All in all I enjoyed this latest offer from JRW, and can't wait for Phury's story. A bit sad that the series is coming to an end - but then there's V's sister in the wings!
p.s: Glad he and Butch have cleared the air on that "thing" they had going. That was interesting!
LOVER UNBOUND sees everyone from previous books returning and there's a lot of growth involved within the story as a whole. As usual JR has several distinct plotlines running simultaneously and a host of secondary returning characters who continue to grow and evolve.
As we begin Vishous is having dirty thoughts about his roommate. Even though he's disgusted with himself he can't seem to stop wanting what he can't have, and watching Butch all lovey-dovey with his wife Marissa is driving him crazy. Good thing he has his S &M outfitted Penthouse and a list of females eager to be bound and dominated. Its while at his `love nest' that the Scribe Virgin makes an appearance blowing his mind with some life changing news and demanding that V become `Primale' (basically he must marry a harem of chosen females and propagate the declining vampire race) Not really V's cup of tea but that's the least of his problems as that very night sees him getting shot in the chest and taken to a human hospital where he's operated on by trauma surgeon Jane Whitcomb.Read more ›
Ward's BDB is just as addictive as Kenyon's DH, with just as much intensity and complexity, providing the reader a glimpse into the amazing world that both readers have created, with characters that are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but nevertheless easy to love.
I was just about to read Ward's latest, Lover Unbound, when I read the comments on Amazon.com's site. I was quite alarmed by the number of really negative comments of the book. Could the quality from be so drastic from the first four books? There were come really nasty comments, so I started to read LU with great caution.
Well, I have to say after finishing the book, I am happy to say, for me, the book was very satisfying and the negative comments were unfounded. The story stayed true to Ward's BDB, and perhaps the ending is not what you might expect (or want), it was not as horrible as some of the reviewers alluded to. The story was further developed in the area of the Scribe Virgin and her world.
The reason I give it four stars and not five is because I wished Ward had given Vishous and Jane more time, Lessening Society and Omega.
Nevertheless, I look forward to seeing how Ward develops the BDB - Phury, John Matthew, Qhinn, Blay, and perhaps another meeting with Manny.
V might just be the most complex brother yet. His past, present and future clash with his personality in such a way that each highlight the other. I loved the snarky banter between the main characters. I also really enjoy how this novel is about so much more than simply the main characters. Readers get up close and personal with the entire BDB family throughout, getting to know each just a little bit better. John’s story, in particular, really resounds with me. I can’t wait to see what kind of a warrior he becomes. Everyone’s quirk’s and idiosyncrasies make them who they are, and are what I truly love about each of them. And the way that the characters talk is fantastic. It’s so real & raw. Even though the characters are centuries old, they speak modernly and keep up with the technology of the times, embracing the present while still honouring the past.
This was a fantastic tale on so many levels. Chemistry, suspense, love, loss, and redemption all make their way into the fantastic story, leaving me with a smile on my face and reaching for the next novel in the series.
