the Dark series by Christine Feehan was a nice read But for me a little slow which is why it s a 4 star and not 5 Julian and Desari are a very sweet couple and I enjoyed reading about Desari s family There is just something I love about the Carpathian series It s my Happy Zone The whole lifemate thing is so sweet I love the idea of one soul mate fated forever Though a few things happened in this book for the most part it was alaid back easy read and focusedon Julian and Desari s relationship.You seem to forget I am no fledgling but your equal Do not waste your energy attempting the impossible Destroy this vampire if you must, then return to me quickly We will discuss your conceit on the next rising Desari I want you so much, Desari, just like this, so wild with need you cannot be without me Feel it, the fire between us, my body in yours where I belong I am part of you like your heart, like your breasts He bent to lavish attention on her nipples, pulling strongly with his mouth I never want this to end JulianJulian was a very laid back chilled kinda guy He had a very sarcastic sense of humor Julian could be pretty caveman in his thinking but most of the Carpathian men are Julian had a very lonely life He had a secret that he was deeply ashamed about Julian was a quick learner when it came to women, his lifemate in particular He gave up his idea of women listening and obeying for the pipe dream it was, and learned to compromise Desari was very independent and confident in herself Desari loved her family and career and had no plans of giving them up She was an ancient like Julian so she had her own power and good control over it Desari was a bit of a trouble maker, she didn t like being dictated to Desari fought her relationship with Julian for a very short time, but for the most part jumped right in I believe in God, Julian I always have Living through the centuries as we have, I have witnessed many wonderful, miraculous things he has wrought I believe we were created two halves of the same whole I had no idea this was so until I met you, but I am now convinced I would never want another, never fit with another I can feel that we are right together, and I do not believe God would put together two creatures who did not suit one another Desari Then I will have to becareful the next time to be slow and thorough I want you to be completely satisfied in all things, lifemate Her slender arms circled his neck You know I am And if you were muchthorough, we might both be dead Julian and DesariBoth Julian and Desari were pretty accepting of finding their lifemate the bumps in their relationship werefrom learning to live together There was a lot of steamy hot sex in this book as our couple couldn t keep their hands off each other Julian and Desari got along well together and Julian fit in nicely with Desari s family You are the lifemate of a sensitive, modern male Julian s lazy amusement warmed her further, confirming what she already suspected, that he often stayed a shadow in her mind How fortunate for me Julian and Desari The way you love me, Julian, so beautifully, so much, that is the way I love you You are everything to me If only we have the next few moments together, everything that came before was worth the time we have had DesariI really loved getting to know the members of Desari s family Darius, Dayan, Barack, and Syndil Barack is a bit of a playboy He is the only Carpathian male in the whole series where they tell you he messed around with other women, not that other Carpathian males are virgins the books just don t talk about it You don t have to see it but, view spoiler Syndil is his lifemate so she had to watch for years while he ran around with human women But to Barack credit he didn t know Syndil was his lifemate, They didn t get raised with other Carpathian s They didn t know what lifemates were and they were raised as babies together So for a long time he thought his feelings were because they were raised like brother and sister When he figures out she is his lifemate he doesn t touch another hide spoiler Syndil was attacked by a vampire so she was very withdrawn, and fearful of men She carries shame feeling like she somehow caused the attack Dayan has a poet soul Dayan isof a lover not a fighter kind of guy Darius is my favorite of the group He is a lot like Gregori which is understandable since him and Desari are Gregori s lost brother and sister Darius is very powerful He has a lot of honor and raised all the others since they were babies when he was only 6 He is bossy, and arrogant of course I can t wait for Darius s book Overall a great read and a nice addition to the series You have a perfect mouth, Julian An amazingly perfect mouth He arched an eyebrow at her Just my mouth is amazing You are such a man Her eyes laughed at him You need constant reassurance that you are magnificent He nodded Magnificent I like that I could live with magnificent Good choice of words, lifemate Desari and Julian

    Finally, a heroine in this series that doesn t make me want to slap her on her mouth with a glass frog, repeatedly Instead of throwing childish tantrums to prove her adult status, Desari talks and explains like a logical human being And miracle of miracles, the hero actually listens and agrees, instead of beating his chest hair in a manly way and saying I know better, obey me silly female Just this phenomenon would be enough for me to give 4 stars to this book But. the sex scenes Someo Finally, a heroine in this series that doesn t make me want to slap her on her mouth with a glass frog, repeatedly Instead of throwing childish tantrums to prove her adult status, Desari talks and explains like a logical human being And miracle of miracles, the hero actually listens and agrees, instead of beating his chest hair in a manly way and saying I know better, obey me silly female Just this phenomenon would be enough for me to give 4 stars to this book But. the sex scenes Someone should tell Fenaan not to write them At this point, she could just write julian inserted his point A into Desari s slot B and it would be better than the flowery repetitive weirdness she spews

