Number-one New York Times best-selling author Christine Feehan revisits and expands her classic novella Dark Descent, bringing to breathtaking new life her story of an immortal Carpathian hunter, a beautiful adventurer, and their dangerous journey toward an unforeseen destiny and an undying love.
In a cave of mystery and wonder deep in the Carpathian Mountains, bodyguard Joie Sanders encounters a most remarkable being. Proud, strong, immortal, he is called Traian - an ageless hunter locked in a life-and-death battle with enemy vampires - and he will be her salvation in a labyrinth protected by the ingenious traps of a mysterious ancient race. What awaits them in the darkness is not known, and each step could be their last - as their destined path leads them toward a fiery passion that will illuminate the perilous dark night.
Also includes the previously published Carpathian short story Dark Dream.

The explanation on Joie Sanders brother (Joeble's ) blood line.
It was a repeat of Dark Descent... Not a new book... Seems to me that you advertised it as new when it was not....
NO, had already listen to the story and plot on Dark Descent.... Wasted a credit on it
Wish I had read the summary in more detail and figured out I was re-buying two books that were on my library..... Will have to be more careful next time....
"If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be". Most of us are every day hero's. Never mind the kind. Search for more. Listen.
Christine Feehan writes interesting Carpathian stories and most of the plots change from book to book which helps to keep the series fresh and interesting.
No favorites. I like them all with the exception of the female lead as explained below in "other comments".
Yes. And a very pleasent voice she has.
I usually listen in several sittings due to my own time constraints, and wanting to give the story my full attention.
I am a little tired of the female lead characters who are starting to feel more insipid. I would like to see more fire and spice in the lead female character . A little bit of bad would be appreciated for the female to grow into and out of and utilize. Not all of the power and fire should be saved for the lead male Carpathian character. In several of Ms Feehan's earlier books there have been wonderfully complicated and sometimes imperfect female leads who are not always sugar sweet. I get that the females are the light to the male's dark. Yet nothing is all black and all white. I would like a little more stirring of the female's roll. This is of course is mine own opinion. I still enjoy the series and have read each book.
If you have already listened to Dark Decent, then you will want to hear this book. It answers some of the questions the short version left and give some much needed information. I hope Ms. Feehan also lengthens Dark Dream.
Christine never fails to draw you into her world! Absolutely amazing job as usual!
I have copies off both books. Read by others. I'm not sorry I have both copies. They are both stories about strength and honor. I never got tired of reading or listening about honor and true unconditional love with such devotion. Isn't that what every person wants ????
This book was one of the worst Carpathian books I have ever read and I have read all up to this story! Don't waste your money! Quite drawn out and totally lost me on story line!
No, she is entitled to write 1 bad book!
Nothing wrong with performance!
It feels like I have listened to this before, I know I have, although it did not show that I have listened to it before. Not upset about listening to it more than once, just upset about paying for it more than once. This is a good series, except they do not have all the book avalible, and it doesn't show this one in the series.
A lot of what was bounced around about throughout the story could've been covered in the prologue.
It was not a stand alone book. Clearly a series. So, you must buy them all or be left wanting.
She is an awesome writer. This series is setup as a sort of treasure hunt. I'd like to see it written more like a meal; with definite satisfaction after every course. If I feel myself getting full, I can always skip a course (or book) without it ruining my meal.
If I were editor, I'd be more selective in handing out time and content on biography of every single character.
