In Dark Lycan, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In Dark Wolf, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death.
Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming…
No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri - as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true. Whatever the risk.

I've been waiting for this book to come out for so long. I'm a little disappointed that it wasn't a longer story. But it's a good read and I have always enjoyed her stories especially this particular series.
first I want to start by stating that I think I would have enjoyed it better had I read it or there were different narrators. The female narrator made Skyler sound like she was in her forties and while Skyler is mature for a 19 year old she is still a nineteen-year-old it should sound a lot more like 1. The narrator doing Dimitri voice I wasn't quite fond of except I did like how he was on Paul and Joseph. Pretty much everybody else but Dimitri I think my biggest problem is he could not pronounce the names and it just grinded on my nerves. The female narrator was my biggest pet peeve though and the biggest one I struggled with. the book was good I like that the story developed Skyler and Joseph and Paul's relationship allowed us to see where it had developed. I like how it showed more of her power and what she can do. I just feel like it jumped too fast from her not wanting anything to do with Dimitri and being scared comma too them being fully committed to each other to the point that she would even make love with him even though she has a terrible sexual history. Sindel couldn't even get over her one rape incident but you're telling me Skyler got over her numerous sex abuse sex traffic trafficking incidents from when she was a child. Not likely.
Okay so I still love Dark Celebration but Dark Wolf just bumped it to second place! Oh my goodness! This was a wonderful story. It was such a joy to see Skyler come into her power, own it and use it to save Dimitri.
It was fun to see Joseph and Paul working to support Skyler. Their friendship is deep true and unbreakable. Joseph really stepped up, showed his strength, intelligence and determination as well . Even though he is still a jokester, when push comes to shove Joseph can shove back...hard. Paul is also taking after his uncles, every bit an stoppable DelaCruz. The bond the three of them have will last them a lifetime. If Paul chooses and is able to become Carpathian, it will stretch on for centuries.
The horror of what Dimitri had to endure is surpassed only by Skyler's determination to get to her lifemate. Couple that with the revelation of a conspiracy to kill all Guardians through Lycan treachery, and this story is definitely one of Ms. Feehan's best work!
please keep these narrators they bring the story to life. and I think what would be even more amazing your other books like the drake sisters or sisters of the heart also the ghost walkers OMG that would be so cool I would buy all you books agian
The performances were wonderful. The narration was very clear and the enacting of the characters was full with the inflections. I especially loved the accents which seemed quite suitable to every characters origin.
The story itself was full of action and richness. I found myself, as usual, reluctant to take breaks between listening.
This is the first audio book I have listened to all the way through and it was a very enriching experience.
I'm grateful for both the skill of the author and the voices who brought the book to vivid life.
