Book Review: The King (BDB #12) – JR Ward

This book is part of a series called Black Dagger Brotherhood. I would recommend reading this series from the start, starting with Dark Lover, as it otherwise might confuse you as this book moves on from where it left off the previous books with a few new characters.

#1 J.R. Ward’s # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.

Long live the King

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them. The question is, will true love win out… or tortured legacy take over?

Favourite Quote – Lover Awakened

“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came … and I was awakened”

In some books I have a quote that sums it all up for me, makes me cry or laugh or and gives me shivers.
The following quote comes from Lover Awakened – Book 3 from the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. This story is about Zsadist, or Z, and his journey from being a cold, mean nasty Male to an friendly, gorgeous, open and soft Male.

Book Three: Zsadist’s Story

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other – six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her…

Book releases I look forward to in 2014

There are a few books coming out this year I’m definitely looking forward to and their release dates are even marked in my phone, Filofax and calendar at work!

Let me introduce them to you:

The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood) – J R Ward ( 1 April 2014)

Long live the King

I loved the BDB series for a long time, the last book I wasn’t really pleased with. It didn’t grip me as the other ones did but I did promise myself to only read the next book if it was about the king. Little did I know that the next book was about The King! So imagine my excitement when I did found out. I have pre-ordered it for my Kindle, I was too late with signing up for the Virtual Signing with JR Ward. Maybe next time, or maybe I can find a Special Edition at Barnes & Noble.
