Another BDB masterpiece.
Can you call these books masterpieces? I don’t know. That feels like awfully high praise.
There were so many welcome voices in this book. Though I did question John Matthew and Xhex… their problems got top billing, almost.
And I still don’t really know what’s up with Assail. But he may be the key to keeping Wrath on the throne? Don’t know about that, either.
We barely got a glimpse of most of the brothers. Rhage and Mary, Zsadist – no mention of Bella, only a hand print from Nalla. Jane and Manny held down the fort in the medical center. A little of Marissa, but Butch seemed to be relegated to taxi service. Didn’t see hide nor hair of the Scribe Virgin. Phury was around – Cormia only mentioned. Anyhoo… What is this, BDB roll call?
I do wonder what’s next for the Band of Bastardos. At first they seemed okay… honorable, even. Then they do some major damage, then you think you may like them again… Then at the end, they’re still plotting the Brotherhood’s demise. So I can’t decide if I should like them or not.
As of right now: NOT.
Layla and Qhuinn. *nods* I approve. Though, I’d just bet Xcor will be causing shit for her in the future.
Tohrment. Dood. A few times in this book, even I wanted to kick his sorry ass.
Still questioning whether or not he deserved that ending. What? It’s true. He was pretty awesome in this book, but, damn. A few times he needed to be hog-tied and duct taped.
Autumn made an interesting heroine – the second love for a male. Gracious and lovely. Being a veteran reader of The Warden’s work, I expected the way she came back. So, no surprise there.
All in all… an exciting read. The characters in this series will keep you coming back for more, again and again.
