The latest book of The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. Here's the blurb (taken from the author's website):
Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous son of the Bloodletter possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father's war camp, he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time- until a destiny he didn't choose takes him into a future that cannot include her.
I had high expectations for this book, and I wasn't disappointed. I found the book very different from the others of the series. It had the usual darkness of the story but it didn't have the usual fighting between the Brothers and lessers, the conflict was more of a personal fight within Vishous. It also gives us more information on how their society works. There are a few shocking scenes, wait, there were the good kind. It was definitely the steamiest of the bunch. Although I enjoyed the main plot, I was at times more interested in what was happening with John and his friends.
Looking forward to the next installment. I think it's to be released in March.
