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.

I was so eager to read this book, I confess I was disappointed with the ending. The whole book is very good, excellent, but I found the ending very banal for a story like this. , it's a book that Worth the credit, knowing, because each book, although it has a plot of its own, contradicts the atmosphere crafted by the author throughout the series.

An amazing book, because I never imagined that Solange could be the lifemate of someone, much less from Dominic. T The interesting thing is that the story is based on Solange's past, and Dominic's swiss mission, and after the meeting,.an efforts to overcome the marks of Solange's past.
A very well structured story with a very good logical sequence of events.

I love this series, but this book isn't one of my favorites... I really didn't like the story. Manolite and his lifemate are boring characters... and the plot is annoying. The problem is that's impossible skip this book, because as all books of the series, we discover somthing interesting or important. The narrative isn't good too, so my experience with this book was difficult. I usually listen Christine Feehan's book in 2-4 days... but this took me 10 days, and I couldn't listen more than two chapters after get annoying and change to a book or ebook.

With each passing year, his capacity to feel emotions has grown weaker and weaker, until finally there's barely a memory of one left - only sheer willpower keeps him from turning into the very abomination he hunts.

Dark Secret is very interesting, because the events of this book occur in parallel to the events of the previous book - Dark Hunger. In the previous book, the author introduced the De la Cruz’s brothers, and in this book we know the story of Raphael de la Cruz and his lifemate. At the same time that the author narrates the saga, it brings elements of other books, paving the way for the continuation of history. This is fantastic, as each book in the series is integrated with the previous ones and the next ones.
But back to the book in question, the story is good, a bit monotonous at times, considering that Raphael is an ancient warior, with ideas that irritate his lifemate.
TAbout te narrative, I think is good, with a clear and easy pronunciation to understand.

The book is a classic, and wonderful. I enjoyed a lot remember the story of Elizabeth and Darcy. The only problem of this audiobook, in my opinion, is the fact on the end of each chapter, the narrator announced the end of the chapter, and at the beginning of the next, announced the title of book ... this is a little annoying, because you know what book you're listening to, don’t you? But the book is great, a classic.

This book is fantastic. The story has an interesting plot, which only becomes apparent in the second half of the book. The first part of the story is well known, typical of this literary genre. But little by little information and new paths are emerging that lead the character to engage in a network of intrigue and power that leads to an unexpected end ... I honestly did not expect such a turn in the final moments ...
In relation to the narrative, it is a spectacle to the air, which contributes magnificently to the history, creating the ideal climate for each situation, with an excellent voice intonation, and very well articulated. facilitating the understanding of what was being narrated.
