In the 12th installment in Feehan's paranormal Dark series (Dark Symphony, etc.), she again creates a richly evocative fantasy world in which immortal Carpathian males search for their "lifemates" and battle soulless vampires. When young telepathic widow Corinne Wentworth walks into the bar where Carpathian Dayan, of the legendary band the Dark Troubadours, is playing, he immediately recognizes her as his lifemate ("He heard the soft murmur of her voice, and at once his world changed"). Difficulties lie ahead for the couple, not the least of which is that the men who murdered her husband are hunting her and her sister-in-law, Lisa. Corinne's weak heart is also a major source of conflict. The question of whether it will be strong enough to withstand her transformation from human to Carpathian may leave readers with real doubts as to whether a happy ending is in store for this well-matched pair. Though Corinne's delicate condition forces Dayan to treat her with extreme care, their love scenes still sizzle. Feehan's prose is occasionally melodramatic and her descriptions cliched ("Dayan resembled a sculpture of a Greek god"), but this may be her most emotionally engaging installment to date.

The twelfth in the Dark series featuring Carpathians, a blood-sucking superior race that battles both vampires and a fanatical antivampire organization, will be welcomed by Feehan's fans, who have superior abilities to suspend disbelief. Dayan, guitar player and singer in the band Dark Troubadours, finds the life mate who will keep him from dying or turning into a vampire in Corinne Wentworth, a pregnant widow with telekinetic powers. She has a heart condition that could end her life at any time, and she is also a target of the people who killed her husband. Dayan cannot turn her into a Carpathian until her daughter is born, but it turns into an epic struggle to keep her alive, with several Carpathians converging to save her. Diana Tixier Herald

It was not very good. This is the only one of hers I have not liked. It was dull and slow.Published on April 6 2004 by carol hartford

Sorry, but the biggest draw for vampire porn is sex. This book had too little of it, and what it had wasn't very satisfying. Also, the typos in this book drove me crazy. Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2004 by Tammy L Green
Dark Melody was a moving story but had a predictable plot. I was a tad disappointed (but not much), as a rule I really enjoy this writer.Published on Feb. 10 2004 by Judith Robards
I really enjoyed this book. It was fast moving and kept you guessing till the end. The love scenes and the struggled that the main characters go through are very realistic and... Read morePublished on Jan. 21 2004
While I love the Dark series (Dark Fire is my favorite) this was not Ms. Feehan's best effort. One of the secondary characters, Lisa, is just plain annoying. Read morePublished on Jan. 20 2004
