Dark demon


Dark Demon by Christine Feehan

Christine Feehan has worked magic on a legion of fans with her darkly thrilling Carpathian tales. Now she delivers the provocative tale of a female vampire slayer who proves as seductive—and mysterious—as the night dwellers she stalks…

For as long as she can remember, Natalya has been fighting demons: first in the form of childhood nightmares, then later, immortal creatures that kill and prey on the innocent—including her own twin brother. Whether Carpathian or vampire, she slays those who murder by night, and has no equal—until she is seduced by the very thing she considers her enemy…

A Carpathian who has seen nearly everything in his endless existence, Vikirnoff didn’t think he could be surprised anymore—until he faces a woman who rivals him as a vampire hunter. A formidable and gifted warrior in her own right, Natalya has a nature that is strangely familiar—yet alien—to his own. Who is this mysterious female who fears no one—not even him? Natalya could be the key to the survival of the Carpathians, but all Vikirnoff is certain of is that she is the key to his heart and soul…

Vikirnoff Von Shrieder believes that women, in particular lifemates live to please their man. He is positive his lifemate will hang on his every word and do what he tells her. Natalya Shonski has a magic all her own. She's battled vampires, is quite disgusted when they keep rising, but gamely kills them multiple times, and she has a smart mouth on her. The last thing she is EVER going to do is hang onto some man's word and do what he tells her.

The book takes place in the Carpathian Mountains and revisits the ice cave of the dark wizard and brings a battle right to the door of the Prince. The book is filled with action and humor and the chemistry between Vikirnoff and Natalya was amazing. This book also introduces the original Carpathian language so hopefully it will be something to really look forward to.

Romantic TimesJill M. Smith top pick

Storyteller extraordinaire Feehan finally brings together plot threads that she has been weaving for some time in this immensely thrilling book. Romance, drama, danger and flashes of humor are on full display. This is a page-turner in the truest sense.

The Best ReviewsHarriet Klauser

Terrific action packed thriller

DARK DEMON is must reading for long time fans of the Carpathian novels, not just because it is a terrific action-packed romantic thriller, but also because many subplots dangling from previous books tie together. The lead duet are fantastic star-crossed soulmates, but they have so much trouble ahead that it makes their path to eternal happiness look bleak. Natalya and Vikirnof make this a superb entry that can stand alone as a fabulous paranormal romantic suspense, but to savor the full taste newcomers would be better suited finding much of the backlist.

Romance JunkiesBrenda Edde

Ms. Christine Feehan has added another thriller to her Dark series with the addition of DARK DEMON. Her heroine, Natalya is a mixture of a hard blooded warrior and a lonely woman who watches late night horror films. Her references to B-rated movies and TV shows baffle Vikirnoff who was expecting a gentle woman who would be thrilled to be his lifemate, not a smart-mouthed woman who battles vampires.

The ongoing story line of a vampire conspiracy to kill the Prince of the Carpathians is merged with the Dragonseeker lineage that has been hinted at in past books. As Natalya and Vikirnoff deal with her compulsion to visit the cave of the Mage, clues that have been dropped in past books fall into place, the action starts and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

Those of you who are loyal Dark fans will be thrilled with some of the surprises Ms. Feehan includes in this book as well as the appearance of so many of the Carpathians you know. If you are a first time reader of Ms. Feehan’s books you will be hooked and buying all of her previous books. I highly recommend DARK DEMON, Ms. Feehan is at the top of her game, answering just enough questions to satisfy our thirst to know who is challenging the Prince and throwing in the new twists that she is so famous for.

Fallen Angel ReviewJaymi, reviewerFive angels

Natalya and Vikirnoff don’t just sizzle on the pages; they’re like a raging inferno. Every scene is so intense and passionate; readers will be drawn by the sheer magnetism. Even with their connection so intense, there are laugh out loud moments throughout. Natalya tries to explain to Vikirnoff that she’s more like Xena than Donna Reed or June Cleaver. The use of today’s movie culture is definitely a comical benefit to this book. Dark Demon is just an amazing book. Christine Feehan doesn’t just draw readers in, she holds them there captivated. This series never falters or becomes stale. The bottom-line is the same; a Carpathian in need of his lifemate, yet each book is unique, each plot intricate. I loved the involvement from previous characters. It’s always exciting to see the Carpathians interact. The action in Dark Demon is non-stop, the love story engaging, and the storytelling is fabulous. Christine Feehan does vampires like no other. Reviewer

Terrie FigueroaRomance Reviews Today A perfect 10

In addition to the two larger than life protagonists, secondary characters include Mikhail and Raven (DARK PRINCE), Falcon and Sarah (Dark Dream in the AFTER TWILIGHT anthology), Gabrielle and Jubal, brother and sister of Joie (Dark Descent in THE ONLY ONE anthology), and several evil vampires and a very nasty wizard. In DARK DEMON, Ms. Feehan begins to weave together threads from previous stories and you can tell that the series is leading up to something very big.

