You get a couple of chapters from John point of view. And we left screaming hoping that he will find out who he really is.
I love this series. I am currently buying each paperback.
If your a new reader I suggest you start from the beginning. And you want something to stick your teeth into then this is the one.
The only reason I didn't give it a five star was because she could have went into more detail on butch is family. See more of their side of view. Of why he doesn't get on with them. I felt part of his history was missing.
I wanted to see him interact with his family. Turn and say to them that I got a new one now. Stuff like that.
But good read.
In this book we also live through the tortured emotions Vishous has for Butch - he loves him like a brother, like his best friend, possibly more?? Still waters run deep and there is so much more than meets the eye where Vishous is concerned - one thing is for certain, that he will do anything for his friend Butch and the two find themselves in the eye of the storm with the Scribe Virgin and the Omega both focused on Butch, who is the one who is set to fulfill the prophecy of the Dhestroyer. A compelling read from start to finish, this book is a real page turner.
I've read all the Brotherhood series and this, without a doubt, is the best one. Only by a very slim margin, because they're all good. I admit the language of the books takes a little getting used to, because of all the street talk, hip-hoppy, urbanness of the books - a woman trying to talk like a streetwise man - but once I got into the characters, I just had to have more. I've read all of them twice at least twice...
We met Butch, our lead character, in Dark Lover, the first of the series, when he first becomes involved with the Brothers and we see his relationship with the female vampire, Marissa, develop throughout. There's lots of miscommunication, things not said, things that should have been said - and all the usual suspects but, I felt for him when he felt Marissa was lost to him. I felt his pain, his frustration, his anger, his passion. Much credit to Ward for evoking these emotions in me. There's also the relationship he has with Vishous, a Brother and his best friend. It's odd but it's so not. You'll have to read it to know what I mean. And I loved the twist ending. I thought I knew what it was, but I was so wrong.
I have to say that the love scenes in this book, as in all the series, are some of the best I've EVER read. Probably THE best! From total tenderness to mad lust, it was amazing. Now THAT'S how to write a love scene! J R, you go, girl!
If you like a down to earthiness about your Vamp novels, then there's nothing left for me to say but to "buy, buy, buy!" Brilliant!
The book centres on Butch who has ended up in the strange position of being a disgraced cop living with the Brotherhood. I was a bit hesitant in getting into this book because, although I like Butch, I just didn't feel very strongly about him, partly because he's not one of the Brotherhood. I was more interested in poor Marissa, in some ways, and the raw deal she seems to have had as part of the vampire aristocracy.
In this story, Butch ends up being taken by the Lessers and having something terrible done to him by the Omega. Once rescued, the brothers, and especially Vishous try to discover what has been done to him now that he seems to have a strange attraction to the Lessers. Is he ultimately going to become one of them?
The story is fast-paced and there is a lot going on, which I liked. I grew to like Butch a lot more and his relationship with Vishous was enjoyable to read. In fact, I'd say it is the main attraction of the book. You get to find out much more about Vishous than we ever have before too. The least interesting part of the story to me was Butch's relationship with Marissa. Having liked her before, I found myself getting frustrated with her cool and proper aristocratic demeanour. Grow a backbone, I found myself thinking repeatedly. She does eventually, but it takes far too long and even then I didn't warm to her as much as I have to all the other shellans. Oh, and on a personal note... I hate the way Butch calls her baby all the time, so tacky!
There are some really good side-plots in this book which I enjoyed: John's reaction to his recent loss, an inside look at the training of the pre-transition vampires, Zsadist's relationship with John.
So, this really isn't as good a Zsadist's story in the previous book by a long shot, but it's still good and continues the story of the brothers well. I would recommend any fans of the series to read it.
Kindle: the Kindle edition of this book was a long time coming and unfortunately it isn't perfect. There are a fair few errors such as typos, incorrect words and spaces between words. It's not enough to ruin the experience of reading the book, but it's disappointing nonetheless.
