Dark Celebration

Carpathians "Dark" Series - Book17

By Christine Feehan

Berkley Hardcover - August 2006

Vampire (Carpathians) Romance

Carpathians from far and wide, some with their lifemates, others still living in a world without color, without emotions. They are all converging to their homeland. Some have not returned since they left centuries before. These are ancients who had remained hidden. Others have just been gone for a few years. They are all coming to the Carpathian Mountains for Christmas.

There is an evil stalking the Carpathians. They work together, protecting the young and the women. There are new Carpathians, and others who are guests. They are part of the Carpathian world, support them, help them, and are under their protection, but not Carpathian.

These are friends we have met through the previous stories, and I am so glad that Christine Feehan decided to take a step back and write a story bringing them all together.

Dark Celebration is a celebration of the Carpathian series. It was wonderful with the glimpses in the lives of the characters we haven't seen lately. There are also introductions to the stories that are yet to come. Through it all, is the endless love that lifemates have for one another, the familial camaraderie so many of them have, and the hope that those warriors without lifemates will be able to hold on until they find their own. I hope that it doesn't take another 17 stories before Ms Feehan decides to do yet another "celebration".
