The whole book I knew Lucian would have to be destroyed and that this responsibility had fallen to his brother, Gabriel, to do. There is always the hope of lifemates to heal the sorrow and build a new life together. We also meet Skylar, a fourteen-year-old abused, human child, whom Francesca and Gabriel adopt into their home. Francesca heals the abuse but doesn't remove Skylar's memories. We have the usual human servant and vampires to fight and destroy, but the most heartbreaking of all is the ensuring battle to play out between the two brothers.
This is definitely a novel to delve into for its emotional impact on each reader. I have a secret……. If I start reading the first book in a series I have to read them all……what a luck that my friend gave me the first 12 or 13 books in the Dark Series…. I had to know more about these amazing characters……. With each new book, I discover new exciting, interesting characters……. Gabriel had injured Lucian who had turned to the other side…i. Thousands of years later, Gabriel is awakened from their burial place in a Paris cemetery and knows he has to find his brother before he goes on a killing spree.
He discovers a different world from the one he knew and whilst looking for someone to feed his hunger, meets Francesca del Ponce, a beautiful, talented healer has dedicated her life to helping the sick and poor living in the streets. Francesca is the first Carpathian woman in the series has turned away from her people and home hundreds of years ago when she was rejected by Gabriel, who she recognized as her lifemate.
She had made a new life and ensuring that neither Carpathian or vampire would find her. Recognizing her as his lifemate he is determined to do everything in his power for her to give him another chance. Francesca struggles with the feeling she has for Gabriel and how can she ever forgive him? Gabriel is tormented by the love he feels for his brother and the anguish of having to kill him. We are taken to a magical world filled with characters we know and introduced to new ones.
Skyler, who becomes the ward of Gabriel and Francesca, breaks your heart…. Will Gabriel have to kill his own brother? This is a touchingly romantic book filled with passion, love, anguish, pain, sexy, erotic and belief in the people you love. I had taken a break from this series there are soooo many of them.
Someone made a comment on another review and mentioned that I should go back and read this one I skipped a few. I'm glad I did.
This was definitely one of the better entries in the series. These books get repetitive. It's not that I don't like the plot or premise, but I find I get a bit burnt out when I read them back to back.
This is the story of Gabriel, one of the infamous and legendary twins that are talked about in the pr I had taken a break from this series there are soooo many of them. This is the story of Gabriel, one of the infamous and legendary twins that are talked about in the previous books. In Carpathian legend, they were great warriors who fought for centuries to protect their homeland and to hunt the undead.
Everyone assumes they are dead as they haven't been seen in centuries. According to legend, the brothers had a pact that if one turned vampire the other would hunt him down. Lucien was said to have turned and Gabriel hunted him down. It was believed they both destroyed one another in a great battle, but no one knows for sure. Actually they did not destroy one another, but had been sleeping under a Paris cemetery for hundreds of years after Gabriel bound Lucien during a battle.
Progress, in the form of moving the graves to make way for modern day buildings, woke them both. The first person Gabriel meets in his weakened state is his life mate Francesca. She is also an ancient and has managed to very skillfully hide herself from Carpathians and vampires alike while living almost as a human.
She's an ancient herself and has been on her own a long time, so is reluctant to give up the life she built for herself - the basic hallmark of the series.
Independent woman meets overbearing Carpathian male and spends the book smexing it up and then flip-flopping on whether or not she can be with him. In this instance the flip-flop didn't drag on as long. I loved this heroine, she was strong but she also knew what Carpathian men were about and didn't allow them to intimidate her the way a human woman is often intimidated and overwhelmed by them.
She also has a sense of humor about it this being her own species and takes all their posturing with a grain of salt. Gabriel is more reasonable and less overbearing than some of the males, but he definitely has his moments.
Dark Legend (Dark, #7) by Christine Feehan
At his age, I'd have expected him to be far worse than many of the others. Maybe age mellows them out, relatively speaking. Anyway, the big mystery of the book was fairly obvious to me, but it didn't make it less enjoyable. Sep 06, Kazza rated it liked it Shelves: I have a guilty secret well not so secret it's these darn Carpathian books.
Truly they aren't really my style but bloody hell I still read them because there is something about the men that I just like and some of the women too. This book though I personally found a tough read, she was so good, he was so good, no he was so good, no she was Christine Feehan is to be thanked for today's PNR UF books but boy can she waffle sometimes and this book was a waffler and a half.
The I have a guilty secret well not so secret it's these darn Carpathian books.
The best thing about Dark Legend was the relationship between the twins, Gabriel and Lucian, it must be nice to feel so close to a sibling and be able to maintain that care and bond you have for and with them.
