Layla alone knows the truth that will save Xcor's life. But revealing his sacrifice and his hidden heritage will expose them both and destroy everything Layla holds dear -- even her role of mother to her precious young. Torn between love and loyalty, she must summon the courage to stand up against the only family she has for the only man she will ever love. Yet even if Xcor is somehow granted a reprieve, he and Layla would have to confront a graver challenge: bridging the chasm that divides their worlds without paving the way for a future of even greater war, desolation, and death.
As a dangerous old enemy returns to Caldwell, and the identity of a new deity is revealed, nothing is certain or safe in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, not even true love... or destinies that have long seemed set in stone.« less
OH MY GOD! This is the best one yet. I was in tears for more than 1/2 of the book and on the edge of my seat. Impossible to put down! Can't wait for more! Romance, sorrow, love, battles, heart break, surprises..........My heart can't take much more!!!
One of the best in the series. I couldn't put it down. The emotions Ms. Ward wrote into the characters were amazing. Plot was tightly written. Love the foreshadowing at the end. This series is still strong after 15 books!!!
