~THE ONLY ONE~
Last Updated: April 23, 2014 17:05:17


The Only One by Christine Feehan For Each,
There Could Be Only One

They came from the darkest places: secluded monasteries, the Carpathian mountains, galaxies under siege. They were men with the blackest pasts-warriors, vampire monks, leaders of armies-but whose passions burned like dying stars. They had one purpose: to find those women who fulfilled them, completed them, and made them rage with a fire both holy and profane. They sought soul mates whose touch consumed them with desire, yet whose kisses refreshed like the coolest rain. And each man knew that for him there was only one true love-and in finding her, he would find salvation.

~AUTHOR'S NOTES~

Christine FeehanDark Descent tells the story of Joie Sanders, a bodyguard and Traian Trigovise, an ancient hunter, meeting after a battle in a deep cave filled with mystery and wonder. Set in the Carpathian Mountains, Joie, with her brother and sister go caving and come across the ancient warrior beset upon by several vampires. They have no choice but to throw their lot in with the hunter and do their best to escape with their lives from the underground labyrinth filled with ancient traps left behind by a powerful race.

I am pleased to say that I will be sharing this anthology with Susan Grant and Susan Squires, two innovative writers both of whom are unafraid of taking chances.

Will thrill, fascinate, and give readers a glimpse at… Ms. Feehan's story is a new addition to her Carpathians…..

ParaNormalRomance Reviews

This book is fan-fricking-tastic -- it's a good book …I loved the ideas in this book, the fact that these two were communicating long before they met in the flesh... a kind of Carpathian Internet... and that once again, it is the heroine's choice to push matters forward. There is a beautiful mix of humor and intense action in this story and quite a bit of whimsy. While short, as a novella must be, Dark Descent still manages to pack the same punch as the rest of Feehan's books.

"strong anthology"

Dark Decent by Christine Feehan. Ancient Carpathian hunter Traian Trigovise realizes tracking this cunning vampire won't be easy as Gallent is no fledgling. His belief proved right when the trap is sprung. In Austria, Joie Sanders takes a bullet protecting a US senator and his wife. Many miles apart, a psychic link between the injured duo sends Joie climbing the Carpathian Mountains to rescue Traian, not realizing the danger she is in and the love she will find.

Dark forces are gathering, and readers are the lucky recipients. Bestselling author Christine Feehan kicks things off with a new Carpathian thriller titled "Dark Descent," in which successful bodyguard Joie Sanders follows a psychic connection into the Carpathian Mountains to rescue a wounded Traian Trigovie, never dreaming of the dangers she will discover…

Love Romances

Ms. Feehan expands her world even more, adding a fantastical element in the form of the wizards' world, complete with magical spells, curses, and dragons. She has added new factors, evidence that her world is far from being complete. As always, one will be captivated from the first paragraph, featuring the vivid battle of Traian vs. the band of evil undead. She holds the reader in her spell all the way through the final climactic scene resolving one storyline, but leaving another wide open, hopefully to be carried into future books in the series.

Those skeptics out there who claimed the Dark saga was getting old and stale are in for a surprise as that couldn't be farther from the truth. Ms. Feehan's voice is as fresh as ever, and with all the new elements to the saga being added in this story, the excitement is bound to continue for a long time coming. The only thing wrong with this story was that it was way too short!

Library Journal

This trio of stories explores romance with an otherworldly edge.

In "Dark Descent," the newest installment of Feehan's mesmerizing "Carpathian (Dark)" series, an aggressive, multitalented professional body guard/secret service agent who never lets danger or the unknown stop her becomes the lifemate of a powerful immortal embroiled in a battle with the vampires.

In "The Star Queen," Susan Grant's prequel to her popular Star books, a munitions developer/producer finds love with a rebel leader who begins the peace process in one corner of the galaxy.

In "Sacrilege," a spinoff of Susan Squire's popular Sacrament, the vampire heroine (a recovering "addict") is quite strong but generally seeks to avoid rather than embrace adventure.

This highly sensual, exceptionally well-done anthology by three of alternative reality's top writers will appeal to devoted fans and is well worth the notice of readers who have not experimented with this subgenre.

A story of love found, a story of joy, "Dark Descent" is also full of action and suspense, where we discover that what one sees may not always be what is. This is a story of the tight bonds of family and what the discovery of your soulmate brings to your life. This story reunites us with a favorite old friend and informs us of what could be. Steamy love scenes interspersed with love of family make this a true book of happiness and peace, in the midst of the possibility of failure. This, as with any of Ms. Feehan's previous titles, could be a place for new fans to embrace her series. Or, it feels like an old friend to those who know and love her Carpathian world.

It is my opinion that this is the absolute best romantic "vampire" series that has ever been written. Ms. Feehan continually outdoes each story. Her description of Traian tracking the vampires during the first couple pages has the best descriptive imagery I have ever read. We also revisit one of my favorite characters, and Joie's siblings scream for romances of their own. I cannot recommend this series enough - however, I stress that it is best to start with Dark Prince - the first in the series. Although each story stands on it's own - why ruin your fun?

Rating: 5 Roses

DARK DESCENT is another fascinating reading foray into the incredible world of the Carpathians. Ms. Feehan's unbeatable top-talent writing in the paranormal romance genre shows in each of her DARK stories, and her newest is no exception. Ms. Feehan has done it again! This 'reader-fan reviewer' is not surprised --- she's never disappointed me. Don't miss this exciting addition to the wonderful, passionate DARK series! This is a "must-not-miss-book"!
