Where's the story
What did you like best about Dark Promises? What did you like least?
I enjoyed the banter between Trixie and Fane. I did not like the fact that the storyline was all but missing in this book.
What does Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Phil did a great job as usual. Natalie's voice is beautiful however sometimes her volume is so low that is is hard to hear her even on the highest volume setting. I wish she would increase her volume or that the recording is set at a higher setting so that it is easier to hear.
Could you see Dark Promises being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
The Series yes definitely, this particular book no.
Any additional comments?
Christine Feehan's Dark Series has been one of my favorite series for the last 10 years; however I was really disappointed with this book. Where was the storyline? It was completely missing and there was absolutely no character development. I was never able to warm up to Gabrielle and mostly just wanted to shake her. I think that bringing in a second heroine with Trixie was the best part of the book as I enjoyed her wit and humor. Unfortunately, we never really get any information on the two male leads in this book, and are left guessing at every turn as to their pasts and where they come into the Carpathian community, only a small tidbit mentioning Vlad and precognition. This book did nothing to further the series plot.
Normally I enjoy a good love/sex scene but this seemed to be a non-stop roller coaster of sex. With the lack of any real development and the sheer volume of the sex, on a whole it fell flat of the normal emotion between the well-developed characters of the past. By taking the sex scenes out you would not even be left with a short Novella.

Is it my imagination or are we getting more sex and less plot. I'm. beginning to think the Carpathians deserve their troubles since they spend 90% of their time messing around. I was hoping the women would be more equally appreciated..
