Spoilers I have searched long for you, Corinne I know you have accepted your death as inevitable because the human doctors have convinced you there is no hope, but it is not going to be that way You are going to get well and spend your life with me DayanDark Melody the 12th book in the Dark series by Christine Feehan was an emotional and heartwarming read There is something so compelling about this series, something so great that even with the large number of novels it has in it never gets old or boring to me If you choose to spend your time with me and you want to care for me, knowing full well the repercussions of what can and probably will happen to me, then so be it It s your choice, Dayan She reached up and framed his face with her hands Just know that if you care too much, death can be very painful to the one left behind Corinne I dreamed you up You re my fantasy come true She laughed then, the sound like music in his ears, a melody even his guitar couldn t match Complete with baby on the way, a broken down heart, and killers stalking me I d say you need to try dreaming again, Dayan, you didn t do a very good job Dayan and Corinne Dayan was a total sweetheart He was poetic, caring, artistic, and very charming Dayan loved with his whole heart and gave himself completely I felt bad that Dayan had to deal with a lifemate that had not only been married which hurt him but that she was pregnant with another mans child Not that I held that against Corinne, cuzz I didn t, but it still hurt him Dayan embraced her and her child with love and acceptance On top of all the other things Dayan had to accept and overcome about his lifemate she was also dying of heart failure Dayan was so strong, giving Corinne everything she needed and fighting for her and the baby s life He was a very selfless and loving hero and I adored him Corinne was sweet as well Corinne was a caregiver, creative, and very responsible She always put everyone else before herself She was raised with Lisa her sister n law and John her dead husband and did everything she could to make them happy She even married John who she only loved like a friend or brother because he and lisa wanted it It made her feel like a failure as a wife that she couldn t love her husband as she should and that she didn t want intimacy Corinne was very brave She had accepted her death and enjoyed every minute she had on this earth She is very strong Such a miracle All around the world people are finding out they are having babies, yet they do not appreciate what a miracle it is Perhaps if they had no women, no babies, they would understand what is supposed to be treasured As I treasure you, so do I treasure this child Dayan I love how you look at me as if you want to take care of me, though I am the one who is the male She touched her fingertips to his perfectly chiseled mouth We can take care of each other Dayan and CorinneI felt very badly for Corinne I felt like her dead husband, John was a very selfish prick That he took advantage of Corinne s giving nature He and Lisa browbeat and forced her into a marriage she didn t want She had told him no many time and he still went after her Then he made her feel bad, getting frustrated and resentful with her because she didn t love him back Knowing she had a bad heart, and birth control made her sick Knowing that getting pregnant would kill her he decides he doesn t want to use condoms noHe was dead from the first page of the book and I still hated his damn guts Just sayin And I want to be with you I knew John practically my entire life I loved him, yet I couldn t give him passion, I couldn t give him my soul I look at you and everything in me wants you, wants to be everything you ve ever needed Corinne In the last few months before his death, John had begun to complain about using condoms The pill made Corinne sick, and so did the shot He hated everything else because it was invasive It was just the one time I knew better, but I wasn t thinking much about it at the time John had gotten impatient with her inadequacies Corinne hadn t blamed him He had wanted her to feel for him the same things he felt for her How could she explain how guilty she felt for not being sexually attracted to John in the way he needed her to be She loved John she knew she loved him She loved him dearly, but she had never wanted the physical side of their relationship as he had CorinneAnd God in heaven I wanted to slap the shit outta Lisa She is every bit as selfish as her brother John On top of that she is a huge whiny, coward She just doesn t deal with anything at all Corinne is like a mom and Lisa is like the little baby that needs shielded from anything scary, difficult or hard I couldn t stand Lisa and I feel so bad that Cullen got stuck with her baby ass I loved that Barack of all people puts her in her place when he saidBarack snorted his opinion of that It was your refusal to accept reality that initiated this crisis We could have lost both Cullen and Corinne Did you want him shot If so, you managed to accomplish it Barack Syndil hissed a reprimand What are you doing I think we should take Cullen to safety and wipe his mind clean of this childish woman She looks good, but what is that without substance Barack and Syndil Yea go Barack I loved Corinne and Dayan together They were so accepting, loving and passionate with each other And I am a total sucker when it comes to babies and children in stories There is just something so damn sexy about a man being a good father and loving towards a baby or child It just melts my heart And there are tons of swoon worthy moments in this book OMG one of my favorite moments in the whole book of course was Gregori meeting his brother and sister Darius and Desari after thinking them dead Gregori was just as awesome as ever He even cracks a joke or two I loved this book I didn t want to put it down I love the world CF has created with her amazing Carpathians If you haven t read this series you should check it out You can stay away from him Gregori pinned his brother with a steely eye How did you come to allow our sister to associate with this barbarian Darius s eyebrow shot up Yes, I was meaning to take you to task over your lack of judgment Whatever possessed you to send him to us Your lack of foresight amazes me He took advantage of the situation, as you can well see I hold you responsible Julian smirked at the brothers It was fortunate I was around to guard the women of our race while the two of you were off chasing vampires, trying to hone your skills In the end, I had no choice but to stay and guard what our race holds dear I might point out that my relationship with Desari has officially made me your brother He grinned complacently at them I had hoped you might whip him into shape, Gregori confided with a deep sigh But I see it is impossible He never obeyed a single law Gregori, Darius, and Julian

