Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Only 23 hrs, that's it?"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Reborn the most enjoyable?

    Jim and the expectation of what comes next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    oh my, as soon as I met V he was mine, and if he weren't mentioned I would be upset. That said, in this book as I get to know Xcore a little and start to understand him, I like him more. He's is letting go of who he thought he was and learning who is really is. I like that.


    What about Jim Frangione???s performance did you like?

    All of it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The in between, where will it find you.


    Any additional comments?

    More please.

    "One Word "Love"."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definately. This book has action, romance, drama, and a few twist that will blow you away.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The introduction of new characters in the story.


    What about Jim Frangione???s performance did you like?

    As always he does an excellent job. He is so in tune with the characters.


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

    Oh yes, you won't want to put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    The two main characters come full circle in thier own greiving process. You are able to connect with them. This book shows so many different types of love for one another. To me this oneis the best the series thus far.

    "I need to walk away."


    I thought this book would never end. I found myself ffwd through certain parts. These books don't get me all excited the way that they use to; I use to be alil obsessed over this series but not anymore. I think Ima save my credit and get my library to order LaL on audio for me.
    She really had it in for Tohr, huh. The only thing that I liked about this book was the look that Qhuinn gave Blay, when he was thinkin about their future. Oh, and when Lassiter was in Tohr's room and Tohrs hands were not visible, I lmao. Love Lassiter. I could not stand that Soap Opera that was playin out between Xhex and John. Xhex was ready to burn her bras and shit, and I am woman her me roar.(wait she probably doesn't wear bras) The guys were just lookin out for her, but anyways. I'd like to see Lassiter get a love interest, but I'd like to see a lot of things happen in these books. I hope LaL is better than this one.
    And she trys waaayyy to hard with the slang, and with tryin to make the brothers cool.(yawn)2/28/13

    "Just not making enough progress"

    I keep thinking I'm done with this series, then I get hurried & bored and make another impulse buy. I have two main gripes. 1) Each new book is presumably about a new couple, but it's really not. It's half a new story and the other half of the prior characters' story from the previous book--which is how she keeps you on the hook. You're always only half way through someone else's story. You must read the next book to really get that sense of completion, but then you get sucked in to a new story that starts to get told. 2) I could probably live with that sneaky device, but the over-arching story just isn't progressing fast enough for me. Getting bored with the Lessers? No problem, we'll just create a new group to battle. These BDB dudes are stuck on a hamster wheel and don't even know it. Other minor issues: The Brotherhood lingo. It grates after a while. You dig? Sitch instead of situation. Natch instead of naturally. It's a weird "combo" of shortened words and 70's Mod Squad-like turns of phrases. Groovy. Also, I guess I'm the lone dissenter, but I'm not a fan of the narrator. He does a lot of quick inhalations that distract me, and the biggest distraction is he likes to emphasize the vowel sounds of most single syllable words. Who knew variations of the word "ease" could used so many times in one book, except it's not "ease," it's, "eeeeeaaaasse."

    "Not the best of the bunch."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    most all the BDB lovers will listen, but what will they think?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not another vampire book...


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I love the BDB books, this fell short. It almost rambled too long without getting to the meat of the story.

    "J.R. Ward keeps me guessing and up all night"
    Would you listen to Lover Reborn again? Why?

    I have listened to all the black dagger brotherhood books twice and I find that JR Ward leaves me with just enough at the end of each book to makes antsy for the next book.Her books always grab me from the beginning and I am hooked until the last paige wanting moor.


    What other book might you compare Lover Reborn to and why?

    My interest in the subject matter is already there. I have all of Chris Feehan's Dark series and I really wish she would write more.


    What about Jim Frangione???s performance did you like?

    His performance let me shut my eyes and use my imagination to be there, It is like old time radio shows.


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

    I did not want to put the book down, but I had to sleep and do other things as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I really do not wish for Jr Ward to rush her next book because she does such a good writer but I am waiting with baited breath for the next book

    "Great Story Including More on Other Characters!"

    The story is mainly about Torment's journey through grief - but the story also touches on several other established relationships as well as some newer ones. Being a big BDB fan, it was great to see interactions with other characters I have grown to love throughout the series. The first few books in the series mainly focused on one relationship - but this continues to draw you into the BDB "family" and keep tabs on the goings on.

    I have read some reviews that this book was disappointing because there wasn't much in the romance department. Personally, I don't feel liked I missed out on anything. In fact, I feel like it was one of the books I enjoyed the most - mainly because we got to know more about other brothers and those involved in their lives in some way.

    The book ended on kind of a cliffhanger of sorts - I'm not going to say what so it won't be given away - but I have questions and wonderings on what will happen with certain people. Needless to say, I can't wait for the next book!
