Timelord Iain | 15692 comments If you make it to Lover Reborn, I might suffer through it for kicks... once upon a time, I was looking forward to Lover At Last...

If you make it to The Shadows/The Beast, you should probably be threading in the Black Dagger Legacy books, they focus on Black Dagger training school candidates, but each book also has a plotline involving a couple from the main series, so they ARE relevant, from my understanding...

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments I was wondering why those have different titles.

The Black Dagger Legacy books are a return to the series' PNR roots... as the series progresses, the romance loses focus and the many POVs and the war with the myriad enemies gains focus...

And the main series titles shifted when JR Ward started giving the early couples a 2nd book, with Trouble In Paradise plotlines... The King is the 2nd book about Wrath, The Beast focuses on Rhage again... that tendency might have shifted, with the beginning of the Legacy books, since that gave JR Ward a new outlet for these second stories for old couples...

The newest book, The Savior, looks interesting... JR Ward has been promising this book for over a decade, but the storyline of BDB just keeps ballooning, with new enemies and recurring old ones, that it never quite happened until now... it's like Dark-Hunters, in that way...

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Oh. Ok. Thank you for explaining Iain.

One unrelated question: Why Eeyawn? And where's your old pic!? I liked that one better. :D

Ugh, I didn't know there was another series. Man there's a lot of books here. I don't know if I have patience for all of them, but if they start losing some romance maybe. The romance is so cliche and eye rolly. I think I made it to Lover Avenged so if you all are still reading at that point I'll join in.

Because Iain and Eeyawn are pronounced similarly (E-in vs E-awn) and I'm a bit of a depressed looking person most of the time with my frown and hoodie... and I've been known to hibernate in the winter and sleep 12-16hrs in a single day before...

I linked them Disney Pokemon evolutions a couple weeks ago and Zaara pointed out the Iain to Eeyawn similarities, so I trimmed the image down to be my profile pic for awhile after Christmas... the old hoodie pic is in my photos, and will be dusted off sometime in 2019, I'm sure...

You stopped about when people consider the focus to start shifting the series from PNR to UF... the 5th book is the transition point, altho there are still couples in each book that pair off romantically... it's just they get less and less total pagetime compared to the war stuff... most storylines tend to last 3-4 books from introduction to resolution, with different ones starting and ending in each book, so it's a rolling plotline.... to use a Senate analogy, Senators serve 6 year terms, but 33-34 Senators are elected every 2 years... that's how the plot starts to roll...

Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments Not reading your spoiler. Guess this buddy read came just in time cuz honestly without it I doubt I'd have gone back to the series.

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 35 comments Joining! I will join in February since I left it in the five book but maybe will pass around to comment when you guys started it.


message 15: by Choko (new)

Choko (chokog) | 5364 comments Well, I read the first several and then got obsessed with straight up Fantasy, so the series got left behind, but I would love to read them all, so this will get me motivated 😀


message 16: by Shaitarn (new)

Shaitarn | 1889 comments I think I have the first two books knocking around - I've certainly read the first before. I might join in if I can find them.


message 17: by Laura (new)

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments I'm starting this tomorrow. :) We'll have separate threads for each book - Angela will make those after she comes back from the holiday.

Anyone else willing to start?

Shaitarn | 1889 comments I should finish Dracula tomorrow and might read this alongside the next Crown of Stars book - I've got a bit of a 'vampire itch' that's needs scratching just now!
