#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s Black Daggar Brotherhood series continues as the cold heart of a cunning predator is warmed against its will...
 
Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous, son of the Bloodletter, possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father’s war camp, he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time—until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that cannot include her....

    I really like the different story lines these are starting to do. I’m really really interested in John’s story and can’t wait till they point 2 & 2 together. I think Z will figure it out first.

    My feelings about this book were so complicated they compelled me to write my first ever review. **Spoilers ahead** A GHOST?! She's dead and...A GHOST?! This is a PNR not the Discovery Channel after dark right?!? Let's start over: We waited patiently for V's story, and it delivered right up until it imploded; and there's nothing as perturbing and disappointing as having a solid story go off the rails. You have an incredibly vivid and interesting character in V, then - in an all too rare occurrence - actually wrote a strong female love interest worthy of a great story. There were plenty of plot choices along the way serving as markers of an aging series. Some choices I liked or found livable, V's connection with Butch, teeing up John's pairing (presumably), Phury taking V's place. Some choices I found irritating, like a supposed maternal, benevolent deity being so irritatingly...... human. Also, God knows I think we're all hoping this was a setup for an overhaul of The Chosen canon. But it all comes down to the end for me. This chapter in the BDB wildly departed from Ward's own universe rules, in what had to be the sloppiest, most disappointing resolution I've ever read (but still better than Dexter so, silver lining?). Again, I ask you, she's dead and...A GHOST?! This is a PNR not an episode of Crossing Over with John Edwards right?!?? I've seen some humorous reviews alleging the jump from vampires and lessers to ghosts isn't that big - but it ACTUALLY IS. This broke all the rules - to manifest a fantastic, if incongruous ending? No, to bring about a disappointment of M. Night Shyamalan proportions. It honestly would've been less upsetting if Bruce Willis showed up at the end to tell us she was a ghost the whole time... Both V and Jane deserved way better. After such a fun, compelling, edgy ride, this was like landing in kiddie pool of Legos. If you need me, I'll be on a street corner somewhere holding a sign saying "Justice for Vishous + Jane."

    This one was a total let down. It was drawn out for no apparent reason and it was very Wierd. It deserved less than a 4 star but due to the high of the other books prior, It survived a 4. This book was creepy, boring, and should have been better. I hope the next book is a comeback. Disappointed.

    Not digging all the gay stuff and rape in this. I really liked the first few books but now they are going out on the rails a bit. People read romances to get lost in the pages which is not easy to do when every other reference is about gay sex or gay rape. Plus the s&m stuff was not a turn on in 50 Shades and it isn't here. You end up just thinking these characters are bonkers. I read romances for the love story and ball gags don't scream love to me even if the author tries to make it mainstream by saying it's consensual. This book was a let down and I hope the series doesn't continue to this go this route. Also why are all the females not attractive and in some cases manly? Again we read these to get lost in a fantasy of beautiful people with lots of money not to read about some flat chested female or masculine buzz cut security guard that somehow snags not one but TWO male leads interests? No way not believing that for a second.
  • So much potential ruined

    I loved V and his relationship. I loved that Jane was smart and witty. Everything was setup great though predictable in a lot of areas (to be expected). I loved that this is the first book out of the series that seemed to have real consequences. I feel like past books set everything up great but the actual peak had no real substance behind it. This one felt like it was real. BUT THEN THE ENDING. I couldn’t do it. Threw everything off for me. YIKES. It was cringeworthy. Read it for sure, because everything leading up to the end is great. But it was a smidge too out there for me.
  • Love this series!

    Every one of these books has a brand new angle on the life of Brotherhood. I never know what will happen next, but I always enjoy the way each line of the plot is strained with conflict then resolved in unexpected ways. I was very satisfied with the experience of elements of both reality and fantasy mixed to perfection!

    Vishous's story and I loved it. Not only was it V but we had some Phury and John mixed. Spending time with this group of men and their women is all about the bond between the brothers and the connection they have to their women and how fiercely they cherish both relationships. I know that I am not the only one who finds this series to be amazing and because you learn about each one of the brothers you become vested in reading more of the nooks to find out their stories and she how things end up for them all.
  • Great read.

    This series is so well written and after the first few books, it still has you holding your breath. I can't wait to see what happens to the brothers next!!
