He Lives In a Lair

This was actually a post I did on my other blog back in April but I thought it was appropriate to post it here...

Okay, so I'm always searching for something to read. I search the internet sites I like for reader recommendations. Several sites mentioned this Carpathian series (it's 20 books - yay!). Well, I started reading them and wow. Kinda disappointed. They are like vampires but not. When they go bad they become vampires, but not undead. Anyhoo, I'm up to book 3 (I'm so disappointed I keep reading them - yeah, I have issues) and the vampire kidnaps the "independent young heroine" and brings her to a cave. "Where are we?" she asks. "In my lair," is his reply. I mean, please. Who says "this is my lair"? Honestly. Then he proceeds to chain her to the wall. Where are all these caves with convenient chains attached to the walls? Maybe here in Louisiana the water table makes the cave walls to weak to support chains so if you kidnap someone and bring them to your lair you have to just tie them with rope and put them in a corner (technically not a corner since caves are not square - okay put them in a crevice?). In all of the photos of caves I looked at, not one set of chains....hmmmmm.... Oh yeah, my point is....I'm going to call either my house or my bedroom my lair. I can't decide which.

*Update: I never did finish that 3rd book. I dont' know if it's just me or if I'm reading the wrong series because I know Ms. Feehan has a huge fanbase. Maybe I'll try them again later...keep them on the back burner so to speak.


  1. LOL! You crack me up Patti!

    I'm not a big fan of Feehan's Carpathian Vamps either. To me, its just the same story told over and over again but with different yet very similar characters. Talk about redundant. Although, like you, I've read like ten books out of the series. Why? I have no idea...

    But really, who does say "my lair"?? lol!!

    ;) VFG

  2. Glad I'm not alone in my Carpathian thoughts! I might try one of her other books though. Maybe :)
