I was so captivated with all that was happening I could not put it down. With a slow start JR Ward led you into several outstanding plots going on in one book.
It all came togeather in the end. Hot Hot love scenes set the stage to unbelieveable plots that kept you spell bound to the very end. Raves and congrats for a magnificent book.

This was a good book. It was not as good as some of the other ones in the series. I can not wait to read the next one, since this one seemed to end abruptly.

Gotta love Phury!!
Phury, the new Primale(it was V until Phury helped his brother out and took his place(see the previous book Lover Unbound)), will do his duty an be mated to the Chosen Corminia. When he realizes that he wants ONLY her---the Primale's got a problem because he is supposed to mate with 40 chosen--not good!! Corminia has also realized she doesn't want to share. Phury makes a suggestion to the Scribe Virgin that it is time for things to change---which suprisingly she agrees to.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-04-21 Wards's terrific latest picks up the Black Dagger Brotherhood of vampires where Lover Unbound left off. Phury, a sworn Brother who has also become the Primale, is wrestling with a destiny he doesn't want, an addiction he can't handle and an insurmountable feeling of inadequacy that bleeds over into his love for Cormia, his Chosen First Mate. He holes up at the Brotherhood's rural New York base. The Omega, bent on destroying the vampire race, is meanwhile growing ever stronger, and his long-held plan to destroy the Brothers, via the Lessening Society, is coming to fruition. Younger Brotherhood trainees John Matthew, Qhuinn and Blaylock are learning what it means to come of age and are immersed in their own drama with Qhuinn's malicious cousin, Lash. The stories all reach a shared climax, leading to explosive revelations that set up the next book beautifully. Focusing less on Phury and Cormia and more on the Omega's plot amps the tension on all sides. A subplot involving Rhevenge, John Matthew and the female symphath Xhex is particularly exciting, with Ward diving into varied subspecies, sexual predilections and questions of identity. Ward has outdone herself with this latest Brotherhood novel. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
