Re- Read Reviews : Dark Lover


Dark Lover by J.R.Ward 
Series :  Black Dagger Brotherhood #1
Paperback : 393 Pages
Published by Signet
Language : English
Source : Bought a copy.

Blurb : 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 undead - a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

First Sentence -
 Darius looked around the club , taking in the teeming , half naked bodies on the dance floor.

I'd read this book earlier in 2011 already. While at that time this book not my favorite but still I'd liked it enough to continue the series (And thank God for that). Because the series got much better after the first one. This book had Wrath , the Leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood as the central character and Beth, one of the Brother's half breed daughter as his heroine. Wrath is your typical, brooding, mysterious and tough exterior Vampire. Behaving sometimes hot and sometimes cold towards Beth. Making Beth confused as to what he is upto and all. Not gonna go into much detail about this one because truth be told the plot is kinda predictable. The best thing though is the world building which is the base of this series. I completely fell in love with the Brothers. Beth's platonic friend Butch was one hell of a side character too. I look forward to re-reading his story as well. So while I wouldn't recommend this book but the series definitely. 

My Rating : 2 out of 5 Stars
