Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan revisits and expands her classic novella Dark Descent, bringing to breathtaking new life her story of an immortal Carpathian hunter, a beautiful adventurer, and their dangerous journey toward an unforeseen destiny and an undying love.

In a cave of mystery and wonder deep in the Carpathian Mountains, bodyguard Joie Sanders encounters a most remarkable being. Proud, strong, immortal, he is called Traian—an ageless hunter locked in a life-and-death battle with enemy vampires—and he will be her salvation in a labyrinth protected by the ingenious traps of a mysterious ancient race. What awaits them in the darkness is not known, and each step could be their last—as their destined path leads them toward a fiery passion that will illuminate the perilous dark night.

Also includes the previously published Carpathian short story Dark Dream.

    READ THIS REVIEW!

    For those of you complaining that this is just a re-issue and that you wasted your money buying it: READ THE OVERVIEW FIRST! It says right in the synopsis and on the cover that some of the stories were previously published! However, it clearly states in the begining of the overview, "Christine Feehan revists and EXPANDS her short novella Dark Descent." That means it is an old story but with new content. She's added at least 100 new pages to Dark Descent making it longer and explaining a few more things that weren't in the original story line. It's not false advertising, it's not the author trying to make more money, it's just an opportunity to publishing two of her short stories together for the convenience of her readers while also expanding a story she felt should have been longer the first time. If your happy with the original story, fine but don't give bad reviews because you didn't pay attention to what you were buying. LEARN TO READ THE OVERVIEW CAREFULLY PEOPLE!!!

    Unabridged

    This is without a doubt a reprint of Dark Descent. It has been extended and added to. Think of this as the unabridged version and the orininal as the Abridged version. Its a good read but not much plot detail was added. You get everything you need from the original Dark Descent but this gives more decscription. Dont buy if you are looking for a new book, however it is good for those people looking to revisit old favorites.

    Two books under new name

    There should be a law about false advertizing, selling books by a new name and not telling you, You would think the publisher and aurthor would have made enough money the first time around, I am just sorry I missed the reviews before I to spent money on something I already own, They should be ashamed

    Lets just recap VERY calmly here people....... from overview:

    Lets just recap VERY calmly here people.......

    from overview:

    "author Christine Feehan revisits and expands her classic novella Dark Descent, bringing to breathtaking new life her story of an immortal Carpathian hunter"

    "Also includes the previously published Carpathian short story Dark Dream"

    However unless you are a member of Christine's web site you would have not had all the details about the book the rest of us have had. The description and chatter about this book went on for days into months. For me, i am super glad Christine re-issued these two stories. I have previously read my aunt's older copies, but i have waited a whole year to finish my collection because i learned she was releasing these two novella's together on her web site!! I can't wait to receive my copy!!

    Smj's review

    Dark Nights is are-issue of two of CF's short stories Dark Dream, which is one of my absolute favorite storys in the storys in the series. Falcon and sara are one of my favorite couples in the series, at times the story was emotional and gripping it made you want to cry. I loved Dark Dreams so much it wasworth paying the 7$ to get it on my nook alone. Christine's short story Dark Desent is also in Dark Nights. To be honest I read the original version years ago and it was not one of my favorites, however i love the new expanded veriin it feels much richer and more fleshed out. I actually found myself liking the characters more in this version with also adds more to the overall plot of the series this bookis definitely a must have for CF fans.

    Feehan fan

    I love her books but it would be nice to know that it was not a new book. I already own this in paperback and was looking to expand my collection. Can't wait for something that is actually new!

    Well done!!

    As members we learned from Christine's Site that she was very unhappy with one of her short stories. She was given the opportunity by her publishers and editors to "finish" Dark Descent. As stated in the overview above, I also feel she did a tremendous job bringing new life to this wonderful novella with the extra 100 pages she was allowed!! The icing on the cake was including Dark Dream (previously released in Dark Dreamers)!!

    Also when i was going through all the reviews posed, it was a little disappointing to read that the book was rated with one star because of technical problems with your tablets/e-readers.... I guess what i am getting at is why a book was even rated when it could not be read?? The negative review should have been left for the device that was being used or the company who issued the pre-ordered e-book. I just feel that it is not right that an author is punished because of technical errors....

    Let me VERY calmly explain that the overview I see on my nook shop page DOES NOT mention anything about expanding stories or reprints.

    Repeats

    Traian & Joie - Falcon & Sara wonderful stories both but dont waste your money on re reads - if a new sentence or paragraph or chapter was added its still not worth it - this a

    Nook Overview does not state it is a rewrite

    ?... in fact it just says it is a Carpathian novel that was released in 10/12. No wonder people feel ripped off.

    Nook review should be the same as what is in the actual book....shame on you B&N

    What?

    My over view doesn't say a word about this being an up dated version! The over view reads exactly like the over view on the book "THE ONLY ONE" I don't where you read that but sure wasn't here!
    I love Christine Feehan's books and I own them all. If you ever want to know about her books and what is being released, go to her web site. It's a great site full of info on all of her books and what she has in store for us.
    These two books are awesome, enjoy!