    This book was ridiculous There is no way I can write a spoiler free review so I am just tagging the entire thing view spoiler First, I think the author was in a contest to see how many times she could repeat words and phrases in the same book It was so bad Normally I hear people complain about her being repetitive, but this is the first book where it really bothered me The same phrases and words over, and over, and over and over again And over, and over and over again Yes I get he mesmer This book was ridiculous There is no way I can write a spoiler free review so I am just tagging the entire thing view spoiler First, I think the author was in a contest to see how many times she could repeat words and phrases in the same book It was so bad Normally I hear people complain about her being repetitive, but this is the first book where it really bothered me The same phrases and words over, and over, and over and over again And over, and over and over again Yes I get he mesmerizes you with his dark melodies Crippies How many times can that be said Anyway, cut the book in half and it would not have been nearly so terrible Whoever edits her books is criminal I really HATE the beloved dead ex grieving widow troupe So why I actually finished this book is beyond me If that woman twirled her wedding band onetime I was going to lose it She said she loved John the dead ex about a million times Of course she did not love him like he loved her, but whatever Plus she was preggers with his baby She has a fatal heart condition, but John did not like condoms so they did it without one and guess what she got knocked up No shit That is how babies are made you morons So Corrine, being the stupid martyr she is, decides to have the baby even though it will for sure kill her She wants Lisa to have a piece of her and John SAY WHAT But not to worry, she has a plan she is going to have John s worthless, selfish, bratty, bitchy I cannot come up with enough adjectives to describe how much I hate this bitch sister Lisa raise the kid Oh but she is not going to tell her because she will be pissed Corrine is having the kid She did after all, harass me into marrying her brother because SHE did not want anything to change they grew up on the streets together Glad to see she has always been a horrific human being So the grand plan is to have Lisa, whose head is so far up her own ass it will NEVER come out, raise her precious baby BRILLIANT I cannot describe how much I hoped Lisa would die in this story There was not one moment that she was likable She was so bad, that she made my previous most hated Carpathian, Barak, a joy to read He made her cry It made me so happy But then, in an act of total absurdity, the baby is now not John s Dayan gave the baby his blood while still in the womb so it changed her DNA and now she is part Carpathian We will not discuss how stupid a concept that is So now she is essentially Dayan s kid Shit if you were going to do that, why torture me for a million pages of loving John and John s baby, and on and on about John.Dayan the hero he was stalkertastic If I met him in a bar I would have called the police But somehow the behavior works in the book I liked him I felt so sorry for him I cannot believe what he put up with Corrine stupid as shit heroine with a martyr complex But she is not even a good martyr because she constantly risks the babies life what she is martyring herself for by doing stupid shit usually because of the impossibly moronic best friend sister in law Lisa.Poor Colin is that his name He is a trusted human friend of the Dark Troubadours, falls for Lisa because she is beautiful certainly was not her brains and is told that he can NEVER tell Lisa about the Carpathians because her mind is so fucked up she could never be trusted with the information He is like ok, no problemo I don t need honestly as a foundation of my marriage oh yea he wants to marry the bitch Total disaster waiting to happen Whew That was cathartic I waited all day to write this hoping my opinion would get better with time It did not Why two stars since I clearly hated the book Well the plot was creative for Feehan Most of the Dark series book are almost identical This one was definitely different so I give her one point for that hide spoiler

