I love discovering new stories while driving or working in the barn, reading voraciously since I could walk. There is no genre, just magic
I found this book on a clearance rack in hardback and decided to try it as I do often with new authors. Great story line and characters which was enjoyable and fascinating. I fell in love with the Carpathian story and have almost all of her books now in my library having listened to all of them.
Ivory was fantastic. Strong, Interesting, & Strong as a character.
Where her wolves become part of her and the story behind her pack.
When she shared how her wolves came to be part of her family and life
Great book, I suggest you start from the beginning with book one in this series and then buy this one as it falls. However, you can really start with any of the books in this series. You simply learn about the older key players first and it builds easier in your heart and mind if you do so. You will love the book if you like sci-fi / fantasy and strong characters who are dynamic.
Suspenseful, addicting, intoxicating
I loved Ivory's courage and devotion to her wolves. I loved Rasvan and his honor. Put these 2 warriors together and you have nothing short of pure magic.
The ease of listening to a book no matter where I am and what I'm doing
You are my Lifemate
Christine Feehan's Dark series are some of the best story lines I have had the privledge to read. I absolutely love her books and look forward to every new one she writes.
It's wonderful to have male/female readers for the characters. I LOVE that they try to give accents to the characters. BUT, the readers should be familiar with the characters enough to give them appropriate accents. They have given Destiny a southern accent, when she is from Seattle, Raven a "Carpathian" accent - she is from the U.S., Jaxon has no accent - she is from Florida......
Believer in what you can't see
Yes, I have already listened to this audiobook again. I found this story both comforting and strong. Both characters bet unbeatable odds.
That after Razvan was rumor to be in league with the evil mage Xavier, he was actually being possessed by him, because he wanted to protected those he loved and away from the mage. Also, I love that Ivory had a pack of wolves that lived with her.
It is nice to have both a female and male narrator because it brings an added dimension to the story.
Yes, but it is to long to do so.
Once I started listening to the Dark Series it became one of my favorite series. I love the Carpathians and the strength of the women in this series. It also lead me to my very favorite series that Feehan wrote" the Drake Sisters".
I am always impressed with the way Feehan weaves the besotted together. I love how brilliantly the characters are unlayered and peeled back to show why they are the way they are.
Absolutely loved the wolf pack as tattoos. Carpathian wolves...what will she think of next?
They do a great job with the old world chants and accents....love them.
At the very beginning, when she found him almost gone and realized he was her lifemate.
I have read all the books in this series and loved them, when I heard the first book, Dark Prince, from Audible I was hooked. Those reading the book clearly capture each character and bring them to life with all their personalities clearly articulated and descriptive
Ivy and Razvan are my favorite characters. They both overcame such horrible events in their lives and unite to defeat evil. They work well together and are independent from the Carpathian community but gradually earn a place in the community with their devotion to ending evil
Highly recommend all of Christine Feehans books, no matter who is reading the books they manage to bring the book to life. Once you start listening you won't stop.....just like when you pick up the book and start reading...before you know it you've finished it and look forward to the next one
The overall story when read was impossible to stop reading. The performance by both narrators excellent!!
Ivory. Great heroine awesome and courageous character. Very strong willed and brave.
Yes they are my favorite pair thus far and all other performances are excellent. All accents and different characters are greatly portrayed. Well done!
Laugh at some parts
This is one of my favorite audibles and I have listened over and over. Love it! Both narrators should do more of the Dark Series
I picked this book because I enjoy Phil Gigante. I really like how he reads a story. Seems it needs to be a good story though.
I bought the latest book to see if I would like it. Then start from the beginning. I couldn't get past the first 10 chapters.... All this language that no one understands. It just drags on and on and on!
THE BOOK: I have mixed feelings about this book. While i absolutely LOVE the story and the characters and every other thing about it... I absolutely DETEST the use of the Carpathian language. When reading, i skip over it. When listening, it just irritates me. I'm also not fond of the reading of the healing chant or all the spells used by the heroine. It's distracting and I thought the way it was done in earlier books, "they all sang the ancient healing chant quietly" worked just fine. If the author/publisher (whomever decided this was a good idea) wants to use the language, once or twice or having the hero call the heroine a pet name in that language is fine. but to continually use it, followed by the English translation is just annoying beyond belief. It's really a shame too because the story is SO very good.
THE NARRATION: I'm in love with having both a male and female narrator. It makes the POV shifts much more noticeable and, well, i just like it. Mr. Gigante did an excellent job with the Carpathian language and i love his smooth voice. Ms. Brown also had a very pleasing voice, silky voice. I loved the accents by both narrators. All in all, the narration made this book very enjoyable.
