"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.

Say something about yourself!
This is by far near the bottom, due to the poor narrator.
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.
Too many characters introduced to fast to follow :(
The character interaction was very confusing
I enjoy his voice
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.
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.
I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.
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.
*~*~* I love all books erotica and romance. *~*~*A book is my safe place.
I only have the audio..I could not be happier.
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..
Great performance..I still think audio books with both male and female voices are the best
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.
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.
I would not if the same narrator was chosen again.
Any of the past narrators would be great like Phil Gigante.
Yes - to write my first review because the narration was so awful.
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.
The one thing that drives me a little nuts about the series is the constant switching of narrators. this one definitely took me some time to get used to, although I do think he did his homework with the Carpathian pronunciations. It does help lead up to Skylar and Dimitri's story, so I would read this one first definitely. And I can't say I was bored at all during the hours I listened to it.
I did not read the print version.
Everything. This was simply a well done story.
Yes, He was Excellent
This book was great as was the rest of the series.
