24+ Carpathians that found their lifemates.
Our only complaint? Skyler and Dimitri. We got teased. We got a promised a lot. We had expectations. And yes..... it all delivered!!!!


Every Carpathian male has one chance at happiness. One ray of sunshine in a dark and colorless existence. Dimitri met his when she was 8 years old and he had a couple of centuries on her. She was broken and ab...more

Fans of Christine Feehan’s Dark series have been waiting a decade or so for this book. For some, there is no way anything she were to write would satisfy after a build like this. Others will be so glad to get the story, that it will be an automatic 5 star read. I’ll be honest, I went into this one with my expectations at an all-time low. The past few books have been so disappointing that I was ready to quit the series. Until I found out that Skyler and Dmitiri were finally on the horizon. I’m pl...more
I wish I was writing about how awesome this long awaited book was but the days of me truly enjoying Feehan's books seem to be gone. There were some decent parts to the story but unfortunately the annoying parts happened just as much.

First to the good stuff: the fight scenes and the set up to rescue Dmitri kept me interested and wondering what would happen. Also it was great seeing some Carpathians we haven't seen in a long time (Gabriel and Lucien in particular). I think the wolf pack thing is c...more
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Christine Feehan's Dark Wolf has been nearly 12 long years in the making and its finally here.

Fans have been waiting anxiously for Sklyer to grow up and become old enough to have her own novel, while they follow the ever growing world of the Carpathians, Christine Feehan has been working diligently to create bigger plots and to bring us to stories of epic proportions.

It wasn't horrible. It wasn't great. All of the interesting stuff about Skyler and Dimitri was nowhere to be found in this book. It was pretty boring, and the intensity of their relationship was gone.

I think CF waited too long to write this book.

I'll write a longer review later. There was one thing that I found extremely hard to believe. The Dimitri from earlier books would have FREAKED OUT if he knew his lifemate was about to enter a Lycan army camp to save him. He was intense, racked by guilt,...more
I loved that I finally got to see Dmitri and Skyler together..It was a terribly long gruelling wait; but in the end Christine Feehan pulled off an awesome book for them! I will write up a review when I have some more time; but an absolute lovely book, and I just adore this couple. I didn't want it to end!!!

F I N A L L Y!!! Skyler and Dimitri's book! After skipping the last two Carpathian books (Dark Predator was not working for me, so I skipped Dark Storm...maybe I will try again before I read these), I hope this trilogy restores my faith in Ms. Feehan. We have been waiting for Skyler's story for so long, she should be about 30 now! Too bad I have to wait another year to read it!
I have been looking forward to Skyler’s book since we first discovered Dimitri was her lifemate. That was a long time ago, and I’m an inpatient person! Needless to say when I heard Skylers book was coming out I rushed to preorder and started reading the moment it popped up on my Kindle. All I can say is … “Wow! What a disappointment!”

I must first be sure to state that I love the Carpathian people, their history, the plots of the stories. All of it is good. I like the characters too and feel an e...more

FUCK YEAH!!! Dimitri and Skyler's story has been a long time coming and I can't wait. I'll be back in a year.

I love my audiobooks but have come to realize that they can be a gift or curse. There have been times when a story wasn't all to my liking, but the storyteller did such a good job that it made up for that. I had the opposite reaction with this book. I liked the story but had a hard time liking the voice and demeanor Skyler. Her lines were always delivered in a...more
Waiting my turn to check this book out from the library. No way am I paying the asking price. Been let down far too often with Feehan's Dark series.

I've been waiting for this book for a very long time and I am happy to say it didn't disappoint. I absolutely love Skyler and Dimitri <3
I also like that Christina Feehan seems to be evolving her writing style. She is adding more humour to her books and I find it really enjoyable.

This smoking hot paranormal romance had all the aspects of the Carpathian novels we have grown to love. The danger and intrigue at times left me breathless, but that was tempered well with the love and friendship loaded on the pages. This story also had a fun group of friends that I beli...more

"Good Grief"

That was exactly what trolled through my mind upon finishing this book. And, in fact, that's what this book did: it trolled along.

I, like many Christine Feehan fans, have waiting for this book forEVER. In fact, I persevered through some of the preceding Dark books just so I wouldn't miss any nuances of the storyline when Feehan finally got around to writing it - despite many of the more recent ones being pretty damn lackluster IMO. Keeping in mind that those more recent processions w...more

I have been waiting for Skyler and Dimitri's novel since i saw them in dark possession and i could almost feel the attraction between them. I can't imagine a Carpathian having to wait so long for his mate.. hope Dimitri isn't too deranged.

3.75 stars.

