In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.
Dr. Sarah Watkins, researcher at a biomedical firm, is struggling with the loss of her fellow scientist fiancé. When the FBI starts asking about his death, she questions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth: Her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew and loved was involved in the torture.
As Murhder and Sarah’s destinies become irrevocably entwined, desire ignites between them. But can they forge a future that spans the divide separating the two species? And as a new foe emerges in the war against the vampires, will Murhder return to his Brothers... or resume his lonely existence forevermore? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Murhder is a character that has been alluded to and whispered about for many books. He is that infamous member of the BDB who was kicked out. It was about time we got his story. Murhder’s story wasn’t anything that I was expecting it to be. I was expecting an evil crazy male, but what we got was a damaged misunderstood, lonely male that missed his brothers. He is just as honorable as any of the other Brother in the BDB. The secondary story revolves around John Mathew, and it is still very apparent he is one of Ward’s favorite characters. I keep thinking they will figure out who John Mathew is. You will have to read the previous books to know that answer. The story also gives us the first appearance of the race’s new deity and possibly his new evil counterpoint. The world is going to be interesting. Murhder and Sarah’s romance was steamy and very passionate. It also brought tears to my eyes a time or two. I was so engrossed with their story. I loved this installment of the BDB, and The Savior is an excellent addition, full of danger, action, passion, and romance. I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.
