John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown to himself and to those around him. After he was taken in by the brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was--or his true identity. Indeed, the fallen Brother Darius has returned, but with a different face and a very different destiny. As a vicious personal vendetta takes John into the heart of the war, he will need to call upon both who he is now and who he once was in order to face off against evil incarnate.
Xhex, a sympath assassin, has long steeled herself against the attraction between herself and John Matthew. Having already lost one lover to madness, she will not allow the male of worth to fall prey to the darkness of her twisted life. When fate intervenes, however, the two discover that love, like destiny, is inevitable between soul mates.
***WOW! This is a great book! There is so much going on in this book, between the love affair with John and Xhex, to the emotional battle with Quinn and Blay, and the sneak peek into the other Brother Murhder. New characters are introduced and a lot of things are answered. This book reminded me of why i love this series so much that i want to go back and read the whole series over again. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!
