A shape-shifter, Natalya hunts those who kill by night. Searching for vampires and Carpathians high in the mountains, she is as deadly as she is beautiful. Vikirnoff, a Carpathian, also hunts vampires, but his people are Natalya's enemies. One night, Vikirnoff joins Natalya in a vicious clash with vampires. Although the two are victors, the battle between their hearts and souls has just begun. Can desire overcome their ancestral enmity?
Sensuous language and strands of Carpathian lore add sumptuous layers of pleasure to Dark Demon, which captured the number-two spot on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly best seller lists.
Love in vein: listen to more Carpathian tales in Christine Feehan's Dark Series.

How many "hot searing kisses" can two characters share in one story. Good God! The author really needs to work on widening her vocabulary. I have never experienced so much unjustifiable blatant sexual tension. Just too much, it made the story almost unbearable. After spending over $20.00 I forced myself to finish. Save yourself.
I love this book! It was by far my favorite Carpathian novel. I think the narration was wonderful and he hit the highlights and low lights and it was the overall perfect read.
This is a great book I read it already but the guy who reads it just drones on and on putting me to sleep. The action is boring!!
This is one of the best of the Dark Series, and I've read them all. This is however, one of few that I've listed to as an audible book. Oh my goodness, the man's voice was sad! It reminded me of someone doing an imitation (and not a particularly good one...) of an old Dracula movie. The female voice was good, but the male's was stilted and totally affected. Distracting to the story? Yes.
Okay - this is one of the better books from the Dark Series. As I've been listening to all of the audio - I refrained for a long time from buying this selection due to the narrarator. OMG - he is awful (mispronouncing names, his creepy voice, etc.). If the listeners have any say - Please choose a "woman" or a better narrarator for future books. With that said - the book was awesome. Lots of good information revealed in this one. For true fans - you'll love it. For first timers - try listening to 1 of the earlier books first.
I love the series. I'm listening to them one after another. :-) But the narrator is ruining it for me. The female voices need much to be desired. Even the males aren't that good. Not enough variance between them. Sometimes I forget who's talking. ugh I hope they get another one.
I am already a big fan of Feehan's Carpathian series, and this book was another good addition. Good writing, enjoyable main characters, plus some past characters we know and love..
It was hard to listen to the narrator though. This book really needed a female voice for the heroine. The inflection for her was grating on my nerves at some parts..
If you like her other books then you will enjoy this one also.
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
Novel/novella 16: Natalya Shonski (Dragonseeker) & Vikirnoff Von Shrieder. The elusive Natalya who's always on the run meets the grim Vikirnoff. And the book turns into one of Feehan's best with the two characters playing off each other. Who would have guessed? I'm almost upset that "Vik" didn't come across as forbidding a character as in Dark Destiny - his brother's story. If you read the story you'll know why my favorite line is "OK, he can have the book". And who knew Mikhail had it in him?
A MAN WILLING TO TAKE HER BAD IDEAL
VIKIRNOFF BECAUSE HE FELL IN LOVE AT THAT TIME
I ENJOYED THE BOOK AS MUCH AS THE OTHERS
This is one of my favorites in the dark series. The characters aren't "special", meaning they are pretty standard personalities for carpathians and their part human life mates. But the battle scene at the end is spectacular and will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end! The narrator is definitely not one of my favorites, but he did a better job in this one, than he did in the book just prior. So I can't complain. If you like the dark series, then this is one you must add to your collection.
