Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Age Appropriate for: Adults and/or Mature Young Adults
Synopsis: The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a secret band of vampire warriors, fighting against a group of slayers, in order to save their race. Rhage is the most dangerous of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, and when he meets Mary Luce, a human, everything in his life is turned upside down.

Review: If I can use just one word to describe the Brotherhood series, it will be that it is ADDICTING. I enjoyed Dark Lover and Wrath's character, that I just had to read its sequel. All I can say is, Lover Eternal is even better than the first one! I think it is mainly because of Rhage. I love his character, and do like him better than Wrath, in fact. I think he's a lot more relate-able in a lot of ways. I also liked the character and plot development in this one as well; effortless and smooth.

In truth, this series is not for everyone. However, I do suggest you give it a try. When you read these books, forget about trying to decipher the book's literary merits and just enjoy the addicting stories of these brothers. It's a light, fun, and entertaining read. Sometimes, that's all you really want in a book. 4 stars for this one.


  1. I also LOVE the BDB! I've read all of JR Ward's books and they are very addicting. You're in for a treat---they get better with each book!

    These books are like cocaine! I think they're a more intelligent, slickly written version of Twilight, and yet I read the first six in a matter of weeks! I'm kind of glad that I don't feel the urge to keep reading, but a big fan I know is incredulous at my decision. "Don't you want to read Rehvenge's book? . . . Why NOT??? It's a BDB book!!!" LOL!

  3. I am really so happy you like these. I read them all in two weeks and then read the newest one - Lover Mine - in 36 hours! I know I have an problem but I quite alright with that! LOL

  4. @Kelli: Glad to know they get better with every book! In fact, yeah, I liked Rhage a lot more than Wrath. But I do like Beth more than Mary Luce. Haha.

    @E: It is like an adult version of Twilight, minus the over-the-top "I will protect you" dialogues. LOL.

    @Outnumbered Mama! I remember you recommended this to me back when I had the 165 followers contest! So thank you, I'm pretty much addicted :)
