Dark Lover J.R. Ward Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
See where it all began in the first phenomenal novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series...
The only purebred vampire left on the planet and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killed—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate—Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.
Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of the Brotherhood and blood frighten her. Yet his touch ignites a dawning new hunger—one that threatens to consume them both...

User reviews about this book
I liked the book it was written well and very…hot…
But a lot of the dialog and word choice was off. The way Brotherhood spoke sometimes seemed old and etiquette, and spoke handsomely but, other times it felt as though were speaking as teenagers saying totally, whatever, bro, like,etc. The author sometimes used the word thing(s) as descriptors which I thought was…interesting. Also, hopping into the 10th chapter I decided it was too many point of views being that the only real character development we saw was Beth and Wraths. Once I got to the 20th chapter I skipped everyone’s pov except for Butch, Beth, and Wrath, and didn’t miss anything of importance. If we really need a THIRD POV, Butch’s pov alone was perfect. We didn’t need Mr.x, Beth, Wrath, Havers, Marissa, Butch, and Jose’s pov. There was too much going on. She definitely had more room to show us more of Beth and Wrath, or even Butch and further develop characters instead of the quick “this isn’t right” inner battle the 2main characters had and then suddenly in on chapter it’s “but it feels right I guess I’ll give in” to push the story further.
Other than that great story. Character development in the main characters were great for how short the book is and the development of the supporting charters was just enough for you to want to read another book to find out more about their story and how they developed. 4/5 or truly 4.5/5
Not the best
I feel like this booked lacked character development , emotional description of the characters. It was fast moving but without some more details felt fragmented and hollow . Not interested in continuing series but out of sheer principle needed finish the book .
One of my favorites.
My cousin introduced me to J.R. Ward when I was about 14 years old. And here I am at 26 still reading this series over and over. BY FAR MY FAVORITE SERIES!
True romance with a twist.
I am a read and reread al this series and can’t get enough of their world.

I hate that I’m hooked on this series
By Dawn inNJ
I really wanted to hate it. The cheesy names of characters and how difficult it is to tell who is who when you first start into it is mind numbing but with a dozen more books to go, I’m sure I’ll get to know them all. I can’t put them down some I MUST love it.
