Review: Dark Predator by Christine Feehan

Sep 24, 2011

Book 22

As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.
The answer awaits him back home, in Peru, in the betrayal of a woman who is readying her trap, in the vengeance of an old enemy, in the inevitable consequences of a bloody family legacy-and in the deliverance of a lifemate he never could have imagined...

(Book Description)

I gave this book a 3

Dark Predator is the 22nd book in the series.  Many will remember Zacarias De La Cruz from previous books in the series along side his brothers.  Zacarias' story was much anticipated, we all wanted this dark warrior to find his happiness. Dark Predator does just that!   Zacarias finds his salvation in the lovely Marguarita, who gave her life for him in a previous book.  Sadly, Dark Predator is another example of a series that has become dull and lacking.  The Carpathian series has long been one of my favorites, yet Dark Predator fell short for me.  I am a huge fan of Christine Feehan and her superb writing, but this book just was not one for the record books.  If it's the first time you've read a Carpathian novel, you are bound to love it because of Feehan's wonderful writing talent. I believe one of the reasons it falls short is because Feehan has set the bar so high with other works, and we just want to keep on being surprised.   We're all dying for Skyler and Dimitri's story, it is one of the most anticipated books in the series, there's even Discussion Page on Facebook  for those two (Dimitri and Skyler) .  I've become more passionate about her Jaguar series than about the Carpathian novels.  Although DP just wasn't my cup of tea,  I will continue to follow the series because it is one of my favorites and  I truly would like to know how it all eventually ends.  Take time to read the Drake Sisters series for a truly wonderful escape and the Ghostwalkers series is an action packed world, filled with cutting edge fiction.

  1. I totally agree with you Dana! I was too disappointed with this book, nothing at all about the overall storyline, and the people back in the Carpathian Mountains. And yes, Skylar and Dimitri ... bring it on please! Next one will be the spinoff of the Drake Sisters series, and I so loved the first one. Looking forward with lots of anticipation.

  2. This book made him look abusive and demeaning to his life mate I thought he was supposed to love and protect her put her happiness before his own not made her life a living hell.
    And he was defeated way to easily isn't he adipose to be the most powerful warriors?
    This book was a total disappointment


I just love hearing what you have to say. Drop me a few lines. 8-D
