Publisher Description

“The hottest collection of studs in romance” (New York Times Bestselling Author Angela Knight) returns as J. R. Ward brings together two of the most beloved people in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world—at last....
Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has found an identity as a brutal fighter in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....
Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: it seems Qhuinn has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young. It’s hard for Blay to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. And Qhuinn needs to come to terms with some dark things before he can move forward…

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions, but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn learns the true meaning of courage, and two hearts meant to be together finally become one.

Met all expectation

J R Ward has proven that a true romance can be appreciated by us lovers no matter who the characters.Quinn & Blay are two of the character that we grow with so when they finally had their story I was curious how J R would go w/it and was awed at her couragous, sensual uptake on two young men finding themselves & love.
I’ve read this one twice, a couple of the more memorable moments a few time, will read it again some day. I think it might be the best one yet with so much meat on the bone you feel gloriously stuffed w/love & so satisfied you want to start all over again. Thank you J R. I can’t wait for the shadows!



Finally the story we have been waiting for! And it was GREAT!
