The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sinner brings another hot adventure of true love and ultimate sacrifice in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.
The location of the glymera’s notorious prison camp was lost after the raids. When a freak accident provides Nyx clues to where her sister may still be doing time, she becomes determined to find the secret subterranean labyrinth. Embarking on a journey under the earth, she learns a terrible truth—and meets a male who changes everything forever.
The Jackal has been in the camp for so long he cannot recall anything of the freedom he once knew. Trapped by circumstances out of his control, he helps Nyx because he cannot help himself. After she discovers what happened to her sister, getting her back out becomes a deadly mission for them both.
United by a passion they can’t deny, they work together on an escape plan for Nyx—even though their destiny is to be forever apart. And as the Black Dagger Brotherhood is called upon for help, and Rhage discovers he has a half-brother who’s falsely imprisoned, a devious warden plots the deaths of them all…even the Brothers.

~ Maria’s Review ~

The Jackal by JR Ward is a great start to a new BDB spin off series. Author JR Ward delivers another story enhancing our favorite world.

I loved the backstory we get about the camp and loved reading about Rhage and Darius in the past. Their connection and loyalty stays true to the brotherhood our OG BDB share.

Though it was a little too insta-love for me, I did enjoy the relationship between Nyx and the Jackal. Corruption, power, abuse are rampant in the camp. Nyx is determined to complete her quest despite the odds against her. The Jackal feels a oral urge to help and protect her, regardless of the repercussions. The premise is engaging.

We also meet a new breed of character that has been a long time coming and I’m excited!!

Secrets, lies, and danger made this story intriguing. It did lag a little for me at times. But, a good story and solid start to the spinoff.  JR Ward continues to develop and build the BDB world while staying true to the characters we love.
