Description de l'ouvrage

1 mai 2007

Young Savannah Dubrinsky was a mistress of illusion, a world-famous magician capable of mesmerizing millions. But there was one-Gregori, the Dark One-who held her in terrifying thrall. Whose cold silver eyes and heated sensuality sent shivers of danger, of desire, down her slender spine.

With a dark magic all his own, Gregori-the implacable hunter, the legendary healer, the most powerful of Carpathian males-whispered in Savannah's mind that he was her destiny. That she had been born to save his immortal soul. And now, here in New Orleans, the hour had finally come to claim her. To make her completely his. In a ritual as old as time . . . and as inescapable as eternity.

Par Dassya VOIX VINE
Format:Poche
J'ai dévoré aussi vite que j'ai pu les précédents tomes pour arriver enfin à celui que je convoite. Maintenant, mon orgie de Carpathians peut se calmer.
Le héros, Gregori, est: Aaaaaaahhhhh!!!! Je veux être à la place de Savannah. Aaaaaahhhh!!!! Je deviens totalement hystérique là. Aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!
Alors, histoire géniale, relation entre les héros géniale, scènes hot géniales, personnalité du héros géniale...Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!! Il faut que je me calme.
J'ai versé des larmes, j'ai souri, j'ai même ri, j'ai eu le cœur brisé aussi bien que le cœur en fête. Oh, on a beau être femme du XXIème siècle, moderne et crier haut et fort son indépendance, quand un mâle Carpathian supra-alpha comme Gregori vous clame sienne, on en a les genoux qui tremblent et la libido qui s'affole.
* Gregori, méga-macho: j'en redemande tant Savannah apporte de fraîcheur et d'humour dans son irrévérence.
* Grégori, giga-torturé: oh, ce qu'il est craquant...Sa souffrance fait si mal qu'on a qu'une envie, de le serrer fort pour le réconforter.
* Gregori, téra-tueur: tout le monde sait que j'aime les mecs un brin psychopathe, là j'ai été gâtée par le monstre tueur insensible. Mmmmm, quel Carpathian!
* Gregori, peta-humain: notre loup solitaire qui fait ami-ami avec quelques spécimens de l'espèce humaine, c'est trop attendrissant.
* Et Gregori, ex(tr)a-amant: alors là, 20/20 pour son côté passionné (pourquoi y a pas de type comme lui dans la réalité?

Format:Poche
Les Carpathians sont une "espèce" de vampires dotés d'une âme, mais condamnés à une existence morne et finalement à une mort certaine (enfin, à une transformation en vampires sanguinaires) s'ils ne trouvent pas leur âme soeur. C'est le postulat de base de toute la série des Carpathians, avec généralement des vampires torturés et dominants cherchant leur âme soeur sans relâche, quitte à la ramener dans leur antre de manière peu gracieuse s'ils la découvrent. Leur âme soeur n'en sera finalement pas choquée car elle aussi obéit à ce déterminisme et tombe très rapidement amoureuse de son ravisseur.

C'est suite aux commentaires élogieux sur Amazon que je me suis lancée dans la lecture de ces aventures, que j'ai... détestées, à cause de ce déterminisme de base et parce que les histoires d'amour sont bouclées en 50 pages (les 10 premières pages, les héros se rencontrent, les 30 autres, ils se parlent ou se tapent dessous, les 10 dernières ils font l'amour). Le reste des romans a bien sûr une trame, mais les aventures sont assez convenues, pas originales pour un sou et dénuées de suspense.

