Book Review 📖

Dark Sentinel (A Carpathian Novel) by Christine Feehan 

Back Cover …….

After the devastating loss of her entire family, Lorraine Peters heads to the woods searching for peace of mind and anything to quell the anger in her soul. Instead, she stumbles upon a scene of horrific violence, as one man lies helpless in the face of three attackers.  

Andor Katona’s existence has been a harsh one, living for centuries as a monk in the Carpathian Mountains. Unable to find his lifemate, he almost welcomes his release from a colorless and unfeeling world at the hands of the vampire hunters who have mistaken him for their prey. That is, until a whirling ball of fury bursts onto the scene, determined to save him.  

In one glimpse, in one breath, Andor recognizes Lorraine as his lifemate, but it will take more than their telepathic connection to convince her of their immortal bond. Lorraine is a lethal combination of cunning and courage. So much so that she captures the attention of a master vampire, one who has already lost what was once irreplaceable to him. One who will strike with deadly precision at Andor and his ancient Carpathian comrades in a war to end all wars. . . 


My Review….. 

Andor has been in a few of the last books, he’s an ancient from the monastery. He was sent by three women to meet his lifemate (he has no idea when, where or who) but she’s out there, and it gives Andor hope. But before he can meet her, Andor is in a fight for his life, chasing and fighting vampires have him carrying mortal injuries, and now to make things worse he’s being tortured by human “vampire” hunters, they have mistaken him for a vampire, and they mean to kill him…..

Lorraine is trying to meditate when her thoughts are rudely interrupted by a few people having murderous thoughts and another thinking it was time to end his life !!! It’s enough to make a sane woman crazy !!! So she takes up the nearest thing and heads off to confront the murderers and possibly save the injured man. 

Most of the book is taken up with Andor and Lorraine trying to get back to Tariq’s compound. We catch up with quiet a few of the ancients from the monastery, they along with the help of Gary (a newly turned Carpathian with memories of many ancients) rescue a family, whilst still trying to repair the grave injuries that Andor got in the beginning of the book. A few of the other ancients get injuries through the book. 

Lorraine is a martial arts expert, so she can really handle herself, and it was funny reading where she came and “rescued” Andor 😉

It’s another good addition to this series, but do we REALLY need sooooooo much sex?!?! 
Ok I understand the Carpathian male hasn’t had sex in like FOREVER (or in some cases not at all) but do we really need to cram it all into 340 pages🙄
