What can I say another great book by Christine Feehan. I really loved how Byron was so gentle and caring to Antoinetta. Makes me want to hear her play as well. You really need to get this book.
This book had a different narrator than the previous dark series books. I didn't like him as well, but the story was great.
I've been reading this series for sometime now and always find Christine's dark series intriguing, this book however; is my first audio book so I was a little worried when I read the reviews on the narrator so at this point I really can not complare.
Personally, I did not find the narrator to be as bad as most described. I found the listening experience pleasant and entertaining.
Dark Symphony however; did have some twists in it that were quite different from the other books I have read but I found them amusing and entertaining. Once you get a clear understanding of the story line, the rest falls into place and makes for enjoyable listening.
The book is quite long but over a few days of listening here and there on my Kindle Fire I am looking forward to moving on to the next audio book....
At first, the story line was a little hard to follw but after listening and getting into the audio; the commitment and the devotion Byron had not just for his lifemate but for her family as well was touching...
The love scenes between the 2 main characters are always a favorite of mine...
I am an avid reader of trashy romance novels, especially anything that has to do with Vampires. Some days, I can pick up a book and just read, others times it is nice just to leave reality behind and lose myself in the darkness of the unknown....
A good story. But the narrator made the hero sound like a pervert. It was very difficult for me to continue listening to the book. The narrator has a decent voice, but his hero's accent and gravely voice made the hero sound like someone extremely ancient NOT sexy or desirable as I am sure the author meant for him to be.
I feel like this book is an extension of the Scarletti Curse.
No!! Not if he continues to make the hero sound like he is 200 years old!
Redo the audiobook with one of the other narrators to give the hero a better image through his voice. At least make him sound younger, please!
I truly enjoyed Feehan's story; but this narrator must have heard he was reading a 'vampire' book, and decided to channel Bela Lugosi. He was one step away from "I vant to suck your bloooood." A different narrator - with a more modern voice for our hero - would have definitely made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience.
Enjoyed the characters - had difficulty at times keeping them straight (narrator); but found a contemporary Carpathian Feehan introduced here particularly refreshing.
When a narrator puts me to sleep there's a problem. There was no depth to this and I found myself wondering if the book would 'go' anywhere. Don't get me wrong, I love the Dark series but between the extremely poor pacing in this one AND the narrator's slow and ponderous method, I deleted the book from my player after listening to the first half.
** ** ** This is a Great series really ready for the next book to come out all ready i finish them to fast
Not to fond of the male narrorators... as they do awful female voices. And lack the sensuality the "romance" novel is supposed to have, but the story is one of the best so far in the dark series :)
When I initially read this one, I really enjoyed it. I was very disappointed that it was not offered by any of the libraries nearby either by download or as a check out in the libraries themselves. I also had not listened to or read the Scarletti Curse, either. Now that I have found Audible, and I have had the opportunity to listen to the Scarletti Curse, I am truly enjoying the story.
So far, I have to say that the narrator makes me feel like I am sitting by a fireside listening to a story being told. I am glad I tried this story out.
I feel Had…… this story is so ridiculous and such a repeat of previous information you’ll will know right away you have been ripped off, there is no drama, no suspense, no mystery, The only decent part of the story is the first 4 chapters (Barely) when Byron is telling his story, and Antoinetta story.
This story is an ongoing assault of verbal fodder, which is the same conversation in different wording; it is a repeat of previous stories with the solutions already solved. This book might be used as a stand alone, to a person who has not read the series. Because so much of the story is” stuff “much of the story is repeat, you already know and if you are new to the series, you would not I did not read the previous books in order and had no problem understanding or following those stories. The erotic scenes are absolutely pathetic, if you skipped those scenes and remember previous sex scenes from other books change the names and you have it. And the secondary story, OMG< is the author taking medication? It is so inadequate for a story A blind woman sailing through the air? ( c.mon). I know this is fictional story ( but really) And a conversation that just keep repeating it self ( kid you not) with different wording. Had Feehan lost her creativity? I know she’s has lost a reader. I’m so done with this author I based purchasing this book on previous ( Amazon ) reviews and keep checking and rechecking if this is the same book. These reviewers must be getting paid, I feel thoroughly insulted that this author and a few others have resulted to with different formulated story lines to boost sales, and continue to think their readers would not recognize this deception, they must not intend to keep writing, this author may have suckered me this time but never again.
