The Beast

Fan favorite couple Rhage and Mary return in this gripping novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself...
For Rhage—the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart—life was supposed to be perfect. Or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. But he can’t understand or control the panic and insecurity that plague him. Terrified, he must reassess his priorities after suffering a mortal injury. And the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his—and his beloved Mary’s—world...

Wendy's great

Blah2 star

I loaded this right after it was released, here it is almost a year later. And I can't even get halfway thru it. It's the same book over and over. Boring.... 25


Tears5 star

Yep, there running down my cheeks. Guess you could say I once again loved J.R. Books. Never had a series of books that have kept me enthralled for years actually, as I read them certain ones over while waiting for the new one to come out. I hope our author can keep them coming. 55


The Beast is Best⭐️5 star

If you are a fan of the Brotherhood, then you are going to love this one. I laughed, cried, and cheered along with each chapter. Who is Markus? Will Manny find his sister? What about Throe, did he escape? So many questions...I hope the next book is ready to be published right now. I can't wait. 55


Ward has outdone herself!!5 star

BDB never disappoints!5 star

As an avid reader, I've found that through the years some series have lost my interest, as if the books are 'cookie cutter'. That is not the case with J.R. Ward's BDB series. I have loved this series from the first book and on. I understand the author may want to venture away but, man I just love the characters. The depth. I feel as if they are real, even though I know none of it is. Great addition to the series! Love Mary and Rhage! Can't wait until the next book! 55

The Beast5 star

This book is more than a five star rating! I am a fairly new fan of JR Ward. This is the first time I've ever rated a book and I've been a paranormal romance and fantasy book reader for a solid 15 years as my free time allows. This book brought out so many emotions with me. Very well written. A must read. 55
