Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Another Great Story from Christine Feehan"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Full character development and great story flow.


    What does Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The combination of the 2 narrators added such depth to the story.

    Story
    "Skylar and Dimitri, At Last"
    If you could sum up Dark Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the wait


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Skylar. Despite her youth, she set out, and accomplished her goal. She did what almost no one thought she could do.


    What about Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross ’s performance did you like?

    They are both two of my favorite narrators. They are very good voice actors. The accents, voice range in portraying different characters in this book are wonderful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Skylar was able to heal Dimitri


    Any additional comments?

    Christine Feehan is one of my favorite writers. I love her ability to create story lines that draw the reader in. While her books follow her specific style of formula, shall we say, she makes each book and couple's story unique. The concept of the Carpathian people, is a superb concept, one that I simply love. I never get tired of reading, and/or listening to her Dark Series books.

    Story
    "Not a good stand alone book."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I realize this book is 25 in the series, but the author claims each book can stand on its own. This is not true. I think this book is only really good to devoted readers of the entire series. I still have 4 hours left, but I don't think I am going to get a good explanation of the differences between the Carpathians and the vampires at this point. I am so confused about the mixed bloods as well, is Dimitri a Carpathian that drank Lycan blood or a Lycan that drank Carpathian blood? And what is a Dragonseeker? None of this is explained in this book, although I'm sure loyal followers of the series already know these details. I am going to finish it, it is not unbearable, just frustrating.. and I don't want to have to research these questions on my own. Eventually I might start at book 1.


    What could Christine Feehan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Reading it as stand alone, she could have explained the different races better. This story is also lacking the romance and sexual tension I figured it would have, and the action scenes are rather lackluster. Everything comes too easily in this book, there are no real obstacles for the characters to overcome. For instance, Skyler's transition from powerless to powerful came together with just a few rhymes.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross – was your favorite?

    Phil and Natalie are hands down my favorite narrators, and were the reason I decided to listen to this book without having read any other in the series. I haven't really become attached to any of the characters, so not sure which ones are my favorite performances. Probably Skyler and Dimitri.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would watch it on cable.

    spice it up different senarios more frequently.

    "Favorite one so far"
    Would you listen to Dark Wolf again? Why?

    I was really glad to finally get to Skyler's story. I was so glad that Ms. Feehan did not brush over Skyler's past but made it a part of the story line and her fears were overcome by true love. It was really inspirational for people who have that kind of past.

    I also loved the fact that family comes first in these stories. Most stories focus on the hero and heroine but don't always bring in the rest of the support group that is really needed in life.

    The narrators are good as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Wolf?

    When Skyler fools Zev and rescues Demetri


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross – was your favorite?

    Demetri and Skyler


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Always want to finish Ms. Feehan's books immediately.

    "Finally Skylar and Dimitri's story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Wolf to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I only listened to the audio version. The first half was really exciting and dangerous, especially when all the bad ass Carpathians went to Skylar's aid. The plot almost reminded me of how the United States Congress is treating certain people in our country.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked it when all the Carpathians went to rescue Joseph, Paul and Skylar and that they stood by Dimitri when the Lycans wanted to kill him.


    What about Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross ’s performance did you like?

    It's always nice to hear a man do the male part and a woman does the women part.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, there was to much going on to want to listen to in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this story, but I wanted more talking and getting to know one another after waiting so long for them to get together.

    Story
    "another great book from Feehan"
    Where does Dark Wolf rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    On top with all the other wonderful books I have enjoyed. But no matter how wonderful the book or story if the performance is not good it takes away from the story. That was not an issue. The performance was outstanding and thus enhanced the listening experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Wolf?

    Josef understanding he was loved and valued. Another wonderful moment was Skyler accepting her bio father,Razvan. There were many wonderful scenes in the book as it moves right along so it is hard to choose.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Skyler rescue of Dimitri with the help of Josef and Paul. Another was the gift from Ivory and Razvan to Skyler and Dimitri.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a stand alone but it will be more rewarding if you read Dark Lycan first. This series of 3, I feel, should have been one big book. I am waiting with anticipation for the last book, Dark Blood, to be released later this year.

    Would you listen to Dark Wolf again? Why?

    definitely - the story line from beginning to end keeps you on the edge of your seat. Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross did an excellent job reading the book. I especially like when there are two readers


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Wolf?

    when Skylar jumped in front of Dmitri and was shot and he had to find her in the shadow world while she was converting to Carpathian.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross – was your favorite?

    Skylar and Dmitri


    Any additional comments?

    This book did not let the reader down. When an author writes so many books they sometimes start to be repetitive not so with Christine Feehan's. I look forward to each and every one.

    I'm visually impaired and I'm adicted to reading! I'm 19, and have been reading since I was 12. I love all things fantasy. Some of my favorite authors include but are not limited too Margaret Weis, Mercedes Lackey, Yasmine Galenorn, Christine Feehan, and many more.

    "Worth the Wait!"

    I've been waiting for this book forever it seems like! It was well worth the wait, and Mrs. Feehan fans will be delighted with Skyler and Dimitri's story. I know I was! Skyler does a lot of growing and changing in the story--and that's all I will say. :) Also, I like how there were two narators! They were both really good at passing back and forth--in conversations. Its the first book I've heard with two narators. I LOVED it!!!!! I'll definitely be rereading!