Well, I was totally caught up in this book and turned the page not realizing it was the last one! That’s a good thing and a bad thing. Good because I was so lost within the story, I wasn’t paying attention to the pages. Bad, well, because it just ended! I wouldn’t even say it ended as a cliffhanger. Usually, even with cliffy endings, there’s some sort of resolution within the subplots, but not with DARK WOLF. I was left stranded. Although this ending ensures I’ll continue reading, I...more
Lover of Romance
Skyler is determined to save the life of her lifemate. When suddenly one day, with their strong connection, she senses incredible pain from him, and then senses nothing. Then she learns that he has been kidnapped by the lycans, but the leaders of the Carpathians refuse to tell her anything, so she decides to take matters in her own hands. If no one will save him, then she certainly will. With the aid of her two closest friends Josef and Paul, who will do everything they can to save his life. Eve...more
I do not even know how to start this review so I am just going with my thoughts are reactions. Dark Wolf is one of the most intricate, multi-layered, beautifully written story lines…not just in the entire Dark series, but in all of literature. I have been reading Christine Feehan’s work for over 11 years, and it is novels like Dark Wolf that keep me coming back for more. If you want to know why this author has one of the longest, and most successful running series in Fiction–Dark Wolf is a prime...more
Ok...First of all, let me say for the record that I love, love, love Christine Feehan's writing, and that this was generally a well written book. The plot was fast-placed, the character's were well developed and the story arc was intriguing. In particular, I enjoy the notion that there is one REAL love for each of us. That "Agape Love." The notion that no matter how disconnected and out of place we may feel, there is that one special someone who will love us unconditionally, warts and all, but w...more
This is my first Christine Feehan read and although I am kicking myself for not reading the series in order, I was not disappointed in the book. I did feel a little lost when there were so many other characters introduced and not knowing their histories made it difficult to connect with them in the story. I would recommend reading the series in order.

The Carpathians and Lycans are on the verge of war. Mikhail, the Carpathian prince and the Lycan council members are working on an alliance but the...more

I've waited so long for Dimitri and Skylar's book and was not disappointed.

I loved how the author mentioned their connection over the years. That Dimitri has always been there for her and that he's always waited no matter the cost to him.

The first half of the story I did find slow and just wanted to get up to Skylar rescuing Dimitri.

Skylar is a courageous young woman who will go to any length to make sure her life mate lives. She shows how much they are suited with her fighting spirit even thoug...more

Dark Wolf continues after Dark Lycan, with the lifemate of Dimitri Tirunul hunting to find him before it’s too late. Skyler Daratraznoff is only nineteen and considered way young to her ancient Carpathian family, but she’s determined to find the man who is her whole world.

The world of the Carpathians and Lycans is a rich world that has built and expanded over the years and many books in this series, I definitely recommend reading this one after Dark Lycan but I do think it could be read without...more
Secretly Reading
Originally reviewed for The Book Vixen

In a Nutshell: I had to read Skyler and Dimitri’s story and it was fine but this book is very repetitive action plot from the previous 24 books and the romance was adequate but not spectacular. After 25 books I’m breaking up with this series, and I hope to mean it.

Why I Read this Book: Like most series’ readers, I’ve eagerly awaited Skyler and Dimitri’s book.

What I Liked: Dimitri and Skyler already know and love each other which is a different romantic set u...more
Laurie: Almost Faemous
Wow 25 books in a series, this has to be a record. First a series that lasted that long, yes I know there are a few others with 25 books but none that I have stuck with through 25 books. It almost embarrasses me to admit this is a guilty pleasure of mine, it is just so cheesy most of the time...but I still love most of the books and have re-read them a number of times...well some of them anyway.

This one was long anticipated finally Skyler and Dimitri's story. You know they became lifemates I thi...more
3.75 stars: I did a reread a few weeks ago and you can find my 'update' review at the bottom:

Some background about the series: All Carpathian males, must find their lifemates before they turn vampire or greet the dawn. Without a lifemate, the males no longer see in color, feel pain or experience emotions. A lifemate is the light to their dark. She is the keeper of his heart and the keeper of his soul.

DARK WOLF is one of the most anticipated storylines in Christine Feehan’s Dark Carpathian parano...more

Christine Feehan has written one of her best works yet!!!. BRAVO CF!! I have been waiting for Skyler's story since 2002, 12 years when she was introduced in Dark Legend. We meet her Lifemate Dimitri in Dark Celebration written in 2006, 8 years ago. For long term Fans of Ms. Feehan Dark Series, Skyler and Dimitri's stories has been much anticipated. All I am going to say is I was NOT DISAPPOINTED!! WELL DONE CHRISTINE FEEHAN WELL DONE!!!

I waited a REALLY long time for this book. My interest slowly faded into this series but I have hung on because I NEEDED Skylar & Dimitris book. I knew theirs would be very emotional and strong. Skylar has grown so much from the scared little girl she was first introduced has, she has become exactly the kind of lifemate Dimitri needs, because she was already the one he wanted. She braves things most would not just to save the man she has not yet been bound to. Why? Because although she does...more
This is my all time favourite series, and although it's a long one, Christine Feehan never disappoints. The book was once again the highest of standards, taking us readers into the magical world of the Carpathians. With each book I read it's like visiting with old friends.

We first met Skyler as a child in Gabriel and Francesa story and have watched her grow into the strong and very gifted young women she has become, wow who knew ? Dimitri a centuries old hunter has wowed me with the support, lo...more
