This past week I read BLOOD FURY by J.R. Ward. This is the 3rd book in her Black Dagger Legacy series. It's not really a spinoff of her Black Dagger Brotherhood series because you do get more stories about the BDB characters, but the main focus is on the "next generation" of fighters.
I love the BDB series. There are some books in the series that I read once and will never read again because they are so gut-wrenching. Others I go back to time and time again. Her characters are vivid, her storylines raw and real.
I can't wait for the release of The Thief (the next book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series), which releases in April.
A vampire aristocrat, Peyton is well aware of his duty to his bloodline: mate with an appropriate female of his class and carry on his family’s traditions. And he thought he’d found his perfect match—until she fell in love with someone else. Yet when his split-second decision in a battle with the enemy endangers the life of another trainee, Peyton has to face the idea that his future, and his heart, actually lie with another.
Novo, as a female in the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training program, feels like she has to prove herself to everybody—and she has no interest in being distracted by falling in love. But when Peyton proves to be so much more than a rich playboy, she is forced to confront the tragedy that has broken her soul and closed her off from love.
As the two grapple with Novo’s past and Peyton’s present, another couple must contend with a connection that is unparalleled—and potentially scandalous. Saxton, who has had his heart broken, discovers in himself a deep-seated attraction to Ruhn, a new member of the household. But will the other male explore the connection? Or will he close his mind and his heart to what could be true love . . . and cost Saxton everything?