    I liked Julian His history was sad Desari was not my favorite I believe I thought she was a bitch early and then she became a self centered bitch So uncompromising I thought for sure at some point she would give an inch to Julian on her career or spending every waking minute with her annoying family But nope Not at all And she bitches to him about them not spending time together I liked that she was powerful in her own way I did not like the burden she placed on Julian and her family b I liked Julian His history was sad Desari was not my favorite I believe I thought she was a bitch early and then she became a self centered bitch So uncompromising I thought for sure at some point she would give an inch to Julian on her career or spending every waking minute with her annoying family But nope Not at all And she bitches to him about them not spending time together I liked that she was powerful in her own way I did not like the burden she placed on Julian and her family because she was so self centered I was confused by Darius and did not like any other member of her family The book alludes to Syndil and Barack being life mates But he has been a horndog for centuries F that If the author goes there I am done The whole lifemate thing makes the books If it is cheapened and they are allowed to coexist for centuries either not knowing or caring then it has all been bullshit Of course I think I need to read a couplebooks to figure out their story But I need a break for now The formula gets old when you read a bunch together Overall, this is totally in keeping with the series Totally safe with an independent heroine and a totally whipped alpha male

    Despite how much I enjoyed book 2, this is the book that makes the series pop for me Maybe it s the fact that a Carpathian male is matched up with a Carpathian female of equal power, not a newly turned fledgling It was nice seeing the female portrayed as someone with gifts that match her lifemate s.This is the story of Julian Savage Book 3 Aidan s twin brother who has been a solitary hunter for nearly his entire existence His lifemate is Desari, the younger sister of Gregori Book 4 , wh Despite how much I enjoyed book 2, this is the book that makes the series pop for me Maybe it s the fact that a Carpathian male is matched up with a Carpathian female of equal power, not a newly turned fledgling It was nice seeing the female portrayed as someone with gifts that match her lifemate s.This is the story of Julian Savage Book 3 Aidan s twin brother who has been a solitary hunter for nearly his entire existence His lifemate is Desari, the younger sister of Gregori Book 4 , who was believed to have been killed centuries before Raised by her incredibly strong willed brother, Darius, with 4 others who escaped the massacre, Desari has no knowledge of lifemates or the ways of the Carpathians Targeted by the human hunters who are trying to capture, study and destroy the Carpathians, Julian must protect her from both the humans and the Undead Vampires who are trying to claim her.This book progresses the overall arc of the books exponentially We re given a slew of new characters and the seeds for later stories are laid out Nice

    Another lovely addition to the Carpathian series.Dark Challenge is the story of Julian and Desari.Julian is the rebel twin of Aiden, a vampire hunter who chose to live alone after he exchanged bloods with a vampire and prepares for his end.On his last mission as requested by Gregori, he meets the gypsy singer Desari, surrounded by leopards, and finally finds his lifemate and colors.It was absolutely lovely to see two Carpathians mating I loved the family bond between Darius, Desari, Barack, S Another lovely addition to the Carpathian series.Dark Challenge is the story of Julian and Desari.Julian is the rebel twin of Aiden, a vampire hunter who chose to live alone after he exchanged bloods with a vampire and prepares for his end.On his last mission as requested by Gregori, he meets the gypsy singer Desari, surrounded by leopards, and finally finds his lifemate and colors.It was absolutely lovely to see two Carpathians mating I loved the family bond between Darius, Desari, Barack, Syndil and Dayan and absolutely cannot wait to readabout them esp Barack and Syndil.The males, esp the hero are OTT alpha, but this time again we had a strong assertive heroine who s voice had healing powers.The chemistry between the lead couple was beautiful and love filled, and it s just great to see these empty Carpathian hearts being filled with love and feelings.There is a good deal of action sequences, healing, blood drinking but it all adds up to a wonderful read.Safe4.25 5

