In Dark Demon, the realm of the mighty Carpathians is shaken by a powerful and perilous union.

A shape-shifter, Natalya hunts those who kill by night. Searching for vampires and Carpathians high in the mountains, she is as deadly as she is beautiful. Vikirnoff, a Carpathian, also hunts vampires, but his people are Natalya's enemies. One night, Vikirnoff joins Natalya in a vicious clash with vampires. Although the two are victors, the battle between their hearts and souls has just begun. Can desire overcome their ancestral enmity?

Sensuous language and strands of Carpathian lore add sumptuous layers of pleasure to Dark Demon, which captured the number-two spot on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly best seller lists.

    " Finally a pair-off that I didn't want to completely strangle either of the two in it. "

    " Too much sex, I will not be reading her again. An interesting story, but it was hard to keep up with all the sex going on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica Hall | 2/3/2014

    " This was my first book by this author. I truly didn't expect what I got. She was able to create a very complex and vulnerable lead character, whom I believe was very relatable. Very quick and engrossing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 1/26/2014

    " Natalya and Vikirnnoff. The author's books take a different turn and become more modern. We explore more of the Carpathian mountains and delve deeper into her characters' stories. The female protagonist is a bit blunt, but I like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meagan | 1/22/2014

    " I loved this book!! I read it so many times "

    " I can't help myself. I keep going back to Christine Feehan's Carpathian books, even though some of the recent ones have been less than stellar. (I gave the previous one 6/10 and wasn't exactly bowled over by it.) I still like the basic premise and I like the way she's been developing an overall story arc lately. I like the addition of the wizards and now there are dragons as well, which always gives a story or series extra points in my book. So I read the bad ones, enjoy the good parts of those and keep hoping the next one will be good.I had high hopes for Dark Demon. More for the heroine - we met Natalya briefly in Dark Destiny where it was clearly indicated that Vikirnoff would be her lifemate - than the hero, who seemed to be a typically over-alpha male such as Feehan writes regularly and really needs to tone down. Happily, she did. Vikirnoff had some nice, steady character development as he discovered that he hadn't really had a clue when he's imagined the perfect lifemate and that Natalya is exactly what he both wants and needs. Natalya too moved steadily from seeing him as an enemy to loving him. She also had a good and sensible reason for disliking and distrusting him at first, that dissolved as she got to know him. Too often, Feehan's heroines move from "I hate you, I hate you, I hate you" to "I love you" over the course of about a page and without any truly sensible reason for doing so beside the fact the author deems it time. Dark Demon escaped this common problem and was a much better and stronger book for it.Natalya is part Carpathian, part mage, part tiger - the granddaughter of a Carpathian woman stolen away from her lifemate by a dark wizard to bear his children and thereby make him immortal. She has been indoctrinated since childhood to hate the Carpathians, seeing hunters and vampires as the same kind of evil. She has come to the Carpathian mountains under a compulsion she doesn't understand, aware she is followed and hunted all the way. Virkinoff is one of those following her, determined to find her for reasons he doesn't fully understand himself since seeing her picture back in his brother's book, Dark Destiny. Their meeting shows him she is his lifemate - something she's not convinced about - and from there the story takes off, mixing romance, vampires, dark pasts, Carpathian history and a whole lot of potential disaster. While the immediate problems are solved within this book, there's clearly still evil out there with plans against all the Carpathians and especially the prince.We're clearly building towards a major confrontation here, which may or may not take place in the upcoming reunion book Dark Celebration. Like I said, I can't help myself I keep reading the books and hoping each time I'll get a good one rather than the opposite. I hope Feehan can stay with the tone and set up she produced in this book. It was a good self-contained story and a good step along the overal story arc as well. Keep it up, Christine. Please don't backslide again.Oh, and I loved the revelation of previously unknown elements to the long time alliance between Mikhail's family and Gregori's family.

    " Again, I can't quite recall when I read this book, but I know it was the first of this series that I sampled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimmybkworm | 4/24/2013

    " This was the first book in the Carpathian series that I read and was just amazed by the eroticism and sensuality that just jumped off the pages. It made me want to be a vampire hunter and find my own carpathian lover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyn Mckenzie | 4/12/2013

    " I cant rate Christine Feehan highly enough in ALL her books i have read which includes the Dark Series and The Ghostwalkers. Her talent for drawing you into the story is unbelievable! Would give more than 5 stars if i could!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele Hilts | 3/14/2013

    " When a writer is good at telling a story, there isn't much to get in the way of that story. Christine is a good story teller and very graphic with her words. Close your eyes and imagine what I am telling you is the secret to this book. "

    " Decent book. Quick read. Typical Carpathian novel. My only problem is that they seem to know each other way too soon. It moved too quickly for me. "

    " I have read about a dozen of Christine Feehan's Dark series but not in about 6 years. It was good to pick one up again and now I want to catch up on those I have missed. "

    " I'm not normally a fan of the Dark series, but I liked the strong, sassy heroine Natalya, and Vikirnoff was over protective without being too controlling. Natalya comes out with some funny one-liners and Vikirnoff develops a sense of humour as the plot thickens. An enjoyable read. "
