So far we've only met one - Solange. How the hell did I get to be so lucky to have someone like you be my lifemate? Locked together just like this. Now, with a blood-sworn vow of honor, mercy and endurance, and under the influence of a siren as bewitching as Branislava, Zev begins to wonder what his purpose is, what it means for the future of the Carpathians and what it is about his rebirth that he has to fear…. It felt like this was stated every other page. . Очень незначительные повреждения обложки, в том числе потертости, но без проколов или надрывов.
But he begins to question his past when he awakens in the sacred cave of warriors--and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries: Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan. Fen stood there dripping wet, his clothes soaked and his hair hanging in long tails. She flicked her finger toward Fen, and water poured down over his head. I am a writer and have been almost my entire life. This series is so long I know that they all can't be winners, but I hope I get Gary and Josef's stories before this series ends, maybe even Gregori's daughters!! There is a danger plot, which you might think could possibly give you a decent alternative to the romance, but you would be wrong.
It's ridiculous and it adds to this caricatourish villains. When male Carpathians are deprived of females though they lose all emotion as they begin to see the world in black and white, before fully turning into a vampire in the more traditional sense. This not the place to start. She does have that same little character flaw. There is no such thing as a character flaw in a Dragonseeker woman.
Zev uses angry sex to punish Brankie. Zev was nice in other books, but in this one is even abusing at times. That brings me to one of my favorite quotes and by favorite, I mean cringe-worthy : …his tongue plunged deep and drew the cinnamon honey he craved from her body. Zev never expected to find a mate but from the moment he laid eyes on Bratislava, his world changed. I love everything she does. Cross-posted Dark Blood by Christine Feehan is the 3rd and final book in this Dark trilogy that began with Dark Lycan, then Dark Wolf, leading to this one. Now he has been reborn after he had a lethal wound.
It answered all the questions we readers have been waiting for over the last 2yrs or more starting with Dark Lycan. Her debut novel Dark Prince received Christine Feehan is a 1 New York Times bestselling author multiple times over with her portfolio including over 70 published novels, including five series; Dark Series, Ghostwalker Series, Leopard Series, Drake Sisters Series, the Sisters of the Heart Series and Torpedo Ink. Everything about her was feminine, yet he knew deep inside that she was a woman who would walk beside him, fight beside him and go through every hardship laughing with him, if he won her love. Long and empty conversations are not giving sufficient information for readers to even begin to like the protagonists of this book, and the way they act through it is even worse. The teasing and how they helped each other Seeing some of my beloved characters in this series again The scene that begins with Zev dancing with Bran and becomes a family reunion when everyone joins in, including the children. Go back 26 books and start there with Prince Mikhail and Raven and read your way to here. Also, I wondered where Natalya was.
There was a small silence. From the plot progression, to the relationship, to the sex, it was all just bad. Locked away for his own protection, the time has now come for his rebirth, for his blood to stir with that of the ancient warriors before him. The story made no sense. This is the third book in the sub-trilogy featuring the Lycans. If they found a baby all alone, especially if they could see evidence that the parents were killed by the Sange rau they would have raised the child as their own. Apparently, Christine Feehan finds it very cool that she has made up her own language with the Carpathian people.
Enter Captain Ryland Miller who fears for his life. Why I Read This Book: After reading the previous 25 in the series I figured I should keep reading—wrong! The storyline the triplets high mages felt a little too convenient. When I say that they speak to me, I mean that I know what their voice is. There are so many things wrong with it, I barely know where to start. When a series gets into 20+ books, it had better have that extra special something, otherwise the novelty wears off.

The bottom line is that this series doesn't seem to have the magic that it had when it first started! However, the Carpathians are nearing extinction due to a scarcity of females to mate with. Dark Blood is a bloodline.
Don't waste your money, go found something actually readable and good. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan… Mother Earth called the ancients to witness your rebirth… For this half-mage, half-Carpathian temptress, the ritual of awakening Zev to the council of warriors was the only way to save him. It might just be time for Feehan to leave this series and write something else. I was glad to find out how Zev got a lifemate so fast and the reason he was drawn to Branislava even when we thought he was just wolf, was because he was part Carpathian all along. I appreciate the reviews and hope that more will come. Their are many surprise in Dark Blood. Yes, there is grudge sex and aggressive sex, but the heroine is actually into that.
