Back Cover Blurb:
The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.
Ward creates some complex and interesting characters that I really wanted to get to know. The Brotherhood’s names had me from the get-go. They’re perfectly unique and fitting for each individual character. The diverse cast kept me on my toes while giving me a great deal to think about. The dialogue is priceless. It lets you get to know the characters just as well as any description could. Also, the college frat house vibe combined with the righteousness of the characters is unmistakeable.
This novel is simply sensational and leaves me wondering why I didn’t start reading this series sooner. It is a fantastic start to a series that I will most definitely be following.
