The male and female voice narrations gave depth and life to the love story. I fell madly in love with Dominic right along with Solange. The poetry at the beginning of each chapter, just wonderful; the poetry enhanced the love story and made it much more moving. There was lots of passion, but the tenderness of love story is what I can't forget. Together the two heros where invincible. I couldn't put this book down. I devoured the novel in 2 days; and then played it again. There are a lot of Carpathian books, but I recommend this one as a must read. I been looking through the series for my next thriller!, This book is the second Dark Series Novel that I've read; I read the Author,s Edition of the Dark Prince, Book 1. Both stories were page turning, but I must say that I enjoyed this book more, because the heroine was a fiece, strong, and a couragous warrior, as well as sweetly feminine and vunerable to her man. The lovers were hot, hot, hot...this is one of the best erotic fantasies I have every read.
This continues to be a major story, I can't wait for the next one in my wish list. I haven't been disappointed. AWESOME!
I love this series and waited anxiously for the latest book, but was disappointed. The story was not as developed as it could have been and the story seemed to lack characters and depth.
The Dark Series is such a good series, and this did not quit meet up with some of the others (Dark Curse, Dark Slayer). I think I was missing the interaction with other characters like Dominic and Solange's family. The middle was a little drawn out, and I think interaction with the other characters would have tied it together well. But over all I liked it.
This was the worse book in the series!!!! A lot of sex, no substance and the plot was incomplete. Seems like the author needed to meet a deadline, so she threw something together. A big disappointment.
Tell us about yourself! I am a retired senior who enjoys reading, literally and audibly. I play games on the computer (BFG) and Playstation
I love Christine's Dark Series, in the beginning her characters came alive and there was a storyline; even though the storyline was the same in all the books, the characters took on a life of their own. I loved the referencing of other characters in each new book, they all became a family.
After The Celebration the characters have become thin, no substance it's all sexual thoughts, the repetitive dialogue is soooo boring. I find myself forwarding page after page. This was my first book in audible of the Dark Series and I want to try each new book but I find it hard to make myself purchase one in either book form or audible.
I usually like Christine Feehan's Carpathian books. They're usually good escapist listening and I enjoy the continuing storyline that runs through them. This book was a great disappointment. I'm not a prude but this book was one long sex scene with very little story to tie it together. It sometimes was bordering on pornographic and I found it thoroughly unpleasant. WAY too much sex and very little storyline. I'll give her one more chance but if the next Carpathian novel follows this format, then I'm done with the series.
I tried getting behind these books. I couldn't do it!! I stomached 1 and a half books and had to stop. I came accross this one .. forgetting it was part of a series until I started listening to it. How dissapointing to waste my money on this. Nothing angers me more then when an "author" tries to wrap what seems to be a really good book around soft porn. I will NOT make this mistake again.
I'm only in chapter 6, and I am not that impressed. The woman is so annoying with all the insecurities, and the long incessant complaining about how she's not good enough and blah, blah, blah. Then there were the maggots and the great detail for the decay...This just isn't my kind of book I guess. I'll keep listening, but I just don't want to.
I have read or listened to the entire series and was really looking forward to this one. I read the other reviews and really was expecting to like this one as much as I've liked the rest of the series, but, frankly, I found it boring! The first half of the book seemed to be one long fight scene. It didn't seem to have as much about the relationship between the 2 main characters.
