Publisher's Summary

A dark storm is on the horizon.... Return to Christine Feehan’s “steamy and dreamy” (Publishers Weekly) world of her New York Times best-selling Carpathian novels as roiling passions collide in a perfect storm of dangerous desire that only a precious few can hope to outrun....

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.

But there are some things that never change.

His name is Mitro, the vampire Dax had hunted all these long centuries. Second in command to the prince of the Carpathian people he is the epitome of everything malevolent, and perpetrator of one of the most shocking killing sprees known to man - and beast. Even his friends and family weren’t safe from Mitro’s bloodlust. Neither was Mitro’s lifemate, Arabejila, an extraordinary woman with extraordinary gifts.

But now that Dax has re-emerged, so too has Mitro. The ultimate battle between good and evil has been re-engaged. Between Dax and Mitro, a violent game has begun - one that has marked Riley Parker, the last descendent of Arabejila, as the reward.

A new story line

I am trilled that Christine Feehan has introduced a new story line, touching on some old ones, with some new characters in this book. I can't wait to see where she goes next and hope that she expands this line in future books.

Another Feehan Hit!!!!

This book was well worth the wait, I believe this book is one of her best. The narrators did a wonderful job! The story is one that draws you in and keeps you wanting more and the narrators make the characters come to life. It's the perfect combination! All I can say is I love this book and I'm glad I went with my instincts, I'm glad I didn't get discouraged by bad reviews. I'm happy I took a chance and spent the credit, it was well worth it!!!!
Way to go Christine Feehan!!!!! I'll patiently wait for the next Dark Series Book.

Sexy, Sexy, Sexy Now, More, More Please!

I have been waiting for this book for a long time. I was totally excited to download this one. Sometimes when the anticipation is high you get a little let down. It did not happen this time. I have all the books in the Dark series. One thing that I like about Feehan’s books is that she knows how to work in adventure, drama, and still have those hot sexy moments. I fell in love with the story of Dax and Riley. Now for the die heart Dark series fans like me…Feehan sheds more light into the mystery of why the Carpathian women have such a hard time with child birth, she introduces several intriguing missing elements, which just happens to make one of my favorite love scenes in the book. Believe me, you will never thing of flowers the same way again. It took me a while to write this review because sometimes I like to listen to the good ones twice. This was a good one!

GREAT!!! Christine Does it Again w/this Series

Christine Does it Again w/the Carpathian Series. I've been waiting almost 2 1/2 years for her to write the next series w/the Carpathains and it was worth the wait. The Narrators did a great job as well! Christine Feehan always (in my opinion) writes a good book and I really hope I don't have to wait long before she continues with the Carpathians or Leapords series.

Another worthy addition to the Carpathian series

I am a huge C.F. fan and have listened to most of her books available on Audible including this series which have all been brilliant from book 1 - so if you haven't listened to any others in the series then I suggest you start there and work your way up to this book otherwise you will miss so much about the Carpathian's.

Dark Storm was enjoyable, entertaining and had some really tense moments, it will have your interest from the start. I did however, find it a bit gloomy and slightly depressing, coupled with this, Riley and Dax fell in love from the very first moment they saw each other which wasn't until quite a long way into the first half therefore there was no 'drama' to their romance at all. So unfortunately, for those reasons, I would have to say that this is my least favourite out the entire series.

Worth of credit? Yes definitely, but I would just have liked a 'pinch' of something more to have been able to give it 5 stars.

Feels like home

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely, I have read ever book in this series, and the story seems to lead back to the original storyline. If you are a big fan of the Dark Series, this will remind you of Falcon and Sara's story, Traian and Joie or Dayan and Coriane. Where the lifemate recognize each other right away and they come together to defeat the vampire, and at the same time are very comfortable with each other and truely love each other. No violence to win them. One of my favorite in the series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The dragon was my favorite. Even as he was dying and giving a piece of himself to Dex he never gave up is spirit.

What about Erik Bergmann and Kristine Ryan ’s performance did you like?

Very good performance. I like that Feehan's uses both a female and male voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It didn't make me laugh or cry, but it did make me feel that the storyline was going back to the original storyline.

Any additional comments?

I was glad to see that Jasmine and Jubal were getting close. I also like all the interaction with the other characters.

Love this series with all of its nuances

The Dark series is one of my favorites. Christine Feehan has created a vast and wondrous world with the ancient Carpathians aligned with modern-day life-mates and allies.

Dark Storm brings us two extremely ancient Carpathians; one turned vampire and the other a warrior honed to combat the evil of the first. Aided by a decedent of a powerful bloodline. The new lovers and life-mates, must battle the evil that has been chained for thousands of years and suddenly released on an unsuspecting world.

Thank you Christine, for your beautiful description of the dragon. So reminiscent of the Dragons of Pern series by the late Anna McCaffrey.
