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?

I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
I think this is the book that Snoopy spent so many years typing out as he sat on top of his dog house.
On the old SCTV series, the actor Joe Flaherty used to play a cheesy vampire character named Count Floyd, who spent most of his time trying to convince the audience that something totally silly was actually quite "scarrrrrry" and wiggling his eyebrows. I think the author had Count Floyd in mind when she created these characters. If she tried to make the book sound scary, it might disguise the fact that it was silly.
Unfortunately it doesn't work this way. Making the narrator speak slowly and ponderously doesn't help either.
Silly book. I didn't finish it.
I have a listening addiction.
a vampire romance novel. big disapointment. no idea it was this drivel before i used my credit. please give my credit back so i can buy a real sci fi book
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Well, I couldn't even get past the first 3 chapters...Don't waste your credit!
The only thing that could have made this a 4 or 5 star rating, would be to start over...
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.
Hola, soy India!
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.
I found that since I rarely have time to actually read, listening to books while I am busy, I can enjoy the books AND complete tasks.
I was VERY disappointed with the audio version of this book!!! More than half the book, the narrator made Raven sound as though she were crying, and a weakling!!! I bought this book, thinking it would have five additional hours of dialog. No such luck. There was a few places that included deleted dialog, but the added time was mostly due to her reading it slower!
Its a shame that Abby Craden did not read the character of Raven better, she has a nice voice, but did not use it, nor protray Raven's character as the strong woman she was in the books.
I wonder if Christine has hear this, and if so, what she thinks...
Overall I loved listening to this audio. Dark Prince is one of my absolute favorite books & is the one that introduced me to paranormal romance. There were a couple spots where they narrator mixed up who was talking (such as Mikhail speaking in Ravens voice), but otherwise it was great.
First chapter - first 1min of the audiobook. The hero talks about having read all his books, how he's lonely and can't bare his existence anymore.
This dude needs some Netflix STAT! Maybe a little chill. Maybe a little Amazon Prime.
I love all Christine Feehan books. This is by far my fave book of hers. And I'm rereading it for like the 20th time. I strongly recommend you enter the carpathian world. Her earlier books are her best.
Great narrator, good story.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
This story follows all those traditional PNR tropes.. alpha males, insta-attraction and an evil entity. It's all there, and if you are a fan of this genre, you'll enjoy the book. I always struggle with first books in a PNR series because of all the time spent on world building. But the author made sure to infuse plenty of romance. It was quite indulgent.
The book was good, wasn't fond of the narration, (Raven's voice) too whinning and breathy. Will check the narrator before buying the next in this series. Othewise, it was a good book.
