Publisher's Summary

A rumor has persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer - a woman - who travels with a wolf pack and who destroys any vampire who crosses her path. Mysterious, elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror into the hearts of the undead.

She is Ivory Malinov. Her only brethren, the wolves. Long ago betrayed by her people, abandoned by her family, and cast out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived centuries without companionship or love. She has sustained her sanity by preparing for one purpose - to destroy her greatest enemy. Until the night she picks up the scent of a man, her unexpected salvation. Her lifemate. The curse of all Carpathian women.

He is Razvan. Branded a criminal, detested and feared, he is a dragonseeker borne of one of the greatest Carpathian lineages, only to be raised as its most despised - and captive - enemy. Fleeing from his lifetime of imprisonment, Razvan now seeks the dawn to end his terrible existence. Instead he has found his deliverance in the Dark Slayer.

In spirit, in flesh and blood, in love, and in war, Ivory and Razvan are made for each other.

For as long as they dare to live.

Brilliant

This is the story of Ivory Malinov and Razvan. Ivory known as the rumored Dark Slayer who hunts and travels with wolves strikes terror into vampires. She was long ago betrayed and cast aside by her family and her people. Razvan. Branded a criminal, detested and feared, he is a dragonseeker borne of one of the greatest Carpathian lineages, only to be raised as its most despised--and captive--enemy. Fleeing from his lifetime of imprisonment, Razvan now seeks the dawn to end his terrible existence. Instead he has found his deliverance in the Dark Slayer. In spirit, in flesh and blood, in love, and in war, Ivory and Razvan are made for each other. For as long as they dare to live. This tale is at times deeply sad and at other times hilarious and I loved it and the way it is told in this audio book. I highly recommend it and the series as a whole.

Loved it!!

I loved it!! I loved the fact that they had two voices instead of a man trying to do a woman's voice or a woman trying to do a man's voice. I loved the fact that they used accents and actually spoke the carpathian words as well. All of Christine's Carpathian books should be done with a man and a women for the voices. Monotone of just one person just does not do justice to her Carpathian books. This Book excelled all the others with the exception of Dark Celebration. Wish there were more readings like it.

Dark Slayer: Book 20 -- My favorite yet

I absolutely loved this book! I LOVED the narrators! They made it fun for me and interesting. I wouldn't mind more of the books to be read in by that group. It was easier and made it easy to listen...even though I missed my exit and had to back-track back to my destination. It was a fun. I've listened to most of the books and there are some that are great, some good, and some ok. This one and Dark Demon are my favorite!

Great

I love the way the author keeps to the story line and not skip here there and everywhere. I also like the narrators. The only thing I didn't like is that they have the American Women speaking with an accent. Looking forward to the next book. I hope the author brings out the hints that were brought out in this book about Syndel and Ivory possibly being related.

I can't do it! I just can't do it...

Would you ever listen to anything by Christine Feehan again?

No. I have started and stopped this Book so many times... I give up. Its my worst Audible Purchase to date. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Phil Gigante. That's why I bought this title. The Book and Jane Brown are horrible. A good Narrator can make me enjoy a lack luster title... but here you have a bad performance from Jane Brown, Phil not in the Lead Role... and a terrible story line... I have no idea what these people were thinking with the reviews they have given this title.

OMG What a waste of a credit!

Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Phil Gigante and Jane Brown ?

I picked this book because I enjoy Phil Gigante. I really like how he reads a story. Seems it needs to be a good story though.

What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?

I bought the latest book to see if I would like it. Then start from the beginning. I couldn't get past the first 10 chapters.... All this language that no one understands. It just drags on and on and on!

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

Disappointment

Excellent Narration, Excellent Story... but...

THE BOOK: I have mixed feelings about this book. While i absolutely LOVE the story and the characters and every other thing about it... I absolutely DETEST the use of the Carpathian language. When reading, i skip over it. When listening, it just irritates me. I'm also not fond of the reading of the healing chant or all the spells used by the heroine. It's distracting and I thought the way it was done in earlier books, "they all sang the ancient healing chant quietly" worked just fine. If the author/publisher (whomever decided this was a good idea) wants to use the language, once or twice or having the hero call the heroine a pet name in that language is fine. but to continually use it, followed by the English translation is just annoying beyond belief. It's really a shame too because the story is SO very good.

THE NARRATION: I'm in love with having both a male and female narrator. It makes the POV shifts much more noticeable and, well, i just like it. Mr. Gigante did an excellent job with the Carpathian language and i love his smooth voice. Ms. Brown also had a very pleasing voice, silky voice. I loved the accents by both narrators. All in all, the narration made this book very enjoyable.

Dark Slayer by Phil Gigante & Jane Brown

Poorly performed with THICK difficult to understand Russian accents. The female voice has a distracting parkinsonian tremor that better identifies with an aging gypsy fortuneteller rather than a the book's heroine. This production of Dark Slayer is most disappointing and definitely Not recommended.
