Black Dagger Legacy, Book 3
I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series
Rhage, Paradise, Craeg, other members of The Brotherhood
I’ve missed Ms Ward’s writing. I love the flow of the stories, the characters, the world she has built. Every time I take a trip to Caldwell I recall why I love it so much. Okay now that I’ve fangirled appropriately let’s move on to this story. I’m not sure if I wasn’t paying attention or what but Saxton and Ruhn were at total surprise for me. A surprise I love mind you but I didn’t see it coming. Ruhn story is so complex. He has done so much for his family. I’m glad he has Saxton to comfort him. I was so happy with Minnie’s decision in the end too. Now Novo and Peyton are the perfect smart ass couple. And I think Novo should have let Peyton punch Oscar… after the pictures of course. It was good to see Peyton grow up a bit. I think he and Novo have a fun future ahead of them.
The Random Thoughts:
The Score Card:
Book two was so much better than book one, Blood Kiss. I loved the fact that it focused a lot on Rhage and Mary so it was very much a continuation of The Beast. Definitely, read The Beast before this book. Axe and Elise were also great. They were a strong set of characters, their plot line was strong and well developed, and the conflicts kept the story moving along great. Axe was the tough guy type with a heart of gold and he believed that Elise was the "spoiled little rich girl" type but as he got to know her he comes to realize that she is his perfect match to fill the void he has had since he lost his father in the raids. Elise has been drawn to Axe since the moment she met him and even his rough and rude edges won't keep her away from him when he is hired to be her body guard. There isn't anything I didn't like about the story or characters. The passion was great, the emotional turmoil for Rhage and Mary with their daughter Bitty was hard to watch but a great story line, love them as a couple.
