Dark Magic by Christine Feehan (Carpathians #4)

2 out of 5 stars

I think i have officially lost my patience with this author.

Everything about this series is hopelessly repetitive. From the plot (Uber-Alpha male finds his lifemate. The chosen woman always whines about being bossed around initially, but that aspect is usually quickly forgotten. Someone threatens the couple's happiness/safety. Again, that is usually quickly and far too easily resolved. Lifemates have their HEA)...the phrasing, and in the case of this book, Dark Magic, even the actual dialogue, and descriptions of the two main characters are used again and again. Basiclly Feehan is recycling the exact same story over and over again, and simply changing the names, the woman's hair color (all of the females are described as beyond beautiful, with a tiny waist, narrow ribcage, and large breasts), and a few other small details.

The ONLY reason i'm giving this 2 stars instead of 1, is the fact that i ended up liking Gregori more than the previous two male leads, Jacques and Aidan.

I have returned to this series numerous times over the last few months...hoping that maybe, just maybe the next installment might capture me the way the first book, Dark Prince did. I wasn't even able to finish this book, i was so frustrated. And i hardly ever give up on a novel.
