Overview

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • New enemies rise and desire burns in the latest thrilling novel of the paranormal romance series the Black Dagger Brotherhood. 
 
Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safecracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell, keeping her nose clean and her beloved grandmother safe. Her heart, though, is back up north, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, son of Assail, who never meant to fall in love—and certainly not with a human woman. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?

As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, and the Brotherhood needs Assail back on his feet, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn’t understand. And when Assail’s truth comes out, will she run from the horror . . . or follow her heart into the arms of the male who loves her more than life itself?

This isn't the best BDB book, but it was good. We're getting closer to full blown wartime and they now have two enemies to rid themselves of in order for the race to live in any type of peace. I'm assuming Brother Murhder will be brought back into the fold. Can't wait for the next book.

There are many, many things to like about JR Ward's writing. The trait I enjoyed so much in this book was she allowed the reader to check in with all our favorite characters. Often in a long lived series the reader forgets the intricacies of the various couple's lives. Ward gives you the opportunity to visit with past stories that were so special and take a peek into what's been going on. I enjoyed this addition to the series and like always I'm already looking forward to the next!

My favorite author has yet again given me a great story to immerse myself into. Every free moment of the last couple of days was spent just wanting to know what was going to happen next! This book feels like a new beginning in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. New bad guys (and gals) have emerged and our heroes are ever diligent in their job to keep their race and their loved ones guarded and safe. As always, these superior males are worthy and will prove to be a huge challenge to their adversaries. And how wonderful, after a wait that felt like forever, to at last get Assail and Marisol&rsquo;s story. Love them! What I am really enjoying, through these last handful of books in this series, is the multiple romantic story lines, especially those that bring back these wonderful characters from the very beginning of the series and revisiting their relationships. Love is without a doubt the greatest force, power and privilege.

This was kind of a tough read. Assail's gone crazy from detox and Sola's just kind of adrift. I love her grandmother and Assail's cousins though. V and Jane's conflict is difficult to experience because they're both so stubborn. We saw their journey begin one or even two books ago and I was really excited to finally get their happily ever after. The most interesting thing about this installment is that Throe introduces a new threat to both the brotherhood and the race as a whole. It's creepy, mysterious, and extremely dangerous. Trez gets a development after losing Selena in The Shadows and it's honestly really awkward. I guess I will just have to read on to see, but at the moment, I really don't know how I feel about his situation. The Thief is a satisfying conclusion to Assail and Sola's romance. We've seen them struggle for a few books and it was great to see them find happiness.

As always I loved the book, but frankly I found Sola to be a weak, whiney character not worthy of a vampire's mate. V and Jane are always an excellent story line. Loved it.

I have read all of J.R. Ward's books in the BlackDagger brotherhood series and the Fallen Angeles series. I love her writing style, her quick whit, and gender equality. Not to mention some of the hottest gay sex I've ever read!! I just love this series so much i read it over and over from start to finish at least once a year. It's that good!!

Books in a series, with off-shoots of stories about secondary characters, sometimes fall short of expectations. Thief not only met expectations, but surpassed them. Thief circled back to finish the story of Assail and Sola, with Vishous and Jane continuing their journey. One story did not overwhelm or take away from the other, with the two couples being artfully entwined. There was just enough of the Brotherhood life to keep those of us placated, like me, who want to know how the rest are doing and want to continue to see the daily interactions of the Brotherhood, but not so much as to overwhelm the main story. Ribboned throughout, there are more delicious tidbits of stories brewing with Mhurder, Throe, Jo, and V's visions while in the Sanctuary. I look forward to reading about them all and, of course, to satisfy my craving to know more about the lives of the BDB!
