Blinded and scarred in a terrible accident, Antonietta Scarletti makes music that thrills the world with its beauty and passion. Descended from a long line of psychics, Antonietta has learned to rely on her other senses to 'see' the world around her, but nothing could have prepared her for Byron. He came to her, drawn by her music, and became her secret obsession. Others fear him, sensing that he is dangerous - a predator - but for Antonietta he is her ultimate fantasy, her dream lover. He woos her with kisses full of erotic allure, whispering that she is his light, his salvation. Byron has waited an eternity for her, and he will let nothing stand between him and the woman born to be his lifemate...

Reviews

Feehan's followers will be well sated by the latest addition to her Dark series (after Dark Guardian), set in modern-day Italy. This time around the focus is on Carpathian vampire hunter Byron Justicano, a "good" vampire who feeds only to sustain himself. He is drawn to the haunting music created by Italian concert pianist, Antonietta Scarletti, the woman he has chosen to be his "lifemate." Blinded and orphaned as a child by an explosion on the family yacht, Antonietta, a strong psychic, is heir to the Scarletti family fortune and the massive Scarletti palazzo, which accommodates all her relatives. When Byron learns that someone within the family is siphoning off the family treasures and slowly poisoning Antonietta, her grandfather and her cousin, he draws upon his supernatural powers to catch the villain. Feehan's prose is smoothly laced with romance and erotica, and the subject matter is titillating. But new readers may be daunted by the complexity of the Carpathian world, which has its own set of rules (e.g., Carpathian males can mate for life only with mortals who are psychic, and if they don't mate, they lose their emotions). Once readers gain a foothold in Feehan's fictional realm, however, they'll be roped in by this unconventional and intriguing installment. (Mar.) Forecast: Dark Symphony will likely trail close on the heels of Nora Roberts's Portrait in Death as it rockets up the charts. Already, Feehan's book has hit #85 on Amazon.com based on preorders.

Christine Feehan is so descriptive and allows the reader to feel like they are part of each scene! Her books are all captivating and drag you into a world that you find yourself wanting to protect and cherish. The entire "dark" series is worth the read...
Deborah on
 
This novel by Christine Feehan would have to be in the top 5 best novels this year. It features the male Carpathians that you loved and read about in the previous novels. I swear Christine Feehans novels are real, she portrays them so well. This is a must have read. You will fall in love with the characters, 100%.

Byron is a carpathian who seems to keep himself very much contained to himself until he finds himself drawn to the concert pianist Antonietta Scarletti. He is known to Antonietta as her grandfather's friend, but within her he finds he now feels emotions, sees colours and trying to resist the temptation to turn to evil.

A brilliant read full of mystery romance intrigue.
