|Vishous, a smart IT geek and scary vampire warrior is a
member of the Brotherhood. He has the gift of prophecy and a glowing hand that can torch
dead lesser so they disappear from existence. The son of the Bloodletter, V grew up in
harsh warrior training camps where he endured extreme cruelty. He now enjoys BDSM, where
he is the one being punished. He also has feelings for Butch, his formerly human roommate
who is now mated (Book 4). After a fight with Lessers, V ends up in a human hospital,
where he falls instantly and unexpectedly in love with a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb.
Needing medical care but unwilling to be exposed as a vampire, he kidnaps Jane and brings
her to the Brotherhood compound to care for him.
Jane is a brilliant surgeon, dedicated
to helping people live. She grew up in a very repressed household where emotion was
frowned on. She now loves expressing herself and being the best in her field. After
meeting V, shes impressed by how hot he is, and he loves her brain.
V is destined to become the Primale, a warrior with multiple vampire wives who's meant
to ensure the survival of the species. After meeting Jane he doesnt want the role so
Phury steps in, as hes in love with someone unattainable, his brothers mate
Bella. The Scribe Virgin, who turns out to be Vs mother, agrees we get to see a lot
of Phury, his potential primary mate, and a lot of background is set up for the next book.
A lesser shoots Jane and she dies in Vs arms. He tries to resurrect her but is
stopped by the Scribe Virgin. She is horrified by Vs grief and trades her only joy
in life (her birds) so Jane can come back. Jane is now a ghost and V is the only one who
can touch her to everyone else she is translucent. V then gives his mother a bird
to thank her for what she did.
I never got why Jane was fine with being kidnapped by a group of vampires. If I was
kidnapped by vampires, I would be freaking out, not joking and flirting with my captor, no
matter how hot he was. And V has just kidnapped her, he is her patient, he is a vampire,
she is supposed to be very professional, yet she gives him a HJ without even knowing his
whole first name? The whole relationship between them was not believable at all, it was
Secondary characters do play a bigger role, there's a lot of detail about John Matthew
and his friends, who finally go through transition and Zsadist continues to develop. The
ending left me feeling unsatisfied but I couldnt wait for Phury's book. We meet his
possible mate and what we find out about her and the culture she arrives from is not to be
missed. Lover Unbound is a must for Brotherhood fans but not the book to start the series
with. Definitely R 18.
