After EVERYTHING Phury sacrificed for his brothers, only to have them completely turn their backs on him, kicking him out of the brotherhood in his time of need, just sickened me. I lost any respect I had for the brotherhood after this book. Even worse, their actions made all their talk of loyalty and how rare brotherhood members are in previous novels completely irrelevant. It was like reading about entirely different characters than the ones I came to know and love in previous books. It just made no sense and to be honest, I felt a bit betrayed. I truly feel the author could've done better.
Then there's the romance aspect. There was really no depth to it. Why did he fall in love with her? I don't mean that as an insult to Cormia, it's that they didn't have a lot of interaction with one another. Not enough for him to suddenly realize she was his. It went from Phury's unrequited love for Bella, well known in previous novels, to suddenly loving Cormia? After just a few interactions? Yeah, I don't think so.
The first time I read this, I completely stopped reading the series. It just seemed pointless since everything I loved about the brotherhood changed after reading what they did to Phury.
Perhaps I'm being a bit dramatic with this rant but it goes to show how good the previous novels were to me, and how invested in the Black Dagger world I was. I haven't decided yet whether to continue reading the series.
Now that Phury has agreed to be the Primale, I was hoping he would step up, but he starts talking more and more to this voice in his head that he calls The Wizard. The Wizaard likes to remind him of all of his failures and why he shouldn’t do anything but sit around and get high, because he is no good for anything or anyone. This is a recurring theme throughout the book.
Though he does fall in love with the Chosen First Mate Cormia, and she him. There are obstacles in the way of them being together. Especially the fact that he is supposed to be with 39 of her sisters.
John's storyline is also forwarded in this book. Huge changes occur for John and his two friends and they are now in the war with the Lessers, not just trainees. Lash finds out who he really is and becomes more evil than ever. Also a suprising friend brings Tohr back and John has a reunion with his one time father.
I really liked the book, I just thought Phury’s depressing storyline dragged on too long and I wanted happy times for him to finally come on. I mean him and Z have both suffered enough already.

Personally I enjoyed Lover Enshrined, I liked it very much – yes, it’s not as fast moving as the others but it is still a very good story that brings in other characters within the series, I now wish I had read this when I should have done, that is after book 5, as it tells us how Lash came to be a lesser, the full story as well as other details that were missed by skipping this initially.
In short a good story – not as fast paced as the other but still worth reading.
Phury is Zsadist’s twin and if I thought Zsadist had it bad, well so does Phury. The problem with Phury he’s an addicted. His life down spiral’s out of control and he really starts to lose apart of himself since becoming the Primale. It isn’t until the Chosen Cormia is picked to become his first mate that things start to get worse. Phury wants more for her than a life she never wanted for herself, so he continues to push her away.
I loved Cormia and Phury’s story. There was real angst and emotions flying around and the tension between them was hot. They made a great couple that could reflect each other’s personalities and that’s what I wanted for Phury. Even though he feels he’s at his end, it’s really only his beginning. Phury and Zsadist’s connection is amazing too, even though these brothers can’t open up as much as they’d like too, we really see them try and It’s amazing to read.
There were also a lot of other things going on in this book too; John for one is a great part of these stories as I've said before. I love seeing him with Blay and Qhiunn and it make me even more excited for his own story. And then of course we have the Lessers and then the return of another brother who has been missing for quite some time. It’s safe to say, this series is only getting more exciting with each book
How Ms Ward details Cormia's transition into a confusing new world "falling bath" aka shower was priceless!
Phury was written fabously! His addiction and the Wizard captured his state of mind. Through out it all he still has the grace of a male of worth, battling against his addiction and the "voice of the wizard" The addict /junkie was written perfectly, the lying, sneaking about, the voice, the need always for more of the hit.
Phury's book is jam packed with action, stories building and developing fantastically. Phury really held his own with this and getting a real good look at him was a thrilling read.
Change is coming in Caldwell.
