This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that does not include her.
This is just a repetition of the previous four books. The only reason I read it, is that Vishous is my favorite character in the whole series. It was so awesome to get the know him! He is so interesting and different and his past is so heartbreaking and barbaric.
However, there’s a woman for him, like there were for the rest of the Brotherhood as well. A female human doctor. Who doesn’t have the least bit of information about supernatural or paranormal world. I didn’t like this Jane character at first. It was difficult to know when she wanted him and when she didn’t and was disgusted by him. When she finally decided to accept her faith, she became somewhat funny and strong-willed, which was traits that suited her really well.
The way the book was build was exactly like the rest of the books. With a main plot, being the two lovers that get together and the lesser plots where we follow the other Black Dagger Brotherhood vampires and the eternal fight between Vampires and Lesser’s. The way those two plots intertwined in this Lovers Unbound, was really well thought off.
The Language is the same as in the previous ones, very Erotic and very describing. I love how the author isn’t afraid of swearing and how direct the conversation is – I do hope that the next books will be slightly different, because I’m starting to get a little annoyed with the introduction of a new character in each book.
