“In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.
The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.”
Wrath can be described as dark and intimidating. He’s the last pure vampire so that technically makes him king but he hates his status. He has a temper and isn’t really a people person. Wrath’s eyesight isn’t the best but that still doesn’t stop him from being one of the best warriors in the brotherhood. I liked Wrath I thought he was interesting. You can see that his dark past has taken a dark toll on him and it’s clear that his past has turned him into the person he is today.
When you first meet Beth at the beginning of the book her life isn’t going as planned. She works with an old perverted boss, she doesn’t live in a place she likes, she has a few friends but they’re mostly busy dealing with their own family and she has no lover or family. Beth is a lot stronger then she appears to be. When she finds out that Wrath is a vampire she freaks out which is kind of expected. She scared about her transition and when she does transition she’s a little different from other vampires.
Butch is known as a hard ass throughout most of the book. He works as a homicide detective. He’s rough, tough and sometimes intense. As the book goes on you begin to see a softer side of Butch which I actually really liked. Butch was probably my favorite character. Which is kind of surprising when you start reading the book. I loved seeing the softer side of him. He didn’t seem like the aggressive cop who broke a boy’s nose in the questioning room.
Mr.X from the beginning disgusted me. He’s a power-hungry psychopath who is part of the lesser community because he enjoys killing. Mr. X played an excellent villain.
The plot changes for each character but later entwines between all the characters. The book is in the third person and switches point of views from Beth, Wrath, Butch, Mr. X, and Havers. Everyone seems to just be dealing with their own problems and ambitions. Beth and Wrath are dealing with their feelings for each other and Beth’s transformation. Butch is dealing with his job possibly on the line because of his aggression, Mr. X honestly just wants to end the vampire race and kill people and then there’s Havers.
The romance between Beth and Wrath is fast but has a lot of chemistry. They fight a lot because their personalities are both different. Even though there is chemistry there still moving REALLY fast like when they first met they started making out and Beth didn’t even know his name.
Overall, I rate this book a 4 out of 5. I liked all the character I thought they were both unique and fun to read about. I had mixed emotion about the book being in the third person and talking about each of the characters. I liked seeing how they all connected in some way but there were other times where I didn’t care about what happened in the chapter. The romance between Beth and Wrath was fast paced and steamy. WARNING: lots of make out scenes. This book was overall really entertaining and is the official winner of vampire week! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
