Ward is at the top of her game with this, the second in the Black Dagger Legacy series, and there wasn’t a single one of her many storylines that I wanted to skip over. So in this novel we have in play Axe, a tough but wounded guy, and one of the trainees in the Brotherhood’s training classes for new soldiers. We also have Rhage and Mary, adjusting to new life adorably with their adopted teen, Bitty. And finally we have Elise, and member of the aristocracy, who is struggling to get out of her father’s restrictive traditionalism by earning her PhD.
I enjoyed spending time with all these folks, and we still had fights and romance galore. Excellent installment in the series from Ward. For 18 and up.
Wow! The best one in this series for quite a while, though I have enjoyed them all. Atlanta mercenary Kate Daniels just wants to live her life: marry her boyfriend, get her PI agency going, fight the occasional monster. But she is the daughter of the greatest evil the planet has ever seen, and she will have to face him sooner rather than later. This novel just explodes across the pages, and it incorporates all the characters we’ve come to care about. A wonderful celebration of all that is great and good in the Kate Daniels novels: adventure, romance, negotiation, and assorted badassery. A fantastic read – 18 and up.
Book 13 of this series continues the second wind its author has had for the last couple books. In this one, things seem back to normal, but a new normal is in effect for the humans of Morganville. In this one, vampires are given free reign over humans – perhaps even to hunt them for their blood. Can Claire and friends save the town from civil war and avoid the firestorm caused by a human/vampire marriage? For 16 and up.
