Truly, there are so many things happening in this book that it's almost impossible to put it down.
There are character revelations that will leave your mouth hanging open. Some good, some bad, but all of it makes for one hell of a story.
There are all the characters you know and love, along with some very interesting new ones. Some of these characters I just can't wait to learn more about. Can we say...Lassiter? Lol. Oh yeah. I'm dying to know more about that fallen angel.
The war takes a turn as the Omega has pulled an ace out of the hole. ...Brothers beware.
Phury and Cormina are good in this book, but I felt their story wasn't as gripping as the other couples were.
It seemed like the "Love Story" part of the book was left on the back-burner to bring all the other plots into play, which, honestly, was just fine by me.
As I am a fan of Phury I was a little bummed not to see him and Cormina get more action in the book. Phury is such a dedicated brother and has been through so very much; I thought his mating story was going to be a little more profound than what we got to read. Nonetheless I REALLY enjoyed all the other action we got instead. So much action makes you NEED to keep turning page after page to see what happens next.
All I have to say is Ward's next installment (Lover Avenged coming in April (09)) in the Brotherhood series has got to be an incredible read, because the way she left things in Lover Enshrined I can't see how it wouldn't be.
I highly recommend this book, along with all the other Brother books in the series. The Black Dagger Brotherhood is action packed, sexy, sensual, hard, sad, painful, revealing, exciting, and spiked with great humor. I absolutely love these guys!!!
Any vamp lover who is looking for a fresh take on the vampire world NEEDS to read this series.
J.R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series is WONDERFUL.
This book sets the stage for Wrath and his fellow kin...the Brothers. The Brothers are VampireJ.R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series is WONDERFUL.
This book sets the stage for Wrath and his fellow kin...the Brothers. The Brothers are Vampires and they're at war with the Lessening socitey (Vamp hunters).
You have probably read vampires before, but NOT like this. The Brothers are nothing like I have ever read: and they are so very hard to put down.
One of Wrath's long time friends need help with a very delicate matter and asks him for help. Wrath decides that he is not the male to help his friend with this particular problem, but when tragedy hits, Wrath feels compelled to step in for his friend and help after all...
What happens afterwards will keep you tuning the page dying to know more. More about the Brotherhood, more about Wrath and his past, more about...Beth.
There is plenty of mystery, fighting, love, blood, and humor to go around for everyone. These books are found in the romance section, but they are SO much more than that.
If you haven't started this series yet, all I have to say is; What are you waiting for????
**spoiler alert** Ahaaa. Another excellent book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
I absolutely LOVED this book.
The second book in the series is b**spoiler alert** Ahaaa. Another excellent book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
I absolutely LOVED this book.
The second book in the series is based around Rhage and Mary. Their story is compelling and I found that I cracked up at Rhage's witty comments and silly gestures, and Mary was so down to earth. She is the balance that Rhage needed for so long. She fears hardly nothing and has plenty of her own demons to face. So together...they click.
Though, the road for these two is not easy and many things will come between them. Life is fleeting for one of them, and sacrifices must be made.
What happens next; I'll never tell. You must pick this book up and see for yourself. :)
**spoiler alert** This (so far) has been the best book I have read in the Brotherhood series. I just loved it! Excellent.
Zsadist is so much more than ev**spoiler alert** This (so far) has been the best book I have read in the Brotherhood series. I just loved it! Excellent.
Zsadist is so much more than even his own Brothers have given him credit for.
Kidnapped as a baby and forced to be a Bloodslave (amongst other things), Zsadist knows torture, misery, and loss like no other in the Brotherhood.
After being rescued by his twin (Phury) Zsadist knows not how to be...normal. He's very hard, secretive, and stays in the shadows. Of all the Brothers in the Brotherhood, Z is the most feared and very few can handle being around him. They fear for their lives, and other males want Z NO WHERE around their females. They think he is cruel and too unpredictable. Some even want him out of the Brotherhood.
In this book, we get a glimpse into Z's past, and it's very tragic indeed. I found my heart heavy as I read his story and was rooting for him to overcome his tribulations and try to reach out for that very thing he thinks he's incapable of having.
Enter Bella. I adored Bella and I thought she was the strong character Z needed to overcome certian issues. She was calm, understanding, and steadfast. But...will she convince him? Not if the Lessening Society has anything to do with it. And that, you will have to read for yourself. :)
Z and Bella's story is profound and it gripped me from page one. There are more character introductions in this book and you don't want to miss them!
So much happens, and the plot is rolling. Quite the page turner, and I HIGHLY recommend this book!
**spoiler alert** This is book four in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and is yet, another good read...
Butch is a friend of the Brotherhood throu**spoiler alert** This is book four in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and is yet, another good read...
