Lover Enshrined J.R. Ward Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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—six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. And now, a dutiful twin must choose between two lives...
Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood's bloodlines alive. As Primale of the Chosen, he is to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished.

As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself- she sees the emotionally scarred male behind all his noble responsibility. But while the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, and tragedy looms over the Brotherhood's mansion, Phury must decide between duty and love.

User reviews about this book

  • Wonderfully put together

    By Maxine Laws
    This book touches deep down on so many heavy topics of this world and graces them beautifully. Phury reminds me heavily of my brother who struggled, but finally cleaned up and did amazingly. It brings tears to my eyes to witness it in this book and feel so proud and happy things are slowly working out in both the brotherhood, and Phury’s life.
  • Don’t understand the hateful reviews

    By EveryNicknameWasTaken88
    Almost didn’t buy this book because of the reviews and I’m so glad I did anyway. Yes, there’s a lot more going on, and it makes the plot that much better. Seeing Phury’s battle with his addiction was built in truth. His actions were that of an addict, they were not meant to be met with a positive reaction. The mindset of an addict is not always logical. Everything was intentional, down the crossing timeline and the first time the slept together. I loved this book and am excited to see the series continue. ***I will also say this book had some potentially triggering content related to killing and John’s rape.***

    Omg what happen J.R.? Were you rushed w a deadline? I mean the whole “wizard” showing up out of nowhere and his drug addiction. More annoyed than anything. I felt zero compassion for Fhury. The timeline was all over the place. For that I blame the editors. This was a pretty big miss for me.
  • People were a bit harah

    By Islandberg
    There was only one spot that wasn’t spaced properly for me. The grammar is because the author is writing from the perspective of the characters. Mr. D is a Texan lesser with bad English and grammar. So naturally, the writing will reflect that. It isn’t because it’s poorly edited like so many reviews state. It’s because it’s written that way. The book wasn’t bad otherwise, but I got irritated with Phury. I wanted to shake him so he’d sort out his issues. The situation was a slow burn... really slow. But otherwise it was good.
  • Worst book so far

    By jjdolly
    The last one with V was borderline and I had hope that Ward would turn it around for Phury and get back to the caliber of story she did for the first 4 books but no dice. This book was awful. I skimmed about half of it. No romance, no chemistry and Phury was barely even involved. He popped up every 3 chapters or so and most of his scenes weren't even involving Cormia! Too many storylines and too much focus on the new vampires. Phury deserved better.

    Fhury has been lost since Zsadist found his mate. His drug use is increasing and his inner-demon whispering in his ear (quite literally) are about to drive him insane. Always the one to do what is best for everyone else, he's volunteered to become the Primale and mate with the Chosen (all of them). There's a lot of denial of feelings, reality, needs, and desires in this one. Fhury is the ultimate tortured soul. Cormia is the ultimate innocent. She's been manipulated and forced into a mating ritual (don't worry - no forceful sex or rape) with a vampire she hardly knows. Fhury is the perfect gentleman, perhaps too much so, and as she comes to know the gentler side of his soul, well, she falls in love. Here was the on again off again type of thing that I'm not really a fan of. One chapter they're about to get together, the next he's convinced he's no good. While it did show his paranoia and schizophrenia in a way that shows his crazy side off well. Forced to confront both his addiction and his little demon, As always, the story of the Black Dagger Brotherhood rolls right along - which I love. John Matthew, Qhuinn, and Blay are all starting to come into their own as adult vampires, but there's a wrench thrown into their lives as Torhment returns after so long. There's also trouble brewing with Lash that I expect to see grow even more over the course of the next few books. A great addition to the series overall, but I did get a little tired of Fhury's wavering over Cormia, and Cormia's lack of action towards Fhury (although I do understand why she didn't because of the way she was raised). The best part of this one was the continuation of the urban fantasy elements.
  • Not the authors best work.

    By ClaudiaS1234
    I don’t know what went wrong with this book. The characters are likeable but I am bored. There are too many side stories going on, such as with the villain, and a club/bar owner. Nothing is really happening with the main characters and im on page 200. I have skipped so many pages and the nothingness just keeps coming. I enjoyed several of the previous brotherhood books, I thought I would like this one too.
  • Another great in this series

    By Caveman282
    Another great read in what has been an incredible series so far! Can't wait to read the next one.
  • Frustrated with Phury!!!

    By Ugggggg!!!
    I never write reviews, but this book really frustrated me. I was diggin the sacrifices of. I could appreciate that he wanted others to be well and I was looking for him to get a world changing happiness because of all his sacrifices. What I got was his weakness and lack of character....I won't say more but boy do I want to blast this review with some colorful choice words that belts out how I really feel.. Uuuugh, so not a fav or a fan of Phury but a must read to get to the rest of the great story line.

    I have enjoyed this series so much - but this book is a disappointment. Phury must be the author's least favorite brother. His story is all about fighting his addiction. The love and tenderness for Cormia (horrible name) is completely shortchanged compared to the previous books. I kept waiting for his story to get better but it never did. Still, it is a must read if you want to continue with the series. Just don't expect much.
