Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world-to engage in the turf war with the lessers. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. And if he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers.

But fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he's found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back, though even her love may not be enough to save him.

Review:

"Newbies to Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood may struggle to fill in the backstory, but these erotic paranormals are well worth it, and frighteningly addictive. The six 'brothers' are vampires: enormous, tattooed, tormented warriors who protect other vampires from destruction by the 'lessers,' desouled humans in the evil Omega's Lessening Society. Hero and ex-cop Butch is the only human allowed into the Brotherhood's inner circle, but Butch is no mere human, a fact suspected by one of his vamp colleagues, and confirmed by the sinister plans of the Omega. The book is fully committed to its urban sensibility, the vampires' rarified language (a glossary is provided) and their revved-up sex drives, and it all works to great, page-turning effect (with the notable exception of a chick lit — like attention to designer brands). Though Butch's love interest, the virginal, aristocratic vampire Marissa, initially elicits more annoyance than empathy, she grows a spine as the book progresses and Butch's destiny comes to light. In just two years, the first three books in the series have earned Ward an Anne Rice — style following, deservedly so; this entry should prove no less popular."

Of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, this by far is my favorite so far. While all have been good reads, this one kept me interested from beginning to end. I am looking forward to the next three books though, so that may change!

Marissa's character completely redeemed herself in my eyes from the first we met her in Dark Lover. But finding out more of her story made her my favorite heroine of all the other stories.

Butch as the lead character was intriguing and wonderful. I loved him and his commitment not only to Marissa but to Vishous as well.

I love this series. They're extraordinarily exciting in many ways. I literally pick each one up and have it read in 24 hours or less.

I am a HUGE fan of this author. For any who have not read her books, I highly reccommend them. This is book four of her series and you will really apreciate knowing the backstory of all the characters.

Butch, a former cop, became involved in the Brotherhood in the first book. Since then, he has been on the outskirts...because he is human, he is unable to truly be a part of the Brotherhood, but he knows too much about them to be allowed to return to his former life. Captured by the Brotherhood's enemy and tortured, he is thrust in the middle of their war.

Butch has fallen in love with Marissa, the king's former "wife", however, he thinks she turned her back on him in order to find someone from the aristocracy who would be more appropriate for her. Marissa, who thought Butch never really loved her is now given the opportunity to be near him as she helps him recover from his capture and torture.

There is SO MUCH going on in this book. The book revolves around the war between the "lessers" and the Brotherhood. While Butch and Marissa are the central characters, the others play a very prominent role. If you have read the previous books, you have already fallen in love with them and know they jump off the page and stay in your heart. They each have a special gift, however, the author did not go in to as much detail this time about what they are. As always, you are left anxiously waiting for the next book in the series.
