She becomes a wahlker, having a vision before the door to the Fade as she lay dying. The vision is of her son, Wrath II, who guides her back to the land of the living. Tohrture discusses what happened with Wrath I, and he reveals that it is the same as what had happened to Wrath I's father. The conspiracy is confirmed by Abalone I, who tells the King that he overheard of the conspiracy from the other advisors to the King, the members of the glymera who wanted to replace Wrath I with Enoch, his cousin. Wrath I and the Brothers set a trap for Enoch and six other advisors, and they slaughtered them all for their treachery. Anha's pregnancy was confirmed, but Wrath's throne was constantly under attack from similar conspiracies over the following years (at least 8 others).

She is kidnapped by a Sympath soon after and goes through her first needing. The Sympath repeatedly rapes Rodalhynda until she is impregnated. Darius and Tohrment I are tasked by Rosalhynda's parents to find her and rescue her. The pair located Rosalhynda and kill the Sympath, setting her free. They return Rosalhynda to her parents, but the glymera couple shun their daughter, shaming her for being raped and impregnated by a Sympath. They denounce her, and Rosalhynda goes into a deep depression. Tohrment I and Darius care for Rosalhynda through her pregnancy and then help her deliver the child. Rosalhynda commits suicide soon after, and Tohrment I buries her under an apple tree. Darius takes Rosalhynda's baby and finds an adoptive family for her. Before they leave her in the new couple's care, Darius names the baby 'Xhexania'. The two continue on their journeys. Feeling compassion for Rosalhynda, the Scribe Virgin removes her spirit from the In Between and allows her to serve with the Chosen in the Sanctuary. The Scribe Virgin gives her a solid body so Rosalhynda can carry out her tasks. Rosalhynda abandons her name and henceforth calls herself 'No'One'.

December, 1731 - Xcor, bastard blooded son of an unknown glymera Vampire and the Black Dagger Brother, Hharm, is born in a cave in the Old Country, during a violent winter storm (an historic one). Hharm disavows him the moment he sees Xcor's deformed mouth, and charges the female to care for him in punishment for cursing Hharm's seed with her "foul womb". Hharm turns his back on both the female and Xcor.
1739 - Vishous meets Darius in Italy. Darius takes Vishous to meet Wrath II
~1741 - Xcor's mahmen is given the news that her charge of caring for Hharm's bastard son, Xcor, is now over as a result of Hharm getting a 'perfect' blooded son at long last (the son's name is not revealed). Xcor's mahmen abandons Xcor at the cottage where they'd lived, leaving him tied up and collared outside without a care for his safety or a backward glance. Xcor begs her not to go and watches her leave, but hours later, he escapes his captivity when he realises he will die if he continues to stay outside. He escapes a wolf attack by hiding in the cottage.
~1741-1756 or 1757 - Xcor lives alone in the abandoned cottage, shunned by Vampire society for his deformed face. He survives on wit and cunning alone.
1756-1757 - Xcor undergoes his transition and survives it by trading away his cottage to a local Vampire female to provide his blood needs so he can live through the change. Homeless and looking for a place to belong thereafter, Xcor runs across a group of Vampire male soldiers on the road as they are trying to rob others. He gets into a fight with them and by pure luck and sheer determination, he defeats them. Immediately after that fight, he meets the Bloodletter. Impressed by Xcor's tenacity, strength, and natural fighting prowess, the Bloodletter claims to be Xcor's long-missing blooded father to convince him to join his forces. Believing the lie, Xcor joins the Bloodletter's camp and becomes one of the Band of Bastards.

The day after that, he checks himself out of the clinic without anyone knowing, never thanking Tohrment for his help.

