Description

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

The stranger silently summoned her from across the continents, across the seas, whispering of eternal torment, of endless hunger...of dark, dangerous desires. And somehow American surgeon Shea O'Halloran could feel his anguish, sense his haunting aloneness.

Drawn to the far Carpathian Mountains, Shea found a ravaged, raging man, a being like no other. And she trembled. For in his burning eyes she recognized the beloved stranger who'd already become part of her.

But was she to be his healer...or his prey?

Christine Feehan is Great!

If you could sum up Dark Desire in three words, what would they be?

Great sequel

What did you like best about this story?

The plot continues on from the Dark Prince. The Carpathian world gets bigger and more questions are answered.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Gregori and the prince come to help the second time. The dialogue is great.

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

It really made me laugh to hear the byplay between the males.

Any additional comments?

Just a great read. All questions get answered and the story line is set for the next book. I like this narrator.

Narrator a big improvement over previous version

I liked this narrator much better. She especially does a good job with the male voices. It's just a better dramatic reading. I've listened to all the books in this series, and I hope some of the other earlier books are rereleased with a different narrator.

Better version

Abby Craden does a much better job on this than Juanita Parker. Parker always sounds like she's reading to children.

Not as Good as the First in the Series

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

This is one of those series that I originally started mainly because of the dark overtones that is appeared to have. When it comes to vampire lore I love the more non-traditional version, grounded in more the history than the myth - but still with the dark and mysterious feel. So far this series has proven to be just that.

Grounded in the origins of the vampire legends -- namely the Carpathian mountains and the original asserted origins of vampires in general -- this book and series does a great job of incorporating the two.

Jacque, however, isn't quite as strong a character as his brother, Mikhil. And the story line, or at least the way this one was built, doesn't help that feel. The inability of the main character to have no memory of his life, or how his fractured mind got to be that way, made it hard to really connect with him as a character.

Shay was, however, a more well rounded character than Raven (Dark Prince). She is more grounded in medicine and science -- which makes it a more interesting approach to the concept of science confronting myth and fiction.

Overall -- the story was ok -- but it became a little burdensome by the end. It just started to feel exactly like the first one -- but much more removed from the historical references -- and more anchored in the romance. But I do enjoy the darker nature of the romance, and the Gothic feel overall.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending a little cliche. The vampire was one that was interesting -- and it could have been figured out if you were familiar with the story line of the first in the series. Also, there was simply a feeling that too many story threads just weren't quite pulled together.

Which character – as performed by Abby Craden – was your favorite?

I didn't really have a favorite in this one. Although the dark nature of Jacque is very intriguing. Her rendering of most of the characters is along a mysterious vein -- and she does a good job of capturing and entrancing the reader.

ABRIDGED version might have helped this slowpoke

I just felt like someone hit the slo-mo button on this one. The heroine has this angst about becoming the hero's life partner which is just kind of silly considering all we know about who and what she is and the supposed hormonal pull of this whole life partner thing. I felt like the preoccupation with her angst bogged the story down and prevented it from moving forward in a satisfactory way. I like to listen before I go to sleep, but with this book I just kept falling asleep. I had to listen while doing housework, but I still found my mind wandering off. The narrator was just okay. I am a fan of narrators who bring the characters to life--no extra life delivered here. While this narrator didn't add to the story, she didn't detract either. Based on this listening experience, this will be my first and last Feehan novel. As my tastes usually fall within popular norms, I am a little perplexed what other people found so enjoyable that I obviously just didn't. If I feel like a little vampire action in the future, I'll look up Kresley Cole, Jeanine Frost, or Dianne Duvall whom I've enjoyed in the past.

I want to like this more.

There is something about this book that I just can’t seem to get over. The author sometimes is very repetitive over certain words and phrases. It gets a little annoying. While the steamy scenes are steamy the rest of the book is a little bit lacking. Plot and story are good, character development is lacking.