    I enjoyed it, but it isn t one of the best in this series Dayan was a sweet hero and I liked Corinne s personality She was extremely practical and didn t fight Dayan or his ways The best part of this book was the appearance of my boyfriend Gregori Of course my hunky man swooped in to save the day with his incredible healing skills I hope there isGregori in future books

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Oh, my God, why did I read this book I know why because a friend of mine loaned it to me, and it s one of her favorites I had trouble getting into it at first the writing seemed clumsy Then I hit the following sentence The leopard inched forward once again without even a whisper of movement to betray him I read it once I read it twice Nope, still didn t make any sense.I read it aloud to my partner That doesn t make any sense he said If there s no movement, how can he be inching f Oh, my God, why did I read this book I know why because a friend of mine loaned it to me, and it s one of her favorites I had trouble getting into it at first the writing seemed clumsy Then I hit the following sentence The leopard inched forward once again without even a whisper of movement to betray him I read it once I read it twice Nope, still didn t make any sense.I read it aloud to my partner That doesn t make any sense he said If there s no movement, how can he be inching forward I know I replied.I think I know what Feehan was aiming for in that sentence something to the effect of The leopard inched forward again, so subtly his movements did not betray him But instead, she came through with that little gem And it s only one of many in this book.Feehan also seems to have a thing for making her characters act unbelievably as in, I cannot believe it stupid in order to move the plot along Hey I have a fatal heart condition that will be made worse by sudden shocks, or even walking, and there are killers that are after me staked out at my house But I need underwear And I m not willing to let my new romantic partner even though he is strong and also apparently a skilled killer get them, because I would feel wrong about him literally going into my drawers, even though he s already pretty much got into them in the figurative sense Really REALLY Can t you, I don t know, go to Target to get some underwear instead of back to the house where KILLERS are waiting to SHOOT YOU DEAD Our heroine, Corinne, has a plot dependent heart condition At the beginning of the story, she s at a nightclub, and no one really knows how bad her heart is Two days later, Corinne s on the VERGE of DEATH.And the pregnancy Don t get me started on the pregnancy Corinne says at the beginning that she s about six months along The whole plot hinges on the fact that the baby has no chance of survival outside her womb But at 25 weeks, a baby has an 80% chance of survival Say Corinne s six and a half months along which from all clues seems pretty likely , and the baby s chance of survival is 90% THIS IS NOT THE DARK AGES, PEOPLE And another thing about the pregnancy She was pregnant by her dead husband John who Feehan writes as a jerk, which in and of itself I have a problem with, because fine, One True Love and all, but couldn t he have been a nice guy who just wasn t The One Why do all exes even the dead ones have to be evil But I digress We find out later in the book that Dayan, by feeding Corinne his blood in order to save her life, is OVERWRITING THE DNA OF THE FETUS Yes, yes, he is RETROACTIVELY wiping out Corinne s dead husband s existence No trace will remain of him, INCLUDING in the baby that is the ONLY legacy he has left.And AND One of the human characters is too mentally fragile to ever know of the existence of Carpathians So what do they do MAKE HER PART OF THE ENTOURAGE OF THE CARPATHIAN BAND Because THAT S gonna end well.I really like my friend, and when I sent her a somewhat pained email about this book she said, Oh, I m so glad you liked it I haveto lend you I do not want to hurt her feelings, but I don t know how manyof these I can take

