Meet Sahvage: a powerful MMA fighter with a buried secret that could change the world of Caldwell forever...
Sahvage has been living under the radar for centuries-and he has every intention of staying 'dead and buried.' But when a civilian female sucks him into her dangerous battle with an evil as ancient as time, his protective side overrides his common sense.
Mae has lost everything, and desperation sets her on a collision course with fate. Determined to reverse a tragedy, she goes where mortals should fear to tread- and comes face to face with the Brotherhood's new enemy. She also discovers a love she never expected to find with Sahvage, but there can be no future for them.
Knowing they will part, the two band together to fight against what Mae unknowingly unleashed- as the Brotherhood closes in to reclaim one of their damned, and the evil vows to destroy them all...
This novel is about Sahvage and Mae.
In the beginning, we meet Mae. She is searching for Rhev in an underground fighting club to ask for his help. Instead, she is confronted with meeting Sahvage, a vampire about to start fighting a human. Mae is in desperate need to find The Book. She needs a spell from it or she will lose everything. When Sahvage is harmed, she can't stay away and decides to help.
Savage knows the Book and it's spells are a no-go. It can only bring more problems to the race. He knows The Book needs to be destroyed but he also can’t let this female fight alone the evil that she has attracted and is near her.
Another great couple has been added to the BDB series. I liked both main characters and the seeds planted for the next book involving Balthazar and Erika.