The sixteenth tale in this fascinating and popular series, DARK DEMON delivers a mega read that will be talked about for a long time. The action and pace at the end of this novel will leave you breathless and dying for the next book in the series, DARK CELEBRATION, which can't come out fast enough for me. DARK DEMON is perhaps the most intense and exciting novel in the series to date, and rates RRT's Perfect 10. Don't miss this nail-biting, passionate and thrilling novel; go out and grab your copy of DARK DEMON immediately and then be prepared to be unable to put it down until you finish the last marvelous pages.

    Хотя Demon въехали в историю на гребне первой волны NWOBHM, впоследствии группа неоднократно меняла курс, слоняясь между хэви, мелодик-металлом и прогрессивом. Эта команда из Стаффордшира, образованная вокалистом Дэйвом Хиллом и гитаристом Мэлом Спунером, начала свой путь в 1979 году. В оригинальном составе, включавшем в себя также Пола Райли (бас), Клайва Кука (гитара) и Джона Райта (ударные), Demon заключили контракт с Clay Records и дебютировали с синглом "Liar". Миньон разошелся тиражом в 5000 копий, и в январе 1981-го квинтет приступил к записи первой полнометражки. От текстов "Night Of The Demon" веяло мистикой и оккультизмом, но саунд альбома был настолько отполирован, что за распространение пластинки взялась французская контора Carrere Records, специализировавшаяся на евродиско.

    Уже после выхода второго сопутствующего сингла ("One Helluva Night") в составе начались флуктуации, и вместо Райли и Кука в команде появились Крис Эллис и Лес Хант. В 1982-м вышел альбом "The Unexpected Guest", до сих пор считающийся классическим произведением "демонов" и одним из лучших релизов эпохи NWOBHM. Надо сказать, что концерты группы того времени по качеству не уступали исполняемому материалу. Сцена оформлялась в кладбищенском стиле, Хилл выходил к микрофону в костюме Дьявола, а его коллеги устраивали себе бутафорское кровопускание. Скопировано с Dark-World.ru.

    Казалось, карьера стаффордширских музыкантов шла на подъем, но когда они представили на Carrere свой следующий альбом, фирма забраковала материал по причине нехватки синглов. Сохранив отношения с Clay Records, группа нашла новых дистрибьюторов в лице Atlantic, и с их помощью летом 1983 года реализовала "The Plague". Данная работа заметно отличалась от двух первых релизов и, хотя острые риффы Спунера никуда не делись, значительное внимание было уделено клавишам, что придавало "демонической" музыке прогрессивный налет. Одновременно дьявольщина в текстах исчезла, а ее место заняли современные социальные проблемы. Несмотря на то, что "The Plague" обосновался на второй строчке металлических чартов и попал в общенациональный Топ 50, серьезный успех к Demon так и не пришел, в результате чего последовали очередные оргвыводы.

    В 1984 году новыми членами команды стали клавишник Стив Уоттс, басист Гэйвин Сазерленд и гитарист Джон Уотерхаус, потрудившиеся вместе с остальными над альбомом "British Standard Approved". Здесь коллектив продолжил свои прогрессивные изыскания, в результате чего заслужил от некоторых критиков сравнение с утяжеленной версией Pink Floyd. К сожалению, Спунер не дождался выхода пластинки - уже через неделю после окончания сессий он скончался от пневмонии. Лишившись одного из главных авторов песен, команда все же выстояла, но в глазах "демонических" поклонников ее популярность сильно пошатнулась.

    Партнером Хилла по подготовке материала стал Уоттс, а после выхода диска "Heart Of Our Time" бас-гитара досталась Энди Дэйлу. И если эта пластинка а-ля Bon Jovi оказалась провальной, то две следующие работы, "Breakout" и "Taking The World By Storm", вернули коллективу интерес со стороны любителей хэви-метал. Между тем недолгую кадровую стабильность нарушил уход Райта, замененного Скоттом Кроуфордом. Кроме того, в пару Уотерхаусу был поставлен экс-гитарист Discharge Стив Брукс, а Дэйл передал бас Нику Бушеллу (тоже экс-Discharge). Записанный обновленным составом студийник "Hold On To The Dream" содержал один из грандиознейших "демонических" эпиков ("No More Hell On Earth"), но, несмотря на это и сохранение преемственности "Breakout" и "Taking The World By Storm", публика встретила пластинку с прохладцей.

