Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
5 I love the Carpathian World Stars

“Every time. With every breath,” she said instantly, reaching back to circle his neck with her arm. “You will always be my choice.”-Emeline


27 books and I just can't get enough. This series never gets old, I never get bored, and I hate every time I get to the end because I know I will have to wait a whole year to get the next book in the series. That or do another of many rereads. I don't know how Christine Feehan does it but the Dark series is
Another awesome read! I’m loving the past few Carpathian books in this series! Christine Feehan has done a great job of upping her game and creating a fresh storyline for a long series! She has also introduced a bunch of ancient Carpathians who I am totally dying to get their stories. I hope they all find their life mates!

My only complaint is the same as the last book I read... that is she has got to stop being so repetitive with her words. Other than that I have loved being back in this world!

This is the story of the ancient Carpathian, Dragomir Koziel, one of the recently discovered ancient monastery males, and Emeline Sanchez, a human psychic currently residing within the Carpathian compound of her friend Blaise and her lifemate Maksim. I was crazy with excitement when it was announced that it was Dragomir who would find his lifemate in this book and be restored to life. Dragomir did not disappoint. He was old-world charming, fiercely protective, and completely devoted to the one h ...more

Dark Legacy ranks right up there as being one of my all time favorites! Christine Feehan exploded with a powerful gripping storyline.
Emeline takes center stage as she emerges on the scene. Her tale is nightmarish, woven with dangers and mystery.
Dragomir was badass from the start! He's the kind of blood sucker you want fighting off demon zombies, rogue vampires and the gentleman walking by your side. And dragons...who doesn't love reading about those? Yeah this was damn sure one of Christine F

Dark Legacy is a powerfully provoking read that takes us to the western coast, of a powerful vampire, an innocent woman in trouble and a Carpathian who has found his lifemate after centuries of searching....

Dark Legacy is such a wonderful read and it definitely lived up to my expectations and there were so many fun elements about this installment. This series might be so long, but it's going so strong and this is a true testament to Feehan'
Dark Legacy brings stunning world building, explosive chemistry and a new paranormal romance from the queen of paranormal romance’s, Christine Feehan.

Emeline Sanchez is caught up in circumstances beyond her control and hiding it from even her closest friends. She is being tortured by an evil vampire by corrupted blood.

An ancient Carpathian, Dragomir comes to her rescue but if Emeline accepts Dragomir she will be rescuing him in return.

This is one of the first paranormal romance series I’ve ever
Thrilled! I was thrilled with this book in the series. I have stated numerous times that I don't do erotica but I still read Christine Feehan, because she has good plots. I need a plot. I absolutely loved this book , because it was a story line that made me feel, that had me rooting and shouting for "Emmy" and some twists, some surprises, and is leaving me in anticipation of where she is taking this series, who is the next book about? This book united some of the original in thought and action, ...more

Now, it’s his voice that haunts her...that calls to her in the dark...that never lets her rest. And while the children that she helped to free from his clutches struggle to heal, watched over by

Danger, intrigue and destined love….

This outing was a wild whirlwind of passion, destiny, hard-won battles and… surprises. I would expect by the twenty-seventh book in any series that surprises would be in short supply. Luckily, that wasn’t the case as Emeline and Dragomir’s story proved to be a unique treat while providing all the elements that make this Dark series one of my favourites.

I felt so much for Emeline’s character. She had never had people of her own yet suddenly she found herself in

I'm loving that the author is continuing to follow the arc that involves the Ancients that were encouraged to leave their monestry and take a chance on finding lifemates in the modern world. Plus with all the recent upheaval in California there are several Carpathians in and around the home that Tariq has made. It's getting pretty crowded as recently the Carpathians have been helping to rescue several victims of Vampires and one of them is Emeline. Emeline knows how tough life on the streets can ...more

Here we go again...........I've skipped a few books in the Carpathian series. They were getting too silly even for me and that's sayin' something. I should just stick a fork in this series because it's done. I know I should move on but I keep coming back for more. I always have hope that CF will return to the roots of the series and come out with a great Carpathian romance.

