Book Description

Dec 2 2004 Wheeler Large Print Book Series
As a child, Destiny saw her family butchered by a vampire who then attacked her and turned her into a creature of the night. The only thing that saved her sanity was a strange psychic connection with a soothing male voice that gave her hope and taught her how to survive. Nicolae Von Shrieder is an ancient Carpathian vampire hunter, and it is he who has been helping Destiny. Convinced she is his lifemate, he has been desperately searching for her, as only she can save him from turning into the very abomination he hunts. Destiny however, does not recognise any difference between Carpathians and vampires and repeatedly refuses his advances.But, for the first time, vampire forces are gathering together in a deadly unified plot against the Carpathians. Nicolae must find a way to earn Destiny's trust, and fast, as they may be the only ones able to unravel the secret that could save the Carpathian race from total destruction.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Prolific Feehan (Dark Melody, etc.) continues her supernatural Dark series with this 13th installment, the first to feature a female Carpathian. Though Carpathians roam the streets at night and gain strength from feeding on blood, they only kill evildoers and vampires. Transformed into a night creature when she was a child, Destiny is unlike any of Feehan's previous heroines. Her physical strength is equal to that of her Carpathian counterpart, Nicolae Von Shrieder, but she's horrified by what she is and haunted by memories of her parents' brutal murder. Nicolae merged his mind with hers when she was first transformed, and through their mental connection, he taught her how to survive. Now Nicolae must find Destiny and make her his lifemate, or he will succumb to darkness and become a vampire. Feehan's protagonists and prose can be overwrought ("His body was hard and full, aching for her.... and deep within, the crouching beast lifted its head and roared for release"), and inconsistencies litter the text (Destiny can supposedly read Nicolae's mind, but it takes her eons to trust him and stop threatening to kill him). However, the story has sufficient sensuality to keep readers sated, and fans should appreciate Feehan's unusual pairing of two Carpathians.

From Booklist

Destiny saw her family slain by a vampire, who then raped her and turned her into one of the undead. But through a telepathic link with Nicolae, a member of the Carpathians, who hunt vampires, she survives, and becomes fond of her Seattle neighbors. Then, as she drags Mary Ann, a woman who rescues battered women, into a church to save her from a vampire, Destiny discovers that she herself is not a vampire because she can enter holy ground and see herself in a mirror. Nicolae, who has been seeking his life mate for centuries, finally finds her, and together they fight to save the neighborhood from evil both vampiric and human. This out-of-the-ordinary romance is deeply sensuous with exquisitely detailed lovemaking and equally vivid paranormal battle scenes involving shape-shifting, running up walls, heaving fireballs, and dragons erupting from the earth. Although this is part of Feehan's popular Dark series, it's quite accessible to readers new to the world of the Carpathians. Diana Tixier Herald

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome book July 20 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this book, Mrs. Feehan has shown that even through the toughest adversity the goodness of a persons heart and soul shine through.
The Heroine of this book, Destiny, underwent physical, mental and emotional abuse throughout her childhood and was still able to show an inner strength and a will to survive. Once again Christine has given us a strong hero who knows that with true love all things can be conquered and a heroine who has to learn that being strong sometimes means needing someone to lean on.
This book has action, romance, suspense and even small amounts of comedy. For the first time in her Dark series Christine has given a woman the role of a hunter, and she has done so with a beautifully written story that takes you further into the shadow world she started in Dark Prince.
Destiny is a woman who thinks she is doomed to spend her life alone because of a horrible attack by a vampire when she was a child but Nicolae is determined to win her heart and prove to her that they belong together not just now but for eternity and he will do whatever it takes to make her understand that. The secondary characters in this story make it even better as you get caught up in their world and what happens to them and how Nicolae and Destiny will do anything to protect them from harm.
If you enjoy action, romance and suspense pick this book up and give it a try..you will not be disappointed. You might actually find yourself entering another world, full of shadows, night creatures and those who call that world home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmmmm. What a great feeling..... July 19 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another wonderful book by Christine Feehan. I loved her portrayal of Destiny as a victim of child abuse, it was dead on, compelling, and inspiring in how she handled Destiny's trust issues. Nicholae is the perfect male - putting her needs first, encouraging her, moving at her pace, allowing her to heal and to make up her own mind about their relationship. It was a story of healing and hope.
I for one, hope that Ms. Feehan continues in her quest to bring child and spousal abuse into the light of day. What a triumph for those who have been victimized to see a heroine in a book by a best selling author who mirrors their own fears and needs. If she has reached ONE woman or child who have been abused and given them hope for themselves through this book, she has done her job and done it admirably.

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting way to complicated and off topic July 23 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ok I am have really enjoyed the Dark Series so far, but Christine is getting way too bogged down with the history of the Carpathians. She keeps mentioning the Morrison Center, the connections with Wizards and the human pyschics who can be converted.
Each new human femaled introduced is more powerful than the last. From Raven who would get ill being around evil people to Dayan's lifemate who could make things move with her mind. These women are getting more and more boring. The first stories were great....how the hero would be stunned at meeting his lifemate, convincing her, a couple of vampire fights, and happily everafter. Now it's, oh you are Carpathian, you drink blood, you want me to...ok no problem. Piece of cake.
Yes, the guys are now actively looking for lifemates and are not surprised when they find them, but the women don't seem to be either.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a series kind of person and, July 22 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoy reading books that start off as a series and going forward with a long drawn out ending forcing the reader to go from book to book to see how things turn out for the hero/heroine, sadly, this is the first (CF) book I have read and out of order at that but the good news is that I LOVED IT and have ordered the books ahead of this one. I can't wait to get started on them!

4.0 out of 5 stars The series continues July 21 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is probably one of the best books I've come across in a long time. The only other two that knocked my socks off were "Shadow Divers" and "The Bark of the Dogwood." I would of course recommend "Dark Destiny" to anyone who's a fan of the series already, because while Feehan does tend to go off on her cause tangents and get a little preachy, the book still works well as part of the series and furthers the storyline of the Carpathians in general. Also, there are three contributions to the series that came before it: Dark Symphony, Dark Melody, and the story in the anthology The One and Only: Read them all if you get a chance.
