Christine Feehan – Dark Slayer
Book 20 in the Carpathian (Dark) series
Star Rating 2 out of 5 (would have been 3 except I skipped so much of it)
I have been reading Ms Feehan for a long time now, having found her through this series andI have come to enjoy her work but with varying degrees. Some books I love, some are ok but I like , some I don’t. Having said that I think I have become slightly bored with this series. The chants and language is driving me absolutely insane. Other than waiting for Skylar’s book I think I will end this series with this book…I will leave it on a high!
I did enjoy the story, having long awaited Ravans story and it didnt disappoint. Ravan and Ivory were both wonderfully written characters full of angst, pain and strength of character. Both on the fringes of civilisation, both put there by Xavier and both determined to bring him to justice…their justice.
What I liked most about this book though was the departure from the stereo type of the Carpathinan male and his mate. Ivory is the stronger of the two, Ivory is the warrior and the one best able to defeat Xavier, Ravan is her mate and her aid together they are whole, defining neither and yet both. And I loved that aspect of the story.
However as with the last few books I skipped a huge chunk of story where healing chants were done, and healing processes were explained to death, where language and translation were given time and time again. It detracted from the story for me, and it annoyed me.
So I will step back from the series, wait for Skylars story and then bid it a fond farewell, I have enjoyed my time with it but its time for pastures new…and the Jaguar series is looking good!
