They are not main BDB characters but the story takes place in the BDB universe so to fully understand it you need knowledge of some of the backstory (Lessers, Shadows, the raids, etc.)(less)
What I love mostly in the BDB series is that the heroes and heroines are less than ideal. And they never had an easy life. They have all suffered somehow and they all have survived and surprisingly they joke about it frequently.
Let's think about it.
●The King himself, Wrath, is blind. He has lost his parents growing up. He blames himself because he did not help them.
●Phury is not whole. He has lost his leg to save his brother. He was made fun of th ...more
I loved the way Ahmare saved him. Totally deserved five extra stars! If you loved the Shadows in the previous BDB books, there was kick ass Nexi, another Shadow for you to fall in love with. The bonus? This story didn't have just ...more
One of my favorite authors, J.R. Ward, released a novella set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. As this is one of my favorite series by her, I was very intrigued to see what this little treat would be like. I’ve always believed in Ward’s writing, but wondered how her writing would fare with short stories. As you know, her books tend to be on the long side, but I’m happy to note that this story definitely fulfill my BDB fan needs nicely.
This book is about Ahmare and Duran, tw ...more
Ward submerses the reader into her story telling with dark and graphically descriptive circumstances that will make the light-hearted reader cringe. That being said, I wouldn't have wanted to miss this shorter additions to the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.
Fast paced, bone chilling, goose-bump raising, and a perfect example of why J.R. Ward is the queen of storytelling.
I received this ARC copy of Prisoner of Night from Gallery. ...more
Gallery is going to lose readers for Ward and the BDB series. Bad advertising and watered down everything.
I’m concerned that this new publisher is watering down everything great about Ward’s work EXCEPT the language. I’m not impressed. Why are there swords instead of daggers on the covers? Why are the covers weird? Why was the book advertised as a Legacy book on the UK cover and a BDB book in the US?! It’s a damn novella in the BDB world. When the author has to go on social ...more

The Black Dagger Brotherhood is one of those must-read PNR series that everyone knows, reads, and loves, and for good reason. There’s nothing quite like this world of vampires and alpha-males, both of which I can never get tired of if J.R. Ward writes it. Some of my favorite bookish heroes have come from this series (RHAGE!) and for that I will forever be grateful to the Warden.
In Prisoner of Night, we get a little break from the BDB boys and are introduce ...more
I never read any of the other books in the series so I am not sure if I was missing something or not. However, to me, this was a standalone. I had no issues following the story.
This book smacks you in the face soon as you start it. It is raw and gruesome in parts, written with such imagery that you almost want to read it in bits and pieces due to the violence. But it also compels you to never put it down!
It’s a story about vamp ...more

You do not have to have read the previous novels to enjoy Prisoner of Night. It's a great way to get to know Ward’s writing style and a bit of the genre. A perfect way to kick off the new year, b ...more
DNF - Returned for Refund
I read a little over a quarter of this novella before giving up. I am a little shocked that I did, because I almost never DNF books.
The story has nothing to do with the BDB, but is about two 'civilian' vampires with sketchy/criminal relatives they are trying to help, or to go get revenge against. Unlike a novella I totally ĺoved, Story of Son, this started off brutal and gory, and wasn't getting better. It just isn't anything I care about, so I returned i ...more
I liked it, it is J.R. Ward after all! But, I fell in love with Dearest Ivie, her other novella, but I found it took me a long time to warm to the characters in this one. Plus I didn't shed a tear, normally her books have be bawling like a baby! Still it was an enjoyable, albeit slightly forgettable, read.
Though touted as a novella. As most .5 editions of series are.
Book 16.5, to be exact.
Readers will be quite pleasantly surprised to find that this novella is in fact, a 300+ page novel. Complete with a very mouth watering prologue.
As for the meat of the story. What readers are presented with is pretty standard hunk ...more
Numa série que está indo para seu 16º livro, com tantos personagens que é dificil até lembrar de todos os nomes, em um enredo enviesado que cada vez faz menos sentido, a autora opta por escrever sobre dois novos personagens, com praticamente zero relevância para o contexto prin ...more
So what did I think.
This woman can do no wrong. I loved Duran (though every time I heard his name I thought of Duran Duran).
Duran was the kind of male I love— broken. Which is why V is my favorite. Funny enough Z never really did it for me. Anywho, I loved him and Amiri together.
Great read, wanted more. Never to end would be good. I can’t wait for next installment.
Antes de comenzar a leer este libro tenía una idea equivocada de lo que era, ya que por la información que había leído previamente pensaba que al igual que “Dearest Ivie”, “Prisoner of night” era una novela corta protagonizada por personajes ajenos a la trama de l ...more
And Duran was kind of an emo.
Z had a waaaaay more shit filled life and he didn't sit around crying 24/7 in his book. ...more
What troubled me most in this story was how the romance was built, in less than 24 hours, despite all the trauma and danger, the main character decides to have sex with a guy she took out of a dungeon ... just because he was attractive. Why have a minimum of self preservation if ...more
I like Duran and Ahmare though this is the first time I would've loved for the heroine to get together with another lady, in this case Nexi. Not that Ahmare ...more
Ward takes a break from her beloved Black Dagger Brotherhood and Legacy series with a BDB side story giving fans a rare look into the lives of four civilians a brother and sister who lost their parents in the raids and two victims of a Vampire only Jonestownesque cult who find each other amidst the rubble of their tortured and shattered lives.
The author pulls on heartstrings while letting her stars get plenty sweaty and bloody full of rage bent on revenge that’s more than ...more
They have to find and retrieve something for her brother to get released.
I loved Duran, he is exactly who you would think of when you think of someone who has been held against their will for that long.
But oddly pos ...more