1997 - Jane Whitcomb's 13th birthday sleep-over party is cancelled when her father comes home. Her mother picks her up after school at the Greenwich County Day School in Greenwich, CT with the news. Jane is disappointed and mouths off, which earns her no supper that evening and her cake being thrown in the trash. Her sister, Hannah, sneaks in a meal to her and gives her a hand-made card with the two of them on the front, holding hands and smiling. Jane is grateful. At midnight, Jane sneaks an Ouija board out of her closet and decides to play it alone (it was to be a game during her party). She asks it, "What's the name of the boy I'm going to marry?" When it doesn't work, she wraps on the wall for her sister to come to her bedroom to play with her. Hannah enters and they ask the Ouija board who Hannah's going to marry. The plank doesn't move. They ask who Jane's going to marry, and this time the plank moves. It spells out VISHOUS. Hannah asks it what she'll get for Christmas, and again the plank doesn't move. When she refines her question and asks will she get anything for Christmas, the plank answers 'no'. Believing the board was 'broken', the girls put it away and go to sleep. Sometime later that night, Hannah comes into Jane's room and tells her she's going away and that she's scared. Jane tried to console her, but Hannah seemed resigned. She leaves Jane's room to return to her own. That was a Saturday morning. Hours later, Jane awoke to the sound of heavy footsteps and ran to Hannah's room. Hannah was dead in her bed; her heart had given out (she'd had congenital heart disease). Jane ran back to her room and hid under her bed covers, realising the Ouija board had been right about Hannah's future - there would be no Christmas presents or marrying for her.
Early-2005 - Beginning of "Dark Lover" - Darius is murdered by the Lessers when a bomb planted in his car explodes in Caldwell, New York. In the Fade, Darius convinces the Scribe Virgin to allow him to be reincarnated so he can watch over Beth; she takes away his ability to speak, his memories of his life as Darius, and gives him a second life -- as John Matthew. The Scribe Virgin travels back in time to 1983 to leave the baby, John Matthew, in a bus station for humans to find. In the present, Caldwell Detective Brian "Butch" O'Neal and his partner, Detective Jose de la Cruz, are brought in on the Darius car bombing. Wrath II and Beth meet and fall instantly for each other. They have sex. Wrath II releases Marissa from their engagement. Butch meets Marissa, and they fall instantly for each other, but when she doesn't appear again, he thinks she's blown him off and is brokenhearted. Butch meets Xhexania at a club, and they have sex, but Butch regrets it immediately afterwards. Beth goes through her transition with Wrath II's help, and he bonds to her. Havers plots with Lessers to have Wrath killed for disgracing Marissa. Wrath and Beth mate, and she becomes Queen of all the Vampires. She also permanently leaves behind her life as a human, including her job as a reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal. Butch and Vishous become the best of friends, and in July, Butch moves into The Pitt at the Brotherhood's mansion, leaving behind his life in the human world as well, including his job as a police officer for the Caldwell Police Department. Havers' plot to kill Wrath II fails and is revealed. Wrath II decides to allow Havers to live, despite his treasonous ways, and Wrath II steps down from active duty as a Brother in the field and steps into the role of King of his people full-time.
Mid 2005 - Beginning of "Lover Eternal" - John Matthew, a mute pre-trans orphan, calls the Suicide Prevention Hotline and listens to Mary Madonna Luce talk to him. She tracks him down and takes him out of his hopeless, homeless situation. With the help of her neighbor-friend, Bella (who is a Vampire, although Mary doesn't know it at first), Mary brings John to the Brotherhood mansion at Bella's behest. John becomes the unofficially adopted son of Tohrment I and Wellesandra, who take him in and give him his first family. Zsadist and Bella meet and she falls instantly for him, despite the fact he tries to scare her off. Phury becomes very attracted to Bella, despite the fact he knows she prefers his scarred and emotionally damaged twin. Mary and Rhage meet and begin dating. They have sex and fall in love. Rhage finds out that Mary has terminal leukemia, and Mary pushes him away. After having sex with random women, Rhage realises nothing can make him not want to be with Mary and they get back together. Together, they tame Rhage's curse, The Beast, allowing them to be together without Rhage losing control. Mary dies of her illness, but the Scribe Virgin brings her back to life, tying her to Rhage's life. Bella is kidnapped by Lessers, and Zsadist goes after her. Beginning of "Lover Awakened" - Bella is being held captive by Mr. O of the Lessening Society, who mistakes her for his dead, human wife (they look similar). She is tortured for six weeks by Mr. O before Zsadist finally finds her and rescues her. He brings her back to the Brotherhood Mansion and tends to her in his room until she heals. The Brotherhood opens up the training center to a new class of recruits; Qhuinn, Blaylock, Lash, and John Matthew all join. John, Qhuinn, and Blaylock become friends, and Lash becomes the class bully. Bella finds out about Zsadist's past as a blood slave captive of an abusive female Vampire, and attempts to help him overcome his emotional issues with sex, blood feeding from a female, and caring for others. John Matthew meets Xhexania at ZeroSum, where he, Qhuinn, and Blaylock go sometimes to blow off steam. Bella goes into her needing, and Zsadist has sex with her, bonding to her in the process. They fall in love. Phury begins to do drugs, buying them from Rehvenge. Rehvenge and Bella's mahmen dies. Zsadist lets Bella go, believing himself too damaged to deserve her love. Zsadist goes to Mary and asks her help in teaching him how to be better to win back Bella. They begin with teaching him how to read and write.

