I have just read about 20% of this book and am thoroughly impressed with the plot, the characters and the whole feeling of it. After the last few books in the series I was not expecting much so this was a very pleasant surprise. I just wanted to let everyone know that you are in for a treat, JR Ward is back in top form. I will update this review when I'm finished with the book (it is quite long). (Update) I finished reading this book and am pleased to say it is as good as the first 20% was. The story of Mae and Sahvage was the anchor for a whole new subseries within the Brotherhood world. There will be demons, witches, warlocks, etc. Lassiter may get a love interest he didn't expect, the Thief will also get a lover and the Demon will lick her wounds and come back for more mayhem. I am anxiously awaiting what the next book in the series will bring as Ms Ward has given us a glimpse of a whole new universe of stories within the Brotherhood world.
