Rhage and Mary return in a new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a series “so popular, I don’t think there’s a reader today who hasn’t at least heard of [it]” (USA Today).

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…

For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…

And that terrifies him—as well as distancing him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world…and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from…

Quotes & Awards

  • “Intimate, evocative…the last quarter or so of The Beast had me breathing fast, furiously flipping pages. Emotional surprises and plot twists signal big things to come as this consistently compelling and exciting series evolves. This immersive, introspective yet rousing next installment will leave you clamoring for more.”

    USA Today

  • The Beast is a joy of a novel…Ward is a master of her craft.”

    New York Journal of Books

  • “Narrator Jim Frangione conveys the pain that threatens their marriage, juxtaposed against the constant war that threatens all vampire society…Frangione’s commanding narration shows listeners the ‘all-in’ nature of the brothers’ loyalty to each other and respect for their females…Frangione’s style matches Ward’s unapologetic brand of male who can fight evil, express deep love, and cry at sappy movies. He’s especially good at switching gears and softening his voice into more fluid patterns during moments of strong emotion.”
