While this ostensibly was Assail and Sola's story, there was still a whole story line dedicated to V and Jane to make the die hard fans of the original Brothers happy. Each one was so well written that I was extremely impressed at the way everything was woven together. Even the ancillary character's stories we well-told and fit into the story in such a way as to seem like a perfect fit.
This book harkens back to the first few BDB stories and reminds me again why I love this series so much! I highly recommend this book!
I love diving back into this universe. No matter who the story focuses on, I just love the BDB world. I guess it probably depends on whether you’re a Vishous fan or not, how you will embrace this story. I love Vishous, he’s my favorite brother, so I loved his and Jane’s story line. And I think it was handled well. I think Vishous was sufficiently repentant, and I think both of their issues were brought to the forefront and dealt with. And to those who say Vishous was not his old self, I say that he’s evolving and that’s a good thing.
I also loved Assail and Sola’s story, but like many readers, I’m concerned about how their future will work out.
I think this was a transition book of sorts. Seems like we’re on the cusp. New enemy, new deity, possible new surgeon (maybe Manny/Butch/Jo Early’s father), Murhder. I’m dying to know who stole the book!
I loved the funny moments! The turkey/stuffing/mashed/no veggies scene between V and Phury was hysterical, as well as the My Little Pony PJ pants.
I thought some of the scenes were a little too drawn out, focusing too much on the setting. Ms. Ward has too much story to tell to need any filler. But maybe I was just too anxious to get to the action. Can’t wait til the next book!
I am seriously wondering if the Warden is using a ghost writer. The writing and story doesn't FEEL like her. There isn't the "grab" and "spark" that sucks you in like the previous few books. It almost feels like "fluff". I would rather see the series end on a good strong book, than be strung along with books that just don't hold your attention any longer. I WANT to be excited for a J.R. Ward release again. I have 10 years invested in this series, I LOVE these characters. Please don't show a disservice to them by writing fluff. The men are the badasses any longer. They are singing Moana songs, and wearing MLP pants! I want the grit and the fighting and rough sex back!
Although I liked this book more than the Chosen and was interested in where the story was going to go, there were things missing for me. I missed the interactions between the people in the household. I don't feel like I've seen that in quite a while. Also missed some of the characters that we haven't seen in a while. I didn't dislike this book, but I also didn't love it like I do many times with JR Ward's books. Book 12 The King was the last book I gave a 5.
What I liked:
V & Jane working things out.
I was happy for this story because I've always liked Assail.
Discovering that Boo was the Scribe Virgin.
The talk between V and Phury was nice.
What I didn't like:
Unanswered questions like 1. Who Stole the book. 2. What about Jo Early? 3. What about Marcus?
I felt like all the parts with Victoria were unneeded. I'm also creeped out with Throe and his book.
Sola's major crazy moment after she found out about Assail bothered me. In all honesty, she wouldn't have been in many of the situations she was in in the past if she hadn't messed with her employer and if she hadn't continued to snoop on Assail. She brought a lot on herself. And he really did save her and avenge her. He also let her go when she didn't want to stay with him. He'd never hurt her and no one at the brotherhood had either. So, she just sounded b*tchy to me the way she was acting. Also, when he was going to meet with Victoria, she'd already decided to leave again so really, she had no right to be involved in any of his business. She always acted like she was so untouchable.
I thought that V and Jane had learned some things but then came to find out that they didn't really. For him to discount Lassiter was an as*hole move considering he got him to Jane after he thought she died. V thinks so little of so many people in my opinion. Then with Jane, she's always thought of herself above other people because she's such a great doctor. It made me mad when she decided that she was going to tell the civilian exactly what happened to his relative. Because 1. They didn't have enough information to go on. 2. What if he tells other people and more people want answers that The Brotherhood doesn't have. 3. It was Wrath's call because he's the king. V shouldn't have backed her on that. Wrath should have had a talk with her after and said, "The next time you make a call that's not your decision but mine because I'm the king, you're out of a job." In moments like that all she cares about is her patients and she doesn't think about consequences for things that she says. She needs to be taken down a notch.
