Book Description

June 2004 Wheeler Large Print Book Series
Carpathians are an immortal race of beings with animal instincts. Every Carpathian male is drawn to his life mate: a Carpathian or human female able to provide the light to his darkness. Without her, the beast within slowly consumes the man until turning vampire is the only option.' Raven Whitney is a psychic who has used her gift to help the police track down a serial killer. Now she is determined to escape the glare of recent publicity for the peace and quiet of the Carpathian Mountains. Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky is the leader of his people but, as his ancient Carpathian race grows ever closer to extinction, he is close to giving in to the heavy weight of loneliness and despair. From the moment their minds touch, Raven and Mikhail form a connection. But there are those who incorrectly view all Carpathians as vampires, and are determined to give their extinction a helping hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't even like romance novels, & I liked it! Dec 12 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Let me just start by saying I HATE romance novels with a passion (pun intended), but decided to give this one a try since I like the vampire genre. I like this book, and coming from me, that is saying a lot!
What I didn't like: This book still has the stigma of romance novel cheesiness, although it is not as prounced in this story as in some. Using words like "sheath" and "member" to describe body parts - that just sounds stupid to me. The author is especially fond of the words "satiny," "silky," and "velvety," and she uses them on every other page, which gets old fast. Another thing I didn't like, but can't really fault the author for because her fans probably want and expect it, is the multitude of sex scenes that became repetitive and didn't really move the story along.
What I did like: Carpathians are hot. They are handsome, powerful, and when they find their life mate, they are physically and emotionally incapable of cheating on their woman. This is very much a woman's fantasy and done in a sensual way that I thoroughly enjoyed. It's also told mainly from a woman's point of view, which I also like. The story was good, and there was enough mystery, excitement, and surprise twists to keep my interest throughout.
I will definitely read the next book in the series, and I recommend this book as it is well written for its genre. If you want to read a supernatural book that has romance in it without the cheesiness and tells the story from a female perspective, I also highly recommend Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris (vampires) or Bitten by Kelley Armstrong (werewolves).

5.0 out of 5 stars So Good I Had To Read It Again March 28 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At this time, I have just read Dark Symphony (No. 9 in the Dark series)--I loved every page. And, as you can see, I wrote the review below almost 2 years ago. I just wanted to remind readers where the Carpathian legacy began and what a great book this really is to read.

Some readers will tell you that the characters fell in love too quickly; that there was no climatic "tug-of-war" of the heart. However, I believe that when you find true love, you'll know it immediately, and grab on to it with both hands, body, heart, and soul. (I knew my husband all of two months before we married--we just celebrated year number 14--and we are more than in love, we are friends, partners, and parents). For this reason, I can relate to the immediate chemistry between Mikhail and Raven.
During these times of wars and rumors of wars, I will forever keep this book on hand to reread again and again on those days and nights when I need a reminder that the simple love between a man and a woman is the reason our existence continues; even as bombs are bursting, towers are falling, and mankind's hatred seeks to destroy anyone who is of a different race, religion, gender, sexual preference...
So far I have reread Dark Prince and Dark Gold*****
An ingenious novel that takes romance to a new realm,
August 2, 2001
Reviewer: Michele Bowie (see more about me) from Marietta, GA United States
A good romance novel is an interesting read. An excellent one touches your heart. However, a masterpiece is truly an unforgettable piece of art that will be forever etched in nostalgia like the Beetles, Woodstock, The Wizard of Oz...and anything written by the late Barbara Courtland. For me, Dark Prince is such a novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars a nice debut April 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I first read "Dark Prince" over one year ago and liked the entire premise. However, you knew it was Ms. Feehan's first foray into writing, as it was stilted, choppy and certain words and phrases such as "creamy" (cringe)kept popping up. (She needs a thesaurus). However, for some reason, I did like it. Since this first novel was published in 1999, I started looking for the sequels to this book in the hope that Ms. Feehan's craft would improve, as she kept on. It has - but unfortunately, the formula is now getting stale and old. The heroines are all the same (weak, childish, and insipid). I would love to see a woman who is strong - both emotionally and somewhat physically; someone who could take care of herself to some degree. I recently purchased "Wild Rain" (not a Dark Series book) and couldn't finish it, because it's always the same. The woman in the book just can't seem to figure out what's going on, even when it bites her in the ---. I will go ahead and buy the next Dark Series book in the hope that the series will get better. I wish Ms. Feehan would take the time to develop her characters,instead of trying to put out the most quantity in a year's time. (I believe she has five publications due out in 2004). I would love it if she wrote one really great book a year instead of five mediocre stories that are all just repeats of the five she wrote the year before. I believe she has the talent to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of romance Nov. 17 2003
By Chalice
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Most romance novels follow a general formula, and even paranormals are no exceptions. Ms. Feehan's Carpathians, however, add certain elements that captivate the reader and give the series an exciting edge that makes the books difficult to put down.
Carpathians are a sort of pre-Vampire creature. Vampires themselves are not necessarily new to paranormal romances, but making Carpathians a different sort of creature altogether voids the usual good vs evil struggle so common to vampire paranormals. There is a different struggle in these books: the struggle to find external goodness, in the guise of a light-bearer, the other half of the soul, that is, one's lifemate.
Within Dark Prince, Ms. Feehan has juxtaposed evil creatures from both the supernatural and the human world, showing cleverly that the main lovers of the story will indeed perhaps be able to live happily ever after. After all, if evil can come together, how much more can good come together?
Mikhail and Raven are strong protagnoists, for the most part. Raven is, at times, a bit whiney. However, we will allow that, as she has been thrust into a strange world made of strange creatures who drink blood and shapeshift. Mikhail is a bit dictatorial at times. We will, however allow that, though, since he is used to commanding the elements on a regular basis. And in truth, what good characters don't have flaws?
Another strong point of this book is that it sets up the rest of the series while at the same time never neglects the main story. Be prepared to purchase the other books in the series if you haven't already. The weakest point of the book, in my opinion, is the author's portrayal of Raven.
