Description: J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood novels have introduced readers to a "different, creative, dark, violent, and flat-out amazing" (All About Romance)world. Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male's loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested-and his dangerous mixed blood revealed...
Caldwell, New York, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It's also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and owner of a notorious night club that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he's approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King and leader of the Brotherhood.
Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood-even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him-and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction:
Review: This book is based on Rhevenge and Ehlena. Rhevenge being a drug lordand is half vamp/half sympath and Ehelena being a nurse, yeah you wouldn't think putting these two together would be a good match but I have to say it was. Rhev is not one of the brother but with all the good deeds he made in this book I think he has more then the right to be classed as one. Poor Rhev struggle with his Sympath side and spend half to book triing to hide it from everyone and as you can imagine this make it very hard for him to meet the love of his life. While he is getting treatment to keep his sympath side under control he meets Ehlena and he likes her , you would think this would make him go after her but no it is Ehlena who chases after him (which I love). Rhev is being blackmailed by his stalker woman and has to do really bad thing to stop her from telling people what he is.
Ehlena a nurse who was looking after Rhevenge. she is of good breeding but things took a turn for the worse and the family was left with nothing. this leads to Ehlena doing all she can to keep a roof over her family's head. When treating Rhev she falls for him and this leads her into bigger trouble as Rhev tries to do the right thing by her and walks out of her life. This leads to him going missing and she teams up with Xhex and going to the brotherhood for help. OMFG the action takes off as they set off in search for him and the have to fight to save him.
I'm gonna have to say after reading the last two books I really wasn't looking forward to reading this book. But I'm really happy to say it was so much better then the last two AND I'm happy I kept reading.
JR Ward is an amazing writer who was able to come back from a flop
