Publisher's Summary

Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    "Great story, poor narration"

    I am really enjoying this series. If you enjoy adult paranormal novels, particularly "good" vampires, definitely give these books a chance.

    Narration: Similar to the first book in the series, with the exception of Fritz, I can't distinguish character voices whatsoever. I have to use the context of the sentence or rely on the author hopefully starting a sentence with a character's name.

    "BOOK GREAT NARRATOR NOT"

    I have read and reread all the books many times and wanted to try this one in audio because it is my favorite but to my dismay the voice did not fit in with any of the books cast.
    It was much to monotone and Mary sounded more winey than gunmetal gray eyes brave.

    "Really Enjoyed This Book"

    I read the first novel in this series, Dark Lover, in print form and thought the book was just good. But this one was even better! The narrator did a great job bringing this tory to life. I liked the main characters in this book. Mary was a sympathetic heroine, her illness adding to the emotion of the story. And Rhage, while he was a typical alpha hero, dominant, larger than life, he also showed a vulnerability that brought depth to his character. Sometimes I don't like the love at first sight type of romance, but this one worked. Their romance is fully fleshed out, at times heart wrenching and at other times passionate and thrilling. The book is a good mix of romance and action/suspense. The battle with the Lessers continues and a new Brother, John Matthew, is introduced. I look forward to reading the next book in this series!

    "Outstanding.!"
    Where does Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Again ward takes you into the black dagger brotherhoods world head first. This has been my favorite so far, can't wait to read/ hear the next book. I am however, getting use to the narrator. He is mild and almost mono tone at times but it becomes a soothing voice over time I think. GREAT BOOK, MUST READ.

    Story
    "Rhage On"

    Rhage is the perfect example of us thinking the grass is greener on other side. Women are so taken in by is looks that no one knows his torment. He doesn't even meet Mary so much as he hears her voice first and she soothes him and his beast. I think we found out more about Mary then Rhage, we don't know anything about where he came from or how he joined the Brotherhood. He is the dream man though he sees Marys inner beauty and could care less how her sweater fits. She is beautiful to him. I was a little surprised how Mary didn't really follow up with John Matthew after she brings them to meet the Brothers.

    "Hot & nicely done."

    Still enjoying this series and looking forward to continuing to listen to them.

    Despite what some have said in their reviews, I enjoy Jim Frangione's narration. I'm finding, oddly to me, that I like male voices narrating romance novels. It's not something I'd have thought I'd enjoy.

    Rhage is the topic of this book. When he gets mad, his demon takes over and... it's not pretty. So, the book was good in general, the plot was good, etc. The best part, though, is when Mary meets Rhage's beast and totally tames him, bringing Rhage back to sanity and accepting him as he is, ugly beast parts and all. It's very touching and really puts this book over the top as a definite must read.

    Story
    "I have to finish a semi-decent series"

    As I listened to these books I remembered why I don't like romance as a genre generally. The frequent sex scenes are unrealistic, the men are generally jealous and semi-barbaric, which is explained away in this series because it's part of their vampire nature. I actually thought the story line of the Brothers isn't that horrible, but the constant "What's doin?" and "You feel me?" started to drive me nuts.

    The women are insecure and co-dependent, or just ignorant most of the time. I liked the story of Rhage and his curse, but the Sacred Scribe/Virgin? is a flat out witch, more like the short sited, emotional Gods of Olympus than a holy being. With her for an ally when the omega is just creating beings to fight the vampires, I can't figure out what else they're for, everyone is pretty much screwed. Life is a battle and the women were created to be docile cows, and of course the sex is frickin' life changing. Women remain virgins in this series for 300 yrs? That is of course because that is the ultimate gift.

    It's a medieval society functioning in the modern day with horrible grammar and unlimited money. I finished the series and actually enjoyed some of the stories with characters I liked and disliked, but with the grammatical irritants, and the frequent disagreements between the men and women, generally because the males are possessive chauvinists, who can't see anybody else's point of view but their own, I found myself getting repetitively frustrated and/or irritated. I don't know why I keep reading series that I just "sort of" like when there are so many books I love. Every one of the relationships in the rest of the series are dysfunctional, conflict then wonderful sex. Ugh. (I guess I keep reading so I can find out what happens to everyone else, and it makes my life seem so good in comparison, free of a whiny, clingy partner.)

    I love the Classic novels and most anything based in the nineteenth century.

    Story
    "Eternal lover"
    Would you try another book from J.R. Ward and/or Jim Frangione?

    Probably not


    Would you recommend Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes but with a different narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The entire book was monotone. I almost didn't finish it. I wanted to know how it ended so forced myself to finish the book.
    It was hard to distinguish which character was talking, even from male to females..

    Story
    "Needed More Action and less Erections"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    way to much sex. Did like the relationship parts.


    Has Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    greatly diminished it.


    What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    not sure, but I did enjoy his narration


    Did Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 inspire you to do anything?

    did cause me to try showing more respect/reverence to my wife.


    Any additional comments?

    i really liked the story line, relationships and action in book one. i weathered through the sex parts. But book 2 really stepped up the sex. I did like the action, the relationships, and story line. I do realize that this was written for Women. Thought I'd give a male perspective.
