it was amazing
bookshelves: fave-books

This is Vishous , 'V's story. You find out a whole lot about Vishous in this book.

'Zsadist' made me 'feel' for him in his story, 'Lover Awakened', but , Vishous life was horrendous.

There was one point in this book where I was up the river parked , sitting in my car reading , watching my kids in playground, Christina Aguilera slow song was playing on radio, maybe it was the song...but!! I just blubbered with poor 'V'.

Phury I respect even more after reading this book. He may be the quietly written Brother in the series but he is such a selfless , thoughtful character. Some readers may think boring, but I beg to differ.

I'm loving John and his two buds. They are great fun and I think will continue to be :D

I thought my eyes were boggling at the uber smexi scenes before I got to book 5...OMG!!!! J.R Ward takes it up a notch. The thing I like about the smexi scenes is it's about the characters personality, not 'just because, or for the sake of it'. To be honest, I think this series could be written without the 'hot tamale' scenes and would still be brilliant books. Sure the 'hot tamale' scenes are ..well...wow!!! but!! that's not why I love these books. They are a part of the very male characters but not the whole story.

The characters are just awesomely ( if that's a word) written. The changing POV's . The 'POW's that you get are great. Wonderful 'POW' in this book, didn't see that one coming. J.R can one minute make you feel emotion that tugs at your heart and then the next you are bursting out laughing.

The characters layers get really peeled back. The emotions J.R Ward makes you feel in each book are quite memorable. I'm in for the long haul with this series, they are very addictive.

The Vishous at the start of this series to the Vishous at the end of this book has come a long way:D

My top three guys are:

Zsadist - So sad to see his story, but so glad at the way he has come out of it.
Butch - Didn't really dig Butch at first but then he won me over, very loyal.
Vishous - I didn't think I would have put 'V' in there until I read his story...his pain ..wow!!!

“There aren't any syringes." Red Sox came over and held a sterile pack out. When she tried to take it from him, he kept a grip on the thing. "I know you'll use this wisely."
"Wisely?" She snapped the syringe out of his hand. "No, I'm going to poke him in the eye with it. Because that's what they trained me to do in medical school.”

“Red Sox looked around Jane at the patient, “Your mind reading coming back?”

“With her? Sometimes?”

“Huh. You getting anything from anyone else?”

“Nope.”

Red Sox repositioned his hat. “Well, ah…let me know if you pick up shit from me, k? There are some things that I’d prefer to keep private, feel me?”

“Roger that. Although I can’t help it sometimes.”

“Which is why I’m going to take up thinking about baseball when you’re around.”

“On the chessboard of his godforsaken existence, the pieces were lined up, the play preordained. Man, so many times in life you didn't get to pick your path because the way you went was decided for you.

Free will was such bullshit.

“And Vishous. . . V was the worst of them. He stood by the door, staring into space. Icy before, he was glacial now, a sinkhole in the room.

J.R. Ward
“I believe there's a hand that guides us. It just isn't always a gentle one. Or one that seems fair at the time. But I dunno, I try to trust in it now. When I freak, I just try to... shit, I guess trust in it. Because at the end of the day, what else can you do? Choice only gets you so far. Reasoning and planning too. The rest... it's up to someone else. Where we end up, who we know, what happens to the people we love... we don't have a lot of control over any of it.”

“All of us are taking the night off," Wrath said abruptly. "We need some regroup time."

Rhage snorted from across the table. "You're not going to make us play Monopoly again, are you?"

Yup." A collective groan rose up from the Brotherhood, one that Wrath ignored. "Right after dinner.”

Yup.”
