OK if you are new to JR Ward and you are reading the reviews for this book, stop, search for Dark Lover by JR Ward and start reading the series from the beginning. If you start with this one, because it's not the best in the series it might put you off and you'd miss a really good series.
Now if you've read all the others and are about to get this one, it's very much worth a read for the devoted JR Ward fan. The secondary characters really make this book. Qhuinn, Blay and John Matthew are really coming along (and boy I hope JR Ward writes Blay's story), Xhex (dispite the rediculous name) is growing into a very interesting distraction for John Matthew, Revhenge is getting to be much less two dimensional, and Tohr better get some plot in the next book or that's just plain teasing!!
Everyone has their least favourite borther and Phury is mine. I'm glad his story is done with now because I really was getting fed up of listening to him whine in the previous books. At least now his main story is over with I'm hoping we can get on to some more interesting brothers. Don't get me wrong though, good things come out of Phury's contribution to BDB series. His role as primale marks a change in the BDB novels, where traditions are altered and a more symbiotic relationship with the Scribe Virgin can be acheived. I did enjoy this book and am still very much enamoured with the world that JR Ward has created.
We'll see what the next one in the series holds...
