In the new Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a woman falls prey to the seductive allure of the past—and a vampire warrior’s intoxicating embrace...
The moment Charlotte Vintage walks into his club, Tariq Asenguard’s blood is set on fire. The ancient Carpathian had given up hope of finding his lifemate, but now he will do anything to make Charlotte his own. What Tariq doesn’t know is that Charlotte is using herself and her best friend as bait—to try to draw out the bloodthirsty killers who have already murdered Charlotte’s brother and mentor.
Charlotte is familiar with Tariq. Not only is he one of the richest and most eligible bachelors in the city, but he’s also a renowned collector of old carousel horses, which Charlotte restores. Their shared passion opens Charlotte up to trusting him with her life and with the desire she can no longer control. But it also makes her vulnerable to a centuries-old curse that will unite her and Tariq in a war against the enemies of humans and Carpathians alike...

I have read all of the Dark series and, like many I'm sure, liked some better than others. I really liked the idea of introducing children to the Carpathian world. I look forward to reading about their futures.

I've read every one of the dark series and wait patiently for the next book. That being said, I don't agree with some of the reviews that the book is flat or missing something. It gave me smiles and laughter along with almost tears lol

The latest installment of the Dark Series is a bit different from the last couple of books. I found it focused more on the different characters coming together as a family. The romance is definitely there, my only problem was that I felt we didn't get enough of Tariq and Charlie as a couple. Loved seeing the ancients from the monastery, a few new faces, and the children. Looking forward to more and hope we get more action!

Here you get to meet some of the newest additions to the Carpathian stories. This installment offers passionate love scenes, well choreographed battles, flying stone dragons, courageous leading ladies, and the challenge of converting a minor. My only wish was that Lucian Daratrazanof (or any of his line really...) had been able to answer the call for a healer. Love Lucian ...

Another fantastic read from Feehan. The vampires are getting smarter and learning to use technology in the hopes of finding psychically enhanced women. The Carpathians from the monastery have joined in the hunt and are finding love. As always, I can't wait to read the next enstallment!

I am a huge fan of Ms Feehan and this book rocked. She expanded to America in this series...not just a quick trip, but a compound with an ever-growing new family branch of Carpathians, including children! She just rocked the series to another level! So intrigued and I cannot wait for the next book or two to see how everything will tie together! We now have children and several lifemated couples on three continents and it is just wonderful to watch them grow into this century. What a force to be reckoned with!

I absolutely love this series by Christine Feehan. Its written so well you feel like your a character in the story. I also love how these books tie the main story line in to a really good continuation and then some. I cant wait to see how its ended but at the same time I dont want it to end lol. I highly recommend this Series and her other works are just as good in my opinion. I eat these books up and cant wait for the next one. So if you want a good series,but with side stories in each book this is not the book to start with but get the first one and work your way to this one. You will get caught up as these books are so hard to put down. Let me know if this helped!!!! Enjoy !!!

As always another great installment to the thrilling and enchanting Carpathian World! The Dark Series just keeps getting better! I love how Ms. Feehan is keeping the series fresh and modern but still swirled with the old world Carpathian men we all know and love! Sexy, powerful, collector of ancient carousel horses Tariq Asenguard is well known for his nightclubs all over the world in which he hopes to draw in his lifemate. He is dark, dangerous, and deadly but has never given up hope of finding her. He has also devoted his long life to battling the vampires that seek to destroy anything that is good in the world. Tariq is different from the other Carpathians, by embracing life among humans and realizing that his race has to learn to adapt because their enemies becoming more cunning by the day. 
Charlotte Vintage is on the run and desperately trying to survive with enemies at every turn. When her brother is murdered she is left to raise her young niece. Charlie and her best friend are drawn back to the states and want nothing more than to find the enemies stalking them so they can have their lives back. Finding Tariq was more than she could ever hope for in life. For the first time she feels safe and that she has a home. 
As Tariq's emotions are returned he can truly feel the fatherly love and devotion for the orphaned children in his care. He finally has his family and he will stop at nothing to see all the threats against them are gone. The same vampire that tortured his children in the past, are the same ones hunting his lifemate. He will do everything in his power to destroy the evil that is stalking his family. Charlotte not only has the love of a lifetime, she has found the children of her heart. She wants nothing more than to cherish, love and help heal their tortured souls. 
The vampires have grown even more powerful, vile, and cruel. They will stop at nothing to get their hands on Charlie and her children. The ancient hunters must come together to keep them safe. Things are changing for the Carpathian people. No one is safe. Not even humans, both men and women with psychic abilities are hunted. An ancient curse is seeking to destroy and fuel an evil the likes they have never seen. The future is ever changing and if they don't defeat this new threat the world will never be the same again. I'm absolutely ecstatic and can barely stand the wait until we get to see one of the ancients from the monastery find his lifemate!! That will for sure be a sight to see! Reviewed by Kristin

The dark series is my favorite, with that said I truly dislike the dark carousel. There were to many subplots and no real plot about the main charecters. Am thinking this might be my last book in this series . Very disappointed .

I absolutely love the Carpathian Series, I have almost all of them. However, I was too late to get the signed one, Dark Carousel by Christine Feehan. I hope in the future she does more of the signed books. Looking forward to many more adventures with the Carpathian People.

Charlotte Vintage and her friend Genevieve Marten are at the Palace, the newest dance club in the city. As they leave, Tariq Asenguard, one the owners of the club and a Carpathian, realizes his lifemate is somewhere in the building. He also realizes she is in trouble. The girls had gone to the parking garage where a good-looking man lounged against their car. This man is not as he seems and is the vampire known as Fridrick. Tariq and Maksim (club co-owner) come to the girls’ aid just in time. Tariq takes the girls to his compound and Charlotte learns that he collects carousel horses. Charlotte had worked on the restoration of carousel horses in Paris until her mentor was killed by vampires. He tells Charlotte that he had corresponded with her mentor. She is fascinated when she sees the horses in Tariq's collection but does not realize the danger they pose. I love the Dark series. When Tariq finds his lifemate, he doesn't tarry! He claims her and the sex is mind-boggling to Charlotte.

Dark Carousel is the 30th installment in the Carpathian series and it was an exquisite reading experience. This story reminded of why I fell in love with this series in the first place. We have waited a very long time for Tariq Asenguard's story and Ms. Feehan did not disappoint. Dark Carousel picked up the thread that was started with Dark Crime, Dark Ghost and Dark Promise. In this new arc, we were gifted with the exquisite new monastery ancients and the formation of a brand new Carpathian community in the United States. Charlotte and Tariq were wonderful together and the action was non-stop. There was anther very surprising and heart-warming revelation of another lifemated couple...because of age differences, their story will be about a decade in the making. I look forward to seeing this couple's story unfold over the years. The plethora historical information the ancient males, Dragomir, Siv, and Nicu provided about ancient Carpathian history was fascinating and gave the readers a whole perspective on Carpathian community. Decisions and choices that their former prince, Vlad, made centuries ago are still reverberating within the Carpathian community today. The ancients shed some new light on how the Carpathians have arrived at the brink of extinction. Thankfully, there are now some rays of real hope for this new Carpathian community and for Carpathian males across the world. With this wonderful book, it appears that the Carpathian series is back on track...the magic, intrigue, action, suspense, and romance were seamlessly woven throughout this story and promises to stake the Carpathians into a fresh, new story arc. I cannot wait for gold-eyed Dragomir and the other scary ancients to find their mates. I hope Dragomir won't be left hanging as long as Tariq was. Dark Carousel was a great read and is highly recommended
