Book Review 📖

Dark Demon ….. by Christine Feehan… A Carpathian Novel.

Back cover ….. 

For as long as she can remember, Natalya has been fighting demons: first in the form of childhood nightmares, then later, immortal creatures that kill and prey on the innocent–including her own twin brother. Whether Carpathian or vampire, she slays those who murder by night, and has no equal–until she is seduced by the very thing she considers her enemy. . .  

A Carpathian who has seen nearly everything in his endless existence, Vikirnoff didn’t think he could be surprised anymore–until he faces a woman who rivals him as a vampire hunter. A formidable and gifted warrior in her own right, Natalya has a nature that is strangely familiar–yet alien–to his own. Who is this mysterious female who fears no one–not even him? Natalya could be the key to the survival of the Carpathians, but all Vikirnoff is certain of is that she is the key to his heart and soul. . .

          my Review…… 

This has to be one of my favourite books in the series. 

We met Vikirnoff in Dark Destiny (with brother Nicolae and Destiny) Vikirnoff was sent on a mission to find and assist a young women with psychic abilities (the society are interested in her and the vampires too) it also takes him away from killing the vampires  (he is very close to turning into the undead) and after assisting Rafael De La Cruz (Dark Secret) destroy a master vampire, the darkness is almost taken him over, but like Carpathian’s before him, he will seek the dawn before that happens, his honour is now the only thing that keeps him going (he is now not worried his brother will turn vampire as he found Destiny his lifemate) 

Natalya is on the move, something is calling her to the Carpathian Mountains. 
Taking her two friends with her, Natalya wants to know what is behind the compulsion to visit these mountains. 
There isn’t much that scares our heroine, she knows there are monsters in the world, she hunts them….. 
Natalya is a strong character, able to defend herself, she knows how to wield magic, her lineage is a revered one. Natalya is a dragonseeker (a carpathian who has never turned vampire, and is well known in the Carpathian community) she can also turn into a tiger (most Carpathians use wolf or owl form to travel, Natalya’s tiger isn’t just an image she uses, her tiger is actually a part of her (like the jaguar people) 

Vikirnoff and Natalya meet on a battleground, she is facing a vampire, he almost falls out of the tree when emotions and colour are restored to him. He’s also annoyed that she isn’t like what carpathian women ought to be (meek, stay at home and look after the children) she is the total opposite of what he was looking for in a lifemate. 

The story then continues with Natalya trying to ditch Vikirnoff at every opportunity. 
Fierce battles and a ritual bind them together, there is coming calling her to the mountains, and with or without his help, Natalya will find it….. 

The book continues to give us more information on why the Carpathian’s can’t have children. We see an evil more powerful than the society, an evil that could wipe out the Carpathians. 
We catch up with a few old characters, we meet a few new ones that are important to the story. 
It had lots of hilarious moments. It also had a few OMG moments …..
