Summary:

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 distances 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...

    I am a huge fan of all the Blackdagger Brotherhood stories by J.R. Ward. I love the way she writes and I think Jim Frangione does a fantastic job with voicing all the character. I couldn't wait till some new stories came out.

    I enjoy the book, however I will say the readers male voice is odd to me. He makes it almost cheesy at times. Making it slightly hard to really get into the book. That being said the writing is both modern and old. A well balance.

    Great book. Starts slow like many of the other BDB books but once the story develops, it hooks you. Hard to stop reading/listening. Narrator is great giving each character a distinctive voice.
