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?

    "LOVED IT!!!"

    I???m a colossal fan of this series; I look forward every year to the time when J.R. Ward and Jim Frangione will take me away to the Black Dagger Brotherhood???s world, and I will get completely lost in the drama, passion, tension, sensuality and ultimately romance.
    So, did Lover Reborn do it for me? ??? Absolutely without a doubt, although the romance and tension didn???t come exactly from whom I expected, it never took anything away from my enjoyment; the character???s progress and growth proved sufficient to engross me from beginning to end.

    In a way, I felt Ward was trying to give us a different kind of Romance, the kind that???s not easy or happy, but tortured, and after having spent almost 5 years with Tohr, I wouldn???t have believed it otherwise.
    Did he get the best Shellan? Probably not, but I thought he got just what he need it.
    Is almost a fact now that the series has taken a new direction, where the main couple is no longer the center of the story, but just another in the many plots and updates in the novel, and I can sense some might not be happy with the change. In my case; I???ll take anything Ward gives me as long as she continues to capture my heart and attention.
    The side stories are amazing and so realistic; I constantly forget that I???m in a fantasy world and that these guys are just a bunch of vampires in Caldwell NY.
    One more thing I love is the fact that the Lessers aren???t as important, and we are starting to get a different kind of evil, one that is not going to be as easy to identify as such, but the gray area between good and evil is going to come into play and it's going to force you to dig deep and question your likes and dislikes for these new guys.
    In conclusion, the action sequences are some of the best if not the best in the series, the drama is at its all time high, and last but not least the writing is phenomenal.
    The hints???. Well, more than hints of what's coming for Blay and Qhuinn are gonna have you wishing 2012 away.
    I LOVED IT!

    NARRATION:
    Jim's delivery is superb in every aspect, with the minor complaint about his female voices, but honestly at this point they don???t even bother me at all because he is the reason why this book is not only 4 stars
    Just one thing to the new audio listener, it takes a few chapters to get used to his voice and delivery, but once you do, you won???t have it any other way.
    Look at the ratings for this book, so you can get an idea of how highly Jim's performance has been evaluated.

    "Bravo!!"

    Don't start with this book. Start in the beginning, and read all the books in order. They just get better, and better. I think there's a whole new beginning in this book. Unlike most series, that seem to go stale after awhile, Ms Ward, has completely recaptured my interest in the series, with this book. I love how she has several stories going on at the same time, and the new group of bad guys are really getting interesting. Unlike the lessors though, you kinda start liking these guys, hoping they will join forces at some point. She leaves enough unresolved stories, to mark your calendar for the next installment. The narration is excellent, to make it a "must listen"

    "Only 23 hrs, that's it?"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Reborn the most enjoyable?

    Jim and the expectation of what comes next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    oh my, as soon as I met V he was mine, and if he weren't mentioned I would be upset. That said, in this book as I get to know Xcore a little and start to understand him, I like him more. He's is letting go of who he thought he was and learning who is really is. I like that.


    What about Jim Frangione???s performance did you like?

    All of it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The in between, where will it find you.


    Any additional comments?

    More please.

    The introduction of new characters in the story.

    As always he does an excellent job. He is so in tune with the characters.

    "J.R. Ward keeps me guessing and up all night"
    Would you listen to Lover Reborn again? Why?

    I have listened to all the black dagger brotherhood books twice and I find that JR Ward leaves me with just enough at the end of each book to makes antsy for the next book.Her books always grab me from the beginning and I am hooked until the last paige wanting moor.


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

    My interest in the subject matter is already there. I have all of Chris Feehan's Dark series and I really wish she would write more.


    What about Jim Frangione???s performance did you like?

    His performance let me shut my eyes and use my imagination to be there, It is like old time radio shows.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did not want to put the book down, but I had to sleep and do other things as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I really do not wish for Jr Ward to rush her next book because she does such a good writer but I am waiting with baited breath for the next book

    "Great Story Including More on Other Characters!"

    The story is mainly about Torment's journey through grief - but the story also touches on several other established relationships as well as some newer ones. Being a big BDB fan, it was great to see interactions with other characters I have grown to love throughout the series. The first few books in the series mainly focused on one relationship - but this continues to draw you into the BDB "family" and keep tabs on the goings on.

    I have read some reviews that this book was disappointing because there wasn't much in the romance department. Personally, I don't feel liked I missed out on anything. In fact, I feel like it was one of the books I enjoyed the most - mainly because we got to know more about other brothers and those involved in their lives in some way.

    The book ended on kind of a cliffhanger of sorts - I'm not going to say what so it won't be given away - but I have questions and wonderings on what will happen with certain people. Needless to say, I can't wait for the next book!

    "Another great book, but a little too long."

    I love JR Ward and the narration is great. The story was a little too long and most of the book was focused on other characters. Definitely worth the credit though.
