But fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he's found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back, though even her love may not be enough to save him.
Keep chilled: listen to more titles in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
I wasn't immediately hooked on this series. I liked it a lot, but I found it hard to get into the books.
I loved the last one so much that I realized there was a world developing and with each book the richness and intensity increased.
Nonetheless, I was not wild about butch, thinking him only a minor character, and disliking his OCD taste in fine clothes.
Boy was I in for a trip when I read this. Butch ROCKS, Miranda is so amazing, and I love her transition. Vicious has definitely shown his strange side, perhaps worst than Z's used to be.
As more of this world develops, I am smitten and addicted.
I admit I love Revenge too. Can't wait for his story.
Oh and this does not lack in sexy scenes. The tender scene in hospital is hot! That's all I'll say. :)
I have always loved Butch and wanted him to have his own story. There is a little too much about the Lesser’s in this book however I guess it makes sense in order to explain a lot of what is happening. Well structured and love the fact that Marissa grows a lot in this book. I also love that Butch is still internally human after his journey and remains completely oblivious to the Vampire culture when facing the Scribe Virgin, adorably funny. As always love his friendship with V.
This is the fifth or sixth time I have read or shall I say listened to this book. Each time I reread it I find something else new. I love this series, and I can honestly say I will reread them again and again for years to come.
The narrator is as always spot on. This book was just as good as the previous ones, I love this series so much so far! The depth to the characters and everyone around them is so good and the hop from person to person is perfectly balanced with keeping you enthralled. Not like some books or movies where it is just too much and you get lost or confused.
Butch O'Neal has been on the outside looking in all of his life. An abusive father, a distant mother, and hostile siblings never provided a loving home for him. Once he was old enough to escape he found the police academy and a home there until he met the BDB. After getting involved with them he now has a new purpose, calling and as it turns out a new family which he truly belongs to. Now enter Marissa beautiful elegant debutante raised by the old standards from the old country and the aristocracy. What do the two have in common more than you think and together nothing can stop them.
Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.
I really thought I would like butch and marissa's story but I got quickly fed up with the misinterpretations and self depreciation it got old fast. They deserved to lose out on each other after all that. I seriously quit rooting for them before half the book was done.
