The series is about a band of bad-ass Vampire warriors keeping the world safe from "lessers", the soulless monsters that prowl the night. Doesn't sound too interesting? No, I can see how that would be. Oh! Did I mention there's tons of sex in them? Yea, that's why the big girls read them! (can't believe I didn't mention that...silly me *wink*)
Each book is about a different brother, this one in particular about Zsadist. No. that's not a typo, each of the bothers has a bad-ass name, spelled a little differently. I thought it was annoying at first now I can't imagine it any other way. There's a great plot (admittedly when they break to go to the "lessers" I tend to skip that stuff....most of it anyway it's boring and in the first 2 book seems to have nothing to do with anything.) the banter between the brothers is both real and humorous.
The only little hiccup in this is that I'm a 31 year old mom who has a hard time admitting that she reads almost all YA fiction. So to take the leap directly into the Romance Novel/Erotica department was more of a plummet for me, and If I couldn't admit to the YA how could I own up to THIS!?
When I went to buy books 3 and 4 I acted like I was 13 year old boy trying to buy a Playboy at the gas station. Sneaking up on the book case, first trying to look at other items around it and seem disinterested in everything. Grabbing the books real fast and tucking them up under my arm so you couldn't see what I was holding. Then, while I waited in the incredibly long line (did I have to come buy these 2 days after Christmas!) and prayed to the God of skinny punks that I got a girl cashier or at least a totally clueless male. (oh thank God I got a girl and she doesn't seem to notice what I bought)
I thought I was in the clear, until she smiled sweetly and said "Have you read this series before?" (no stupid I'm buying books three and four because I like jumping in, in the middle!) She chatted about how she loved them and the 3rd in particular was her favorite, and in the end I was glad I got a BDB (Black dagger Brotherhood) fan as a cashier. Still I felt like I should repent for buying the books, and I'm not even Catholic!
In the end, this book gets 5 Stars from me - the 3rd turned out to be my favorite so far as well.
