J.R. Ward's # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.As always, I get really excited going into a new black dagger brotherhood book. I've been with this series for so long, I just freaking love it. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked being back in Wrath's (the blind king) head again. Dark lover was a good book, but Wrath has never been one of my favorite brothers. Zsadist, John Matthews, Vishous, Qhuinn, etc. I mean hello?! But back to the subject at hand, Wrath has always been a tough one and in this book we see him being the a**hole that he typically can be, but we never really saw it directed towards Beth (his mate). That was kind of different. With Beth wanting a baby and Wrath being dead set against it, that started a lot of the drama, and to top it off, the Band of Bastards are still trying to dethrone him. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to what happened. I love the Brotherhood and I'm glad we got to see them all again in this book, except Phury. We don't really see him much anymore.
Long live the King…
After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.
Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.
The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?
One thing I didn't like in this book was all the povs. Every single time something happened the pov would switch right when things were getting good and it would always switch to someone I didn't care for. That was another thing... I didn't care for some of the povs besides Wrath, Beth, and John. I'm sorry, but I do not care for Assail and I can barely remember who he is. I found his pov to be completely unnecessary. Xcor and the shadow guy (whose name I can't remember at the moment) are interesting enough and I don't really mind reading from them, but that Assail dude took up way too much of the book for me. And I also didn't really care for the flashbacks of Wrath's dad.
But other than that I enjoyed the book. I read it quickly even though the book is massive. And I also got so many feels towards the end there. I was so happy and excited :) I don't know what book is next in the series, but whoever the person is, I'm excited for them.
