** spoiler alert ** I love this series so far, I couldn't put this book down. The story line captures you into the moment. The romance and desires draw you into the story.

Rhage (Hollywood) and Mary's relationship is great. I like how Rhage was was introduced as a guy who was basically a male hore just to get what he wanted so he could just feed and calm the dragon in side him that he was cursed with. I love the fearceness of the dragon and how protective it was. Rhage never knew he would meet the love of his life until he met Mary. Mary was special, she was dieing of cancer but she was very brave and strong willed/tough. When she was with Rhage, she brought the animal out of him - it was like she had two lovers Rhage/the dragon inside him.

All the other characters introduced and the black dagger brotherhood characters liven up the story with each of their own tells.

In the end, Rhage goes to the scribe virgin to beg her to save Mary and when she agrees upon his sacrafice of keeping the dragon inside him for life and not ever going around Mary again then on those terms the scribe virgin would give Mary eternal life but she would not know him. However, Mary is saved and given life eternal by the Scribe Virgin because she can not bare children and the Scribe Virgin allows her to go to Rhage and be apart of his life because the scribe virgin feels that Mary has already made the sacrafice of not being able to bare children and taking her from her true love would be to much to bare.

So the story ends happily ever after with Rhage and Mary, but the book leaves you wondering what will happen with the next brother in line and what happens to Bella, one of the new characters, since she was kidnapped by the lessers. Also the new character John who I believe is Daris (Beth's father) reincarniated from the first book - when will he go through his transition? Also the story between Butch and Marissa is still open.

Can't wait to get to the next book in the series.

Thanks Akra, I love Rhage! He is my favorite. I want a pet dragon - hee hee

Jacqueline *Laughs* God, don't we all! Rhage is definitely charming, galore! Though, I admit, I really, really like Phury...probably the best :P.
