Because there are so many books in the Dark series and they all have the same basic premise I thought it would help to give you the background for the novels first before getting into what is covered by each particular book. So here we go…. Deep in the Carpathian Mountains a hidden race of people are slowly dying out. The Carpathians are not human but some kind of sub-species; they are gifted with incredible powers such as an increased ability to see at night and an acute sense of smell and sharp hearing.

You are my life. My heart. There is no Mikhail without Raven. This first book, actually had a gentler male character, despite setting the scene for equally arrogant male characters to come. Compassionately, she reaches out to him, and gives him enough hope so as to convince him that life may still be worth living. Mikhail finds himself intrigued with this gentle soul, and knows she is the light to his darkness.
After a few days of telepathically communicating together, he decides he must have her — she is his. She forced her mind to go blank, to be a slate wiped clean. It hurt, sent darts of pain through her head, made her stomach clench. He was not going to take what she would have given freely. Why do you fight me when you know I am the stronger?? You hurt yourself, wear yourself out, and in the end I will win anyway. And I am capable of commanding your obedience on a much different level.
She could feel his puzzlement. I am sorry little one. I am used to getting my way with the least amount of effort. She soon discovers the true nature of this Carpathian. His race, diminished by murderers, and the lack of Carpathian females being born, forces him to control all aspects of their way of life. The men of his species are lacking female lifemates the light to their potential darkness. We are cursed for the need of one mate, a sharing of souls.
Once this occurs-and the ritual can be brutal to an innocent woman-we cannot live apart from our mates. Our children are few; we lose many in the first year and most of these are born male.
We are blessed and cursed with longevity. For those of us who are happy, a long life is a blessing; for someone alone and tormented, it is a curse. It is one long eternity of darkness, a barren, stark existence. Am I really so terrible? I would never allow any living creature, man or beast, to harm you, not if it was in my power to prevent it. I thought our hearts and mind were in the same place.
Am I wrong? Is it that you no longer want me? One of my favorite parts of the book occurs in Chapter 7. He caught her hand. It is important to me. I loooove this book already. I just read your review on this yesterday and was convinced to buy it on the bookstore near our home.
But to my luck I was able to find one. So how far are you into the book? What do you think so far? Book 2 the next one is my favorite so far in the series. You bet! That was of course a couple of years ago and we are like anti-ebooks back then because we think its still best to have a hard copy and not to rely on technology so much. Going back, when I read about the Carpathian race it instantly established a kingdom on my own fantasy world.
Dark Series has come a long way. Well, at the some parts are a bit too fast for me. All I know is that the males are all powerful but needs to find their mates or else they will die from their loss. It was a funny thing because at least those macho males have vulnerability.
As Marilyn Monroe said:. The whole arrogant-macho chuchu thing is slightly irritating. It was too much for me. I belong to you. I offer my life for you. I give to you my protection, my allegiance, my heart, my soul, and my body. I take into my keeping the same that is yours. Your life, happiness, and welfare will be cherished and placed above my own for all time. You are my life mate, bound to me for all eternity and always in my care. I have all of the books in this series.
They are hard to find. But I had to have them all. After reading 5 or so, I stared skimming through the love scenes. The back store is so good! I counted 25 book In my collection, I may have loaned a few out though. While mentally connected to her: Tell me your name.
It was a command, and Raven felt compelled to obey it. Why do you force what I would have given, had you simply asked? Notify of. Inline Feedbacks. Maryse's Book Blog.
