Summary

They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light....

Alexandria Houton will sacrifice anything - even her life - to protect her orphaned little brother. But when both encounter an unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex can only cry to heaven for their deliverance.... And out of the darkness swoops Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious, than any other creature of the night. The ageless Carpathian male snatches them from a hideous fate. But is Aidan Alex's salvation...or her sin? If she surrenders to Aidan's savage, unearthly seduction, and gives him the color, the light, the family he craves, will Alex truly save her brother? Or sacrifice more than her life?

Didn't enjoy.

I read this book a few years ago and enjoyed it enough for me to re-read it a few times. I loved charismatic Aiden and enjoyed the fantasy storyline. Having now had to change to audio books and knowing the book very well, i was really keen to hear this story. It was so disappointing - the narration was at times annoying, didn't capture the male protagonist's character and the voice used for the female lead Alexandria was the type of voice that men use use when they're taking the p##$ out of a woman.
I'm really sorry to leave a bad review but I just couldn't finish the book. In fact I hated it so much I'm a bit gutted.

Annoying mispronounsiatian

Gregori is not pronounced Gregory, it is pronounced old fashioned, Greg _ori, everything else was fine just that irritating mispronounsiatian again and again

Good book bad narration

I liked the original version better. The narrator for this version isn't as good. He isn't as able to bring the characters to life.

Ugh Alex, Mmm Aiden, and its Gregori!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marc Bachmann?

I was not a fan of Marc Bachmann for mainly two reasons. One, every time he did a female voice I was jarred out of the story. They were awful.Two, his pronunciation of Gregori was totally wrong. I made be biased but it hurt every time.

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

Yes, Alex was probably the most annoying lady in the series. Ugh, she got on my nerves for like 3/4 of the book. Aiden and the rest of the characters were awesome.

Any additional comments?

I have read the series before ages ago but listening to them on audible is a new experience and an exciting one.

BOOK 3 OF THIS SUPERB SERIES DOESN'T DISAPPOINT!!!

If you are looking for a page-turner read, this series is the perfect one for you! I would highly recommend the whole series. I have read all of the books. Now, I am going to listen to all of them on Audible. The readers are fantastic!! The characters are well defined. The action parts recreated so no thrill is missed. The romance and sexual content is hot!!! You will not want to stop to take a break, either reading or listening! Read Book 1, Dark Prince, first. Follow with Book 2, Dark Desire, next. Reading and listening in order is recommended!!!

Dark Series

I love this series. Each character is amazing and I love when they find their life mate. I really enjoyed that Alex had a little brother that she was providing for. The narrator was great and I’d recommend this book and series to anyone.

Story Amazing, Narration not so much

I’ve been reading Christine Feehan since her books came out in ‘99. The first two I listened to (Dark Prince and Dark Desire) were read by Abby Craven, and she nailed it. This was the first I listened to narrated by Bachman, and it was like the story lost a lot of it’s wonder and seriousness. The accents are important, and Alexandria was made to sound like a petulant child the entire time. The story will always be amazing, but if it can be re-read by Craven, that would be fantastic. Also- IT’S GRAY-GORE-EE, not Gregory. Get it right already.
