From the start, Black Dagger Brotherhood fans have been breathlessly awaiting the new destiny of reincarnated John Matthew to be revealed. Mega-talented Ward doesn't do easy relationships, as is evidenced by several ongoing threads that continue to be explored. Past and present events shadow each other, making the passion, drama and treachery of this book all the more
riveting. Ward is in a class by herself!
Life has kicked John Matthew in the teeth on numerous occasions, but the abduction of half vampire/ half sympath Xhex has nearly destroyed him. John's bitter enemy Lash has Xhex imprisoned as his personal sex toy. Finding Xhex and taking revenge on Lash are all that drives a tormented John.
Xhex's own dark past has kept her from trusting or accepting love. Can John change her mind? Critical events from the distant past are explored in flashbacks, leading to stunning revelations. The Brotherhood cannot ignore the ongoing war with the evil Omega and his lessors, for their strength may be growing. (NAL, May, 528 pp., $25.95)
