This story is about Butch and Marissa.
Although there is a tremendous amount of character progression in this book, the story behind Butch and Marissa is unremarkable.
He wants her. She wants him. He doesn’t know she wants him. She doesn’t know he wants her. I’d like to say, “end of story,” but there are other aspects in this book that make reading it worthwhile.
John’s character really blossoms in this novel. He is knee-deep and falling faster onto a self-destructive path. Mourning the loss of the only parents he ever knew, Torh and Wellsie, he alienates everyone and finds himself angry and confrontational. One of the many outlets is Lash. That bastard is just a plain old asshole 🙂
As I said, the relationship part of this story is eh whatever, but Butch’s character progression deepens into something totally rockin’ awesome! He becomes this .. well shit. I can’t tell you what happens! But it, along with the other soap opera worthy moments, makes this book a must read. I do believe there will be a discussion post for this book. I have to get it out of my system somehow.
Vishous and Butch’s relationship is very weird. You’re really not quite sure what is going on, or how their characters “feel” about each other. Tip toeing over a thin line of “hmm” .. What happens between them is astonishing. Their two characters become entangled in a prophetic fate that changes everything concerning the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Everything they know, how they fight, how and who they kill .. everything changes in this book.
This book is a MUST read for anyone reading this series. As stated, although the relationship aspect of this book is seriously disappointing, everything else is extremely important to the rest of this series. Many questions are answered. Many secrets revealed.
I recommend this book to adults only. Children and immature adults should not be allowed to read this series. Extremely delicious and severe violence. Moderate sexual content (Not nearly enough if you ask me~!)
