Review: I was glad I finally got see what was going on with Butch. It’s been a bit awkward reading about him when didn’t do much of anything in the past couple of books. So I was happy for him to finally get his own story, which I never would have thought would be as complex as it turned out.
I think that’s what got me really hooked on this book and its plot, because Butch kind of just pops up and surprises you. Then its all BAM! He got a really cool story plot in the series, that I really never saw coming.
What also surprised me was Marissa. She was this kind of annoying person, who turned out to be really nice in the first book. And in this book with Butch, she was able to gain so much more depth to her character. By the end of the book I really liked her, because she was finally standing up for herself and figuring out what she wanted to do to help people. She’s like an angle almost.
Anyway book four of the Black Dagger Brotherhood ended up being really great, and also helped set up some of the other books to come in the series.
4 out of 5 stars.
