    Description

    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?

    Truly Awful. A Major Snoozefest.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Really the whole novel could have been a short story...and even then, not a very good one.

    What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?

    The story is shallow and desperate and endlessly repetitive. None of the characters are relatable or even particularly likable. Further, there is NO humor at all. This story takes itself WAY too seriously. For the record, I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to slutty vampire books. I'll read (or listen to) pretty much anything in the genre but I cannot even make myself finish this one. Really, find something else. This one is a total waste of a credit and your time.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator speaks VERY slowly and the dialogue is breathless, and urgent...all of it, not just the times when you think it should be. Everything the girl character says is just waaay over the top. Uber annoying.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Prince?

    Um...pretty much like every third scene and about 80% of the endless and lame sex scenes. It just goes on and on and its always the same. Outside of the steamy bits, the scenes propel the story at a snails pace making it virtually impossible to become invested or engaged in the story.

    Very good start to the series :)

    4 stars

    This was a very good story. I've actually read it before (3-4 years ago) and didn't review it then. This time around I listened to the extended audio version of the story but it's been so long since I read the normal version I can't tell the difference. I liked the story and will be continuing the series.

    Raven is a american woman that has psychic abilities. She's used her abilities to help the police catch 4 serial killers but at a great cost to her own mind and risking her sanity. Raven goes on vacation to the Carpathian mountains to rest up and recover but finds an unexpected adventure along the way.

    Mikhail is a Carpathian male and the prince of his people (there's no king so he's the top dog). Carpathians are born vampires with other abilities like shape shifting (to any form, even mist), magic spells and psychic powers. The males of the Carpathians have a darkness in them and if they don't find their lifemates, they can loss their souls and become evil. Mikhail's people are in dire straights because they don't have many women and the woman that do get pregnant usually give birth to males so their males aren't finding lifemates. Mikhail himself is close to the edge when the story begins.

    Raven is in an inn in the Carpathian mountains and she feels a horrible pain being broadcast over psychic wavelengths. The pain is so great that she can't help but reach out to try to sooth whomever it is. Mikhail has been riding close to going evil and thought to meet the sun instead of letting himself go bad. When Raven reaches out to him, he feels hope for the first time and he has to find out who she is. When he does, Mikhail is surprised that she's human but he's sure she's his lifemate. He pulls Raven into his life without her being able to put up much of a protest. Because they're lifemates there's a strong pull between them but regardless of this, Raven is kind of freaked by Mikhail and is stuck between wanting to run from him and wanting to do anything she can to save him from his sadness.

    The relationship between Raven and Mikhail begins roughly to say the least. Mikhail is the leader of his people and tends to command and be domineering which doesn't go over to well with Raven. Although he tries to continue his domineering ways for a bit, Mikhail soon realizes he's going to have to change to keep Raven happy. He does bond them before Raven truly knows what's going on though and that comes back to bite him in the behind but it also helps ensure Raven sticks around long enough for their bond to cement. There are some problems with another psychic and some vampire hunters with loose morals who are content to kill people they hope are vampires. They cause much drama and danger that has to be dealt with but may still have lasting repercussions. Things work out well for Mikhail and Raven though and they end the story starting a well deserved HEA together.

    This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Mikhail very much. He was a bit domineering at times but he soon curbed his more overly pushiness. I liked Raven for the most part but she had issues with being a TSTL heroine at times. Mikhail told her that once they bonded that if she died, he'd died and that was that. Then a few different times when things were really tough, she sought death as both a way out and to "save" Mikhail...conveniently forgetting that her dying would kill Mikhail. It just happened one too many times to no be stupid. Outside of that I liked Raven pretty well. The story was very good and kept me interested through the end. I'd recommend this book.

    Induces excessive eye rolling

    Although I have enjoyed other books written by Christine Feehan, I couldn't recommend this to anyone. It was honestly difficult to finish. I think the storyline had great potential, but unfortunately, the main characters never gained appeal to me. At first I thought it was just the narrator's voice for Raven (the female protagonist) that was grating on my nerves, but after a while, I realized it was just the character herself. If there was a stupid choice to be made, Raven predictably made it every time. Trying to understand her reasoning (her compassion for others, her belief in free will, etc.) didn't help at all. She came across as ridiculous damsel, who was always in distress. And the male lead, as attractive as he was written, lost some of his appeal to me, because of his willingness to cater to and coddle such a dolt! So disappointed. Don't waste your credit here. If you want to listen to Christine Feehan, I'd recommend the Ghostwalker series over this.

