Christine Feehan- Dark Prince (book 1)

He came to her in the night, a predator -- strength and power chiseled his features. The seduction was deep and elemental; he affected her soul. His need. His darkness. His terrible haunting loneliness. Her senses aroused, she craved the dangerous force of his body. Burned for him. And he had only touched her with his mind.  She came to him at dawn, his bleakest hour. As the beast raged inside him, threatening to consume him, he vented his centuries-old despair in an anguished cry that filled the waning night. And she answered, a ray of light, piercing his darkness. A beautiful angel. Her compassion, courage, and innocence awakened in him an exquisite longing and tenderness. He knew he must possess her, for only she could tame his savage side and lift the dark shadow from his soul. Apart they were desolate, bereft. Intertwined physically and spiritually, they could heal one another and experience an eternity of nights filled with love.  
My Thoughts: I'm not going to say I was impressed with this book, it was ok, I mean it kept my attention BUT it jumped around a lot. One minute the main characters are talking to each other then bam they are answering questions from each others heads. Mikhail is sitting at his desk contemplating his life and how he thinks it is time to end his life and Raven jumps into his mind telling him not to do it that he has a lot to live for, then one day later they are bonded and living together and can't be without each other for long. She is human and he is Carpathian who lives off of blood and he can shape-shift into any animal. They are both telepathic and can communicate only through their thoughts plus she is able to communicate with every other member of his family or pack of whatever they call themselves. If a Carpathian kills a human while they feed they turn into a vampire so of course you have a bad vampire in the book who goes after Raven. I just don't know what else to say about this series- I will read book two though to see if I like the series any better. My Rating: 3
