Having read the review entitled 'lacklustre' I was not quite sure what to expect when I read this book, however, while I agree that this book is not as pacey or action packed as some of the other Carpathian books and the main characters' personal histories are not as well developed, it deserves more than two stars. The main female character in the book, Riley, is a linguistics professor and is travelling in the Amazon jungle with her mother to complete a ritual which will keep 'a great evil' contained within the local volcano. Riley and her mother Annabel are descendants of a Carpathian woman and a now extinct aboriginal people called the 'Cloud People' and this ritual has been completed by them and their ancestors roughly 100 times in the last 500 years. Gary Jansen and Jubal Sanders (Joie's brother) also play major roles in this book and their characters help to establish the timeline. The other main characters are Dax, a Carpathian hunter, and Mitro Daratrazanoff, the vampire. Both of them have been trapped in the volcano, Dax willingly, by Riley's ancestor for about 500 years. Obviously Mitro manages to escape and there are the usual vampire tricks and battles etc., with a few new twists thrown in for good measure. Riley's powers are a bit different and Dax is not as dominating as some of the other male Carpathian's have been. All in all it doesn't move the Carpathian race's story on a lot further, but it's not the first time Chrisitne Feehan has decided to write a mostly stand alone story in the series. Personally, I think that if you are a regular Christine Feehan Carpathian reader you will enjoy it as a lighter Carpathian read. If you have never read her before, definitely start at the beginning of the series with Dark Prince as this is one of the best books in the series.

The reason why i love this book so much, and probably the reason why others will hate it, is because it is so different from what Feehan usually writes. I have found that Feehan's writing and how she writes her books have caused them to become more of a chore to read but Dark Storm seemed like it had been written by another writer and Dax seemed to be different from any hunter we have previously come across but he was so likable to me, not so forceful but more sweet and understanding.

I will admit this book takes some time to get into with Riley and Dax not meeting until about 40% in but the story is still interesting and engaging and when they do meet it is so sweet and i love the Old One, Riley was also a suprise with her being human but having powers that rival a Carpathians. I also like how we see a lot of old characters and i really hope Jubal and Jasmine could get together, they were really sweet with eachother.

I would say if you love Feehan's previous novel you will probably not like this one as it is so different, but it is still a must read for the series as we are given more insight into finding out why it is so hard for Carpathians can have babies.

Shocked to read a couple of very negative reviews before starting Dark Storm, after reading the book I wonder did these folks actually read This book. As a fan of Christine Feehans work I wasn't put off, I would like to say to anyone looking at the Dark series for the first time, go for it you won't regret it.

Dark Storm was gripping from the first page to the very last, an actioned packed, fast paced story line. We meet Dax the Carpathian Hunter, trapped in a valcano with the evil monster vampire Mitro, what a surprise to learn of Mitro's linage, explained why he was so hard to kill. Riley a powerfull women in her own right, although she didn't know it at first. Riley's ancesters had handed down through the generations special gifts, what Riley went through to receive those gifts showed how strong she was. Riley, Dax and another battled to rid the world of Mitro and his minions. Dax never thought he would meet his Lifemate, but one look at Riley and he knew, so lovely to see their love blossom between them as they snatched moments among all the meyhem, they were as hot as the valcano itself. A fantastic story by Ms Feehan with some unexpected twists, enjoy I am sure you will.

Just when you think that you have learnt everything about the carpathians Christine writes a book that adds even more to the series. I have read all the books, and this one was a superb storyline it was everything you had come to expect fromthis writer and more. A must read for Dark Carpathian fans you won't be disappointed.

The Carpathian world of Christine Feehan was my first foray into the world of paranormal romance. A chance find in my local library introduced me to Lucian and Gabriel, mighty Carpathian Hunters and twins to boot. Like all Carpathian Hunters they have a single goal, which is to rid the world of evil vampires. But all Carpathian men share a curse too; if they do not find their lifemate, the one woman in all the world who possess the other half of their soul, the light to their dark, then they risk becoming the very thing they hunt or making a choice to greet the sun and die an agonising death.

In a series that risks becoming stale and repetitive, over time Feehan has introduced new species, climbed the tree of life and then plumed it's roots and has taken her readers to the `other side' to walk with ancient Carpathian ancestors, long since passed. Often stories have deviated so much from her tried and tested formula that it was a slog to get through and only my loyalty to the series kept me going. Dark Storm is the twenty-third book in this lengthy series and for me, it was a return to form for Feehan taking me back to when I first fell in love with her books.

Each book strengthens the Carpathian legacy, introducing new characters but also drawing on those we've met previously so that in your head you almost become a part of this amazing race.

Dark Storm pits ancient Carpathian Hunter, Dax against his lifelong foe and willingly turned vampire nemisis, Mitro. By the ancient magic of Mitro's lifemate, Arabejila, a woman he turned from to in order to embrace evil, both Hunter and vampire have been locked deep inside a sleeping volcano, in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest.
