"Geat paranormal romantic thriller"
Her childhood was a nightmare when a vampire brutally
murdered her family and converted her into a creature of
the night. Only the angelic male voice in her head kept
her alive and helped her survive the changeover. Her
adulthood is more loneliness as she goes alone killing her
own kind for Destiny is a vampire who works the night
ridding the world of this pestilence.
Ancient hunter Nicolae knows patience, but his wait for
his soul mate has become wearying as he has only connected
through the minds and not the flesh. Although he
continues to meet his centuries-old pledge to rid the
world of vampires and protect Carpathians and humans, he
waits to find his Destiny as soulmates forever. When he
does meet her, he hopes that in the Carpathian Mountains,
the Prince can heal her vampiric disease. First, he must
find her and second he must overcome her distrust of him,
but while he begins making progress, the duo falls into
the midst of a vampiric conspiracy nothing like the world
has ever seen before and never will again.
DARK DESTINY may be the best of the long running
Carpathian tales as readers obtain an action-packed
thriller intermingled with a terrific romance starring a
rarity, a female huntress. The story line never slows
down, as Nicolae knows his Destiny is his soulmate, but
will need help, something this lone ranger never wants,
for them to finally make it. The subplot involving the
vampiric conspiracy is devilishly devised so that between
this exhilarating potential world-ending calamity and the
deliciously impossible romance, the audience has Christine
Feehan's best work perhaps in the entire series.

A Carpathian Novel
They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light…
Her childhood had been a nightmare of violence and pain until she heard his voice calling out to her. Golden and seductive. The voice of an angel.
He had shown her how to survive, taught her to use her unique gifts, trained her in the ancient art of hunting the vampire. Yet he could not bend her to his will. He could not summon her to him, no matter how great his power.
As she battled centuries-old evil in a glittering labyrinth of caverns and crystals, he whispered in her mind, forging an unbreakable bond of trust and need. Only with him can she find the courage to embrace the seductive promise of her… Dark Destiny.
