Dark Series Wiki

This is the seventeenth book in the series. It tells the story of how the Carpathians came together to celebrate Christmas for the first time. It is the first time a large number of former characters came together for any reason, to have recipes included, and deleted scenes added to the Mass Market Paperback printing.


After centuries as the Prince of the Carpathians, Mikhail Dubrinsky fears he can't protect them for long from their greatest threat: the extinction of their species—a fate that has become the wicked prayer of his enemies. To ensure it, they are devising a scheme to slaughter Carpathian females. But even with his own lifemate, Raven, and their daughter, Savannah, vulnerable to the encroaching evil, Mikhail's hope is not lost..

In this desperate season, Carpathians from around the world are gathering to join their strengths, their souls, and their powers to bring light to the darkness. But so too are their adversaries uniting—hunters, vampires, demons, and betrayers—bringing untold dangers into the fold of the Carpathian people.

Now for the first time, born from the uninhibited imagination of Christine Feehan, all the inhabitants of Carpathian legend are reunited for a celebration of sensual adventure, undying passion, and astonishing fantasy—one to remember for a thousand lifetimes.

Christine's Notes[]

Over the years many of you have written to me asking for a Carpathian reunion book. I have FINALLY managed to convince my publishers that you all want and deserve it!

Dark Celebration is a special hardcover book. It is my "thank you" to all of you who have supported my writing and given me such a wonderful career. Please consider it my gift to you. I'm bringing back many of your favorite characters and I hope you enjoy it.

The reunion book includes a collection of the winning yummy recipes from the Dark Desserts Recipe Contest held at the end of last year.
