79f9cd70-1f19-4e8b-9478-6f2092908614From #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward comes an unforgettable story of passion and vengeance in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.

When Ahmare’s brother is abducted, there is nothing she won’t do to get him back safely. She is unprepared, however, for the lengths she will have to go to save his life. Paired with a dangerous but enticing prisoner, she embarks on an odyssey into another world.

Duran, betrayed by his father, imprisoned in a dungeon for decades, has survived only because of his thirst for vengeance. He has been biding his time to escape and is shocked to find an unlikely and temporary freedom in the form of a determined young female.

Battling against deadly forces and facing unforeseen peril, the pair are in a race to save Ahmare’s brother. As time runs out, and the unthinkable looms, even true love may not be enough to carry them through.


Donna 5 Stars

Wow. I’m not sure where to start on this review. It was a story about two desperate souls brought together in unsavory circumstances, and how their separate goals- and futures – converged in a single quest. Ahmare was strong and driven, yet she never appeared hard-edged and brittle. I was able to become invested in them both early in the book. Duran was full of hate and vengeance, yet he bore a vulnerability that touched my heart deeply. (I’m still smiling that he got the HEA he deserves.) No, it doesn’t have the banter and camaraderie of the Brotherhood, but it sure has the heart. It’s a dark book of danger and pain woven beautifully with a touching romance. I hated to see it end.

  1. Great review! I’ve been meaning to check out J.R Ward’s books for literal years but I’ve always been intimidated by just how many books there are in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I think this year might be the year I brave it!