    Qu puedo decir de mi amado Julian y de Desari Esta es la tercera vez que lo leo y me ha encantado como siempre, estoy deseando ver a los personajes en las siguientes historias.Repasemos un poco, Julian Savage es un cazador carpatiano experimentado que guarda un secreto oscuro que lo hace sentirse sin el derecho a tener lo que le ha deparado el destino, a pesar de todo es inevitable que se sienta sumamente imposibilitado de dejar de lado a su otra mitad, porque es la luz para su oscuridad, lo Qu puedo decir de mi amado Julian y de Desari Esta es la tercera vez que lo leo y me ha encantado como siempre, estoy deseando ver a los personajes en las siguientes historias.Repasemos un poco, Julian Savage es un cazador carpatiano experimentado que guarda un secreto oscuro que lo hace sentirse sin el derecho a tener lo que le ha deparado el destino, a pesar de todo es inevitable que se sienta sumamente imposibilitado de dejar de lado a su otra mitad, porque es la luz para su oscuridad, lo que lo hace enfrentarse a sus dudas y sentimientos constantemente.En cuanto a Desari, es de las primeras carpatianas ancianas que aparece dentro de la saga, y eso nos va descubriendo las posibilidades que implican los futuros personajes que aparezcan, junto con Sybill demuestran que no solo los machos pueden llegar a ser tan poderosos, lo que da un plus a esta raza creada por la autora.Por otro lado, descubrir a todo un grupo familiar del cual no se sab a su existencia es algo sorprendente, ya quiero ver los reencuentros familiares, que dar n de qu hablar Y m s cuando se empieza a hablar de los ancianos gemelos, que aparecer n pronto.Las escenas de lucha y persecuci n siguen siendo tan fuertes como en libros anteriores, y Christine sabe mantenernos en la cuerda floja rogando por nuestros amados carpatianos En contraparte, las escenas rom nticas tienen su buen parte de erotismo como de romance, haciendo que la relaci n entre los personajes tenga su equilibrio entre lucha, amor y humor, porque para Desari, ella y Julian deben tener el mismo nivel dentro de su relaci n, as que debe domar un poco al salvaje cazador.Obviamente seguir resaltando en todas las obras de la autora las geniales descripciones, tanto de los paisajes como de los personajes y sus acciones, porque me encantan Muy recomendable

    Dark Challenge is book 5 in Dark series by Christine Feehan From previous books we learned about Julian Savage who was Aidan s twin brother, who was featured in Dark Gold Desari is Gregori s younger Carpathian sister who can sing She is an ancient, but was thought to have been killed a long time ago Like all Carpathians, Julian drinks blood he can shape shift he is telepathic and he can not go out in the sun The males of the species lose their ability to see in color and can no longer fe Dark Challenge is book 5 in Dark series by Christine Feehan From previous books we learned about Julian Savage who was Aidan s twin brother, who was featured in Dark Gold Desari is Gregori s younger Carpathian sister who can sing She is an ancient, but was thought to have been killed a long time ago Like all Carpathians, Julian drinks blood he can shape shift he is telepathic and he can not go out in the sun The males of the species lose their ability to see in color and can no longer feel emotion after their 200th year.Finally a woman that doesn t fight fate I loved how she saw how she felt and wasn t scared of it or blaming him for her feelings Great paranormal, romantic suspense Julian s story is especially interesting because we are introduced to a whole new family of Carpathians The secondary story becomes just as interesting as the primary With the total Carpathian series being a definite formula, this twist added all the interest needed to keep the reader riveted This one was really good I loved Desari s story finally a Carpathian woman who s just as powerful in some waysthan her life mate The only thing that disappointed me was the story line between Barack and Syndil What happened there The female lead, Desari, wasn t a simpering human child, barely eighteen, being pounced on by a big bad, scary Carpathian male, but a strong Carpathian female with her own powers This alone, made the whole story refreshing, but I also liked the family unit, the club scene, and the dark shadow within Julian However, again the repetition is getting a bit much But, MUCH better than the previous books I m glad the author finally stepped up and made the female protagonist stronger The previous books had the main women characters too timid for my liking They allowed the male protagonists to be TOO overbearing, TOO arrogant, and TOO obnoxious.Good book

    Great paranormal, romantic suspense Julian s story is especially interesting because we are introduced to a whole new family of Carpathians The secondary story becomes just as interesting as the primary With the total Carpathian series being a definite formula, this twist added all the interest needed to keep the reader riveted The steamy scenes were alsothoughtful and easily skippable for those who prefer.
