"Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself... For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect--or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can't understand--or control--the panic and insecurity that plague him... And that terrifies him--as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities--and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world...and Mary's. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from..."--Provided by publisher.

This was the best book from this series that I have read in a long time. Lots of intense conflict between characters and deep emotions. I was totally hooked into the story.

I just finished reading this book. It was so interesting that I found it hard to put down.

For the most part I enjoyed book 15. Wow, have I actually read 15 books in a series? Yes, weird. I loved the story of Xcor and Layla. I was thrilled with Tohr finding out about his brother. And I LOVE Lassiter. Everything was going great for me (despite some spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, and two instances where the action got terribly wrong-- did someone forget to edit the first quarter of this book? For reals?!) except the ending with Vishous. Oh my goodness. First we have to make him bored with Jane? And then J.R. Ward has to lay down hints that Vishous did something to the human (but secretly vampire though she don't know it) journalist that is trying to uncover the existence of vampires-- and wouldn't Vishous figure out she was a vampire too? All I can say is that the ending went a little off the rails for me. So in the meantime, I guess I will read the legacy ones.

Another very good book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. The relationship between Xcor and Layla is revealed and tempers are flying. Quinn wants Layla to have no rights to their children and wants her kicked out of the mansion. There is also some kind of army being made that no one is aware of. But I am sure we will find out more in the next book in this series. I don't want to give anything away, but if you have been following this series, then you have to read this book. You will enjoy it.
