I have been reading all the dark series - this is my 10th book. I was initially turned off because of the other reviews, but I have to disagree with them. I thought the action was great, loved all the men and women coming together and the romance was a plus. Narrators were fine as well. I recommend

Would you listen to Dark Curse again? Why?
No, I have read 19 of the Dark Series books and find it very frustrating for the characters that had great voices in the other books be reduced to the vampire drawl of Bella Lagosi. For example, Savannah who had such a great voice demonstrating a strong character was reduced to having a whiney Russian (I think) accent. Although I love the storyline, only when there is action, I cringed every time I heard the attempt at making, I guess, Romanian accents. Also, while I know these are part romance novels, the author spends way too much time describing every last detail. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't the same descriptions with the same outcome book after book.
What other book might you compare Dark Curse to and why?
This is my first vampire series. I try to stay away from repetitive material but now I am committed to finishing this series.
What didn’t you like about Phil Gigante and Jane Brown ’s performance?
I like when they used their own voices. It was horrible when they attempted to create accents for the characters. Can't believe Audible let them ruin the characters that way.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
No, think I have summed it up.

I have read this story along with many many others by Christine Feehan. She's an amazing author and I feel that this narrated version really takes so much from the story. The voices are badly accented and voice effects for when they are conversing mind to mind are ridiculous instead of sounding real.
I couldn't listen past chapter 2, and as there is no other narrated version of the book available I will read it instead and actually enjoy the wonderful writing rather than be distracted by silly voices. I wanted to listen to a story, not listen to bad voice acting interpretations.
