I also really enjoyed the twin dynamic between Gabriel and Lucien. Unlike Aidan and Julian, these two have a tangible connection. And the addition of young Skylar to the family, touches a real chord.
Already, Feehan is laying the foundation for that one day love story between her and Dimitri As with all the books in this series, there's a bit of repetition. We get reminded of the same facts over and over. And Ms Feehan reminds us again that her favorite words are velvet, lightning and sheath.
Still, one of better books in the series. A little over 4 stars. Word count: Velvet - 18; Sheath - 9; Lightning - 24 though to be fair, a few of those actually did refer to the weather phenomenon.

The only thing I didn't like about Lucian, and it really isn't Lucian's fault, is that I had gotten it engrained in my head that Gregori is the most powerful Carpathian. Now all of these old folks are showing up.
Gregori is looking like a kid LOL! But seriously, the interaction and love from brother to brother is wonderful and I like it that even in the midst of being hunted by his brother, Lucian felt hi The best thing about this book was the relationship between Gabriel and Lucian. But seriously, the interaction and love from brother to brother is wonderful and I like it that even in the midst of being hunted by his brother, Lucian felt his brother's pain and immediately asked if he needed assistance.
Looking forward to the story that must follow, as well as Skylar's story. As for Francesca, I have not totally warmed up to her yet.
I felt her strength as an ancient female Carpathian, however, in other stories, the mates would lend their strength to their mates in time of battle and great need. She was busy whining over Brice let that fool die.
I felt his presence was totally pointless and lack purpose and direction. He did not even truly offer a distraction, which is good, because I was more interested in the verbal ping pong between Lucian and Gabriel.
I would also like to see a Carpathian female capable of killing if the time arose. What female would not kill a true threat to her, her mate, or her child? And seriously, Francesca is so powerful, yet she can't stop being pulled into a cemetary by a human. I have a feeling a Carpathian worth her salt is coming just from book covers, however, I will wait patiently until I meet her.

She's existed for many years and managed to hide herself from the Carpathian males and the vampires. She figured out how to live as a human. I love her big heart, how she takes care of the homeless people and heals the sick.
She was a great heroine.
I also liked Gabriel. He accepted Francesca as she was, embracing her personality and her strengths, and admiring and supporting her. Skylar's story just ab My favorite things about this Carpathian books were: Skylar's story just about broke my heart. There I was sitting in the airport, tears coming out of my eyes as I read about her suffering.
It just about made me homocidal to read about a so-called father doing that to his daughter. The cat and mouse game between Gabriel and Lucian kept my interest. I think Feehan did a great job keeping the suspense where you wondered what was up with Lucian, but at the same time could believe he was redeemable, the way he was helping Skylar and protecting Francesca. I was very happy with the resolution of the angst between Gabriel and Lucian.
Although there was no big bang in this story, per se, I still really enjoyed it. Sep 14, Jules rated it liked it. OMG, just get to the damn point already!!!! How the heroine felt about the hero, or her doctor friend who was also in love with her.
As for the hero, he couldn't stop talking about his feelings for his vampire twin brother, his flaming desire for the heroine, or his fierce protectiveness for the teenage girl he has placed under his care.
I can't believe I'm saying this but I actually wanted less talk and more action. What kep OMG, just get to the damn point already!!!!
What kept me going was the hope that the evil twin, who is more powerful than the hero, would find a love interest in this book. But nope. His ass ends up with a big fat zero, alluding to the fact that you need to read the next book to see if he finds his life mate.
Sherrilyn Kenyon's fans. Adorei este livro! Jan 23, Izy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is Gabriel and Francesca's story.
Gabriel is one of the ancients and the one-half of the infamous hunter twins who devoted their life to the duty they had towards their people. While Francesca is also an ancient but not as old as Gabriel, She had decided to live her last few years on earth as a human. I really enjoyed Francesca and Gabriel's story, their connection and the love they had for their adopted child.
Oct 30, Rae rated it really liked it. I liked Francesa's character. She had her own identity. It wasn't over-the-top like Jaxon who was tough in her own mind but whined and unreal or Destiny who I actually liked but she seemed slightly manish.
