Publisher's Summary

He woke deep within the ground, and the first sensation he felt was hunger. An overwhelming hunger for blood that demanded satisfaction. But as he hunted the dark streets of Paris for prey, a voice called to him, soothing, calming, giving him the strength to control his craving.

Francesca Del Ponce was a healer, a woman who radiated goodness as powerfully as the sun did light. But surely his obsession with her would turn him as his twin brother had turned, leaving the world with two monsters instead of one.

Terrible narration!

The narrator for this novel completely ruined the story for me. It was atrocious!!!! I've heard him read many stories, but never as poorly as this one. It left me feeling let down and I just couldn't get into the novel as I usually can. I felt distracted by the narration. Maybe he had a cold? I returned the book to Audible, it was so bad! I've not done that before!

Great story, annoying narrator

His nasal and over excited voice was grating and his consistent massacring of the name Lucian and Gregori was very annoying and distracting.

narrator

Difficult in distinguishing between between between which character he was talking in at times. He didn't change voice very much for characters.

Ugh! Bad name pronunciation.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think it would be great to check on how the names should be pronounced. This isn't the first book in the series that ends up pronouncing names differently than other books in the series. I wonder if anyone though to ask the author how to pronounce the names. Consistency would be nice.

What didn’t you like about Patrick Lawlor’s performance?

The way he pronounced the names. Very distracting.

Was Dark Legend worth the listening time?

The performance was very distracting. I won't recommend it to my friends.

Worst Narration ever heard in a Romance Book!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The storyline was great! Whoever chose this narrator should be fired.

What did you like best about this story?

The continuation of the story plots are good.

Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Lawlor’s performances?

Absolutely NOT!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. The narration was SO bad, I could hardly stand to finish the book.

Any additional comments?

Whoever thought Mr. Lawlor could be the voice of a romantic Carpathian, (one of the strongest of the characters to date), has chosen badly. No changes in tone or voice to differentiate the characters but worse, NO SEX APPEAL WHAT-SO-EVER!

the narration is terrible

Where does Dark Legend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

bottom

What other book might you compare Dark Legend to and why?

Books in this series narrated by Richard Ferrone.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He continued to mispronounce Lucian name, it became so irritating. I have listen to other books where Lucian's name is pronounce correctly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

could not finish it, based on the narrator.

Any additional comments?

The author or someone who knows these books should be involved in choosing the narrator. Someone need to do some quality control during production. This is not the first book in this series where the narration is terrible.

Excellent!!

Greater love hath no Carpathian than to extend his life for his twin. This was a true tale of love, sacrifice, hardship, compassion and the blessing of a light at the end of a very long, dark, painful tunnel. Extremely well written.

story is brilliant but narrator, NO

I love this book and have read it numerous times so thought to get it on audible but from the first, the narration was awful. Its narrated by an American but the characters and place is European!
