Book Description

March 29 2011 Black Dagger Brotherhood (Book 9)

#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward's thrilling new novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself-only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can-but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL I WANTED AND MORE (then there's V...) April 3 2011
**Spoiler Free**
Ah yes, how sweet it is to be back with the Black Dagger Brotherhood. It was with some anticipation (understatement) that I cracked open the 489 pages I'd waited almost a year on, and it was with baited breathe that I began. Wondering exactly what direction JR Ward was going to take this 9th instalment in? Well I can tell you that with this one she does not disappoint, giving us fans exactly what we've been waiting for and then some.

Starting where LOVER MINE left off and with her usual flair (the first 4 words will have you smiling) we get; multiple POV's, evolving story lines, arse-kicking action and major injuries to most of the Brotherhood! We revisit past characters (Jose Del la Cruz) while being introduced to new ones, including (among others) the intriguing `Band of B@stards'. This group of 6 is around to stay and with them comes an endless supply of future story possibilities.

With blasts of tension, humour, romance and way erotic love scenes we witness a couple of characters fall apart, see unrequited love, get major hints of things to come, and while laughing with Rhage and Fritz in the billiards room we also worry about the future of the King. Even though our main love story here is not as dominant as in past books, I have no complaints as Ward manages to include and give us moments with each and every member of the Brotherhood mansion in one way or another. And while I ached for Qhuinn and Blay, then there was V. And oh the V. True?

As much as this is pegged as Payne and Manny's book LOVER UNLEASHED really belongs to Vishous and isn't it great (understatement) to be back in his, intricate, messed up, dirty mind.

This book is bittersweet for me: Another superb book by Ward, but I am also sad that I am now caught up in the series and have to wait just like everyone else for the next installment slated for March 2012!

I listened to the last three audiobooks in the series in quick succession. Because the last two ended on cliff-hangers, I could not wait to find out what happened next!

At the conclusion of Lover Mine, Wrath and Payne were sparring and she appeared to have broken her back. This book picks up right where we left off, and The Scribe Virgin allows Wrath to bring Payne to the "other side" to the Brotherhood's mansion. There was a feeling of excitement for me while listening to this because Wrath (being blind) does not know that Payne is the twin sister of Vishous. There is anticipation as Doc Jane is summoned to examine Payne, and she takes one look at Payne's face and realizes she is looking into the face of someone with the same features as her Hellren, Vishous.

Ahhhhh, Vishous! He is one of my favourite bad boys. He figures prominently in this book because he is Payne's twin.


Doc Jane soon realizes that the damage to Payne's spine is beyond the scope of her expertise and that there is only one person that can help Payne: Manuel "Manny" Manello. But how will Doc Jane be able to persuade the doctor to come with her?

The reunion between Doc Jane and Manny is pretty emotional. Let's not forget that Manny thought that Doc Jane was dead and that he also admitted that he had feelings for her. Well, she did die but not in the way that he thinks she did. And she still lives but not in the "normal" fashion. Understandably, Manny is confused and angry with Jane.

5.0 out of 5 stars This may be the best of the series Nov. 12 2011
By Lotusland Lady TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read the two previous reviews I have nothing to add. Lover Unleashed is terrific. I could not put it down and am now panting for the next in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I have enjoyed all the series but felt that some of the latter books were not quite as gripping as the first four. However,this is a good as it gets. If J.R. Ward had to take time off to write this book it was worth the wait.

One suggestion, read Lover Unleashed BEFORE you start "Envy" in Ward's Fallen Angels series. The main character in Envy is not only introduced in Lover Unleashed but Envy revolves around a situation which actually originates in this book. I found Envy more difficult to get into than I would have if I had read Lover Unleashed first. Not sure why they did not reverse the order of publication but such is the publishing business.
