Skyler the young ( in both human and Carpathian therms), Lifemate to Dimitri decides to rescue Dimitri from his brutal imprisonment by the Lycans. She and her friends, Josef and Paul, make a plan to go and rescue Dimitri. Her sensual and psychic connection to Dimitri is so strong that she is able to find him when older Carpathians have failed. She has felt that the adults and the powerful in her world have left Dimitri to die. She and friends, who are all related to powerful Carpathian families, develop a plan to rescue him and hopefully, not start a war.
When Skyler, Josef, and Paul are wounded in the attempt, their powerful relatives suddenly know and come to get them. A war just might be started anyway.
The life lessons that one finds in the Dark Series are illustrative . The adult Carpathians and the Prince did not really forget about Dimitri and wanted to rescue him, they never included Skyler in their plans for this. However, in the end, they needed the “children “ to show them the way and in this vein have faith and trust in them. Dark Wolf is erotic when focused on the relationships between Lifemates. The beautiful and powerful sensuality only serves to underline the intensity of their “eternal” and matchless relationships.
The audio version is hands over fists better than the print version. It is wonderful to sit back and have a talented narrator read to you. Overall: This has become a favorite. The plot is new and fresh and mixes light hearted playfulness with somber far reaching themes.
I am never disappointed with Feehan’s Carpathian series.

This book was long awaited by fans of C. Feehan's Carpathian series. Skyler, the heroine, was introduced to readers of the series when she was a young, terribly abused child. We've watched her grow up. We read about her meeting with her lifemate, Dimitri, way back in Dark Celebration. She was too young at the time (16 if I remember correctly) for Dimitri to "claim" her, but they have a telepathic bond and have been communicating, getting to know one another, since they met.
Circumstances have conspired to end their wait to be together. Dimitri is being held hostage by the Lycans, subjected to a torture that could end his immortal life. The Carpathian people are embroiled in negotiations with the Lycans, who have assured them that Dimitri is being treated well. Skyler, now 19 but with life experience well beyond her years, knows something dreadful is happening when Dimitri fails to respond to her telepathically. She and two of her young friends embark on a daring mission to rescue Dimitri.
As with most books in this series, the action is fast paced and more or less continuous. The romance in this book is possibly more tender than some of the relationships in previous books, but that's how it should be given Skyler's past. Dimitri did not come off quite as "cavemanish" as some Carpathian males do, and for that I was grateful.
I really enjoyed how they brought a good deal of the characters from previous books together in this book and gave them a part to play. It was almost like catching up with old friends.
But lets face it folks, the very best part of this audio book was the stunningly brilliant narration. Having heard both readers before, I was overjoyed when I saw they were narrating this much anticipated book. It sounded more like a performance than a narration. The switches from male to female reader was seamless and flawless. It was pure perfection from both of them. For me, their narration stole the show! Well done Phil and Natalie! Well done indeed!
