Book - Dark Melody

Dark Melody (The Carpathians (Dark) Series, Book 12)… by Christine Feehan
Using the music he once felt in his heart to be able to survive centuries without emotions, Dayan played his music and watched as his family finally found their other halves. Hearing the music of the Dark Troubadours had always left Corinne Wentworth with such an odd feeling, but actually seeing one of the bands members perform was a rare treat she would take with her always. Dayan could not believe he had finally found her, only to find she had a high risk pregnancy because of advanced heart failure. He could save her, he needed to save her to save himself. He had a family that would support him, help him, encourage him, and most of all, they would help her and her child for him.

Book 12 ….. Quite a bit different than most of the Carpathian books. Very little action, relatively no vampire activity and only a couple of minor skirmishes with ‘The Society’. The ‘enemy’ in this story was Corinne’s body, her failing heart and the danger to her baby. The emotional battles were well written for anyone who likes to explore the emotional aspects of these great characters. The return of so many other Carpathians to help was great as was the mention of so many more. The reminder that all of these books/stories are only weeks apart in ’their’ timeline, (I guess I always thought they were years apart) it is interesting to realize how Tempest is adjusting so quickly.
