I've been a fan of the Dark Series for a couple of years now, and I've read every book. I know they aren't great literature, but they *are* one of my favorite guilty pleasures -- and they're very well done for the genre. I wasn't entirely sure how I'd like them on audiobook, but I was very pleasantly surprised! Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross do a superb job with the narration and the dialogue -- and Gigante has that deep, sexy voice that is very much like I'd imagine a Carpathian would speak.
I've listened to two other audio versions of Dark Series books, and they weren't bad but not nearly as well read/acted as this one. I'd love to hear Gigante read "The Dark Prince."
This is just personal preference, but I think all of these books should be read by a male/female pair -- and preferably one as talented as these two. Because the characters are such strong masculine and feminine archetypes (in some ways), it seems especially discordant to have male roles read by women, and vice versa.
