Stacy I am about 50 pages in on this first book of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, and am about to throw in the towel. I have always loved vampire books, and have friends that have urged me to read this series - but honestly, the author's writing style drives me batty. It's clear she's a woman trying so very hard to seem hip and edgy. I mean, all the vampires are leather-clad "thugs" who listen to rap, drive fancy cars, and throw around slang like "FUBAR," "I'm outtie," and "off the chain?" Seriously!? Is this what constitutes hip hop culture for J.R. Ward? Oh wait, no, she cemented her clearly "cool" status when she mentioned that the "king" vampire was listening to Jay-Z's "The Black Album."

Stacy Oh, and I didn't even mention the names -Phury, Wrath, Vishous, Tohrment, Rhage, Zsadist, and Darius. I guess Darius got killed off early on in the first book because his name wasn't edgy enough.