2006 - Two months after she left Caldwell, Bella returns to the Brotherhood mansion to tell Zsadist that she conceived during her needing, and that he is going to be a father. Zsadist shows Bella how much he's changed and tells her that he loves her. They agree to get back together. Zsadist and Bella mate. Beginning of "Lover Revealed" - By February, Vishous' precognition is beginning to fade away, but he tells no one. Butch drinks a little of Vishous' blood. Wellesandra and her unborn son, Tohrment II, are murdered by a Lesser. Tohrment I disappears in his grief. John Matthew mourns Wellsie's death and Tohr's abandonment. Butch is captured by Lessers and The Omega puts some of his essence into Butch, beginning the 'Dhestroyer prophecy'. Butch is rescued by Vishous and returned to the Brotherhood mansion. Rehvenge admits he is in unrequited love with Marissa. Havers ejects Marissa from the family home for having become romantically and sexually involved with a human. Marissa goes to the Brotherhood mansion, and Wrath II and Beth agree she should move in. Butch calls his sister, Joyce O'Neal-Rafferty, and learns his mother is in a care facility and is suffering from Alzheimer's. Marissa's bloodlust takes her over and she goes to Rehvenge for help in easing it, emotionally devastating Butch. In a drunken rage, Butch confronts Rehvenge on feeding Marissa from his vein. Vishous takes Butch home to the Brotherhood compound, and Marissa is there. Marissa loses her virginity to Butch that night. The next day, Butch gets into a fight with some Lessers to save a female Vampire and her daughter, and his new power as the Dhestroyer kicks in; he inhales the Lesser, ashing it. Blaylock goes through his transition. Butch undergoes an ancient ancestor regression ritual, and they discover Butch is related to Wrath II and the First Family somewhere in his lineage. Butch decides he wants to undergo a surgical transition to become a Vampire, too. He tells Marissa about his tragic childhood and his sister's murder, and how he's never felt like he ever belonged anywhere until he met the Brothers and her. The Scribe Virgin appears and sanctifies the transition attempt, as well as Marissa and Butch's mating. Butch transitions into a Vampire and bonds as a Vampire male does to Marissa. Out in the field, Butch once more destroys a Lesser with his new powers, and Mr. X realises finally that Butch is the one he's been waiting for, not Mr. V. Vishous begins to have an emotional breakdown. John Matthew finds out that his classmate, Hhurt, died the night before during his transition. The Scribe Virgin appears to Butch and Vishous and tells them a new era in the war has finally come with the appearance of Butch, the Dhestroyer, and then directs them to reading the prophecy. Vishous learns his cursed hand has the power to heal Butch when he uses his powers to destroy Lessers. Butch shows Marissa his findings, and she realises this means Butch is going to be used as a weapon by the Brotherhood in the war against the Lessers. Butch is okay with his new role, but Marissa is not. She breaks-up with him as a result. John Matthew meets the Chosen known as Layla, who will be his blood donor during his transition, which is coming soon. Butch goes out fighting with the Brothers and inhales the Lesser known as Mr. V, destroying him. As the elder sibling of their family, Marissa assumes the position as head of her family on the glymera Council and her first order of business is to shut down all talk of sehcluding un-mated females. Mr. X approaches Butch and asks Butch to end him like he did Mr. V. Butch attempts to inhale Mr. X, but The Omega blocks his power somehow, so instead Butch kills Mr. X with a dagger, thwarting Mr. X's attempt to destroy himself permanently and instead sending him back to The Omega, who will torture him for eternity for his betrayal. Butch is inducted into the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Marissa decides to create a home for abused female Vampires and children, calling it Safe Place. Beth, Bella, and Mary talk to Marissa about accepting Butch as a warrior, and Marissa finally accepts that the male she loves has always been a fighter, and always will be one. Butch and Marissa mate. Joyce visits her mother, Odell O'Neal, in the care facility. Odell tells Joyce that Butch had come to see her, to tell her he'd gotten married. She then confesses that Butch had been conceived with a doctor at the hospital where she'd worked years earlier, and that she'd cheated on her husband, Edward O'Neal, with this unnamed doctor. Joyce believes her mother is hallucinating or fantasizing the whole thing, and so doesn't believe her.
2006 - (timeline inconsistency) The events between "Lover Revealed" and "Lover Mine" are claimed to take only one year and would culminate in this year (according to John Matthew, regarding his friendship with Blaylock). Further, J.R. Ward claims all events from "Dark Lover" to "The Thief" (including the BDB Legacy series) transpired within a two-year timeframe after "Dark Lover", but the novel timelines - specifically pertaining to weather/seasons passing and pregnancy times for Bella, Layla, and Beth - do not match that contention. Also, the cultural and slang references used by the Brothers and others within the narrative are contemporary to the years listed below, which provides further proof that the timeline has progressed beyond the end of 2006)
2007 - Nalla is born (early) to Zsadist and Bella. Beginning of "Lover Unbound" - Vishous is brought to the Chosen Sanctuary by his mother, The Scribe Virgin, who tells him he must become the Primale and mate all of the Chosen within the Sanctuary, so he can beget a new generation of Vampire warriors to fight the Lessening Society. Vishous is shot in the field and ends up in a human hospital, where he meets Doctor Jane Whitcomb, his emergency surgery doctor. Vishous convinces the others to kidnap Jane and bring her back to the mansion with them to help him with his recovery. Jane and Vishous fall in love. Vishous returns Jane to the human world once he is healed, and he erases her memories of them. Vishous goes to the Sanctuary to take up the role of the Primale, but can't do it, for his heart belongs to Jane now. Phury steps up and volunteers to take Vishous' place as Primale and The Scribe Virgin allows it. Vishous returns to Jane and gives her back her memories. Jane is mortally wounded by a Lesser's bullet and dies. Vishous attempts to resurrect her, but is stopped by The Scribe Virgin. Sad for her son's suffering, The Scribe Virgin sacrifices her happiness (she destroys the birds that sing to her every day) to have Jane's ghost tied to Vishous (the ghost can become corporeal as she wishes, but will never age). Phury officially becomes the Primale of the Vampire race. Beginning of "Lover Enshrined" - Phury meets Cormia, but refuses to mate her. Cormia goes down to Earth with the Primale, and takes a room in the Brotherhood's mansion. Hhurt goes into his transition and dies. Lash's dog, King, dies (Lash is 24 years old).
