Author: J.R. Ward
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7
Release Date: April 28, 2009
Caldwell, New York, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It's also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and owner of a notorious night club that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he's approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King and leader of the Brotherhood.
Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood-even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him-and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.
Holy Moly Hell on earth! You know, I 100% expected to like this book somewhat. I feel like one of those weird readers who like other readers non-favorite books and dislike the favorite books among many. I was really just highly disappointed with this book. It may have just been me, it most likely was too, but this book felt unreadable to me.
I could not for the life of me get what was going on half the time, really understood what was going on and I think one reason is this book was moving really slow. The only part of the storyline which I really understood anything would probably be the "John Matthew Possy!"
I have dropped Black Dagger Brotherhood books before, but I had always decided to re-read or try again and Victory! I end up liking it, but I definitely do not see that happening with this one. All I can say is, I guess you just can't like them all! But seriously now, John Matthew's book better impress me!
