Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

Title: Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1)
Author: J.R. Ward
Release Date:  September 6th 2005 by Signet Eclipse
Edition: Mass Market Paperback, 393 pages

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

My Thoughts:
In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly war going on between vampires and their slayers. Six vampire warriors, a secret band of brothers, defend their race, but none likes killing more than Wrath, leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Wrath is the only purebred vamp left on earth and has a score to settle with Lessers, the slayers who kill their kind and murdered his parents. But, when a member of the brotherhood is killed leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence and unaware of what she is, Wrath must lead her into a world of the undead and a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

This is an amazing read! I have read this book and this series over and over and over again. In this book you are introduced to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. They touch on each one of the brothers, but not in dept, only Wrath.

I love the storyline and I love the plot. Just amazing! But be warned, this book is not for people under the age of 18! Even if you are an adult who doesn't like reading sexual parts in a book, then I would say this book is not for you, but if you don't mind sex in a book, then I recommend this book to you because it was amazing!

I really like Wrath and Beth. Wrath is the blind King, but even though he is blind, that doesn't make him less dangerous. To me it makes him tougher. And this book is not centered around his blindness at all, it touches on it once and then that's it. Wrath is a bad ass vamp, with a bad ass attitude and doesn't take crap from nobody. But when he meets Beth, lets just say that attitude didn't make it very far when it came to her. I really liked Beth. I feel she is the perfect person for Wrath. She could calm him when need be and she brings out a side of him that no one else gets to see.

The two, Wrath and Beth, go through so much in this book. From the death of Beth's father and never getting to me him, to Wrath trying to help Beth transition in to their world and his feelings for her.

The other Brothers; Rhage, Zsadist, Vishous, Tohr, and Phury, I like already. You only know a brief amount of each one and it leaves you wanting to know more about them. The brothers who caught my attention, was Zsadist and Vishous. You will just have to see.

Butch played a big role in this book and I really like him. He was a hard ass and sarcastic. But when he meets Marissa, I loved it. And Marissa, what a sweet girl.

The Lessers, a being who use to be human but traded their souls and try to eliminate the Brotherhood. The Lessers are some dangerous scary thing. *shivers* I'm not going to touch on them much.

This book was filled with a lot of action, a lot of drama, and a lot of cursing! This is a must read people! Only if you can handle it. Are you up for the challenge? If you want to explore the adult paranormal genre, how about you start here. :)
