Book Review: Dark Tarot (Dark #31) – Christine Feehan

Rating: 4/5 ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Review:

Ever since Christine Feehan introduced the Ancients back in Dark Promises, Iโ€™ve been anticipating their stories with bated breath. Though some of the newer stories had more of an erotic tendency, she never failed with her fantastic storylines. Youโ€™d think that after 34 books in the Dark series with one of the major plot-lines concluded in book 20, Dark Slayer, sheโ€™d run out of new plots. But not so. Once again she amazes me with the start of a new storyline that brings new villains to be fought in the Carpathian world.ย 

Dark Tarot is the ancient, Sandu and his lifemate, Adalasiaโ€™s story. As an ancient Sandu has lost all hope of ever finding his lifemate until a voice reaches out to him and floods his senses with colors and emotions. Of course, life is never so easy as to just hand you your happiness on a platter. No, blood and sweat are always involved. Complication upon complication awaited. And an underlying mystery that led back to Sandu and his connection to his lifemate.ย 

I liked Adalasia so much. She was quite fierce and protective of her familyโ€™s legacy. Ah, the marvelous tarot cards! Iโ€™ve always been fascinated by tarot cards but Christine Feehan wove a whole new deck with fantastic descriptions that made them so real to me. I was amazed by Adalasiaโ€™s mastery of her magical tarot deck.

The best things about this book were the fun interactions between Adalasia and the other ancients, Sanduโ€™s ‘brothers’, seeing all my favorite characters again, and all the potential of a new storyline that brought forth new lifemates for the ancients and the unmated Carpathians that weโ€™re still hoping find their happy-ever-after and of course, evil antagonists that need to be slain. I canโ€™t wait for the new stories!

Synopsis: Sandu Berdardi continues to exist only to protect his people. An ancient Carpathian, his entire long life has been dedicated to honor above all else. He knows his time has passed, especially since he has not been able to find his lifemate โ€” the anchor to keep him sane in a world he no longer understands. But just as he truly starts to give up hope, a voice reaches out to him in the night and his world explodes into color. Adalasia enters Sandu’s mind seamlessly, as if she has been a part of him forever. While she can see the shape of things to come in her deck of cards, her gift is both a blessing and a curse. The true course of Sandu’s quest remains unclear, with danger waiting at every turn. She cannot see everything the future holds, but she does know it is a journey they will take together.
