Mikhail Dubrinsky is the Prince of the Carpathian people and the hero of Dark Prince, the first book of the Dark Series.
Mikhail Dubrinsky was born in the Carpathian Mountains and at the behest of the Dark Twins, Lucian and Gabriel, ascended his father's title of Prince of the Carpathians after the death of his parents during the Ottoman Turk wars.
At the beginning of Dark Prince, Mikhail is contemplating walking into the dawn, weary of the hopelessness he sees in the fate of his race. He is however halted from his thoughts at the intriguing telepathic conversation a young human woman initiates with him. He soon realizes the woman, Raven Whitney, is his lifemate.
