Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

In this "frighteningly addictive" paranormal romance sage there's a war raging between vampires and their slayers. Here are the stories of a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. And now a dutiful twin must choose between two lives...

Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood's bloodlines alive. As Primale of the Chosen, he is obligated to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive, and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished.

As his first mater, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body, but his heart for herself. She is drawn to the noble responsibility behind the emotionally scarred male. But Phury has never allowed himself to know pleasure or joy. As the war with the Lessening Society grows grim, tragedy looms over the Brotherhood's mansion, and Phury must decide between duty and love....
This is Phury's story. Now I have heard /read that it isn't the most favoured book out of the series, but!!!  I really enjoyed it.
Lots to be learnt and Phury , being so selfless/ celibate isn't to be mistaken with being boring. I have a lot of respect for Phury.
Phury and Cormia end up with a bit of a forwards 1 step , backwards 2 steps until they find their mojo.
Phury and his "Wizard" ( mental drug demon that sits on his shoulder telling him what he shouldn't be doing). Phury is an addict and his layers need to be peeled back to save him from himself.
Phury's selfless acts come back to mentally haunt him. Bella is his addiction. Always drawing her, then consuming her portrait in ivy leaves to cover her up. He has sunk as low as he can go. Even a Brother has a limit.
Rhev must do what he must do to keep Xhex and himself safe.
Scribe Virgin has placed Vishous in the Primale role much to his dispair. Phury to the rescue. I always knew from book #1 that the limited number of Brothers who weren't servicing the Chosen in the way that was needed to keep the brothers population growing was going to finally be an issue. A brother is needed to be the Primale, to take it for the team and service 40 Chosen to bring the bubs into the world to replenish the brothers so there are always warriors in the future to take on the Lessers and Omega. With Tohr awol, that's another man down.
Rules need to be changed for the Brotherhood to be around to protect the Vampire world . Agreements need to be reached.
The Omega is stepping it up with an enormous twist in the Lesser world.
Blaylock ...well ...POW!!!!!! Qhuinn is still a fave with his behaviour. I can't help smiling at Qhuinn. A bond is formed with Qhuinn and John, not to be broken. John Matthews is certainly coming into himself .


Stress in a person was like air in a balloon. too much pressure, too much shit, too much bad news... and the birthday party gets messy.



  1. This book series has some really odd names! Phury? Do you say it like "Furry?" I'm giggling :D

  2. LOL!! @ Straylights...

    Um I think they are like power/anger/strong in Vicious = Vishous, Fury = Phury, Wrathe = Wrath, Pain = Payne, Sadist = Zsadist, Rage = Rhage, Destroyer = Dhestroyer, Revenge = Rhevenge, Torment = Tohrment...I think they are pretty cool names that J.R Ward used as in mostly just adding a H to change it up. Wish I had thought of them, my mortgage would be a framed piece of paper saying!!!

    Always nice to hear from you:D
