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?

    "not able to go beyond the 1st of the 3 sections"

    I was really looking forward to this book. It started great and within literally 5 min the hero was in love and in another 2 minutes the heroin was returning the sentiments. Oh ppppppppppp--lease. Soooo goofy. Literally nothing happened the entire first third. A little sex and I guess we should all be good to go. No twists necessary after that. I really tried but I was board out of my mind. So decided to stop torturing myself. I deleted the book from my phone. Phew. Now on to something with an actual story.

    "Good book"

    "Could have been so much better"

    To start with...the narrator was absolutely fantastic! I have a soft spot for Phil Gigante but Abby Craden was even better because she was able to do an excellent job even with the male voices. FANTASTIC!
    The story line was good and could have been great. Truthfully, if I hear "possession" one more time - I am going to puke! If you're a female who enjoys being "possessed" by a male, then go for it. It irked me to no end. The heroine is smart but stupid, Mikael gentle but possessive. How idiotic. She kept saying she has a mind but acted like a stupid ditsy girl. He kept saying he wants to accommodate her independence but when it came down to it, it was "do as I say or I will take over and do it for you!"
    I really like the story but was greatly annoyed by the two main characters. I had also listened to another Feehan novel (out of sequence) with a similar annoyance ( so, I haven't learned my lesson!) and this one seemed to be the first of the series. But, it was added very recently. It made the whole storyline a little confusing for me.
    Overall, if you can manage the cons, there is none better than Feehan to write those steamy scenes. But, beware of being 'possessed'.

    "Induces excessive eye rolling"

    Although I have enjoyed other books written by Christine Feehan, I couldn't recommend this to anyone. It was honestly difficult to finish. I think the storyline had great potential, but unfortunately, the main characters never gained appeal to me. At first I thought it was just the narrator's voice for Raven (the female protagonist) that was grating on my nerves, but after a while, I realized it was just the character herself. If there was a stupid choice to be made, Raven predictably made it every time. Trying to understand her reasoning (her compassion for others, her belief in free will, etc.) didn't help at all. She came across as ridiculous damsel, who was always in distress. And the male lead, as attractive as he was written, lost some of his appeal to me, because of his willingness to cater to and coddle such a dolt! So disappointed. Don't waste your credit here. If you want to listen to Christine Feehan, I'd recommend the Ghostwalker series over this.

    "Good but...."

    I'm a guy who can enjoy an occasional romance and this book is a good one, occasionally. The sex is drawn out, overblown, full of every cliche imaginable and hard to get through sometimes. Come to think of it, that describes much of the book. The premise is interesting though and keeps me listening. Have large doubts about making it "deep into her velvet sheath" of a series.

    "Utterly Supurb!!!"

    Like the last reviewer said Juanita Parker didn't do this series justice. Abby Craden does a fantastic job, and she can actually say 'Gregori' instead of 'Gregory' unlike her predecessor. Is there any chance she could re-do Ms Parkers efforts??

    "The 2nd time around is just as good or better"

    Christine Feehan is Awsome, I did not think she could make this story any better, but I was wrong. The narrator is great too, you will not be disappointed.

    "Fantastic!!!"

    A narrator can really ruin a book and that is what Juanita Parker did to the first few books in the dark series. Abby Craden did a much better job and I really enjoyed listening to this book again!!!

    "Boring"

    The best thing about this book was the narrator. Smooth as silk voice. The rest was just well, boring. Whiny heroine, arrogant male hero and just endless dialogue that really didn't move me emotionally or entertain me with the plot. I know that's asking a lot of PNR BUT JR Ward and Jeanine Frost seem to manage it.

    Story
    "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.

    "disappointed!"

    I've read a few of her books but confess that I tried 5 times to get into this and found myself more and more annoyed each time. The girl Raven drove me nuts, she has less spine than Bella Swan who at least had the idea of what was going on, but not this one. Sadley I have consigned this book to the back bedroom shelf to gather dust!