2008 - At the mansion, Cormia begins to learn about life outside the Sanctuary and begins to evolve her thinking about her place in the world and what she wants out of life. Phury struggles with his worsening drug addiction. Qhuinn, Lash, then John Matthew all transition into adult Vampires. Qhuinn begins a massive campaign of sleeping around with human and Vampire females and males, alike. He convinces Blay to join him sometimes in a threesome/moresome with the ladies (Blay and Qhuinn never touch each other, only the women). Blaylock begins to realise that his long-time feelings for Qhuinn are definitely love, and not in a brotherly way, but he hides that fact from everyone. Qhuinn kills Lash while protecting John Matthew from him. Qhuinn is given the title of ahstrux nohstrum, or bodyguard for John Matthew by Wrath II to prevent Qhuinn from going to jail for Lash's murder. Lash's corpse is abducted by Lessers and brought to The Omega, who performs a Lessening ritual on him to resurrect Lash from the dead. Lash becomes the Lesser King. Lash kills Ibix, Rayelle, and their children in their family home. Lash and his Lessers go on a killing spree, hunting down Vampire families and murdering them, then stealing their goods and money to fund their new venture (drug running and gun buying). Lash's Lessers kill Axewell's father, who is working at a house belonging to one of the glymera families (the aristocrat Vampires all escape to a safe room and lock the workers out, and the Lessers slaughter the unlucky workers). Lash kills Qhuinn's father, mother, and sister, but kidnaps Luchas, Qhuinn's brother, and tortures him. Lash then dumps Luchas into a barrel of the black oily substance that is The Omega's blood (this, effectively, puts Luchas into a state of suspended animation), and seals the barrel up, putting it in some warehouse for later use. Phury and Cormia give into their lust and have sex. Cormia decides to leave Earth and return to Sanctuary, brokenhearted that Phury will not do what is right by her and the other Chosen. Phury overdoses on heroine and nearly dies. Zsadist has a serious talk with Phury and Wrath II decides that Phury is too unpredictable to be in the Brotherhood any longer. Phury realises the mess he's made of his life and goes to Sanctuary to change everything: he decides that the Chosen should be set free to decide what they want for themselves, rather than be unhappy and bound by tradition. The Scribe Virgin lets the Chosen go, but Phury agrees to be responsible for their safety and happiness, no matter whether they stay in Sanctuary or go down to Earth. Cormia and Phury return to Earth together, and live in Rehvenge's cabin up north with some of the Chosen. Phury begins attending drug counselling. Phury and Cormia mate.
2009 - Beginning of "Lover Avenged" - Ehlena meets Rehvenge when he comes into Haver's clinic. He returns regularly after that just to see her, and she pretends not to be attracted to him to keep things professional. Vincent DiPietro (main protagonist from Covet, part of The Fallen Angels series) designs and has built Assail II's home in Caldwell, New York. Ehlena begins talking on the phone to Rehvenge. She steals medicine from the hospital to help him when he is ill, and loses her job as a result. Rehvenge goes up north for his monthly visit to the Princess, who is the current Queen of the Sympaths and Rehvenge's blooded half-sister (on his father's side). He pays her 'tribute' in the form of a bag of rubies and sex, per their long-standing agreement, so the Princess will leave Xhex alone. Trez drives Rehvenge back afterwards and helps his friend recover from the poisoning in his system caused by having sex with the Princess. Tohrment I returns to the mansion, accompanied by Lassiter, the Fallen Angel. John Matthew is having a hard time reconciling with Tohr for having just left them all after Wellsie's death. Lash meets with the Princess (who he believes is really a male at first sight) to discuss allying the Lessening Society with the Sympaths. Feeling better, Rehvenge has dinner with Ehlena. They have sex and Rehvenge's bonding scent is triggered, as is his ability to have sex with her, despite having doped up in advance of the date to keep his Sympath side in check. Ehlena's father dies. John Matthew and Xhex have sex; John loses his virginity. Xhex rejects him afterwards, and a brokenhearted John goes on a bender, having random sex with lots of females and drinking a lot. Xhex notices and is hurt by his attempt to get even with her, but she's too afraid to take up with another male after the last relationship she had (with Muhrder) went so wrong. Lash is gifted the Princess by her husband (who is also her blooded uncle) for her attempted betrayal. Lash takes the Princess prisoner and rapes her repeatedly. Ehlena finds out Rehvenge's secrets - that he is part-Sympath, that he is being blackmailed into sleeping with his half-sister, and that he is a drug lord and pimp in Caldwell -- and she breaks up with him. Rehvenge blows up ZeroSum, and attempts to make it look like he's died in the bombing of the club. Instead, he is taken prisoner by his uncle, the Sympath King, and tortured for having slept with the Princess and colluded with her. Xhex confronts Ehlena about her condemning Rehv, and Ehlena decides to fight for the male she loves. Getting the Brotherhood's help, Ehlena, Xhex, and the Shadow brothers, Trez and iAm, go to the Colony to save Rehv. The Princess escapes Lash and runs for the Colony. Lash shows up at the Colony to take the Princess back and finds the Brotherhood there. They fight. Lash escapes the fighting to find the Princess, who has gone to find Rehv. Ehlena, Xhex, and Zsadist find Rehv chained up and rescue him. Jealous of Ehlena, the Princess attempts to kill her, but she is fatally wounded and dies. Rehv uses his Sympath powers to kill his uncle and seize the throne, becoming the Sympath's new king. Using his magical powers of obfuscation, Lash kidnaps Xhex and takes her to his temporary home. Rehv and Ehlena mate, and he makes her the Queen of the Sympaths.
sometime between 2009-2014: Novalina (Novo) goes through her transition and a few years later, her needing. Oskar services her and she conceives Serenity. Oskar and Novo break-up, and Oskar begins to date Sophya instead. Serenity dies 10 months into the pregnancy and Novo buries her.
2010 - Beginning of "Lover MIne" - Xhex is beaten and raped repeatedly by Lash in his home. Bonded to Xhex, like it or not, John Matthew has been looking for her ever since her disappearance from the Colony, and is going fair mad as the search for her continues to turn up nothing. A human film crew, including discontented secret lovers Greg Winn and Holly Fleet, visit Eliahu Rathboone's "haunted" mansion in the south to do an expose about him and his ghost that supposedly lives in the mansion. Xhex escapes captivity and returns to the Brotherhood.

