Publisher's Summary

Enter the enchanting world of the Carpathians, where dark adventure, mystery, and love await, and the desires of two daring hearts unite in one irresistible passion.

A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps to catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks for a vacation far from home.

Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. Engulfed by despair, fearful of never finding the mate who can save him from the encroaching darkness, his soul cries out in loneliness - until the day that a beautiful voice full of light and love responds, softly soothing his pain and yearning.

From the moment they meet, Raven and Mikhail are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them. But just as fate unexpectedly brings these life mates together, malevolent forces threaten to destroy them and their fragile love. Yet even if they survive, how can these two lovers - Carpathian and human - build a future together? And how can Mikhail bring Raven into his dark world without extinguishing her beautiful goodness and light?

    "Don't waste your credit!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Well, I couldn't even get past the first 3 chapters...Don't waste your credit!
    Sorry...
    The only thing that could have made this a 4 or 5 star rating, would be to start over...

    "ugh waste of a credit"

    Cliche romance novel. Maybe its the way Abby read the book. Maybe its the way Christine wrote it. But I it made me want to blow my brains out as I listened to it.

    Story
    "Awful reader, couldn't finish it."
    What would have made Dark Prince better?

    A better reader might have helped me finish the book


    Has Dark Prince turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I usually like this author, but will not buy any read by this person


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden?

    Tom Stechschulte often reads for this author and does an excellent job


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The reader droned through the prose with the sepulchral tones one might expect from a very bad, old-fashioned preacher, but hammed-up the dialogue so that one might feel they were listening to a conversation between "Lurch" and "Tweetie-pie".

    Story
    "Mindless, redundant drivel. Awful."

    If you like your author to repeat themselves over and over for hours unended, this is the book for you. By the time I got to the end of it- I wanted desperately to find the creator of this disaster and slap her senseless. The constant drone of the characters poorly formed romance, under a layer of preternatural guise made me want to vomit. The only reason I finished this book is because I got it for free as my first credit purchase. The readers reviews and ratings are highly dissappointing and I hope to never encounter anything this incredibly awful ever again.

    Story
    "Different"

    I love books that take a different spin on vampires. Especially ones that leave the dark evil vampires but then have others of a different race that are similar but more good guys. I love books set in the Carpathian mountains, and I love strong heroines, this should make it that I would love this book. I didn't. I enjoyed it and it has a excellent story to it. I found I enjoyed it greatly with two exceptions. There were several area where I found myself saying "get on with it all ready" at these places the descriptions were long, detailed and unnecessary. And secondly there was the Strong Heroine, modern day independent woman, with the ability to read minds. This should be awesome. Strong and independent does not = stupid, and a strong & intelligent woman does not disobey in very stupid ways, when they know it could mean their life, especially a woman so adept and reading minds and yet so naive and stupid about the gravity of human nature. She was not believable in the least. I could see her arguing and being pissy, but not going off and doing stupid things just to prove she was independent and strong, and every single time nearly getting herself and the man, she will do anything to keep happy, killed. Also she tracks serial killers for the police and yet she blatantly by thought and yet she constantly misjudges everyone's actions and thoughts and defends them because "they can't be evil". I really had issues with this woman. If she had been made slightly stronger and less whinny I would have enjoyed this story to the fullest, for the story behind the Carpathians and Vampires is EXCELLENT

    Story
    "Good introduction to the series. Weak protafonist"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Would have liked Raven to be a bit stronger as a character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack has just the perfect fit of bad boy, sweet and sexy. Will enjoy seeing him find his lifemate.


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

    Good naration and performance.


    Did Dark Prince inspire you to do anything?

    Sure. Get more of the series.

    "Hated it"
    What would have made Dark Prince better?

    A plot, likable characters, less stupid sex scenes. It is the worst book I have gotten through audible so far. i am amazed that it was published at all and that audible chose to record it. Shame on everyone.,


    What could Christine Feehan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Character development. Editing.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Raven had a simpering, annoying voice.


    What character would you cut from Dark Prince?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    this has encouraged me to write a book of my own since I see that anything can get published. I resent that you wasted my money and my time.

    Story
    "Boring"
    What would have made Dark Prince better?

    I don't like to talk badly about any authors work as I know they put a lot of time and effort into their stories. This seemed to have potential but as I listened, this story never really caught my attention. I like passionate stories where you can feel the emotions of the characters and I didn't get any of this from the characters in this story.


    What could Christine Feehan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The Heroin in this story seemed weak although she was trying to portray her as strong. I couldn't see her this way. It didn't help that her husband, mate, whatever he was to her saw her as fragile and weak. I would have liked to see a stronger female role.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators voice was great except when she portrayed the heroin. Although I guess it was fitting as the heroin did seem whiny and weak and that is what the narrator portrayed. Her voice became so irritating whenever it was the Heroin's part. I didn't finish the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Prince?

    Honestly I don't believe in cutting scenes from a book. It could play some importance later on.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read a Christine Feehan book before and enjoyed it and that was why I picked this book. I wanted to start with the first of the series. I'm having second thought's about reading this series though. I was going to give it until the third book to decide if I would continue with the series but I don't want to feel like I'm wasting credits. We'll see.
