This is book five in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This is Vishous's story.
Vishous is probably the most complex character in the brotherhood series. He is intelligent, a computer wiz. He has had it hard growing up and has suffered a great deal at the hands of his father 'The Bloodletter'. Vishous has a hard shell that he keeps wrapped around himself, keeping anyone for seeing his vulnerable side. He is Butch's best friend and the two of them have a beautiful relationship that is a pleasure to read about.
Dr Jane Whitcomb is head of the cardiac trauma team. She meets V when he is taken into her care through a gunshot wound. She finds an extraordinary discovery when she examines her patient. Vishous is soothed be Jane's presence. Jane is then brought to the brotherhoods mansion to look after Vishous. The two of them are a prefect match. V finds himself able to open up about his past, he feels like Jane understands.
Vishous finds out alot of shocking revelations in this book. I love hearing about the rest of the Brotherhood throughout the novels. The ending is heart rendering (i had a little cry). I read somewhere that some people had a problem with the ending to this book because they didn't get how it worked out, I didn't have that problem. But you can read The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider's Guide, which is fantastic, it give some more information.
That's all I will say as I do not want to give everything away. Vishous and Jane's story is one of my favourites in the series along with Zsadist's story.
J.R Ward is a fantastic writer and she really does do the best one liners. Next in the series is 'Lover Enshrined' Phury's story.
