"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.

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.
I would have loved to listen to Phil again. He uses accents and inflections with his voice that allow you to identify and visualize the characters.
This is a good return to the older characters. But I miss the accents of the Carpathian people. When you have so many books read with these accents, it changes the way you see them now with American accents.
It's hard to say. I would maybe recommend as a hardcover read but not in audio format. If I recommended this book I would encourage a friend to start at the beginning of the series.
It does not compare to any of the previous Dark Series books. The storyline was shaky and the wording she used didn't seem like her usual style of writing. Phil Gigante was an excellent narrator and Robert Sarkus's narration seems suitable for children's books but not this genre.
I didn't like his pronunciation of some of the wording. His voice wasn't smoky or sensual. I know very little about the Romanian dialect but I know for certain his mispronounced some of the terminology.
No it was not.
Ms. Feehan has done it again. Proving that good things come to those who wait. The aunt's stories so far are worth the wait from what they endured and the males chosen to stand with them. You will not be disappointed and it is filled with a sense of the community and a society that is thriving and rebuilding.
tatianna's fascination with the fire at the bar.
bland, annoying, boring
some parts of story were very boring, and i'm not sure I like the direction mrs feehan is taking the story. after all the whole premise of the series is that carpathians are the biggest baddest warriors on the planet, so to find out there is another predator higher on the food chain is disconcerting. but I suppose she had to do something to freshen up the somewhat repetitive storyline. and I was disappointed by the cliff hanger ending. but it did hold my interest mostly, so I will purchase the next installment. I did like that so many of the characters from previous novels featured so prominently in the story.
Not my favorite of the Carpathian books but Dark Lycan is a great read. I really enjoyed Fenris Dalka and Tatijana's story and will enjoy listening to it again.
I loved Tatijana's boldness and strong character. Near the beginning when she gets irritated with the humans who are hiding in the woods, had me laugh out loud.
Enjoyed the narrator's voices for the many characters. I thought only a male reader would not do justice to this book but Robert Sarkus did a great job.
A little confused about Tatijana and her background. Since she was also a decendant of the powerful Mage, I was disappointed that she limited herself to Dragon and Human forms but lacked Mage magic. I don't know if it's because the magic would not work on the Lycan.
