We like those people and we love the stories. There are several writers with your kind of taste in sex. I am hetero and I read hetero stuff. Other people are gay they like gay stuff. And the list goes on. You can find out by reading what Characters are mentioned in a description of a book. It is just that easy.If it is not to your taste look for something else. That is what I do, and many other people too. If she decides to make a book like what u r looking for, it will be known. I will skip that.(less)

Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
As much as I love this series, this book was a bit slow for me. I like both Ferro and Elisabeta, but they aren't my favorites. I loved seeing some of the older couples. I also really loved all the Josef time. I really want his book soon. I also loved most of my Gary time. I didn't like that CF had him thinking of (view spoiler) That is so out of Gary's character and it made him look like a dick. I am also really starting to disli ...more

Dark Song is the 30th full-length novel in the Carpathian series and it is exquisitely written, lyrical, and suspenseful. Ferro and Elizabeta are perfect examples of true lifemates. Their bonding is so much more authentic because they were both born Carpathian; therefore the story wasn’t bogged down with conversion angst or baggage that human lifemates sometimes bring into the relationship.

These two simply radiated love and chemistry that felt organic and real. Poor Ferro, one of the monastery

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Christine Feehan is a master at writing Paranormal Romances. She knows how to weave a story and how to get the reader engaged in what she is writing. Dark Song was an intriguing story about how love and trust can overcome the darkest pasts anyone could imagine.

Elisabeta and Ferro’s story was just that. He’s a vampire hunter that lived centuries. She was a captive of a vampire for centuries. Through time, hunters lose their emotions until they find their lifemate and Ferro was no different. Until

When one of these books features a song or poetry, you know it’s going to be a romantic one. And Dark Song doesn’t disappoint. I’ve been reading these books for 21 years and these characters have become almost real. This is the magic Christine Feehan weaves for her readers. This book harkens back to the early books where the focus was on the romance between the two main characters.
I was never convinced Elisabeta was dead when we first learned about her way back in her brother, Traian’s book. And

My Review of DARK SONG:

I enjoyed reading DARK SONG. A beautiful, and well written romance. I loved the poetry at the beginning of the book. Simply beautiful. Ferro was a supportive male, that followed Elisabeta's lead while she found her core of inner strength to face the world after being held captive for centuries by Sergey Malinov. Ferro has Elisabeta's back, and became whatever she needed. She endured centuries of torture, and abuse, but with the support of her lifemate was literall

If you've been reading this series then you already know Elisabeta. She's the heroine of this book and her story is a very sad one. She was captured by a vampire who kept her hostage for a very long time and once she was rescued and safe, her lifemate found her. Now she's healing, mentally and physically so she can get to know her lifemate.

Ferro is a Carpathian warrior and knew as soon as he heard Elisabeta's voice that she was his lifemate. She's been in captivity for so long that she's afraid

I have a love/hate relationship with Christine Feehan's heroes. Thankfully, this alpha hero falls into my love category. Picking up from the previous story, Feehan writes a soulmate romance between an self admitted caveman like hero and a fragile heroine who had been emotionally and physically abused most of her her life. A sturdy plotted storytelling blends perfectly with the exploratory romance. Well timed comedic dialogue and very slow burning sexual awareness from the heroine keeps the reade ...more

Elisabeta has been missing for centuries and now that she's been rescued she still has a fight ahead. The vampire who took her wants her back at any cost. There's tension in the compound where she's healing that has caused Carpathians to choose sides. And the oldest of the ancient immortal warriors from the monastery claims to be her lifemate.

This book is one of the most romantic paranormal romance novels I've ever read. Feehan continues with her Dark Series and the idea of lifemates with Ferro

Elisabeta’s story… finally!

Oh, I’ve waited for this story for a long, long time. This is the thirtieth book in the series – I know, how time flies, right? – yet it was (is) one of the best reads so far…

If you’re a fan, then Ferro and Elisabeta, and their families, are no strangers. They are Carpathians, slayers of vampires. They were warriors, defenders and, above all, lovers… Elisabeta’s story was heart wrenching. Crazy, melt your heart, wonder ‘how did she survive’ kind of stuff. Tormented for

Carpathian, Vampires, romance and love. As with most readers of this series I was not impressed with Ferro in previous meetings. Jerk covers it. In Dark Song, his and Elisabetta story, he is king. OK not title of King, but he becomes a king in my eyes. He sees his faults and does everything and anything to help Elisabetta come into her own. He also feels a threat to Elisabetta from Gary and Tariq!! Say what??? I love the mystery, the support, new friends and old. This was a winner for me.

An absolutely amazing read. Christine Feehan has outdone herself. I loved Ferro and Elisabeta. Mix in the old favourites and it was pure joy. Ferro was an amazing lifemate to Elisabeta. Held captive for centuries and scared senseless, Elisabeta had a spine of steel. Ferro was there for her every step of the way. Incredibly romantic book.
Just when I thought, I had things figured out, Christine threw a curve ball. I didn't see that coming and I am beyond excited for the next books in the series.

It's been a while since I last picked up this series. I didn't realize that there are now 30 books. It's been that long.

