    Tatijana of the Dragonseekers spent centuries encased in ice with her sister, trapped in limbo between life and death, never speaking to a soul other than those who tormented her. Now, she has been freed from her frozen prison by an unknown descendent. Awakened in human form, Tatijana yearns to explore the modern world in which she now lives - a world with more mysteries than she is prepared for. Fenris Dalka has returned to the Carpathian Mountains after a long absence to be with his brother. He is scarred by centuries of battle, and every hard-won victory.

    Story

    I only made it 20%through the narration before I turned it off and read the story alone. This narrator can't pronounce the main female characters name correctly, he sounds as if he is bored. He reads too fast at times and to slow at others. There is no excitement in the battle scenes and no emotion between the characters. What a shame that a wonderful story is ruined by a horrible narrator. I hope that the next Dark series book they bring back Phil Gigante who is wonderful to listen to and knows how to emote a story.
    I can't stress enough what a disservice was done to the story by the narrator. This guy is the worst I have ever listened to, and that is saying something when I have listened to over 200 audio books. If I could I would only give the narrator 1/2 of a star simply for reading it.

    Story

    The second book is better with more action and expansion of the story line. But I still wish they were full length books because the characters could use more depth than you can get in a novella.
    The narration is still so poor with no sense of rhythm, no real ability to emote for the characters. The narrator is boring and really harms the story and makes it harder to enjoy what there is of the plot.

    The story of the Pantera is interesting and the novellas are written well. I wish they were full length books because the characters could use more depth than you can get in a novella.

    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    Story

    Death's Rival, the 5th installment of Faith Hunter's Skinwalkers series, did not fail in keeping me riveted and excited. Unfortunately, this was the first of the series I had gotten in audio format and I find I am not happy with the narration. It was distracting to hear the mispronunciations of woo many of the character's names. Sentences read out of order, or words skipped, also the annoying almost false Southern accent used all drew away from they fun of the story.
    I had hoped to purchase all the other books in audio also, but find I can't do so as it is the same narrator for all of them. If you don't read along with the audiobook and just listen to it, and if you don't mind the mispronunciations then you will enjoy this story.
