Overview: 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.
My thoughts: I know this isn't young adult, but I love this series. i actually bought the first book man years ago and was going to try it. I read the first 2 chapters and decided it wasn't for me. But my younger sister swears by this series. she has the whole family reading these books now. So I decided to give it another try. So i stole my copy back from her.....LOL
Wrath is known as the relentless king amoung the brothers in this brotherhood. but really I didn't see himthat way at all. He seemed to only want what was best for eveyone and if that meant throwing his weight around, oh well.
One of the brotherhood gets killed, on purpose. Wrath finds this mans daughter and explains to her that she is half vampire and that she will go through the change. She has to believe him becuase she doesn't know her family.
After she figures out that Wrath isn't evil she falls in love with him. Oh and this good king and a disability...I won't tell you what that is.
My rating: 5 stars
