#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan treats us to another story of the Carpathians and their Dark Series with Dark Predator, the scorching tale of an immortal warrior haunted by his past…and threatened by a dangerous future.
Zacarias De La Cruz is a master executioner, a fearsome warrior who is as brutal as the undead he hunts. Over the long, dark centuries, he has fought so many battles, they’ve blurred into an endless river of blood that has hardened his soul and turned him into the merciless, ruthless and implacable dark protector.
Today, however, his savage journey is finally over. After a thousand years of war, he has accomplished his ultimate mission—the wellbeing of his brothers. Now, having found the lifemates they’ve been searching for, they’re all at peace. But where does that leave Zacarias? After living on the edge of madness for centuries as a killing machine, he is adrift, wondering who he really is.
The answer awaits him back home in Peru, in the betrayal of a woman who is readying her trap, in the vengeance of an old enemy, in the fallout of a bloody family legacy…and most of all, in the appearance of a lifemate he never could have imagined.

Reviewer: Penny P
Because of the negative reviews, this was the first Feehan novel that I havw ever waited a long time to read. Now after reading it, I think that this book actually transcends the genre of romantic paranormals and creates a metaphor for the experiences of so many of our returning veterans. People who have to fight true evil often find their psyches damaged like Zacarius's soul is. Zacarius is ancient warrior who has been alive for more than 2,000 years (for readers who have not read Dark Dream, they may not be aware of just how old these ancient warrior are). Feehan dares to create a hero that the reader may find abhorant and repugnant. By the end of the novel, I realized that I cared about the hero very much, and the point that Zacarius's dark nature is a source of his strength in understanding and defeating evil is a complex more concept that is not often found in escapist literature. I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel, and I congratulate Feehan on having the courage to challenge herself as a writer and to respect the intelligence of her readers' imaginations. Many modern readers that are used to shorter paragraphs and who have a short attention span will find this book a challenge. By the way, Feehan is drawing upon the romantic traditions of Emily Bronte (see Wuthering Heights). I am trying not to be a snob but I grow weary at the lack of vocabulary and complexity of many of the e-publishers.
I enjoy reading the book then again I have a lot of the series in my collects. Along with the 7 sisters.
I like how she writes,just something so dark and romantic. I hope she keeps adding to her dark series. They are my favorite.
