Publisher's Summary

In this heart-pounding installment in J.R. Ward’s number one New York Times best-selling series, a long-lost member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood finds true love - and evil incarnate - in Caldwell, New York. 

Sahvage has been living under the radar for centuries - and he has every intention of of staying “dead and buried”. But when a civilian female sucks him into her dangerous battle with an evil as ancient as time, his protective side overrides his common sense.

Mae has lost everything, and desperation sets her on a collision course with fate. Determined to reverse a tragedy, she goes where mortals should fear to tread - and comes face-to-face with the Brotherhood’s new enemy. She also discovers a love she never expected to find with Sahvage, but there can be no future for them.

Knowing they will part, the two band together to fight against what Mae unknowingly unleashed - as the Brotherhood closes in to reclaim one of their damned, and evil vows to destroy them all....

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

I don't think I will ever get tired of this series. I love that even though we are meeting so many new people the Brothers are still pretty prominent in these series. Everything about this book left me wanting more. The ending sets up a few new story lines and one that people have been waiting for!

I will admit I was a little lost in the beginning because I didn't remember a lot of details from the last book so I was confused by a few characters but it didn't affect my enjoyment of this book. I was so excited about Sahvage, even though I had no idea who he was I still got so many answers from previous books (Coffins?). I always wondered about what happened to all the brothers from the "old country" and we get a few answers on that too!

Jim Frangione is perfect as always for the Brotherhood!

She's Done it Again, and I'm Screaming!

It feels like I've waited decades for Lover Unveiled, and it did not disappoint! I associate Jim Frangione's voice with each of these wonderful BDB characters, so it would have broken my heart had another narrator read this latest installment. Jim did his usual, incredible performance, bringing all my fav characters to life. Yes, you'll get to experience Wrath, Vishous, Rhage, and many others again as you meet the latest brother, Sahvage. The climatic ending is going to thrill you and frustrate you as Ward sets up future storylines that you want right now!
Speaking of Ward, please excuse me while I address her. Please oh great one, the writer known as J. R. Ward, I am begging you, please don't make us wait another year for Lassiter's story! I can't take it!
Ok, back to you, the prospective buyer. I realize my pitiful review has given no summary, no great literary critique, but come on! It's J. R. Ward. It's the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Do you really need my opinion to help you decide? Buy it, read it, and hold on for a wild, wild ride!

Disjointed

Comparing this work to that of other authors, it’s wonderful. Comparing it to others in the series, it was disappointing. Mae - ugh. I really want to like her but it’s a struggle. I’m finding it hard to understand why anyone would even like her, let alone fall in love with her.

I have to say, though, that J. R. Ward is a brilliant writer. I set alarms for her book release dates. Black Dagger Brotherhood is in my top 5 series. Don’t judge the series by this book. :)

I never thought I would say this, but...

The anticipation leading up to this book has felt like an eternity. I love the BDB books more than any series I have ever read. This was very disappointing. I did not connect with this book on any level. It was all over the place for me.

Hard, at times

I liked this story as I have many others by JR Ward. There are less than 5 new characters. And you don't have to know all the usual folk, though it helps. But I have to make a few comments about this one in hopes that somehow, in some way, she will get this message or someone else who also needs to hear and heed it.
On the long and treacherous fight to be seen and treated as equally, just EQUALLY human, the least anyone can do, especially an author in current times, is stop using "black" for all things negative and evil. And, specifically, as much as author Ward appropriates from black culture in her books (ex. lingo, language), the absolutely least she can do is stop perpetuating the centuries-old view that "black" = evil and bad. Please.

Torn

I always love the BDB books . I really like this story line the plot was awesome as usual for a BDB book. Im a bit disappointed in our heroin though. i truly disliked her from the word go i tried really hard to see her side of things but found her to just be hateful. Savage had some bad attitude goin on to but we kind of expect that from a brother
I have become such a fan of this series that they are almost like reading about distant family and enjoy every minute of every book but as said above this one had me torn.
I also think jim was a bit off with this one i could barely tell between may and savage and even butches boston accent was hardly detected it was definitely not like it was in past books.

with all that said i am so hoping that Lassiter's book is the works i just love him to death. Cant wait for the next book i dont think anything would stop me from reading any BDB book

This book is a fantastic addition to the series.

This book moves the series forward and gives you all the feels, laughter, and comradery that you come to expect from J.R. Ward. I love how the characters act consistently true to their nature and their choices are believable. So many moving pieces that come together in the end with hints towards future books. I was glued to this story from start to finish.

Not my favorite....

Let me start by saying I am a HUGE fan of JR ward and the BDB series. This book however, is not my favorite. I felt like there were too many side stories trying to develop and way too many words. I’m all for descriptions but I felt like it was just overkill in this book. The lead female, May, has to be the most aggravating female character in the entire series and I will forever give her a side eye for her stupid selfishness. The narration was great as always. It took me all the way to the end of this one to get excited, the epilogue with regards to Lassiter. Now that is a book I can’t wait to listen to. Overall I give this story a 3.5. Still worth a listen.

Mae is a second hand character

Sorry, I'm not into those female lead characters that for some reason everyone thinks is strong and selfless, however they show only weakness throughout the entire story. Perhaps she can be described better as brave due to stupidity and selfishness. I prefer a female lead that treats the male lead with respect, after all does it not take a lot away from the male when they take the verbal and sometimes physical abuse, making them look weak? I do enjoy the brotherhood but the female's are hit and miss

Chapters (seemingly loose) converging to 1 end

I am not sure I've liked it all. The narration was very good, sometimes the voices a bit difficult to tell apart but hey big broad men have mostly similar deep voices, so it's fine.
I've been struggling with the story... more specifically with the jumping here and there till way pat 3/4 of the book. I had the same problem with the wolven book earlier this week... it was like dragging many different stores apparently not related to a final culmination which did not make (mostly) any sense up to the last bit of the story.
it might be a technique but I get lost or better annoyed by it... everything proceeds chapterwise and whenever a chapter is spelled out I am worried I'll be switched to a change of scenery...up to the very last culminating part. How annoying. I had to switch off the narration much more often than I normally do, even when I had plenty of time.
why am I having jr ward's stories being narrated to me? Well, Wrath story caught me a long time ago and ward's language is powerful in the description of all her males and their characters, that's why.
maybe reading it would have been different i.e. better but I love to listen to worlds &stories being narrated to me 😉
