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.

Full character development and great story flow.
The combination of the 2 narrators added such depth to the story.
Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions.
Worth the wait
Skylar. Despite her youth, she set out, and accomplished her goal. She did what almost no one thought she could do.
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.
When Skylar was able to heal Dimitri
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.
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.
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.
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.
I would watch it on cable.
It was too much like all her other books, which i have read. liked Dark Lycan better.
spice it up different senarios more frequently.
didnt like two narrators Natalie was good.
the books are too repititious.
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.
When Skyler fools Zev and rescues Demetri
Demetri and Skyler
Always want to finish Ms. Feehan's books immediately.
To finally see what skyler is like!
All the other carpathian novels.
Great accent, and a good im Imagination.
Believer in what you can't see
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.
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.
It's always nice to hear a man do the male part and a woman does the women part.
No, there was to much going on to want to listen to in one sitting.
I like this story, but I wanted more talking and getting to know one another after waiting so long for them to get together.
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.
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.
Skyler rescue of Dimitri with the help of Josef and Paul. Another was the gift from Ivory and Razvan to Skyler and Dimitri.
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.
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
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.
Skylar and Dmitri
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.
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!
