New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward appeases her many fans with her latest novel, Blood Vow, the second installment in her Black Dagger Legacy, the spin-off series from the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood novels.

Vampire warrior trainee Axe is a loner, a man without family or social status. Beautiful, brilliant Elise is Axe’s exact opposite—a rich aristocrat. When Elise’s father fears for her safety, he hires Axe to guard her, and the powerful attraction between Elise and Axe blazes out of control. Axe knows he should keep her out of his dark world, but Elise needs his protection, and neither can obey the rules that would keep them apart. Loyal and fierce, Axe will risk death to save a Brother, and a shocking turn of events means putting everything on the line for both Axe and Elise. Can this couple face their deepest fears and find happiness together, or are they destined to be torn apart?

Nail-biting action scenes, hot romance and a hero and heroine readers will cheer for make this novel a stellar read. A secondary plot involving fan favorites Rhage and Mary gives readers a fascinating look into the ongoing lives of the original Black Dagger Brotherhood. Ward pulls out all the stops with this latest novel, including teasing readers with a hint at future plot lines. If you’re looking for nonstop action, steamy sexual tension, heart-wrenching emotion and absorbing characters, this excellent book is for you.
