Publisher's Summary

J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood novels have introduced readers to a "different, creative, dark, violent, and flat-out amazing" (All About Romance) world.

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.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Never a bad BDB"

    Okay you just have to face the fact that in this series there's no bad book. This is a fantstic series. It's my FAVORITE series and I have to come back and re-visit it. It's so great that I now have it on Audible. I love every character and of course what girl wouldn't want her own??? So even though I've read them many times before, now I'll be listening, again and again........ after all some stories are just that good.

    "As good as the others, but, the EDITING!! Geez!"

    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.

    "Rehvenge!!! Excellent!"

    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.

    "Awesome series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely - just read the series in order... each book tends to build on the other.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    Jim is great!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Like the books...HATE the narrator!"

    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.

    "Fantastic book."

    Just as the rest of the books in this series, Lover Avenged is fantastic. I also just finished reading Lover Mine and it was fantastic as well. Totally reccomend this series.

    "J.R. Ward is a wonderful story teller!!"
    What did you love best about Lover Avenged?

    I haven't reviewed any of the other books because after each one i am in love with the male lead. This one was about Revenge and i ended up totally falling for him as well. Messed up as he was i wanted to belong to him by the end.

    J.R. Ward has a way of creating a true person from each of her characters. Never brushing over anything or leaving any dark places. Her mirror is uncovered and the lights are on! Naked and unashamed! i really appreciate those kinds of REAL characters.

    Even the homo-errotiscism is okay with me. it is REAL! Intricate and developed beings that can live for a thousand years would indeed be attracted to and love BOTH sexes! It is their souls and not their bodies that we are discovering in each of the BDB books and it is because of the authors ability to show us their souls that i am in love with all of them!

    I can't listen back to back to these books however. They are much more emotional than allot of other stuff i tend to listen too and i often find myself tearing up and crying. But i am working my way through them all and am near the end. i will start her fallen angel collection next.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    I love his smooth voice and easy delivery. I do wish for more distinction between the characters and voices. Wish for a few more accents thrown in there. Not to be that kind of person but here goes; i can only imagine how great these books would be if Robert Petkoff had narrated them??

    But Mr. Frangione is becoming a comfortable friend in my ears and i am glad for the continuity throughout the entire series. I always look before starting a new series and if the narrator changes more than once i usually won't start. So, i am grateful for that continuity.

    "I knew I was going to LOVE Rehvenge's story!!"
    Where does Lover Avenged rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the BDB series, It would be #7 for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rehvenge....because he is so multi-dimensional. So many layers to his story and personality.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His first night with Ehlena


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole rescue and the way Ehlena took care of Rehvenge


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I enjoyed getting to know more about John and Xhex too, left me definitely excited to read their story.

    "Jam Packed!!!"

    So much happened in this book there is no way to give a full review on it without a bunch of spoilers. So all I'm going to say is 1st , always be prepared for the unexpected. 2nd, strong love can overcome any obstacle or misunderstanding. 3rd never be surprised by the loyalty of your friends. 4th you can do or overcome anything you set your will to and lastly JR Ward is an amazing author and this series is the bomb!!!!!!
