Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover-for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Owned by this dark side, Rhage fears the time when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.
Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage’s protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. She lost her faith in miracles years ago. But when Rhage’s intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves…
I know that many of the fans favor Rhage from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. And although it is not my first read, and I really tried, but still, I failed to like him, or his story. In Lover Eternal, my main complaint is the alteration (or revealing the true nature?) of Rhage’s personality.
I prefer the devilish, funny, sexy Rhage he was before, not that weeping, whining, peevish man, who behaves like a stray dog, indeed. (Mary, you were so right!)
Rhage wants Mary to be honest with him, to share her feelings and fears with him, to let him into her life in a couple of days. But he doesn’t tell her very important things either. Unspoken words, hidden facts, and mistaken assumptions poison their relationship. Of course, in time they get over this.
Not disliked, but not fully satisfied with
- John Matthew’s storyline! I cried with him over that bowl of rice. Love that scene.
- O. Distinguishable antagonist, a psychopath. Really terrifying.
- Mary’s scene with the beast.
- More and more information of the world and traditions of the vampires, and the Brotherhood itself.
- Bella and Zsadist. Their story is intriguingly prepared.
