    Story
    "Love is the strangest thing"
    What did you love best about Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2?

    Everything, I love the whole plot between Rhage and Mary. I love how Rhage learns to care about Mary and sacrifice all he could so that she would live even if it would mean she would never know him again. LOVE THIS STORY. MY FAVORITE IN THE SERIES.


    What other book might you compare Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 to and why?

    The only one that I like as much as this one was Lover Unbound. I find the devotion between the brothers and their human lovers both wonderful and heart wrenching. Both brothers had to find that woman that soften their hearts and allowed them to think about someone else.


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

    The power and the strength behind the brothers lives. You hear the mannerisms and the attitudes of each of the characters. Frangione brings life to the stories, but the stories can stand alone too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but because J.R.Ward has so much to say it is impossible to hear the audiobook in one session.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the second Vampire series that I feel in love with, right after the Dark Series written by Christine Feehan. This series is on the serious side. It has its humor, but some of the storylines can get pretty deep and disturbing.

    Story
    "A Good Read"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 the most enjoyable?

    This second installment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood was richer and even more interesting then the first book. In fact I liked it better than the first. Rhage is cursed by the Scribe Virgin to turn into a dragon/godzilla like creature when he gets to worked up. It was intended to teach him to control himself. The beast made things really interesting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2?

    The most memorable moment for me in the book was Mary running to Rhage and finally admitting she wasn't okay instead of trying to keep up the fascade that she was in control and handling everything on her own.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator mispronounced quite a few words. The one that irritates me most is rifled. I do like his voice however because it is easy to listen to so much can be forgiven.


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

    The most moving part of the book was when Rhage kissed and touched all the scars from the various procedures Mary had because of her previous bout of luekemia. She is one battlescarred and tough lady to have endured what she has.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my favorite books in the series. I have read all of them in paperback and now I'm going back and buying my favorites in audible so I can listen to them on my smart phone while I walk.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What other book might you compare Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 to and why?

    There is no comparison to this book other than the other BDB books.

    I really related to Mary.


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

    The moment that moved me was the end when Mary was given eternal life.

    "I tried"

    I seem to be the only one of all my friends who do not love these books more than life itself. I am not sure why, but I am just not falling for any of these guys. I am giving up.

    "Start with Book 2 and skip Book 1"

    My advice is to skip Book 1 in this series and start with Book 2 instead. You really won't miss that much and Book 1 is a bit weak and juvenile. But Book 2 will get you hooked and then you'll love the entire series. Great narrator too.

    Story
    "A "campy" diversion!"

    This story starts off fine, but becomes lazy and disjointed halfway through. I began to feel like I was listening to the writer's notes strung together to haphazardly extend the story. It recovers by the end so all in all, this one was just, OK.
    The series is fun and I highly recommend it for a "campy" diversion that can be listened to in mixed company. I like listening to the BDB Series because in a lot of ways they remind me of the "campiness" of the once popular 60's television show "Batman". (So "silly" but I just couldn't stop watching it). Regarding the narration: Jim Frangione's dry dispassionate reading has a way of "growing" on you. He is not as distracting as some narrators of other books, but he certainly does not inspire the raw "sexiness" I think the stories hold. Listening to him is like listening to the character Jack from the once popular detective show "Dragnet." I think if you can get this one on sale, it is worth the listen.

    "Emotional roller coaster"

    It made me laugh, cry and. Get down right angry, but I could not stop listening. Rage is a brother of worth, true.
