Publisher's Summary

Return to the dark and sexy Black Dagger Brotherhood world in this second prison camp instalment from number one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward....

Rio Hernandez-Guerrero has been working undercover to bring down Caldwell's worst drug lord, the elusive and sadistic Mozart. She knows she's finally getting close to him when she's ordered to negotiate a massive deal with a shadowy supplier. But what shows up at the meeting...is nothing she expects.

Betrayed by his clan, Lucan was locked up decades ago for the crime of being both wolven and vampire. Forced to engage in drug-dealing by the prison camp's despot, he is not looking for anything more complicated in his cold and isolated life. But then a human woman, with a stare that tames him, crosses his path....

Rio captures a predator's heart, but they both have secrets that threaten not only their fate as soulmates but their very lives. Will they find a way to win at the deadly game they're both playing...or will their inner natures shatter their love?

The wold

Loved it. Didn't feel as spicy as her other books. Loved it but felt more like a filler novella or an extended prequel to the next book more then a book on its own. I hope we get more of Lucan in the other books. Loved the characters. Had some good laughs with Rage and V. Always a good read ❤️

SADLY DISAPPOINTING

I’m sorry I’ve had to give this book a lower score than her usual five from me for the Black Dagger Brotherhood and their challenging paranormal romances.. but for me, there was no real romance in amongst the drama, action and world-building. Yes, this is a very talented and skilful author who has weaved another suspenseful plot set in and around the prison where the unwanted in the paranormal world are worker bees for drug lords. However, for me, there just wasn’t the usual chemistry, build, passion or heat between the the half wolf/half vampire hero and the undercover Cop heroine. So, it was a good paranormal web and it includes Vic and Butch and some of the BD Brothers which was great.. but I wanted to FEEL the love too.

Worth a credit? If you’re like me and you love the Brothers and you’re intrigued by this side-shoot of a story then yes, it’s a good stepping stone to the next instalment from the secret Prison that the Brotherhood want to find and destroy. But, if you just want a PNR then maybe look elsewhere. Just my opinion though.

Howlingly Good Read

Following on from The Jackal, the first of the Black Dagger Prison Camp stories, this book finds wolven Luc making drug deals for The Executioner, the ruler of the illegal prison camp. He ends up saving undercover cop Rio and hiding her out at the camp. The B story follows Butch's old partner Jose and his encroaching retirement.
it's another great story from J R Ward, and I like that she is expanding the Brotherhood universe with this spin off and the claimed series.
As always there's action, intrigue, in depth characters, humour and electric romance.
Great stuff.

Couldn't stop listening

Expect a fast paced, adrenaline infused, addictive ride. Personally I'd award this writer a literary gold medal for her ability to still keep me hanging on for yet another instalment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood universe, with high class story telling, that's wonderfully exciting to read and listen to.
