"The erotic, gripping series that has defined an entire genre." (J. R. Ward) continues as #1 New York Times best-selling author Christine Feehan links the fates of two strangers bound by a secret in the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains....
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. But the real reason for his return home could prove deadly if discovered by the wrong man - or woman. Upon his arrival, he is compelled by a beautiful and enigmatic stranger who carries the scent of fresh earth, of forest, of the night itself.
In time Tatijana and Fenris will discover all that unites them - their secrets and pasts, their predators, and the hot flush of passion that stirs their souls. Yet just as surely, seduced into the silvery darkness of a full-moon night, they’ll also discover everything ancient and evil that exists to destroy them.

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.
If a better narrator was used. I recommend narrators from Dark Slayer or Dark Peril. They express the accents better and make u feel more engrossed in the story. I'm hoping better narrator is used for the next two books in this trilogy.
Yes but didn't. Just read the book instead. Narrator very disappointing.
Please use a better narrator for the next two books in the trilogy of this series. Like in Dark Slayer or Dark Peril.
Really good story.
Loved the battle scenes.
He is just reading the story, not performing. You don't know which character is which, they all sound the same.
The book is exciting, the narration made me want to cry.
Please bring back Phil Gigante and Jane brown for the female narration.
Not the audio book version. I will be reading the eBook. This author is usually amazing. It's disappointing!!!
I need to but the hard copy. I couldn't make it through the audio version.
Everything. This is the first time I have heard this narrator. Maybe he's better with other books but not this one. I LOVE Christine Feehan books I own everything she has written in eBook and audio. This audio book was a big waste of money.
Tom Stechschulte!!!! The man knows these books and is a great pleasure to listen to.
Love Christine Feehan's books and this one was no different AFTER I bought it in hardcopy just to read it after only an hour and a half of the worse narrator I've ever had the misfortune to listen to! His diction, silences and emphasis in odd places made the listening excruciating. Although I own every book available in audio by this author, even when the narration has not been the best, I've never returned a book of hers... until now! It was painful to listen to him butcher a story I had so looked forward to!
After reading this book in hardcover, I can say that the scene in which the Prince creates a new name for what is perceived by the lycanthropes as always being a vampire mix abomination.
This book is worth the time to read in book form as it is also partly the story of Dimitri and Skyler which is concluded in the next book out in January. It has been worth the wait of all these years to finally learn more about Dimitri, his family and history. I pray a different narrator is chosen as I will never purchase another book read by Robert Sarkus! Ever!
"Tatiyana" not "Tatijohna"!
No. The headline above is what I kept saying throughout the book. It was extremely annoying. Plus he had them all speaking like Americans except for Jacques, who he gave a French accent, even though the book clearly states that Jacques is Mikhail's brother. Even without those blunders, his reading was just okay. Oh, and he made the unemotional Carpathians sound emotional. Murr. Please, please, please, have a different narrator for the next books, please!
the narration is very much a letdown, especially after the last few books
.I am actually not done, but i am excited about the story line. itself.
i feel read to, i am not living it as with Gigantes narration.
just write this review
Christine Feehan... yes. I usually get her Dark books. Robert Sarkus... uh... probably not.
haven't gotten there yet.
name pronunciation needs immediate and intensive help. narration was flat. the whole thing needs a complete reboot.
all three? Anger that the producer let the names get so slaughtered. Sadness that Ms. Feehan hasn't curbed her tendencies to repeat things... still... and disappointment in the first two emotions because the story is incredible, imaginative. just needs better narration and an story editor willing to force the author to cut the repetition.
The narration spoiled it for me. The characters sounded like a race of robots. I intend to read the book at a later date.
I am addicted!!! When I am not listening to a book on my iPod I am reading books not available on Audible.
I have this entire series on audio, this is the first time I have considered purchasing the book. I am so disappointed!! The narrator was bad, there are 2 or 3 names he pronounces differently/wrong than all other books that these characters are in. Research! Research! Research!
The main characters name sounds like TATAJOHNYA vs. Tatijana. Robert Sarkus was not all bad but after listening to the previous 23 books it is a HUGE difference, please bring back Phil Gigante!!!
I waited and waited for this book and as soon as I heard him say the main characters name I knew it was going to be a hard listen. I love this book and look forward to reading it again... on my tablet.
