The latest Dark novel is a superb entry that can stand by itself

Carpathian Nicolas De La Cruz has come home to report bad news to his prince. However, he also plans to commit suicide ending his centuries of loneliness.-------------- Lara Calladine has finally escaped the ice prison of her abusive father and even eviler grandfather. A half-breed she spent her childhood tortured by the pair in odious experiments to understand the dilution of her dragonkeeper bloodline with human DNA. She knows they are coming for her although that might be the nightmares that frighten her. When she and Nicholas meet, Lara knows she has found her soulmate so has Nicholas, but trust of another person is something she has learned first hand to never do. Still the time to confront her nightmares is now as she has a persistent champion demanding to be at her side.----------------- The latest Dark novel is a superb entry that can stand by itself as a powerful romantic fantasy yet also augments the super saga plot. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action both trademarks of Christine Feehan. Lara makes the tale excellent as a unique individual who has suffered torment and torture her entire life. Nicholas realizes rather quickly that he has her love, but gaining her trust seems impossible even as he risks his life to help her. Ms. Feehan provides a terrific thriller to the delight of the Carpathian crowd.--------------- Harriet Klausner

I was very disappointed in this book. I did not like the portions regarding the "child". I do not care to read graphics regarding children. Also,the story started off just fine, but the ending left me hanging. I daresay I will wait a LONG time before considering her work again and I had read all of the books up until now.

I am sure that authors change their styles to what they feel their readers want, but I am not happy about this change.

    Just a bit outside!

    I have to agree with SunshineDH. I love Ms. Feehan's books and have collected them all. However, I feel the last two books were a bit outside what she normally writes. I wish she would go back to how she originally wrote the first ten books and focus not only on the character, but on a "realistic" plot. I look forward to reading more of the Dark series along with the other books she is writing.

    Dark Curse

    I enjoyed listenig to the audio book but, their were times when I felt lost. So I had to listen to the CDs at least twice. This is the second audio book by Christine that I've listened to. The characters are very strong, they pull you into the story. I think the ending was short, I was expecting more.

    Focus

    While still staying true to series the last couple of books from the Carpathian series are not as intense or good as the previous books. I feel that Manilito and Nicholas were somewhat short changed. I feel that Christine has too many series going at the same time and is not devoting the needed time to an original series, that caught my attention in the first place
