Review: The Chosen by J.R. Ward

Review: The Chosen by J.R. Ward The Chosen Author: J.R. Ward Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The Chosen is a novel that I have both wanted and dreaded.  This fifteenth book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series was to be a make or break book for me.  Suffice to say, the WARDen found and worked that special magic.  Though there are some highs and lows, overall I liked it – my crack is back! ****Needless to say, this is the 15th book in the series…if you haven’t read the series, there will be spoilers.  If you haven’t read through The Beast, there will be spoilers.  There are a few elements to the...

Review: The Beast by JR Ward

Review: The Beast by JR Ward The Beast Author: JR Ward Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Hello. My name is Jen. I am a recovering BDB addict… Yes, I was one of the many who felt betrayed by JR Ward when she wrote and released the previous Black Dagger Brotherhood book, The Shadows. I wanted to read The Beast because 1) I love Rhage and Mary, and 2) I wanted to see if I was finally over my obsession with all things BDB. In the end, I’m glad I read The Beast, and I probably would have enjoyed it more had The Shadows never happened. Generally, The Beast is a fun...

Review: Blood Kiss by J.R. Ward

Review: Blood Kiss by J.R. Ward Blood Kiss Author: J.R. Ward Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Blood Kiss is the debut novel in Ms. Ward’s spin-off series, Black Dagger Legacy.  For fans of the series, it is a fascinating look at how the Black Dagger Brotherhood will increase the number of soldiers along with checking in on previous couples.  Those new to the world may enjoy it, but won’t have the full appreciate as followers will. I enjoyed the continuing story of Marissa and Butch: that the happily-ever-after (HEA) continues but not without work and choice.  The fact that Butch tries to shield Marissa, even though her work brings her face to...

Review: The Shadows by JR Ward

Review: The Shadows by JR Ward The Shadows Author: JR Ward Reviewer: Jen Twimom What I’m Talking About: I freely admit that I am a JR Ward – Black Dagger Brotherhood junkie. I will devour a book, pick it apart, complain about what did or did not happen, and still go back for more the following year. I preordered The Shadows the day it was available. I cannot stop myself. With that said, this book may be the one that breaks me. I don’t know if I can keep coming back… I guess I’ll find out next year. Please note, this review is written in mind of those who are familiar with the series and...

Review: The King by JR Ward

Review: The King by JR Ward The King Author: JR Ward Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: JR Ward’s twelfth endeavor in her extremely popular Black Dagger Brotherhood, The King, is the ambitious tale covering the lives of several key characters: most notably Vampire King Wrath and his lovely Queen, Beth. The pair was the focus of the first book, Dark Lover, and they have played central rolls in a number of the subsequent stories. However, this time around we get up close with Wrath and Beth as they deal with the pressures placed on the monarchy, Beth’s desire to have a child, the snobby glymera, and rival vampire, Xcor along with...

Saturday Conversations 03/30/2013

Saturday Conversations 03/30/2013 Waiting on a book… Yes… that was me this week (and the past year!)… Waiting for the release of the eleventh Black Dagger Brotherhood book… Lover At Last by JR Ward. I was so excited for this book that I actually paid the ridiculous price for the Kindle version – just so I could have it download on to my Paperwhite at midnight. I’ve been excited about books before, but never so much as Lover At Last. It’s not my favorite series, it’s not the best story out there, but something about JR Ward keeps me coming back for more. Also, a driving factor for getting to the book...

Saturday Conversations 09/29/2012

Saturday Conversations 09/29/2012 Magnificent Misfits Looking at the rather insane collection of books that line the shelves above my desk, it occurred to me that almost all of them have a good bit in common. One of those things is the use of that most relatable underdogs: the misfit. Be it the hero, heroine, or sidekick (especially when the sidekick gets their own book the next time around!!), a misunderstood protagonist makes for a yummy read. From John Matthew in J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood to Nucking Futs Nix in Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark, and Mina Wentworth in Meljean Brook’s The Iron Seas, misfits rock. Let’s chat… Who are your favorite...

Sunday Snippet #100

Sunday Snippet #100 Lover RebornAuthor: J.R. Ward Publisher: NAL HardcoverReleased: 27 March 2012REVIEW HEREAfter a moment, Blay glanced over his shoulder, toward the door into the butler’s pantry. Clearly, it was the beginning of a back-away.Hey, as you leave, Qhuinn wanted to say, will you do me favor? I think my left ventricle is on the floor, so don’t step on it as you pull out? Thanks. Great.“Are you feeling okay?” Blay murmured.“Yeah. I’m going to go work out with John.” He’d already said that. Fuck. This was a train wreck. “So there you go. Where you headed?”“I’m going to go… get some food for Sax and myself.”“No Last Meal for you...