Oct 23, Louisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Such a great book, and I knew what was going on, and yet it was so freaking good, knowing that Lucien was just faking it, to protect Gabriel! So good, so loving this series! Sep 09, Delta rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mar 24, Candace rated it it was amazing Shelves: Gabriel has bound his life to Lucian, who has risen before him.
Francesca finds Gabriel, who desperately needs blood, stumbling down the walkway in modern day Paris, France. She mistakes him for a homeless man. When the shelter is too full to take him, she decides to take Gabriel to her home. Once at her home, she grabs a bowl to fix him soup. Gabriel can wait no longer. He must have blood. He tells Francesca he is sorry. She knows what Gabriel needs and offers her life for his, exposing her nec Gabriel has bound his life to Lucian, who has risen before him.
She knows what Gabriel needs and offers her life for his, exposing her neck. He realizes Francesca is his lifemate the moment he takes her blood. She knows he is Gabriel, the Legend. Francesca is not about to be tied to a man who left her alone all those centuries ago.
Besides, she has discovered and led a life all on her own. She has plans to meet her end by walking into the sun. In the meantime, Lucian has risen before his brother. Gabriel knows he will have to destroy him, a vampire without equal. It's the most difficult thing Gabriel has to do -- to kill his own brother. I found this novel heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time.
The whole book I knew Lucian would have to be destroyed and that this responsibility had fallen to his brother, Gabriel, to do. There is always the hope of lifemates to heal the sorrow and build a new life together. We also meet Skylar, a fourteen-year-old abused, human child, whom Francesca and Gabriel adopt into their home. Francesca heals the abuse but doesn't remove Skylar's memories.
We have the usual human servant and vampires to fight and destroy, but the most heartbreaking of all is the ensuring battle to play out between the two brothers. This is definitely a novel to delve into for its emotional impact on each reader.
I have a secret……. If I start reading the first book in a series I have to read them all……what a luck that my friend gave me the first 12 or 13 books in the Dark Series….
I had to know more about these amazing characters……. With each new book, I discover new exciting, interesting characters……. Gabriel had injured Lucian who had turned to the other side…i. Thousands of years later, Gabriel is awakened from their burial place in a Paris cemetery and knows he has to find his brother before he goes on a killing spree.
He discovers a different world from the one he knew and whilst looking for someone to feed his hunger, meets Francesca del Ponce, a beautiful, talented healer has dedicated her life to helping the sick and poor living in the streets. Francesca is the first Carpathian woman in the series has turned away from her people and home hundreds of years ago when she was rejected by Gabriel, who she recognized as her lifemate.
She had made a new life and ensuring that neither Carpathian or vampire would find her. Recognizing her as his lifemate he is determined to do everything in his power for her to give him another chance. Francesca struggles with the feeling she has for Gabriel and how can she ever forgive him? Gabriel is tormented by the love he feels for his brother and the anguish of having to kill him. We are taken to a magical world filled with characters we know and introduced to new ones. Skyler, who becomes the ward of Gabriel and Francesca, breaks your heart….
Will Gabriel have to kill his own brother? This is a touchingly romantic book filled with passion, love, anguish, pain, sexy, erotic and belief in the people you love. I had taken a break from this series there are soooo many of them. Someone made a comment on another review and mentioned that I should go back and read this one I skipped a few.
I'm glad I did. This was definitely one of the better entries in the series. These books get repetitive. It's not that I don't like the plot or premise, but I find I get a bit burnt out when I read them back to back.
This is the story of Gabriel, one of the infamous and legendary twins that are talked about in the pr I had taken a break from this series there are soooo many of them. This is the story of Gabriel, one of the infamous and legendary twins that are talked about in the previous books. In Carpathian legend, they were great warriors who fought for centuries to protect their homeland and to hunt the undead. Everyone assumes they are dead as they haven't been seen in centuries.
According to legend, the brothers had a pact that if one turned vampire the other would hunt him down. Lucien was said to have turned and Gabriel hunted him down. It was believed they both destroyed one another in a great battle, but no one knows for sure. Actually they did not destroy one another, but had been sleeping under a Paris cemetery for hundreds of years after Gabriel bound Lucien during a battle.
