Publisher's Summary

Enter the enchanting world of the Carpathians, where dark adventure, mystery, and love await, and the desires of two daring hearts unite in one irresistible passion.

A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps to catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks for a vacation far from home.

Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. Engulfed by despair, fearful of never finding the mate who can save him from the encroaching darkness, his soul cries out in loneliness - until the day that a beautiful voice full of light and love responds, softly soothing his pain and yearning.

From the moment they meet, Raven and Mikhail are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them. But just as fate unexpectedly brings these life mates together, malevolent forces threaten to destroy them and their fragile love. Yet even if they survive, how can these two lovers - Carpathian and human - build a future together? And how can Mikhail bring Raven into his dark world without extinguishing her beautiful goodness and light?

Annoyed

While th the idea of the story seemed pretty good, the narrator's voice was extremely bothering. combine that with the constant whining of the Raven character and I could barely get through the book. it was truly nauseating. I was only able to finish because I was determined not to waste a credit. Maybe I'm a little biased and I'm subconsciously comparing this to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series but I will not. e continuing this series.

Dark Series

What did you love best about Dark Prince?

This is my first book from Christine Feehan even though I know she's been writing for a good while. This is a big series & when do you want to get into a series so large? I'm hopeful. The concept is different enough that you don't feel like it's a story that's been batted around before. The good guys are good & the bad guys die.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance would be better with a different narrator. I will make sure I don't listen to any other series with Abby Craden narrating.The narration by Abby Craden lacks a lot, especially with female characters. It just sounds so put on, gushy and fake. She narrates book 2 in this series also so, I'll give it 2 more books. The lead lady "Raven" sounds so helpless most of the time it's silly. She must be the stupidest woman alive. Whatever happened to women with a clue? Maybe I'll give it one more book.

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

My reaction.... yawn. I'm hoping the next book is better. This book was written in 1999. It has potential.

love the book

I love the book. The narrator made Raven come off as a weak porcelain doll that would break any second.

New hope for a dying race

A new hope for all the warriors has been found. Giving hope to a race that needs females and girl children. A miracle for one and all. God works in mysterious ways...If you are a physic American female, be on the look out for a tall Hansom male. He might just make all your dreams come true. 😅

Thoroughly disappointing

The narrator sounded weak and WAY too prissy. The story was even weaker. Completely banal. I will not be reading this author ever again.

This is my first book of this nature!

Ok, was not sure I was really going to like the idea of (Carpathians)! Lol I love romance and have for decades, I wanted more spice! Well, Christine Feehan gave me just what I wanted! I was actually talking to the book!!! Lol
If you are an older woman, want more mystery and spice, take a chance get this book! You will not be disappointed!

Just could not finish

Any additional comments?

I usually love these types of books but I just could not get through this. I listened to over an hour of this book and it just left me feeling bored and no attachment to any characters.

Dark Prince Book 1 of The Dark Series

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Prince to be better than the print version?

In some ways it is as we get to listen to the story and imagine it in our minds! The book on the other hand is just as good in its way as well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Raven Whitney was my favorite character, as she was beautiful but so strong-strong enough to stand up to the Prince of the Carpathian people. I also loved Mikhail the prince as he was so enamored of Raven-she was a gift he had waited centuries for!

What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

I really liked Abby's performance-this was the second audio book I bought of Dark Prince and it was so much more, her voice distinguished between all of the characters really well, and I just love the way she read it!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book in two sittings as I did not have time, but if I could I would have loved to listen to it all in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

I really loved this audiobook it is one of my favorites of all the books I have bought over the past couple of years, and I know I will listen to it again!
