29 April 2010 Black Dagger Brotherhood (Book 8)

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 - vampire warriors, defenders of their race . . .

John Matthew has been through his vampire transition and taken to the life of the Brotherhood with a vengeance, but he still can't shake the nightmare of his past and is unsure of his future as a warrior hero. He's made a promise to honour the Brotherhood and their fight with the slayers at all costs, until the love of his life is kidnapped and he is forced to make a choice that could change his life and the Brotherhood's forever . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars the boys are back in town 30 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
if your new to this series-Dont start here-they are Much better read in order-and you will get significantly more out of the reading.
This starts exactly where the previous book left off (do yourself a favour & read that immediately before reading this)
Xhex has been captured by Lash-and John Matthew is out to get his woman-come what may....
I wont go into detail too much-as this is a book of Oh My God moments-it fills in a lot of back story (Tor, Darius, Noone, Payne,etc) but this does not distract from the central love story of two lonely people who find strength to not only look to the future-but accept & live with the past-in all its messy glory.
JR Ward-keeps up the pace-and this is a real roller coaster of a ride (more like Butch & Z stories in speed)but once again the characterisation is superb- she manages to create a world that is believable and characters that not only are fully rounded, occasionally flawed individuals-but perhaps more importantly-you will care about each & every one of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but far fetched 1 Jun 2010
By Bamba
I love the BDB series. I haven't reviewed any others because I love them all, with the possible exception of Lover Enshrined & thought it would take too long to do so. I am reviewing this book because it has just come out.

I too like other reviewers have felt the newer installments of the BDB are slightly lacking. I was confused with Lover Enshrined when Phury was thrown out of BDB when in all other books BDB have always dealt with problems internally & in the earlier books you are kept more up to date with the other member BDB. That is what should have been in this book more, more interaction with the other members. Make the books a complete series, make them all interactive, like the older ones are.

The story of JM & Xhex is interesting & I think its about time they had their story, because we have been waiting for so long. However tough Xhex is, it was completely awful & shocking that she bounced back so quickly from her ordeal. If you think JM is still suffering from his which happened many years ago & Xhex is just completely fine 2 days after her horrific & much worse ordeal. It makes no sense, is lessening this awful crime & is contradicting itself.

I like the character of JM which sustains you through the book & therefore enjoyed it & this is why I have given it 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Black Dagger Brotherhood" series book 8 6 May 2010
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This series continues with the hunt for Xhex, and heading the pack of vampire warriors on their search is John Matthews. John is desperate to retrieve Xhex from the hands of his enemy Lash, yet as the weeks pass the chances of ever seeing her alive again diminish.

Xhex's captivity is brutal and I can't image any previous BDB leading lady not only surviving it, but fighting for her freedom until the end (well maybe Payne...). Lash is definitely on top of Xhex's hit list, but John and several other members of the BDB want their own chance at him as well.

"Lover Mine" is a rollercoaster of a book filled with action, tension, passion and some truly heart breaking moments. Included is a further update on Payne, plus a blast into the past as Xhex's history is revealed. Lash has his own problems with The Omega, whilst the BDB warriors dive head first into any confrontations. There are deeply moving parts to this book, particularly surrounding Xhex's captivity and her resulting emotional state, yet she's paired with her ideal partner; after all if anyone can understand what she has endured it is John. There is more than one romance brewing in this book as Blay tries to ignore his feelings for his vampire buddy Quinn plus plenty of bloody battles, hospital visits, and some steamy sex scenes.

Xhex is one ridiculously tough female character, and whilst she may not be a typical leading lady she more than earns her own HEA with John. The quiet John quickly loses any self restraint in his quest to find and keep from harm the woman he loves, yet Xhex is not one to sit idly by waiting for her handsome prince to rescue her. Just as everything seems to settle towards the final few chapters, JRW pulls her usual tricks and introduces some wow! moments, leaving any BDB fan desperate for the next book. I'm keeping my fingers crossed book 9 will be Payne's story, but which big bad vampire could match her?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 2 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After the slight disappointments of V and Phury's stories, I was thrilled to find that I was gripped by this book from the very beginning just like when I read Rhage and Zsadist's.
John, Blay, and Qhuinn have been some of my favourite characters thus far and they did not disappoint me here. I loved John's anguish and love for Xhex and the fact that he has grown into such a formidable warrior is fantastic. I think Ward really captured this same strength with the internal strength that she gave John in the first place. I was also happy to see that John reaches out to the brothers for help and they do.
The interaction between Qhuinn and Blay is delicously rife with sexual tension and definitely one of the strongest aspects of the novel. Saxton's arrival really confirmed Qhuinn's position in the relationship dynamic between him and Blay for me.
I think Xhex is one of my favourite heroines. She is strong when she has to be, vulnerable when she can be, and deadly when she wants to be.
I thought Lash made for an appropriate and excellent villain.
One thing I did think was lacking was John's recognising the tension between Qhuinn and Blay. I wanted him to at the very least see more of the changing relationship between the two and how this is affecting him too.
But I loved this novel so much and am so proud of Ward for bringing the series back to its former glory.
