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?

    "Amazing"

    JR Ward - I hope you read these reviews. This was my absolute favorite book from "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" so far. I cried twice, and none of the other novels made me cry even once. I even laughed out loud a few times.
    The story pace was fantastic, never too fast nor too slow. I thoroughly enjoyed having Tohrment play a major role again. I also enjoyed John, Zex, Vishous, Wrath and others. I really enjoy the novels that have a lot of the characters involved.

    I still have the one issue that I have with most of the novels. The 3rd person narration is written in the voice of the character. For example, when writing *about* a character, Ward will write words such as "Mayhap" instead of "Maybe". It's distracting at times, but the overall novel outweighed that distraction.

    Amazing book. Can't wait for #11

    "A BIG Disappointment"
    What disappointed you about Lover Reborn?

    The storyline between the main characters was really weak and close to pathetic. This is by far the worst book in the series. I think my love affair with the brotherhood have come to a sad end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything to take the bad taste out of my mouth from this book.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    As always Jim did a great job in his performance, it's just too bad the story was lacking.


    What character would you cut from Lover Reborn?

    No'One


    Any additional comments?

    J.R. is one of my favorite writers, but I see the direction in her storyline going in the opposite direction of what I want to read.

    "Well worth the wait!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Reborn the most enjoyable?

    I love the narrator for this series, Jim Frangione. He nails the vibe of the story and the characters every single time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I've been waiting for Tohr's story since his shellan was killed by a Lesser. He's a male of worth, and deserves his HEA.


    What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jim's narration really brings the story to life for me, in a way that I would never capture if I were reading the book. I will continue to enjoy this series in audiobook as long as Jim narrates, and I hope that never ends. He's brought me to tears, and made me howl with laughter.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Tohr went through the house he lived in with Wellsie, it was so emotional. Looking at all the things she loved, everything as it had been on the day she died. Very sad, and my heart broke for him.

    "Don't Hate It - Don't Love It"

    Overall the book wasn't bad but it just didn't have that great drama that I loved about Wards books through Lover Mine. I've heard others say that it feels like a transition book. I agree but then again I thought the same thing about the last book. Payne's story underwhelmed me and I was ready for hard hitting emotions and BDB fighting. Tor and Autumn's story was painful, painful, painful and then just not much. The real love story here was Thor and Wellsey and what he was prepared to do send her into the Fade. Lassiter and his journey out of the Fade was funny and poignant. Autumn was just kind of there as a prop. However, I will say the Autumn and Xhex scenes were quite good.

    JM and Xhex storyline wasn't bad but it seemed a little quick off the draw to start with the problems. Then they don't really communicate for months and finally JM has a revelation. Eh, whatever...

    Tor and Wrath.. I thought this friendship was well portrayed. It really gave us more insight into the relationship the king has with his oldest friend. Very well done.

    Blay and Quinn...they only had a few scenes but I must say they packed one of the most powerful emotional moments of the book for me. Layla and Quinn didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. Kind of anticlimactic at this point in the series. Ward's been telegraphing that one for several books.

    At least we got a little more of the humor of the BDB back. But we still need more of the wives although it was better this time. Doc Jane and Marissa but where is everybody else. Has Mary disappeared off the planet? Elena scurries out of the OR every once in a while but has no meaningful dialogue.

    The BOB are promising as well as the drug dealer. Lessers are just background noise without the Omega. I keep waiting for him to show back up.

    For me the real test of a book is whether I want to read it again. I finished this book about 3 weeks ago and really haven't had the desire to pick it up since. Read it, moving on and hope the next one is better.

    ***

    From the audible perspective, I love Jim's narration. He's the voices I hear when I actually read these books. He's just amazing.

    "Worth waiting for . . ."
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Reborn the most enjoyable?

    I really love all JR Ward's books, but also enjoy this narrator as well.


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

    There are so many in this genre, other authors in the genre include Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lora Leigh, etc. Hoping to see Laurann Dohner's work on audio soon as well.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was just as good as his previous. He's a perfect fit for her work.

    "BDB - the best vampire romance novel published"
    Would you listen to Lover Reborn again? Why?

    Recommend this book and the entire series. They are great. Yes I will listen to it again. I have the other books in the series. What makes this series so terrific is that there are multiple stories are going on at the same time. The characters are wonderful mesh of good and bad and the story is full of twists and surprises


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

    Absolute love this series. Lover Reborn doesn't disappoint. It's complex and wonderful. I love all of J.R. Ward's novels.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    No one and I mean NO ONE can top Jim Frangione's narration. I'm in love with his voice!


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best in the BDB series!

    "Good but Left Unsatisfied"
    Would you try another book from J. R. Ward and/or Jim Frangione?

    Yes.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The next book in the BDB series


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jim Frangione?

    Yes.


    Do you think Lover Reborn needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Exponentially yes. I really feel like I may deserve my money back since the ending was rushed and sloppy. There were so many story lines left undone and the Lovers Reborn was built up and then over with no great fan fare.
