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. Among them, none relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood . . .
The only pure-bred vampire left on the planet, 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—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate – Wrath must usher the beautiful female into the world of the undead . . .
Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn't there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of brotherhood and blood frighten her. But his touch ignites a dawning hunger that threatens to consume them both . . .

I surrendered to the dark side and finally started this highly recommended series. Last year I had a chance to review the tenth book in the series and I didn’t have a single problem following the events, but my curiosity to find out everything about everyone was devouring me. So here I am with the very first instalment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

I admit I had a few highs and lows during the first chapters, but then both plot and characters got into me so much that I started reading like a crazy. Should I point out how HOT those vampires are? Perhaps I should warn you that we’re talking about huge hotness here . . . But does the heat come just from their handsome presence? Nope. Each character has a very dark nature, some even a curse of their own, and they’re all tortured heroes with an amazing taste in music! They really give you the perfect soundtrack to keep the reading on the right level and, among other millionth things, they make you laugh. Boys aside, I must give kudos to Beth, an heroine who brilliantly made her entry in a world I dare you not to want to be in. I liked her a lot and seeing the development of her relationship with Wrath was great and touching.

Easy to imagine what I am reading right now, huh? After all, when you taste something so sinfully good, you can’t have enough of it . . .
