Dark Melody ….. Christine Feehan…. A Carpathian Novel
Back cover …..
Lead guitarist of the Dark Troubadours, Dayan was renowned for his mesmerizing performances. His melodies stilled crowds, beckoned, seduced. And always, he called to her to complete him. Corinne Wentworth stood at the vortex of a gathering storm. Pursued by the fanatics who’d murdered her husband, she was risking her life by keeping more than one secret. Fragile, delicate, vulnerable, she had an indomitable faith that made her fiery surrender to Dayan all the more powerful.
My Review ….
Dayan is a musician, songs and music flow from his soul. But his soul is being slowly consumed by the darkness, he is close to turning vampire, the only thing keeping him from turning is his family and music.
Corinne has always been poorly, born with a weak heart she has never been overactive, but she has done plenty with her life, she was happy until the day her world was ripped apart …..
Dayan has taken time away from his “family” they are all happily mated except for him, and he is happy for the males in his family (finding their other half, keeps them from turning into a vampire) but it reminds him that he is alone, so travelling with his “human” friend Cullen (we met him in a previous book) they stop for Dayan to play some music.
Corinne is persuaded to go out for the evening, but she’s not really in the mood. But her best friend Lisa convinces her and they go to the local bar.
Dayan is (singing/playing guitar) when he senses something ……
Then he sees HER …. his senses are overloaded …
Finding his “lifemate” brings out all sorts of emotions, from joy, to sorrow, intense colours bombard him.
But there is something wrong with his lifemate 🙁
When they finally talk, Dayan is shocked to know she had a weak heart, but that can be solved by converting her from human to Carpathian, but Dayan is in for a bigger shock ……
I liked this story, it focused more on the characters than the sex side.
Corinne is a strong character, she doesn’t let her heart problem get in the way of life. She takes care of family and friends, her love of life is brought to life on the page.
