All new from the number-one New York Times best-selling author. As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.
The answer awaits him back home, in Peru, in the betrayal of a woman who is readying her trap, in the vengeance of an old enemy, in the inevitable consequences of a bloody family legacy - and in the deliverance of a lifemate he never could have imagined.
Love in vein: listen to more Carpathian tales in Christine Feehan's Dark Series.

It was OK, but was longer than it needed to be. I was looking forward to Zacarias' story, but his story was drawn out, a lot of repeated dialogue. The story made you feel a little like you rewound the MP3 player because you heard the same story line numberous times. Maybe there is a minimum on pages/hours required by the publisher to account for the repeated information. The book could have been maybe 5 hours shorter. I have been a long time fan of the Dark Series, Drake Sisters, and Ghostwalkers, but I am starting to see a trend of the books becoming drawn out. I would like to see more interaction with the other Carpathian's like in previous stories, this would better fill the space than the repetitive lines.
I loved my first audible book even if I don't love the book I listened too.I wanted there to be more interaction between him and his brothers The whole thing about him only seeing color when they are connected was different.I liked that she made the characters flawed.I was looking for a little more out of this book but as always i'm looking forward to the next one and I hope to be surprised after all these book are not cheap and refunds are not availible
I cant believe this over descriptive drivel was published. I am disappointed I wished I save my credit for something better. No action whatsoever, just stagnate and boring. I really hate to say this but Christine Feehan needs to hang it up on the dark series, if all her books going to be run on sentences. I hate to say this though, the Narrators are absolutely awesome, hence the 5 stars for performance.
not the same as the first books
half to the book was sex, not enough story.
I love books, it's my great escape.
Bravo, Christine Feehan you have done it again. The story line was intriguing, entertaining, and held my attention the entire length of the book. An added surprise was that this audio book had two readers. In my opinion both readers did an excellent job. In fact, I just finished the book and have started listening all over again; just to make sure I did not miss anything. LOL.
I Love love love, Christine Feehan and the Dark Series. And I have been waiting for this book fom the moment I met Zac in a book WAY back when... so why wasn't there more dialogue???? I was so over what they were
I haven't read a book in forever!
If you are a fan of Christine Feehan you will enjoy this book. One element that I really like that there were two readers.
I love to read anything and everything! Audio is perfect in my car or earphones. I'd rather read than just about anything else.
This is my 4th time listening to this story because I love it! Most of the story's of the Carpathians are about strong men and women. This is no different but it shows just how "strong" and wild Zacharais really is. Even when you think he's changed, his character holds true and there isn't a miraculous change that overcomes him. He doesn't suddenly become a nice, mild mannered person. I think I like that best. He stays rough and dominant and Margarita struggles to find him loveable at one point.
It's a great story and I adored the characters. The story never bored me, though there was quite a bit of soul searching involved and that usually has me fast forwarding through it. But
in this case, it was necessary for the development of the characters and story. And-it was key in understanding the darkness in Zacharais.
The narrators were amazing! So perfect and kept all the voices straight! It's so awesome to have the story read in his/her voice. Makes it so much more enjoyable. Kudos to them both!
I've either read or listened to the entire series as it stands right now but I always come back to this one.
Worth the credit. You won't be disappointed!
Finally,Zacarius' story is told. I felt this was a little bit too long in the tooth, plot wise but still a good story. Margarita was the stronger character and a delight. Zacarius was still his arrogant self but Margarita was more than a match for him. If you are a true Feehan fan you will like this addition to the series.
I enjoy this series by Christine Feehan. By far Zacarius is my very favorite Carpathian. It is a great story of how we can have tunnel vision and become disconnected with the world around us; then bang your blindsided and must choose what to do.
