The other reviewers gushed about how great this book was so I read it. It was okay, but not really great. The sex scenes were hot, but other that that, the story is mediocre and the characters are very stereotypical.
As a vampire fan I did not really like the author's take on the old myth, making them a separate race that feed off each other rather than humans. Instead of vampires, they felt more like aliens or some mystical race of magical beings other than vampires. I understand authors like adding their own personal twists to stories, but this author's version seemed to me like the vamps are called vampires just so you can say this is a vampire book and that will draw a certain fan base (like me) to read it.
Also the main villain was to me, was very blah. I thought the scenes with the antagonist took away from a lot of the story, as it was pretty boring as I waited for the tale to return to the main characters. I know the author wanted to show how evil Mr. X was, but knowing the villain's motives, in my opinion, takes away from any animosity I felt for the villain. He seem more like a wannabe instead of someone you just love to hate because he's so evil type. I think the story would have been more interesting and involved if the protagonists learned more about the antagonist the same time the reader did through the story. As it was, by the end of the book, the main characters fought and defeated the bad guys, not knowing much about what the villain did, or even who he was.
As a love story, it's typical sexy girl meets sexy dark mysterious guy and the hop into the sack and fall madly in love. There are a lot of erotic scenes in the book, so if you like that stuff this is a good book for it.
I did somewhat enjoy the novel, but I am not sure if I will get any of the other books in the series, as I was not very impressed with the first book.
Wow! This story really pulls you in. I usually limit my listen to my 90 minutes commute, not with this book. Once I started listing, it was like a roller coaster. You only exit at the end of the ride! I was totally hooked on the story and the reader.
I truly enjoyed this book. The story was a different take on vampires and was very good at character development.
This is a series with several separate books but you can't get all the books on Audible. Very disappointing!
Therefore, I listened to Book 1 and Book 2. But there is no Book 3 or Book 4 to download.
So far I have loved this entire series - hot sex and an intriguing plot - who would have thought you could bring the two together?? Well worth the credit, well worth buying.
I just finished this book, and it just kind of stopped. The last line was "This is just going to kill Fury" then I got the audible message, it seemed to just end. Is this the correct last line of the story? Enjoyed the story very much.
I have read the entire series many times and I love it. I have often checked to see if it is available on Audible. FINALLY, it is! :) I can't wait to get the rest of the series!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I am so late for this review... But if u have not started on the BDB, well then u are missing one awesome vampire series! Love them all
This is my first Brotherhood book and it was well worth my time and credit. I have never read anything like it. Great Book!
I LOVED this book, listened to it in 2 days. I am excited to get the rest of the series. J.R. Ward is a great writer.
It's written by a stereotypical man's point of view of what he thinks women want in romance. I either cringed in discuss at the "romance" parts or laughed out loud.
The whole thing
