** spoiler alert ** I feel like a broken record but I can't help it. This series is so much more than just a paranormal romance series. There are a lot of issues, yes issues you can relate to, and many many emotions. Emotions all over the place. The characters have flaws but you're gradually led to love and support them.

Based on the nature of his work, Rehv, even though I've loved him from the first moment he was introduced, is a hard one to like probably. He's a pimp, he's a drug lord, he does bad stuff. And he's forced to be kinky as well for a certain personal secret. But you can't help but love him, at least the case for me, and Ehlena was a good heroine. She was quite the opposite of Rehv actually, for her own line of work. She's a nurse, it's in her nature to help people and she's not a big fan of the drugs, in fact, there's a part where she weighs her feelings for Rehv while thinking back to all the overdose cases brought to the clinic. But once we get to go deep in Rehv's story with Ehlena we realize he's punishing himself for something that is not his fault and he actually believes he deserves the kind of life he lives and all the kinds of adjectives that describe him.

I also loved his relationship with his family, and finding out about his story was very touching. He truly has a good heart and a good example of differences not mattering. I'm glad he had his own book, even though he had to share it with Wrath a little, and I'm glad his vampire side was able overrun his sympath side.

My urge to read about other characters is very strong, I really really want a book for Qhuinn and Blay, apparently Ward said something about them although I don't know what it is, but I feel like I don't want them to end up with anyone but each other.

And oh my God, Lassiter! He should have a book of his own too!! Love LOVE the guy!

“Oh, man there's a marathon of Beaches running tomorrow night. Can we go after ten so I can see it once all the way through?"

Everyone in the room turned to the blond-and-black haired guy, who was propped in the corner, massive arms over his chest.

What," he said. "Look, it's not Mary Tyler Moore, 'kay? So you can 't give me shit."

Vishous, the one with the black glove on his hand, glared across the room. "It's worse than Mary Tyler Moore. And to call you and idiot would be an insult to half-wits around the world."

Are you kidding me? Bette Midler rocks. And I love the ocean. Sue me."

Vishous glanced at the king. "You told me I could beat him. You promised."

As soon as you come home," Wrath said as he got to his feet, "we'll hang him up by his armpits in the gym and you can use him as a punching bag."

Thank you, baby Jesus."

Blond-and-Black shook his head. "I swear, one of these days I'm going to leave."

As one, the Brothers all pointed to the open door and let silence speak for itself.

You guys suck.”

“The staircase that was revealed was lit with a soft red glow.
I feel like I'm walking down into a porn movie," V muttered as they took the steps with care.
Wouldn't that require more black candles for you," Zsadist cracked.
At the bottom of the landing, they looked left and right down a corridor carved out of stone, seeing row after row of...black candles with ruby color flames.
I take that back," Z said, eyeing the display.
We start hearing chick-a-wow-wow shit," V cut in, "can I start calling you Z-packed?"
Not if you want to keep breathing.”
