This seventeenth book on the brotherhood series is a good one especially for those who have read the previous parts and are a huge fan of the series because the book lacks certain details about the characters and their nature, likes and dislikes are not told in detail and thus for the one who is dealing with this piece for the first time understanding the book would naturally be an uphill task. J.R. Ward has woven the series in such a way that we are always waiting for the next part and luckily the parts just keep on coming.
This time we again meet Murhder but the details are not there related to his past that was a usual routine in the previous books and that has been a key element of the writer’s works that he relates something that has happened in the past to the present, stories like The Thief, Dark Lover can be read along with this one if someone likes such themes and plots. There is a new element in the series this time and that is the addition of new characters like Sarah.
Sarah has presented as a brave girl with always right decisions under her sleeve that way she mixes nicely with the Brotherhood and becomes a part of it no time. The ending of the story is also one of a kind and you can listen to the story again and again so that you can enjoy the end for another time. The narration is great though the pronunciation of Jim Frangione shows variation at different sections of the series still it is not of any sort of trouble. The people who have listened to his voice in the previous parts can adjust with the new pronunciation in no time.
