Preview — Dark Melody by Christine Feehan
Dark Melody (Dark Saga #12)
Even Corinne, damsel in distress, is one of the better heroines - her husband has been murdered, leaving her six months pregnant; her heart is weak and the baby will kill her (even witho ...more
Maybe this book deserves 2 stars rather than one but I am just so sick of Feehan's Carpathians series. The books are just unforgivably similar. I keep reading them because I like the setup and every once in a while am in the mood to read something incredibly stupid. With Feehan you pre ...more
In this installment of the Carpathian series, Feehan takes a turn from the formula. Instead of running, fighting and chasing vampires while searching for lifemates, we settle down some. Dayan (a favorite yummy treat ) finds his lifemate in Corrine but immediately realizes there is a problem. She has a defective heart and will not live long. Now anyone reading this series might think, "what's the problem? The Carpathians can heal her". Well, not so fast - she is also pregnant and Dayan can ...more
The repetitive imagery and metaphors overpowered what could have been a tight and tense plot - bulking out the book perhaps but were frustrating to read, which was a shame since the action scenes were mostly well writ ...more
For many reasons.
So, if you remember, everyone in the band (Dark Challenge, Dark Fire) has a lifemate except for Dayan. At the end of Dark Fire, he went on the run with the human, Cullen Tucker, evading the human society of vampire hunters.
(see my reviews for these and others here)
He meets Corinne, a songwriter. The complication? Corinne has a heart condition, she doesn't have much time to live. On top of that, she's pregnant with her husba ...more
Dayan is not really an interesting male lead, Corrine isn't the best female lead (though interesting with her weakened heart and she is the first to have been with someone other than her lifemate) and Lisa was just so so annoying and selfish and... to be honest, if the society ...more
It wasn't quite as satisfying as I thought it would be, but I have a feeling that is because it was a different narrator and I hated the way Gregori and some of the other men were voiced. It is hard to listen to a series when they keep switching narrators. Sometimes it's a good thi ...more
This is the story of Dayan and Corinne Wentworth. Dayan is a lead guitarist in The Dark Troubadours. His story begins with him playing in a bar despite the danger of being hunted by a group of human fanatics. He is accompanied by Cullen Tucker who was introduced in Dark Fire. He had warned Darius and Tempest of the human fanatics and is now on top of the vampire hunter death list, along with The Dark Troubadours. Both are in a bar because Dayan had a strong compulsion to be there.
In the 12th installment in Feehan's paranormal Dark series (Dark Symphony, etc.), she again creates a richly evocative fantasy world in which immortal Carpathian males search for their "lifemates" and battle soulless vampires. When young telepathic widow Corinne Wentworth walks into the bar where Carpathian Dayan, of the legendary band the Dark Troubadours, is playing, he immediately recognizes her as his lifemate ("He heard the soft murmur of her voice, and at once his w
If I have to read the word "sheath" or "velvet" one more time I will become a homicidal berserker.
I'm taking a break from this series, which I think has incredible potential in terms of world building and characters, but gets lost in the vapid prose. Perhaps a break will improve my opinion.
I've read many books of this series and have been disappointed with only two. This one was one of them. This is not to say that there are not issues with the others too, but in the end they were good reads.
I had ...more
This is a different type of story. The danger isn’t so much in bad vampires and human vampire hunters, though they are in here. But the main crisi ...more
Christine Feehan was the author that got me into paranormal romance, and actually back into reading again. I read the first few of the Dark series one after another, but I have been away from them for a while. So, Dark Melody was a bit of a change for me. I like Feehan's books...the Ghostwalkers are one of my favorite series, but I found that the Dark series was drifting a bit. This one, I found different. There is no sex until the last pages of the book, but it really isn't ne ...more
I've realized after what 12 books that every single woman is always tired, only having any kind of energy for a few hours a day. I realize that they are fictional but these women are a little unusual, okay a lot unusual. Have they never stayed awake for 24 hours? Most of these women are in their 20s so I don't understand why they are all so tired. In this book of course the heroine is ...more
In earlier books, Dayan's character is interesting, but plays a supporting role. In Dark melody, you learn that he is an amazing talent capable of solo performance. He remains in contact with Darius and values the family relat ...more
Let me just begin by saying thank goodness for this book! I am totally back on the Carpathian bandwagon now. Dark Melody was so much better than Dark Descent (book 11 in the series).
Dark Melody is the story of Dayan, lead guitarist for the Dark Troubadours. We first met the band back in Dark Challenge (book 5 of the series), and by book 6, Julian had Desari, Darius had Tempest, and Barack had Syndil - everyone had a lifemate exc ...more
Dark Melody features Dayan, a dark and handsome Carpathian poet, songwriter and musician with his family band the Dark Troubadours (I just love the stories featuring this band!! Desari, Syndil, Barack…and the rest of family and leopards….)He is close to turning and after seeing to the safety of his family decides to leave them and to perhaps find his own true lifemate.
Corinne Wentworth, whose husband has been murdered, is 6 months pregnant with his baby and due to her weak heart has very little ...more
La forma en que se encontraron cuando el tocaba con su banda.. fue interesante..aunque ella ya amaba a la banda de el.. lo mas probable es que sintiendo en alguna parte de su ser que el era su compañero aunque ella ni siquiera lo supiera.. ...more
