i've read feehan's "Dark" novels before, and i remember clearly why i stopped reading them. she used the same phrases repetitively, the patterns of the novels all followed generally the same track (as with most successful romance writers), and some of the sex scenes were almost complete replicas of others. i became bored and found myself wishing i was her editor, to push her to be a better writer. with that said, i picked up this book at the grocery store in desperation, because i can't go a day without something to read and the book store and library were closed. with my already formed opinion of feehan, i was not disappointed, nor was i happily surprised. she still uses repetitive phrasing and words, and the sex scenes are similar. the only thing that changes in these books is the characters, their stories, and the road blocks they face in order to come together. however, i enjoy the male characters she has created in the Carpathians, and so will probably ignore the irritants of her writing and read more when the moods strike.
