Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings - some corporeal, some not so much - as she struggles to right the wrongs of society.

I usually do not write many reviews. But I love this series and go back to it like a friend I miss. I love the characters and plots. It is not as predictable as most series are. I usually know the end when I start a book. Or know where the writer is going to go.

I have seen reviews that it is not suited for children. With my understanding it is for young adults and therefore if you are open with your kids. It's fiction. But it touch some areas where your young adults probably already know of.

I will continue to listen and enjoy this series along with the alchemist ones. I love them and recommend them to any who enjoy a new twist on old standards.

I hope many enjoy them as I do.

With 12 hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally, since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon.

Suffering a horrific childhood as the son of a Bloodletter in his father's war camp, Vishous pledges death to members of the vampire-hunting Lessening Society. Vishous knows no love. He feels no emotion. He lives only to oppose the slayers. But after suffering a mortal wound, a human surgeon named Dr. Jane Whitcomb tends to him. Her ministrations, however, extend beyond his physical injury - and before long her tender hand has awakened feelings of pleasure that Vishous never dreamed existed.

Keeps getting better with each new installment. More of the past comes to play with the future in understanding the characters lives. And how they mesh with the other brothers.

Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world-to engage in the turf war with the lessers. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. And if he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers.

Love the series. I was a little hesitant at the start. But I think I was expected the same old vampire love story. I do however enjoy them. But this is a nice change of plot.
