Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s bloodline alive – he is to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished.
As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself – she sees the emotionally scarred male behind all his noble responsibility. But as the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, Phury must decide between duty and love.
ThoughtsPhury is falling apart. Being in love with his twin brothers, a gorgeous woman, and 40 others—which really means that he’s the primale, if only he would just man up and do it.
Problem, he’s an addict and before he can take on a new life he has to dump the old one. Which only really happens when they lose everything they have. Which is what this book is all about.
I wasn’t all that much a fan of this book. It wasn’t because of the fact that I didn’t like the parts in it. I didn’t mind them, separately. I found that this book is in so many different directions that it was hard to keep up, especially when she would be in one place, a climax waiting to happen and then she would jump to someone else’s life, which would be in such a different direction that you would take your mind off that steamy scene you just left so when you finally get back to it, you spend the first couple of paragraphs trying to back think while your reading on.
It wasn’t bad though, I liked the whole falling apart of Phury and his return to the real world. I even liked Cormia though she was a little too soft for me. She’s confused and hurt more time throughout the book than anything else and that was... yeah, I don’t like that type of female character not when she’s the main one.
