Goodreads Description:

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams

So I decided to start this vampire series and wow, just wow. I could not put this book down. It is such a great book. I loved the main characters Wrath and Beth (so hot). You are introduced to all the Brotherhood and other characters and learn their story, but Beth and Wrath you can not help but love. I would consider this a mature read, there are scenes in the book that are pretty erotic.

Just a quick summary of the book the Black Dagger Brotherhood, is a group of warrior brothers who fight the "Lessers" who are trying to destroy the vampire population. At the opening Darius asks Wrath to watch over and protect Beth, who is half-breed but is kind of reluctant. Darius ends up dying and Wrath decides then to help out Beth and also get back at the death of Darius.  Later on we learn that Wrath has been watching her and finally makes his appearance and tells her about her father and the transition that will soon happen. You learn a lot about their relationship and about the "Lessers" trying to start war on each other.

I already ordered the second book on my kindle and cannot wait to read it. I love the way the writer writes, there are twists and turns in the book that you will not want to stop turning the page.


  1. When you say erotic is it like serious in detail stuff? I didn't know they wrote books like that
