its short but not lacking in all depth better if you've read the other books of course but you would enjoy it without.
As usual Christine Feehan delivers and interesting and compelling tale. I could listen/read her stories over and over.
The addition of the Jaguar People into the complexity of the Dark Series give yet another twist of interest to the tales.
Karina Galt was the single narrator and did an excellent job of portraying of multiple characters.
This book as with all the Dark Series draws you in and has you feeling along with the characters.
My only comment is that as I have listen to other books in this series and other authors works is the I find I have a preference for multiple narrators. As least one for each of the lead characters.
In a jungle a beautiful activist (Juliette of a dying race) liberates animals from a secret laboratory and stumbles across an unexpected Carpathian prisoner. Released from his bonds Riordan claims Juliette for his lifemate and gives the reader a guarenteed hot, spicy, thrilling story.
I wanted to like this because the novella is good but the slow motion, boring narration ruined it for me. If you want to hear a good narration of a Feehan novella try Dark Descent with Natalie Gold narrating.
I loved this story, which gives us greater insight into another race, the Jaguars, which we have only heard bits and pieces of up until now. I am just sorry that this story was so short. So much more could have been said and done.
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 :-))
Book14: Novella: Riordan De La Cruz & Juliette Sangria. Not sure if you'd say this was one or two new story arcs with two completely new characters to the series, same as Dark Destiny. This one didn't have a "guest appearance" by Gregori and Savannah. This story does have a whole new location/continent & "family". The brutality of the Jaguar race on it's females is not for the faint of heart. Galt did a good job on the narration, in general, but her pronunciation of Riordan just doesn't sound right.
The instant chemistry that was shown to exist between the major characters.
The scene where Solange tries to kill Riordan and Juliette saves him.
Ms Galt brings the characters to life and help you understand the true feelings fo each person.
Look out vampires there's another couple on the scene ready to rid the world of your evil.
