Publisher's Summary

In an explosive novel from number one New York Times best-selling author Christine Feehan, a human woman ignites the desire of her Carpathian lifemate - and of an ancient vampire with a score to settle. 

After the devastating loss of her entire family, Lorraine Peters heads to the woods searching for peace of mind and anything to quell the anger in her soul. Instead, she stumbles upon a scene of horrific violence, as one man lies helpless in the face of three attackers. 

Andor Katona's existence has been a harsh one, living for centuries as a monk in the Carpathian Mountains. Unable to find his lifemate, he almost welcomes his release from a colorless and unfeeling world at the hands of the vampire hunters who have mistaken him for their prey. That is, until a whirling ball of fury bursts onto the scene, determined to save him. 

In one glimpse, in one breath, Andor recognizes Lorraine as his lifemate, but it will take more than their telepathic connection to convince her of their immortal bond. Lorraine is a lethal combination of cunning and courage. So much so that she captures the attention of a master vampire, one who has already lost what was once irreplaceable to him. One who will strike with deadly precision at Andor and his ancient Carpathian comrades in a war to end all wars.

SHE IS BACK!!!

I have not enjoyed the last 4 or 5 books because they were more about sex, I don’t mind a good sex scene every now and then but not the majority of the book. This book or more like the original writing I enjoyed from the beginning. Thank you Thank you for writing the way I grew to love and enjoy!

NARRATOR JIM FARGIONE WAS BORING LACK LUSTER!!

I had mixed feeling about Dark Sentinel. I had to read it twice to figure out why it was not holding my attention. I listened on audible book and then I went back and read my HB book. I couldn't make up my mind if its a 3 star story or a 4 star. So I gave it the benefit of the doubt and gave it 4 stars.
BORING NARRATION!!

Lorraine Peters is one of the best written lifemates I have read in awhile. She is a martial arts instructor. Her family worked as martial arts instructors. Then one day her once loving brother goes off the rails and kills her entire family. I like that Christine Feehan use her Martial Arts training and experience, which is a part of herself to create Lorraine. I believe CF is a Black Belt. Lorraine is intelligent witty and very brave. She reminded me a bit of Natalya from Dark Demon and her flaming hair spray canisters she used to kill vampire. Lorraine used Wasp Spray and Alcohol mix to kill vampires. Lorraine was quick and she didn't hover or back down. I just loved her. She was a perfectly written heroine. Can't say as much for Andor. He's a bit boring. He is the same old same old Carpathian male. He was a bit more modern thinking then a lot of Ancients. He just wasn't impressive enough for me. These ancients from the monastery keep getting outsmarted by Sergey. Who is quite impressive. I hated that Vadim is still alive or is he Sergey's slave? That's a mystery there and I don't know when we will find out whats really going on with the two Malinov brothers. I just know Sergey was more impressive then The Ancients in the story.

The storyline needed some excitement. Something like Emeline having the baby or Trixie, Fane Andre and Teagan arriving from the monastery. The storyline just did Not move forward. Not one bit. The ending surprising twist was a bit disappointing as well, because it ends on a Cliffhanger and I don't like Cliffhangers. I loved hearing about Aiden Savage, Alexandra and Joshua. I hope we get to read how they make out in the future with there life changes. I can't say what those are you have to read the story.


So I guess people who read this review will ask why 4 star instead of 3. Well because the first part of the story is very good and most of the ending is very good. The middle needs some fun excitement. But Overall I like this story a lot.

She's back

This story is back to what she is born to write. There is more story and less sex. The love story is there but the battles and intrigue are dominant. This one put me in mind of the first 22 Dark stories. I loved it. The only thing I hate is that she has joined the cliffhanger crew. That is a bad crew to be a part of.

Started out well, but then dragged out

This book started out well, but then seemed to drag on and on.
I may be wrong, but it seemed to me that what was said in one hour could have been said in 10 minutes.
Eventually I just skipped whole sections as it never seemed to get to the point.

