Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male's loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested - and his dangerous mixed blood revealed.
Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood - even though his sister is married to a member - for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world: Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him - and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.
Listen to another Black Dagger Brotherhood chiller.

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
There is a lot of arcing in the BDB books. I think this may be the reason for the success of this series. I keep going because I want to read a specific person's story so I keep going, even if some stories aren't as good. I don't like some of the brothers, but the side stories were enough to keep me interested in continuing where as I may not have if JR Ward had only focused on one individual per book. With that said, this book was way better than the last two. I am having a hard time with Rhevenge though. On one hand he is super sweet with all those he love, but at the same time he is a pimp, drug lord, scumbag all around. I believe actions speak loudly and I had a hard time wrapping around him being the hero in our story, but JR Ward pulled it off somehow, mostly. So far Z and Bella's book is the best. I wasn't a huge fan of Fhury's and Cormia's book.
Absolutely - just read the series in order... each book tends to build on the other.
Jim is great!
This is my absolute favorite series... I wait anxiously for each book to come out. It's sexy, action packed, the characters 'feel' real and the narrator takes you out of your life, and plants you in the book.... AWESOME!
I enjoy reading the series and how each book connects together as whole. However, I HATE the detached and unemotional reading of the narrator. Some of the writing within character dialogue is a little...off...to begin with, but this narrotor makes it sound lame and weird. I can't believe he was an "actor"...unless it was for a cheesy daytime soap and I wish he wasn't getting a cut of what I paid for it. I put up with it because I like the books and listen to them while i do insane amounts of driving for my job.
Can you say William Shatner lives in whoever edited this performance? Everytime I expected, and frankly NEEDED a pause, there wasn't even a breath, just mow it on through... It made the performance sound stilted at times, rushed at others.
Otherwise, another great installment in the series.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
For some reason I didn't think that I would like this book so much and I wanted to skip it. I am glad that I didn't I loved this book to me it was better than the last one. Rev who is part vamp and part sympath was a drug dealing pimp who dressed in fur duster and drove a Bentley protected those around him he killed his step father for years of beating his mother he also protected his sister never wanting her to find out that he was a sympathy. Ehlena who was a nurse at Haver's clinic was from a family of worth who had to work to pay for her father's med's and treatment for a mental disease who's health was stolen by his own family member. I loved Ehlena, who was strong and beautiful. The perfect match for Rehvenge who we learn in this book is very deserving of an awesome mate. This book was full of action and drama. First Wrath who was out fighting alone lying to Beth and losing his sight and how he deals with it. Second Tohr who realized that he had to somehow move on. Tohr finally saw what he did not only to John but how it effected the brothers as well. Third John who turned into a manwhore after having sex with Xhex he also starts drinking to cope with so much lost I really felt bad for him and I am looking forward to reading the next book. I really like Xhex although I didn't like what she did to John, but I understood why she did it her life hasn't been easy. The sympathy Queen was crazy and Lash was even crazier and I can't wait to read the next book to find out what John does to him. I am glad that Rev got his HEA and I was glad to see the all of the brother's were back together and I am looking forward to reading the next book.
I am a mom of 4 that loves loves loves my Megan, Colin, Joshua & Aiden baby.
The love story. That is why I keep buying these
John Matthew, he is sweet and had had such a hard life.
He does them all very well. I have no favorite
I will say again, I wish these vampires that are hundreds of years old did not talk like teenage thugs. It does not fit the characters.
This one was all kinds of wonderful! There was quite a bit going on throughout, not only with Rehvenge, but some significant turn of events involving Wrath especially. I don't think there was one minute of it where I wasn't fully engaged and loving how this story was unfolding. The cameos of Rehvenge in the earlier books peaked my interest in him, and his story is definitely one of my favorite BDBs so far. If I'm really honest, they're ALL my favorites. You simply can't go wrong with this series, it is truly one of the best in this genre, and totally credit worthy.
I love the series and each Audible book lets me enjoy the novels through listening as well as reading. I have the books in paperback and on my iPod as well. Jim Frangione is perfect as the narrator. These books are fun and exciting and if you like paranormal, profane, tough guys in your love stories you can't beat the Black Dagger series. Just start at the beginning because the stories evolve.
When the Blackdagger Brotherhood was recommended to me I thought I would not J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.like it, based on title alone. I couldn't be more wrong! I instantly fell in love with the books!
