Publisher's Summary

At last, Heaven would find the happiness she longed for...free from the scorn and contempt of her past!

In her grandmother's fine, rich Boston house, Heaven Leigh Casteel dreamed of a wonderful new life of new friends, the best schools, beautiful clothes, and most important, love. The pearls of culture, wisdom, and breeding would now be hers. Soon, she would make the Casteel name respectable, find her brothers and sisters, and have a family again.

But even in the world of the wealthy, there were strange forebodings, secrets best forgotten. And as Heaven reached out for love, she was slowly ensnared in a sinister web of cruel deceits and hidden passions.

good book, needs work with the performance.

why I love this book and many more V.C Andrews. Candace just needs to bring down her twang a bit. why I understand this takes place in west Vergina her twang on some character's made it almost to hard to understand and listen to. Other than that she did a great job.

omg

Heaven is the most insufferable, frustrating, selfish and self destructive character I have ever encountered. This book would be excellent for true masochists.

love

I've always loved old VC Andrews so I was so excited for the audiobook but the narrator's voice is a turn off for me. Tony Tatterton would not sound like that and she always sounds like she is asking a question.

Dark Angel

I am a fan of V. C. Andrews and it was and still is a great book. I enjoyed the narrator immensely! If you're already a fan it's a great listen!

Solid Second Installment

A solid second installment in the Castel Series. Narration is consistent and pleasant to listen to.

Horrible narrator

Every sentence ends like a question being asked while galloping through a forest on a lame horse. And the parts where she reads dialogue is sometimes painful with the stress being on “he SAID?” “She SAID?” “He ANSWERED?” “She CRIED?” Her inflection is just off and it made the last book and this one so hard to listen to.

Great Reader

I have read this series many times, starting when I was a teenager. And like most people you already have pictures of people and voices in your head. So the biggest thing is that you hope you're not disappointed when someone else reads it. And all I can say is I was not disappointed. I mean it was Fanny that did it for me! I was like I was seeing her talk wagging her finger and shake her head back-and-forth when she was chastising Heaven, which is pretty much all the time. Every single voice was different, including the men. I had hoped she would have read the rest of the series, so I was slightly disappointed when it wasn't her because she had done such a great job. You never realize all the work someone has to put in to read a book out loud and make everyone happy... So the 5 stars is there and I would have given more if I could!

Movie was better

The narrator’s voice was way too scratchy!!! Made it difficult to follow along and made me want to fast forward through much of the book. The made for TV movie was better!

Great!!!

I really liked it. You never know if it's going to be brought to life to enjoy as much or more than reading it.

Highly Recommend

I am reading this series of books again after 20 years to see if I would enjoy them as much. These books are still as good to read at 37 as they were at 17.

Darker Than it’s Prequel, an Intense Sequel

Picking up almost immediately from the events of the first book, “Dark Angel” brings Heaven into the wealthy household and lifestyle of her deceased mother’s family. As Heaven thrives academically and comes into her own, this book also shows her sexual awaking as she overcomes her past trauma. Heaven’s upbringing makes her tougher, but family secrets and the ghosts of her past continue to haunt her. No longer a naive fearful child, Heaven is driven by ambitious and revenge, so much so that the reader sees a darker side to her. Leigh’s past is also slowly revealed as Heaven learns how deeply the abusive cycle goes in her family on both sides. Candace Thaxton returns once again to narrate the audiobook version, her performance bringing great emotion to the story - the shift in Heaven’s accent was a clever acting choice, which shows her adapting to the middle-class environment and moving away from her country roots.
Again, this book tackles abuse within the family home and how that shapes an individual, but this book actually weaves that in a harsh but compelling way throughout the plot. Seeing Heaven grow more in the book and the contrast in social class, but the sinister similarities makes this a great read. Darker than its prequel, “Dark Angel” brings back the past of both Heaven and Leigh in an intense and twisted sequel.
