Dark Fire (Dark Series #6) by Christine Feehan

There is always a price to pay...

So Darius warned her when she accepted a position with his traveling troupe. And gazing mesmerized at the merciless slash of his mouth, the implacable resolve on his face, the soulless emptiness of his black eyes, Tempest was afraid to ask what it was.

She had always been different, apart from others. From the moment his arms closed around her, enveloping her in a sorcerer's spell, Darius seemed to understand her unique gifts. But did his kiss offer the love and belonging she sought, or a danger more potent than his own panthers?

Somewhere deep inside herself, Tempest realized she knew the answer. She had no choice but to accept the velvet stroke of his tongue, submit to the white-hot heat piercing her skin, welcome an erotic pleasure like no other….

The Carpathian leader Darius has understood all his life his responsibility to protect his family at all costs even if others must die. Thus, he has no comprehension about a soul mate just for him. Tempest Trine is an independent person so when she joins his traveling troupe as a mechanic, he is stunned when she refuses to accept his protection. Though she thirsts to belong, she feels that the cost of allowing him to control her is too high to pay even if his kisses scorch her soul.

The vampire hunters return with a vengeance to destroy Darius and his beloved family. They may have the Achilles¿ Heel in Tempest who has gotten inside Darius¿ blood.

In her latest Carpathian tale, Christine Feehan paints an intriguing novel due to the interaction between the brooding hero and the self-reliant heroine. DARK FIRE refreshes the basic theme of the series due to Darius¿ deviant behavior when compared with previous lead males. Tempest also adds a new element with her ability to ignore efforts to erase her knowledge of the Carpathian blood sustenance. Ms. Feehan has written a strong entry in her popular series.

Just when I think I am going to give this series up because it seems the same, the next book comes along and grips me again! I loved this story. It was different and added to the series. Darius is every bit as lethal as his brother Gregori. Tempest, Darius's lifemate is human and they have to overcome a lot of different challenges. I love that Darius is willing to keep her human and live with her as humanly as possible and die with her when she passes. He is every bit the male dominating Carpathian, but has a very soft spot for her can put her needs above his own and sacrifice his immortality for her mortality. I liked that Julian and Desari were in the book, and there were a lot of funny parts, I found myself laughing out loud! On to book 7!

Another Dark Troubadour's book. This time, it is Darius, the leader of their small group, the strongest one of them. Darius had proven his strength and determination when he had brought up two females, females that are so precious to the Carpathian race to bring more children. Also having two other males to help keep them safe, he was the rock that everyone leaned on. Yet when a slip of a red-haired woman, Tempest, comes into their lives, Darius is put to the test. Tempest is indeed a spitfire. She has her own rules, just like her lifemate, and her own ideals. Tempest fights Darius, unable to take in what he offers her as a new life. She still has a human mind and runs from him, turning the book into a thriller as Darius tries to soothe his lifemate, wanting her to trust him with her life. Not only does Darius finds himself protecting his lifemate, but now he has new enemies that threaten his family. The two encounter in a twist of fate that leaves them in a fiery and passionate ride of love together.

well actually...Dark Fire was the first book out of the series that i read. I loved every bit of it! i do agree with the others that the Tempest character could have been just a bit less annoying and the whole pet names were a bit repetative...but compared to the other books, the explanation of the Carpathian race was explained more thourally than the other books. If i had started the series with something else...i would of been lost. Although i should of started at the beginning, im glad i started at Dark Fire. I just hope that every book doesnt have the whole two pet names...has anyone noticed with the other books little one...cara...honey...blah blah...There needs to be more...but other than that..keep up the good work Christine!

If you enjoy unusual love stories this is the book for you. I do not like sappy romance books. With some hunk with a baby in his arms on the cover. Ms. Feehan's books are always interesting, dark and actually erotic. No mush here. Ms. Feehan knows just how to manipulate the female mind. Where you end up reading a book till 3 am just so you can finish it. And then your left eagerly awaiting her next release. The world she creates is so vivid it's a wonderful place to escape to and dream about. The only problem with her books is that the Carpathian men are too fascinating. You'll find yourself very disappointed with human males in your own life. Dark Fire continues the excellent Dark series can't wait till the next one thank you Christine!

I have to admit that I had grown weary of the Dark Series' predictable storyline. While this story offers no real surprises, I have to say this book was still a breath of fresh air for the Dark Series. Although Tempest and Darius can't be separated, I didn't find this book as cloying as Julian and Desari's relationship in 'Dark Challenge'. In fact, unlike the last book in the series, I actually read this book over the course of days rather than getting disgusted and reading it over the course of weeks. Although both Tempest and Darius fall into the author's well developed clichés, the book is still very enjoyable. In fact, Darius actually showed some promising character development toward the end of the book. I guess my biggest gripe was how Darius could kill so many people in his efforts to protect Tempest yet never draw suspicion to himself by the police. It seems to me if all these dead bodies were piling up with no real explanation as to how it happened someone would be asking questions. But I remind myself this is fiction and I try to push those thoughts out of my head. After all, if you're reading about Carpathians, vampires, etc then you obviously have an ability to move beyond the easily explained. :)

I think that Christine rights wonderful love stories about two people who really fall for each other and just know in their hearts that this is for life. I also love the physical parts of the book. It shows just how a man sould really charish a woman. Every one loves to be loved and wanted. I recommend all the Dark series they are wonderful but make sure that you do not have any pressing duties that need taken care of because I guarantee that the time will fly by while you get caught up in her books. It is fun to go to never land in her books.

I have been following the series since the very beginning with the first printing of Dark Prince. Though I love all of them, this has got to be my favorite. It has funny scenes between Syndil and Barack as well as the love story between Darius and Tempestt. This is one series that after 8 books I am still waiting for the next one. Christine always leaves you wondering what happens next. Each book is written to stand alone, causing some phrases to be repeated, but each has its own unique story. You must read them in order starting with Dark Prince to really appreciate the series. Each starts almost where the other left off.

Close to becoming a vampire, Darius is granted a reprieve. His one and only soul mate has arrived in the form of Tempest, the nomadic music groups new mechanic. However, Tempest is human. How can this work out? Especially since Tempest has a problem believing Darius loves her as much as he does. Plus she has a little problem with claustrophobia; not to good when her boyfriend takes her into an underground cave. Danger from human vampire hunters threatens the music group along with Darius' and Tempest's budding relationship. What happens? read and find out.

This book again superseeded all my previous expectations of her talent. She has brought an ethereal combination of sensuality and emotional vulnerability to a dark and forboding character, Darius. Her heroine, Tempest, is a fiesty combination of street smarts and hidden passions. Thank you Christine for another wonderful addition to your Literary Stables.

After a much anticipated release, Ms. Feehan does not disappoint her readers with her new release, Dark Fire. Dark Fire, the sixth in her Dark Series, tells the story of Darius, the guardian of the traveling Dark Troubadours, a group of Carpathians thought to have been dead. It is wonderfully told, with the vivid details that Ms. Feehan's novels are known for. As one of Ms. Feehans devoted readers, I was one of many who pre-ordered this book. It was well worth the wait though! Ms. Feehan introduces her readers to the wonderful world of the Carpathians--writing a creative twist to the vampire genre. But the thing that I like the most (other than the amazing male characters) is she writes of heroines who are strong, courageous and yet at the same time compassionate--making them sound 'real'--a feat not many romance authors do. All I can say is I couldn't put the book down--reading it in one day!

This is one of my favorite in the series. Rarely does a series of books get this far and not get old. Actually this one would make a good movie.
