4 Ghost with the most Stars

Another awesome book for the Dark series. I love Christine Feehan. Dark Series is one of my top five favorite series of all times and it's still going strong. I have read every book in this series some I have loved more than others. I feel Dark Ghost was a good slow burn, low drama read. In Dark Blood and a few others I had a problem with the large amount of spells and the Carpathian language filling the pages and boring the crap out of me, but gladly that was not a

I have read almost the entire Dark Series by Christine Feehan, which is one of my favorite pnr series ever. I always wait in tenterhooks for her latest offering and I was so excited when Dark Ghost, the 28th book in the series finally arrived!!!! Talk about mixed feelings….

After the disappointment with the last two books, I was looking forward to another “golden” story ….Andre’s appearance in the previous books was enough to want me to read more about him.
I have always loved the Carpathian series, and the men make me melt every single time!! I had two complaints with this instalment... One was that it seemed quite slower moving, as well as there was a lot of repetition. The second was the ending was awful! It cut right off and left the Gramma situation unresolved! I felt i like I wanted to see Andre meet Teagan’s Gramma. In my opinion, there could have been a great storyline with meeting Teagan’s family.

Even with my complaints, I still enjoyed th

I hate to say it but this is the third Feehan book in a row that has just utterly disappointed me. Where the hell is the plot? The sex scenes were definitely better this time around but I can't even say that blew my mind. Where was the character development? Yes, she's "quirky" and obnoxiously self conscious. Yes, he has honor and is centuries old. We get it. Who are they BEYOND that? I just didn't feel the connection to the characters and I wanted to! Andre has always been so intriguing to me a ...more

Welcome back to the Carpathian Mountains and what is the twenty eighth story in this series. This book does work as a standalone but it's a series that keeps building and indeed there is a character mentioned whose story will resonate with regular readers.
Andre Boroi no longer feels emotion or sees in colour and is hanging on to life by a thread. Considered to be a ghost his only wish now is to defeat the deadly master vampire Costin Popescu but as the story begins Andre is gravely injured and n

Teagan has to be the most annoying heroine in the entire series! Her inner voice made me want to shoot her or me to end the agony! I liked Andre but he could not save this book from Teagan's relentless wishy washy machinations. I was bored - a lot. And annoyed - a whole lot!
I enjoyed this one. Andre was a total sweetheart and he was really cute with Teagan. Teagan was a little annoying, but she was a good partner to Andre. I would love books about Fane and the other guys in the monastery!

Teagan is a modern day woman from our time period, but she's afraid of everything. She's use to thinking for herself, being independent, maybe irrational at time but that's quirks of her personality. So when she happens upon Andre her world changes. He becomes dictator and she a puppet on his strings, he makes life altering decisions and ultimately raping her humanity. If the continuing trend of the series is going to be of weak minded, pathetic heroines, then I won't be finishing it out. So tha ...more

I Loved Andrea Boroi and Teagan Joanes. Dark Ghost is a great addition to the Dark Series. Which makes me wonder why so many 1 and 2 star review. Maybe it not the story at all but who Teagan Joanes is. I like that Christine realizes all people and religions in her storylines. She has a huge fan base with all kinds of people and it is brave of her to incorporate all races and religion in her storyline. Bravo Christine Feehan!!

I am more than disappointed with this! I don't often abandon a book, especially one written by a favourite top ten author but I was so bored with it and was finding it a chore.......maybe I will go back to it again some time in the future but feel that I can give this a miss as adds nothing to the series, lets hope the next one is better!
2.5 - are they ever leaving that cave - stars?

Seriously, 90% of this took place in a cave where the couple have sex... repeatedly. There's a little bit of drama with a master vampire and some human sexual sadists who are after the heroine (Feehan loves to write sexual sadists into her books), but mostly it's just the two of them in a cave.

The hero and heroine were likeable. I did think it was pretty messed up for the hero to be doing secret blood exchanges with the heroine rather than telling he

Great to read another Carpathian novel. This is one of my first series that I started my Paranormal Romance love with. But I have to say that this one was not one of the most original ones and I tend to miss the old style.

The main characters spend ~85% of the book inside a cave. Andre wasn't all that attractive. Missed why she would have chosen him and the words like

La ultima estrella no se la pongo porque le han faltado secundarios y un poco mas de acción, debo decir. Aun así las estrellas que le pongo están muy bien merecidas debido a la pluma de Feehan que me ha dejado con el corazón acelerado... Es increíble como la autora, desde la primera pagina nos sumerge en este ambiente oscuro, desolado y tétrico donde la amenaza es realmente siniestra y despiadada. Y en medio de todo esto, surge una conexión muy pasional entre dos personas que esperaron siglos pa ...more

This, the 28th book in the Dark Saga series is everything we should expect from Christine Feehan. Normally once you've reached this far in a series it would help to have read at least a couple of the previous books in the series so as to be familiar with the characters and general story line. I don't feel this is the case here. Although it would be helpful, I feel that since the main characters spend almost 80% of the book in a cave, the av

Let me start off that I'm a Christine Feehan fan. I'm always rushing to get my hands on the latest book. However, I was really disappointed this time.