I will not buy another Carpathian Novel book

the best ever

In my very humble opinion, this has got to be the best book in the Dark series to come along in a while. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, The main characters, Andor and Lorraine, are now my favorite couple. This book has the battle scenes I so enjoy and the story's pace is action packed. A lot of info and back story is shared. Lorraine is proving to be one of the best lifemates ever discovered. She doesn't have the whinyness of the lifemates of earlier books and Andor gets kudos for placing all the cards on the table and explaining to his lifemate just what she is in store for. The ancient warriors of the monastery are proving to be the best of the bunch. I look forward to all of them finding their lifemates. We see everyone's favorite Gary, coming to the forefront as second in command under Tariq and we see the great power and knowledge he has garnered. This book has a lot going on in it and sets the scene for future books. Dark Sentinel will probably be my all time favorite book unless Ms. Feehan knocks another one out of the park. I enjoyed every word of this book.

New story

Loved the beginning of this book. Loved all the funny parts and the general story but felt it dragged out. Repeating and linking the other stories together was great but in such detail was unnecessary If you follow the series. Still I love the dark sentinel and look forward to the next one and hope to see more appearances from other stories reappear and the characters become family.

Better than I expected.

The Good:
Brought in Carpathians from other books. {including Gary}
Strong enemy with a new twist
Strong and likable female.
The not so Good:
The reader has a good voice; however, no change in tone between male or females. Made it harder to follow everyone.
Christine spent a little more time developing her story this time. Welcome back!
It was worth the credit.

It was entertaining but ...

The heroine was very smart, strong and likable. Unfortunately, she & her, kind of bland, life mate were also very horny and went at it a lot, to the detriment of the story's pacing, in my opinion. I would have preferred more progression of the story or character development in place of the sex scenes in a few places while reading. I even found my self thinking, "Really? They're going to go at it now." and "Not again." at the timing of some of the sex scenes.
That said, the introduction of these new more cunning vampires in America and their new minions breathes new life into the series. The introduction of the possible couple of the next book also totally peeked my interest as well.

Other half love - soul

All story’s Christine wrote so far are the deepest truth about the modern named twin flame connection .
When a God Spark leaves the source it will split in two in lower dimensions . A awaken human knows by heart that there is only one counter sex as a life partner or twin flame . Like a atom it’s -+ electro magnetic fields .
In the time we are in twin flames - life mates who’s destiny is to come together will come together . It’s all true like it’s written in Christine’s story’s .The feeding I interpret as by blood we have our absolute other half . Brillant build truth in all this story’s. The once who are here to bond with there life mate will hear each worth of truth in all story’s and a inner recognizing will start a deeper awakening Effekt to the whole truth . It’s not to stop and it’s not meant to be to be stoped . When my worths touch you than this info is for you .
Thank you Christine for writing ancient truth blendet into modern story’s . The truth is what I see this books are all about . A waking up spreading like wildfire for the once who it’s meant to 🙏🏻

Disappointing

Struggled to finish. Nothing really happens until 3/4 if the book, then we have some sex, conversion and action to round off.

Another great story

I love this series
And I’ve loved getting to know the ancients.
The story is taking a few new twists and turns. And all the while the author keeps it fresh. Andor was just about to choose to go to the afterlife when his life mate marches in and saves him (literally) colour and feelings are returned full force.
Lorraine is seeking enlightenment, but what she finds is 3 guys about to kill another. And after fighting them off, she cares for the stranger, not knowing why, but feeling a pressing need to care for him.
The story progresses at a good rate, lots of action and battles.
A few twists and turns. All the things we come to love in these stories.

Excellwnt

An excellent audiobook to listen to. I just loved the story Christine has done a wonderful job and I'm really looking forward to her others coming out in this series. I have to say I just loved the narrator he once again did a stella job. He is really great at his job and really does credit to Christine Feehans books
