Really!? Wow, How did I not know earlier that the hero of this book is going to be Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr from J.R Ward's LOVER UNLEASHED.
Gah, how awesome is this? I love the BDB crossover.
This must mean that we'll also get to see his partner from UNLEASHED...Jose del la Cruz, yippee. Now that just opens up endless possibilities; Butch sightings, Lessers, The Band of Bastards (Throe) and the subsequent headaches leftover from his scrubbing of Veck.
The year long wait for Tohr's book just got a little easier! You rock WARDen.
*Confirmation was given at Ward's latest signing (thanks Mahlet) that Throe from the Band Of Bastards will indeed play a role in ENVY -"has a meaningful moment in it" and that we will see more crossover between the two series in general.*
THE BACK BLURB:
"As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr., grew up in the shadow of evil. Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father—while fighting his inner demons. Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in him is both professional and arousingly personal. And Veck and Sophia have another link: Jim Heron, a mysterious stranger with too many answers...to questions that are deadly. When Veck and Sophia are drawn into the ultimate battle between good and evil, their fallen angel savior is the only thing that stands between them and eternal damnation."
