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?

    Nothing


    What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?

    Not enough plot. The girl was an idiot. The "prince" wasn't interesting at all.


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

    Don't know


    What character would you cut from Dark Prince?

    Couldn't get into it enough to care.

    Couldn't even get through half of it.

    Story
    "This Book's Melodramatic, But it Gets Better Later"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I made myself finish this book because I thought the plot had potential and I have read books farther down the sreies that I did like. I bought this book to give me missing background details on characters who showed up in the book I read. The hunt for those details was what kept me going through this book.


    If you’ve listened to books by Christine Feehan before, how does this one compare?

    This is my least favourite of the five I've read so far. But, I read the other four, so maybe it was that old clash between the naration and the picture already set in my mind.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The female lead was supposed to be American born and raised, but the narator gave her a strange English as a second language accent. That, added to a voice sounding like a whiney Marilyn Monroe, made me wish I could skip the parts when she spoke.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Wait for the DVD so you can fast forward through the anoying parts.


    Any additional comments?

    There WAS wonderful world building, great character development, subtle insights into the connections between characters who will star in future volumes. Those hiden gems, which were thankfully as plentifull as easter eggs at an indulgent grandparent's house, were what kept me coming back for more. Thankfully I started reading around five books into the series, so I was hooked on a very well written book with detailed caracter development. If this audio book had been my first exposure to the series, I probably would never have gotten to that book.

    If you're like me, then I suggest you jump ahead a few book to where I know it's much better, then back track for the details you want further explination on.

    Story
    "I couldn't bring myself to finish the book."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book gives a incredibly in depth look into the thought process and emotional turmoil of a character thrown into a completely different world. The emotions are realistic and someone who is interested in fantasy with the psychological reality mixed in may like this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Christine Feehan again?

    I might try to give her another try. I have not liked some series from an author and love others, so I wouldn't rule it out. Feehan writes an intriguing story and the story had promise but the overly indepth descriptions of the main character's mind just became tedious.


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

    Craden's performance was good and her voices were dynamic. I would likely listen to another book she narrated. My only issue with this performance was the high pitched voice she used for the main character Raven. Due to the sheer amount of internal angst Raven expresses. That particular voice became almost painful. This was more likely due to the story than narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    it had a promising story and the other characters were intriguing. I was interested in Freehan's take on the vampire origins and myth, as it was a different take then the usual fare. Also, it was refreshing to see someone react a little more realistically to coming face to face with a supernatural being. Unfortunately, the author was just too detailed in expressing emotions and so repetitive, that the good aspects were overpowered by the tedium.

    "Not a mystery novel"

    The narrator was good, but the story was horrible. Felt like a sleazy paperback novel. No mystery, very little excitement, lots of sex.

    "Masterpiece...."
    What did you love best about Dark Prince?

    What is not to love in this masterpiece work of Art? I read this book a long time ago. I am a big fan of the series until it became flat. This is the first book in the series, and I was wowed by the plot, especially it's uniqueness. Mikhail and Raven are perfect together. The action started innocuous enough until it reached a crescendo. I love the diction, the theme, the humor and best of all the depth Christine Feehan gave to the hero and heroine. When you read some of the trashy books out there these days, it is good to appreciate a work well done and well written like this.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Mikhail. He is sex wrapped in a likeable character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Raven was rescued from dying by Mikhail, Gregory and Co.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Raven was kidnapped by that evil vampire. Mikhail, warrior that he is fell completely apart. Touching.

    Story
    "Disappointing Listen"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book was okay but did not hold my attention. The biggest issue was the voice of the woman who performed the book. It actually was a voice that grated on me and I could not believe they used such a poor narrator for the part she was reading.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was an okay ending.


    What didn’t you like about Abby Craden’s performance?

    Wrong person for the book, I think


    Do you think Dark Prince needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It needs a lot of work if they do a follow-up. It is not a cliff hanger and quite predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    No not really

    I had read the entire series. This time I'm listening. Loved it. The narrator really made this story come alive. I'm on the the next.

    "Good story could have been better"

    This was a very good story I would say it is worth a credit at parts it was a little slow going sometimes a bit repetitive but it is a new twist on the vamp tails and stories. But as I said it is a long audio but I believe the reason it is so long is because it is a little bit repetitive at some points they just kept reiterating the same information again and again and just new ways which irritated me a little bit and the heroin though she is supposed to be strong and yet at the same time it independent woman at sometimes was downright whiny and that was annoying. But I did enjoy the overall story and the narrator was great and her reading so I do find the series interesting I do find it well worth the credit and I would continue the series.