    Проведя ряд кадровых замен и подогнав звучание под стандарт 90-х, Demon выпустили еще один диск, однако продажи "Blow-Out" вновь оказались на низком уровне, и коллектив ушел в длительный отпуск. Вернуться с каникул "демонам" удалось только в конце декады, когда Хилл с Дэйлом, Бруксом и рядом новых персонажей возобновил гастрольную деятельность. В 2001 году группа выпустила альбом "Spaced Out Monkey", сообразно названию начиненный спейс-роковыми фишками, а спустя несколько лет вышла гораздо более тяжелая программа - "Better The Devil You Know".

    Конфигурация Demon к тому моменту вновь подверглась перекройке и выглядела следующим образом: Хилл (вокал), Дэйл (бас), Карл Финни (гитара), Рэй Волмсли (гитара), Нил Огден (ударные) и Пол Фаррингтон (клавишные). В 2006 году группа выступила в качестве хедлайнера на фестивале British Steel, после чего вновь последовала тишина продолжительностью в несколько лет. В марте 2009-го выходит официальный DVD "The Unexpected Guest Tour - Live at Tiffany's 1982", который включил концерт, где были исполнены классические композиции с первых двух альбомов, а также интервью Дэйва Хилла. Далее музыканты вновь замолкают, чтобы 20 июля 2012 года выпустить сингл "I Still Believe" с нового альбома "Unbroken". Сам альбом должен выйти в августе-сентябре 2012 года. Однако перед этим в 2011 году в составе происходят перемены: уходит Энди Дэйл, а на его место был приглашён Пол Джонсон.

      Hints

      Capra Demon farming

      Additional groups of Capra Demons can be found in Demon Ruins. Once you've beaten Ceaseless Discharge in the Demon Ruins and the lava lake has hardened, On the far right side there is an area with several Capra Demons. If you manage to make it past all of them and to the bonfire below them, you can rest there and kill the demon closest to the bonfire a lot (if it's easy for you). If you die you spawn right there so no need to travel for long just to get your stuff back! It can be a long process but it can also be effective for gaining decently easy experience. The Capra Demons in the Demon Ruins are (like many demons) very susceptible to poison arrows, and can be killed at range with just a few poisoned arrows if one has the patience.

      Strategy #1

      1. Upon entering, the boss and his dogs will immediately come after you. Circle around to the right (dodge the boss's first big swing) and run up the stairs on the left side of the arena. The dogs should follow you: kill them here. If they don't follow, try to lure them up, but be careful, because the boss can also climb the stairs. Killing the dogs quickly is critical to winning this fight; it is entirely too easy for them to stunlock you until the Capra Demon lands a killing blow. If he follows you up the stairs before the dogs are dead, feel free to drop down and get a bit of distance from him and make another attempt. 2. Once the dogs are dead, back up along the narrow stone bridge at the top of the stairs. Don't go all the way to the wall, because the boss will crowd you up there. He may not hit you there, but it can be dangerous. Remember to guard. If you are not all the way at the wall, he should jump from the beginning of the stairs and miss entirely. If you have firebombs or magic, this is the time to use it, but be careful not to fall off the bridge. 3. If you run out of firebombs (or choose not to use them in the first place), the best thing to do is lure the boss all the way to the top of the stairs. Guard with your shield and wait for him to swing a few times and get really close to you. Then you can get in a few swings with your weapon before he falls off. If you fall off with him, run back up to the top of the stairs. Rinse and repeat until he dies. If you feel like going toe-to-toe with the demon after killing the dogs, just keep a close eye on his attacks. The two-sword swing can't be blocked entirely; avoid it and you may be able to get a hit off before he recovers. His leaping attack is also useful for getting in a hit or two since if you're at close range and manage to slip to the side his back will be to you.