Jane visits her old friend, Manuel "Manny" Manello, and requests his help in attempting to help find a medical solution to Payne's injuries. Manny's horse, Glory, has recently suffered a devastating leg injury, and he fears he's going to have to put his beautiful race horse down. Depressed by the thought, Manny decides to go to the Brotherhood mansion to help the woman in trouble. He falls instantly in love with Payne the moment he meets her, and she with him. Over time, Manny helps Payne learn to accept that the loss of her legs isn't the end of the line for her. Her healing powers begin to awaken, and as a result, her paralysis is reversed. Payne heals Glory's injuries with her new power.

2012 - Beginning of "Lover Reborn" - Spring: Tohrment I's suicidal actions lead him to walking into a hail of gunfire during a fight. Impressed by Tohr's courage, Xcor snipes Lessers from a nearby building, aiding Tohrment. This help is caught on video and uploaded to the internet by someone dubbing themselves 'vamp9120'. Tohr and No'One begin a year long affair as Tohr attempts to rescue his dead shellan, Wellesandra, and his dead unborn son, Tohrment II, from the In-Between, with the help of Lassiter. Fall: No'One changes her name to Autumn. Layla is asked to give blood to Throe II to save his life. Throe II summons Layla to him through their blood bond to save Xcor, who is dying. Layla and Xcor meet and both know instantly that they are destined mates. (Timeline inconsistency - at the beginning of "The Chosen", Xcor states he'd known Layla for a year and a half, which would have put their meeting around Summer, 2013 instead). Layla saves Xcor's life by giving him blood. Autumn goes into her needing. Tohr saves Wellsie and his son, allowing their souls to pass on into the Fade. Autumn also finds her resolution and passes into the Fade, but Lassiter retrieves her (having made a deal with the Scribe Virgin to take her place once she decides to diminish and pass on, to keep the balance in the universe). Winter: Tohrment I and Autumn officially mate.
2013 - January-February (according to the snow storm + post-Christmas) - Layla goes into her needing and lays with Qhuinn. Layla conceives. Beth conceives with Wrath II, but neither know it because she does not go into a needing period (it's believed this is due to her half-Human heritage trumping her Vampire biology). Beginning of "Lover At Last" - Qhuinn gets his Hummer jacked by two joyriders who crash it and kill themselves. Blaylock and Saxton break up. Marisol "Sola Morte" Carvalho takes a job from Ricardo Benloise, an international mafia drug lord who has a home in Caldwell, New York. Assail II and Sola meet, and he begins obsessing over her as a mated male does his female (she skiis over snow, indicating it's still winter). Saxton goes on vacation, leaving the mansion and heading to Florida. Qhuinn and Blaylock have sex in secret, but a series of misunderstandings and miscommunication keep them apart otherwise. Assail II begins his attempts to take over the drug scene in Caldwell, New York. Sola is kidnapped by the Benloise mafia, and tortured and raped by various members. Trez meets the Chosen Selena. The Brotherhood rescue Luchas from the vat of Lesser blood he'd been submerged and suspended in after his torture by Lash.

