Book Description

April 1 2014 Black Dagger Brotherhood (Book 12)
J.R. Ward's # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?

4.0 out of 5 stars JR Ward turns focus away from Brothers April 13 2014
By Sandy S. TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
THE KING is the twelfth instalment in JR Ward’s The Black Dagger Brotherhood series focusing on an elite group of vampire warriors and their King. Like most of the previous storylines JR focuses on more than one developing relationship and story as well as the continued war with the Lessening Society (not so much) and the Glymera (vampire ruling council). This is Beth and Wrath’s continuing story as Beth enters her needing and Wrath refuses his mate’s desire for a family.

The book focuses on several storylines as per Ward’s style and each may or may not overlap at some point in The King. Like all of her previous books, The King is not a stand alone novel as developing relationships and backstories continue throughout each instalment. The storyline fast forwards the series several months up to approximately one year.

Beth and Wrath: Beth wants a baby and Wrath’s continued reluctance will pit the mates against one another. Wrath’s tortured family past and the vampire’s history of birth and death are major obstacles that Wrath is unable to overcome. Beth and Wrath’s relationship will enter a difficult period, one where words will be exchanged and Wrath’s emotional stability will be questioned by the Brothers and his friends. Much of the ruling vampire history is revealed through flashbacks and memory at various storyline intervals.

Iam and Trez and Selena: This particular part of the storyline focuses on Trez’s relationship with the Chosen Selena but also on his destination as the Shadow Queen’s daughter’s consort. When an ultimatum is handed down, Trez makes a deal with the devil-one that will exact revenge for a wrong brought down on Trez but places Trez in a precarious position of losing everything and everyone that he loves.

This book felt like a return to the earlier books for me. I liked the Wrath/Beth story line and the others in this series. Except, yeah, sorry, the shadows are not that enthralling for me. But it's okay, I think what I love about this series is there is something for everyone and next book I could be more on board with them.

J. R. Ward continues to write books that keep me interested
and enthralled. Wrath and Beth are two of my favorite characters
from her black dagger brotherhood series and I hope we are going
to continue looking forward to more brothers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! June 2 2014

This was a wonderful book, and just getting reacquainted with Beth and Wrath was awesome. I like how the Ward keeps you updated on all the characters in each book. Also the other romances going on in the book are great distractions.
The only disappointment for me was that there was barely any mention of Quinn and Blay. Very disappointing indeed!
I would recommended this book on any day of the year.

3.0 out of 5 stars bit disappointed June 1 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not so interested in the new characters introduced and would like to have the Brotherhood back in the books
Just not as interesting without them
This is the first book in the series that I did not sit down and read all the way through in the first two days
Finding it difficult to keep interested in places and just cant get a real connection with Xcor etc sigh...
