I like this series because each stories is unique enough not to sound too familiar after the second book. What I like about this book? Vishous finally found someone to love. What I didn't like about this book? towards the ending. I though the Virgin Scribe is "The Man", and it turns out that there's someone else above her. There's a mention of a twin, and it looks like another human might be a "Brother". Not that I mind, but I thought you couldn't turn a vampire? You have to be born one. In the beginning of the book, Jane's sister Hannah died, and she was supposed to come up...but her appearance in the 'neither here nor there' was so brief, it was hardly satisfying. It's almost like on the verge of an orgasm, one hair and you're over the edge, but it didn't happen. See how disappointing that was? The whole book however was fantastic as usual for this author.

Here's what amazon said about the book:
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...
