Vishous, son of the Bloodletter, is a cunning, stone-hearted vampire warrior devoted to killing the wicked, undead vampire slayers known as the Lessers; after an ill-fated visit to a hospital, Vishous falls instantly and unexpectedly in love with a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb. Soon, Vishous has brought the unwitting human back to the Brotherhood lair, where she returns his feelings, opening up a potentially cataclysmic conflict—Vishous is, against his will, destined to become the Primale, a warrior with multiple vampire wives who's meant to ensure the survival of the species.
Ok awesome! I really enjoyed this book. I never really cared for V until Butchs book (Lover Revealed) and in this book V really shines through as a caring and compassionate male! :o)
Alright so V gets shot and brought to a human hospital where he meets Jane...does anyone hear the word Mine coming??? lol Well so when the Brother break him out they take Jane with them and Jane and V end up falling in love.
There are however a few things that stand in the way of their love. First off V has to get over Butch: I really enjoyed V's love for Butch. I was very skeptical about them b/c I simply love my Brothers straight and I think Marissa and Butch are a good match...BUT I have to say the feeling that V had just warmed your heart. I think in the end when Butch had the talk with V and said that it want so much love but him feeling something for someone for the first time, he had it so right. Another thing in their way was the fact that obviously Jane has a life outside in the real world. Jane is a surgeon at St. Francis Hospital and has devoted her life work to her deceased sister Hannah (which btw her and her sisters story-Janes background- was great, very intriguing). It would take a LOT for Jane to want to give up her work for a VAMPIRE who risks his life every day. And the last big obstacle is the fact that V's mom...THE SCRIBE VIRGIN (ya...omg his background was super sad) has chosen him to be the Primale to the Chosen on the other side. Basically he is to mate with the Chosen in hopes to impregnate them so their species can carry on. This fate is unavoidable in both V and Janes eyes and when V tells Jane bye for the last time your left wondering if they will ever see eachother again. Esp since he had to wipe all of her memory of him...it was super sad! :*(
A turning point in the story is when Phury decides that he will take V's place as Primale so V can go claim Jane. (In comes Cormia...which is Phurys mate in the next book) When thats done Jane ends up being shot and killed. V turns crazy and ends up bringing her to their secret tomb or whatever in hope of reviving her as...a lesser I suppose. Well it doesnt end that way and she stays dead until his mom ends up bringing a ghost Jane back to him. And they live happily ever after! lol
Ok this is where I have to give my one complaint...I didnt like how they brought Jane back. I understand that Ward had to think of some way to make her immortal BUT I just didnt like the ghost idea. I really felt for V and Janes love and it broke my heart when she died...and believe me I wanted her back BUT I felt it just wasnt done in a creative way.
Two more things...John Mathew...ok dont make fun of me and I know that Darius is his fatehr but I cant help but think that HE is Darius and doesnt know it...idk...a stretch?!?! Also we find out V has a twin sister named Payne that "sleeping" b/c the Scribe Virgin put her that way...idk?!? OH and Phury had sex FINALLY (btu you dotn read too much about it) in a bathroom stall at the club and he didnt finish...UGH!
"I dont want you to go," she whispered, tears in the achy pitch of her voice.
He put his bare hand to her cheek and felt the softness and warmth of her face. He knew when he pulled out of here, he was leaving his heart with her. He pulled her into his arms and rested his chin on the top of her head. Holly hell, he was never going to smell chocolate and not think of her, not pine for her. Just as he closed his eyes a tingle ran up his spine, trembling along the back of his neck and shooting to the anchor of his jaw. He pulled back and pressed his lips to hers. "I love you. And I'm going to keep loving you even after you don't know I exist."
Her lashes flickered, catching her tears until there were too many to hold. "V...I..."
He waited for a heartbeat. When she didn't finish, he took her chin in his palm and looked into her eyes.
"Oh, God, you're going to do it," she said. "You're going to-"
*sigh...ok so its a good addition to the BDB series and you shouldn't miss out on it! :o) Happy reading!
I give this book a total of...
