Wow, to read this book only once for review was not enough. I had to read it twice before I could literally wrap my head around everyone’s current situations. Most J.R. Ward fans have seen John Mathew (JM) grow up, so to speak. It is absolutely amazing to see him finally fulfill his dreams, and after so much loss and pain that he is still able to love another is simply amazing as well.
I am in complete awe of Ms. Ward’s character development, she has a way of making her characters vulnerable yet inpenitrable all at the same time; only to be touched by the one person who will share thier life.
The plot is insane as is the changes we get to see JM go through in his hunt for Xhex and vengeance against the evil Lash. He is practically an entirely different person (vampire?) from the start of the book to the end.
This is an amazing read and a wonderful edition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
The hot new novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood by the #1 New York Times bestselling author John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown. Taken in by The Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was-or his true identity. Xhex has long steeled herself against the attraction to John Matthew. Until fate intervenes and she discovers that love, like destiny, is inevitable.
