SUMMARY
Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Black Dagger Brotherhood's bloodlines alive - 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 as the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, Phury must decide between duty and love.

MY REVIEW

I didn't have any particular interest in Phury up until the previous instalment, where I found a Phury-oh-my! really of my liking. He's different from the other Brothers, he has a special inner battle with himself because of what he has done or better what he hasn't done right. This completely from his point of view, of course, because he clearly did good and in more than one occasion, but it appears he can only see the worst part of his actions. I'm sure all this could bother someone but, as I see it, the whole struggle was something supposed to happen from the beginning and besides, you can't avoid to fall for the tormenting relationship with the sweet, pure Cormia. Gosh, the deep tenderness I felt for this character is indescribable and I couldn't help myself but think of The Little Mermaid. Read the book and I dare you not to make the lovely comparison and be touched by it.

I must admit I got quite distracted because of certain side stories... But I don't mean this in a bad way at all. How could I, when I'm referring especially to the amazing trio: Qhuinn, Blay and JM? At this point, Qhuinn is dangerously wonderful and, what do you know, I'm totally cheering for Qhuay! Cherry on top, John can't stop driving me insane with his handsomeness in everything he does, or thinks of doing, or he would love to do, or... Damn, if I'm this way now, guess when it's time to read his book (shivers all along). Although this should be enough to declare love, something unpredictable and someone new (perhaps even an old acquaintance?) appearing on the scene made the read even more precious.

Since I don't know how to stop this reading madness (now, why would I ever want that?), next instalment here I am! And, if you still haven't started this impressive series yet, I strongly suggest you to do so, like right now!

RATING: 4.5/5
