Great story, annoying voice

The narrator needs to learn to pronounce Lucian and Gregori and his nasal voice is grating. I listened because of my appreciation of the story, but it was not without effort.

Disappointed

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The narration wasn't very good. Lucian's name was mispronounced repeatedly.

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

The way he pronounced Lucian's name

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Different narrator.

NARRATOR CONTINUALLY BUTCHERS MAIN CHARACTERS NAME

This is the 2nd story in this series (which I love) that is narrated by a narrator who legitimately cannot pronounce the main character’s name...last book I hoped it to be a fluke.....this story, which focuses on Lucian (the name he can’t pronounce)...it is not only distracting, but COME ON....is there no one, who in the process of producing this audiobook, could’ve told this guy how to say a name he’d have to repeat about 475 times over the course of 12 hours????? I mean really!!! The story is good (Lucian is one of my favorite Carpathians), but the narration kills it. It’s really frustrating. It might seem like a small thing to make a big deal about, but if you listen to as many audiobooks as I do - and enjoy Christine Feehan’s work as I do - you might agree with my feelings on this. The narrator is also not a good fit for depicting such a strong lead as Lucian is...I could never imagine Lucian sounding the way the narrator speaks. It took something from it for me, in spite of loving the story & the series.

poor performance

The story is great. The original narrator was great but this narrator "SUCKS". The voice is like nails on a chalk board.

another good book

mis-pronouncation of names and words is very disturbing. it takes something from the story. I think the readers should get together and learn how to say the names and differed words.

Great story but

Great story however the narrator killed this book. it was a struggle to get through. There was no power, emotion, or connection to the characters because the narrator was that bad!!!

New Narrator?

I love the Dark series. I actually have all the books in the series. I also have tried the audible books. But......... the narrator of this book made it very hard to listen to. There was not much difference in the female and male voices. The tonal quality was just not right for this story line.

Dark Guarduan

Jaxson is one badass female character! I love her feistiness and iron will. Lucian is the ultimate Carpathian. Swoon worthy! Their storyline was very well written. The narration of this book was amazing!

Good story

As usual the story was entertaining. I love the creativity of the author. I did think there was too much dialogue repeated to make a point. I got it after the 2nd or 3rd time.

wish it was a different narrator

I don't find the voice masculine enough to portray a carpathian male.

He says Lucian with a chi sound. Theres no Ch sound. It irritates me every time, and he's a main character!