The book's heroine has been in captivity for centuries, tortured and abused. He's an ancient Carpathian hunter. The dynamics of the entire storyline revolve around on her fragility and budding self-discovery and how he, as her lifemate, helps her through all her issues; all while fighting the bad guys. It's, honestly, nothing new. But I totally get why others loved it as there

Held captive, tormented and tortured for centuries by a master vampire, Elisabeta Trigovise has been rescued and rests safely in the healing soil of the Carpathian compound. She is awaken by the song of her lifemate, Ferro Arany, and though she doesn't want to rise, she knows she cannot refuse. Ferro gently calls to Elisabeta to rise. She doesn't know the basics, such as cleansing herself or dressing herself. She doesn't know how to make a decision because of her captivity. Elisabeta knows rules ...more

Content warning: The heroine has survived prolonged abuse (not sexual) and torture, including suicide attempts. This book contains a fair bit of violence, but I mean, it's a vampire book, so that comes with the territory. I can't think of any other content warnings.
I've not previously read any of Christine Feehan's work, but I've been hearing about her for years, and when I saw her latest novel was on NetGalley I thought I'd give it a try. This is apparently book number 34 in her Carpathian seri

Those of you familiar with Christine Feehan will know that she is hailed as the "Queen of Paranormal Romance." Her Dark Carpathian books are just one of the many series that she continuously adds to. If you haven't heard of her before, these books are full of men with scars (physical and emotional) from long centuries of fighting vampires, as well as battling the temptation to become one of the undead themselves. The women are from a variety of backgrounds, some human, some Carpathian, but all h ...more

Dark Song

Ferro and Elisabeta’s story is another example of Ms. Feehan’s strength in telling an elegantly emotional story. Her telling of how lifemates learn to find ways to make each other complete is told with two of her more challenging hero and heroines.

Elisabeta, a prisoner for centuries, unable to do the simplest things without the permission of her truly evil captor, Sergei, has been rescued. Now in the safety of the Carpathian compound she struggles to cope with her new life. Add to that

Anyone who knows me knows that it doesn't take me 2 weeks to finish a book. This book bored me to tears and I only finished it because I couldn't return it for a refund on Amazon and I spent $20 on it.

I'm glad Elisabeta became stronger throughout the story. Ferro was a supportive partner. Those are probably the only positive things I have to say about Dark Song. The book is overloaded with detail and I found myself skipping pages to get to something more interesting. The romance was slow as well

3.5 stars.

I don't really know how I feel about this installment in the series. I wasn't overly impressed with Ferro or Elisabeta if I am being honest.

I did enjoy seeing old characters from the very beginning of the series and I like that Josef is getting some more story time. I hope that means he will be in more books until he gets his own.

While I do enjoy the series, I hope it will be wrapping up soon.

HARDBACK COVER EDITION!! Book is much better then the audible addition!

It seems the Narrator Jim Frangione has Incorrectly changed the pronunciation of two of the characters in Dark Song. "Genevieve" we first meet in "Dark Carousel" and "Joie" lifemate to Traian Trigovise "Dark Descent". At First I didn't know who he was talking about. I keep thinking who are these characters? Soon it hit me he changed the way there names are pronounced. Why??? Is this a technical error. He got Genevieve's name

Elisabeta’s story makes my heart weep!
Elisabeta should have been a proud Carpathian woman, sharing her gift with the Carpathian people and being a woman proud of her heritage and her healing gifts.
Instead, Elisabeta was betrayed as a young woman, and held for centuries by an evil Vampire. Starved, tortured, forced to watch as her captor maimed and killed people in front of her in a continuous attempt to break her! No one knew she was alive, and only her captor could see her. At times, she prayed

I loved this latest installation to the Dark Series, Elisabeta and Ferro were a fantastic couple. I enjoyed seeing some of our older characters come back and Josef was awesome. I guess where the book fell flat was the constant repetition of the same material. Still it was a solid addition to the series.

Luckily, the Dark series continues to grow as more couples are added to progress the story line even further... and I think this may yet be one of the most romantic couples that Christine Feehan has given us. Ferro and Elisabeta's relationship is beautifully written as it develops. The dialogue between the two of them is so intimate and personal. I genuinely loved getting to know these two better and watching them find their way to each other completely. ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this long awaited book. CF set the bar high in this installment of the "Dark Series" that tells the story of a long lost, terribly abused heroine who had no sense of who she truly was and just how powerful her gifts are, and an old-world, fearsome warrior who had long given up hope on ever finding his other half this this lifetime. I enjoyed how supportive and protective the hero (Ferro) was of his very fragile lifemate (Elisabeta). He truly was the wind beneath her wings, p ...more

It’s taken me forever to write this review because Elisabeta and Ferro’s story is so amazing and the direction the Dark/ Carpathian Series is taking is so addicting I could write pages. So I believed I’ve narrowed it down and if you hadn’t realized it yet, I highly recommend this series and Dark Song! I Have been awaiting these two and their story since Dark Legacy. Wondering how they would navigate their journey after all they faced, and the dangers still coming for them, tormenting her... how ...more