Heureusement ce roman, grâce à Savannah, son héroïne, cherche (un peu) à s'écarter de ce déterminisme. La mère de Savannah a été humaine et lui a inculqué des principes de liberté et de libre arbitre. Savannah pensait donc pouvoir s'affranchir de la recherche de l'âme soeur, et quand elle l'a rencontrée, bien que l'ayant reconnue, elle n'a pensé qu'à le fuir.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A "magical" story 31 octobre 2000
Par Countess Chocula - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I had the same feelings as Ketsia as I picked up this book. All of the previous books were so wonderful, but I had been waiting for Gregori's story and was really afraid Ms. Feehan would not be able to pull it off. Boy, was I wrong!
First things first - don't read this book if you are expecting a vampire tale a la Ann Rice or even Amanda Ashley - there are elements both of those types of stories in Feehan's books, but they really are their own genre. Vampire purists will not enjoy these stories, but if you like a book heavy on romance and intimacy, with a paranormal twist, you'll absolutely love Feehan. As purely escapist fiction, I rank the Dark series at the top of my list! Very much like J.D. Robb's Death series, these are characters who are larger than life and stories that will have you reading the books over and over.
I won't summarize the storyline, because the book reviews have already done it, and the overall plotline really isn't what makes these books anyway. The interplay between Gregori and Savannah is the focus, as each comes to terms with living in the other's world. Gregori rivals Robb's Rourke as male perfection - no woman (or reader) could resist either of them, and it's so moving to read of him finally discovering his emotions again; Savannah is one of Feehan's better heroines, feisty and strong, much like her mother Raven.
If you decide to read this series, it really does help to begin with the first book, Dark Prince, and work your way through them in order (Dark Gold was my least favorite, and pretty much could be skipped). It builds familiarity with the characters, and in each of the books you'll find glimpses of all the Carpathians that help flesh out the characters - when you do finally get to Gregori's story, it will be much sweeter for having met him in earlier books.
I'm already anxiously awaiting Julian's story in November (the first chapter hints that maybe his lifemate is someone very close to Gregori), and hope Feehan continues the series for a long time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 GREGORI'S STORY IS OUTSTANDING! 16 juillet 2000
Par Carolyn Christy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I am an absolute fanatic over that bad boy Gregori. I have BURNED for this book since April. DARK MAGIC is the fourth book in the Carpathian series written by top notch author, Christine Feehan. For nearly a thousand years Gregori, the relentless hunter of the undead and the most powerful of the Carpathians has struggled with the darkness. He is teetering on the brink of madness. The beast within him strong. He can wait no longer and seeks out his lifemate. Savannah Dubrinsky, daughter of the Prince of the Carpathians (Mikhail & Raven) is a world famous magician. More than anything she desires her own independence and does not want to be a lifemate to anyone. Especially to one as powerful and menacing as Gregori. She runs from him. From his dark sensuality and the intensity of her feelings for him. Years before, he came to claim her as his lifemate. Right away she notices how very different Gregori is from the other young men. He is much more powerful and very, very frightening. As his cold silver eyes glided over her, she feels an awakening within her body as if something wild within her longs for him. He speaks to her mind that she BELONGS to him and no one else. With a kiss that scourches her soul, her fate for all time is sealed. Savannah's life changes in that very instant. She fears not only the total control Gregori would have over her but also the intensity of her feelings. In desperation, she pleads with him to give her her freedom. Very reluctantly, he agrees giving her five years. But in the waiting there is much danger. Now the vow he has made to her is at an end and so is his control. He is very close to turning and is now unable to seek the dawn to kill himself. He knows how incredibly powerful he is. Knows that there is no one who could defeat him. Not Mikhail or even Aidan could hope to destroy him. He knows that if he should turn vampire, he would tear the world apart. Gregori can no longer trust himself and seizes Savannah. But it is too late. Having her presence near him sends him toppling over the edge. The struggle between man and beast is AWESOME and totally believable in one who has struggled with insurmountable darkness for endless centuries. Savannah merges her mind with his and "feels" the suffering he has endured for her. For the first time, she understands Gregori's plight. The five years of freedom he had given her had been so very horrible for him to endure. She is consumed with guilt for it is her fear and young age that have brought so powerful a man to such a pitiful, horrible state. She reaches out to him despite her fear, offering herself to him. That acceptance slowly allows the man to gain control over the beast. DARK MAGIC is brimming with dark emotions, incredible sensuality and violence. All of us who have read the very first book in the series knows that Gregori is a hard man. He has suffered more than any other Carpathian for he is called upon to dispense justice and all of that killing has taken its toll. His own people fear him and the immense power he possesses. Knowing this, he willingly isolates himself even though he is aching for acceptance. He believes his soul is forever lost and in a desperate bid for salvation, he tampers with nature. He agonizes over Savannah one day discovering how he had manipulated their chemistry many years before. Agonizes that there very well might be her "true" lifemate waiting for her. Agonizes that her heart will never be his! DARK MAGIC is definitely a KEEPER. Christine, girl, you did an OUTSTANDING job with my bad boy's story. THANK YOU! Carolyn

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Christine Feehan has done it again! 20 juillet 2000
Par Ketsia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I must admit that it was with some apprehension that I purchased Dark Magic. Oh,I've enjoyed the three previous books, and consider myself both a fan of Christine Feehan and her Dark Saga, but having waited for Gregori's story for so long, I was afraid that it wouldn't live up to my expectations. I'm happy to report that my fears were unfounded. Dark Magic was all that I expected and more. Dark, Erotic, Funny, and touching, this story grabs and holds ones attention until the end.
After years of darkness, Gregori, legendary healer and hunter/killer for the Carpathian race finally claims his life mate. Believing that his years of killing, and his tampering with nature (In Dark Prince and Dark Desire, Gregori, through knowledge attained over the centuries, manipulates events to ensure that Raven gives birth to his life mate) have stained his soul and made him unworthy and incapable of attaining the love of the heroine, Gregori refuses to believe and trust in the gem he has been given. It is up to Savannah to prove him wrong. Strong and with the blood of the ancients (Prince Mikhail, the leader of the Carpathians is her father) running through her veins, Savannah is more than a match for Gregori. She challenges him, gives him fits, and teaches him to laugh and trust.
A must read for paranormal romance fans. Bravo Christine! So happy to hear that more stories of the Dark Saga are planned.The Carpathian addict that I have become is doing back flips as I type. :-)
Also, recommend Dark Prince, Dark Desire and Dark Gold.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark Magic - 3.5 stars 30 juin 2006
Par A. Jane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I wanted to give this story less stars because of the repetitive use of adjectives, the redundancy, and the plain cut and paste fight scenes (the fight scenes more so in this book then others), and the over use of sex (okay maybe not so much in this story as in some of the others). The repetition is the worst offense though as far as I'm concerned, with the redundancy coming in second (it comes across as padding to cover a lack of material). I mean I get it, Savannah has blue-black hair and Gregori's eyes turn to molten mercury (Don't get me started on this metaphor); that it's like white-lightning when they drink each other's blood; and any other number of over-told descriptions.