Progress, in the form of moving the graves to make way for modern day buildings, woke them both. The first person Gabriel meets in his weakened state is his life mate Francesca. She is also an ancient and has managed to very skillfully hide herself from Carpathians and vampires alike while living almost as a human. She's an ancient herself and has been on her own a long time, so is reluctant to give up the life she built for herself - the basic hallmark of the series.
Independent woman meets overbearing Carpathian male and spends the book smexing it up and then flip-flopping on whether or not she can be with him. In this instance the flip-flop didn't drag on as long. I loved this heroine, she was strong but she also knew what Carpathian men were about and didn't allow them to intimidate her the way a human woman is often intimidated and overwhelmed by them.
She also has a sense of humor about it this being her own species and takes all their posturing with a grain of salt. Gabriel is more reasonable and less overbearing than some of the males, but he definitely has his moments. At his age, I'd have expected him to be far worse than many of the others. Maybe age mellows them out, relatively speaking. Anyway, the big mystery of the book was fairly obvious to me, but it didn't make it less enjoyable. Sep 06, Kazza rated it liked it Shelves: I have a guilty secret well not so secret it's these darn Carpathian books.
Truly they aren't really my style but bloody hell I still read them because there is something about the men that I just like and some of the women too. This book though I personally found a tough read, she was so good, he was so good, no he was so good, no she was Christine Feehan is to be thanked for today's PNR UF books but boy can she waffle sometimes and this book was a waffler and a half.
The I have a guilty secret well not so secret it's these darn Carpathian books. The best thing about Dark Legend was the relationship between the twins, Gabriel and Lucian, it must be nice to feel so close to a sibling and be able to maintain that care and bond you have for and with them. There is so much promise for this series and yet Ms Feehan just falls short on capitilizing on people and situations because she just seems to cover the same ground over and over.
I would like to know what happens to Skyler much like I would like to know what happens with Alexandria's brother from Dark Gold and Gary from Dark Magic.
Some of these books have been really good and others just don't quite live up to what they should, this is one of the latter. I will stick with them and hope the writing gets less flowery and the characters have more done with them as they progress. I was extremely surprised of how much I adored this book. I was frustrated when I realized it would be once more about new characters and not the ones we already know and love. Although I was certain I would have a great time with it as the previous installment already got us introduced to this respected and feared fighter.
Gabriel was one of my favorites so far.
And I adored his mate. While she annoyed me at the beginning, she grew on me fast. In this installment we get to read about a couple c I was extremely surprised of how much I adored this book. In this installment we get to read about a couple composed of two carpathian, which IMHO always make things easier and the pace of the read faster and more entertaining. Everything developed smoothly, in a way that I could not stop reading the damn book.
I was done with in less than 8 hours. I can't help but adore this series and get more into it with every book. I just can't believe I did not started it sooner. Feb 13, Cristina rated it liked it. Mar 24, iamGamz rated it really liked it Shelves: I love Gabriel. And Francesca. The opening of the book had me questioning her sanity when she picked up a desiccated Gabriel, put him in her car and started him driving him around.
I thought she was human and was gonna get nommed. But Gabriel recognized the goodness in her, and even at his most desperate, refused to injure her.
Then I met Skylar. I wanted extreme pain and torture for the monster who called himself her fa I wanted extreme pain and torture for the monster who called himself her father. And I wanted it to last for-freakin-ever! At one point I thought I would be able to step away from this series and read a couple other books.
CF has me hooked. I peeked ahead and know that Syklar gets a book too, but I have to wait for quite a while. I hope there are teasers though. As always, the concept for this series thrills me. I'm drawn to it and I love how it feels so authentic and real. I've always thought of it as a sort of soulmate sort of thing. This book yay, yay, yaaay So this is the first Dark Sage book I've written a review for, so that alone speaks volumes.
This book has a different vibe from the others, I think a lot of it is due to Gabriel. He is incredibly tender and sweet and protective towards Francesca in a way that is a little unusual for the usually heavily domineering Carpathian males.
I also loved the connection between Gabriel and his twin Lucian, and the struggle he had to go through.
