    Ten Shining Stars!Dark Sentinel is the 28th book in the Carpathian mythology and what a spectacular addition this novel is. Andor Katona and Lorraine are such an amazing couple who compliment and lend strength to each other.The heroine, Lorraine Peters, was incredible. After the tragic loss of her entire family and the rejection form all around her following her brother's terrible crime. Lorraine has sort of gone of the grid and spends most of he...

    I love the ancients! Andor has fought vampires for centuries, a warrior with honor. After he is attacked and left dying, in his final moments, a woman comes to help him and his world is filled with color. His lifemate, Lorraine will do anything to save him, include battle death itself. This couple is very romantic and they're paired perfectly. I love when it's obvious that they belong together and then you get excited watching how that relationsh...

    Yes! Some authors CAN keep a long running series alive and entertaining! Christine Feehan’s DARK SENTINEL opens amid the aftermath of a bloody battle between an ancient Carpathian and a band of vampires. Andor was near death, weak and vulnerable is now at the mercy of vampire hunters until from nowhere, like an avenging angel came his fated lifemate. Would his last moments on earth finally be filled with color? Lorraine forgets all of her anger...

    I absolutely loved Dark Sentinel! Even though there were a lot of characters, I felt that the main two were really able to shine. There was also a lot of building up to the "action". Andor and Lorraine were able to build their relationship even while facing an onslaught of threats.I've been a little "eh" about the last couple of books, but this one felt like one of the earlier books. Received a copy for an honest review.

    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. 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 i...

    I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 4 Stars. As the 28th installment of the Dark series, can Dark Sentinel be read as a standalone? Yes. Almost a decade ago, I bought the Anniversary Edition hardcover of Dark Prince and haven't read more in the series since. Thankfully I remembered bits and pieces of the world-building, enough so that I wasn't confused. But to be honest, I don't believe anyone would struggle if the...

    4.5 Love Love Love Lorraine. Intelligent, feisty, human, passionate, sensitive - in short awesome. I appreciate the Carpathians are coming into the 21st century. Not talking electronics, etc. although that is appreciated. I love that some of the men aren't all alpha wolf. Alpha, yes, but with a little more leeway in the relationship. The cherry on top for me, is the sex wasn't just thrown in every chapter or every two chapters. In my opinion it w...
  • Handcrafted Librarian
    So I'm not surprised that Christine Feehan is still writing this series since it is really easy to add some mysterious unknown cluster of Carpathians, but I am surprised that she still has the ability to give each story enough uniqueness that they are worth reading. Dark Sentinel is the 28th book in the series, and I'll be honest that the beginning was so similar to previous novel that I had to check multiple times to see if I'd read this one alr...
  • Heather andrews
    I liked that Andor had morals, “I would ordinarily, since it is your blood, the blood of the woman who is mine, take it differently , but since I cannot, this will have to do.” I loved when Andor was playful, "his eyebrow arched instantly. “Goof? What is good? And of course, it was a compliment. I may be Carpathian, but I am a man.” Andor's amusement is not shared at times, “are you looking at something in particular?” she demanded, h...

    In Book #28 of this long running Dark series, Lorraine Peters had gone camping on a personal retreat trying to find some peace of mind. She lost all of her family in a horrifying tragedy and so all she knew and loved was taken away. Andor Katona is just about at the end of his rope after having survived centuries as a warrior monk for his people, the Carpathians. Mortally wounded, he expects to die never having found his lifemate whom he believes...

  • Teresa (Reads_Romance)
    I’m elated that Ms. Feehan finally gave me everything I asked for in a novel! I wanted a Carpathian ancient and a modern woman to figure out their love for each other without the woman making all the concessions. That was exactly what happened with Andor and Lorraine in Dark Sentinel.Let me just say, I flipping loved Lorraine. She was fierce, compassionate, and occasionally hilarious. The perfect foil to Andor. In the first scene, she fights of...
  • Eva Millien
    The newest book in the world of the Carpathian is a spectacular read full of electrifying suspense, volatile action and carnal passion. Andor and Lorraine are two solid, enthralling characters that easily draw you into their story but it’s their exciting relationship that keeps readers glued to the pages from the very beginning. The relationship is a bit rocky because of the situation and their differences which causes some emotional turmoil, b...
  • Adaiah
    My review of Dark Sentiinel by Christine FeehanI enjoyed the unusual courtship, and romance between Andor, and Lorraine. Lorraine has been through so much in her young life. She’s lost her parents in death at her brother’s hand. What suffering she had to experience. Lorraine slowly made her choice in becoming Carpathian, and Andor adapted, and didn’t pressure Lorraine in any way. I loved the unique way Andor was saved, with the assistance o...