Blaylock gives Qhuinn his family's crest ring. Qhuinn and Blaylock officially mate. Beginning of "The King" - December - It's been four months since Beth conceived, but she has none of the typical pregnancy signs (no morning sickness, strange cravings, weird smells, exhaustion), so she still does not know she is pregnant. Beth sits with a pregnant Layla, hoping the hormones in the air will trigger her needing so she can become pregnant. Wrath II finds out and the two fight over the issue, for Wrath does not want children. Trez and Selena spend time together, and the attraction between them in clear. s'Ex appears to iAm and demands Trez takes his arranged place back home in the Shadow's Territory. Assail and his two cousins, Ehric and Evale, rescue Sola from the Benloise mafia, killing all the mafia members, including Ricardo and Eduardo, in the process (its still chilly enough outside for a heavy coat and there's some snow on the ground, so early-to-mid spring). Sola returns to her grandmother's house, and the two women decide to move to Florida to get away and start over. Assail II has sex with Sola, but agrees to let her leave without mating her officially (he remains a bonded male with an incomplete bond). Sola and her grandmother move to Florida.

Beginning of "The Shadows" - Xcor finds the Brotherhood mansion by following the bond of blood he shares with Layla (spring-summer rain outside). He blackmails Layla into meeting with him weekly in exchange for not telling any the Band of Bastards where the mansion is located.

Trez and Selena mate (late spring-early summer, due to weather outside). iAm and maichen have sex and fall in love.

