Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male's loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested - and his dangerous mixed blood revealed.
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.
Listen to another Black Dagger Brotherhood chiller.

revenge and zsadist are my fav books in the series. This book does a good job of bringing the king back into the mix too. Great story line and i cant wait to see what happens with john matthews and xhex
Love the series but disappointed with this narrator. Have heard this narrator in other books and he just really is disappointing does not do the characters justice.
Read the book instead. :( I am sure it will be much better.
I loved this story and the narrator, as usual, was great. Rhevenge always fascinated me as a character and his story did not disappoint. As usual with Ward's BDB books, the stories of the other characters continue also. Her writing is wonderful, though occasionally I wonder if there really are people who talk like the guys sometimes do. Her books are also a great bargain. I can listen to them over and over. No dull spots!
I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.
I really enjoy the depth of this series. Sometimes it's a little bit of a challenge but that just adds to the depth of the novel. I have read reviews where readers are not thrilled about how a characters life turns out. That is the beauty of this series, they are not predictable.
This was a really good book in the series. The reader is also very good, however, the editing of this book was very bad. Some sentences jerk together and the narrator's tone would change so drastically that it was down right annoying!! If not for that, I would have given the book 5 stars.
Thank you J.R. Ward for the Brotherhood series, I can't wait for the next book. I've been telling ladies at work to check them out, they've read S.M. books I know they'll love the Brotherhood. I'll keep an eye out for the Fallen Angel series starting next month. Thank you again Ms. Ward.
I loved this book, the rythm and content. What I didn't like so much is the narrator. His voice lacked nuances and expression, his tone was formal and pompous. In the formal parts of the book he shone, but in the humorous sections, there was a lack of irreverence needed to make the humor function,
You can hear when the recording stops and restarts because the quality of the voice is different And most annoying is that pauses between passages and sentences are demolished by poor editing. It is like the narrator is talking over himself. The narrator is not to blame. He does a fine job. It is definitely the person mixing or editing the thing.
Story is OK. I can break it down for you. Wrong guy and the perfect girl get together after a very brief and uncomplicated courtship. If you were hoping this was a romance book you would be mistaken. The romance obviously must bore the author because she spends very little time on them.
i have read all of j.r. wards books and was waiting for this one, it didn't disappoint, if you have read her other books you know that the story is not always about one main character, there are other side character that help round out the story. this is my first audio book though and the experience didn't disappoint either, it was well read and it was a very convienent way of reading a book! you could still imagine it in your head the same way. i very highly recommend the book and for a first time audio book reader i highly recommend the new way to read a book.
First of all this is not a stand alone book. But that is okay, as long as you know this is not where you start. If you think of this book as a political fantasy, urban fantasy - with a LOT of sex, it's fine. The reason I mention that it is somewhere between a political and urban fantasy is because it is much more involved and complex than a romance/erotica book. Which with all of the sex, erotica, you might mistake it for.
This is a great addition to the series and a good book, but it does not stand alone.
The audio editing is choppy in several places. It takes you out of the moment, but does not (as far as I know) edit out any important moments.
