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?

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "It was a dark and stormy night ..."

    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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "This was a disappointment"
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Abby Craden?

    I honestly wish I could get my money/credit back for this book. It was confusing, scrambled, and just generally ALL OVER the place. It jumped into the plot with no build up, suddenly this girl that hates contact is over dramatically driven to contact and be with this strange man, the drama was off. I was just overall displeased with this book. I won't be buying any more of the series. I spent most of the story rolling my eyes.


    What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?

    The odd plot. The over use of the word "males", "females", and "our people"


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Less whining when in the girl role.

    "Horrible Reading"
    What disappointed you about Dark Prince?

    The reader's interpretation of the character's made them weak and whiny;it was distracting to the storyline. Christine writes very strong female and male leads not desperate ones. I had heard great things about this series but now I guess I will read them on my Kindle.


    What other book might you compare Dark Prince to and why?

    none


    Would you be willing to try another one of Abby Craden’s performances?

    Never


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

    Disappointment

    no


    Which character – as performed by Abby Craden – was your favorite?

    "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

    "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.
