Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous son of the Bloodletter possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father's war camp, he was tormented and abused. 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 cannot include her.
Review & Comments
Both V and Jane are complex and interesting characters, but their personalities are shortchanged somewhat in this book by the mystical confluences going on around them as well as their overwhelming relationship with each other. There is little lesser action here and the genre theme of sacrifice is a little overdone.
