Two brothers bound by more than blood fight to change a brutal destiny in the heart-wrenching new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward.

Trez “Latimer” doesn’t really exist. And not just because the identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world. Sold by his parents to the Queen of the S’Hsibe as a child, Trez escaped the Territory and has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years- all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude. He’s never had anyone he could totally rely on... except for his brother, iAm.

iAm’s sole goal has always been to keep his brother from self-destructing- and he knows he’s failed. It’s not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez’s life that the male begins to turn things around... but by then it’s too late. The pledge to mate the Queen’s daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating.

Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others- or forever leave behind the female he’s in love with. But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything. Staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice...



This was supposed to showcase two different love stories one has been building up for some time and the other one seemed pretty random. To be honest I haven't been happy with J.R. Wards work for the more recent books but to  read that the author herself is bored with her own work and characters and that she basically wrote this book just because made me very mad as a reader, I prefer to have no book at all or to wait longer to buy it than to get a mediocre book.

We got to glimpse several storylines like Quinn and his brother and others that I really don't care very much about, there were just too many and new character introductions and pointless character interaction *cough Layla cough* Xcor couhg*

Basically I think the author should just let this world rest and find something new to write about something else entirely.
