New enemies rise from the shadows in the next novel of the New York Times bestselling paranormal romance series the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Having allied themselves with the Band of Bastards, the Brotherhood is committed now more than ever to eradicating the Lessening Society. Recovering from their most recent battle against the last of the lessers, the Brotherhood comes to realize that the fight against their enemies is far from over.

Throe, Xcor’s former second in command, is using an ancient tome to summon a new army engineered by a force more dangerous and evil than the Omega.

And now the brothers of the Black Dagger Brotherhood will be tested both at home and on the battlefield.

Review~

What do you get when you cross Pretty Woman, Norman Reedus and JR Ward? A pretty amazing book if you ask me. There was a mention of Norman that had me smiling and then she went and quoted my favorite movie in this book. I died a few times. LOL

 

I see you, he thought. And you are beautiful to me.

 

I”ve been excited for Assail’s book since was introduced. He was one that caught my eye and I was craving to know more and get inside his head. Sola was a lot more then I planned on though. She was fearless and knew who she was and didn’t take crap from anyone. She was so bad ass and so perfect for him. I loved every minute of their story.

 

“I’ve missed you,” he blurted. “More than I’ve wanted to admit – and now that you’re here with me, I can’t figure out why I worked so fucking hard to avoid telling you that.”

 

Jane and Vishous. That was rough and I wasn’t expecting all of that. I am loving that we get to revisit these guys and see their relationships evolve and change but man – it hurts sometimes. I did enjoy this visit with one the originals more than some of the others. Maybe because I always loved Vishous or maybe because this catch up felt a little more real compaired to the others. I’m not sure but I liked it a lot. The part that gutted me the most was Lassiter’s involvement in this. You’ll see when you read it, so full of heartbreak there.

 

“But sometimes that was all you could do-just pour your hope and love into your partner because they needed the support, even though it arguably wasn’t going to change or improve what was really going on.”

 

The new “enemy” and the new “Scribe Virgin” – I can’t wait for more of this. It’s exciting and so much win I am on the edge of my seat. Especially the replacement for the SV, I am dying to know more about that. Oh and that thing that Vishous finds out – I KNEW IT!! The build up for the next book was fantastic and had me hooked right away. Yes, this is book 16 but I am just as hooked as I was in the beginning. I hope you are reading this series and if you are not then tsk tsk. Get on it!

 

 

“Just so you know, I wish I had never treated you back at St Francis. I wish I had been off that night when you came in.”
