Thanks once again to Pheonix, who not only sent over the link to the cover and blurb for the second book in J.R. Ward‘s Black Dagger Legacy series, but who also listened to me whine about the fact that it is hardcover. Don’t get me wrong, I love me the hardcover books, but we were told this series was going to be an old-school paperback PNR series, and it…isn’t. One freakin’ book comes out in paperback and then a switch to hardcover?!? Meh. Anyways, the hardcover Blood Vow will be released on December 6th. Oh, and the blurb is slightly spoilery for those who haven’t finished The Beast.
When a brooding vampire warrior-in-training teams up with a quick-witted aristocrat to solve a deadly mystery, the only thing more dangerous than their mission is their undeniable attraction.
Trainees at the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center continue to prepare for the war against the Lessening Society, but fighting is the last thing on Axe’s mind. Still plagued with the guilt of his father’s death, the brooding loner finds himself battling an unlikely attraction to Peyton’s enticing, aristocratic cousin, Elise. Elise feels it, too – especially when the two are thrown together in unusual circumstances, and she must decide whether she can trust Axe as she uncovers the mystery surrounding her sister’s death.
Meanwhile, Mary and Rhage are fostering Bitty, a young pretrans orphan, and hope to adopt her… until the appearance of a young male claiming to be Bitty’s blooded uncle threatens to tear the new family apart.
Ok, seriously. I am not letting this switch to hardcover thing go. Am I alone in thinking this is weird? If the series had started out that way, great. But to switch after one book bugs me. A lot. It does make a Kindle more attractive, I have to admit, since it would quiet my ocd. Maybe.