Anslem murders Allishon. The Brotherhood training program progresses, and Paradise becomes the Prima of her class. Craeg and Paradise mate. Anslem attempts to murder Paradise, but is killed by Craeg. The Scribe Virgin diminished and fades away, per the agreement she made with Lassiter (and to help diminish the power of The Omega, her brother, as they are universal opposites). Beginning of "The Beast" - Rhage begins to act and feel out of sorts as a result of Selena's death (it reminds him too keenly of nearly losing Mary). Vishous warns Rhage not to accompany them on a particular mission, but Rhage ignores him and is shot and nearly killed. Xcor is injured and falls into a coma. The Omega personally appears on the battlefield to collect the black energy of his fallen Lessers, which Vishous finds to be odd behavior.

Axewell and Elise mate. Ruhn moves into the Brotherhood mansion and celebrates his first Christmas with Rhage, Mary, and Bitty (they give him sweaters and slacks for presents). Beginning of "The Chosen" - Xcor wakes up sometime in December in the evening, finding he is being held prisoner in a cave by the Brotherhood. Layla gives birth to fraternal twins, Lyric II and Rhampage. Lassiter becomes the Scribe Virgin's replacement. A human woman named Theresa (a.k.a. Tres) appears before Trez, and she is a doppleganger for Selena, although she does not seem to gave any of Selena's memories. Trez begins pursuing her, despite iAm's warnings not to do so. Layla reveals to Qhuinn that she's been secretly seeing Xcor for the last year, and is in love with him. Xcor attempts to shoot Layla in a fit of rage and schisms with Blaylock over it.

2015 - Beginning of "Blood Fury" - January - A snowstorm blows into Caldwell. Peyton is torn between his fading feelings of love for Paradise and his growing attraction to Novo. He confesses to Paradise that he's been in love with her, and things get awkward between them. Determined not to be any more pathetic over his unrequited feelings, he turns his attention to Novo. Novo is attracted to Peyton, but due to her bad past with Oskar, she has vowed never to fall in love again (sex with no strings is her style). She and Peyton give into their attraction and have sex in the training facility at the mansion, but Peyton soon realizes that Novo's head is somewhere else and they stop. Saxton and Ruhn meet and are attracted to each other from the get-go. Peyton returns home to have a confrontation with his father, who is determined that Peyton should end his partying days, give up the foolishness of being a Brotherhood recruit, and become a 'respectable' male by marrying within his glymera station and taking up the family business. Disheartened by everything going wrong in his life, Peyton give in to his father's demands to meet and mate a female of his father's choosing. In the meantime, he continues to chase Novo, who he is finding to be quite fascinating. Later, in the field mission, Novo is stabbed by a Lesser in the heart and flatlines twice on the table while Manny works on saving her life. She survives surgery. During her recovery, Peyton visits her, and the two fall in love. Ruhn and Saxton work to help Minnie Rowe, a widowed Vampire, save her farmhouse from a group of human men determined to run her off her property. In the doing, the two become very close and eventually, Ruhn admits he is attracted to Saxton. They two kiss at the Commodore, in Saxton's flat. Later, at Minnie's farmhouse, Ruhn appears and aggressively seduces Saxton in the kitchen. In the awkward aftermath, the two dance around their budding feelings for each other. Peyton's sire is determined to bring him to heel and introduces him to Romina, a female glymera member, with the intention of matching them for a mating. Peyton meets with her, but leaves before the end of dinner to go to Novo to feed her blood, so she can recover faster. He and Novo begin to bond (slowly). While out on a date, Ruhn and Saxton are attacked by two humans who work for the housing development company determined to run Minnie Rowe out of town so they can take her lands. Ruhn's former training as a cage fighter saves the day, but the level of aggression and lack of recognition in Ruhn's eyes during the fight spooks Saxton. Back at Minnie's farmhouse, the two talk about Ruhn's horrific past and Saxton begins to find his love for Blaylock is fading, to be replaced by a growing, deeper love for Ruhn. After being yelled at by his sire for leaving dinner so abruptly, Peyton goes out to a nightclub, but finds that life no longer interests him. Instead, he goes to the Brotherhood clinic to be with Novo. The two make love in one of the recovery room beds, and it is a turning point in their relationship. (remainder of events from Blood Fury to be added here). Sophya mates Oskar. Peyton and Novo mate. Saxton and Ruhn mate.
