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.

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.

I was hesitant at first about reading about Aidan since he was barely mentioned in the first book and he came out of nowhere but once I started I thoroughly enjoyed it. Here we are told about the story of Aidan and Alexandria who had a violent encounter with a vampire and from that moment on was suspicious of Aidan and his motives from the beginning.

What I liked about this book was the fact that the Carpathian male had a rival. In this case Ivan Thomas (who did not stand a chance) which was a pleasant change because in the previous books the chosen life mates had only the Carpathian male to deal with. There were some laugh out moments in this book especially the scene where Maria gave the flowers that Ivan brought for Alex. Aidan had to really fight hard for his life mate according to the human way which made him almost human.

My only gripe is that it was sometimes repetitive. I know that the series can be read as a stand alone books but for those of us who are reading the whole series it becomes boring.

Another plus for this book is that Gregori made an appearance. I have his book and I cannot wait to start it!¬

I think this is one of the best books in Feehan's Dark series. It's well written, the characters are believable and the story flows to an expected, but satisfying end (though I skipped the sex scenes so I'm not taking those into consideration - they tend to be several pages long and of an annoying descriptive quality which make me queasy - I really wish she'd just leave them out or cut them down to a freaking paragraph, but that's just me).

If you've never read the series this would be a good book to start with, however, not all of the books in the series are worth reading. The three I've found the worst were the very first book in the series and then the two before the latest one (Demitri and Skyler's story which I haven't read because it cost too much - ten pounds for an e-book romance is freaking highway robbery!).

I wish all her books were this well written!
