of the plot – these books really do have an underlying similarity in that they all focus on the survival of the various races and the destruction of the evil vampires. What really got to me about Dark Blood was how the subject of racism between species was brought into the story and how very heartbreaking and poignant it was. “Ignorance is bliss”, some might say – but in this case ignorance is tragic. I shed a few tears there at the end but loved how this story made me feel.
Oh, so many feels!
