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.

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!
The narrators were great! I love the combined talents of Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross. They bring the characters and book to life.
My favorite character was Skyler of course!!!
The way they bring the characters to life!! The emotion they put into each character and the book they are reading.
Yes, I felt the emotion of each character.
I will also buy the book even though I have the audible version. I have recommended this to every one I know!
I would listen instead of reading just for the wonderful combination of Gigante & Ross's brilliant narration!!! I will keep this book on my desert isle bookshelf as it seems fresh and new every time I read it. I keep finding little details about the characters that I missed the first and second time around.
There are too many memorable moments. They started in the first scene and then they just kept coming. I loved the humorous banter between Skyler, Josef and Paul the whole book. I loved watching Skyler finally accepting all of who she is and the glimpse of what she will be. I loved Dimitri's patience and understanding.The whole book was perfection. A worthy telling of Dimitri and Skyler's story.
The Bubble Scene. A place that tests Dimitri, Skyler, Joseph and Paul to the absolute edge of their skills, bonds, and their belief in each other. Loved that new depths are given to other beloved characters from previous books in the series. By now, all who know them believe the bond between Dimitri and Skyler is very unique in it's strength, special in it's depths, and destined to be. The bubble scene revealed just how deeply the connections between Paul, Josef and Skyler are and the acceptance of Dimitri into that connection as part of their chosen family. I loved that Dimitri not only had understood their friendship (something most Carpathian men couldn't), he had relied on it. But in that moment, I think the friends that Skyler had loved as close as brothers, forged their own bonds of brotherhood together.
Razvan and Ivory's gift.
This is a rare book worthy of purchasing both a Hardcover edition AND the Audio version. Both were very hard to put down! As someone previously wished, I too would love ALL of the Dark Series read by Gigante and Ross. I would repurchase every audiobook just to hear them bring all these wonderful books to life! Since I know that it is not very realistic, I would wish at least Dark Lycan could be rerecorded with these two master performers and I'm hoping Dark Blood will receive the same care and special touch that these two narrators brought to this book.
Now I'm looking forward to Zev and Branislava's story, but also can't wait for Gary Jansen and Gabrielle Sanders... and Josef, Paul, Jubal, Josh, Jasmine. Well, I guess it's safe to say that after 25 books, the stories never get old nor the writing trite and unoriginal!
Yes, the story line is very interesting and the 2 readers do a great job.
The interaction between Skyler and her friends Paul & Joseph. They have been in and out of other stories and the focus on them, how they have developed, and their friendship was a great read.
Yes, I've listened to both readers and they come through in this book.
Yes - for both the story (finally) and the readers. I love having the audio so I can listen while doing my knitting or driving.
It stands alone for so many reasons.
The flower scene It was romantic and erotic yet dealt with her past and Dimitri's love for Skyler
I loved the narration of both Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross it was so natural and added so much without detracting from the story.
As much as I love PARANORMAL ROMANCE none are as well written as Christine Feehan ever book is as great as the first. The men and women in her books are dreamy and exciting you come to love ever one in her books and find yourself waiting for her next book.
You don't have a favorite Character you love them all.
They told the story very well
It's very hard to put down
Christine Feehan please keep them coming
