NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * A scorching forbidden love threatens to tear a rift through the Black Dagger Brotherhood in J. R. Ward's newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. Xcor, leader of the Band of Bastards, convicted of treason against the Blind King, is facing a brutal interrogation and torturous death at the hands of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Yet after a life marked by cruelty and evil deeds, he accepts his soldier's fate, his sole regret the loss of a sacred female who was never his: the Chosen Layla. Layla alone knows the truth that will save Xcor's life. But revealing his sacrifice and his hidden heritage will expose them both and destroy everything Layla holds dear--even her role of mother to her precious young. Torn between love and loyalty, she must summon the courage to stand up against the only family she has for the only man she will ever love. Yet even if Xcor is somehow granted a reprieve, he and Layla would have to confront a graver challenge: bridging the chasm that divides their worlds without paving the way for a future of even greater war, desolation, and death. As a dangerous old enemy returns to Caldwell, and the identity of a new deity is revealed, nothing is certain or safe in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, not even true love . . . or destinies that have long seemed set in stone. Praise for J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series "Utterly absorbing and deliciously erotic."--Angela Knight "To die for . . . I love this series!"--Suzanne Brockmann… (más)

This is the kind of book that makes you forget to eat, sleep or do anything other than curl up and read. Did you know that you can pee and read at the same time? All things are possible with a book like this.

I have been waiting for Layla and Xcor’s story since they first met each other. It really is a tragic story and with J.R. Ward, you never know if it will end happily or rip your heart out like what happened with Trez and Selena where Selena died or like Assail and Sola where she moved away.
In previous books, Layla met Xcor when one of his fighters took her to feed him her blood. Yes, they are vampires who get nourishment off the opposite sex. Layla believed the fighter was part of the Black Dagger Brotherhood because he was in their compound once and the brothers had her feed him. She was clueless at first. She immediately connected with Xcor despite his cleft palette or hare lip as they called it and when she found out that she had done wrong, she did confess it to the Brotherhood but she still felt a connection to him. Later, Xcor coerced her to see him but was always a gentleman with her and she became enamored with him. He broke it off between them though.

Layla is a Chosen which means she was born and raised in what the race of vampires calls Sanctuary which is a sort of heaven. She served the mother of the race and was trained to be an ehros, in the art of sex to please the Prime Male and reproduce along with many other Chosen, but the Prime Male chose to mate one female and freed all of the Chosen. Layla was left with no job and had an empty spot in her life so when her time of needing came, the fertile time of a female of their race where they either have to have sex or be heavily drugged to withstand the pain of the needing, she and one of the males of the Brotherhood agreed to have sex and have a child.

The entire time she was meeting Xcor in secret, she was pregnant and he accepted it.
Xcor had been captured by the Black Dagger Brotherhood but was badly injured when they took him down so they kept him alive by machines in order to interrogate him. He woke up and knew that he was going to be executed and knew that he would never give up his men so he would probably be tortured.

I really give a lot of details about the story without giving out spoilers but I can say, I was hating Quinn in this book. He acted like a straight-up hateful dickwad in this book. I was also a little worried about Vishous and his state of mind.

The series also may have a new enemy to deal with soon. I think that will be interesting although I hope it isn’t a repeat of when Lash was the enemy. We’ll see.

Gosh, I wish I could say more because there was a lot of exciting new developments and things that happened. I guess you will just have to read the book.

I have been waiting for Xcor and Layla's story and I enjoyed this addition to the series. Ward also advanced other character's stories in this book, as usual. While there was nothing surprising about the outcome of Xcor and Layla, there were a couple of twists twist I didn't see coming. They made the entire book better and gives me other stories to look forward to. ( )

The worst nonsense drama ever!

When I first heard of the release of a book dedicated to Xcor and Layla, I was already in a 'meh' mood. I don't stand Layla's whining and don't even like the couple and the chemistry.
I have also wondered if I should stop reading the series, but I decided to read it just to know what would have happened after I had heard of the release of The Thief. I am very curious to read about Sola and Assail, even if they look like respectively Xhex 2.0 and Rehv 2.0, so I didn't want to miss any relevant plot event.

But here we are: there is no important event. There is just nonsense drama and crappy stuff happening!
I am sorry not to like this series anymore. It used to be one of my favourite series and I loved the characters and everything, but it got less and less appealing over time with non sense drama between characters just to keep alive something that doesn't even sound realistic at all.

I hope that the next book will be better for me, otherwise I will seriously consider to stop there. ( )

i’ll probably have more to say tomorrow about all of this but what i know right now is that I AM STILL SO MAD AT QHUINN. I CANT BELIEVE LAYLA FORGAVE HIM IMMEDIATELY. he was SUCH a massive asshole this ENTIRE book. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET OVER THAT IN JUST ONE MINUTE. “shes so beautiful like our layla” BITCH I THINK TF NOT AFTER THE WAY YOU TREATED LYRIC AND LAYLA AND EVERYONE THIS ENTIRE TIME. fuck you very much.
