#1 New York Times bestseller J.R. Ward shares the powerful star-crossed love story of reader favorite, and original member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Darius.
Darius, son of Marklon, isn’t looking for love the night destiny comes to claim him. He’s also not interested in crashing his new car. But when a human woman runs out into the road and he must swerve to avoid killing her...everything goes off course.
Disillusioned by his King’s lack of leadership and the losses in the war against the Lessening Society, Darius finds purpose in protecting a woman he cannot make his own. Love finds a way, however—until the truth of what he is comes out and she leaves him in horror.
Unbeknownst to them both, Anne is carrying his young, a female who is destined to be Queen—and after a tragic reunion, he vows to protect their daughter. Resigned to perpetual sadness, he is determined to serve the memory of his beloved no matter the cost...unless by some miracle, fate sees fit to once again bring them together.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
J.R. Ward’s dark and dramatic audio exclusive pulls us into the excitement of forbidden supernatural love. When vampire Darius narrowly avoids hitting a beautiful mortal woman named Anne with his car, an epic love instantly blooms between them, even though Anne doesn’t know her new man’s true nature. This enthralling listen serves as a prequel to Ward’s beloved Black Dagger Brotherhood saga, and it’s also a perfect place to start the series. We loved getting immersed in the lore of Darius’ world, not to mention the sweeping drama of his life. Narrator Jim Frangione leans into the couple’s steamy romance with his deliciously evocative performance. Dim the lights and press play on a seductive vampire tale.
