It is so incredible that this is her first series. I cannot wait to hear what she writes next. She is so talented!! This series has it all. You must read. But beware for some very intense love. I cant wait for Lover mine.
I wasn't sure that I was going to enjoy this series but it I couldn't stop listening to this book. I also bought the book series and read them when I had free time. I Love the BDB series. I hope JR Ward continues to write about the brothers as more brothers join. I love it... I highly recommend this series.
I like some vampire books but can definitely do without romance novels of any kind. Sigh.. unrequited and angst just isn't my cup of tea
Alright, so this is DEFINITELY a "romance" novel, and I can't say anything, because that's pretty much what it's billed as.
I finished listening to "covet", by JR Ward, and really really enjoyed that book. Thought I'd give this a go, even though the description of "romance novel" was a bad omen...
This one was better than most of the genre. As a romance novel goes, it sticks to a lot of the rules of the trade, and glosses over some others. As a "vampire" novel, it's acutally kind of neat. The culture and mythos in the book are interesting and different. I actually liked the authors portrayal of vampires a lot.
Other than that, there are some thin plot points (developments that seem to occur with little or no explanation) and the charater development is not as rich as it could be; but there are like 7 more novels to develop characters in, it seems.
It took a bit for me to get into the narrator's voice, but it often does. He did a good enough job but it wasn't amazing.
Still, the story was fun, the "romance" (for lack of a better word) was steamy (and fun) and, yes, I did download the next one.
I'm still holding out for the follow-up to "covet", however.
Most excellent story/writing! Can't wait to read the next one in the series. Coudln't hardly get out of my car (where I listen to audio books) for this one.
Great vampire fantasy world and interesting characters. I think I will like reading this series.
If you want to listen to a series of great books, this is the start of it all...get all of them. you won't regret it believe me...I have read each one and have them all downloaded on my i-touch...great stuff....
I loved this book, as a first book in the black dagger brotherhood series it started with a bang. Wrath is the most dominant character of the brotherhood and i thought it was brilliant to start with his story. Bella's character is soft but also very strong, which is needed to couple with Wrath's character
Dark Lover is a great first book in a series about Vampires. It is scenes in it that will make you blush even though you are the only one in the room. The author does a great job if informing the reader of terms and events in the book. One of my favorite book series!
