Rhage and Mary return in a new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a series 'so popular, I don't think there's a reader today who hasn't at least heard of [it]' (USA Today).Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on humanweakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself . . . For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect - or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can't understand - or control - the panic and insecurity that plague him, terrify him . . . and distance him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities. The answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world . . . and Mary's. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from . . .'These erotic paranormals are frighteningly addictive and have earned Ward an Anne Rice-style following, deservedly so' Publishers WeeklyVisit J.R.
