After centuries of ignoring his kingship,
Wrath has finally accepted the crown and is ruling the vampire society. The threat from
the Band of Bastards is still there though, and has glymera support, as they want a ruler
who embraces the old traditions of aristocracy. The war with the lessening society rages
on and they need new fighters.
Beth wants Wraths young and is unprepared for his response, or the
distance it puts between them.
Xcor is the leader of the Band of Bastards and one of the leaders in the
plot to take down the King. But hes fallen for the Chosen Layla, who is pregnant
with Qhuinns young. Layla has unexplainable feelings for Xcor and has to keep her
relationship with him secret.
Trez is trying to get away from his future, which is to be the mate and
sex slave of the next Queen of the Shadows. Hiding out with the BDB, he falls for the
Chosen Selena and his brother iAm will do anything to help him escape his fate.
Assail feels compelled to help Sola, the burglar who was paid to spy on
The plot is very involved, with multiple storylines and recurring
characters, and it would help if youd read the previous in the BDB series. The main
story was Wrath and Beth and it was refreshing to read their HEA wasnt all sunshine
and roses and see how they dealt with challenges.
I dont like Assail and he and Sola seem a bit pointless, Im
not sure why their story is being told. I swing between not liking Xcor and feeling sorry
for him, I think Laylas made a huge mistake though.
I like Trez and Selena and hope they get their HEA, their story is the
I loved when Wrath met his subjects! Hopefully well see more of
Paradise in later books. And there are Lassiter scenes!
A must read for BDB fans!
