This is Book 4 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. To get the full impact of the story I highly recommend reading the books in order. Much of the background story is prepared in previous books and to fully enjoy them you just need to know what happened before.
The books are fun and innovative. The dialogue is modern and the warriors are to die for. The series is quite violent and edgy but you get very nice romantic elements that will make you smile and cry.
The only thing I found a bit off-putting at first was that the book begins with a glossary. J.R Ward creates a certain amount of vocabulary that the vampires use but you get past that because the characters are great. I thought it was brilliant that the author obviously spend a good bit of time creating this world, the politics, the rules, and how people have to live their lives. I felt really sorry for the Marissa, the heroine of this story. Even though she is from the upper class she really doesn't have any rights and basically has to comply with what her brother wants, as her parents are dead. It is nice to get such a rich world to read about and moan about the injustices.
The Black Dagger Brotherhood are six vampire warriors who protect their race form a evil called The Omega and his disciples, The Lesser. The Omega wants to destroy all vampires and uses any force necessary.
In Lover Revealed the story concentrates on an ally of the Brotherhood. Butch O'Neal, who is an ex-cop and the only human ever, allowed within the Brotherhood without being an actual member. He is madly in love with the vampire Marissa but thinks she is out of his league. When he saves a vampire from the Lesser he get captured by them and tortured badly.Read more ›
I've read all the Brotherhood series and this, without a doubt, is the best one. Only by a very slim margin, because they're all good. I admit the language of the books takes a little getting used to, because of all the street talk, hip-hoppy, urbanness of the books - a woman trying to talk like a streetwise man - but once I got into the characters, I just had to have more. I've read all of them twice at least twice...
We met Butch, our lead character, in Dark Lover, the first of the series, when he first becomes involved with the Brothers and we see his relationship with the female vampire, Marissa, develop throughout. There's lots of miscommunication, things not said, things that should have been said - and all the usual suspects but, I felt for him when he felt Marissa was lost to him. I felt his pain, his frustration, his anger, his passion. Much credit to Ward for evoking these emotions in me. There's also the relationship he has with Vishous, a Brother and his best friend. It's odd but it's so not. You'll have to read it to know what I mean. And I loved the twist ending. I thought I knew what it was, but I was so wrong.
I have to say that the love scenes in this book, as in all the series, are some of the best I've EVER read. Probably THE best! From total tenderness to mad lust, it was amazing. Now THAT'S how to write a love scene! J R, you go, girl!
If you like a down to earthiness about your Vamp novels, then there's nothing left for me to say but to "buy, buy, buy!" Brilliant!
Read this book in a day and have already pre-ordered the next one... Vishous my man can't wait to hear your tale you feel me?
It's a good setup, with two well-suited characters who both need to find a purpose and to figure out who they are. But... there's a lot of plot to be worked out in this fourth instalment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. The romance suffers in consequence, fragmented between junior vamp John's schooling, the enemy Fore Lesser's plans, the usual bouts of Lesser-bashing, scenes at the nightclub and the whole what's-up-with-Vishous issue. The star-crossed lovers get it on and break it off more times than I could keep track of, for reasons that sometimes eluded me, and the emotional tension of their relationship threatens to wear thin as a result. I really liked Butch in Dark Lover, the first book of the series, but he's become a little too helpless here for my liking. He does have plenty of obstacles to work through before he gets the girl, and all this is well-handled and will keep you glued to the page. Meanwhile Marissa changes perhaps a little too easily from a cringing Barbie doll to an empowered woman with a socially crusading purpose.
The style is gritty and urban as in JR Ward's earlier books, though the prose sometimes droops under the weight of designer labels (I swear Grey Goose vodka is mentioned on every page!), and I had to resort to Urban Dictionary for one or two of the acronyms. All in all, gripping stuff, but still I feel a bit short-changed by the romance.
Next up is Vishous's story - at last, a relatively self-contained romance where (judging by the excerpt at the back of this book) the heroine doesn't feature in a previous book.
