#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s thrilling new novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself—only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, MD, is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can—but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal | 2/19/2014

    " This book was a whole lotta long drawn out nothing. Not much action. Not much to the plot. Not much of anything. There were a few funnies, most of them courtesy of my favorite character Butch. I'm glad that V finally got his head on straight but I think that could have been done in his book rather than this one. I also felt like there were too many things left unresolved at the end. V and his female discussed getting mated officially but they didn't. The whole story line with Xcor and his band of bastards has been left open ended. The part about the detective and his now murdered murderer has been left unresolved. All in all it was a slow read and definitely my least favorite of the series. I have much higher hopes for the next one. "

    " I am a Vishous fan, so I am a bit partial. However, not many Lessers in this one, which was fine with me, guess they are building up someplace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/17/2014

    " I'm gonna start this review the same way I've started all of my reviews of J.R. Ward's previous books: I LOVED IT! Love love love. This book was great. Wonderful twist at the ending too. Way to keep things fresh! On to the next one :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keli | 1/10/2014

    " Payne- her story or lack of her story, mostly pertained to V and Jane. Would have liked more of Payne, V had his book -which in this book, would have answered a lot of questions the first time around. "

    " Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh. Screw it. I'm skipping the next one, these books aren't worth it anymore. I just want to read how she's screwed up Qhuinn and Blay's relationship in Lover at Last and put this entire series behind me. "