I did not like that Emeline had been raped and impregnated by Vadim. C'mon Christine Feehan you didn't have to go there to

An easy 5 star read.
I savored this book through my train journey from Kerala to Delhi. So many amazing places and scenery.
Almost a match made in heaven.

I already knew the heroine was violated by a vampire from a previous book so I was totally anticipating a dark chapter about it. But thankfully it was just heroine retelling her ordeal to hero.

The vampires has become more vicious and cunning and a group of bewildered carpathian ancients are trying to outsmart them and at the same time hunting a

Dark Legacy is a continuation of the story of the Ancients that began at the end of Dark Promise, where we saw the ancients being pointed in the direction needed to find their life mates.
The more I read of the Ancients the more I am liking this new direction. I definitely recommend this story as one to read.

Centuries ago and group of men were sent out by their Prince to protect their people. These men had honor, integrity, and in most cases sheer bullheadedness to keep them from sucumbering to t

Dark Legacy is actually book 31 of the Dark Series and continues where we left off from Dark Carousel with Emeline sacrificing herself to the big bad dark Drag for a relationship she isn't so thrilled to be in despite being a victim puts herself back in that place for her own good and the good of the others.

We continue the new mix up that the bad guys aren't really bad guys anymore and that the real bad guys are evil or assumed to be evil must be conquered through love which is brought in by the

The Story:

I’m short on time so this is stupid short but I liked the book. I was so into it I didn’t even notice it was about to end. Can’t wait for the next installment

Writing: Awesome.
Forward Motion: Very Good. This can sometimes be a challenge with Ms Feehan but I didn’t notice it
4 stars

This was a very good story and addition to the series. I liked both Emeline & Dragomir very much and was happy with their story.

Emeline is a woman with psychic abilities, one of which is prophetic dreams. She grew up and is BFFs with Blaze (the heroine from book # 23.5, Dark Crime). Emeline was captured by some vampires while she and Blaze were trying to save some young children. Emeline went through hell and came out of it with issues but she felt so tainted that she refused to let anyon

Dragomir is always looking out for his woman, "he paused at the door and turned back to her. “Before you go outside, sívamet, you might want to add undergarments. Personally, I like you without panties and a bra, but I’m not so certain you will be as thrilled when someone else notices.” I liked this book, it was an okay read, other books in the series were a bit more enjoyable than this one. I'm not completely sure why I wasn't in love with the book, all I know is that it was an okay read. ...more

While the Carpathians and children she saved are trying to help her, she thinks she has to leave to keep everyone safe from the evil vampire who's in her head, talking to her. That is until she meets one Carpathian male sets her heart on fire for him. As she tries to heal from her harrowing ordeal, there's only one per ...more

Dark Legacy by Christine Feehan is the 31st book in her Dark (Carpathian) series. In Dark Legacy, so much happens to keep us glued to our seats, and unable to put the book down. The exciting storyline plots; the return of the evil Malinovs; a strong wonderful heroine and a hero who not only worshipped his lifemate, but treated her like a queen from the start; not like the abusive male heroes we had to endure in many of the later Dark books. I loved Dark Legacy.

This book was well worth the wait. To be able to see Emeline get her happy ever after is great. This was a great read and it moved along nicely. I was also able to see where some next stories may come from. I still can't wait to see Gary's story. Makes me wonder when he states that his lifemate is is an baby? Who could it be.

The story is about Emeline who battled the master vampire to save the children and now she is in the safety of the compound he still haunts her in her dreams. There is also another man there and she feels the need to change the dream to make sure he stays safe so when she meets Dragomir she realizes she knows him from her dreams.

“I can't believe I have you here with me," she whispered and turned her face into his throat, nuzzling him. Inhaling. Tasting his skin with her tongue. "My life was pain and terror. You took away his voice. You gave me hope that my daughter would survive and others wouldn't shun her. I was terrified and alone, and you changed all that. You brought beauty and hope back into my life. Thank you for that, Dragomire. I swear I will spend every minute making you happy."