Butch is a friend of the Brotherhood through Beth (Queen of the Vampires and wife of Wrath). He's an ex-homicide detective and has found himself knee-deep in the Vampire and Lessening Societies war, though, as a human the Brothers keep him an arms-length away from battle.
Butch understands why the Brothers wish for him to stay out of the battles between them and the Lessers, but he begins to feel like he's taking advantage of the Brothers by staying with them and living his life much like they do -Minus the fighting.
Until one day, evil finds Butch and now he understands why the Brothers have tried so hard to protect their human friend.
Cursed, he must find his way to safety and back to the Brothers...back to Marrisa. But, will he be able to live amongst them after he's been exposed to so much evil?
More hard choices and more amazing plots keep this story high on my "Must read again" list.
Another perfect rating, for another wonderful book!
**spoiler alert** Fifth entry into the Black Dagger Brother hood and this was totally MY KIND of book! Muhwahahaha...
This book is about Vishous and Jan**spoiler alert** Fifth entry into the Black Dagger Brother hood and this was totally MY KIND of book! Muhwahahaha...
This book is about Vishous and Jane.
I really loved the look we got into V's past. Sad as it may be, it answered some questions I had about Vishous and how he got his Tattoos. Along with revelations about his tat's, you find out may things involving certain people he's related too. And OMG, what revelations they are! I was floored with the things V had went through during his youth, and the things he's destine to become.
And Jane...Jane is V's match in many ways. I really think that V needed someone highly intelligent to match (or almost match) his own IQ. V is not disappointed with this female, and loves to watch the Dr. (Jane) in action.
Being a dominant, V doesn't take orders from anyone -accept the King- that is, until he meets Jane. Not only will she defy him, but she has no reservations about telling V what to do and where to go. It totally turns him on. Lol.
Great book, though, the ending left me a little puzzled. Not as in, I didn't get it. More as in, okaaay, I guess if it works for V, then it works for me. It was different, but not really in a bad way.
All right people, here's what I am going to say about this book: Get it. Get it NOW! Oh la la. So action packed, and there are some new characters onAll right people, here's what I am going to say about this book: Get it. Get it NOW! Oh la la. So action packed, and there are some new characters on board that you will not want to miss meeting. Ohhh yeah. Very strong, complex, determined, and sexy people on board this ship, for sure!
In this book I really see Cat coming into her own, and not backing down without a fight. Period. She's really become a force to be reckoned with, and all other vamps be on the lookout because if you think Cat Crawfield is going to stand for anyone -or things- crap, your Gravely mistaken.
There are some characters that really made me take a second look at them. Before I didn't really care for them, but now I see them in a different light. Some really step up to the plate, whereas others are not so... trustworthy.
And Bones. Ahaaaa what can I say? Shall I count all the ways I adore and praise that yummy vamp? He's another evolution in Cat's world. He grows in a few different ways -at least I think he does- and he lets nothing stand in the way of what he wants or what needs to be done. He is ruthless and unforgiving in certain matters where Cat is concerned. His character flies off the page to me, and with that accent he's so verra yummy. I love that vamp!!!
I gave this book four stars. While I thought it was great, I didn't think it was her best one. Though, the plot is certainly all tying together now, and I can't wait to see what Jeaniene has in store for her readers with the next book: An Early Grave Due out 7-28-2009
That's all I'm going to say about it, and hopefully Nymphie didn't give away too much....more
I had a hard time getting into this book. :( This book begins the start of Viehl's Darkyn series, so there were lots of new characters to try and keepI had a hard time getting into this book. :( This book begins the start of Viehl's Darkyn series, so there were lots of new characters to try and keep straight, and I found a hard time trying to keep track of who was who, and where everyone resided in the book. Some were in America, Italy, and others were in Ireland... The plot kind of jumps around and I was dying to have it come together.
I really liked Michael, but for some reason I didn't really connect with Alexandra. I thought she was a bit abrasive, spoiled, and selfish. But Michael was HAWT! Very dark, smart, and sezzy.
There were some really GREAT twists that I never seen coming! :shock
Some people really shocked and surprised me at the end! And the way this book ended left me [i:]needing[/i:] to know more about the Darkyn and what's going to happen next. :cool:
I gave this book three stars because I thought the story was a bit drawn out. But, I understand that this was an introduction to the series, and this is much the same way I felt about the first Sookie book. It took me a couple of books to really get into that one, and I have a feeling this series may be a lot like Sookie was. ;)
And I also wanna add that, yes, I think this book was dark, which is another reason why I ended up liking it in the end. Because let me tell ya, the end of this book will floor ya with betrayal and all kinds of other good stuff. Really, you won't see it coming... *Nymphie didn't have it figured out*
I am reading Private demon, and I'm really looking forward to seeing Thierry again....more
Samantha was ehh. I mean she was okay, but now that Alex had finally grown on me I really didn't think a whole lot of Sam. SaThis was my kind of book!
