In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - vampire warriors, defenders of their race ...John Matthew has been through his vampire transition and taken to the life of the Brotherhood with a vengeance, but he still can't shake the nightmare of his past and is unsure of his future as a warrior hero. He's made a promise to honour the Brotherhood and their fight with the slayers at all costs, until the love of his life is kidnapped and he is forced to make a choice that could change his life and the Brotherhood's forever ...


As a relatively late comer to the series (I started with the last offering) I pretty much made my way through the previous 7 titles before starting on this (due to the insistence of a number of Black Dagger Brotherhood fans.) What I gleamed from those was that I really did have a whale of a time and came to understand the characters better, so much so that they felt almost like friends.

That’s ultimately the key to this authors writing and something that I’d advise everyone else to do before starting on this title as it allows the emotional context that’s within to get a deeper route within the readers imagination. And that’s exactly what is key to this offering. There’s unrequited love, a huge sense of loss and of course the old heartstrings are pulled time and again and blended together with kickass action that really does show that JR is a top notch author.
