“This is my absolute favorite book of all of Christine Feehan's novels. No joke. I loved it so much I bought the book with two different covers. I love it. I heart it. If I could I'd take Jaques and lock him in my closet. Yummers”Annastasia E wrote this review Saturday, August 8, 2009. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“A little bit different twist on the romance genre, which is always interesting. As with all romance novels they are fun reads when you want something quick and entertaining while not necessarily thought provoking. I don't think in any of her series her characters are particularly lovable when compared to characters like Jamie and Clair in the Outlander series or Bella and Edward in Twilight but you don't need that in a romance novel.”Kim S wrote this review Saturday, August 1, 2009.

“A definite improvement on the first installment of the dark series, although it starts strong and it weakens towards the middle. The main characters are much more likeable than those featured in Dark Prince, and the development is more believable. Feehan still suffers from vices such as purple prose and cliché descriptions but this book will still leave you wanting more.”Candy wrote this review Tuesday, July 28, 2009.

“Review: The second installment of the Carpathians series is the story of Jacques, the hero sidekick and brother of our first tormented story, and Shea, an Irish-American doctor on a quest to find an answer to the hemophilia she was born with. While seeking answers in the homeland of her father, she is drawn into a mind violent with rage and pain, and discovers the burial site of Jacques, tortured and staked in such a way that he would not be able to die, only exist for years in constant agony. Their union sets them both on a single path which will take them to centuries of joy, or to the end of their race.
This second book annoyed me a lot less than the first one did in terms of writing style, perhaps because I knew what to expect. There were still lots of silky hair descriptions, and the love scenes always seem to be same old same old after the first one so I tend to skim those until the story picks up again. Still, I really like the concept of the Carpathian race and seeing how they survive the battles they get into, so I'll move along with the series for a bit.
One pet peeve with this particular book: it seems like the typesetter fell asleep during the last 100 pages or so because all of a sudden, extra words were getting tossed into sentences, or words would be transposed...correct words but in the wrong place in the sentence, and it was all of a sudden that this started. The first couple were amusing, but by number 8 or 9, I was annoyed.”
