In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists 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 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 mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself—she sees the emotionally scarred male behind all his noble responsibility. But while the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, and tragedy looms over the Brotherhood’s mansion, Phury must decide between duty and love.

Listener Opinions

    " I see why this one is rated lower than others in the series, although book four remains my low point. I was expecting not to like cormia for the same reason I didn't like what's her name in book four (complete lack of personality or spine) but cormia had more spunk than I thought she would. I also thought the stuff with lash was really, really interesting and will be a whole new spin on things. And tohrment is back!!! Yay!!! But, being inside the head of an addict with low self esteem was tiring. Also, the whole coitus interruptus was amusing the first time or two, but by 2/3 through, its like "really? You're going to stop yourself AGAIN?" overall I still liked phury more than Butch, probably because I felt a little sorry for him, but I wasn't dying to find out what happens to him. but, I thought it was pretty sad how everyone just dropped him. That would have made more sense had he been messing up more in the book leading up to this one, but as it was, it felt pretty sudden. At least ward didn't give cormia a crap compromise like poor Jane got in the last book. anyway, I'd probably stick with around 3.25 stars. "

    " Pretty good story. Not the best of the series though. I did enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/2/2014

    " For me, this story in the series seemed to be missing something. It didn't hold my attention nearly as much as the others in this series. It was still good just a bit off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/27/2014

    " I did enjoy this but Phury was just too much of a martyr for my liking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina Pedrosa | 1/24/2014

    " Not the best one from the BDB series, but good nonetheless. The ending though was one of the best form the six books. And I love Cormia, I think she's great and my second favorite only behind Bella, because hers and Zsadist story IS the best of the BDB series and they all sort of mash up in this story. I liked it and I recommend it. "

    " Yea for Phury. I hope john gets what he wants, and he didn't! ok the story about Lash is stupid. This ended lame "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/19/2014

    " I found this book very hard to read and was the first of the Black Dagger books that I didn't love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty | 12/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Clements | 11/12/2013

    " Another great one! There was a lot going on in this book. I felt like Phury's relationship got lost in this book... however I liked all the action and different storylines. There's a lot going on in this series and I'm excited to read more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Cothran | 6/20/2013

    " Love Phury and Cormia! Congrats to Bella and Z! Praying for Xhex and JM!!! <3 it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexis Phillips | 3/23/2013

    " At the beginning I wasn't sure how this book would turn out it was a little slow starting but by the end I COULDN'T put it down!!! Wow!!! Great read!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy Pireel | 10/8/2012

    " Again the Brothers captivate and thrill the reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly Haverlah | 9/26/2012

    " This book had a bit slower pace and was really hard to stay involved with the story. I felt myself thinking "come on already... Just get on with it". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lirajean | 9/6/2012

    " Well, no one wants to listen to a lot of self-centered whining but the end makes it worthwile. A lot of wackiness in their world gets straightened out as Phury finds resolution. Of course a half dozen other storylines get opened in this book, too. Next book, please! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carri | 3/14/2012

    " it was ok. I really keep reading so that I can get to John's story, and because i love Zsadist. "

    " I had to take a break after this one... it was really intense... at least I thought so... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aylene | 5/15/2011

    " This book took me the longest to read.. I felt so angry at Phury that i just didn't want to continue , but as you know there's always good after the bad and you just have to get through those really hard chapters to get to the happy ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beckey | 5/15/2011

    " Another recommend series to read if you like paranormal vamp books. It's one of those series that hard to put down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 5/15/2011

    " I give it 5 stars only because of the Qhuay action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/14/2011

    " I loved Phury in the other books, but his struggle throughout this entire book is so depressing and sad to read. I kept thinking how much better Cormia deserved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 5/6/2011

    " The weakest of the 6 I've read, but still enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 5/5/2011

    " Not my favorite of the series, but still a good story! "