    The 2nd time around is just as good or better

    Christine Feehan is Awsome, I did not think she could make this story any better, but I was wrong. The narrator is great too, you will not be disappointed.

    Good but....

    I'm a guy who can enjoy an occasional romance and this book is a good one, occasionally. The sex is drawn out, overblown, full of every cliche imaginable and hard to get through sometimes. Come to think of it, that describes much of the book. The premise is interesting though and keeps me listening. Have large doubts about making it "deep into her velvet sheath" of a series.

    Could have been so much better

    To start with...the narrator was absolutely fantastic! I have a soft spot for Phil Gigante but Abby Craden was even better because she was able to do an excellent job even with the male voices. FANTASTIC!
    The story line was good and could have been great. Truthfully, if I hear "possession" one more time - I am going to puke! If you're a female who enjoys being "possessed" by a male, then go for it. It irked me to no end. The heroine is smart but stupid, Mikael gentle but possessive. How idiotic. She kept saying she has a mind but acted like a stupid ditsy girl. He kept saying he wants to accommodate her independence but when it came down to it, it was "do as I say or I will take over and do it for you!"
    I really like the story but was greatly annoyed by the two main characters. I had also listened to another Feehan novel (out of sequence) with a similar annoyance ( so, I haven't learned my lesson!) and this one seemed to be the first of the series. But, it was added very recently. It made the whole storyline a little confusing for me.
    Overall, if you can manage the cons, there is none better than Feehan to write those steamy scenes. But, beware of being 'possessed'.

    Utterly Supurb!!!

    Like the last reviewer said Juanita Parker didn't do this series justice. Abby Craden does a fantastic job, and she can actually say 'Gregori' instead of 'Gregory' unlike her predecessor. Is there any chance she could re-do Ms Parkers efforts??

    It was a dark and stormy night ...

    I think this is the book that Snoopy spent so many years typing out as he sat on top of his dog house.

    On the old SCTV series, the actor Joe Flaherty used to play a cheesy vampire character named Count Floyd, who spent most of his time trying to convince the audience that something totally silly was actually quite "scarrrrrry" and wiggling his eyebrows. I think the author had Count Floyd in mind when she created these characters. If she tried to make the book sound scary, it might disguise the fact that it was silly.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work this way. Making the narrator speak slowly and ponderously doesn't help either.

    Silly book. I didn't finish it.

    I want my wasted time back!

    This book was a real disappointment. The "heroine" of the story was so weak, winy and dumb, that I really had a hard time caring about what happened to her. The author contradicted herself constantly. Saying the "heroine" is very intelligent and then having her do extremely dumb stuff over and over just doesn't work. Having her say "I can help!!!" to only be screaming "Where are you? Help me!" is really annoying.

    The narration was somewhat wooden.

    I could not finish this book, it was a torture.

    Has Dark Prince turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Made it even worse

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Prince?

    wrong choice of Speaker

    Story typically Feehan. Unfortunately, Speaker gives Raven a wheepy voice, not like an independent woman.

    Sehr schlechte Story

    Schlechte billige Literatur. Habe nach 20 Minuten aufgehört zu hören. Ist verschwendete Zeit und Geld. Bin gespannt, ob jemandem die Geschichte gefallen hat.

    MINUS!!!!!200 Sterne_grauenhaft

    Leider kann ich keine Bewertung ganz ohne Sterne abgeben.

    Die Bücher von S.Meyer sind schon schlimm.. aber dieser Schmachfetzen toppt sie. Ich habe mir volle 4 Stunden angetan um herauszufinden, ob doch noch eine Idee hinter der Sache steht. Die Idee ist f........ 2 min was anderes, wieder f.............. und das in Endlosschleife. Die Figuren sind solche Stereotype, dass es wirklich weh tut. Ich sehe keinen Gesichtspunkt unter dem mann /frau sich das hier antun könnte. Grauenhaft langweilig. Ich glaube auch die Sprecherin hat gelitten, für mich klingt sie gequält.