There is so much promise for this series and yet Ms Feehan just falls short on capitilizing on people and situations because she just seems to cover the same ground over and over. I would like to know what happens to Skyler much like I would like to know what happens with Alexandria's brother from Dark Gold and Gary from Dark Magic.
Some of these books have been really good and others just don't quite live up to what they should, this is one of the latter.
I will stick with them and hope the writing gets less flowery and the characters have more done with them as they progress. I was extremely surprised of how much I adored this book. I was frustrated when I realized it would be once more about new characters and not the ones we already know and love.
Although I was certain I would have a great time with it as the previous installment already got us introduced to this respected and feared fighter. Gabriel was one of my favorites so far. And I adored his mate. While she annoyed me at the beginning, she grew on me fast.
In this installment we get to read about a couple c I was extremely surprised of how much I adored this book. In this installment we get to read about a couple composed of two carpathian, which IMHO always make things easier and the pace of the read faster and more entertaining. Everything developed smoothly, in a way that I could not stop reading the damn book. I was done with in less than 8 hours.

I can't help but adore this series and get more into it with every book. I just can't believe I did not started it sooner. Feb 13, Cristina rated it liked it. Mar 24, iamGamz rated it really liked it Shelves: I love Gabriel. And Francesca. The opening of the book had me questioning her sanity when she picked up a desiccated Gabriel, put him in her car and started him driving him around.
I thought she was human and was gonna get nommed. But Gabriel recognized the goodness in her, and even at his most desperate, refused to injure her. Then I met Skylar. I wanted extreme pain and torture for the monster who called himself her fa I wanted extreme pain and torture for the monster who called himself her father. And I wanted it to last for-freakin-ever!
At one point I thought I would be able to step away from this series and read a couple other books. CF has me hooked. I peeked ahead and know that Syklar gets a book too, but I have to wait for quite a while. I hope there are teasers though. As always, the concept for this series thrills me. I'm drawn to it and I love how it feels so authentic and real. I've always thought of it as a sort of soulmate sort of thing.
This book yay, yay, yaaay So this is the first Dark Sage book I've written a review for, so that alone speaks volumes. This book has a different vibe from the others, I think a lot of it is due to Gabriel. He is incredibly tender and sweet and protective towards Francesca in a way that is a little unusual for the usually heavily domineering Carpathian males.
I also loved the connection between Gabriel and his twin Lucian, and the struggle he had to go through. You get a great sense of how strong there brotherly love is. Despite centuries of fighting and battling each other, They meet again in Paris, destined for one to destroy the other. The setting, unlike the Carpathian Mt's, was Paris- a fitting city of love and romance.
Gabriel Gabriel was undeniably a cutie pie and one of the main reasons why I adored this book so much. He was so patient and loving and extremely kind. He felt such guilt over leaving Francesca centuries ago but really it was all a misunderstanding. I mean what Carpathian male would leave his lifemate willingly?
He was just the perfect hero to be honest and he was so honourable and lived up to the legend and then some. Francesca Francesca is the heroine that is typically Feehan. Very disney but sweet all the same. I really loved and respected her.
She had a heart of gold and I thought they were brilliantly matched. She was resourceful, bright and compassionate and I couldn't help but like her. She was soft and loving yet also assertive and she really gained my respect. I also found that her leaving her home was a bold and courageous move and even then she was totally selfless. Also known as the guy who can't leave Francesca alone and is completely infatuated and obsessed. He was just annoying and irrelevant and to be honest, just made Gabriel look all the better and more patient.
He was a pain but then that's to be expected I suppose. There is also the introduction of Skyler the name. I know. She becomes an orphan as her abusive father dies near the beginning of the story. I wonder if Gabriel has something to do with it hehe.
Anyway, Gabriel and Francesca take her under their wings. She has psychic abilities and is a young teenager who is incredibly sweet. Initially, I wasn't sure I wanted her to be part of their family because they'd have to split their attention.
I won't lie, I'd like their attention to be on each other, I like the one on one romance, just feels more intense. However, fear not if you harbour the same fears because the intro of Skyler is welcomed and personally, I warmed to her quickly.
Overall, this was a sweet and fulfilling read. S Apologies for all the'Supernatural' spam Oct 08, Shannon Giraffe Days rated it really liked it Shelves: Gabriel and his twin, Lucian, are legendary hunters among the Carpathians. They have been destroying vampires and defeating human armies for two millennia, but for the past hundred years no one has seen or heard of them.
Word is that Lucian turned vampire and his brother hunted and fought him across the globe. Now after a century of sleeping beneath a Parisian cemetery, construction crews have woken them to a new world, new technology but the same age-old battle. Gabriel wakes hungry, his body li Gabriel and his twin, Lucian, are legendary hunters among the Carpathians.
