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.

    "NARRATOR PUT ME TO SLEEP!!"
    Where does Dark Magic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Thast a hard question to answer the story was super great, but the narrator put me to sleep. Sean Crisden was absolutely boring. He turned a Great story into mundane listening. I am glad I only used the audio book re reading in this case listening. I have read the actual book many many times. Dark Magic is a Very Good story!! But dump the Narrator!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gregori of course becasue if you read the series Gregori is Gregori LOL!!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get another Narrator!! Use a male and female!


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Audible Please be careful when choosing a Narrator. Some people have clear voices but they are not a narrator!! Sean Crisden is one of those. He put me to sleep with a story I love!!

    "Intense"
    What made the experience of listening to Dark Magic the most enjoyable?

    The main character, The Dark One, Gregori, is intense, in total control of his world and is fascinating for the reader. As his world goes from grey to color, from unfeeling to feeling, the reader is taken through an intense, thrilling story laced with love and humor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Dark One


    Did Sean Crisden do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I know most readers would think his performance was too monotone but he is telling the story of a creature who has walked the earth for over a 1000 years and is in full control of everything and everyone around him. He has not really been challenged to be anything else until his lifemate demands otherwise, then the humor begins.


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

    Not able to do that but yes I could sit and listen to the whole story in one sitting if given the chance.


    Any additional comments?

    The Dark series is not dark, rather the series tell of a struggle among a species to survive, to protect, one with honor and integrity. I am thoroughly enjoying the whole series.

    "Questionable.."

    Like all of Feehans books in the Dark Series, this one kept you on the edge of your seat. The storyline is good.. though after reading my 3rd book in this series... I am over it.
    These stories are a bit romantic and always at the end of the story everything kind of falls into place and it turns out okay. With this book it was no different but what I don't like is the way these Carpathian men treat their lifemates, especially in the sex scenes (sorry, I don't consider this as making love), and believe me.. there are plenty of them.
    In this particular book it was extremely violent, Gregori was so twisted and dark that the first time he had sex with Savannah, who was still a virgin.. he almost killed her and to make matters worse he did this without her consent. to me this is rape.
    I am surprised nobody ever commented on this before in reviewing her books in this series.
    Nonetheless, it is a good, easy read and if you enjoy this particular genre, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
