Incredible world developed for our enjoyment. Ward is a wizard; she knows just how to push the buttons of her audience. Awesome story line and character development, you really feel a part of the action. Lovely fantasy opportunities.

This series of books is very different from most books I have read....really hard to compare.
I've been listening to this series in order and it's been great 'till now. What happened to Jim Frangione? It sounds like him I guess but the story is being read COMPLETELY different than the first 4 books. This is the first time you can't tell which male is talking and half the time their pitch is raised to female status. That never happened in the other books. Even common recurring words are now pronounced differently. Sympath has become symphath as one example. Was this the first book he recorded and the reading evolved from here or is this a narrator bait and switch. It's confusing. It's a great book all in all but I hope the narration in the next books returns to the norm that caught my attention to start with.
Though the backstory in this book was engrossing, the plot didn't move along quickly enough for me and I found the end unsettling. I still really enjoy these books and look forward to the next.
Narration - same problem as always. I can't tell the difference in voices. When two brothers are speaking, I completely lose track of the ability to tell who's talking.
I listened to this series several times. Great story , great characters. I love the combination of the author and narrator.
Really enjoyed this book from the BDB series, and loved the relationship between V & Butch. (tear) really think they should win the best supporting actor award if this was ever a movie, Frodo and Sam’s friendship from LOTR has nothing on their relationship. And love Doc Jane’s story in this, could not think of a better women to tame V’s beast.
God Bless Audible Sales!! I found J.R. Ward's work when "Covet" was on sale. I immediately fell in love with the fallen Angel, but I didn't think I would like any book about vampires, thinking they had to be just like every other vampire story on TV or the movie screen. However, when Lover Unbound came up on one of Audible's sales, I decided to buy it and check it out. Since it was at a lower price, I didn't have much to lose and I loved the Fallen Angel series so much, I wanted to see what else J.R. Ward could offer.
She did not disappoint me! Although V and Jane's story is the 5th of the brotherhood series, it seemed the perfect book to suck you in. It gives you just enough background to know what's going on with each character, but not enough to confuse you. The fact that Ward has vampires feed from their own kind and not from humans make this series more likable, so it's not creepy. The way each male vampire bonds with a female is so powerful and erotic. The way each character revolves around each other, so you know the story continues to build, not just around the two main characters but with future stories yet to come, is exciting. J.R. Ward is brillant!! Since's V and Jane's story did not dive into the lessers history, it was easy to start on this book and not get lost. However, I immediately used my next two credits on the first two books from the series once I finished Lover Unbound. And will continue to do so until I have heard them all. I have also gone back to read several of Ward's early book published under Jessica Byrd. I'm hooked and it all started with a Fallen Angel named Jim and a vampire named Vishous.
I love this series!!!!! Since she has an upcoming book coming out march I had to go back and relive this series I looooooove Vishous' story and can't wait for his sister to enter the picture. I also like the narrator, he curses exactly the way I picture those big guys doing it, makes me smile every time lol, levered I know but if the guy had been a pansy or worse a woman!!! I would have screamed. I like this guys voice.
