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...
Now you just know Ms Ward enjoys setting up her dominoes and seeing just how far they will fall. The Beast is no exception as we get characters and chapters that had me on the proverbial edge of her seat!
The Scribe Virgin has issues and I've a sneaky feeling where that storyline is going, so I hope Netflix is on tap! Assail needs a happy ending, please, pretty please! He is a character on the periphery of the BDB with his questionable lifestyle but boy does he step up here. Then there's all the drama surrounding the pregnant Layla and the three males in her life. Plus, the Lesser War just got real with the Omega now at a crossroads. So much is happening in this book and we even have new characters introduced, both human and vampire.
My final thoughts are many readers were unhappy with the previous book, The Shadows, as it didn't have a particularly happy ending but life actually isn't perfect. This book will perhaps make you cry a little but you will end up smiling.
I love this series and I adore that the characters feel so real and besides, even on a bad day Ms Ward still wipes the floor with her amazing world building. If paranormal romance is a genre you like, then don't miss al the books in The Black Dagger Brotherhood!
