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 am a big Christine Feehan fan. I’ve enjoyed every book in the dark series and always finished panting for the next one. So of course I know this was going to be a great listen. How disappointed I was. This book was literally horrible. I actually have about 45 minutes left to listen to and I can’t bring myself to do it. First, there was no real tension or conflict between the two main characters. Riley seemed to be ok with everything that Dex said. I don’t know about you but I like my relationships to be a little more interesting. Truly the only plot came from Dex chasing Mitro. I could have gotten an action book if that’s all I wanted.
I will definitely give Christine another try but truly disappointed in this instillation.
Less redundancy... It repeated its self over and over.
I like the dark series, yet this just wasn't the same as the others
I didn't feel the emotion. Nor did she impart any humor.
Very disappointed would rather have read it and not waste an audible credit on it.
The Old Ones
Phil Gigante and Jane Brown. It would have been performed better if done in the same style as Dark Slayer where the male and female characters performed together in same chapter when ever each separate voice was needed. I did not like when the female narrator spoke as Riley and Dax. Nor did I Iike it when the male narrator were the two characters voices. It would have been better if Dax was Erik Bergmann and Riley was Kristine Ryan throughout the whole story.
The story should have touched more on Mitro's story. Is Gregori any relation and if so age difference.
