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