Présentation de l'éditeur

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

With her erotically charged Carpathian tales, Christine Feehan has enthralled a legion of fans, captivating them with a seductive world and the unforgettable characters-both human and not-who inhabit it. Now, she reunites all of them in a Dark Celebration...

Biographie de l'auteur

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

For those who have devoured Christine Feehan's other Carpathian novels, this is the opportunity to catch up on all the characters we've come to love. Gregori & Savannah, Raphael & Colby, Dayan & Corinne, Darius & Tempest and the others have all gathered to celebrate Christmas in the Carpathian mountains with their prankster prince and his lifemate.

One of the funniest of the series, there's still enough evil for those delectable Carpathian warriors to strut their stuff. Lighter reading than the other books in the series, but with tantalizing promises of more Carpathian novels to come...

Feehan's BACK!!! 6 septembre 2006
Par 30 Book A Month Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Seeing as how I blasted Feehan for Dark Demon, it was only fair to take the time to tell everyone how much I enjoyed Dark Celebration. Author Feehan does a great job of bringing in every single couple (no joke) from her previous books, as well as all their children.

Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky is humoring his lifemate, Raven, by throwing a true Christmas Celebration for Carpathians and their human friends. All the Carpathians have showed up, and the running joke through the book is which of the hunters will be playing Santa Claus. While the book has humorous and lighthearted elements, the story also has its dark spots as there are numerous attacks on the women & children of the Carpathians. What makes the book really interesting is that two new lifemates are found and Prince Dubrinsky finally looks as if he has found a cure for the infertility and low birth rate of the Carpathian women. How the knowledge comes about and who actually supplies the cure is really great! Based on this plot device, it made me wonder just how far Feehan has had this series plotted out!! Reading this book was like early Feehan - Dark Celebration contained all the elements that made her Dark series so successful - mental and emotional intimacy between 2 people; resolving actual problems within the same book; visits with past pairs (in this case, everyone)and great sex scenes. I highly recommend this book. It will go on everyone's keeper shelf, and I guarantee you find yourself reading it more than once.

Dark Celebration 7 septembre 2006
Par M. Nix - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It is Christmas in the Carpathian Mountains and from all over the world these intensely sumptuous and dangerous men are returning to their homeland. Some are bringing their lifemates and some are bringing their children. But all of them are looking for a moment of peace and happiness.

The female lifemates are determined to make this a celebration to remember. Complete with homemade baking, turkey with all the trimmings and miscellaneous games and fun planned for everyone to participate in. The Carpathian men do not normally celebrate the holidays, but they are willing to do anything for the women in their lives. Willing, that is, until they find out one of them has to play Santa Claus for the children, complete with the white beard and round belly. Big, tough Carpathian men turning white and panicking at the very horrors of the dreaded Santa Suit.

Unfortunately there is a presence out there that is determined to ruin their plans for peace and happiness. Up until now all the attacks by their enemies; vampires, dark mages, and human hunters have concentrated on the Carpathian men. But to strike at where they are most vulnerable would be to strike at their women and children. And although they have celebrated minor victories with the few female children who have been born, there have still been miscarriages. And for the few that are either pregnant or thinking about trying for more children, it is a harrowing time.

The unthinkable happens and an enemy starts to attack the females, hitting at their worst fears and bringing them close to death with every attack. The Carpathians must now unite together to become stronger, faster, and more deadly than their enemies. Now the males must depend on their women in this fight; to use both their skills and gifts, even as they fight to protect them.

I can't tell you how excited I was to read Dark Celebration. I have been looking forward to it for the longest time and I certainly am not the only one. In fact, there was a knock-down drag-out fight among the reviewers to see who would get to review Dark Celebration when it came in. I managed to emerge victorious, if slightly bruised and scraped and I am so thankful I did!!

Dark Celebration brings back all of the beloved characters from the previous Dark books and introduces a few new ones and Christine Feehan manages to weave them together in a breathtaking and engaging way. The threat to the Carpathians kept me turning the page to find out what would happen next, and I loved how everyone banded together to fight against an evil so terrifying that it could mean the end of the Carpathians completely. Christine Feehan's Carpathians are a true family and Dark Celebration shows their bonds in intense and vivid colors. Their antics on the page kept me in stitches, and their love for each other shone through in every scene. I truly felt a part of this big, boisterous and incredibly sensuous clan and I can't wait for the next adventure in this series!!

