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 realized I like the BDB books the most when all the characters are in it. When it focuses on one character without many other main ones getting involved (e.g. Phury's story), it's not as fun or interesting.
This book had all the character appear very frequently, and Rhevenge's story was very cool. Enjoyed.
In terms of narration, this is one of Frangione's better performance. However, the sound needs to be recut, as sometimes sentences start so quickly, they cut off the previous sentence.
The editing in this book is horrible! horrible! Horrible! I have not had any issues with the series (in Audible) until this book and I hope the rest of the books in the series are not like this. Horrible Editing!
I am an avid fan of audible. I have over 150 titles in my library. Kersey Cole is one of my favs
The Black Dagger Brotherhood books are very well written. I have listened to only four of them, but I plan on hearing them all.
I happened upon the Back Dagger novels by accident and had to go back and start from Novel One and work my way through. I love that J.R.Ward went outside the box and played with the whole how vampires exist sort of thing--creating their alternative world and way of life and weaving that into the realm of life among humans. It's pretty cool and while I sometimes cringe at the fact that everyone speaks in that same short hand, tough mannered way (including the women) that seems a small issue as I glean so much enjoyment from the individual stories of the Brothers and their mates (their back stories, etc.), how they're brought together, the complex relationships and the bonds that are formed. I'm coming to the end of Lover Avenged right now and I'm almost preening with excitement, because I've already guessed what the major plot-line of the next one is going to be. Lucky me that I don't have to wait and can jump right in as soon as The End sounds on my dvr. P.S. Jim Frangione is a perfect choice for these novels. He's not the best when it comes to accents and dialects, but mostly his performances are superb. It takes a special talent to indicate the opposite sex without sounding a little odd. He's one of the readers that does it without--it appears--effort. He was a great find for the Brotherhood novels.
Love this series. Great narrator. Great story line. A story that you will want to listen to over and over again.
I love this book from the BDB series. Love Rhev, made me cry, laugh and wish that Rhev was mine. Mmmm made me a fan or purple, and the description of his barb.. Mmm mm.. get in of it ladies and gents. All genders will enjoy
This is perhaps the most addictive series I've ever listened to. The books are pure escapism and worth every minute required to listen to them.
I've read them all, and this one is just as good as the others. The reader is perfect for this series.
Can't wait for #9.
This is on my top 3 J.R. Ward bests. Who knew Revenge was such a "male of worth"! I always saw him as the drug dealing jerk. Until... of course....Elena comes and rescues him. Overall, it was good. Also got a good view of the Sympath thing. Makes more sense with a lot of the stuff now.
I've listened to this book a couple times. Love it. Very hot and steamy. Although some of the language shocked me all thru this series. And very graphic killing scenes. Loved the whole series other than the last book. Kinda long and drug out.( last book in series).
