Publisher's Summary

Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life....

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he's worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it.

They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice....

Love is about to start conquering....

HUGE twists, turns and surprises here with plenty

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5
Spanning the time since we first met Janie, it’s been 20+ years, and she’s always been at the center of the action. The “Chosen One”, her psychic abilities and her dream walking have been a constant winding thread through all of the stories. Years ago Janie made a friend, her BEST friend, Zane. She’d talk to him, tell him things that she shared with no one else, and somewhere in her mind, had determined she loved him. But Zane is not the innocent and protective boy we first met, and he did,in fact, try to warn her off repeatedly.

But Zane is not the only person that Janie spent time with during her dream walking. Kalin is a Kurjan, purported heir. A bit of a psychopath, more than a little unhinged and spoilt, he’s got ‘plans’ for Janie. But, the one outstanding feature in this story is Janie’s belief that she can (and will) keep everyone she loves safe and end the war.

HUGE twists, turns and surprises here with plenty of action and several on the edge of my seat moments where everyone’s happiness, let alone life and love, is in danger. Secrets all come out of the closet in this – some I didn’t even know were secrets! Every faction has their own version of how things will end, most conflict although those that do come “true” have some serious kinks in the works that no one expected. A wonderful wrap up to an epically engaging series.

Karen White has provided the narration for this series, and the continuity did help this series as a listener. Her ability to maintain character voices, delivery, accent and tone, as well as appropriately age Janie from young girl to young woman, gives listeners an instant reference that brings each character to mind. Throughout the series, White has nailed each emotional moment, taking her time to deliver the punch without overdramatizing or adding elements that would be too much. Dialogue, action and even silence are delivered to put the words on the page front and center, allowing listeners to disappear into the world where they can visualize and feel every moment. You’d be hard pressed to find a better narrative performance for a series than White. Having experienced her work in other genres, I know that she is certainly a must listen for me. In what had to be a formidable project, there were no moments that distracted, the listen was easy and the performance felt effortless, a great trick. This is a favorite series of mine, and one that will get lots of “relistens” when I want to escape and just enjoy.

I received an AudioBook copy of the title from Audible Communications Team. I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility.

It Was Very Good Book

I liked how the book did a recap without being overwhelming. The author did a good job throughout. Kalen's involvement was minimal and I was surprised by that. I thought he would have had a bigger role but it was not disappointing. And yes I would recommend this book along with the other books in the series.

GREAT FINISH

Where does Marked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the most memorable series

What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As the series went on her performance got better and I fell more and more in love with the characters

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The birth of the baby

Any additional comments?

Don't miss out on a unforgettable series... I loved ALL the books

A great ending to an awesome series

I so loved the last book in the Dark protectors series. Rebecca Zanetti totally out did herself. I love every minute of the book and so hated each time really life interrupted me and I had to stop listening.

This last book brought the whole series together and it was a great end to an awesome series. There were so many twist and turns that it's hard to write a review without giving anything away. I screamed WHY when I found out what Zane was other than a vampire but then RZ brought all back to good again.

I love the fact that we got to meet more of Zane's family, but was sad that Jase didn't have a bigger part in the book. Especially after everything that Suri put him through, I was really hoping for a confrontation between the two of them.

Rebecca did something that I never thought was capable of me to do...I learned to like Kalin...LOL :)

Zane and Belle's love story has been told over every book in the series and even though I'm sad the series has come to an end I loved how their story played out. This book made me feel every emotion I think possible. The climax at the end was just perfect and I was happy that everything worked out the way it did.

I highly recommend this series to anybody who loves a paranormal romance and look forward to the new series based off this one. I just hope we get both Zane's brothers stories and more of Zane and Belle in all future books.

Scoobydoo style

I'm unable to get past an hour of this. The narration is painfully similar to a comic book show. Ruins any ability to take the characters seriously.