Samantha was ehh. I mean she was okay, but now that Alex had finally grown on me I really didn't think a whole lot of Sam. Sam's been through a lot of stuff, so I didn't think she'd be so... trusting. She was alright, but it wasn't her personality that made me turn the pages -that was Lucan's job!
Lucan is hateful, selfish, belittling, uncompromising, and dare I say a little bit of a sadist when it comes to sex... He just flat out doesn't give a sh*t. There are things he says to Samantha that made me reel back like, "Daaaaaamn! That was frikkin bogus, man." *Shakes head* He has a wicked tongue and can be pretty harsh. Like I said, my kind of guy. BUT, is it who he really is? Humm... You'll have to read it and see.
There are a few more new characters that are introduced into the series, and there is one REDHEAD I can't wait to learn more about. We also get more of the brethren in this book, along with more John. There are some interesting turns with what's going down in the brethren and the killer who's leaving little prezzie's for Lucan was NOT who I thought it was. I'd have never of guessed it either. Lol but then again, I like being challenged by a decent plot with good characters in it, so I really didn't mind not knowing until the end. And the end... VERY GOOD, but for a few people (possibly in the next book) it may end up very, very bad.
Yep, I'm officially hooked now.
I gave Dark Need four stars, and it really deserves every single one, and is the BEST book in the series so far! I recommend this book!...more
Okay... so this one was so much better than the first one! *I usually have a hard time with the first book in a series*
Lynn expanded the plot and charOkay... so this one was so much better than the first one! *I usually have a hard time with the first book in a series*
Lynn expanded the plot and character dialog. You have a much better idea who is who, where their at, and what's going on. I liked it.
Jema is very sweet, but seemingly naive. She has many health issue's and has to take medications on a daily basis, which affects the way she lives her life, but she wishes only to live as a normal girl doing all the normal things people at her age do. So against her mother's adverse wishes, Jema decides to work on the side helping police solve cases. Thierry spots her one night while out on a case, and decides he needs to call her over and get some nourishment before he takes his leave to another place. Only now Thierry can't seem to make himself leave Jema behind...
When I read the last book it seemed to drag on a bit and the plot didn't twist and get really interesting (at least for me it didn't) until the end of the book. This one started off rolling... You get to know a few of the other Darkyn kin, and boy oh boy are a couple of those boys YUM-AAAY!
The Brethren are still around, but they kind of take a back seat in this book, which I kind of liked. Alex's brother John is trying to find refuge and another place to begin anew, but falls upon more hard times. Poor John.
Thierry is wild and not what I thought he'd be. Jema is nice, and I liked her character. They both had really great chemistry, and I really liked some of their "fantasies".
But, I did think the "dreaming" thing went a little long... I kind of wanted more "real life" dialog and interaction, but other than that this was a decent read. Though, I have to say when I got to the end of the book I wanted to throw it across the room. I did. Lol It wasn't a bad ending, I was just REALLY PO'd the way Lynn left one of the characters hanging. I actually flipped the page because I thought there was more, and when I turned to continue... that was all she wrote. :(
I gave this book three stars. Not too bad, and WAY better than the first. I would recommend this one....more
So far, this book is probably one of the most surprising in the entire series goes. ...Not because of the plot exactly,Another decent read by Lynn...
So far, this book is probably one of the most surprising in the entire series goes. ...Not because of the plot exactly, but because these characters just popped up out of no where, yet they seem to "fit" into the grand landscape of things.
Gabriel is a tortured soul, and you would think after what he's been through this Darkyn would leave a trail of blood behind him... Yet he is probably one of the sweetest and understanding of the Kyn relations. And the things he can do... Very sweet indeed. I liked him, not loved, but liked. *Has a new found love for webbing*
Nicola was a pretty intense female character, and keeps ya on your toes, but she also makes your teeth grind with the whole "I need to hide my past and run away" bit. She was cool for the most part, but her angst and self diatribes were beginning to give me a headache. She more than rectified that perception of herself once I got to the end of the book.
Of course Lynn still follows along with the other staring characters, which I have grown to appreciate, and I'm thinking there are going to be some BIG things to come!
Micheal and Alexandra go through more tribulations, but... *won't say*
And Richard... Richard FINALLY does something he needed to do a long time ago. THAT I would not ruin for future readers, but know this; it's GOOD!! ...And ebil.
This was a honest read, but not one of my favorites. I don't think it would have been that good if the other stories weren't tied into it like they are. *ALEX ROCKS*
