They kept me prisoner for four years, using me for my predictions. They thought they had me subdued, meekly following orders, but they were wrong. I was waiting for a chance to run. I had to be careful, though. They had my brothers, and the leader wasn't exactly human.

I love these books and that there are companion stories of the same books written from the male lead's perspective. I am so getting all of them!

Cassandra should have been killed at birth, like all the other children who have powers like her. The changed ones. The ones who started the war, lost the seas, and killed millions with their gifts. Lucky for Cassandra, her father is on the council. One of the seven rulers of her large town and has kept her hidden her entire life. When she is seen for the first time, she has no choice but to run, and the only place she can go is to the sea.

I bought this on a whim thinking it sounded interesting and unique, and who doesn't love a good pirate tale? It was far better than I could've hoped for. I can't wait to get the 2nd one!

As always with her novels, J.R. Ward(en) has made me laugh, cry and cheer to the point of funny looks from my husband while reading this. BDB and BDL are my all-time favorite series. Keep writing and I will forever keep reading these spectacular books. Much love Warden. And thank you.

Anything in the BDB universe is a treat and a treasure. I love every one of the books I've read or listened to, which is every BDB book, Dearest Ivie and now Blood Kiss. I'm about to read Blood Vow and I absolutely can't wait to see what happens next. Thank you, WARDen. Please, never stop writing!! Much love from this major fan.

If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.

This could habe been a very interesting story, but is a little immature and has too much sex to be called a romance, and rhey fall in love because they have sex. That's not how romance works. You don't fall in love because of sex, good sex comes when you are in love amd well suited together. Then she tried to deny she's in love when he says it to her because they "hardly know each other". And what person on Earth doesn't know what going into heat means? It's an erotica masquerading as romance and what could have been a very good story. You want an amazing adult vampire romance series? Read the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. Want a great YA vampire romance series? Read Vampire Acadamy by Richelle Mead. Both have action, romance, drama and an amazing story.

Gabby's brain is like a human fish finder. It comes in handy when she wants to avoid people. Mostly men. They seem to like her a bit too much. It's lonely being different, but she's adapted to it. Really. She just wishes she knew why she is different, though. In her search for answers, she discovers a hidden community of werewolves. She immerses herself in their culture, learning about their world until she meets Clay. He's unkempt, prone to mood swings, and intense without saying a word, and he thinks Gabby is his.

Listening to Wyn and Ilian's recounting of everything that had happened in the previous book from their perspectives was amazing and interesting. I had hoped to hear more the the story itself, but it was enlightening to hear it come from them, what they went through and secrets from Wyn's past revealed.... Incredible. She is more formidable than even she knew!
