Review: "Dark Lover" by J.R. Ward

From Goodreads:  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.

My Thoughts:  I am not a huge paranormal fan, normally I shy away from these types of books so when I heard amazing reviews of this book, I was pretty skeptical.  I picked up copy at the library but never got a chance to read it so when I received another copy in a book exchange, I decided I should give it a shot.  I cannot believe how much I enjoyed this book!  I really needed something fun and easy to read and this was it.  Yes, it’s another vampire book but the characters are awesome and the story sucked me in.  The various members of the brotherhood are unique and likeable in their own special way and I really liked Butch as a character.  The romance aspect of the story is great and overall this is a great fluffy read.  I can’t to read the next in the series (I can’t believe there are like 9 books!).  4 stars.

  1. I felt this same way you did, I am not a huge paranormal fan either but I love reading these books. They are just plain fun and the Brothers are great.
