Publisher's Summary

"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.

    "Different - took time to get into"
    Where does Dark Lycan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5


    If you’ve listened to books by Christine Feehan before, how does this one compare?

    Yes, read or listen to all of the books in this series (26 or 27) It is really a new point in the on going saga. I like that we got a update on some of the old charters.


    What does Robert Sarkus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did ok, could not tell which charter he was reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Took a minute to get into the story, but middle ways I was hooked.

    Story
    "TO BAD * NARRATOR OF THIS BOOK IS SORELY LACKING *"
    If you could sum up Dark Lycan in three words, what would they be?

    Romantic, Exciting, Satisfying... I love Christine Feehan's novels, especially the Dark Series. Dark Lycan was not an exception. But, don't waste your time with this audio book; go straight to the hardcover or e-book.


    If you’ve listened to books by Christine Feehan before, how does this one compare?

    I have done both, read and listened to the books in this series. In all cases, except for this book, I think it’s far better to listen to the audio books. I find this series a very complicated read, the Carpathian’s have their own unique language, as well as many complex traditions. It’s a real treat to sit back and listen, as a narrator (like Phil Gigante) unfolds these very exciting and romantic novels. Note, I said Phil Gigante, not Robert Sarkus. As I said above, don't waste your time with this audio book; go straight to the hardcover or e-book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Robert Sarkus, the narrator of this book, just reads the story with little to no emotion. Additionally, it’s clear he did not take enough time researching the Carpathian language, as many of the words and names are pronounced improperly. For this book, I stopped listening and went out and purchased the hardcover. Good news, Phil Gigante has returned for Dark Wolf, the next book in this series. I can hardly wait.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A brand new twist on the age-old vampire saga...


    Any additional comments?

    Do not let this audio book stop you from listening to other books in this series. Just a reminder the next book, Dark Wolf, brings back Phil Gigante as the narrator. Gigante’s interpenetration of the characters and the storyline lets you get lost in the book and fall in love with the series all over again. You’ll find yourself wanting to listen to the entire series, starting with book 1, all over again.

    "Considered not finishing due to Narrator"
    Where does Dark Lycan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is by far near the bottom, due to the poor narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Sarkus’s performances?

    When you have a series like this where people are only listening to the book each narrator owes it to the listeners to make sure he is consistent in the pronunciation used by prior Narrators. It was very confusing at times trying to figure out who was talking or in the action because of how he butchered the names.Every time he said the main females name I cringed inwardly. If it was a series that I had listened to before I would NOT purchase the audio book with out reading reviews and previewing the book. This book will not be listened to again.

    "Good listen"

    Dar Lycan is a good listen. The story revolves around Tatijana of the Dragonseekers and Fenn, a lycan hunter turned hybrid, part lycan part carpathian. The story is entertaining and action packed, with fights between vampires and rogue shifters with s twist at the end I didn't see coming. I can hardly wait to read the book.

    I didn't care for the narrator though. Robert Sarkus has a nice voice, but wasn't what was needed for these characters. I liked his voice, and the book moved along at a good pace, but every once in a while I would stop listening and say to myself that that character shouldn't sound like that. I kept thinking that Gregory should sound more menacing, Tatijana more feminine and Jacques shouldn't sound like a frenchman (he is carpathian, not french). Maybe I have gotten use to having both a female and male narrator (Dark Predator, Dark Slayer, etc...), but I believe this book would have benefitted more from this type of narration.

    If you are a Dark series fan and narration doesn't matter, I recommend this book.

    "Please use another narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Narrator, definitely the narrator. Spoke in monotones at times, other times he would mix up the voices, wasn't sure who was talking. This series is not well written, but I am enjoying the story and ignoring the poor quality of writing. But when you're listening to it, it's really hard to get into the story with poor narration.

    "The best of the series"

    I loved this book. Christine Feehan was the main reason I bean reading paranormal romance novels and she hasn't lost her edge from "Dark Prince" to "Dark Lycan". This book was amazing. I would recommend it again and again. It is a book that you will go back to and want to reread. And the narrator was just fantastic as well. There just isn't enough good things I can say about this book.

    "Dark Lycan is a must listen."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Lycan to be better than the print version?

    I only have the audio..I could not be happier.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Where do I start? Packed with the supernatural, on so many levels, we have a new mixed blood s, fighting for their rights, their people, and for their love and loved ones,, and fighting evil...action packed, with a love story that keeps growing stronger as others try to tear it apart because of fear and prejudice...i also love how the Carpathian people stand together for what is right and fight for each other..Christine Feehan keeps getting better and better..


    What about Robert Sarkus’s performance did you like?

    Great performance..I still think audio books with both male and female voices are the best


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    LIFEMATE


    Any additional comments?

    For Anyone starting the Dark Series, you should really start with Dark Prince... you could listen to, or read these as stand alone, but you would miss out.on so much, and trust me, when you read of the other characters, you will want.the other audio books. all these books.are great..but the last few just blow my mind . Such detail , and imagination..so enjoyable.

    "Awful narration. Story might be good, But..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator is awful and he can't even pronounce the main character's name correctly. I am very surprised by the poor choice of narrators.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Christine Feehan again?

    I would not if the same narrator was chosen again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Any of the past narrators would be great like Phil Gigante.


    Did Dark Lycan inspire you to do anything?

    Yes - to write my first review because the narration was so awful.


    Any additional comments?

    Re-do the narration! I am having a hard time listening to this book and I have been a avid listener to Christine Feehan books.