    Featuring Dayan, member of the Dark Troubadours with Desari, Barack and Syndil , Dark Melody began very promisingly and quickly disappointed Dayan is a great character, tall dark and brooding to a fault, with that perfect blend of poet and bad boy truly a classic archetype how could Feehan screw this one up Even Corinne, damsel in distress, is one of the better heroines her husband has been murdered, leaving her six months pregnant her heart is weak and the baby will kill her even witho Featuring Dayan, member of the Dark Troubadours with Desari, Barack and Syndil , Dark Melody began very promisingly and quickly disappointed Dayan is a great character, tall dark and brooding to a fault, with that perfect blend of poet and bad boy truly a classic archetype how could Feehan screw this one up Even Corinne, damsel in distress, is one of the better heroines her husband has been murdered, leaving her six months pregnant her heart is weak and the baby will kill her even without the baby she doesn t have long to live she s also a musician, a songwriter, and has a very level head she only nibbled her lip once.They had the perfect problem to create sexual tension and prevent them from getting it on until the end her weak heart , but that s most of the problem right there Feehan just can t create a compelling, exciting story to keep us interested until they can finally get it on , and when they do finally get it on , it s pretty tame and boring And quick yawn What we have in Dark Melody is over 300 pages of Dayan worrying about Corinne s heart, protecting her from the people who killed her husband, and trying to save her life Could ve worked, handled by a better writer I kept wanting to shout at him If you re worried about her heart, why the hell are you drinking her blood Grrrr.One of Feehan s biggest problems as a writer is the constant use of the comma splice What she needs is a good editor who knows and understands basic grammar, because the comma splice is really driving me nuts Add that to the repetitiveness, to the weak character development, the plot holes, and all the other flaws, and the best I can give this is 2 stars A shame, a real shame, especially since it started so promisingly

    Dark Melody is the story of Dayan and Corinne.After centuries of searching, Dayan the male singer of Dark Troubadours finds his soulmate in Corinne. who is 6 months pregnant, sick and running away from hunters with her friend Lisa.I absolutely adored this book We know The Carpathians are utterly devoted alpha males but Dayan was just another level of awesomeness Him caring for her and the baby, never judging anything and claiming both, fighting for her life and never overpowering her mind Dark Melody is the story of Dayan and Corinne.After centuries of searching, Dayan the male singer of Dark Troubadours finds his soulmate in Corinne. who is 6 months pregnant, sick and running away from hunters with her friend Lisa.I absolutely adored this book We know The Carpathians are utterly devoted alpha males but Dayan was just another level of awesomeness Him caring for her and the baby, never judging anything and claiming both, fighting for her life and never overpowering her mind totally made me respect himthan many of the other heroes.We have a reunion of sorts of multiple couples from the previous books as everyone bands together to save the mother and child, as well as a new pair in Lisa and Cullen but the highlight of the book remains the sweet blooming love and chemistry between the main leads.I loved that Dayan waited, but even though she had surgery coupling so soon after birth had me a little weirded out However the scene of her finally enjoying life and them together were pretty damn sweet One of my favorites of the series so far.Safe4.5 5

