The 18th book in the Carpathian saga is another exciting read from Christine
Feehan. There is action, adventure, good guys winning, a bit of romance but this is
secondary to the story. Im still hunting down the first 16 to read this
series is great!
A short Carpathian vocab list is in the back, along with healing chants and short
history of the Carpatian people. Very detailed and interesting.
Dominic of the Dragonseeker linage takes drastic measures to infiltrate the enemy camp
he ingests vampire blood with parasites. His plan is to get in fast, get the
information he finds to the leader of the Carpathians living in the area, and go out

Why do I like Dark Peril? Because it is well written, keeps you interested from start
to finish and you get to see that even though you are traumatised, there is still a chance
that you can find peace within yourself and the ability to trust again.
You get to see two strong fierce warriors find a softness for each other as they learn
to trust in each other and to find hope in their lives.