I'm also not a fan of overly-macho men, but I can over look that to a degree as long as I sense some respect from the man towards the woman (which I did feel more from Gregori then some of the other of Christine Feehan's characters *cough* dark secret *cough*). Yes, I know that the men supposedly gain respect over the length of the novel, but it doesn't always come across that way in this series. And I thoroughly dislike when a woman starts out as perky and becomes some simpering stupid girl (Again *cough* dark secret *cough*).

The reason I gave this story as many stars as I did, is I happened to like the story (mainly the concept) and the characters. I liked how Gregori evolved, how he became more "human", and I liked the rhythm he and Savannah got into. Hell, I liked the fact that the man gave her five years to do whatever she felt she needed, despite the fact he was so close to turning. Now, I didn't quite like the feeling that Savannah was making excuses for him in the beginning. BUT I'm not sure that's exactly what Christine Feehan was going for, I think she was trying to have Savannah come across as the compassionate person the Carpathian women are supposed to be, and that she wanted to show Savannah coming to understand the sacrifices Gregori made for their people. But I've only come to this conclusion, what CF was trying to get at, after long discussions with my mother after she's read each of the books.

I'm going to go off on a bit of tangent here. From the earlier novels, I came to the conclusion that when Raven discovered she was pregnant she had been a Carpathian for 25yrs, then add the 18yrs of Savannah growing up before she left and I want to know what the hell was up with Mikhail not having straightened Raven out (man I hate saying it like that) on how things were? Seriously, I think that was enough time for Raven to understand how the men fanatically protected their women (almost to the point of negating the women's abilities, powers, etc...). Raven did a major disservice to her daughter because of her refusal to understand just what the Carpathians were going through. Yes, she wanted her daughter to be independent thinking, which is fine and I applaud her, but at the same time she let Savannah think that there was actually some choice, which with the way CF has written her characters and story, there wasn't and never would be.

And that last thought leads me to this opinion: I don't think that CF has a complete handle on how to tell the story she wants to tell. I think she has a great concept and the characters are interesting which is why I have continued reading the Dark Series despite my earlier complaints (which I have for all of her books--some more then others. And in the later ones she doesn't seem to have a handle on her time line). In the end though, I think this series could be a lot better if the repetitious adjectives and the redundant explanations were to be eliminated.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark Magic...not gory but Glory, as in Glorious Gregori! 11 juillet 2000
Par Lee Haskell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is what was going through my mind as I opened the book: While I waited for this 4th book ( I read Feehan's first 3 books months ago) I had worried that I may have anticipated the wait too much and now the book would never meet my forever increasing expectations. Expectations which seemed to heighten the longer I waited. At this point, I felt bad for the book since unless it was going to be the perfect book, it would surely disappoint me. I also worried about the heroine. I've know Gregori through the first 3 books and knew this hero would need a strong heroine (i.e.: non-whiny). Nothing ruins a good book like an ill-matched couple. You know the kind. You'll be reading a book w/disbelief that the hero can be attracted to such a helpless, whiny, always breaking out in tears kind of annoying female. On top of that, the day I got the book, I wasn't in the mood to read another bloody vampire novel. I'd just gotten through reading a mediocre vampire/wolf book (not Feehan obviously) and was in the mood for a different genre. (or so I thought)
Sigh, all my worries were for naught. She did not disappoint. And that's as understating it as if I had said Gregori could do a few slight of hand tricks. Feehan surpassed all my "hard-to-live-up-to" expectations and erased all the useless worries from my mind as easily as Gregori could to any mortal.
Savannah is a perfect match for Gregori. The discovery of how good a match they are is revealed in a timely manner to both Gregori and the reader. Her strengths aren't just her determined spirit and nature but best of all, her sense of humor. This book instills at the right times, a sense of humor which is not at all out of place. I want to give examples but I want you to discover every one of them yourself. I want you to enjoy as I did how they each compliment the other as no one else can. How they become better people...oops, I meant, Carpathians by having the other in their immortal life.
And whether Carpathians or mortals, isn't that what it's all about? Two that become better as one. Why else team up? I wish this book had been hundreds of pages longer. I could go on reading about this new side of Gregori now that his light beacon (lifemate)by the name of Savannah has transformed him by giving him hope. I won't ask if there will be a next book to this series but instead hope the next book is going to be about Julian and that professional singer. My canines are already itching to bite into Feehan's next book.
