Dark Magic: Dark Series, Book 4

Young Savannah Dubrinsky was a mistress of illusion, a world-famous magician capable of mesmerizing millions. But there was one - Gregori, the Dark One - who held her in terrifying thrall. Whose cold silver eyes and heated sensuality sent shivers of danger, of desire, down her slender spine. With a dark magic all his own, Gregori - the implacable hunter, the legendary healer, the most powerful of Carpathian males - whispered in Savannah's mind that he was her destiny.

Publisher's Summary

Young Savannah Dubrinsky was a mistress of illusion, a world-famous magician capable of mesmerizing millions. But there was one - Gregori, the Dark One - who held her in terrifying thrall. Whose cold silver eyes and heated sensuality sent shivers of danger, of desire, down her slender spine.

With a dark magic all his own, Gregori - the implacable hunter, the legendary healer, the most powerful of Carpathian males - whispered in Savannah's mind that he was her destiny. That she had been born to save his immortal soul. And now, here in New Orleans, the hour had finally come to claim her. To make her completely his. In a ritual as old as time...and as inescapable as eternity.

    "Great Book, Abysmal Performance"
    What disappointed you about Dark Magic?

    The performance. This is a dramatic, intense book, where even a simply 'good' narrator would be greatly challenged. This is NOT a good narrator. Not for romance, and probably not for any kind of fiction, which requires being part actor.


    What other book might you compare Dark Magic to and why?

    Glancing at my bookshelf, I'd say the closest by another author, at least in tone, is Karen Marie Moning's THE DARK HIGHLANDER. Both stories revolve around a dark a hero, who hasn't always made the best choices in the past, and is now struggling to hold onto the remains of their honor despite terrible circumstances.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    At about 3 hours in I can safely say this: The reading tempo is repetitive and irritating. The emotional tempo is a constant, sleepy monotone. The characterization, while it receives +1 for differentiating between characters, gets a big -10 for how poorly they're handled. Listening to it is a real struggle - I end up bouncing between utter boredom and disgusted irritation. I will be returning this audiobook and its sequel by the same narrator. I will not be purchasing any others by this narrator unless a sample shows dramatic improvement.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money/credits.

    Many say I am easily entertained because I have given many 5star ratings, but I KNOW what I like, have my favorites, and choose accordingly.

    "IMHO...I ENJOYED THIS NARRATOR MORE THAN ORIGINAL"

    I love this series. My only complaint...Gregori...should br pronounced...European Greg-OR-ee...not American Gregory...GREG-er-y. Anyone else agree?

    ...just wondering if the series is going anywhere. Fingers crossed. I hope to find more interaction amongst the Carpathian in future installments.

    "Was good but...."

    It was good but the narrator made Savannah sound like a nasally whiny twit. It was very annoying.

    "love the story - prefer original narrator!"
    What disappointed you about Dark Magic?

    Sean Crisden sucks - why would anyone choose a monotone narrator??


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Crisden?

    Juanita Parker's performance was 100% better than Sean Crisden!!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment!


    Any additional comments?

    Great story but harder then heck to get through due to narrator!

    "Same old, same."

    I've read all the books in the series, so far and they're starting to run together. Although the writing is good, the storyline has become more than monotonous. Carpathian meets life mate, life mate wants no part of being tied down and losing her independence, life mate reluctantly falls in love and gives into Carpathian male who tells her what she can and cannot do, blah, blah, blah! I mean, come on already?? Write a story line where the life mate actually wants the male and the male is reluctant. Or that they equally want each other and are torn apart, SOMETHING! ANYTHING, except the same old, worn out story line.

    "Liked the story, not the narrator!"

    Excited to hear the story of one of my fav characters Gregori and learn more about him.

    Gregori and Savannah characters deserved a stronger narrator. They appeared diminished as read by this person and it took away from their story.

    "Mixed Feelings"

    I loved the story line. The thing that really ruined this for me was the narrator . He was awful! I found myself rolling my eyes at his "portrayal" of Gregory. Some narrators have it and bring the story to life. This one didn't. Other than that I loved the story, Gregory's story. I recommend this book though just not the narrator. Read it, maybe.

    "Best of the Best"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Must be an old fan of author as this was written early in this series. Must love hunkie dominant elegant men to love this story as I do! I waited years for this recording of this book. Audible or author was smart enough to re record using Sean as the woman reader was awful the first time this was recorded.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Magic?

    I love the last couple of chapters as they have stayed with me over the years.


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

    Sean, AKA John Dan miller, main stream/classic reads & who recorded Nora Roberts the pagan stone brings this classic to life as he did for NR book. His recordings with Tatiana Sokolov are not to be missed. Hot! Glad I recognized Dan voice in this book as I have missed out on many of Sean's recordings. Darn these also known as names. I have requested that audible put out a list so I don't waste listening time trying to figure out the A.K.A. Name! I know classic authors want a different name associated with their titles, what, don't they think us audible listens can figure out a reader after we buy hundreds of listens!


    Any additional comments?
