A dark storm is on the horizon.... Return to Christine Feehan’s “steamy and dreamy” (Publishers Weekly) world of her New York Times best-selling Carpathian novels as roiling passions collide in a perfect storm of dangerous desire that only a precious few can hope to outrun....
Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries.
But there are some things that never change.
His name is Mitro, the vampire Dax had hunted all these long centuries. Second in command to the prince of the Carpathian people he is the epitome of everything malevolent, and perpetrator of one of the most shocking killing sprees known to man - and beast. Even his friends and family weren’t safe from Mitro’s bloodlust. Neither was Mitro’s lifemate, Arabejila, an extraordinary woman with extraordinary gifts.
But now that Dax has re-emerged, so too has Mitro. The ultimate battle between good and evil has been re-engaged. Between Dax and Mitro, a violent game has begun - one that has marked Riley Parker, the last descendent of Arabejila, as the reward.

I would listen to the book again because I enjoyed the narration, the characters and the story.
The smooth timber of their voices, the accents, I just loved everything about how this book was narrated.
The Dragon Who Loved Me
It has been a while so I re-listened to the first 22 books in the Dark Hunter series to become familiar with all the characters. After listening to all of them non stop, I realized the stories were so similar in the way they flowed. This book seemed to be different from the first 22 books in the series. The first 22 books were boy meets life mate, boy converts life mate and then boy fights battle. This story seemed to evolve with time. There was a lot of substance to the story and the way the story flowed was a nice change to the previous books.
the next chapter!!
how to choose one from a cast of great one???
Erik gave each their own voice and part of the story..... all to good to pick one...
Oh!!! yea baby!!!!!
You can't go wrong with Christine Feehan's books. Every thing you want in a "good" book she gives to you.. you will not be disappointed in any way!!! jump right in and take a deep breath hold on and enjoy!!!!
This book is so good I'm not sure where to start. The concept is novel the characters just get better and better. There seems to be a surprising love interest for jubal, I doubt few of us saw that coming. I love Christeen Feehan - she just keeps surprising fans. Her abilities are awsome. Each offering gets better and better and the choice of narrators is great too.
Yes I would listen again. I liked the new characters and direction.
The way she blended in some of the old characters with new ones.
When the Carpathian and Dragon realized they were not alone.
I liked this book because it was not the same old boy meets girl type as some of the others. I mean he found his mate but this was like a stumble in the dark type of thing.
I love books, it's my great escape.
I have been waiting for this book for a long time. I was totally excited to download this one. Sometimes when the anticipation is high you get a little let down. It did not happen this time. I have all the books in the Dark series. One thing that I like about Feehan’s books is that she knows how to work in adventure, drama, and still have those hot sexy moments. I fell in love with the story of Dax and Riley. Now for the die heart Dark series fans like me…Feehan sheds more light into the mystery of why the Carpathian women have such a hard time with child birth, she introduces several intriguing missing elements, which just happens to make one of my favorite love scenes in the book. Believe me, you will never thing of flowers the same way again. It took me a while to write this review because sometimes I like to listen to the good ones twice. This was a good one!
Christine Does it Again w/the Carpathian Series. I've been waiting almost 2 1/2 years for her to write the next series w/the Carpathains and it was worth the wait. The Narrators did a great job as well! Christine Feehan always (in my opinion) writes a good book and I really hope I don't have to wait long before she continues with the Carpathians or Leapords series.
Jubal, cant wait to see how he turns out.
Not that I can remember.
I guess it was... what is next???
I really love Christine Feehan books, and this one was no different, but my absolute favs are the ones where all of the characters get together for a common goal... I kept waiting for that to happen in this one...
I am a huge C.F. fan and have listened to most of her books available on Audible including this series which have all been brilliant from book 1 - so if you haven't listened to any others in the series then I suggest you start there and work your way up to this book otherwise you will miss so much about the Carpathian's.
Dark Storm was enjoyable, entertaining and had some really tense moments, it will have your interest from the start. I did however, find it a bit gloomy and slightly depressing, coupled with this, Riley and Dax fell in love from the very first moment they saw each other which wasn't until quite a long way into the first half therefore there was no 'drama' to their romance at all. So unfortunately, for those reasons, I would have to say that this is my least favourite out the entire series.
Worth of credit? Yes definitely, but I would just have liked a 'pinch' of something more to have been able to give it 5 stars.
I have really missed the Dark Series and this book is well worth the wait. The narrators, Erik Bergmann and Kristine Ryan make the characters come to life. This is one of the best of the series. Thank you audible. Special thanks to the narrators for making it happen.
Oh yes. I enjoyed the story. I usually like Ms Feehans musings of Carpathians vs vampires vs human demented terminators. Please I would like the female character to have a little more, no, a lot more bounce, fire, and humor. I rank this book up there in the top fifty.
The dragon awakes. The Carpathian quakes.
Overall performance by these two exceptional narrators really awesome.
More made my blood run cold. The way Anabell was killed.
I hope to see more of this series. I would love to see the main characters not get along so well all the darn time. It's so fantaC. :) I haven't seen Ms Feehan put a Fairy into the mix yet. That might be fun.
