This is not your typical vampire story. J.R. Ward puts an interesting twist on the paranormal world. Big, hunky leather-wearing vampires, "lessers" whose only mission is to kill vampires, the Scribe Virgin and The Omega (something like God/devil...good/evil)and a love story in the mix. There were a lot of things happening in this book, but it's easy to catch on. It was an action-packed read. I think I will be investing in more Black Dagger Brotherhood books!
