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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback
Since their parents died Alexandria Houton's life has revolved around her six-year-old brother Joshua. When they are kidnapped by an evil Alex could never have imagined, and then rescued Alex's life changes forever. Aidan Savage is the Carpathian who rescued Alex and her brother. He left the Carpathian mountains to hunt vampires in San Francisco, but when he realises that Alex is his lifemate he also realises that by entering her life he has turned her into a target for all the vampires in the area.

This is the third in Christine Feehan's Carpathian series (which started with Dark Prince and continued with Dark Desire). I'm gradually working my way through the series and have mixed opinions so far so I wasn't sure what to expect. I did like the change of setting from the Carpathian mountains to San Francisco as it made the book feel a little more normal.

The story picks up quickly at the start of the novel and the first two chapters are action packed. After that the book becomes more about Alex and Aidan's relationship, which is what I expected the main plotline to be about as this is a paranormal romance after all. The idea of a collection of bad guys means that there is a fair amount of variety to the storyline, and I have to admit I loved how Thomas Ivan was tied in as potential competition for Aidan. I've heard the Carpathian men referred to as overbearing, which I agree with, but Aidan manages to give Alex some independence which is refreshing. There are few things worse in romance novels than having a dislikable overbearing jerk as the "hero".

This is the third in the Carpathian series, although I had read the Dark Prince, Dark Desire, Dark Magic and Dark Guardian before this, I was really looking forward to this one.
Although the story is good, Alexandria Houton and brother live in San Francisco, they are saved by the hero Aidan, twin of Julian and of course Aidan discovers Alexandria to be his lifemate.
I have never been so frustrated or disliked a 'heroine' so much in my life. She was a pain from beginning to end, when she suddenly discovered (after nearly 300 pages of hating him) that she loved him, would accept the difficult life (come on! lots of money a sex god as a mate and never having to worry about ANYTHING) he had exposed her to without given her any choice. Excuse me, but the vampire exposed her to the dreadful life she now had to endure first and this is completely forgotten about all the way through this very irritating and frustrating book.
What were you thinking Christine Feehan, you certainly didn't have your mind on the right path with this one, very disappointing simply because of Alexandria.
The story, is as the others a good vampire read, shame I had to suffer Alex!