Fun for the initiated--puzzling for the newby! 15 décembre 2006
Par Betty Spaulding in Chattanooga - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
What a neat holiday gift for all us Feehan fans! The author brings in all the old friends and couples, sets up some new story lines, and makes at least ONE of my own predictions come true when she lifemates the wolfman and the Parisian orphan girl.

If you haven't read any of the Carpathian books, don't start with this one. The pleasure is in the backstories and the bringing-up-to-date, and if you don't already know these people, nothing will make sense.

There are some really funny scenes, and the whole atmosphere is light-hearted. Sure, there's a Dreadful Threat, but we know all along that things will turn out OK.

I really enjoy all these books (as well as those in another of her series, the seven sisters.) The Carpathians are great, and though at my advanced age (65!) I tend to skim the sex scenes with a feeling of "Yeah, yeah, yeah. Get back to the story, people!" I consider most of these books keepers and re-read them off and on (mostly when I am down with the flu and need something comforting and familiar to pass the time,) and recommend them to anyone who likes vampires, good vs. evil, and so forth.

I pre-ordered this one, and was delighted when it arrived in September. I didn't expect a riveting storyline, and when I didn't get it, it didn't faze me. I felt that the book sort of cleansed the palate for the next set, to which I look forward.

Thanks, Ms. Feehan!

Dark Disappointment 12 septembre 2006
Par Sarebral Cortext - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I loved Dark Prince, Dark Desire, Dark Fire, and Dark Guardian. I have read them so much, that the bindings are worn out. I wanted to love Dark Symphony, Dark Melody etc. I have not found the recent offerings to be as compelling as the earlier books. When I saw that Ms. Feehan had gone the route of hardback, I reluctantly carried the book to the cashier with a dark doubt that this book would come through.

A reunion makes for a challenge in terms of cohesion and plot continuity. Feehan's plot consists of spending most of the book following Mikhail as he makes the rounds of party planning, checking in with Dark couples from past books being caught in various stages of feed and seed, which loses it's appeal without the emotional development. But the blatant cliff hanging, particularly when the timeliness of new release on this series is getting slower and slower is what makes this book a dark disappointment. There are romances left dangling, and several plot threads and character issues abruptly abandoned.

Recipes? Please, that is what your website is for. Language? Maybe for die hard fans who don't have a life - again - website fodder. How about finishing the book? Editor - what were you thinking? Ms. Feehan - If you are so stretched with your other series that this is the best you can do for your fans (and at hardback and overpriced paper back prices) then do us a favor and wrap it up. It would be better than blatantly taking advantage of those of us who have truly loved your Carpathians. I find myself wishing that somehow, someone else would pick up the stories and return this series to its former glory.

Leaves you wanting more... 11 septembre 2006
Par Felice N. Tixx - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
While this is definitely a book for your Feehan collection, don't expect her usual fare. Have you ever visited her website and read the first chapters that are posted for her books? Well, that's what Dark Celebration reminded me of - I would get to the end of a chapter and want more.

In what I feel is a major mistake, Ms. Feehan has expanded on the jaguar theme and we discover that a couple of characters (one well known) have "jaguar blood." I personally found this to be way too contrived and totally unnecessary. What was she thinking? Adding a new character who is a descendent of the jaguar people is one thing, but suddenly discovering that a recurring character has jaguar blood was beyond belief. We are to believe that Gregori, with all of his powers, didn't pick up on this interesting tidbit? No way!

I also had a problem with having the Carpathians prepare the food for the Christmas celebration. Since they do not eat food and find eating meat abhorrent, what are they doing cooking what amounts to an old fashioned "covered dish dinner," especially the turkey? True, the cooking supplied some comedic relief, but it was also distracting because I kept wondering why they didn't just wave a hand and make the food appear.

It was interesting to catch up on the characters that we have met in previous novels and to get "teasers" on characters to be featured in future books. That said, I have always thought it remiss that Syndil and Barack were never featured in their own novel or novella, but at least we received a bit more information about their relationship. Dark Celebration is a good transition book, but it will definitely leave you wanting more.
