The Carpathians are a race of vampiric-like people for whom females are rare and they are slowly dying. Enter the males, for whom, around the 200 year mark lose the ability to feel emotions, see colours, etc., and only honour and self-discipline stops them from descending into madness and becoming true vampires.
So our heroes definitely fill the tortured and tormented category. They are powerful, especially their leader, and they have a group of humans who hunt them.
The males need their lifemates, for they can save them from their dissension into madness, and bring joy, colour and light back into their lives. This, naturally, makes them possessive and overprotective.
We do have dark, dangerous and sexy vampires in this series, especially the delicious Dmitri, but the main draw is the seriously alpha alpha-male angels and archangels.
Yet again we have another treacherous and threatening world for our heroes and heroines to live in, making violence a normal and accepted part of their lives. We have a group of warriors, both male and female, with troubled pasts that affect their relationships, self-worth, world view, and feelings about love and commitment.
Together they will forge a love that burns as hot as the sun and which they must defend against the dark forces that plague them.
Instead of dark, dangerous and sexy vampires, we have dark and dangerous demons.
They are just as troubled and tortured as the warriors in the Brotherhood, and just as strong and ruthless as well, when necessary or provoked.
Their world is a violent one – what with The Aegis hunting them, believing them to be evil incarnate, and many of their own kind being aggressive and vicious.
Our heroes are often afraid of falling in love, fighting it with all their might, but when they’ve fallen, that’s it; they’re possessive, protective and dangerous to all but their lady love.
Ever heard of Pandora’s Box? Well that myth is alive and well in Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series. We have a brotherhood of elite warriors for the gods, who let pride get in the way and are suffering for it. For centuries they have carried the demons released from the box within their bodies.
Tormented by their curse, they hide away in a fortress, avoiding humans as much as possible, until Ashlyn stumbles upon Maddox, the one harbouring Violence. Together they may find peace from their ‘curses’ but before that there are a lot of obstacles to overcome, such as Hunters determined to exterminate them, Maddox’s guilt, and a death-curse where he dies every night and spends hours tortured in Hell…
We don’t have a brotherhood, per se, in this series, not in the same way as BDB anyway, but our heroes are often strong, tough and dangerous, as their world – the Lore – is also a violent one. They also become extremely possessive and protective when they fall in love (once they’ve admitted it anyway).
Like Demonica, the world building is larger than Black Dagger Brotherhood, with a greater variety of species. The ‘brotherhood’ becomes more apparent as you work your way through the series, as you soon realise they are forming a web of connections, growing exponentially. Even so, our heroes and heroines will still do everything in their power for their friends, families and beloveds.
This doesn’t stop it from being a hot read, with lots of sexy alpha-male types to enjoy, making it a good example of more books like the Black Dagger Brotherhood to try.
