REVIEW: Dark Gold – A Carpathian series novel # 3 by Christine Feehan

I listened to the audio book during my road trip to Texas.  This review will be shorter than the others, as I will not have any saved text to share with you.

Dark Gold is the Carpathian story of Aidan and Alexandria.  This book si wonderfully amazing and I really enjoyed listening to Juanita Clark read it to me.

Aidan, a vampire hunter that has existed alone for many centuries.  Sent to America to help protect the humans from the vampire predators, Aidan has known very few.  Alienated from his people, he only exists with honor.  Only exists to rid the world of his fallen brethren.

Alexandria is a talented graphics artist who is trying to land a job as the new designer for a totally rockin awesome vampire game being released.  Her parents died, and she has been left alone to care, to provide and raise her six-year-old brother.  Living in hell holes, scrounging for money and food to keep them moving forward, she loves Joshua dearly and will do anything to keep him safe and give him what she hopes will be a bright future.

Kidnapped by a vampire who claims her as his mate, she and Joshua suffer through caves flooded by tides, violence and terror from the vampire, and attempted double suicide to avoid the terrible existence of what she knew would come.

Rescued by Aidan, whom believes her a deranged vampiress, Aidan and Alexandria begin the relationship progression that all Carpathians must endure.  He wants her.  He is tormented by his inner demons.  She defies him and refuses to accept that she is no longer human.  Yadda yadda …

The vampires want nothing more than to claim Alexandria, to use her psychic abilities in hopes to bring emotion and color back into their lives.

This take is beautiful and I definitely recommend this to all mature adults in need of brilliant entertainment.  Moderate to extremely descriptive violence (woo hoo) and extreme sexual content.  This book focusses more on the fear of attacks and the struggles within their relationship.  Although the sexual content finally comes forth, there is very little.

I do not advise immature adults to read this book.  This warning is to those whom refuse to acknowledge that their children are NOT young adults.  They are children.  Know better.

~Happy reading!

REVIEW: Dark Desire – A Carpathian series novel # 2 by Christine Feehan

Dark Desire is the Carpathian story of Jacques and Shea.

I listened to the audio book during my drive to Texas, so obviously ..  I have made no notes to insert into this review.

Jacques story is extremely intense and incredibly brutal.  Captured by vampire hunting fanatics, he is held prisoner for over 7 years.  Tortured.  Complete agony.  After so many years, the physical wounds can heal but the mental ones have made him deadly dangerous and unpredictable.

Sensing the presence of a female, he believes her as his betrayer.  He sees in color.  He knows she is his lifemate.  The rage festering his insides lashes out at her, forcing her body to endure the torture he experiences.

Shea, a brilliant surgeon, has a rare blood disease that she has been researching for a cure.  Her mother lived a shell  of a life before committing suicide on Shea’s 18th birthday.  Fleeing from everything she has known, Shea succumbs to Jacque’s compulsion.  She visits the Carpathian mountains to continue her research and learn more about her father whom she has never met.

Finding Jacques and saving him from the tomb he lived in, the battle of wills begins as she attempts to heal him.  He attacked her, yet she couldn’t leave him.  She had to save him.

This book is long and repetitious.  75% of this book is based on the struggles between Shea and Jacques and his mental state.  I can appreciate fighting inner demons.  But this book was a bit much.  Enough already.

I recommend this book to mature adults reading this series.  Extreme violence and sexual content.

~Happy reading!
