Rhage and Mary return in a new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a series “so popular, I don’t think there’s a reader today who hasn’t at least heard of [it]” (USA Today).
Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…
For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…
And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world...and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from...
Oh where to begin this review!
The main feature of this book is Rhage and Mary’s story which pleased me greatly. Witnessing their love story again was a thing of beauty that couldn't be denied.
A character named Bitty stole my heart for her situation and how it connected to Rhage and Mary was brilliant. There were three subplots or side stories that made this book completely awesome: Assail, Layla, and Jo Early.
The impact these three side stories are going to have major repercussions that will shake up what we know and love about The Black Dagger Brotherhood Universe.
I won't spoil the surprises because that would give too much away. You'll just have to see for yourself. Until next time Happy Reading!
