Blurb from Goodreads:
#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s novels of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continue as a vampire warrior crosses the line between life and death…and ventures into an erotic world of dark dreams and darker desires.

Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy.

When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams—trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquillity of the Fade—he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. But because Lassiter tells him he must learn to love another to free his former mate, Tohr knows they are all doomed....

Except then a female with a shadowed history begins to get through to him. Against the backdrop of the raging war with the lessers, and with a new clan of vampires vying for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between the buried past and a very hot, passion-filled future…but can his heart let go and set all of them free?

My Review:
WOW. I can't believe I finished it in a day. Never doubt the writings of the Warden ever again. She rules.

I think there's nothing to say because everything that needs to be said has been said by so many others. But, I will reiterate. 

I'm so glad for how things turn out for Tohr. He deserved this book. His own story and I totally adore Autumn from beginning till' the end. I really enjoyed reading about these two. 

I really am rooting for the BoB too and hope for the best for these group of bastards. They aren't all that bad. Just maybe, misguided.

One important thing I HAVE to say. It's Layla. I'm glad I took some time off and only began reading this two months after its release date. Time brings things into perspective and you speculate it with maturity instead of negative emotions. 

I think we readers tend to orbit around and focus too much on the Qhuay coupling. We subconsciously, in a way, blame Layla for "coming between" Qhuinn and Blay. We forget that the problem lies in Qhuinn himself who feels unworthy and not good enough for Blay.

I'm for the future young now. They both need something good in their lives in order for them to move forward. They need something that belongs to them.

Layla has been trained as an ehros her whole life as a Chosen and I forget that it is not her fault to how she feels about being useless in her role/duty. Who and what is expected of her have been deeply ingrained. It's not easy to just change your mindset. What she needs is someone who REALLY loves her. That poor girl...Now, I can truly say I feel for her. Truly feel sorry for her. I am really rooting for Xcor and her. They are good for each other.

The last sentence in chapter 76 was very life-altering. Finally!!!! After so many trials and tribulation for these two, finally, we are getting what we want. Right my fellow Cellies?
