Book Review: Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

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.

I have mainly stuck to the young adult vampire novels since Anne Rice, what can I say I tend to get stuck on things. So when my friend from back home on good reads recommended this book I arched a brow. In all honesty I thought I would not like it, but she is a good friend and she liked it so I decided to give it a fair shot at least. I am glad I did, I loved this book.

Dark lover is everything a Vampire novel should be, sexy and mysterious with some twists and a heap if mystery as well. The bad guys are really bad and the good guys well they are almost as bad as the bad guys but they have a code and morals and they follow them, mostly. There is an undercurrent of a love story of course but it fits I so well with the rest of the story I would not call it a romance novel, this is a Vampire novel with romance thrown in. frankly the hardest thing you’re going to have to do with this book is sort out your favorite character, the big bad Wrath, the handsome dangerous Thorment or perhaps Phury is more your style the good side of the twins..I am very much looking forward to the next book I this series my mail man is officially on stalk watch, I do not want to give any spoilers away but if you have not read this book and started this series and you like vampires it’s time to start I am a fan of the Brotherhood.
