And now, although I can't put my finger on the why, I can't really say I liked this book.
It's the story of Vishous, complete with all his weird practices. Maybe he's just not the tortured soul I've come to expect from JR Ward - he seems to be pretty much in control of his (love) life and I felt the female doctor picked out as the love interest was only brought in because it's a tried and tested formula. Although the relationship between V and Butch features quite heavily in the first few pages, it's then almost conveniently brushed aside.
I finished the book within 2 days and although I know there has to be a new slant on becoming immortal, I was disappointed with the ending, or maybe confused as to why JR Ward felt she had to go down that certain track.
I don't know.......maybe I'm just not V's biggest fan. Zsadist and Rhage were my absolute favourites, and maybe there's just no living up to 'em!!
I'd be interested to see if anyone names THIS book as their favourite, but my advice would be 'buy the book' - you'll need it to keep up to date with the newcomers.
V has his destiny revealed and he's not in any way warming up to it. Still dealing with this he gets shot by a lesser and ending up in a human hospital finding a woman that makes him instantly growl: Mine. As Butch and Phury rescue him he demands that Dr. Jane is taken with him and arriving at his penthouse V doesn't really understand himself but is accepting the emotions he's feeling. V and Jane are discovering each other as Phury finds a darker side and John Matthew's journey continues. Still destiny will not be so easily discarded and for every joy there will a price of pain. Will V take control of his destiny or will he submit?
As I close this book I felt like I was blown away by a hurricane of chaotic storylines, though the novel is starting strong I couldn't relate to the romance of V and Jane. It was like they weren't given enough time and space to tell their story as strong, almost overbearing sub plotlines take away your attention and this left me detached. V and his preferences in the passion department was something that could have been more developed as this is such a defining part of his character. It is briefly mentioned in a scene with a female but as things got interesting J. R. Ward seems to back out on it.Read more ›
When the first book came out, I was hooked. I remember being totally overwhelmed by Dark Lover, the story of Wrath. But Dark Lover and the subsequent books (up until Lover Unbound, that is): Lover Eternal (Rhage's story), Lover Awakened (Zsadist's story)and Lover Revealed (Butch's rather strange tale) all had something very compelling and special in common. They all carried on the continuity plot of the Brotherhood's battle on behalf of the Vampire Community against the 'Lessers', led by the Omega.
Lover Unbound pretty much ignores the whole reason these books have been so special to me. Vampire books, and sexy vampire books are ten a penny. But sexy vampire books with plot? Well, apart from a nod of recognition for Christine Feehan's Carpathian series (which I don't think hold a candle to the first three of JR ward's books) are about the only one's I know of.
V's story was pretty flaky, for me. Maybe because I'm not in to the whole DSDM scene and have never understood it at all. Maybe because, as a previous reviewer mentioned, this guy here is just nothing like the Vishous we encounter in previous books. None of his intelligence comes through. The explaining of his failing 'visions' was so superficial. Jane's character was cardboard. She was soooo unmoved on discovering he was a vamp. Totally accepting of his glowing/electrocuting hand... and totally up for the whole ball-gag and rubber mask scene V wanted to introduce her to.Read more ›
