Christine Feehan one of the grand dames of the vampire novel. Just finished listening to Dark Lycan and Dark Wolf, book 1 and 2 with book 3 Dark Blood to be published in September 2014. These books are a bit of trilogy within her Carpathian series. Feehan is very good at doing intense one on one characters in her books but she can also do a much broader stroked book. You meet many of the characters from the previous 23 novels and you get to see what happened to a lot of couples, you meet their children and see the set up for the next generation. There is an underlying story arc about a hidden and not so hidden enemy that has been trying to destroy the Carpathian race since the beginning of the series, you also meet the Lycan race. Ms. Feehan is unusual as we are only now meeting the werewolves her first race besides the "vampires" were the Jaguar People.
