Dark Lover – Review

Dark Lover (The Black Dagger Brotherhood #1) – J.R. Ward


In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

Review: I’ve read about this series of books ALL OVER the place and finally caved in and decided to give it a try. I’m definitely glad that I did cave. I LOVED this book. I’m even more glad that I purchased this book…Now I’ll be able to “check it out” when ever I want. I had a very hard time putting it down so that I could get other things done…You know like eating, laundry, sleeping. I loved all the characters….Wrath is tall, dark, gorgeous, and views Beth as a liability. Beth has no idea that she’s actually 1/2 vampire and gives crap as good as she get’s it. The other “brothers” tall, dark, gorgeous and ISSUES in all capital letters. Butch the cop…well he’s just beside himself. The lessers…they make really great bad guys….flat out EVIL!

What I REALLY thought:

Beginning: I thought that beginning started off a little bit slow. It also took me a little bit to figure out that the book itself is broken down and told from everybodies perspective. LOVED the descriptions of Wrath and all the brothers!

Middle: HOT!

End: INTENSE with a bunch tender thrown in for good measure.

sounds exciting. Is it really different from other vampire books, or is it just another well-written copy?
