Christine Feehan's Carpathian series is perfect for Halloween. The whole series surrounds vampires, dark mages, and the struggle for the souls of the men. But, for my Fright Month special, I am going to feature my all-time favorite of her Carpathian books. I love many of these stories, Darius' story, Jacques' story, Falcon, and Raphael's story are just a few of my favorites. But my number one favorite, and the one I am featuring here for Fright Month is Dayan's story, Dark Melody.
Dayan, one of the lost children of the Carpathian people and a member of the musical group The Dark Troubadors, meets his lifemate in a bar that he stopped to jam at for the night. Corinne restores colors, emotions, and desires to Dayan, but claiming her will be no simple task. The people responsible for murdering her husband are on her tail. As if that weren't difficult enough, Corinne is suffering from a failing heart.
Normally, Dayan would be able to turn her and fix her failing heart, but Corinne is pregnant with a female child with psychic abilities. The kind of child the Carpathian race desperately needs in order to continue. Turning Corinne would endanger the baby so Dayan must call on the aid of the vast network of Carpathians to help save his lifemate and the unborn child all the while protecting her from the murderous society of vampire investigators who killed her husband.
Dark Melody is my all-time top of the line favorite of the Carpathian books. Dayan is such a sweet and wonderfully tragic hero, and you're heart can't help but break for poor Corinne and all that she has had to struggle against. Dark Melody by Christine Feehan is out and available. If you'd like to know more about any of Christine Feehan's books, click on the link I have up for her website. Until Monday, Happy Haunting!
