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.

    "One of my favorites so far!"

    This is the longest BDB books at about 24 hours and it was hard to put down my earphones for any of it. I think this is one of the best books so far closely tied with #3 Lover Awakened (Zhadist/Bella) and #4 Lover Revealed (Butch/Marissa). I thought this installment was emotionally deeper then the last couple of books or maybe I just had a hard time liking Phury and/or relating to Vishous. This book is about Rehvenge and Ehlena and had alot of twists and turns as they all do but I felt more empathy for these two characters. This book also delved a little more into John and Zhex and there was quite a bit about Wrath and Beth too. I can't wait for the next book, Lover Mine due out in April 2010. If you haven't read this series you need to start at the beginning with Dark Lover and work your way forward, its a series you shouldn't skip around in as one leads to another. They are very darkly emotionally and highly sexual in nature.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "Another success for JR Ward!!"

    I read the book first and thought it was amazing! So much takes place in this book. It includes things about all of the brothers and Lash the head of the lessers is so complex. I love how she doesn't just write about the main character but all of them! I can't wait for her next book because at the end of this one you wish you could just keep going! I had to get used to the narrator but after listening to the other books in this series I'm getting used to him. This story is tied with the 3rd book about Zadist for my favorite. Definately worth every cent or credit!!

    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.

    "Fabulous..."

    the last book in the series of the "Black Dagger Brotherhood" by JR Ward, was by far one of my favorites, I loved Rehvenge, his passion, his desires all balled up in a amazing story, I so did not want it to end.... I have all 7 audio books and see myself re-listening to them over again.

    "Terrific book of the series, terrific narrator"

    J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood is one of the best of the paranormal romance series. Lover Avenged is a solid book. She managed to turn a drug lord, pimp and murderer into a sympathetic romantic lead with her touching dialogue and interaction between Ehlena and Rehv. There are also two side stories of the other two Brothers weaved in. Jim Frangione's narration added a contemporary mood to this urban fantasy/romance. Highly recommended for lovers of paranormal romance or urban fantasy.

    "Irony: the sympath puts feeling back in the story"

    Leave it to the sympath to put the heart back into this series. Like many others I was disappointed with the last couple of entries in the BDB series. Those novels missed the heart that was so much a part of the first few books and made them compelling listens/reads. I was leary of using a credit for this story, since it was the longest in length up to its entry in the series, and quite frankly, I had checked out of V's and Phury's story so many times while listening, I put off the purchase for a while.
    However, I am really glad I bought back in to the series. This story takes us back to the fast paced nature and emotional depth that made the story believable in the first few novels. I will get the next one because JM is one of my favorite characters, and I hope Ms Ward sticks with the basics in that one as well.

    "Amazing Storylines Intertwined!!!"

    If you are a J R Ward fan this is another excellent installment in the Brotherhood Series (Book 7). Ward's storyline is unique and fresh as always with some amazing complex storylines all being developed at once. This is Rehvenge & Ehlena's story and is full of developments that leave you wanting more, more, more!!! Can hardly wait for John's story which is next! If you have not experienced J R Ward's vampire world I highly recommend each and every installment of this series. I really like the narrator even though there is not much difference between female and male voices...I hope he continues with the series...have purchased each and every title in series, all are amazing, well worth the credit.
