Usually I don't ready fantasy novels set in modern times but for this book it made some of the characters more relatable.
My favorite character... well its a tie between Wrath and Beth.
This was the first audio book that I listened to that Jim Frangione narrated.I am listening right now to the second book.

The dialogue was juvenile, the love story under-developed and the plot thin and basically without suspense. This was painful to listen to and disappointing in every way.
Well, what Can I Say........I LOVE This Book!! I am So HOOKED! I don't have a Favorite Brother as of "YET" I LIKE them All, Well Wait So Far I Really LIKE Wrath! I Really like the way Wrath & Beth Are Together, The way they Take CARE of Each other. You Can FEEL The LOVE they Feel for each other They DON'T Hesitate to do ANYTHING for each other!! They would KILL to Protect Each other.
BRAVO, J.R.Ward BRAVO!!!!
I LOVE "The Black Dagger Brotherhood"!!!!!
This is the 4th Novel that I've Read By J.R.Ward I've Also Read "The Fallen Angels Series" And I LOVEEEE that Series AS WELL!!!
Can't Wait For the Book After "Envy" 3rd in the Series!
The book was really cool. I liked reading a non YA vampire novel. I also enjoyed the plot. Definitely kept me interested the entire time.
Narration: I could not distinguish any voice in this book except for Marissa. The narrator applied no difference in vocal characteristics to the different characters. If the author didn't preface a sentence with the name of the character speaking, I would have to figure it out by context.
I'm always looking for new story lines. This is the first of the series and I loved it. If you like a good love story mixed with intrigue, danger, laughter and supernatural characters, this is the series. I couldn't stop listening.
I love that the main male character is perfect even with imperfections. I love that, so sick of beautiful men and women in these vampire books. Makes them more believable. Also love and enjoy the world that Ward had created, want more on audible.
The Perfect Storm! Audible, a great Audiobooks Reader and an adventure/romance in my little green iPod...
These books are like a "romance" version of Twilight with an R rating! A tad "cheesy" but still with a plot! I recommend them.
Love the books ~ bought them to read to myself after this. Was hard to get the narrator out of my head at first, though. He is awful and I had to keep repeating lines from the book to myself as he read so that I could take it seriously. Great books, just not as read here.
I have wanted to check out this book ever since I've had to direct sheepish-looking men in my bookstore to the Romance section for the next one out in the series (which they swear does NOT belong in romance -- it's a manly vampire series, ahem). But why I didn't check out the reviews, which DID warn me (maybe I thought I had?) or, at the very least, listen to a preview is beyond me and why I deserve the waste of a credit.
I have no idea if these books are any good. I am relieved that JR Ward does not constantly refer to genitals in conversation as "your sex" as other romances I've tried tend to do. But she does, and it makes me cringe. But there is evidently some hot sex going on, full of passion and arousal and dark heat -- but what I can't get past is that THIS 'HOT' ROMANCE IS BEING READ BY MY GRANDPA.
Okay? Everyone sounds like they're pushing eighty and have a varying degree of a regional Pennsylvania Dutch accent. So I guess that means that this "hot" romance is being read by my Amish grandpa. He needs to stick to articles by the likes of Art Buchwald and maybe Paul Harvey. Whose brilliant idea was this?
If I thought I could get my credit back I would, but I suppose I will consider it a lesson learned. Now I will be going to my local library to see if I can check out the book rather than pay for it, in case it just sucks overall, as the reviews are saying. The whole convenient degrees of blindness does bother me a bit.
Yes it is good. If u like Christine Feehan, Sherilyn Kenyon, and books in that genre u will love this. I had read J.R. Ward b4 and didn't like the book but it was a different series full of gangs and slang and rap music references bleh .....This has those but not in excess.
