I have been a fan of the Dark Series since the beginning, what in the world has happened?! These last few stories have been a huge disappointment! Tatijana & Branislava have both spent years trapped, enslaved in a cave...both are supposed to be strong Dragonseeker women....and both just roll over and bow down when their "lifemate" appears....REALLY????!! The last few stories have been so full of filler that it's distracting. Yes, it's nice that she did research into Futhark runes, it's nice that there are spells...but there is so spell casting, so much in the Carpathian language (that is translated ad-nauseum) that it really becomes annoying and it also becomes extremely evident that the story is just too weak to stand on it's own. The over-use of repetitive pet names in French and the continual Carpathian language (which really, does not need to be said in Carpathian and then translated each and every friggin time)...becomes eye-roll worthy. If I heard them refer to the "Guardians of All" in Carpathian one more time in Carpathian...and distinguish them from plain ole mix breeds....I was going to turn it into a drinking game.
Truly, I am so disappointed In the past there were humans or other breeds that naturally caused conflict with conversion, there was angst in the changing on both sides....there's none of that in these last few books and it's BORING! I really wonder, who is doing the writing now...because this is just not typical Feehan style.
Aside from the writing let me address the narrators. Normally I really like Phil Gigante, but the accents this time drove me nuts, with both performers not just Phil...honestly the women were more distracting for me than the men, I couldn't tell what they were supposed to be. One would assume they should have a Romanianeque accent...but everyone sounded like a bad British accent of some type. Really, get some variety. Learn to make each their own.
All in all, this one was a huge disappointment. Back to Dark Gold, or Dark Melody, Dark Symphony...anything but these last few!!!

I have read all of the dark books since the beginning. This one for some reason just didn't sit well. I don't know if Mrs Feehan is tired of the story line or was just rushed to get something put out. It didn't ri g tire to the other books I have read
