Dark Dream (Dark #7)
She's known him since she was fifteen. Every night, he is with her: his face, his voice. Tonight, Sara Marten will meet the man who is both angel and demon, salvation and temptation: Falcon-the Carpathian, the banished hero. Tonight, Sara will meet the dark-eyed destroyer destined to be her mate.
There is actually a balanced relationship here without the H demanding everything without an explanation and a h that is pulling away time and again even though she cannot resist H's body. This is actual...more
OK, some housekeeping first. This is a novella. You can get it in ebook, but if you're like me, you prefer a actual book you can hold. Which leads to a slight problem. You can't just by Dark 7 by itself. There are a couple of ways you can buy it, but my suggestion is as part of Dark Nights. It has 7 and 11, so you get 2 for 1!
I really like this one, possibly because it's short and therefore, flys by....more
Short and fulfilling little addition to the Dark series. I liked it because Sara and Falcon's story marks a turning point in the series with fresh plots and characters. Although it was a novella, I still got the effects of reading an entire book. Sara was on the run from one of the demons of Falcon's race. It stole her whole life in the blink of an eye and would not be...more
Purtroppo non è un granché come romanzo, e me ne rammarico.
Superficiale, noioso (lo schema proposto è sempre lo stesso da circa 5 romanzi)e poco coinvolgente.
I personaggi non sono molto curati, neanche approfonditi e un Antico come Falcon meritava decisamente di essere tratteggiato meglio di come è stato fatto.
Idem per la sua compagna che è stata buttata là, nella storia, come una vittima di una persecuzione assolutamente poco credibile. Un vampiro antico ti da...more
The thing is I have an Android phone and I can only download audio books from the library that are in MP3 format. I was looking for a book to listen to while I worked out and this one was available and in...more
Tornano i carpaziani in questo breve racconto (meno di 200 pagine e una copertina davvero oscena XD anche se il titolo stavolta ha un suo perchè u.u) in cui conosciamo un guerriero ancora più antico del principe Mikhail,Falcon, inviato insieme ad altri coraggiosi volontari dal su...more
Falcon was unlike the other Carpathians , he was a complete gentleman and most importantly he didn't go all caveman on the heroine .... that was like a breeze of fresh air , he wasn't forceful and showed respect to Sara and her wishes , I liked him a lot.
Sara was sweet , smart and strong , she's one of those characters you like instantly.
I liked Falcon and Sara together. Sara has gone through a lot but always had "her dark angel" to help her. Of course, Falcon lived up to her expectations.
I thought it was an interesting...more
But this was refreshing!!! The man was cultured and the woman wasn't a nit wit. Also we finally get all the characters together! Thank god. I was worried cause every story was getting to be the same--
I am man I rule you do as I say
Oh I'm just a poor little woman that can't do anything but fawn over you
I liked that we could skip the "omg what are you" crap--she already knew......more
Another good book in this series. I liked that you get to see several previous couples in this book, and see what they've been up to. Also, you can tell that the author is starting to bring the overall story together and I love that. Although most of the books in this series feel somewhat similar, there is enough difference and variety for me to still enjoy them. The main characters in this story were unique in that the woman, Sara, automatically accepted Falcon. There was no tempor...more
That being said, the way she easily accepted everything about the Carpathian lifestyle was bordering on hilarious.
I like the concept of the Carpathians and I do find myself curious about their difficulty in conceiving female Carpathians so I will probably keep reading more.
If you like writing that involves a lot of bodice-rippi...more
This story was pretty descent. I like the fact the it was not typical in the sense that different powers were displayed in this story. The great thing about a short story is that it forces you to get right down to the freakin point. The women of the story did not have much time to be annoying and super independent to the point of being obnoxious and the male had no time to be so over bearing and ubber protective that he actually comes off as being an overbearing, domineering a**hole. I would de...more
After being away from his beloved home in the Carpathian Mountains, Falcon feels the darkness growing in his soul and has decided to return home to face his death.
Sara, having witnessed her entire family being killed by an evil vampire, has been on t...more
One of the better Carpathian stories and one I could certainly listen to over and over again. The characters were compelling and the idea of Falcon writing to his life mate a thousand years before was born, was one that drew me in.
Finally, with this and the last book, I've realized why I like this series. Here's a heroine that sees this man who would end up dying if they couldn't make a go of it and she's willing to take a chance with him. She doesn't run from him or blame him for everything bad that happens or that she perceives is happening. I'm excited now to be working through the series.
Way better than the usual Carpathians. No doormat heroine, no overbearing male. Wow, I am almost awed :). Pity it's short, and way too expensive for a novella at 6$… I don't know why it's not labeled correctly on GR. Usually novellas and ss are not numbered as full books...
NO Character development...
I think I have read better fan-fiction from teens! If this...more