So, what was it that I didn't like about this one? First off, the setting was limiting. Most of the story took place within a cave. There was little interaction with other characters. Those two factors alone wouldn't be enough to turn me against the story.

My biggest disappointment was that the story didn't feel like it ever came to a real conclusi

Dark Ghost… What to say about Dark Ghost? I honestly have no idea. I’ve loved the Dark series for a long time and the books have just been getting better and better. I had high hopes of Dark Ghost but unfortunately it didn’t live up to them.

Now, I’m not saying I didn’t like the book. I did like it, it was enjoyable in itself, I just didn’t like it as much as some of the more recent ones. It was a cereal bar when I wanted chocolate.

I'm very pleased that Ms. Feehan I knew is still here. Thank you for the lovely book, Christine Feehan.

Dark Ghost is such an excellent book. I don't remember ever reading a book like this by Christine Feehan. It was different and simply beautiful story. 90% of the book was just Teagan Joanes and Andre Boroi together and simply getting to know each other. Only 10% of the book involved other characters. But that 90% of the book was absolutely wonderful. Teagan Joanes is adorable and her thoughts

Every time I read a Dark book it feels like I've read it before.... They are so repetitive, I have no idea why I keep reading them.

This was my jump back into hetero world while I mourned the death of my kindle.

This is the 24th installment in this series and yes it was repetitive in it's general theme. Carpathian Vampire killing the Undead and trying to not sub come to being what they are hunting.

Since being gone from this type of genre for a while, this book was lacking in so many areas. She introduced information that dead end and didn't lead anywhere, the heroine was to be strong but can off whiny also even thoug

This is another Carpathian novel. They tend to run together for me after a while. I've read a few, but certainly not all.

The main characters spend ~85% of the book inside a cave. Andre wasn't an over-the-top alpha male, which is good because I'm very tired of the borderline-abusive, controlling, alpha male with a bad temper. He's muscle-y with long dark hair. Not my type, but he seemed okay. "Silk and velvet" was overused as a description for his voice.

I have been a loyal follower of this series... meaning I have read every single one of the Dark books. Dark Ghost really disappointed me. Nothing happened. Nothing. I don't even need to put a spoiler tag on it; that's how inconsequential the information is. Andre found his lifemate and they fought a couple of vampires. That's it. Even the main conflict that was alluded to (meeting her grandmother and trying to merge her new life with her old) never happened. There was a lot, and I mean a lot, of ...more
I devoured the first half of this book. Things slowed at that point; I'll tell you why in a minute. This is my first book in this series and I can totally see myself reading more. I loved the world, the story and Andre.

This book has Carpathians and vampires. Carpathians hunt vampires and are guided by their honor. When they loose that honor and indulge in the evil, they become what they hunt. Resisting the evil for centuries, Andre has given up on the hope of finding his lifemate. The pain that

Andre Boroi has his own code that he lives by but he’s been gravely wounded by a master vampire and his only chance is to disappear into the gray mist of the Carpathians to wait and to hope in this remarkable paranormal romance.

Hunted by those she once trusted, Teagan Joanes comes across an irresistible wounded warrior and the reader is drawn into the story as Teagan surrenders to a passion that she can’t possible understand. As is the way with Carpathian lifemates, the chemistry sizzles, the pa

While this book had the usual beautiful imagery and interesting story I feel, once again, that it could benefit from a culling of about 100 pages. Even though I listened to this book I found myself skipping parts. The repetitiveness is just unbearable for me. Complaining aside I liked Tegan and I like Andre. I think they will have their work cut out getting to know each other better and finding balance in their relationship but they a

Fantasma oscuro es sin duda una pieza perfecta para las amantes del género paranormal. Peligro, compañeros eternos y lo que eso supone (muchos dirían que es instan love pero sabemos que en este género hay mucho más que eso) Una conquista de un corazón, y el descubrimiento y despertar a un mundo único, mágico, peligroso, oscuro y apasionante.

Christine Feehan no ha variado en ese sentido con su escritura, para mi sigue siendo deliciosa aunque a veces, de manera personal me resulte un poco cargante

Finally a dark book like the older ones Teagan was downright hilarious sometimes , I love a heroine that could make me laugh and I also liked the way she handled things. Andre was very likable but I don't know something was missing like that extra charming thing that makes a dark book hero special but overall I liked the couple in this book.

Some of the plot points were a little uh for me like Teagan's psycho friend .. it was a little too unbelievable and comical in its evil form but honestly I
