#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s Black Daggar Brotherhood series continues as the cold heart of a cunning predator is warmed against its will...
Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous, son of the Bloodletter, possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father’s war camp, he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time—until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that cannot include her....
Lover Unbound book summary coming soon..
I loved V and his relationship. I loved that Jane was smart and witty. Everything was setup great though predictable in a lot of areas (to be expected). I loved that this is the first book out of the series that seemed to have real consequences. I feel like past books set everything up great but the actual peak had no real substance behind it. This one felt like it was real. BUT THEN THE ENDING. I couldn’t do it. Threw everything off for me. YIKES. It was cringeworthy. Read it for sure, because everything leading up to the end is great. But it was a smidge too out there for me. 35
Every one of these books has a brand new angle on the life of Brotherhood. I never know what will happen next, but I always enjoy the way each line of the plot is strained with conflict then resolved in unexpected ways. I was very satisfied with the experience of elements of both reality and fantasy mixed to perfection! 55
Vishous's story and I loved it. Not only was it V but we had some Phury and John mixed. Spending time with this group of men and their women is all about the bond between the brothers and the connection they have to their women and how fiercely they cherish both relationships. I know that I am not the only one who finds this series to be amazing and because you learn about each one of the brothers you become vested in reading more of the nooks to find out their stories and she how things end up for them all. 55
This series is so well written and after the first few books, it still has you holding your breath. I can't wait to see what happens to the brothers next!! 55
I had a hard time buying some of this one. Vishous is quite a cold hearted vampire. His history was a rough one, and I did enjoy seeing how it shaped him and his personality. A lot more about him made sense after reading this book. I felt a little sorry for him to be honest. Although I still don't quite understand how this odd relationship with Butch fits into the whole thing. Vishous is feeling a little sorry for himself now that his bromance has found a mate of his own. He puts himself at risk needlessly and ends up in a human hospital - this is one of the worst things that can happen. Human doctors can quickly see the difference between vampire and human anatomy (and I found some of the differences to be fascinating). Enter Dr. Jane Whitcomb. We get a ton of history about her - some of it was a bit confusing. I kept waiting for her sister to pop up again in the story and she never did. Maybe she does later? There were some pretty heavy hints dropped that I kept waiting for her to appear. Jane quickly realizes Vishous is different than any patient she's ever seen before. And when she's kidnapped to keep watch over her patient after he's rescued the "I love her - but she's human - but I love her - but she's human" begins and never seems to end. Well, eventually it does, and I think JR Ward wrote herself into a corner again. There are a few times now that she's really broken the rules of her own world again. I think this was my biggest pet peeve of the series so far. She finds a way to sort of make it work, but it's not quite within the rules either. There are some pretty big reveals about some of the brotherhood, which I like. And I enjoy seeing all them in each story. Revisiting past favorites is always fun - but I wish the women had a stronger appearance as well. 35
I don't know where people are getting the idea that Jane is boring ???? All the heroines seem very alike to me, and Jane isn't an exception. Her and V's relationship works perfectly, I very much enjoyed them being together!! ;) I would have preferred the ending a little different but it works. 55
It was a great book in the series, another one to add to the list! Can't wait to read the rest! 55
This is my 5th book in this series! I love these stories. J.R. Ward is an awesome writer. I'm about to download the sixth book. I've become an avid reader because of these books. I hope they keep coming cuz I don't want the stories to end! I get completely submerged reading these!!! 55
Would read over and over.. Great books.. Love them all so far! 55
This is by far the best book of the series thus far! Love, action, suspense... Wonderful. Absolute kudos! Can not wait to start the next one!!! 55
