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 really like thrillers. My favorite type of movie or book is one that has a unique perspective instead of a different version of the same story repeated by many different writers throughout the years. Many books are fine for a one-time listen, but to find one that's good enough to listen to again and again is a rare find indeed!!

    "BLEECH!!!"

    I couldn't even get through part one!!

    The reader's voice sounded good on the sample, but when listening to the book, it would rise and fall -- and this was when she wasn't doing any of the character's voices!! She did pretty good on the two main character's voices, but she still kept raising and lowering her voice so often that I kept having to adjust the volume. This caused great distraction and eventually frustration!!

    Then came the sex. Oh, brother!! I have never understood why authors want to get so graphic. Let the tension build, let them start kissing and then move on to another scene!! Unless you're into porn . . . I'm not and that's where I had to stop listening!!

    Bleech!!!

    Story
    "Sex, Sex and more Sex"

    Actually, that part put me off a bit. At times it seemed like it was all about bed play. I am not a prude and don't mind some explicid descriptions, yet these seemed repetative and, for my part, unimagenative.

    OK, that out of the way, the story of a race of people who may have been the source of the Vampire legend, how they live and how they can turn into the ugly type of vampire and how there is only two choice, Die or... well that's the story.

    I wouldn't read a 2nd book in this series, but i well enjoyed this book. I don't know if i will look at a lot of books from this author.

    "Weak Whinny Heroine but great Story and Characters"

    Dark Series was recommended to me by a fellow Listen-aholic. I am on book 7 in the series. I almost put the series down several times becasue I found myself driving yelling at the speakers in my car on my long commute. I could not stand the Heroines in book 1 and 2, sometimes... there are times that they were great and other times I wanted to shake them until they "cowgirled up" and put thier "big girl panties on and deal"!!!!

    Okay so if you like Stong women characters do listen to book 1, just so you get the back story... then skip to book 4, Gregory and Savannah... You'll be captivated and drawn into the series without feeling lost.

    When I get caught up I might go back and finish book 2, 3 and 4 only with plenty of medication to dull the Whinny Woman syndrome. These ladies need spend some time with a stong woman like; Jane Yellowrock, any of JR Ward Heroines, Sherrilyn Kenyon's Heroines, or Alexia Tarabotti the Parasol Protectorate herself...

    Story
    "Worth Every Minute...I can't wait to hear more."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Prince to be better than the print version?

    Christine Feehans books are extremely full of complex emotion, imagery, and seductive anticipation. There is no other writer of paranormal romance books like her. Her characters are compelling characters who do not let adversity hamper them. These couples are highly sexual and emotionally stimulating. They draw you into the story, and hold you for the next book. Her books are always good reads.


    Have you listened to any of Abby Craden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first of Abby Craden's first performance for me, and I would say she did a good job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.

    "Love this series...not the narrators"

    I love the dark series. I own all of the books in audible format and I have listened to both versions of this story. The first narrator mispronounced names and mangled the accents. This narrator talked WAY too slowly. I'm sure it was supposed to add more drama, but all it did was make me want to sleep. She also made Raven sound insipid.

    Christine feehan Absolutely! Craden??? Never!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Prince?

    "Too whiny female character"

    I just don't like whiny characters. Peirod.... Raven was whining for all 17 hours and 54 min....
    I think Abby is fantastic, really loved her voice and will look for more books read by her. Somebody mentioned that Abby made Raven whiny, but I completely disagree - in every dialog Raven complains... I will give a try for couple more books in these series to give a fair chance before I give up. I really hope the story will get better and characters more interesting and less shallow. Maybe, just try Ghostalker instead...

    "Great Story, BAD performance"
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Abby Craden?

    I WILL purchase more books by Ms. Feehan, hard copy and audible. She is great. I will NOT ever invest in another performance by Ms. Craden.


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

    Phil Gigante or even Anne Flosnik.


    Any additional comments?

    I read and listen to all kinds of books, from S.Kenyon, to A.Quick, to S.Berry to C.Cussler, etc... and Ms. Feehan's books are always good, but I couldn't even make it through the first chapter with this narrator and will not purchase anything else read by her.
