What can I say...J.R. Ward did it again!!!! This is my favorite series of all time. I tried so hard to savor this book and make it last, but that didn't happen. I read it in two days, and it was amazing. We find out so much more about "V" and his past, which really brings the present into prospective. As always we learn more about the other Brothers, their mates, and some surprises are thrown in that really blows the mind. I am now anxiously awaiting the next in the series, to see what happens that is left unfinished here. If you know this series you know what to expect as far as Vishous and his sexual preferences, so if you are squeamish about that, then you may want to skip those parts. A GREAT book by A SUPER TALENTED author.

This is not the easiest book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series to read. It has some BDSM elements to it (V's sexuality) that might make some people uncomfortable to read, along with the fact that two of the main characters finally have a conversation over a sexual attraction that was only an assumption before. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it and read this book straight through in a matter of hours. I wasn't turned off by the unconventional HEA but, was rather intrigued on how Ms. Ward would use and change it in upcoming books, and also how it might change the fate of some of the other characters. The secondary character development was exceptional and now I am on pins and needles awaiting the next book in the series.

The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. 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 a 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 does not include her...
