I continue to adore this series. I have to admit to not really liking Butch too much in the first book, but he grew on me and I was glad to have his story. The ups and downs in this book were many. The Suspense as to how it would all work out just kept me reading (way past my bedtime lol) and I love how J.R. Ward just drew us into the whole world of the Brotherhood again. I am so happy how it all worked out for Butch and I was glad to get answers to where he came from even if the answers weren't given to him. I am concerned about V, and I am anxious for his story! So glad that friends talked me into reading this series! ( )

Oh, This was fantastic, I was not really looking forward to reading about Butch. Not my favorite in past books, but boy did she pull out his charater ! Oh V !!!!! He is down right hot in this, true ? Love the tie to him and Butch, light and dark in a new way. Can't wait to read V's story. ( )

This is the fourth novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This book focuses on Butch O'Neal, a human taken in by the Brotherhood (in the first book), mainly because he knew too much. Even though he's tough, as a human he is unable to fight alongside the brothers in their everlasting war against the lesser society, an evil society trying to rid the world of the vampire race. It doesn't stop him from trying though. This leads to his capture, torture, and release with a parting gift that may or may not put the Brotherhood in danger. While this is going on, we see how Butch works out his love/craving/lust for Marissa, an aristocratic female vampire. There is also the issue that he seems to be exuding bonding tendencies, which is a vampiric trait. They love each other but go back and forth as they seem to have communication issues.

I think the romance and the fighting aspects are pretty well matched, I didn't feel like one overshadowed the other in the novel. And as always, we learn more about the characters that haven't been featured yet. Overall I enjoyed it. ( )

I like Butch but his book isn't my favorite. I don't really like him or Marissa but they are surrounded by the others I love so...I re-read it. Ill be back for more review once I finish my reread leading up to Lover at Last. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451412354, Mass Market Paperback)

Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard living, ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world to engage in the turf war with the lessers. He's got nothing to lose. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. If he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers... When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead but found by a miracle, the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back, though even her love may not be enough to save him...
