New York Times best-selling author Christine Feehan skillfully weaves strands of the paranormal and romance to create her suspense-filled novels.

"This out-of-the-ordinary romance is deeply sensuous with exquisitely detailed lovemaking and equally vivid paranormal battle scenes involving shape-shifting, running up walls, heaving fireballs, and dragons erupting from the earth. Although this is part of Feehan's popular Dark series, it's quite accessible to readers new to the world of the Carpathians." (Booklist)
Christine Feehans books are remarkable. They combine imagery, emotion, complexity, and darkness in such a loving way. There is no other for me that can write a paranormal book this way all her books including this one are intriguing. Nicolae and Destiny are compeling characters who do not let adversity stand in their way. The ancient language and the code of natural healing along with the idea of a community coming together almost seems like something we should emmulate today. I only wish that men were as caring and concerned as Feehan's character are but not as bossy and controlling. Yet Feehan is not stingy in the sexual erotic area. These couples are highly sexual! They might even make you quiet hot under the collar. The stories all generally follow the same plot with some variations but it's always nice to see what new setting or situation is going on. Each book links them in some way to the previous ones but Feehan does not dwell too much on the previous characters unless it is in some way an integral part of the story. Her books are always good reads.
I really like the Dark Series. Have been reading them all. But the narrator. UGH His female voices are, in my opinion, terrible. And his male voices are just plane irritating. I will finish the series...he has I think 3 or 4 more books as the narrator. I hope I can make it.
I just wanted to say that the story of Nicolae and Destiny is by far my favorite story in this series. I agree about the narrator, but the story itself is great! I really like the dual narrating they have in book 20 and hope they keep with that theme! But again this love story is by far my favorite in the series!!
I've read them all and i found all but a few enjoyable this was one of the better ones, the narrators was pretty good, There are only a few of the books where the women characters seem to have some substance, dark possession, Dark Melody, dark destiny,
dark demon, and a few others I can't bring to mind now, but over all the series is pretty good I was dissapointed when I finished, but based on some of the new characters development in previous books there are plenty more to pull from, I would like to see more of the self sufficient female, not waiting around waiting to be save???(gag)
I am a huge fan of Christine Feehan and love that I can now not only read her stories but can get them on audible.com I have not had a lot of time to read books lately and listen to them on my MP player. If you are a Feehan fan enjoy.
Great story but the narrator's voice had me picturing a group of elderly carpathians. It made it very hard to really see the book as I knew it should be. I can't bring myself to listen the next in the series since it has the same narrator.

NO! I have other Dark series audio books with Richard Ferrone as narrator. I would NOT Have bought them if I had know how bad a narrator he is.
Velda and Inez the 2 sisters
He didn't sound female in the female parts at all and he sounded evil he should have just narrated the Vampire voice. He doesn't have a stately Old English voice to portray the male Carpathian. Richard Ferrone just sounds creepy!!
No because it is a prat of a series and the main characters are in their own books and are also mentioned in the other Dark Series books.
I have the entire Dark series on audio some by Books in Motion some by Tantor audio and the females narrating this audio books did a great job. I don't think Richard Ferrone is good for this audio series. Get someone else.
I've read all the books in the Dark Series and the story of Destiny and Nicholae is one of my favorites.
I love paranormal romances...
My girlfriend and I have been listening to this series at work... We get so into it that we block out any and almost all background noise... We are totally in love with this series. I would recommend anyone get them and listen to them especially if you like romance... Christine Feehan is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
