In Caldwell, New York, war rages between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Now the cold heart pf a cunning predator will be 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 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 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...


This is Vishous , 'V's story. You find out a whole lot about Vishous in this book.

'Zsadist' made me 'feel' for him in his story, 'Lover Awakened', but ,  Vishous life was horrendous.

There was one point in this book where I was up the river parked , sitting in my car reading , watching my kids in playground, Christina Aguilera slow song was playing on radio, maybe it was the song...but!! I just blubbered with poor 'V'. 

Phury I respect even more after reading this book. He may be the quietly written Brother in the series but he is such a selfless , thoughtful character. Some readers may think boring, but I beg to differ.

I'm loving John and his two buds. They are great fun and I think will continue to be :D

I thought my eyes were boggling at the uber smexi scenes before I got to  book 5...OMG!!!! J.R Ward takes it up a notch. The thing I like about the smexi scenes is it's about the characters personality, not 'just because, or for the sake of it'. To be honest, I think this series could be written without the 'hot tamale' scenes and would still be brilliant books. Sure the 'hot tamale' scenes are ..well...wow!!! but!! that's not why I love these books. They are a part of the very male characters but not the whole story.

The characters are just awesomely ( if that's a word) written. The changing POV's . The 'POW's that you get are great. Wonderful 'POW' in this book, didn't see that one coming. J.R can one minute make you feel emotion that tugs at your heart and then the next you are bursting out laughing.

The characters layers get really peeled back.  The emotions J.R Ward makes you feel in each book are quite memorable. I'm in for the long haul with this series, they are very addictive.

The Vishous at the start of this series to the Vishous at the end of this book has come a long way:D

My top three guys are:

Zsadist - So sad to see his story, but so glad at the way he has come out of it.
Butch - Didn't really dig Butch at first but then he won me over, very loyal.
Vishous - I didn't think I would have put 'V' in there until I read his story...his pain ..wow!!!
