it was amazing
bookshelves: erotica, paranormal

The Black Dagger Brotherhood is full of alpha males who talk in a somewhat stilted formal language that is liberally salted with epithets, tend to be hardheaded and opinionated, dress in leather or other fascinating outfits, bristle with weapons and whom all love with an intensity that is mind-boggling. Given that they spend most of their 'free' time fighting to the death or recuperating from their potentially life-threatening injuries, it is amazing that they can form lasting relationships. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who you're contemplating, they can, and Tohrment is still paying the price for that after the brutal loss of his mate and their child. Bullied by the mysterious angel Lassiter into returning to the mansion even though he is a listless apathetic shadow of his former self, Tohr continues to just go through the motions. His condition weighs heavily on John Matthew who is not only mourning their mutual loss and worrying about his adoptive father but is also dealing with his own issues, especially related to his having bonded with Xhex. Add in the attacks upon Wrath, the complications of No'One (the female who birthed Xhex) and the presence of yet another vampire who seems to be trying to capture the drug trade single-handedly and one could ALMOST be overwhelmed by all of the action. Fortunately, Ms Ward is able to keep all of the storylines flowing in her inimitable style and the reader is swept along on a white-knuckled ride that enthralls and entertains. The intensity of loyalty and love contrasted with the wrenching choices that many of these charismatic beings must make combine to make this another fantastic chapter in the series. Another book that you hate to see end because then you have to wait impatiently for the next in the series. Keep a tissue handy because this description of a year in the life of the BDB is an emotional journey!
