Publisher's Summary

They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light....

Alexandria Houton will sacrifice anything - even her life - to protect her orphaned little brother. But when both encounter an unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex can only cry to heaven for their deliverance.... And out of the darkness swoops Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious, than any other creature of the night. The ageless Carpathian male snatches them from a hideous fate. But is Aidan Alex's salvation...or her sin? If she surrenders to Aidan's savage, unearthly seduction, and gives him the color, the light, the family he craves, will Alex truly save her brother? Or sacrifice more than her life?

Good book bad narration

I liked the original version better. The narrator for this version isn't as good. He isn't as able to bring the characters to life.

6 Stars

Wish you could rate higher than 5 Stars... Read this book many years ago. Just Loved hearing this story. Seams to really expand the story to hear someone protecting the feeling of Christine Feehan characters.
Marc Bachmann did an excellent job.
A Must have in your library.

Carpathians in the U.S.

I was happy to hear Aidan’s story- the first Carpathian in the U.S. HOWEVER I found myself really annoyed with Alexandria. She careened between hysteria, anger, and TSTL. It got to the point where I couldn’t believe she could be a positive role model/parent for Joshua. He and Aidan; and Marie & Stefan made the story for me. And Gregori’s cameo - can’t wait for his comeuppance ;-)
Bachman’s voice is pleasant enough, and his projection of emotion improved as the story progressed, but it just doesn’t have enough character differentiation for my tastes.
Still a recommend if you want to follow the series.

Ugh Alex, Mmm Aiden, and its Gregori!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marc Bachmann?

I was not a fan of Marc Bachmann for mainly two reasons. One, every time he did a female voice I was jarred out of the story. They were awful.Two, his pronunciation of Gregori was totally wrong. I made be biased but it hurt every time.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, Alex was probably the most annoying lady in the series. Ugh, she got on my nerves for like 3/4 of the book. Aiden and the rest of the characters were awesome.

Any additional comments?

I have read the series before ages ago but listening to them on audible is a new experience and an exciting one.

Love the Story the narrator not so much

I love the Carpathian Series. I'm usually drawn to both main characters. This book however, I couldn't like the lead female. A lot of her actions were contradictory to her supposed beliefs. It was annoying at best. This I c

Narrator

Didn't enjoy the narrator at all! Story was good but the overall experience was definitely lessened.

Didn't enjoy.

I read this book a few years ago and enjoyed it enough for me to re-read it a few times. I loved charismatic Aiden and enjoyed the fantasy storyline. Having now had to change to audio books and knowing the book very well, i was really keen to hear this story. It was so disappointing - the narration was at times annoying, didn't capture the male protagonist's character and the voice used for the female lead Alexandria was the type of voice that men use use when they're taking the p##$ out of a woman.
I'm really sorry to leave a bad review but I just couldn't finish the book. In fact I hated it so much I'm a bit gutted.
