Alexandria Houton will sacrifice anything to protect her little brother. But when they both encounter an unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex can only pray for their deliverance...And out of the darkness swoops Aidan Savage, a being more powerful and more mysterious than any other creature of the night. This ageless Carpathian male has saved them both from a hideous fate. But is Aidan truly Alexandria's salvation...or her ultimate betrayer?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another absolute winner from Ms Feehan. 25 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the third carpathian novel by Christine Feehan, and amidst great expectations she manages to deliver results again! Another great novel, strong story line, and another scrummy Carpathian! What more can I say?
Alexandria and her little brother Joshua are saved from unspeakable evil by Aidan Savage.
Aidan has to earn Alexandria's love and trust. He displays a tremendous amount of patience and acknowledges that he cannot force Alex into his way of life, but that she has to come to terms with it and embrace it on her own accord.
Alexandria has to come to terms with what she has been exposed to, what Aidan is, what it all means to her and Joshua. Her whole belief system has been rocked, and she needs to find herself, trust Aiden, and embrace her new way of life.
The setting is modern day San Franscicso, a far cry from the Carpathian mountains of Dark Prince and Dark Desire, however everything else is the same. Very well written, strong characters and a writting style that is both dark and compelling, close your eyes, and you could be in San Franscico!
Buy it you will not regret it
Also recommended Dark Prince and Dark Desire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep them coming 25 July 2004
By Claudia
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my second novel of the Dark series, but it was a pleasure for me that the characters from this book were different from the first. Only one thing remains common, the female characters are very independent and have very strong opinions and they drive the male characters crazy because of that, and of course the male characters, how should I put it, have a mentality of a man of the 15th century. But they have to grow up and mature and realize that women have achieved their liberation from men. It's hard for them but they come to terms with that.
This book introduces us to Aidan, one of the golden twins.... One of the ancients and very powerful Carpatians... This character unlike the other of his race is linked to his human "family", but for that you must read the book.
Alexandria is also a novelty regarding the other female character, she's also not alone in her life.
The love that they have for one another is taken through many ordeals until they can finally be with each other.
This book maintains the same feelings of the last but introduces the friendship that the male character has towards other characters besides his lifemate or Carpatians.
If you want loose yourself in another world, this is one the most beautifull to be lost in.

3.0 out of 5 stars good but not good enough 13 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book promises much but doesn't quite do it. I found myself wanting to reach into the pages and slap the herione Alex for the first 2 thirds of the book, she comes across as weak, self-pitying and well.. downright annoying and childish, and as for Aidan against the weaker Alex he comes off looking like an insensitive bully and not very likeable becuase of that. However the final third does make up in part for that, Alex finally gets around to showing some "girlpower" and standing up for herself, Aidan finally starts showing that caring sensitive side we know all carpathian males have and the plot hots up sufficiently to get you hooked. However for me one question I had was never awnsered What about joshua?? what happens when he realises that allthough his sister is now immortal he is not...I hope Christine addresses this in a later book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold for Dark Gold 24 Nov 2009
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The third book in the Carpathian series and as enjoyable as the previous two. I have just finsihed reading it for the second time as I go through my entire collection in sequence this time.

I found Aidan a little overbearing and annoying at times just as I felt Alexandria could be a bit of a spoilt brat. But my dislike of the characters is not a comment on the book. Christine Feehan must be admired for her ability to create unique characters time and time again. And not mollycoddling them with nothing but attractive qualities.

Dark Gold focus's more on the relationship between the two characters than it does on the threat of the undead or the 'Society'. Alexandria has literally been plunged into the carpathian world through no choice because she had been bitten by the vampire and Aidan only had one way to save her. Once again there is cameo from Gregori, my very favorite Carpathian.

It's unique among the Carpathian novels as there is so much reliance on humans, Aidan's family (house keep and driver), Alexandira's younger brother Joshua and a couple of what I imagine to be mafia hitmen, the humans are the Aidan's weakness exposing his vulnerability to care for those closest to him during the daylight hours. But they have as much love and respect for him that equally they would give thier lives for him. I really enjoyed this book, but so far in the series as written Jacques is my favorite. And because this is not my first time reading them I am looking forward with baited breath to reading Dark Magic and spending some qulity time with Gregori!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done the story just keep going. 28 Dec 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I agree with the reviewer from London. Everything it says is spot on. The only down side to it there was no Michail, Raven, Jacques & Shae in it. Gregori, the dark one doesn't make an apearence until near the end. I do hope we see more of them in the next book, Dark Magic. This is Gregori & Savannah's story. Well done and keep this series coming. I don't want it to end after 5 books.