      Strategy #2 (No Sorcery)

      As above, run around the Capra Demon and up the stairs, killing the dogs as soon as possible without taking damage from the boss. Also as above, run right so that you are standing on the narrow shelf. Try to stand in the middle of the ledge, and keep in mind that the demon may follow you. Let him come up if it does so, but drop down and run when it is out on the ledge with you. In most cases the demon will drop down after a couple seconds and attempt to follow you. If you run back up the stairs as the demon drops down, however, it will (ideally) turn and try to face you; being "stuck" for a moment as it attempts to maintain its targeting. As you run back up, the demon may attack. This attack will most likely miss, as it will be aiming for a spot behind and below you. Be ready to block, though, if it looks like the blow is going to connect. Once on the ledge again the demon will be right below you, vulnerable to a plunging attack (RB + above enemy). Rinse and repeat this strategy to make short work of the boss. Here are some further tips to make this fight as easy as possible:

      1. Coat your weapon with fire using the Charcoal Pine Resin, purchased from the Undead Merchant (Female) in Undead Burg. This will add to your damage, since the boss is weak to fire. (Note that you cannot apply this item to the Drake Sword.) The Gold Pine Resin from the Undead Burg is also an excellent choice since it will coat the player's weapon with lightning.
      2. Equip the Drake Sword before battle, as it deals massive amounts of damage.
      3. Roll off the ledge instead of dropping, as you may get extra distance from the boss and be able to get underway more quickly.
      4. If the boss is out of range of the plunging attack, lob Firebombs or Black Firebombs at it to whittle away its HP. (Note that if the boss is out of range of your plunging attack, it will likely walk up the stairs and join you on the ledge.)

       

      Strategy #3 (Tanking)

      Unlike the two above strategies, which rely on mobility and running up the stairs, this strategy relies on having a good shield with the highest stability you can manage. By this point in the game, you should be able to obtain a fairly good shield - the three best options at this point being the Black Knight Shield (if you were lucky enough to have a Black Knight drop it), a Balder Shield (which you can farm from Balder Knights in the Undead Parish), and the Caduceus Kite Shield (which you can buy from Andre of Astora). Whichever of these you can find, choose whichever one you can get to have the highest Stability (upgraded to +5, the Balder Shield is better than the Caduceus Kite Shield, but not by a lot, and if you have found enough Twinkling Titanite to get the Black Knight Shield to +3, it beats out the other two).

      So, now that you've prepared a good shield, wear the heaviest armor you can. The Stone Knight Set is good - if you've already visited Darkroot Garden - otherwise, just equip the heaviest, most physically-defensive armor you can; for this strategy, you want to pretty much stand still at the fog door, so mobility really isn't necessary - but defense and poise can keep you alive if you don't manage to block an attack in time.

      As for rings, the best choices are probably the Ring of Favor and Protection and the Blue Tearstone Ring. These should help to keep you alive. One might think of equipping Havel's Ring, but it really isn't helpful for this fight, since you don't need to move much.

      Now, as for weapons, the Drake Sword is probably the best option, but if you've found anything that does more damage that you can effectively one-hand, use it. Ideally, you want to be able to kill a demon dog in one swing or else they can overwhelm your guard.

      So, now that you're ready, here's what you do:

      1. Enter the fog door, raise your shield and stand still; the Capra Demon should start running at you, as well as the demon dog at the top of the stairs. The second demon dog will actually remain in its little alcove unless you run farther into the area, so stand your ground.
      2. Block the Capra Demon's first attack and the single demon dog's first lunge (they should come within about a second of each other), then take the opportunity to kill off the demon dog. Now that the dog is dead, you should be able to tank everything the boss can throw at you.
      3. Keep on the defensive! If the boss is attacking, keep your shield up! If he's not attacking, lower your shield so your stamina recharges faster. Keep a close eye on his attack patterns and learn when to block and when to lower your shield; you shouldn't have any problem tanking his attacks if you remember to lower your shield when he's not attacking. If you cannot manage your stamina bar for this fight, you WILL run out of stamina and he WILL break your guard.
      4. Once you've learned his attack patterns, wait for an opportunity to attack between his swings. Remember, though, that attacking also drains your stamina, so only attack if he gives you an opportunity AND you will have the stamina afterwards to block his attacks.
      5. Keep up steps 3 and 4 until he's dead - then you can waddle (running just doesn't describe how you move in heavy armor) farther into the area and kill the second demon dog.

       

      Strategy #4 Firebombs (No Effort Necessary)

      The Capra Demon can be beaten without actually stepping into the boss arena. If you have a bow, and a few firebombs you can take it down without ever having to worry. You need 15 firebombs, or 4 black firebombs and 6 regular firebombs. You stand against a wall on the bridge just before the Capra Demon, and push as far into the corner as you can. You aim your bow above the boss arena at the 3rd ( from the left )battlement off in the distance. Proceed to throw 4 firebombs before resetting. Should only you take you 3 goes at it, and on the final go you can throw a fifth firebomb and it will still hit. You need;
