Love the story plot, C. Freehan is a great story teller; audible presentation sucks. Especially the "echoing mind thoughts" and the forced theatrically voice presentation. From this point forward I will read the books.
Honestly, I like Christine Feehan...most of the time. I find her books imaginative and fun, but this one was just too much of the same thing over and over again. I kept waiting for the plot to start but it never seemed to. It was just "she's mine" or "I must take her" or "I can't possibly love this man" "I love this man" "She is everything" some other goofy possesion thing...but I suppose that fits the title.
It seems like Ms. Feehan will put out a good book in the series and then one that is just full of sex and no substance. This was one of the latter. One with a plot and then one that borders on porn. If you have read any of the Dark series then you know what lifemates are and the level of attachment they have for one and other. You don't need to be reminded of it in every paragraph.
I did, however, enjoy the narrators. They were fantastic and I found myself searching for other books read by them.
All in all, I wasted $20...but I will, nevertheless, buy the next one.
I could not wait for this book and was not disappointed. I totally loved Nicolas and Lara!! I cried when Nicolas learned of Lara's torture. Also I liked that the other characters in previous books were brought back in this one.
The was by far the worst of the 'Dark' Series. I found myself annoyed thoughout this book, something which I have not experienced in any on Feehan's books yet. The plot was trite, the narrators grated, and I found myself not caring about any of the charactors. I just wanted the book to end. I don't know if this book is a fluke, or if Feehan has reached the point where she needs to end the series, for her character's sakes, if for no other reason.
If this is your first experience with Christine Feehan's, don't judge her by this one. Her other 'Dark' books are better as are the 'Drake Sisters' and 'Game' series.
The author changed her style from acceptable love to trashy descriptions. The story line lacked her usual character idenity to a flat nonsense. I hope any future endevors she will revert to tried and proven success.
