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.

Is this storyline has just become very repetitive.
She's lost the thrill in the mystery and her writing.
All this scene our continued from one book to another it's time to end the series
Only if they want incredibly detailed sexual episodes.
I have always liked Christine Feehan. I haven't listened to one in a long time - so that may be the issue. I loved how the story started and was really thrilled till about 1/3 of the way through. Then as the 2 main characters become closer and closer (physically and emotionally), the steam just keeps rising. If you enjoy the details of the sexual exploits, you will love this one. If you like her stories, it is hard to get through the exploits this time to get to the story.
No. The author reused words and phrases too many times. The narrators tried, but it was too painful to listen.
Christine Feehan has been a fav for years. After reading and rereading all the previous "Dark" series, I was bitterly disappointed in this offering.
I just read a couple of books from this series while on vacation. Aside from the repeated backdrop of violence toward women, I enjoyed them. This one was a different story. Doubt, insecurity, & angst take up at least 1/3 of the story. I found myself saying "just get on with it' often & eventually having to fast forward because I couldn't take it anymore. I lost interest way before the end. Thus I am returning it. There are over 20 books in the series. I enjoy different characters being developed throughout a series. However, I think the author has drawn this well dry.
I find it hard to believe that others gave this one a good rating. I chose this book over others in the series because of that. Yecch.
Maybe older ones from this series - nothing newer.
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.
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...
Returning to the Carpathian world. Christine has woven so many different characters into an evolving storyline. It's nice to meet new characters and revisit older ones.
Loved the dragon
Loved the courtship ritual. It brought new hope for the Carpathians.
I had hard time with the female narrator. I did get used to her. Of all the narrators that have done Christine's books Phil is my favorite. But Erik does a great job too!!!!
It is not among the best of the Carpathian books. The story is only a so so and really doesn't flow like the other books.
No I wouldn't. The duel narrations is annoying . The story is longer than it really needs to be and is not all together that interesting.
I hope I don't have to.
Shorter story. Linking it a little closer to the Carpathians. And having someone else narrate the story.
Not worth the credit
