So remember how I said that love between a human and vampire could never last and the author went to extreme lengths last book about it? Well, it feels like the the author just yelled “YOLO” and did what she wanted anyway.
So this book is about Vishous the kinky brother who is a sadistic dom in his spare time. Vishous falls in love with the human surgeon who they kidnap to operate on him to save his life. Which sounds really cool, but Stockholm syndrome? That’s a thing Ms. Ward. Add in that he brings Jane to his dungeon and has her beat him up and it gets all kinds of “please stop writing about things you don’t know”.
Add in the twist ending where the Scribe Virgin comes out and messes stuff up just to keep the plot convenient for the author. Spoiler: Jane dies, but the Scribe Virgin brings her back as a ghost. Because ghosts and vampires being in love is so much more legit. Spoiler end.
At this point in the series, I think that Ward has given up on making a cohesive plot and instead writes whatever comes to mind and is making bank. I applaud her for being able to do that, but I would not recommend that all of you rush out and buy her books. Find your crazy aunt who has a romance novel collections, she probably has these. These books started getting popular at the same time as the Anita Blake books and the Sookie Stackhouse books, but these did not attempt to have a further plot beyond romance, like the other series did.
2 out of 5 stars. I might recommend this book, but only in that way that people recommend horrible movies.
