Manolito De La Cruz knew he was dangerously close to turning into a vampire. The last thing he expected after being called back to his Carpathian homeland by Prince Mikhail was to catch the scent of his destined lifemate in MaryAnn Delaney. MaryAnn is human, but she knows all too well the overwhelmingly aggressive instincts of Carpathian males. And they’re not exactly the kind of men she’d prefer to be bound to for life.

A dedicated counselor for battered women, MaryAnn has a fulfilling life with no room for someone like Manolito, born and bred in the Carpathian Mountains, a law unto himself. But when MaryAnn agrees to go to South America to offer guidance to a brutalized young woman, she has no idea of the trap that awaits her in the sweltering thick of the jungle. She has been lured there by Manolito himself, who has seductive plans for the unaware, irresistibly human female.

Once there, she will be his. Once his, she will never be released. He is her lover, her predator, her lifemate. She is his dark possession.…

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bunnita (Worth Reading It?) | 2/20/2014

    " This is my favorite of the series. Probably because the main characters are different than I expected. A Black woman and a Latin man as main characters certainly surprised me. I loved the werewolf angle. I did ask her if she would re-visit the characters. It would be interesting to see how the Carpathian and Werewolf merger worked out. But she said that she has so many characters she would like to write about that once she has written about a couple they will never be the main focus of a book again. Too bad! "

    " WOW!!! Christine Feehan and her dark series never ceases to surprise and amaze me!!! Excellent story and the ending was great. With each book they get better and better. I thought the conclusion of #16 Dark Demon was awesome, but than she turned around and topped it with Dark Possession!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angelica | 2/10/2014

    " I tried to read this, got maybe 20 pages read, gave it the benefit of doubt, read another chapter, and completely lost interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy | 2/3/2014

    " Amazing book! best yet for her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie Lozano | 1/31/2014

    " It was pretty good. The only thing that drove me nuts is Mary Ann's fear of life and everything else. I feel there should be more adjustmant throughout the book. It seemed like right near the end there was one scene where she became brave and was just magically transformed. Also the ending could've had a little more about her new life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Lap | 1/30/2014

    " I thought this book was fairly scattered and rushed. It had many different storylines intersecting with each other from previous books, or hinting at future books. I think I got more from it than someone who is not familiar with the series would have. I knew who all the people referenced were from reading the entire series. Someone starting here would be fairly lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/29/2014

    " This story includes a very interesting, and unexpected, twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 * Kazzy * -aka Stryker- | 1/18/2014

    " Enjoyed this one too, definitely worth a read and the series has got so much better as it has gone on. I really loved the characters in this one; Manolito is such a sweetie, even though he starts off all 'hard arse' and bossy (like all these Carpathian males)! he turns into a big slush puppie!! It was good to have a new character introduced too, (werewolf) which put a different spin on things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 1/14/2014

    " overbearing vampires and smut, great for a quick rainy-day read but not anything I would recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manda | 1/14/2014

    " Brilliant series, have a go at them! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Talia | 1/3/2014

    " Disappointing. Normally I can't put these books down but this one I HAD to put down every 50 to 100 pages. A little boring, slow to develop even though I knew exactly where the story was going. Maybe i'll reread it and love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 12/30/2013

    " Not my favorite in this series, but not a bad book. First 2/3 I didn't like much, but went really fast. The last 1/3 was great... and a great spin to the store. One thing I do really love about these books, is you get to hear about other characters from previous books and what is going on with them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 12/16/2013

    " Manolito De La Cruz and MaryAnn Delaney "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 12/14/2013

    " I, who swore I would never like one of the De La Cruz brothers (if you're a reader of the series, you get it), loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Blackmore | 12/11/2013

    " Enjoyable in the same way all Feehan's books are. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa (T) Toten | 8/4/2013

    " Once again, Christine Feehan has lived up to her title of reigning queen of the paranormal romance. Dark Possession is yet another exciting adventure in the dark and sensual world of the Carpathians. I recommend this book for anyone who loves a great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane (PS) | 5/20/2013

    " Yup - really enjoyed this book. There was more dimension to the book with additional characters who had a real role in the unfolding story. Hope they continue more along this line than those first few books. (Note: I read this out of order, as I am actually only up to Dark #6 (Darius/Tempest story). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jewel | 4/22/2013

    " I would have given this a slightly higher rating if the main characters actually did something else other than have sex. I acknowledge how important it is but come on, there's so much more to developing romantic relationships! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Llewellyn | 1/5/2013

    " I love the Carpathians (I wish they were real!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah O'Hara | 10/21/2012

    " I enjoyed learning about the lycans in this book. it gave the story a nice twist. The conflict was a little odd, or rather the conflict resolution was. All that happened was some mental anguish. It was weird. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 10/4/2012

    " awsome series with suspense, love, violence, the ultimate story. love it. most favorite series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy anderson | 4/14/2012

    " well i really liked the storyline, but smut galore- had to skip more than 40 pages of straight porn, too bad she is a good writer "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 1/16/2012

    " My least favorite book of the series. Completely confusing. The hero is a great guy, but he spends so little time with the heroine that it leaves your head reeling. But very exciting and suspenseful. More Urban Fantasy I suppose... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dani | 1/6/2012

    " I really loved this book. A nice introduction to the Lycans that were believe to be extinct. Manolito journey to getting his spirit rejoined with his body was fascinating. I liked how I finally go to meet Vlad and Sarantha. Here's to more Carpathian/Lycans! "

    " Meh. I love vampire novels but this theme is getting really played out. It does have some really raunchy sex scenes. One thing I may try sometime. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MRS | 1/6/2011

    " The story in this particular installment wasn’t quite as compelling as some have been. I did like the werewolf/Carpathian thing, though. "
