Jim and the expectation of what comes next.
oh my, as soon as I met V he was mine, and if he weren't mentioned I would be upset. That said, in this book as I get to know Xcore a little and start to understand him, I like him more. He's is letting go of who he thought he was and learning who is really is. I like that.
All of it.
The in between, where will it find you.
As one reviewer stated this book is a major roller coaster!!
J.R. Ward's prior books have been filled with each of our heroes emotional turmoil but this book really went beyond those other books. I think Z's book was definitely a hard one to read. The difference with Tor's book is that when you're dealing with a loved ones death and moving on... it's a much more complex and difficult issue to able to get to that
Ok, I love audio books and I've been a member of Audible for several years. I listen to over 10 audio books a month which I either purchase through here or borrow from the library. J. Frangione is one of my favorite voice actors. He is definitely in my opinion one of the best. There is only a few others that I would say are just as or almost as good as he. His ability to bring life and give the characters from any story a voice is really what I love about his performances. By listening to the audio book first then reading it gives me a clearer voice of the characters I love most.
addicted to reading/listening to Murder/Mystery/Thriller books. just recently listening to Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Interesting
I would have to say #3, I have listened to a lot of audiobooks so #3 means it was very very good.
I dont want to spoil the book for anyone else, so I will say the whole book was memorable
Tohrment for sure
Absolutely, I practically did, except while at work then I had to stop listening but I was thinking about listening to it while I was at work
This whole series was awesome, I hope there will be more to come, I love all the characters, So So So Much.
Most definately. This book has action, romance, drama, and a few twist that will blow you away.
The introduction of new characters in the story.
As always he does an excellent job. He is so in tune with the characters.
Oh yes, you won't want to put it down.
The two main characters come full circle in thier own greiving process. You are able to connect with them. This book shows so many different types of love for one another. To me this oneis the best the series thus far.
Okay, so I bought the hard copy and read it yesterday, so I hole hardily recommend this book. One of the best in the serious! A must read....or listen as it maybe. Jim was amazing as usual! The WARDen did it again.
Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Book Review Blogger.
For the second BDB installment in a row I found myself struggling to connect with the couple that’s supposedly at the center of this story. I enjoyed following Tohr on his road to recovery after losing his mate but No’One’s victim-like demeanor and inability to move on without a man’s help just didn’t sit right with me. I also found the chemistry between the two to be only lukewarm at best; quantity is not a good substitute for quality. Thank goodness for Xhex and JM otherwise I think this book would have been a total flop for me.
I started this novel thinking that a reasonable amount of time had passed since Welsie’s death so Tohr moving on made sense. He lost the love of his life and I thought that Ward did a good job of not belittling his heartbreak. However, once No’One was introduced as a possible love interest the brother’s attitude did a complete 180 and not for the better. Tohr came off as a user who was willing to throw anyone under the bus in an attempt to save his mate from the Fade. Unfortunately for No’One, she was easy prey because of her past and went along with Tohrment’s ridiculous tirade.
One of my main pet peeves about this series is the weak female characters and No’One is the most spineless one to date. I understand that she’s had a tough go at it but you’d think she’d have learned to cope after 200 years. I’m sorry but if I’ve learned one thing in my 30 odd years on this Earth it’s that you can’t rely on anyone but yourself. Yes it’s great to have family and a support system but at the end of the day the only person who can initiate change is you. Funny that I know this but that a centuries old vampire hasn’t figured it out… No, instead she needs a man to save her. Puhlease! Plus, why didn’t anyone else in the house step in or at least try to befriend her? In previous books when a character gets stuck on a destructive path the brotherhood takes action. I wasn’t a big fan of the mid-story name change either. On a few occasions I found myself wondering “where the heck did this Autumn person came from?”
The ending flat out pissed me off; if Ward can turn people into ghosts and revive others, why does Welsie even have to move on at all? Especially given what’s revealed about No’One’s situation. Same thing goes for Lassiter, he supposedly makes the ultimate sacrifice yet suffers no consequences? There were just SO many cope-outs made in this book that I don’t even want to go there or I’ll never finish this review. Lover Reborn is worth reading for the Xhex and JM’s side story but other than that, I’m sad to say that I could have done without this book.
got a bit predictable. Enjoyed it but glad its over. JR Ward needs to move on from this series. 10 books was enough.
most all the BDB lovers will listen, but what will they think?
Not another vampire book...
I love the BDB books, this fell short. It almost rambled too long without getting to the meat of the story.
To All My Favorite Narrators: You are the voices in my head...
Loved, loved, loved, this book!
I'm still amazed that 10 books in, this story keeps getting better.
I have listened to all the black dagger brotherhood books twice and I find that JR Ward leaves me with just enough at the end of each book to makes antsy for the next book.Her books always grab me from the beginning and I am hooked until the last paige wanting moor.
My interest in the subject matter is already there. I have all of Chris Feehan's Dark series and I really wish she would write more.
His performance let me shut my eyes and use my imagination to be there, It is like old time radio shows.
I did not want to put the book down, but I had to sleep and do other things as well.
I really do not wish for Jr Ward to rush her next book because she does such a good writer but I am waiting with baited breath for the next book
