Book Review ๐Ÿ“–

Dark Ghost (A Carpathian Novel) by Christine Feehan 

Back Cover……

He wasn’t civilized or tame. He had his own code and he lived by it.
Monk. Bounty hunter. Vampire slayer. Andre Boroi has spent centuries battling the undead, holding out against the dark with honor. But now, gravely wounded by master vampire Costin Popescu, Andre will be easy to track – his spilled blood marking the killing trail for Popescu and his hungry band of underlings. Andre’s only chance is to disappear into the gray mist of the Carpathians. To wait. To hope.

She had a healing touch and a scent that was his lifeblood.

In the mountains in search of a precious crystal, geologist Teagan Joanes suddenly finds herself hunted by those she once trusted. Then she comes across the warrior- wounded, wanting and irresistible. Andre has been craving her for an eternity: his lifemate. Her warmth envelops him. Her scent pulsates. And with every beat of her heart, Teagan surrenders to a passion she can’t possibly comprehend.

Now they are bound by destiny, but is it enough to keep them safe from a stalking, relentless darkness that threatens to swallow them alive?

My Review…. 

Weโ€™ve met Andre a few times in previous books….
Andre is classed as an ancient, he has lived in a colourless and emotionless world for centuries, his only reason for holding out now is his honour and duty to the Carpathian people. 
Fighting the vampires have become a dangerous thing (if he gives in to the darkness) he feels he is becoming more and more like the thing he hunts. 
Teagan is a geologist, sheโ€™s searching for certain gems to help her Grandmother (sheโ€™s losing her mind, muttering about vampires and monsters) no one believes Granny Trixie, so Teagan needs to find these gems. 
After fighting a master vampire, Andre is mortally wounded, dragging himself to a cave, he weaves safeguards (he knows he wonโ€™t stop the vampire from finding him, but he hopes to slow him down, giving him time to heal) he intends to take the master vampire with him, but heโ€™s not sure he has the strength. 
Teagan is being drawn towards a cave, certain she will find the gem she is looking for, Teagan comes to find more than a gem…. 

This story is rather slow, we spend a lot of time recovering in the cave. We spend far too long having sex (pages and pages and pages๐Ÿ™„) but on the plus side, it was nice to have a more understanding Carpathian (most are far too arrogant and domineering) it would have been nice to have met some of the ancients in more detail. (Word has it that the next few books will revolve around the ancients and the monastery) 

It did feel a little rushed, and it felt like it could have been a novella rather than a full book. 
Oh and I hope we get to meet granny Trixie she was so funny.
