"The hottest collection of studs in romance" (New York Times best-selling author Angela Knight) returns as number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward brings together two of the most beloved people in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world - at last....
Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....
Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it's about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young - just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It's hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he's learned firsthand.
Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions...but as the battle over the race's throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together...finally become one.

Loving my life and hanging out with my four grandchildren!
I rank the J. R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood series as some of the best audio books you can own! I love each and every story in the series and can't wait to hear what happens next! I would rank these books at the top of my list for "re-listen"!
It is so hard to pick just one character as my favorite, but if I really have to choose it would be King Wrath! In each and every book he has been a powerful, strong, driving force to the brothers. But if you really get into the books, you will find yourself pulling for each and every brother in the series. Even the supporting characters find a place in your heart.
Always Wrath! His voice seems to come to life when he reads as the king.
I have to admit. I didn't know how I would feel listening to the love scenes between two men. Ms. Ward did an excellent job with all the love scenes, and I found myself wanting these two, ( Qhuinn & Blaylock), to get together. The other part that got to me was when Layla goes out to the meadow and Xcor comes to see her. I am hoping he can somehow get out of the wrong side of life and get together with Layla.
If you buy these books, start from the first book and work your way through. They are well worth the price and will not disappoint you in any way!
I appreciate how J.R. Ward incorporated new characters and they all have a meaning and a part to add to the story line in a way that makes sense. I can't wait to find out what happens with Asale and Sola! What happens to Luke, and Leila, Trez and Selena! I really hope there is a book 12 and that is comes out soon!
Live To Read!!!
Since reading the book, I have listened to it 3 times! Growth is growth and love is love. For me this story has it all. Admittedly, I was somewhat apprehensive about guy on guy action, but all of that is second or maybe third to the story. Ward does a great job of making you want to see these two come together.
The best about this story is how Ward weaves the main story with the inter mingling's of the stories of the others. She has a way of keeping you informed that life is happening around the main character story.
I like Jim Frangione's performance. For me, his voice seems well suited for this series.
Ward makes you laugh and cry and cheer. A miracle happens and a strong love blooms.
While you can understand the book without reading the entire series. . . its oh so much better to read the series from the beginning. It allows you to grow with the brotherhood as they grow and evolve.
Love reading! Always have, glad my friend turn me on to audible. Love romance and mystery books
Wish there was a follow up book, just to follow up on all the characters. I think another one is coming out. These vampires are hot!
When it comes to books, I don't think fiction always as to be fiction, especially in the grip of a gifted writer.
I don't think I have the words. There isn't another series out that truly compares to this one. It's an epic saga dream for the paranormal fan … and it really is EPIC! This edition (book 11) was worth every one of the seconds I watched the clock tick down until it was available. I'm sure I would have paid twice as much. Blay and Qhuinn FINALLY! If you had to stop and read this before hitting download, you my friend are going to need a plan! I suggest… count your money, get a full nights rest, then download book 1. You might as well be prepared to glue your ear buds in. I advise you to pace yourself, because you will not want it to end…. even eleven books later.
By the time I got to the 11th book in this series it felt like all the Brothers were good friends and my emotional attachments to them made this one of the most enjoyable book in the series.
I'm going to go with the obvious, Quinn. Especially because he save the life of my favorite Brother.
He did the whole series and I think he was an excellent choice. He, like the author, keep it pretty consistent.
First time in all my life I ever got hot over a male on male sex scene. Maybe it is because this love affair had been building for several books. Truthfully all the books in this series made me laugh and cry.
Such a great series and so well written. The writing style is fresh and different for this genre, she has a real solid point of view and every character is super cool. You know I can't say that every series that I have read, by whoever, continually puts out a good product after 11 books but I can surely say this about The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
My personal belief is the book is way too long, story line since beginning of series has bogged down with the last 3 books.As far as the sex, way too much description of each and every act by the consenting partners no matter if is male with male or male with female. Give me a break, this is a adult series and as such we don't have to read about each and every movement or breath a human body makes during intimate relationships, please enough is enough.The narrator is wonderful hope he is never replaced. Will give the next book in the series a try, but should it follow along the same footsteps as this book it will be the end of the line for me with this series.
Way less sex, fewer story lines and more development of the story which deals with the many problems the brothers are facing that threatens their race.
Yes. Never disappointed by his performance.
Too many to list.
I have been following this series since the beginning. I have been rooting for Blay and Quinn for quite sometime. I spent have the book yelling in my head at the characters and the rest laughing. I don't want to say that the book was funny because it wasn't. It was just the giggling little girl thing. I loved this book and if you like this series you will love this book. my only question is... What happens next.
When the Blackdagger Brotherhood was recommended to me I thought I would not J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.like it, based on title alone. I couldn't be more wrong! I instantly fell in love with the books!
