You can read the Goodreads summary here.

When the father she never knew she had is killed in an attack, Beth finds a mysterious man sent to "protect" her.  Wrath.  She's wary at first and then extremely drawn to him.  She soon learns her father was a vampire and she's half vampire... and her change is rapidly approaching.  Meanwhile, the Brotherhood is trying to defend their race from the lessers.

I really enjoyed this novel!  Despite the fact that it wasn't heavy reading, it was still a nice break from the YA kick I've been on recently.  It was fast paced and definitely a page turner.  There weren't too many boring moments and lots of good steamy scenes, if you know what I mean.  The plot was pretty straight forward and there was just the right amount of angry vampire action scenes.

Four stars!  The only thing I didn't like was how Beth and Wrath's romance was immediate; they took no time to fall in love and there wasn't much development there, no explanation of why they are in love.

I have to thank my fellow NBC Nesties for recommending this series.  I really enjoyed the first book and I can't wait to get the second one in the mail to start that.  You can add my name to the list of people who recommend the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
