The dark destiny of a hungry woman. The terrifying fate
of a cursed man. Now after a century of longing, the instinct for survival has
united them. Prepare yourself for the new Carpathian novel by “the Queen
of paranormal romance” (USA Today).
A rumor has
persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer—a woman—who travels
with a wolf pack and who destroys any vampire who crosses her path. Mysterious,
elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror
into the hearts of the undead.
She is Ivory Malinov. Her only brethren,
the wolves. Long ago betrayed by her people, abandoned by her family, and cast
out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived a century without companionship
or love. She has sustained her sanity by the habit of the hunt and the custom
of the feeding. Until the night she picks up the scent of a man, her unexpected
salvation. Her lifemate. The curse of all Carpathian women.
Razvan. Branded a criminal, detested and feared, he is a dragonseeker borne of
one of the greatest Carpathian lineages, only to be raised as its most despised—and
captive—enemy. Fleeing from his lifetime of imprisonment, Razvan now seeks
the dawn to end his terrible existence. Instead he has found his deliverance in
the Dark Slayer.
In spirit, in flesh and blood, in love, and in war,
Ivory and Razvan are made for each other. For as long as they dare to live.

~DARK SLAYER JIGZONE PUZZLE~
MAGE BY ANITA TOSTE~
walks forth as the Hell Gate closes
Lighting strikes with his first order
Energy spirals from his fingertips
A spell does form upon his lips
and dark handsomely slender
His silver eyes burn like lighted embers
A power a presence one cannot explain
A drawing feeling that will not leave
A longing a yearning that burns like fire
To be wanted and taken with heated desire
The mage walks forth unfolding
His victim comes quietly succumbed by his charms
embers of passion burst forth in flame
As the mage draws hearts blood from
Consuming all leaving no remains
The victim languishes
in untold pain
The mage having taken body and soul
Now turns from the broken to seek one who is whole
The pattern is set the
ending the same
The mage needs hearts blood to be whole and remain

~DARK SLAYER REVIEWS~
Even new readers daunted by 40 pages of appendixes
and a two-page family tree will love the tender romance in the 20th installment
of Feehan's Carpathians series. Benign blood-drinking Carpathians turn into evil
vampires if they fail to find their destined life mates. Broken and left for dead
after a family betrayal, Ivory Malinov gradually heals, becoming a loner and dedicated
vampire slayer. Razvan's evil grandfather, the mage Xavier, forced him to commit
unspeakable deeds against fellow Carpathians. Ivory discovers Razvan near death,
and after realizing they are life mates, she nurses him back to health and they
plot to combine forces and defeat Xavier. The slow-to-trust Ivory fights her growing
feelings for Razvan, whose self-hatred juxtaposes brilliantly with his innate
gentle nature. Fans looking for a departure from Feehan's usual alpha male heroes
will enjoy this lengthy but powerful tale.
Slayer is the 20th book in the Carpathian series. It was a fantastic, mesmerizing
book that is well written and has fantastic characters. I especially enjoy how
Ms. Feehan is able to draw in the characters from the previous books and let them
play a strong part without taking over the book. This series is definitely a "must
read" to any paranormal romance reader and Dark Slayer will be joining the
rest of the series on my shelves as one to keep and read again.

Feared and derided through much
of this series, dragonseeker Razvan is about to have the truth about him revealed.
In this shattering novel, the incomparable Feehan
tells the story of two protagagonists who have suffered unimaginable horrors.
The power of Feehan lifemate concept is fully explored in the pages of this
mesmerizing novel. For Carpathian fans, this is a game-changing book that
is packed with horrifying danger and unconditional
