Publisher's Summary

All new from the number-one New York Times best-selling author. As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.

The answer awaits him back home, in Peru, in the betrayal of a woman who is readying her trap, in the vengeance of an old enemy, in the inevitable consequences of a bloody family legacy - and in the deliverance of a lifemate he never could have imagined.

Love in vein: listen to more Carpathian tales in Christine Feehan's Dark Series.

A little drawn out....

It was OK, but was longer than it needed to be. I was looking forward to Zacarias' story, but his story was drawn out, a lot of repeated dialogue. The story made you feel a little like you rewound the MP3 player because you heard the same story line numberous times. Maybe there is a minimum on pages/hours required by the publisher to account for the repeated information. The book could have been maybe 5 hours shorter. I have been a long time fan of the Dark Series, Drake Sisters, and Ghostwalkers, but I am starting to see a trend of the books becoming drawn out. I would like to see more interaction with the other Carpathian's like in previous stories, this would better fill the space than the repetitive lines.

Dark Predator

I love Ms. Feehan's Dark series but this one was a little different . It really kept me on the edge. The life partner was different from the rest as well as the female. I loved it! It was well worth the read! Enjoy!!

Another wonderful adventure

I am a huge fan of all of Christine Feehan's work. Reading the books and now audio books is pure pleasure. The narration is smooth and easy to listen to with seamless switches between the two narrators. Excellent!

The scary one finally falls.

Finally,Zacarius' story is told. I felt this was a little bit too long in the tooth, plot wise but still a good story. Margarita was the stronger character and a delight. Zacarius was still his arrogant self but Margarita was more than a match for him. If you are a true Feehan fan you will like this addition to the series.

Well, not her best.

I am a fan of the Dark Series and have enjoyed most of them. However, this will be a waste of your credit. Absolutely no story, or should I say the same conversation between two characters chapter, after chapter, after chapter. I always expect redundancy with these books, but this was actually offensive to me. It's like they threw a book together to make money. Perhaps they should call it day with the Dark Series because this seems like a road-ender.

On a up note I did enjoy the narrators. I'm sure I would thoroughly enjoy them with good material.

I loved my first Audible book

I loved my first audible book even if I don't love the book I listened too.I wanted there to be more interaction between him and his brothers The whole thing about him only seeing color when they are connected was different.I liked that she made the characters flawed.I was looking for a little more out of this book but as always i'm looking forward to the next one and I hope to be surprised after all these book are not cheap and refunds are not availible

Ugggghhhhhhh on and on about the some ole...!

I cant believe this over descriptive drivel was published. I am disappointed I wished I save my credit for something better. No action whatsoever, just stagnate and boring. I really hate to say this but Christine Feehan needs to hang it up on the dark series, if all her books going to be run on sentences. I hate to say this though, the Narrators are absolutely awesome, hence the 5 stars for performance.

LOVED IT!!! But it would’ve been better that when the narrator was a man, the character(voice) of margarita would’ve been a woman and vive versa

Loved this story!

This is my 4th time listening to this story because I love it! Most of the story's of the Carpathians are about strong men and women. This is no different but it shows just how "strong" and wild Zacharais really is. Even when you think he's changed, his character holds true and there isn't a miraculous change that overcomes him. He doesn't suddenly become a nice, mild mannered person. I think I like that best. He stays rough and dominant and Margarita struggles to find him loveable at one point.
It's a great story and I adored the characters. The story never bored me, though there was quite a bit of soul searching involved and that usually has me fast forwarding through it. But
in this case, it was necessary for the development of the characters and story. And-it was key in understanding the darkness in Zacharais.
The narrators were amazing! So perfect and kept all the voices straight! It's so awesome to have the story read in his/her voice. Makes it so much more enjoyable. Kudos to them both!
I've either read or listened to the entire series as it stands right now but I always come back to this one.
Worth the credit. You won't be disappointed!
