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.

    "Love the Audi-book but...."

    Ok let me say that I really do love this book and having it on iPod rules...but let me be real and say that the Narrator is a little corny sounding. I mean its the WARDen. Her books need to have a little edge and Urban swag. I love the Narrator in certain parts of the read but others it had me cracking up. I will still buy them with him though because the books are just that good. Rhev is the man!!!

    "disappointed"

    Love the series but disappointed with this narrator. Have heard this narrator in other books and he just really is disappointing does not do the characters justice.
    Read the book instead. :( I am sure it will be much better.

    "Absolutely great!"

    I loved this story and the narrator, as usual, was great. Rhevenge always fascinated me as a character and his story did not disappoint. As usual with Ward's BDB books, the stories of the other characters continue also. Her writing is wonderful, though occasionally I wonder if there really are people who talk like the guys sometimes do. Her books are also a great bargain. I can listen to them over and over. No dull spots!

    I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.

    "A complex and exciting novel"

    I really enjoy the depth of this series. Sometimes it's a little bit of a challenge but that just adds to the depth of the novel. I have read reviews where readers are not thrilled about how a characters life turns out. That is the beauty of this series, they are not predictable.

    "Editing???"

    This was a really good book in the series. The reader is also very good, however, the editing of this book was very bad. Some sentences jerk together and the narrator's tone would change so drastically that it was down right annoying!! If not for that, I would have given the book 5 stars.

    "Love it"

    Thank you J.R. Ward for the Brotherhood series, I can't wait for the next book. I've been telling ladies at work to check them out, they've read S.M. books I know they'll love the Brotherhood. I'll keep an eye out for the Fallen Angel series starting next month. Thank you again Ms. Ward.

    "Lover Avenged"

    I loved this book, the rythm and content. What I didn't like so much is the narrator. His voice lacked nuances and expression, his tone was formal and pompous. In the formal parts of the book he shone, but in the humorous sections, there was a lack of irreverence needed to make the humor function,

    "Story aside, lets discuss sound quality"

    You can hear when the recording stops and restarts because the quality of the voice is different And most annoying is that pauses between passages and sentences are demolished by poor editing. It is like the narrator is talking over himself. The narrator is not to blame. He does a fine job. It is definitely the person mixing or editing the thing.

    Story is OK. I can break it down for you. Wrong guy and the perfect girl get together after a very brief and uncomplicated courtship. If you were hoping this was a romance book you would be mistaken. The romance obviously must bore the author because she spends very little time on them.

    "always worth waiting for"

    i have read all of j.r. wards books and was waiting for this one, it didn't disappoint, if you have read her other books you know that the story is not always about one main character, there are other side character that help round out the story. this is my first audio book though and the experience didn't disappoint either, it was well read and it was a very convienent way of reading a book! you could still imagine it in your head the same way. i very highly recommend the book and for a first time audio book reader i highly recommend the new way to read a book.