Gabriel wakes hungry, his body like an old man's, and is taken in by a woman with a soothing voice, a calming touch and a penchant for helping the helpless and homeless. He drinks from her and recognises her as his lifemate, but a bigger surprise is in store for him: Francesca is also Carpathian, knew Gabriel was her lifemate ever since she was a child centuries ago and had seen him and his twin stride through her village, and had spent the centuries since pretending to be human, even altering her chemistry so she can walk in the sun.
Francesca has a life, a beautiful home in Paris, friends and contacts in high places, a possible human husband in her friend and doctor, Brice, and work to do, but her loneliness had led her to decide to take her life. Gabriel will do anything to stop her and woo her. Francesca knows he cannot stop battling Lucian, who is now somewhere in Paris plotting his intricate game, and now her revealed presence in the city has drawn other vampires to the area.
Like Dark Gold , this has one of the more original storylines and characters, which made it one of the better books. Gabriel is gentle, adorable, considerate and less patronising than many of the other Carpathian males. It helps that Francesca is an Ancient in her own right, resourceful, a powerful healer and very strong-minded and independent.
Usually though their lifemates just take over. Here, Gabriel fits into her life, rather than the other way around. It does annoy me that, in general, almost all Feehan's human characters are American - the women they claim as lifemates all seem to be American, if they aren't Carpathian already, and the supporting characters too.
Here, in the heart of Paris, we go no Parisian characters at all. Brice is English. The patients Francesca helps at the hospital with her healing gift are American girls. With awful names like "Skyler" - I just think that Feehan's heroines should be a little more culturally diverse. How unlikely is it that these men's lifemates all turn out to be American? It's obviously Feehan's comfort zone, since even within Paris she avoids anyone who may be too alien - is it just me who finds that a real worry?
Regardless, this is one of the better Carpathian novels I've read, though too heavily invested in the subplots which make Francesca and Gabriel's love life read: It's just as repetitive and flaky as the other books, but far less irritating because the main characters are more natural and unique. The prose was less flawed but no one will ever say Feehan is a particularly talented writer.
I'm sorry I know that's harsh but it's true. Hasn't stopped me reading the damn books yet though has it?! View all 4 comments. I really liked both Gabriel and Francesca and their story was very engaging. Francesca is a Carpathian woman that's a strong healer. She has been alive for a long time and once, she saw a Carpathian male she was sure was her lifemate. Unfortunately, he didn't recognize her as such and left to go fight vampires.
Francesca decided to go live her life on her own and ended up living mostly like a human to escape the notice of Carpathians o 4. Francesca decided to go live her life on her own and ended up living mostly like a human to escape the notice of Carpathians or vampires.
Gabriel is an ancient Carpathian male; Carpathians are born vampires with abilities like shape shifting to any form, even mist , magic spells and psychic powers. The males of the Carpathians have a darkness in them and if they don't find their lifemates, they can lose their souls and become evil. Gabriel and his twin, Lucian, hunted vampires for centuries together but when Lucian appeared to have turned vampire, Gabriel was forced to hunt him to try to kill him.
He was unsuccessful but did manage to trap both himself and Lucian in a long sleep in an attempt to keep Lucian from wreaking havoc with his evil deeds. Gabriel wakes up from his long sleep because the graveyard where he went to his long sleep is being moved.
He realizes that Lucian woke when he did and Gabriel is determined to gain his strength so he can find and fight Lucian again. Pretty much as soon as he leaves the cemetery, Gabriel runs into a woman, Francesca, and instead of tearing her throat out because of his desperate hunger, he finds that she soothes his hunger.
Gabriel is so malnourished that he looks like a gaunt old man and Francesca tried to help him. She ends up taking him back to her place and when that happens, she realizes who he really is and he finds out she's a Carpathian. There's definitely some confusion about how she came to be living alone and all that. Gabriel is shocked to find out that she's his lifemate and he unwittingly left her behind years ago without realizing it. Francesca had already decided to live life as a human and let herself die like a human and when Gabriel shows up, she's not real anxious to change her plans.
Thankfully, those plans don't last too terribly long and then Gabriel and Francesca have to work on getting to know each other and coming together in a relationship.
There are some additional issues, Lucian is a big one of course but there are also other issues. Gabriel and Francesca get through their issues and end the story starting a well deserved HEA together.
This was a really enjoyable story. I really liked Francesca, especially once she got past her "life plan" that she had before Gabriel came into the picture. Gabriel was a great hero, I had no complaints about him. I also really liked Skyler as a secondary character.
I can't wait to read her book. Overall, the story was very good and kept me interested throughout.
I'd recommend this story. She did a very good job. Oct 28, T. Historical Horror Humorous Mystery Romance. Home Dark Legend. Read Dark Legend online free.