    My keyboard s comma key is broken that s why there are no commas in this review Also this book is probably not quite as bad as my review will paint it but I only just finished it and the anger hasn t worn off yet.Maybe this book deserves 2 stars rather than one but I am just so sick of Feehan s Carpathians series The books are just unforgivably similar I keep reading them because I like the setup and every once in a while am in the mood to read something incredibly stupid With Feehan you pre My keyboard s comma key is broken that s why there are no commas in this review Also this book is probably not quite as bad as my review will paint it but I only just finished it and the anger hasn t worn off yet.Maybe this book deserves 2 stars rather than one but I am just so sick of Feehan s Carpathians series The books are just unforgivably similar I keep reading them because I like the setup and every once in a while am in the mood to read something incredibly stupid With Feehan you pretty much always know what you re getting into when you start one of her books since they re all the same so it fit what I thought I was in the mood for.Dayan is the only remaining member of the Carpathian musical group who hasn t yet found his lifemate He finds her in a bar during a casual gig Her name is Corinne She has a terminal heart condition and not much time left In addition she s 6 months pregnant Her husband John died recently Both she and John are were psychics she is telekinetic He was killed by the same society that is hunting vampires Carpathians Blablabla All Feehan novels are the same Dayan sees her oh she s sooo good and beautiful and she s his other half and she finds him so attractive and it s like they ve known each other forever.To a certain extent I did enjoy it The writing is just unbelievably bad I think Feehan keeps hammering us with metaphors between Dayan and a well oiled machine and a jungle cat Every time Dayan picks Corinne up he holds her like she weighed nothan a child OK we get it Also throughout the book Dayanor less bullies Corinne because he cares so much for her safety but when she s finally dying after giving birth he decides to let her go because that s what she wants and he wants to resepct her decision Can t Feehan at least be a little consistent But no she puts the melodrama above everything else

    First, the heroine had been with someone else before meeting her true lifemate What s up with that Elen previous books of virgins and Feehan sticks a pregnant woman in the mix No way That was a turn off and than Corrine was a professional whinner, a Raven Savanna clone who got on my nerves It tooks months literally months for me to finish this one Even the appearance of Gregori etc towards the end could not salvage this story for me Corrine destroyed this story And yes I know First, the heroine had been with someone else before meeting her true lifemate What s up with that Elen previous books of virgins and Feehan sticks a pregnant woman in the mix No way That was a turn off and than Corrine was a professional whinner, a Raven Savanna clone who got on my nerves It tooks months literally months for me to finish this one Even the appearance of Gregori etc towards the end could not salvage this story for me Corrine destroyed this story And yes I know that the baby is important to future stories but I don t care Dayan was short changed Another reason I didliked this book and it had nothing to do with the writing is because prior to reading it I watched Feehan s trailer for it on her site BIG MISTAKE Therefore I avoid her book trailers I made the mistake and watched the trailer for Dark Possesion but thankfully I was able to get the characters out of my mind before the book was actually released I still get the shivers visualizing Dayan and Corrine

    SELF NOTE I decided not to read it for the reason heroine is pregnant with other man I know it sounds strangebut if the child was older like 2 or 3 years, that would be better the same goes for the Heroes child..but her being still pregnant is just not romantic but uncomfortable for me

    3.5 5.0In this installment of the Carpathian series, Feehan takes a turn from the formula Instead of running, fighting and chasing vampires while searching for lifemates, we settle down some Dayan a favorite yummy treat finds his lifemate in Corrine but immediately realizes there is a problem She has a defective heart and will not live long Now anyone reading this series might think, what s the problem The Carpathians can heal her Well, not so fast she is also pregnant and Dayan can 3.5 5.0In this installment of the Carpathian series, Feehan takes a turn from the formula Instead of running, fighting and chasing vampires while searching for lifemates, we settle down some Dayan a favorite yummy treat finds his lifemate in Corrine but immediately realizes there is a problem She has a defective heart and will not live long Now anyone reading this series might think, what s the problem The Carpathians can heal her Well, not so fast she is also pregnant and Dayan cannot mate with her or heal her because his blood will kill the baby Hmmmm, nice twist in a series that, while at times can be horribly wordy and sometimes redundant, still keeps ones attention
