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

From Goodreads:  Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment is a heartbroken shadow of the vampire leader he once was. Brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel, he fights again with ruthless vengeance- and is unprepared for a new tragedy. Seeing his beloved in dreams—trapped in a cold, desolate netherworld—he turns to the angel to save his former mate, only to despair at the path he himself must take to set her free. As war with the lessers rages, and a new clan of vampires vies for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between an unforgettable past, and a future that he doesn’t know he can live with… but can’t seem to turn away from.

My Thoughts:  I have been waiting for Tohr's book since the beginning of the series (I know I have said this many times).  I really liked him as a character from day one and after the tragedy that befell him, I wanted to know more.  He seemed like such a sincere character; he cared so much for his friend, Darius, his wife and his adopted son.  Unfortunately, I didn't quite love this book.  It was nice to see a happy ending for Tohr and to see him recover from his mourning but I also thought he was kind of an ass in this book.  I understand that he was grieving but at times I just didn't like him and he didn't seem like the same character that I had originally liked so much. 

I did enjoy seeing more of Xhex and John Matthew's relationship and I am curious to see how things will go with Layla and Qhuinn after some big developments towards the end of the story.  I also liked that No'One finally got some peace and could forgive herself for what happened to her in the past.  Overall, this wasn't a bad addition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, it just wasn't as epic as I was expecting it to be.  3 stars.