    Lorraine lost everyone she knows, her family is dead and everyone she knew shunned her because of her brother. Lorraine just wants to be left alone to clear her head when she sees someone impaling a man with a stake so she defended him and in turn is thrown into a world she thought was pretend. When Andor comes to and realizes his life mate has just defended him and having thought he would never find her, he is confused and mortally wounded but s...
  • The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)
    Dark Sentinel continues the Carpathian series. Its like book 900 or something. Okay, thats an exaggeration, but seriously this is a LONG series. I haven't read them all. But, it wasn't a problem to read Dark Sentinel without knowing the details of the previous 9000 books.Andor is a very old Carpathian who has all but given up on the hope he will find his lifemate. As he contemplates just letting himself die after being attacked by inept 'vampire ...

    I loved this couple! They did have some struggles with old fashioned guy, modern girl, but they worked through them, and there were some really amazing moments! Hilarious, and I can't wait for the next book!

Now lying with several fatal injuries, he is contemplating ending his life.Lorraine Peters had gone to the mountains in an effort to heal from the traumatic events of losing her family when she comes across a man being murdered.

  • Maureen Gianinio
    Absolutely love this book! The story of Andor and Lorraine is woven beautifully among the continuing tale of the Carpathian ancients and their war with the Malinov Vampire army. Andor debates allowing mortal wounds to end his life, allow human hunters finish what a battle with vampires had begun and end his dark existence. Lorraine searches for ways to heal the pain of loss, of senseless death that took all she loved and continue life. Discoverin...
  • Suzanne
    I'm giving this four stars simply for Lorraine's entrance to the series. It was an absolute hoot! Possibly one of my favourite scenes ever!I liked Ander and Lorraine's relationship and how he was injured for quite a while and so had to rely on his lifemate to help him and he didn't pull as much of the dominant male crap some of Feehan's other characters have in previous books. I also liked the camaraderie and familial bonds that were formed betwe...
    2 stars I think I'll pass this series, I still like the others from the author. I keep finding books with the heroin wanting to be independent as a "modern woman" but then she acts like a child... sigh. Also, I think the story would do better with less endless inner dialogues, it reaches a point when I can't take it anymore. And last, I'm all for honest talks about their feelings between the characters but not so cheesy, please! I almost cringed ...
  • Cathy Jackson
    One of Christine's best!Dark Sentinel grabs the reader from page one and refuses to let them go. Upon meeting Andor and Lorraine, you champion their connection and crave them to be together always. He has almost given up on life, and she is the breath he so desperately needs. Every single page felt like a new adventure!I could not put this book down! Seriously!! Christine's books are always original and fast-paced, but something about Dark Sentin...
  • Evelyn
    The more I learn about the Ancients, the more I love them. Andor has lived centuries fighting for the survival of the Carpathian race, he is tired and ready to end his life in the only honorable way possible, until the decision is taken out of his hands by the feisty Lorraine. Lorraine sees only an injured man and flies into action to save him, little does she know that this is her lifemate, the other half of her soul, the only one who can comple...
  • Darcy
    This book is what I’ve come to expect from this series. I did like that Lorraine saved Andor and stood up to the vampires. Even after Lorraine was brought into the Carpathian world she fought for her place in it, wanting to train the women and kids to fight. For an ancient I thought Andor was pretty modern in what he was ok with Lorraine doing.
  • Caroline
    A great book. Andor is really a wonderful caring man with enough Ancient thinking to make his pairing to Lorraine - who thoroughly modern - a fun thing to read and watch develop. Some surprises were fun, others not so much and little Bella acting like a spoilt little girl was just grand as that is what normal little 4year olds do :)
  • Debrac2014
    3.5 stars! I enjoyed the story line and liked the main characters of Lorraine and Andor! The author has toned down Andor, allowing Lorraine to fight along side the men against Sergey's vampires and creatures!
