In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other—six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. And now, a dutiful twin must choose between two lives...

Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood's bloodlines alive. As Primale of the Chosen, he is to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished.

As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself- she sees the emotionally scarred male behind all his noble responsibility. But while the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, and tragedy looms over the Brotherhood's mansion, Phury must decide between duty and love.

sexy & fast paced

Ward returns to the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood with another sexy, fast paced novel that I couldn’t put down, regardless of the length of the story. Emotions run high as Ward’s flair for the dramatic takes readers deep into the intertwining lives of her fantastic characters. At the same time, she makes her larger than life story completely believable. The well written narrative combines with enchanting dialogue to create an unbeatable whole. I really enjoyed the dialects and slang that Ward writes with, both in the narrative and the dialogue. It really brought the story to life for me. The peek at the diverging histories of the vampires and the lesser was even more pronounced here. The tidbits of history that Ward provides puts a great many things into a deeper context and further develops the world of the series as a whole. The Scribe Virgin and her Chosen become a focal point, giving you a great deal of insight into how the spiritual aspect of this world works. I love how the history and culture of the BDB is continually developing. It’s neither fluid nor static. I’ll admit, I was definitely intrigued by Phury throughout the earlier parts of the series, but I absolutely loved him here. The complexity of character rivals that of any character in a work of fiction. His sense of self-worth is focal to who he is and plays a key role in his interactions with everyone around him. Cormia’s sense of duty and growing unhappiness provided me with a good sense of who she was inside and what she felt she should be doing. Together these two proved to be a very memorable and endlessly entertaining (and emotionally engaging) couple who definitely served this story well. Ward has created a world and band of characters that becomes more intricate and in depth with each passing novel. I find myself caught up in the individuals stories, unable to put the novel down, while also dying to know what happens next.
