Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male's loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested - and his dangerous mixed blood revealed.

As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world: Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him - and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.
One of my favorites. The narrator is great. I always enjoy the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.
This book is another great addition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood saga. Just when you think the story has peaked Ward goes and adds in a sequel that had you clutching you audio device waiting for the events to unfold. One thing that hindered the experience for me though was the narration.Usually giving a great performance this time around the narration sounded as though two different people were telling the story but not like a duo. At time half of a chapter was in one pitch then after a pause it would be in a completely different one. Speaking of pauses, the breaks in between what I'm assuming we're pages were almost non existent. It sounded as if the narrator pauses after a break, reminded a bit then started the next bit of story on top of the last jumbling words together so it was not a cohesive listen or sometime cutting of the ending of a line all together. Maybe I just received a bad copy of the audiobook and that was the reason for the hit in quality. At least that is what I'm hoping, as this has not happened before, and I am knee deep in the series and am looking forward to the next book and another great experience.
if you are not a fan of BDH..start now. amazing series. narrator is fantastic. this story is about
Elaina and Revenge coming together and tje start of John Mathrews love for Xsex...good read.
I liked this installment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood saga. It's Ravenge's story and about what you'd expect at this point if you've read the previous books.
The editing leaves something to be desired. Listening to this audiobook was painful. The narrator's performance of the book was fine as always. The editing seemed to be poorly done. The reading of this book does not flow smoothly. It cuts in and out abruptly and the volume level of the voice of the narrator changes abruptly as well. It's like they edited different audio files recorded at different times, just chopped them up and stuck them together without paying any attention to how it sounded. I know that's how audiobooks are usually produced but whoever did it this time doesn't seem to know what they're doing. This is one of the worst editing jobs I've listened to. It was not pleasant.
The book was amazing but the narrator sucked! There weren't any distinction between characters which bugged me and it made it hard to know what character was talking. Other than that, it was amazing! Can't wait to read Lover Mine!
I could hardly put this down. I took the phone to the bathroom with me as a matter of fact. Ward did a great job of weaving themed into the story, as she did with vision in this one. The sexual scenes didn't seem as heavy as in previous but you didn't care because the passion, angst and love for the characters were so strong. I loved it so much. Can't wait for my next credit!!
The Ward is the best- in my opinion no one comes close in this genre. Narration is perfection.
book kept skipping forward at random moments. the content is still great but I don't know if it was the way the book downloaded or if it was just kind of off.
I have never wanted to slap a heroine more in my life. So obviously, I got into the story. My only complaint is that the editing cut off phrases a lot. It makes the recording sound like a cd that is skipping. I will choose to believe that I am not missing anything, but it is disconcerting.
I can't say much about this story aside from it is pretty much the same as any other black dagger story. It's nit quite garbage but it still kinda stinks. the narration on the other hand was lazy. all the male characters sounded the same and all the female characters just sounded a bit softer than the male but still the same. I'd avoid this narrator.
