Number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward’s novels of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continue, as a vampire warrior crosses the line between life and death…and ventures into an erotic world of dark dreams and darker desires.
Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy.
When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquility of the Fade - he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. But because Lassiter tells him he must learn to love another to free his former mate, Tohr knows they are all doomed....
Except then a female with a shadowed history begins to get through to him. Against the backdrop of the raging war with the lessers, and with a new clan of vampires vying for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between the buried past and a very hot, passion-filled future.…But can his heart let go and set all of them free?

The storyline between the main characters was really weak and close to pathetic. This is by far the worst book in the series. I think my love affair with the brotherhood have come to a sad end.
Anything to take the bad taste out of my mouth from this book.
As always Jim did a great job in his performance, it's just too bad the story was lacking.
J.R. is one of my favorite writers, but I see the direction in her storyline going in the opposite direction of what I want to read.
I love the narrator for this series, Jim Frangione. He nails the vibe of the story and the characters every single time.
I've been waiting for Tohr's story since his shellan was killed by a Lesser. He's a male of worth, and deserves his HEA.
Jim's narration really brings the story to life for me, in a way that I would never capture if I were reading the book. I will continue to enjoy this series in audiobook as long as Jim narrates, and I hope that never ends. He's brought me to tears, and made me howl with laughter.
When Tohr went through the house he lived in with Wellsie, it was so emotional. Looking at all the things she loved, everything as it had been on the day she died. Very sad, and my heart broke for him.
Overall the book wasn't bad but it just didn't have that great drama that I loved about Wards books through Lover Mine. I've heard others say that it feels like a transition book. I agree but then again I thought the same thing about the last book. Payne's story underwhelmed me and I was ready for hard hitting emotions and BDB fighting. Tor and Autumn's story was painful, painful, painful and then just not much. The real love story here was Thor and Wellsey and what he was prepared to do send her into the Fade. Lassiter and his journey out of the Fade was funny and poignant. Autumn was just kind of there as a prop. However, I will say the Autumn and Xhex scenes were quite good.
JM and Xhex storyline wasn't bad but it seemed a little quick off the draw to start with the problems. Then they don't really communicate for months and finally JM has a revelation. Eh, whatever...
Tor and Wrath.. I thought this friendship was well portrayed. It really gave us more insight into the relationship the king has with his oldest friend. Very well done.
Blay and Quinn...they only had a few scenes but I must say they packed one of the most powerful emotional moments of the book for me. Layla and Quinn didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. Kind of anticlimactic at this point in the series. Ward's been telegraphing that one for several books.
At least we got a little more of the humor of the BDB back. But we still need more of the wives although it was better this time. Doc Jane and Marissa but where is everybody else. Has Mary disappeared off the planet? Elena scurries out of the OR every once in a while but has no meaningful dialogue.
The BOB are promising as well as the drug dealer. Lessers are just background noise without the Omega. I keep waiting for him to show back up.
For me the real test of a book is whether I want to read it again. I finished this book about 3 weeks ago and really haven't had the desire to pick it up since. Read it, moving on and hope the next one is better.
From the audible perspective, I love Jim's narration. He's the voices I hear when I actually read these books. He's just amazing.
Please hurry with the next one jr ward. I get so excited when a new book is released u r a master at putting feelings and emotions on paper absolutely amazing!
The contiuation of the series. JR Ward is totally awesome author & the BDB series shows this.
When Autumn was returned to Torh
When quinn & John Mathew was at the coffee shop place
It will do both
Love all of JR Ward books. You are totally missing out if you pass up the BDB books
I love audiobooks!
I really love all JR Ward's books, but also enjoy this narrator as well.
There are so many in this genre, other authors in the genre include Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lora Leigh, etc. Hoping to see Laurann Dohner's work on audio soon as well.
This was just as good as his previous. He's a perfect fit for her work.
Recommend this book and the entire series. They are great. Yes I will listen to it again. I have the other books in the series. What makes this series so terrific is that there are multiple stories are going on at the same time. The characters are wonderful mesh of good and bad and the story is full of twists and surprises
Absolute love this series. Lover Reborn doesn't disappoint. It's complex and wonderful. I love all of J.R. Ward's novels.
No one and I mean NO ONE can top Jim Frangione's narration. I'm in love with his voice!
This is one of the best in the BDB series!
The next book in the BDB series
Exponentially yes. I really feel like I may deserve my money back since the ending was rushed and sloppy. There were so many story lines left undone and the Lovers Reborn was built up and then over with no great fan fare.
I have been waiting for this book since Wellsie died. Tohr broke my heart. NoOne broke my heart. JM broke my heart. Qhuinn and Blay broke my heart. I cried more than I wanted but loved it! I love this series, I love the narrator, and I love J. R. Ward!
Believer in what you can't see
YES, YES, YES.
This book stands on its own. I love this series, but with all the twist and turns in this storyline I couldn't stop listening to it. Of course it has a very suspenseful ending.
Jim Frangione is always fantastic and he makes this series. In fact, Jim Frangione is one of the reasons I look forward to getting another audiobook in this series.
I tried but could only do it if I didn't go to work or sleep
This is a great series.
